Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With in 2015

I really do try to catch up with films that I have not seen before each year (and yes I still have a massive number of DVDs that have been sitting on my shelf for films I still haven’t watched yet) as I find this often to be such a good break from the films that are released at the cinema, as let’s face it certain times of year we seem to be getting the same thing over and over again and we all know March/April are awful months at the cinema. That was also why I set up the Best Picture Project in order to increase the quality of some of the films I watch. I think some of that will be clear in these 10 films I have picked that I am now pleased I have caught up with!

I always find the best thing about doing this top 10 list is that people are always shocked that I had never seen certain films up until this (or now last year).

I haven’t included any of the Bond films in the list but thought it was very appropriate to make sure that I mentioned that 2015 was the year that I officially caught up and have now seen every single Bond film! Something which was very trying and testing but I managed to complete the challenge of my Bondathon!

Top 10 – Worst Films of 2014

Putting together a list of worst films of a year is often the easiest and most fun to do. I am not even going to lie, it is the easiest list to sort out. The really bad films still leave a bad taste in your mouth months later just seeing the title. I actually managed to avoid a lot of films I have seen on other people’s lists those being Sex Tape and Tammy, I honestly just thought they looked tragic and managed to avoid them. Unfortunately I still managed to catch plenty of films worthy of this list, I wouldn’t really say 2014 was a fantastic year for film overall.

Not only have I caught films this year at the cinema towards the end of the year I managed to catch ones I had missed either on one of my many flights for work in Africa this year and also on Sky Movies and Netflix as they became available. So this gives quite a lot of films for consideration. – Look here for 2014 tagged posts and here for films I watched at the cinema in 2014.
