Ranking Every 2015 Picture That I've Seen


I saw 101 movies released in 2015, which for a small independent film reviewer without any press screening credentials is pretty good. It definitely was enough movies for me to declare last year to be a pretty great and diverse year at the cinemas. Every year there are always great independent and foreign pictures, but 2015 was a year where the quality and creativity even shined in many big studio pictures.

This weekend will be the kick off of my reviews for 2016 pictures. To signal a new year of movies and a year of weekly reviews of theatrical releases, I am listing every 2015 movie that I saw along with their star rating. I've also attempted to rank them from best to worst, but as I confessed in the Stinkers of the 2015 and Best of 2015 Breakdowns that lists have a tendency to shuffle and shift on a daily basis.
