JD's Film Awards 2015

It’s that time of the year where I hand out my 2015 film awards. I saw some of them on DVD/Blu-ray and some at the cinema, but to qualify, all the films must have been released in UK cinemas in 2015.
There were a few films I missed out on and didn’t get around to seeing. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Macbeth are up there and I heard great things about the likes of The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Song of the Sea, Brooklyn and The Falling. I will strive to see all these eventually, but I had to draw my line in the sand somewhere.
