Best of 2015 - From my perspective

                        


This year I've been very sloppy with my blog. Between work and social life it's difficult to find time... But I will admit I could have done a bit more effort.

In any case, I still watched movies... A lot of them! 
2015 brought us a lot of quality and variety. It was very easy for me to make this list, even without watching many likely candidates like Carol, The Room, The Revenant and Creed just to name a few.

So without further a do, here's my top 10 movies of 2015:

Mad Max
Youth
The Gift
The Lobster
Ex Machina
Straight Outta Compton
The Martian
Me, Earl and The Dying Girl 
Amy (documentary)
Dope

Special mentions to the wonderful surprise that was Danny Collins, plus the triumphant return of Star Wars.

Here's to another great year ahead of us... Not only with great films but everything culture wise.

James Vincent McMorrow - Cavalier


A friend of mine said James Vincent McMorrow has the voice of an angel.

Couldn't agree more.

Dope (2015)



My latest streak of film viewing has made me come back to write for the blog. I don't promise to be consistent, but to at least drop a few suggestions here and there.

I start with the following:

DOPE​.

Directed and written by Rick Famuyiwa, produced by Pharrell Williams, Sean 'Diddy' Combs & Forest Whitaker and starring wonderful young ensemble featuring  Shameik Moore (!!!), Tony Revolori, Kiersey Clemons, Zoe Kravitz, A$AP Rocky, among many others.

And don't get me started on the soundtrack... Kicks off with Naughty by Nature... is heavy on A Tribe Called Quest...  and gets it going with Public Enemy, NAS and Gil Scott-Heron.

Definitely going into my Top10 of 2015.
