Cinefile 2013

We kicked off our look back at the year in film with The 2013 Movie Trailer Mash-Up earlier this week, and now we have a second retrospective video paying tribute to the big screen releases this year. This one seems to have a lot more movies included, but that might just be hasty speculation. Cinefile 2013 from Miguel Branco isn't quite as grandiose as our first retrospective, but it's still a great, comprehensive look back at film. We wish the sound editing was a little more finely tuned and dialogue interconnected, but films like Dallas Buyers Club, Prince Avalanche, Pacific Rim and more still get their due diligence. Watch!

Here's Miguel Branco's Cinefile 2013, sent to us by the video's creator himself via YouTube:

We do have to nitpick a little bit since there's some of The Monuments Men still in the video, but this was likely in the works long before that film was pushed back to February of 2014, so we're not too disappointed. After all, as Branco notes on the YouTube page, this video features "400 movies, eight months of production and thousands of re-edits, Cinefile 2013 is the largest and most diverse year-end cinematic retrospective on YouTube to date!" That might be a bit hyperbolic, but a hell of a lot of work went into this piece, so that's fine. For a full list of music from artists like M83 and Arctic Monkeys and every film clip, head over here.

Total nitpick, but if you're going to do "in loving memory" at the end, how can you forget Ed Lauter?

Really good video, though I don't see why this video is subject to so much nitpicking. Lots of retrospectives featured on this site have had problems, not going to list names, but only this one gets criticized. Not sure why.

Was Gravity in there?

Wow! That's a LOT of footage to go through. This is very well done.

It was a pretty bad year. Except for Gravity.

You didn't watch the right films, then.
