Well, it’s a new year.  It’s hard to imagine that it was 12 months ago that a new Mad Max movie was 5 months away, a new Rocky movie was 11 months away and a new Star Wars and Quentin Tarantino western were damn near a year away.  And with the year of 2015 over, Marvel took some (minor) lumps in the critical department with their two releases of Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.  Jurassic World claimed the top spot at the box office, keeping it warm until Star Wars destroyed every record known to man.  Hunger Games limped out of the public consciousness, overstaying it’s welcome with it’s second part of a finale.  The awards season is totally up in the air, so much so that there’s some kind of hope that Mad Max and Sylvester Stallone could legitimately get Oscars.  Also that the 4th Mad Max movie, released 30 years after the 3rd entry and with a new actor was the best movie of the year stunned everyone.  But as I am not, as of now, a professionally paid critic, I can’t see every movie released in the year in a timely manner.  I also like to watch a good deal of older movies.  So while I beef up the list of 2015 releases I saw, I felt like I should drop the list in ranked order of movies released before 2015 I saw this year.  There’s so much that I’m not gonna write about them all.  This is really just a quick little thing for my own pleasure.  Expect the full 2015 best of by the time the Oscars roll around.  For now, take a look at the stuff.
