Part three of my Most Anticipated Films of 2015: the award season releases.


Must Sees: none

On the Fence: none


Must Sees: none

On the Fence: The Walk – Dramatic retelling of Academy Award best documentary winner Man on Wire. That film was great and I hope this one is too! Crimson Peak – Guillermo del Toro as director is reason enough to be on this list. Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller – It won’t take much to bump this movie up to a must see (Spielberg is directing), but a title would be nice!


Must Sees: Silence – Scorcese, a film he’s been trying to make for a long time

On the Fence: SPECTRE – Mendes doing another Bond movie, but more exciting for me is that Daniel Craig as Bond. He’s the best! Untitled Christmas Eve Project – What’s with all these untitled projects? This one has an awesome young director and great cast, so I’m excited for it! The Martian – Ridley Scott has been disappointing a lot lately, but the cast is really good here! Hopefully the script is too! Midnight Special – Another good young director with another strong cast.


Must Sees: Joy – David O Russell with his regulars. I loved Silver Linings Playbook and  I am interested in what this team comes up with this time. The Revenant – After Birdman, not to mention all the director’s previous films, how can this not be a must see? Hateful Eight – Tarantino is such a great filmmaker, his films are definitely must sees, even if he’s been playing it safe recently.

On the Fence: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens – For shame! How is this not a must see! Honestly, it probably should be, but I’m just not a huge fan of JJ Abrams. Sisters – A great comedic cast here, headlined by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!


Must Sees: Hail Caesar – The Coen brothers will forever be on the must see list for me. The Light Between Oceans – Derek Cianfrance and Michael Fassbender. One of the most interesting writer/directors and one of my favorite actors! Winter Sleep – It’s from Ceylan and it won the Palme d’Or, so it’s definitely a must see, although probably on video, since it is 3+ hours long and Ceylan’s films are so dry! But I liked his last one (almost 3 hours) so hopefully I’ll like this one too!

On the Fence: Knight of Cups – Malick films are so secretive, so who knows if it’s a must see or not? Untitled Woody Allen Project – One per year, like always. Although normally his films have a title by now. 99 Homes – I like this filmmaker, the cast is strong, and I hear the film is good! The Cobbler – I like the director, but starring Adam Sandler? Hopefully it’s more Punch Drunk Love and less Sandler’s usual fare. Manglehorn – David Gordon Green and Al Pacino, should be interesting.
