Yes, because I expected it to be #1 or #2, not somehow below an Evil Dead remake. To me, there is a clear drop off in quality after my #4 ranked film. Overall, I really liked The World's End, but I didn't love it like I did Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead.

I liked the movie too, but also not as much as those 2.
I'd also rank Star Trek, Pacific Rim, Now You See Me (pretty good movie imo) higher than The Wolverine.

1. Gravity
2. Hustle
3. Wolf
4. Her
5. Muscle Schoals (which is a doc, so maybe should be somewhere else)
6. Llewyn Davis
7. Side Effects
8. Prisoners.


Just off the top of my head. Dallas Buyers Club had some great elements, but overall didn't work for me. I really want to see Mudd.

I hated both of those as you could see in my worst movies list.

With Pacific Rim, I got exactly what I expected, giant robots vs. giant monsters and bunch of cheesy lines.
Now You See Me pleasantly surprised me, but ending was a bit over the top tho...

Watched Gravity yesterday, 7/10.
Would probably be higher if I watched it in 3d instead of my PC...

Other movies I watched recently
V for Vendetta - 9/10
About Time 7.5/10
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 8/10
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 8/10
In Bruges 8.5/10
Red 7/10
Red 2 6.5/10
The Expendables 2 6.5/10
The Intouchables 9/10
Prisoners 8/10 - Jake Gyllenhaal was great.
Fight Club 10/10 - Watched it as a kid, didn't understand most of the stuff, rewatched it now and it's a ****ing brilliant movie...

I'd just like to say the two most overrated and overpraised films by the internet are In Bruges and Eternal Sunshine. I'm not say they're bad or even close to not being great, but their hype is embarrassing sometimes. Sorry for that. I just saw the former and I got a bit riled up.

Hmmm...good scores based on what I've seen. I think I agree with most of your scores, within about a one point or so approximation.

I'd rate Gravity higher.
