17 hours ago

Early yesterday, one of the formerly unseen awards contenders finally revealed itself with a Trailer. The film in question is Concussion, the Will Smith vehicle that tackles the issue of head trauma within the National Football League.

With this changing of the calendar, I wanted to again give you a bit of a look inside my mind. In short, this will be a quick little look at what I’ve enjoyed most over the first eight months of the year, as opposed to some of my slightly longer outings of this ilk. 2015 has been an interesting cinematic year for sure, so there’s no shortage of films worth praising.
