It’s that time of the year again folks! With 2014 only a few hours away what better way to end 2013 than by summing up the year’s top 10 films!
The year has been filled with so many fantastic films to feast your eyes on that it’s hard to pick 10 let alone put them in order. But I’ll try my best.
10. The Lone Ranger
Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer make a great duo in Gore Verbinski’s latest offering. 2 and a half hours of pure fun no matter what the press says. It’s the best substitute we have for Hammer playing Batman for now at least.
9. Stand Up Guys
What looked like a terrible comedy with a few classic actors thrown into the centre for good measure actually turned out to be a heartwarming film which proves that Pacino’s still got what it takes to entertain us. Even after his career’s near death experience in Jack and Jill…
Park Chan Wook gives us drop dead gorgeous shots in his first English Language film, with Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode giving great performances and Prison Break’s Wentworth Miller proving he’s not just a pretty face with his first script.
7. The World’s End
Edgar Wright brings his Blood and Ice Cream trilogy to a fantastic end which will have you craving Cornetto’s once more.
Danny Boyle manages to twist and turn until the very end in a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat
5. The Purge
A great premise for a slasher film which deserves a sequel.
Disney’s take on The Snow Queen finally makes an appearance and does not disappoint. It’ll have you singing the soundtrack for weeks to come.
If you didn’t manage to see this on the biggest screen you could then you missed out dearly. It’s not just a film, it’s an immersive experience which will grab your attention and not let go until well after the credits roll.
2. In Fear
A thrilling game of cat and mouse in the Irish country side makes for the most terrifying experience of the year.
1. Django Unchained
Released in January in the UK and still 12 months later nothing has come close to the excitement that this brought. Call me biased if you must but Tarantino remains a God.
