Are these translations above correct?

Many thanks.
Yes and no. They are all around the meaning of the English expression. 5 to 8 are more intense. 2 to 4 are more emotional.

I would say 1 is the best "translation" although the most different. Just because both languages express the same state of mind in different ways.

PS: You forgot 9. Me muero por ver la película -then "5 to 9"-(Spanish speakers created it way before the age of Twitter -where so many English speakers are prone to "die dead" nowadays-)
