Editor's Note: The modern concept of a film director is being the one person who guides a film with his or her vision, yet the current film landscape is filled with sibling directing pairs who we think of as a singular auteur: Lana and Andy Wachowski, Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, Joe and Anthony Russo, Bobby and Peter Farrelly, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, David and Jerry Zucker, Mark and Jay Duplass, Paul and Chris Weitz, Albert and Allen Hughes and, of course, Joel and Ethan Coen. So what is it about the sibling bond that has resulted in so many successful directing teams? We asked the The Goetz Brothers — award-winning directors of hundreds of commercials, two feature films ("Scenic Route" and "Martyrs") and who are managed by the sharp talent eyes at Anonymous Content — to tell us about their working relationship and how it started.

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. "Winners" will be announced in intentionally tacky ceremony scheduled for 8pm/Pst on Saturday February 27 -- Oscar eve.
The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie, »
It’s that time of year. Sleigh bells have been rung, gifts have been given and we have officially closed the door on what was 2015. A year that saw us once again take a journey into a galaxy far, far away, revisit the post apocalyptic landscape of Mad Max and the ever expanding reach of world and documentary cinema, 2015 has been one of the greatest of film years, arguably the very best since 2007 (probably cinema’s greatest year?) and as one has likely already one hundred top [insert arbitrary number] films list, why not make it one hundred and one? Be it a group of young women attempting to break free of the backwards patriarchy that has them oppressed or a bravura, epic-length satire from one of world cinema’s foremost artists, these are the ten best films that 2015 had to offer.
