Can't disagree with American Hustle at number one. Nebraska would share that top spot for me.

Catching Fire is the only one I have seen so far on your list. I'll catch Gravity, Hustle, Much Ado, Wolf on Blu-Ray one of these days.... maybe some of the other ones too.

A damn good movie, my list is more "favorite" than "best", I really enjoyed Nebraska and it would make my top 20.

Even though I've seen 40+ movies from 2013, I still haven't seen the majority of the movies up for Academy Awards, so there could be significant changes on the horizon, regarding my list.


Metalinmyveins/Cullen's Top 10

1. Stuck In Love (Directed by Josh Boone)
2. The Spectacular Now (Directed by James Ponsoldt)
3. Kings of Summer (Directed by Jordan Vogt-Robers)
4. Mud (Directed by Jeff Nichols)
5. Europa Report (Directed by Sebastian Cordero)
6. Disconnect (Directed by Henry Alex Rubin)
7. This Is the End (Directed by Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg)
8. Drinking Buddies (Directed by Joe Swanberg)
9. Before Midnight (Directed by Richard Linklater)
10. What Maisie Knew (Directed by Scott McGehee/David Siegel)
