Today's Box Office: Top 11 of 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles picks his top 11 movies of 2013.

August: Osage County - Meryl Streep is amazing as the pill-popping, truth-telling matriarch of the very dysfunctional Weston family. I connected with Osage County on a personal level because there's a certain degree of dysfunction in my family that this film or the play by Tracy Letts could have been based upon.

Gravity - This is the groundbreaker of 2013. I have never been on the edge of my seat like this in a movie theater. Director Alfonso Cuaron not only delivered a tight, tense film but he was also innovative in the way he brought it to the screen. Cuaron spent years working visual effect artists trying to perfect the look of this film and waiting for the technology to come along so this film would be possible. Sadly, if you did not see this in the theater, you missed half of the experience of this film.
