Vote! Best of 2013


Okay all, this is the post that will initiate what I hope to be my crowning achievement thus far in my blogging career. My objective is to achieve a top 10 list consisting of the best films from the year 2013. Sounds fairly simple, right? Just pick the ten films I feel best represent the year that was in cinema and post it for all the world to see… While you are not wrong in thinking that, I’m dreaming of something much grander…illustrious, timeless. I would like all of you, yes you: fellow bloggers, readers, and film-lovers…wait for it…to create the list!

You think I’m crazy, don’t you? Well, before you burn me at the stake, hear me out. The way this will work is each of you will vote for your top 3 films of 2013 in the poll located in the “vote” section of the main menu above. I’ve listed a significant amount of films for you to chose from. However, if there is a flick I’ve overlooked, you may add the answer to the poll yourself. You will only be allowed to vote once, so think your answers over. Obviously 2013 is not over yet and December is home to several Oscar-caliber films such as “Her,” “American Hustle,” “Out of the Furnace,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” So, if you plan on seeing any or all of these films, or any film that you feel might crack your top 3, you might want to hold off for a bit until you’ve seen every movie you want to. Voting will close sometime in January, obviously the earlier the better! Lastly, when you complete your selections, please comment below the poll that you have participated so I don’t have to track you down for no reason. Then, when polling closes, I will compile the results into a top 10 list for all to read and share. It’ll be a list that we, true cinephiles with opinions and voices that differ from snobby critics, can be proud of. A list that any film-lover can understand!

So to recap…head on over to the “vote” section of The Cinema Monster, select the 3 films you feel are the best of 2013…and vote! Then quickly comment below that you’ve voted so I don’t have to sniff you out… then you are done! It’s sooo easy! There is no excuse for you not to participate! I’m calling in all the favours…I will hunt you down. I will spam your Twitter account, Facebook, Blogs, Websites…any and all forms of social networking and interaction until you vote.

Now, I’d just like to give a big thank you to all of my beloved readers and fellow bloggers in advance for your time and votes!

  1. #1 was Gravity… without a freaking doubt. #2 for me was Mud, which was awesome. And #3 for me was The Place Beyond the Pines, mostly because I had to choose a third, and I didn’t see very many new releases this year.

  2. I’ll be catching up with some 2013 movies and going to the theatres for 2-3 more I’ll hold off till a week or two later to put in my vote πŸ™‚

  3. I voted. I’m the guy who wrote in Monsters University.

  4. Ooh, this is great. I will hold off on voting until the very end, to ensure I’ve seen as many movies as possible, but I WILL vote!

  5. excellent idea Joseph.. I will be one of the last to vote probably, but I will do so.

  6. Still so many movies to see.

    I’ll vote later. πŸ˜‰

  7. Love this idea Joe! I will have to vote later in the month as I am watching a couple of movies during the Dubai film festival next week then deciding. Will keep you posted buddy and keep up with the creative ideas! πŸ™‚

  8. I voted – now, keep in mind that I’ve only seen a handful of these… great idea!

    • Thanks bud! You could have held off if you wanted to see more flicks, but it’s up to you and your movie watching schedule. Great to have you on board!

      • I probably won’t end up watching a ton of the movies on your list – they’re just not my thing… and by that I mean I have no desire to see some of them. Know what I mean?

      • Completely understand! By the way, what exactly put you off about Contracted. After I finished watching it, I immediately thought about you and your opinion, then re-read your post on it. I thought you’d love it! Some of the decisions were idiotic and the way it was handled could have been better, but it didn’t ruin the film for me. I loved the premise and gross, icky bits lol.

      • I didn’t think it made any sense why she killed her three “friends” – and it didn’t make any sense to me why he screwed her. Surely she STANK. No one is that hard up. Except maybe Brian.

        And then overall – she KNOWS she’s the most unhealthy person in the world – why wouldn’t she go to the hospital and stay there? Normally shit like that doesn’t bother me but I think I was so excited from the trailer that those things let me down.

      • She must’ve stank lol, I agree with you there. It’s weird cause she is a good looking woman before the decay lol. I think she murdered her friends because like the virus was taking over her mind and such.

  9. Nice poll. I want to see Inside Llewyn Davis, The Wolf on Wall Street, and Her before I vote since I feel those are going to be the strongest movies within the next few months.

  10. How fun! Great idea! I’m gonna go vote right now. πŸ™‚

  11. Voted. You’re right though, there are too many potential “best of” movies that have yet to release. Those films, however, will not need my help in the poll so I went with all horror flicks. Surprise!

  12. The poll is missing the best film of the year so far, Iron Man 3. πŸ˜‰

  13. That was hard man.

  14. I voted, but it was hard choosing just three from that list.

  15. Voted – my favourite film of the year wasn’t on your list though!

  16. I voted. So many more movies I want to see.

  17. I still havent seen Gravity! I’m such a loser! I’ll get my vote in as soon as possible

  18. Gravity, All is Lost and Blackfish

  19. I’m on my mobile device for a while and the vote option isn’t appearing or me.
