Look Back at 2015 Movies

Emily Blunt and Daniel Kaluuya in “Sicario”

Before it gets too late in the year, here’s a quick roundup of all the films that I saw last year (or that were released last year; I snuck in a few viewings after Dec 31). First, my five favorite.

  1. Spotlight
  2. Mad Max: Fury Road
  3. Sicario
  4. Creed
  5. The Hateful Eight

You could easily re-sort the top three any way you like and I wouldn’t disagree as I found it really difficult to choose the right ordering for them—even after watching each of them a second time.

Here are the movies I saw that I thought were worthwhile, and deserve attention from anyone who hasn’t seen them yet.

And here’s the rest…

By the way, one of my new year’s resolutions is to track the movies I watch over at Letterboxd. If you’re at all interested, you can follow along there with my movie diary.
