The finish line is in sight! Would you look at that Filmspots winner.

Let me know if I need to add any films. Also remember to wait to vote until I add all of the 5 films you want to vote for. Otherwise pix has to reset it to let you revote.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Boyhood
Relatos salvajes / Wild Tales
Timbuktu
Interstellar


Wild Tales and Timbuktu are currently not listed. Gett might be worth adding too (I'm not 100% sure it shouldn't be ahead of Interstellar in my rankings).

By the way, I am a big fan of the "Lego Move" myself, but I think "Lego Movie" is what you meant to write there.
