We looked at so much shit via the movies in 2013. So much excellent shit: a slow crawl on Quaaludes; a late-night subway platform piss; the most brutally real couple's argument in recent history; and, of course, shorts of every color.

Last year will go down as one of the greatest in the last couple decades, ranking up there with 2007. (That was the year of There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, I'm Not There, and so many more it makes your head hurt.)

The hardest part about the new year isn't the broken resolutions, or the realization that your life won't change much—it's the terrible first quarter movie releases, when the studios back ass first into theaters and dump on all of us the crap they knew they couldn't push during awards season. It's bad. Real bad.

But there's hope beyond the wretched months of January and February! Check out our most anticipated movies of 2014 and start your cinema advent calendars.
