Letterboxd, the social media service developed specifically for cinephiles, has unveiled its 2013 Year in Review feature and it’s quite fascinating. For those unaware, Letterboxd.com acts as a sort of cataloguing system for its users, as one inputs each film they watch, their personal rating, and then is able to interact with friends by seeing their ratings and personalized lists. It’s a great service, and I began using it last year as a way to keep track of every film I saw in 2013 (as did Matt). Letterboxd has now assembled an extensive Year in Review feature made up of its users’ ratings, breaking things down into various categories.
The highest rated film of 2013 on Letterboxd was 12 Years a Slave, while the most watched was Django Unchained (counted in 2013 since it came out so late in 2012). The highest rated animated film was Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2, while the most divisive film proved to be Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives. You can peruse the full, highly entertaining feature over at Letterboxd.com. Also, if you want to follow me on Letterboxd, click here, and if you want to follow Matt on Letterboxd, click here.
