Amidst the legends and sightings throughout the world, the Winchesters are about to face a monster only the internet could create.

It's safe to say, this was an above average year for movies. I can tell because I had such a tough time narrowing down my list to only 10 picks. Great pictures like The Act of Killing, Frances Ha, Upstream Color and Her were all on this list but, as I saw more and more stuff, those ones sadly fell away to the Honorable Mentions, which I have included at the end of this article. I would recommend each of those films as highly as the ones that did make the list.

That stiff golden boy they call Oscar had his list so why can't I? That's right film fans I'm back for another Top Ten list to count down my favourite flicks from 2013. In keeping with last year's Top Ten format (and if you couldn't already tell by the title) this list will consist of the 10 films from last year that I, Andrew Burns, personally both consider to be of the best quality and/or enjoyed the most. With exception of a small handful of films from 2013 I pretty much have viewed most of the best of the best from last year. Without further ado my list of the Top Ten films of 2013.

It's been a two picture race since last fall between 12 Years a Slave and Gravity. 12 Years a Slave has always been seen as the front runner, but in recent weeks Gravity's popularity has been increasing. The movie with the most nominations, as Gravity has, wins the majority of the time. And it makes sense, because having lots of nominations shows there's tons of support within the Academy for the film. In recent years, however, that theory has lost some value. While Argo and Life of Pi won Best Picture and Best Director respectively last year, it was Lincoln who actually had the most nominations. And did anyone actually remember that Hugo had more nominations than the Best Picture winning The Artist?

"Oh good, I could use a laugh."
Matt's latest troubles in life manifested in Episodes taking shots at a number of targets that needed to be made fun of. Greedy families. Gossip rags. Petty criticism of weight gain. Sex scandals. Illegal substance use. Rehab. Driving under the influence of alcohol. Financial worths. Invasion of privacy. Hollywood is such an awesome place to live in, and Matt was constantly reminded of it. With sixty million to his name, he still wanted to work. Hoping to return to NBC, the guy had such an ego that he actually felt insulted over the notion of him having to do a read. After all, this is the life of a has-been celebrity.

The bunker may be the safest place they know but that won't stop the odd ghost from getting through the cracks.

"Did you see the nineteen year old?"
Matt LeBlanc is truly messed up in the head. While he is not a deliberately vile person, he is nearly incapable of empathizing with the difficulties that other people are going through. This also included the harm that he had inflicted on Jamie. After getting dumped by Jamie for cheating on her (with Dawn), Matt did not even feel bad about it. He just simply moved on with no effort or consideration for the hurt that he had caused. When confronted by Beverly on this issue, Matt was quick to make all sorts of bad excuses, making it seem like it was not his fault. He just appeared more interested in grabbing food off the table, than in looking at his on-going relationship self-sabotaging.

"Man, we are just plowing through that family."
Somehow despite the plug being pulled on Pucks, things still got worse. The all too overly pleasant trio of Carol, Andy and Myra delivered the news, but without really saying anything at all. Just more standard meaningless crap that ultimately spelled the end. As usual it all came out way too positively, which only made the news sound that much less optimistic. Everybody knew that Pucks was dead, and were preparing to jump off the sunken ship. Stoke skipped filming to stay on the movie set, while Matt made an unsuccessful attempt to get onto Andrew's new show. Beverly and Sean waved the white flag in relief, as they had an outside lunch to the sounds of seagulls squawking. Morning mysteriously brought her much younger sister, Dawn, to work. As fate would have it, Matt would end up having sex with Dawn at his home.

I saw The Wolf of Wall Street in early January, a few weeks after its release in a New Jersey multiplex nestled in a dingy strip mall not unlike the one where Jordan Belfort (the Wolf) founds his corrupt brokerage firm. By this time I had already heard the varied reactions of both critics and friends. The primary complaint from the "thumbs down" camp was of boredom: the procession of increasingly hyperbolic antics -- orgies, Quaalude binges, dwarf throwing contest, etc. -- of Belfort and his gang of greedy brokers evoked little more than a hum-drum raise of the eyebrow and a stifled yawn. Detractors whinged that the shock-value wears thin and the exploits quickly become tedious. I agree. However, I think this was precisely the point.

"Yeah, I'd drive off that."
It is just so typical of Carol to say something like this. This time it was after Beverly pointed out that Castor was Carol's Thelma and Louise. It turned out that things between Castor and Carol did not just end with the awkward impalement from S3E4. Carol had to talk about how great she thought Castor was, while not knowing that Castor was at his shrink's office talking about this stupid woman that he had to hug. So just what is wrong with Carol anyways?
