The Best Films of 2015! Results Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.  Long answer is: I had this backed up on a computer I couldn't get at for a while and wasn't able to really use.  Got back on it recently and figured I might as well finish it off, rather then let it die completely.  So, again, my apologies.  And if anything is wrong...tough, I'm not doing it again!
 

We ended up with 12 ballots, no film was on all 12 ballots, while one got on 11 of them (Way to go, SKOS!).  I heavily weighted the Top 10, middle-weighted the middle 11-19, and everything 20 and below got 1 point each.

Also, rather than get frustrated and quit again, I'm going to just dump 33-11 here and do nicer roll-outs for the Top 10.

I had a devil of a time finding you, as when you voted your user name showed up as Bald Henry, and when I punched the name into the DVDVR search engine, it turned up no one so I thought you'd been banned.  Then I checked my messages and you were still in there.

Least surprising #1 ever, but I was stunned at just how high 'Inside Out' ended up.

I'm amused that I had the high vote for all of the top 3.

I guess I was the hive mind for this small group of voters.

I didn't watch a lot last year, which probably means that my ballot didn't look as varied as it should have. If I had seen a few more films, my entire back 5 at least would probably have fallen off from voting.

18 Mr. Holmes
17 Star Wars: The Force Awakens
16 Creed
15 Mississippi Grind
14 Slow West
13 Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

I was expecting Star Wars to give Mad Max a run for the top spot.

BTW, movies I've seen since I submitted my ballot that would have made my list had I seen them in time
-Manglehorn (Somewhere near the bottom)
-American Ultra (Also near the bottom)
-The Hateful Eight (Probably Top 20)
-What We Did On Our Holiday (Possibly Top 5)
