Didn't know if I should include Hard To Be a God because it was released in 2013 but not here until 2015. Always a trick for lists. I'm leaning towards considering all films released in US in 2015 and disregarding the rest of the world entirely like I normally do :)

Exactly. Duane has done this on his lists & it made sense to me. Thanks for the
note on HARD TO BE A GOD, i will amend my list accordingly.

He always kills it. Only I think he saw far fewer films this year? Any truth to that, Don?

I do love Neil's lists. And thanks for the kindness, all.

I saw fewer films this year than in recent years - new job has kept me exceedingly busy, so I've had to be choosier (stuff like MALL COP 2 I had to do for work, and I was convinced FANTASTIC 4 couldn't be as bad as they said - and lo, it was). Last year I saw 111. I think I saw over 150 films in 2013.

ALWAYS a pleasure to have you post, Donnacha.
Best wishes for life, work & associated frenzy.
I'm sure I speak for all of us.
