78. Thor: The Dark World (A-)

Discussed more in the review thread, but this is in most respects a superior sequel.

79. 12 Years A Slave (A+)

The other of this year's Best Picture heavyweights, and it's a worthy film, though I think I prefer Gravity of the two. The list of major American films about slavery isn't terribly long, and this is almost the only one I can think of that's actually about life on the plantation, rather than the aftermath. The cast is terrific, although I think Brad Pitt is kind of distracting in his small but crucial part toward the end.
