What I've Watched In 2015

As I have continued to do since 2012, I documented all I've watched (projected/digital movies, documentaries and completed episodic series) in 2015. During the turn of 2016, I continued to reflect on what I watched that past year during my insomniacal hours and creativity-blocked times to carry on my tradition of declaring my "top" favorites.

Happy new year to all... and remember, these are not strictly "made in 2015" titles: Rather, it's everything I've visually (and mentally) absorbed DURING 2015 which I have never seen (or seen completed) in my lifetime.

The following are my "Top 15" in relative order:

Sense8 (Netflix series)
Still Alice
Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens
These Final Hours
Gone Girl
Jupiter Ascending
Infini
Predestination
Nurse Jackie (US series)
The Returned (2013 movie)
Wild
The Way
Residue (UK miniseries)
The Gift
Suicide Theory

Honorable mentions worth... mentioning:
Under The Skin, Silver Linings Playbook, American Sniper, The Theory of Everything, Boyhood, The Nines, Dark Angel (US series), Noah
