New from Kevin Wozniak on Kevflix: Decade Rewind: The Best Movies of 2013

As the 2010’s have officially come to an end, I will be looking back at each cinematic year to give a personal decade retrospective of the best movies and performances of each year.  I will break down my Top 10 movies of each year, along with my favorite performances from that year.  I will also be listing my favorite’s from each genre, like Best Animated Movie and Best Action Movie, as well as best of the technical aspects, like Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay.  This will all culminate into my picks for the best movies and performances of the decade.

*Rankings of movies and performances are numbered from 1-5, with 1 being the best movie/performance.

*Gifs for each category are not specifically of the “winners” of each category, just one of the nominees.

 

 

 

 

THE YEAR: 2013

 

There wasn’t too much change from 2012 to 2013.  I continued my journey with the one sentence film reviews.  They were still only being published on Facebook, but I started doing them more and they were getting more popular.  I still saw over 100 movies, still went to Sundance, and still made sure I sought out smaller and weirder movies to As for the year itself, 2013 was pretty great year, as we got films from Martin Scorsese, The Coen Brothers, Alfonso Cuaron, James Wan, Dennis Villeneuve, Steve McQueen, and many other excellent filmmakers.  But what was really great about 2013 were the performances.  As I was making my top five for each acting category, I struggled with every single one and genuinely felt bad about leaving at least two or three really great performances off my picks.  Here are picks for the best movies and performances of 2013.
