It's a bad episode movie, but it does give you lots of good Sherlock/Watson interaction. And the follow-up is much worse.

FYP.

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

This is a hard year to rank - for good reasons.

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Interstellar
The Lego Movie

Inherent Vice
Whiplash


Stellar Top 5.

HM: Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Nightcrawler, Gone Girl, Rise of the Planet of the Apes


I should have said...an inter-stellar top 5. Oh, but for wasted opportunities.

(This really was a great year though.)
