60 Best Movie Characters of 2013


It seems like I don't know when to stop. But the year 2013 in movies has been too awesome that I still have a lot of enthusiasm left from the not-so-recently wrapped up season.

Plus, it's not just an incredible year for films, it's also an incredible year for characters. From pirates, to lesbians, to angry housewives, and basically just normal people. All of them are great that it's impossible to narrow them down to 10, or even 25. I tried so hard to ignore some of them but I appreciated them too much. Even Sam from The Bling Ring played by Taissa Farmiga I had a hard time cutting in this list. But I did anyway so I guess she's no. 61.
