I saw so many movies in 2015, and I wish that I had seen a few more! I haven’t seen “Son of Saul” or a lot of the documentaries, but I do plan on watching them and updating this list as time goes on. But for now here are my Top 20 Films of 2015.
19. Bridge of Spies
18. The Look of Silence
16. 99 Homes
Listen to the Original Score Nominees!
Personal favorite has to be between “Carol” and “Sicario.” I loved Ennio Morricone’s score for “The Hateful Eight” as well, but wish that he had recorded more tracks for it. Personally would’ve nominated “It Follows” here.
We’ve picked some strong sample tracks, but go on Youtube if you want to listen to more!
Bridge of Spies – Thomas Newman
Mad Max: Fury Road
Son of Saul
Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens
SN: “It Follows” has an incredible soundtrack
“It Follows” stands out in the horror genre for many different reasons, but the editing and score help bring the whole atmosphere together. Director David Robert Mitchell approached Disasterpeace (Richard Vreeland) after becoming a fan of Vreeland’s work in the video game “Fez.”
When various critic awards were announced last year, a lot of groups proclaimed that Mica Levi’s score in “Under the Skin” was the best of 2014. It went on to receive no commercial award attention at the Oscars, the Critic’s Choice Awards, or the Golden Globes.
“Under the Skin” was a small film only discovered by film lovers, “It Follows” has a slightly stronger following (no pun intended), and I’m sure it will also win some “Best” titles at the year’s end. However the big name awards will likely forget about it, but here it is for fans of the movie, and non-fans. Enjoy!
