Phil’s 5 Best Films of 2015 (Updated)
So 2015 is almost over and it’s that time a year again where everyone reflects back on their best and worst films of the year. So here it is: my pick of the BEST films of 2015.
Film of The Year: Whiplash
In Brief: Lets be honest this was my No1 film of the year from the moment I watched it. Excellent performances , superbly made and expertly edited – this was one of those once in a decade type films. A must watch and 100% my tempo.
2. Inside Out
In Brief: Pixar delivers big after a few years of “meh” movies. It made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me remember why I fell in love with films again.
3. Shaun The Sheep
In Brief:I have a real soft spot for Shaun The Sheep – a funny, charming animated feature where barely a word is spoken.
In Brief: For most of the year this ran a very close second to Whiplash and even now it ‘s still one of the bets film of the year. Innovate, different yet totally captivating.
5.Star Wars The Force Awakens
In Brief: It’s Star Wars and after the horrid memory of the prequels still leaving a bitter taste so much could have gone wrong. It didn’t. It delivers. It sets a high bar.
6. The Martian, 7. Sicario, 8. Kingsmen: The Secret Service , 9. Pitch Perfect 2 , 10. Unfriended , The Infinite Man, John Wick , Focus, The Theory Of Everything, Going Clear , Cinderella , Man Up, Son Of A Gun
