Every 2015 Film I’ve Seen, Ranked

From January 1 through December 31, I have seen 143 of 2015’s theatrically-released movies. I saw 102 of those in theaters. Some of them twice. The rest, a combination of online screeners and DVDs. I would call the first twenty-some on the list “great.” The next fifty are good. The twenty after that I would call “watchable.” And the last fifty, unfortunately, sort of stunk. If you disagree tremendously with my rankings, let me know! I’m always up for a good cinematic debate. Otherwise, without further ado…
