The consensus for my films this year seems to be all over the place.

Come to think about it, I've just noticed that both of the #1's given so far are not only your films, but films that have otherwise received a mixed reception from everyone else....

Good God. It's Cloud Atlas all over again!

I think I'll just sit back and wait for To The Moon sequel. I'm beyond lazy when it comes to writing original stufc. I get the basic story and that's it for me.

Fair warning: my list is going to be really, really wierd.

 

Since this was kind of a weird year it makes sense.

 

I think we'll get the full hang of the Quarter System for Year 9

Well, let it not be said that this year's rankings are... typical.

 

Seriously though, after Spaghetti's list, I don't think a single one of the #1 ranked films have made it into the top 10 total....

*whistle* Bronx is Burning really leaped ahead there. 

 

Suppose that makes it all the more surprising that it and Mushishi both only have one appearance in a top 5 each.
