Best Movies of 2013, According to IMDb Users

Waar

Over the past few weeks, and for the next few months, discussions will center on the best films of 2013. I did a list, the /Filmcast did a list and innumerable others will do the same leading up to the moment the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences crowns their best film of the year with the Best Picture Oscar.

But what do even bigger audiences think? Many film fans don’t have a blog, paper or podcast to spout off on. Many of those people turn to the Internet Movie Database to vote on the films they loved best in any given year. Now, the IMDB has published their top 50 films of 2013 according to over 10,000 users. Check it out below.

Here’s a link to the list. Each of these films needed at least 10,000 votes to qualify. You can go there to see films beyond 50, but we chose just to highlight that many.

47. Oblivion  7.0/10
48. Trance  7.0/10
49. Warm Bodies  6.9/10
50. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa  6.9/10

The important things to remember here are A) It’s international and B) 10,000 votes had to be cast for each individual movie. So that pretty much makes it a very mainstream list and very heavy on films that were released earlier in the year. But, that doesn’t mean a film that came out 5 days ago – like The Wolf of Wall Street – couldn’t crack the top two. Also, a few weird ones aside (Escape Plan? Really?) the list actually isn’t terrible. Two of my top ten made the top ten. What about you? What are your thoughts on this list?
