2013 Movie Roundup

This is a set of entirely subjective ratings, even more subjective than my usual subjective ratings. It's the kind of list that would put The Godfather beside Flash Gordon, if you follow my meaning. It's based purely on whether or not I found the film enjoyable, which sometimes depends more on mood and circumstance than the film itself. So take it in that spirit. I'm not sure I can justify my choices otherwise.

Listed in order of release (for the most part). Asterisks after the most exceptional in the category.
