News broke this week that indie darling and 'Frances Ha' star Greta Gerwig is headed to CBS to write, produce and star in the new sorta-spinoff of 'How I Met Your Mother,' titled 'How I Met Your Dad.' Cue surprising controversy as fans lashed out at the precious star: is she selling her soul to the home of lesser cable programming, or is this an opportunity for Gerwig to line her pockets and make more of the films she wants to make? Should we feel angry and betrayed, or thrilled and supportive? Why can't we have mixed feelings about it? In the realm of the internet, our reactions can only ever be extreme.

Given the state of 'How I Met Your Mother''s ninth and final season, news that a potential spinoff, fittingly titled 'How I Met Your Dad,' drew mixed reactions across the board.

It's that time of the year: time for top 10 lists, time to start gearing up for awards season, and picking the contenders and ensuring we shout their names in all caps from behind our laptops, and a time for critics to champion our favorite movies and performances -- which is why I think it's time to take a look back at my favorite female-centric (and gender politic-centric) films and female performances of 2013.

‘Frances Ha’ Review

Frances Ha Review
IFC Films

'Frances Ha' is the movie I imagine Woody Allen would make today if Woody Allen wasn't 77 years old and ensconced in an impermeable bubble of wealth and fame. Unlike Woody's recent films -- some of which are actually pretty entertaining -- Noah Baumbach still feels in touch with, as David Bowie puts it in a song that makes an effective appearance in the film, modern love. His characters live on the Lower rather than the Upper East Side. They watch television instead of Ingmar Bergman movies. They struggle to make ends meet as artists but poo-poo potential jobs at 'Saturday Night Live' because "it's gone so downhill."

‘Lola Versus’ Review

Lola Versus
Fox Searchlight

It's amazing how just a few weeks of 'Girls' can make a brand new feature film seem dated.

'Lola Versus' is a slightly-better-than-some but still phoney and trite romantic comedy set in an alternate reality New York City that is so well represented in bad low budget comedies future historians might actually believe it is real. To those in the sticks: we don't ALL spend our days moping on the High Line, picnicking in Brooklyn Bridge Park or jabbering about relationships in cafes and gyms. I don't want to alarm you, but it's true.

Greta Gerwig Interview: Dating in NYC, Woody Allen and ‘Lola Versus’

Greta Gerwig
Fox Searchlight

It's hard not to root for Greta Gerwig. Her natural charm elevated the so-so “mumblecore” movies of the mid-aughts and she's been turning in solid performances in both independent and studio pictures ever since.

Her newest one, 'Lola Versus,' is another chapter in the “dating-in-New-York-is-Hell” book, and offers a fine vehicle for her to be front and center. In it, Gerwig gets dumped by her fiancee just days before the wedding (fool!) and he friends, which actually include her ex, try and help her get back on her feet. I had an opportunity to speak with her in a very pink room in a SoHo hotel...
