Over the past week, we’ve been looking back on 2013 and trying to whittle down what we thought were the “best” of the year. Obviously, this is all subjective. There is no mathematical formula at work. I feel I shouldn’t have to state this, but there are people in the comments section who feel that everything should be appraised “objectively”, which in this case would simply be “These are five actors who starred in movies” or “These are five people who directed movies”. The debate comes over who can be considered the best in their respective fields. Who gave a performance that we still can’t shake? Who put together a powerhouse of a picture? Who created the score we’re still humming? Who was the bane of our protagonists? Who’s on the cusp of the A-list? These are fun questions to ask, and hopefully they’ll stir up some fun (and respectful) debate.
Hit the jump for my miscellaneous “Best of 2013″ picks. Check back from December 28 – 30th for the Top 10 Films of 2013 lists from me, Adam, and Dave.
