2. Frozen
3. Pain & Gain
4. The Wolf of Wall Street
5. You're Next
6. The World's End
7. Pacific Rim
8. Iron Man 3

Though that's just half of the list.

Assuming it's not too late to post:

Inside Llewyn Davis
Nebraska
Before Midnight
Frances Ha
Short Term 12
American Hustle
Philomena
12 Years a Slave
Wadjda
Prisoners

#11 would be Her, #12 Gravity. #16 would be Dallas Buyers Club. Biggest disappointment, World of Wall Street. Several I still (still!) haven't seen.

Year is determined by the date of the world premiere, i.e. IMDb rules.

Summary: Probably the strongest year for the big English language films in a long time, which meant that the Best Picture fields had real quality for a change. A great year for film.

Films Seen: 80

Top Ten:
1) 12 Years a Slave (Steve McQueen - United States/United Kingdom) - ****3/4
2) Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón - United Kingdom/United States) - ****3/4
3) La vie d'Adèle - Chapitres 1 et 2 // Blue Is the Warmest Colour (Abdellatif Kechiche - France) - ****1/2
4) Le passé // The Past (Asghar Farhadi - France) - ****1/2
5) Before Midnight (Richard Linklater - United States) - ****1/2
6) Captain Phillips (Paul Greengrass - United States) - ****1/2
7) Dallas Buyers Club (Jean-Marc Vallée - United States) - ****1/4
8) Under the Skin (Jonathan Glazer - United Kingdom) - ****1/4
9) Dabba // The Lunchbox (Ritesh Batra - India) - ****1/4
10) Papusza (Joanna Kos-Krauze & Krzysztof Krauze - Poland) - ****1/4

On the Cusp:
11) Ain't Them Bodies Saints (David Lowery - United States) - ****1/4
12) Philomena (Stephen Frears - United Kingdom) - ****1/4
13) Kvinden i buret // Keeper of Lost Causes (Mikkel Nørgaard - Denmark) - ****1/4
14) Ida (Pawel Pawilkowski - Poland) - ****1/4
15) L'Inconnu du lac // Stranger by the Lake (Alain Guiraudie - France) - ****1/4

Watchlist:
The Selfish Giant (Clio Barnard - United Kingdom)
La grande bellezza // The Great Beauty (Paolo Sorrentino - Italy)
Upstream Color (Shane Carruth - United States)
Les salauds // Bastards (Claire Denis - France)
Snowpiercer (Joon-ho Bong - South Korea)

Bottom Five: bearing in mind that I'm primarily going to watch stuff that I think I'll enjoy...
1) Computer Chess (Andrew Bujalski - United States) - *1/2
2) Trance (Danny Boyle - United Kingdom) - *3/4
3) Trudno byt bogom // Hard to Be a God (Aleksey German - Russia) - *3/4
4) Pensé que iba a haber fiesta (Victoria Galardi - Argentina) - *3/4
5) Enemy (Denis Villeneuve - Canada) - **

Out of about 46 2013 films:

4. Gravity
5. Inequality for All
6. Young and Beautiful
7. Inside Llewyn Davis

note, Letterboxd is calling Young and Beautiful a 2013 film, so I'll move it here from the 2014 list. easier to keep track of that way.
