2013 List of Shame or 25 films I should have seen this year

I've seen around 150 films in 2013 but due to my writing commitments for Yahoo, I've been watching a hell of a lot more television than ever before. As a result, I'm going to hold off on making my best films of 2013 list for a very long time. There are a huge amount of 2013 films I have yet to see and will have to find a way of watching before I can even begin to entertain the idea of making a top 10 of 2013.

It's always this way. I don't get the chance to see lots of films in the cinema and every year I say I will get better at it but never do. I need the cinema to be cheaper, to live closer to one and for my wife to be up for seeing more films.

Anyway it's all a bit of a guessing game as to what could end up on my top 10 of 2013 list but judging by a few of the lists I have been looking at, these are some of the likely contenders. In no particular order, here are the top 25 films I should have seen in the cinema this year but didn't and am now totally regretting:

The Place Beyond the Pines 

Before Midnight

Kill Your Darlings

The Selfish Giant

Thor: The Dark World

Short Term 12

Blue is the Warmest Colour


The Act of Killing


Pacific Rim

World War Z

The Bling Ring


The Spectacular Now

Blue Jasmine

The Conjuring

All is Lost

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 



About Time



The Great Beauty

That's one big giant unhealthy looking list and until I've seen a significant number of these, don't expect a best of 2013 list from me anytime soon.

What are the films you most regret seeing on the big screen this year?
