Best of 2013 - Craigy's take.

The Best

10. Elysium
Allegory as subtle as a jack hammer didn't ruin a film that I admired for at least trying to be science fiction. The characters are conflicted and desperate, and seem to be living moment to moment. In an age were sci-fi films (really, all of genre) are dominated by super geniuses that always make the right moves, it was refreshing.

9. Evil Dead

5. The Conjuring
Although I'm not usually one for supernatural escapades, even I have to respect "The Conjuring" and its kitchen-sink approach to jump scares and possessed things. "Based on a true story" has never been stretched so far, and I ain't mad about it.

10. American Mary
You had me at “stripper”.

9. World War Z
Was it true to the book? Was it better than the book? Did it stay true to the book? I have no idea, I never read the book. Brad Freakin' Pitt folks. All your arguments are negated by those two pools of fantasy we call eyes.

10. John Dies at the End
Again, being caught up simply in the story, “John Dies at the End” stands out for simply going against the grain. The story is nonsensical times, but it has a definite destination and it gets us there. It just has a lot of fun on the ride there. Formulas are easy, so it’s nice to see a film that throws said formula to the way side.
