20 Favorite Films of 2015


2015 was an extremely strong year for film, in my opinion. There was a great balance of some really great studio films and some hard-hitting indies. While I do agree that Hollywood’s reliance on sequels, tent poles, and reboots is annoying, I can’t be too annoyed because I have the choice to not see them. Will my lack of contributing…

I’d rather let the work speak for itself. If you enjoy the Star Wars franchise in any way, then do yourself a favor, and press play. I promise…
