End of the Year Wrap-Up: 2015

With 2015 now over, it’s time for my yearly wrap-up. This year was a bit of a weird one. I lost interest in films a little and didn’t watch much. I actually haven’t watched this few films since before 2010. I was having a pretty bad run of them and then I started a film course which meant I had less time. I also became more interested in reading about films whilst I was compiling lists and information for They Shoot Zombies, Don’t They?. I also rewatched a lot of films as I decided to try and rewatch all my favourite films so I became more interested in revisiting favourites than watching new ones.

As I only liked 2 films released in 2015 (out of 29 watched), I will not be bothering with 2015 stats, but instead just doing first time viewings. As usual, I use IMDb years for consistency.
