Really good list, but Django's gunfight at Candieland needs to be there as well.

You know its a bad year for films when scene's from Olympus Has fallen and White House Down make it onto the list. On the plus side, that video clip from The Place Beyond The Pines is brilliant. I watched it on a plane and as a result didn't really like it. That has made we wanna get the Blu Ray and do it all over again!

This list has nothing to do with Empire's thoughts on the movies as a whole - it's great set-pieces. You're not really going to get a memorable set-piece in a quiet, character-driven drama. Anyway, all I've heard about White House Down is that it was great fun.

Seriously.. these were the best set pieces you guys could think of? What about the whole Loki betrayal bit in Thor 2? That was more stunning. Or for that matter the world engine kicking in in Man Of Steel.

Then what about all the stuff you missed, the Adrenaline hyped Hit Girl in Kick Ass 2? Pacific Rims Kaiju fights. Heck, The 'House Party' in Iron Man 3.

And if we're talking animated films, why not Despicable Me 2's Minions going after the kidnapped Gru, or for that matter, the compound assault towards the end?

Don't mean to be a stickler, but Hugh Jackman played Jean Valjean, not Javert.

Opinions innit. I liked the list.

I hate to be the kind of poster who says "I can't believe you miss out x or y." But to paraphrase Sam Jackson in Jackie Brown, I gots ta be that kind of erm .. poster.

So I can't believe you missed Jim Broadbent and fellow pensioners escaping from an old folks home in Cloud Atlas.
Hell, as much as I loved Cloud Atlas as a whole, the old folks storyline by itself would be a movie I'd happily pay to see.

You know, I tend to hear the opposite opinion from most people and it's refreshing to encounter someone who actually favors the Broadbent sequence. I thought it was great myself.

Not sure if I had a go at Empire anywhere in my comment did I?! I was simply suggesting that because, in my opinion 2013 was not a great year for films, Empire probably didn't have a huge list of set pieces to choose from, hence the inclusion of two rather mediocre set pieces. I have seen both the films in question and both set pieces were only ok.

Not the most popular film of the year, but surely i wasn't the only one who loved the hot air ballon vs the tornado scene in OZ, the great and powerful, a thrilling few minutes of pure raimi-ism in a family film, and the transition from black and white to a full 3d technicoloured oz was breathtaking! He even ends it by throwing us over a waterfall and the camera never cut away - fanstastic!!

Fire the intern who wrote that the hero is named Javert and not Jean Valjean! Hugh Jackman plays Valjean and Russell Crowe is the villian Javert. Sacre Bleu!
