They also said "best" and then included Miyazaki, so yeah, they're really lying.

Personally I didn't like Before Midnight, the No 1 choice in the vimeo video.

I've seen quite a few on the following list:

50 Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
49 Oblivion
48 Fast & Furious 6
47 The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
46 Kick-Ass 2
45 This Is the End
44 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
43 Bad Words
42 Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
41 All Is Lost
40 Elysium
39 Man of Steel
38 Ender's Game
37 Despicable Me 2
36 The Railway Man
35 Thor: The Dark World
34 The Great Gatsby
33 Riddick
32 Nebraska
31 We're the Millers
30 The Butler
29 The Right Kind of Wrong
28 Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
27 Escape Plan
26 Prisoners
25 Don Jon
24 Carrie
23 About Time
22 Inside Llewyn Davis
21 47 Ronin
20 Rush
19 Saving Mr. Banks
18 Grudge Match
17 Blue Jasmine
16 The Book Thief
15 Gravity
14 Nymphomaniac
13 Captain Phillips
12 August: Osage County
11 Last Vegas
10 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
09 Dallas Buyers Club
08 The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
07 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
06 12 Years a Slave
05 Frozen
04 Her
03 Lone Survivor
02 American Hustle
01 The Wolf of Wall Street

Grudge Match - Stallone and De Niro - not as bad as most say it is
We're the Millers - entertaining enough for Aniston fans
Escape Plan - entertaining enough for Stallone and Schwarzenegger fans
Prisoners - some good scenes - good aspect ratio for TV
Gravity - exceptional
12 Years a slave - epic
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom - not on the list
American Hustle - good cast - could've been better
Wolf of Wall Street - Donna from Neighbours never looked better - some of my family really liked it
The Great Gatsby - mostly filmed in Australia, preferred the Robert Redford Mia Farrow 1974 version
Rush - good work from Ron Howard

I'm in a minority but I also really liked the two Tom Hanks films - Captain Phillips and Saving Mr Banks.

I've heard more good things than bad about Captain Phillips. I do'nt find the topic particulary fascinating so I didn't see it but I don't think many people really dislike it (IMDB score: 8.1/10).

I have the feeling that I'm forgetting some films. Anyway:

Masterpiece Wannabe
Inside Llewyn Davis: no masterpiece for me this year, but this could become one after another viewing.
The Master: It was released in january 2013 in France so I'm including it here. I HAVE to get the BD to watch it again.

Gravity: immersive IMAX experience, blabla. What is less talked about and far more impressive to me is that we're entering Leone territory: a director is controling every single pixel and sound wave to create the exact effect he wants.

Very Good
The Wolf Of Wall Street: the most fun I had this year.
The World's End: not as great as I expected, still fucking great.
Only God Forgives: this guy has balls.

Nice Try
Mud: nice to see them doing movies like that again.
Blue Jasmine: it's actually what everyone says: the best Woody Allen in years. That doesn't make it that amazing, but it's cool.

Overrated Near-Emptiness
Blue Is The Warmest Color: Palme d'Or? I cannot get over it. It's far from being bad, but it's been so talked about (in good and bad) for nothing in France that... I just don't understand.
Superman: this one was really bad. But the guy has two Robin Hood dads so there is that.

Didn't see it but I will as soon as possible
12 Years A Slave
No Pain No Gain
The Lone Ranger
Alabama Monroe: the masterpiece of the year for all those who saw it, so I should give it a try.

As I said in the other thread, it was a very exciting year. A Scorsese, a Wright, a Coen and an Anderson movie? All of them very good if not great? I only miss a good Fincher.
But the biggest thing to happen in 2013 was probably the ending of Breaking Bad, and I can tell you the biggest thing to happen in 2014 is that the first episode of Community is airing tonight in the USA with Dan Harmon back behind the wheel.

I went there to check my list and compare it to this year list, so here is a little update. I've seen some of the "will see asap" films:

12 Years A Slave 5/10
The Lone Ranger 4/10
Alabama Monroe 4.5/10 (but nice try)

Don't waste your time with those ones.
