aNewDomain — Backloaded to a fault, 2015 was another disappointing year for Hollywood. It seems stuck in a redundant approach to filmmaking less concerned with telling stories than it is with just regurgitating up things from the past. No wonder films with stories relevant to our world right now were so few and far between.
Even an ostensibly culturally significant film like “Spotlight” comes across as a formula knock-off of “All the President’s Men” from 1976. Never mind that the movie, about a corrupt Boston judicial system and media outlets that protected dozens of pedophile priests, was made 10 years too late.
But the top movies of 2015, though few, hit a lot of great high points. Check them out below in this fast, short, end-of-the-year video roundup.
