2013 Top Movies

I know, I know. I’m super late to the 2013 movie rankings party. I’d like to think you all will believe it’s because I’m just that thorough. Honestly, I think the truth is that I just have a fear of commitment.

I undoubtedly take these rankings more seriously than anyone in my position should but ranking things, especially movies, is my jam. And I’ll say the same thing I say every year that NO ONE SEEMS TO READ.. .just because something is ranked 23rd doesn’t mean that I didn’t think highly of it. I saw nearly 50 movies in 2013 and I primarily only see movies that are well reviewed or come recommended from people I trust.

This year I’ve given up on my dream to rank that high as most people seemed to think that was unnecessary or something…

So, because I’m a man of the people, I present to you my top 25 films of 2013. Read more
