  19. Hey guys, that Sony hack was a pretty dark day for the industry, and I think it's irresponsible to bring to light anything damaging to those affected. Also, most of those items that were deleted already existed (as they were not actually from any hack of any kind, but were already part of the community.

  20. Sounds like "Ascending" is the wrong adjective.

  21. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate this forum. And yes - I have been drinking :)

      McGeek and TB Red are both dead on: most of the films that stood out to me were the smaller indie/foreign films and smaller horror/thrillers, etc. Like my 2014 list, not even one big studio awards bait film made my list....and when i go back to revise it, studio films probably won't even crack my list. It definitely has inspired me with my writing too...but yes, studio bait films were dull as fuck this year...but the smaller budgeted/indie/mid budgeted/foreign films were outstanding
