JackRabbitSlim: The Counselor was one of the most disappointing films of 2013, wtf is it
doing on this list? Oh right, because it's directed by Ridley Scott and
starring Michael Fassbender.....I'm sorry but no! What about The Act of
Killing, Beyond the Hills, Saving Mr Banks, Good Vibrations, Frozen?
AckinautAidan: Good Vibrations was my favourite film of 2013 and is a really underrated
Matic Senčar: you freaking kidding me? no the hobbit the desolation of smaug and the wolf
of wall street? and freaking springbreakers...
jdbabyv3: You know I actually used to like Roeper but now after putting the WORST
damn movie of the year "Spring Breakers" as one of the Best?! Are you
freaking kidding me with this crap?! AND he doesn't even have "Hobbit" or
"Wolf of Wallstreet" on the list?!?!?! Spring Breakers is the biggest piece
of crap to come out in a long time and why anyone likes it, let alone puts
it on a Best of 2013, list is beyond baffling. There is absolutely NO
universe where "SB" is a better movie that "Wolf of Wallstreet. NONE
CommentPoster10: Where's Anchorman 2?
sokseb: Gravity? The Counselor? This Is The End? Those are three movies that don't
belong in this list.
KingKrally: I am actually happy that somebody put Spring Breakers in the top movies of
2013. It truly is an unforgettable movie. However, I don't like that This
is the End was put in the list. There are SO many movies better than that
garbage of a comedy that came out in 2013.
rps121: I like you Roeper because you have are one of the few critics out there
that has a open-mind to movies like most people are. But wow, not putting
PRISONERS on your list and instead put THIS IS THE END ? Now that's kinda
Jordan Anderson: No love for "The Place Beyond The Pines", a film that I absolutely adored,
and Richard gave a perfect score to. Oh well.
tropicAces: I respect Roeper cuz he doesn't GAF what people will say about putting
things like Spring Breakers or Counsellor

Pwn3dbyth3n00b: lol what spring breakers?
AngusMilneVids: Thank you for being the one person who was open minded enough to put spring
breakers in your list. I applaud you for that. Even if you hated it you
cannot deny it was well done the acting for the most part was good, the
cinematography was beautiful, and the movie had by far the single best use
of music all year during a montage.
Jesse Burleson: I like a few of Roeper's picks. Check out my top picks of 2013 on my blog:
VIEWS ON FILM. com
Tevin Phelps: Robert De Niro shows up and gives us the best ten minutes of acting he's
done since Angel Heart (1985).
Chris Ramos: Spring Breakers?! Really?! That was a awful movie!
Anadi Mishra: i hated the third half of this is the end.
DJGOLFVR6: maybe you & franco should make a movie next year. i liked the counselor but
doesnt qualify to my top 10
matrixlarry: wow wtf , its like this guys does not know the meaning of the words best
and worst !!!! wow
Dusto22: Where's Star Trek: Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, The Wolverine,
Some of these movies that are on Roeper's list, I didn't even know they
even exist. So they're probably not even popular.
420Slaterson: My top 13
2. 12 Years A Slave
3. The Wolf of Wall Street
4. The World's End
7. Pacific Rim
8. Spring Breakers
9. Blue Is The Warmest Color

Mottahead: Springbreakers is a great movie. I was actually pleasantly surprised by
this flick and couldn't understand some of the bad reviews.
Gavin48: Spring Breakers? Come on that was misogynistic crap
danny ingersoll: how the freak is this guy a critic freakin amatuer
Jacob Current: Enjoy your Reviews Roeper... But wow. Personally not a fan of this list.
But you are entitled to your opinion.
CineFreakDude: Great list Richard. I agree with all your picks.
tim shimm: there you go you freaking maggot that's why im not hitting the subscribe
button 75 % of your movies I have only heard of from fags like you I only
know gravity American hustle this is the end spring breakers and captain
Phillips you suck.
Jay Dee: spring breakers seemed like a documentary and 12 years a slave was a punch
to the chest.
Ataturk Shirinov: No Inside Lleywn Davis? That at least should definitely be there. Big
MegaTraveler2011: spring breakers? and you put evil dead at the worst with girl most likely?
you lost it, roeper
allisoneuph1: Yeah. The Spectacular Now was such a great film.
KronantheBarbarian: I appreciate your list I have some of the same films on my list and the
others are on my must-see list but #9 "12 Years a Slave" Not sure what you
didn't see it in but I thought it was a tour-de-force, but it's better at
#9 than off your list. I think it's a masterpiece. "Captain Philips" was
great. "Out of the Furnace" was so slow with so many themes that didn't
even suit the overall theme and story.
ben sten: Let me save you some time. The Counselor sucks. This is the End sucks.
Spring Breakers sucks. Out of the Furnace wasn't great. However every other
movie is worth seeing, especially The Spectacular Now.
roloug95: springbreakers and this is the end? I'm done hahaha
Seanorman88: James Franco aside, Spring Breakers was one of the worst movies I have ever
Jun Kazama: Oh gosh everyone complaining about Spring Breakers will you STOP!? It's not
the worst film of the year, it's the most misunderstood. It's an ART film,
it gives insight into today's society and uses this insight to fuel it's
R-rated exploitation engine. Infact, the New York Times gave it a 5/5 SO
STOP, JUST CAUSE YOU DIDN'T LIKE IT. I'll understand if you name Movie 43,
or Grownups 2 (or even The Counselor hehehe) as worst, BUT PLEASE STOP
BASHING SPRING BREAKERS. Fyi, I also loved The Hobbit and was sad that it
didn't make the list. AND FINALLY, IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH HIS TASTE, THAT
JUST SHOWS WEATHER HIS CRITIQUE OF FILM CAN BE USEFUL TO YOU OR NOT!
henman09: 1. 12 Years a Slave
4. The Wind Rises
5. Blue is the Warmest Colour
8. Before Midnight
9. All is Lost
10. The Act of Killing
jerimiahcork: I was really hoping The World's End would be on here.
DragonLordUltimate: No hunger games?
rayman samanta: THE WORLD'S END is good
jonathan meyer: Spring Breakers? Really Richard
Dylan Oxendine: worst list ever....
syco lee: NO PRISONERS? NO THE WOLF OF WALL STREET?
Christian Gatica: He put this is the end over Her...
Bayly Hunter: Where's anchorman 2?
Kilburn Hall: Richard- The best movie I enjoyed in 2013 was The Lincoln Lawyer based on
the novel by Michael Connelly. Great soundtrack by Marlena Shaw. Rap remake
of California Soul." Marlena Shaw - California Soul (feat. Ya Boy) (Lincoln
Lawyer Remix) Love the soundtrack.
You're right. Mathew McConaughey the next Paul Newman. Gravity and Captain
Phillips were a horrid piece of crap.Other than that- right on with your
best 11 movies of 2013. Saving Mr. Banks another piece of crap as was
Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug which lived up to the title, it was a
desolation. Did you forget The Butler?
Jonah Sparks: Though I do disagree with some of the movies on his list... its HIS
favorite films of the year. Get over and stop moaning and groaning. All
film is subjective he liked a movie you didn't and he hated a movie that
you liked. Its all subjectivity and opinion. Overall though a pretty decent
list with some bad clunkers.
PoxHaunted: Came here due to springbreakers in the thumbnail..wat da balls
StevieT2411: Wait so springbreakers makes the best of 2013 but not hobbit, the
desolation of smaug?
