2015: The Year in Film

Here are my 25 favorite films of the year.



Man vs. machine sci fi is both derivative and ridiculous.



America's new favorite action hero is 61 years old.


Review: 12 Years a Slave

The best film about the tragedy of American slavery I’ve ever seen.


Review: Frances Ha

Frances Ha is basically all about the adorableness of Gerwig. Seriously.


Review: Django Unchained

He’s 49 years old, but in some ways, Quentin Tarantino is still that genius kid in the video store.
