What are your bottom five from this list?

(A question inspired by the recent talk of Scarface.)

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I like that we have zero overlap so far. If we keep this up we can cover the whole list!

5. WALLE
4. The Dark Knight Rises
3. Inception
2. American History X
1. Schindler's List

Movies that don't belong anywhere in the list (or at least should be lower on the list):
- The Dark Knight
- Fight Club
- Whiplash
- The Matrix
- Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
- Interstellar
- Django Unchained
- Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
- Toy Story 3
- Max Mad: Fury Road
- Snatch
- Batman Begins
- Scarface (yes, Scarface)
- The Wolf of Wall Street
- V For Vendetta
- How to Train Your Dragon
- The Sixth Sense (Shyamalan plot-twist does not make a great movie)
- The Avengers, especially The Avengers
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Any Harry Potter movie, period
- Any Pirates of the Caribbean movie

Why the heck is A Clockwork Orange so low? It should be higher. And seriously, Taxi Driver at #83? What the hell.
