Jamie takes a look at the controversial film, mother! in his TIMELY review. Major spoilers from 2:07-7:35! I URGE you to watch the film before spoiling it for yourself. Seriously, go in knowing as little as possible.
Thanks to Collider for a great SPOILER-LADEN piece on the themes of the movie.
If you were ask me tomorrow at 5:00pm what was my favorite movie of 2015, I’d tell you a different answer rather than if you had waited until after supper. 2015 was that close for me, and ended up being one fantastic year for cinema, yet only was half expected. For my friend Brandon and I, the build up to the year was epic. Then as the year progressed, we kind of felt let down. Some of the big films didn’t hit that well, but as the dust settled… 2015 was a really fantastic year.
And honestly, I could have put almost every one of these films in the top three. These were the fifteen films that I truly loved.
I’d decided to wait until I was able to catch a few extra films that were released in 2015 and so only now, was I able to compile my Top 15 Films of 2015. Yes Top Fifteen. My initial list was 13, and as I struggled to pare it down, the aforementioned friend, Brandon, told me he was to make a Top 15…
…so screw it, it’ll make it easier, right?
Now I must stress, as I had mentioned before in my Top 20 Films of the #DLMChallenge that the two lists are dissimilar. This list is a collection of both the caliber of the films and how they impacted me.
Parring down this massive list of 368 movies into my favorite list of just ten is a scary thought. So I determined that I would have to do at least a Top 20.
Naturally, I’ve removed the ability for the #ReWatch365 movies to make this list. This is truly my favorite of the new movies I’ve seen this year.
I will make a separate Top 10 for the movies released in 2015, and those will be based on the quality and my personal tastes (coming soon).
In an attempt to differentiate from the 2015 Best Of list, this list will feature the movies that really spoke to me, ones that gave me a feeling that permeated quality, and filled me with personal substance. Yeah, intense.
But first, here are some Honorable Mentions from the #DLMChallenge 2015 (The ones in boldnearly made the list):Read More »
