The Team

The team have gotten together and teased out their favourite Film and TV titles for 2015. I’ll be following this post with one of my own. Between the two, you should find some good recommendations for viewing.

Scream-QueensTop Movies and TV 2015

Scream Queens

I love comedy and generally adore any genre crossing so Scream Queens with its horror parody premise is right up my alley. I didn’t expect it to be as nuanced as it is though, with characters that are as crazy as the show itself.

 Mockingjay: Part 2

 This was always a given. Fantastic throughout, though I didn’t love the ending.

 Mad Max

This one I wouldn’t have even watched if it weren’t for all the MRAs saying it was awful. If they hated it that much, I thought that there must be something there. And there was. So much was built into what wasn’t said in this movie. I think you could watch it ten times and discover something new with each viewing.

Spy

This is all down to my love of genre crossing. The cast work amazingly together, and the movie is hilarious.

Jupiter Ascending

Pretty sure most people hated this one, but I really liked it. It’s stunningly beautiful and a lot of fun.
