Worst To Best: A Ranking Of Every Movie Released In December 2013

By taking the scores from Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and IMDb*, you can objectively rank every film ever, using maths instead of your own unreliable "opinions." Here are ALL THE FILMS released in December, 2013, ranked from Worst To Best. Could this be a good indicator for the upcoming awards season? Let's just go with 'Yes'. *IMDb uses a 1-10 scale, so all scores were multiplied by 10 to keep it's weight to scale. For example, if a film has an IMDb score of 7.2 that equals 72. Cool, glad we're all on the same page with this footnote.
