My 2013 Wrap Up

It's the last day of the year. And once again I will be running down the list of films that I have seen throughout. There are of course some obvious omissions here. I still haven't managed to catch Fruitvale Station, Mandela, and August: Osage County... just to name a few. But I did get around to seeing 96 films this year (not an easy task). And beyond that, I found the ratio between movies I loved and movies I hated was a little bit heavier toward the loved side this year. Perhaps that's a sign of better movies getting released... or more likely I just managed to dodge the worst of the movies that came out. That being said, let's get to it:

My Bottom 10 Of 2013:
The Book Thief
