2015 was an amazing year for film and felt really consistent all the way throughout, perhaps more so than most years of recent. The spring saw some really solid films such as Ex Machina and the summer kicked off really well with the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road and Inside Out. And of course, the fall saw some of the best films of the year, as it usually does. Not to mention, 2015 featured another Star Wars film. And an incredible one at that. The Rocky franchise is back on the map and Jurassic World took us to a place a lot of us love as well. Whether it be big budget or small art house, 2015 had a lot to offer.
