@derek Baby Driver below The World's End is so disrespectful

old laserdiscourse; Edgar Wright Power Rankings 

@derek I can justify the top 2, but that's just one step too far

@Thomas I'll make my case: I like Baby Driver! I think it's cool! But my one thing that Edgar Wright loves to do that kind of bugs me it he loves to sync music cues to action, and I always think it's too cute, and Baby Driver is a whole movie of that. And the fact I like it as much as I do despite that is a big feather in Eddie's cap.

World's End, for my money, has the single best performance of Simon Pegg's career, with or without Eddie.

@derek I'll agree on Pegg's performance but I guess I really *liked* the tied music cues in Baby Driver because of Baby's tinnitus. It felt like his experience and how he had to function

@Thomas @derek I really liked the music cues too. Honestly the thing that pushes it down if I had to rank these is that there isn't much interesting going on outside of the way the music interacts with the action. If that doesn't tickle your fancy as much I think the movie suffers quite a lot

@derek Baby Driver and around 30 minutes of SPVSTW are of the only parts of his filmography I've watched, cause broke, so Baby Driver is my favorite.

@mattheus I don't think EW has made a bad movie, straight up

old laserdiscourse; Edgar Wright Power Rankings 

@derek I've literally only completed 1 of his movies, so I agree

old laserdiscourse; Edgar Wright Power Rankings 

@derek Hot Fuzz is one of the greatest comedy movies ever made and I respect you putting at 1

@radicalrobit It *rules*, it's not even close for me
