- 2."Lost" (2004-2010)
- 3."Black Mirror" (2011-)
Rankings of all the films I saw released in 2015.
- 1."Mad Max: Fury Road" - ★★★★★The cinematic manifestation of the phrase "order in chaos," George Miller's new "Mad Max" movie is the most insane, imaginative and expertly executed action showcase the cinema has seen in years, perhaps ever. There's a unique purity of vision to "Fury Road", a true monument to the power of world-building right up there with the likes of "The Lord of the Rings" & "Star Wars". Never before has a franchise returned after so long a hiatus in such magnificent form.
- 2."The Hateful Eight" - ★★★★★Tarantino is back with "The Hateful Eight" in a way we haven't seen him since "Kill Bill". Eschewing the dramatic weight that specifically characterized "Basterds" and "Django" frees Tarantino up to do what he's best at; Zany, colorful, fun. It is here Tarantino indulges all of his best, most trustworthy tendencies and produces something passionate and vital. A delicious feast of filmic riches. A testament to the power of a simple story with one of cinema's most powerful craftsmen at it's helm.
- 3."The Revenant" - ★★★★★Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárittu's savage and hauntingly beautiful survival tale is the year's most visually spectacular cinematic experience. An icy plunge into the depths of the freezing north and the cold hearts of the various people who roamed it in the early 1800's. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki uses digital technology to further push the boundaries of visual storytelling, delivering the greatest work of his considerable career. A brutal, powerful force of nature.
