Top Ten Films: 2015


Here it is, my annual top ten films of the year!

2015 was the year of the blockbuster, with tons of franchise fare hits (The Avengers, Jurassic World, Star Wars VII, Furious 7, Minions, The Hunger Games, etc). With it, the year had a correspondingly lack of original/indie/art films, but I still saw a lot that I liked and have made what I think is a pretty solid top ten. And there’s even a franchise blockbuster in here, read below to check out which one it is!

Final note: I still have not seen Carol, Brooklyn, Creed, Bridge of Spies, Son of Saul, and probably some others that might make it onto this list once I do see them.

Without further ado, my top ten films of 2015:

Favorite Movies: 2012


As 2012 comes to a close, here comes my annual top ten favorite movies of the year.  There are a couple films I missed this year, including: Amour, Ted, This is 40, Lawless, Hitchcock, The Hobbit and probably some others. Any of these films may make it onto my top ten for 2012 when I see them on DVD, but for now, we can make the list without them.

Like all years, I list a quote, you guess the movie. No googling or imdbing; that’s cheating. Lastly, I’m listing twelve films this year instead of the usual ten. This is because two films were technically released at film festivals in 2011, but did not have their theatrical release until 2012. Extra points if you can identify them.

Without further ado, my top twelve of 2012:
