As you all probably already know, I’ve seen a lot of movies this year. Most of them I have reviewed on this site (reviews) but I saw movies before I started reviewing them (list of 2015 theater movies). I usually post a monthly list of the movies I’ve seen this year along with others I’ve covered on this site (last one) but the new wordpress.com text editor has removed the capability to link to past posts so until that capability returns, I will not be posting that list.
I just thought that instead of the monthly list, I would have some fun by spoiling some of the movies I’ve seen this year starting with the beginning. From the beginning, I mean January so if you haven’t seen some of these films by now, then it’s your own fault.
So continue at your own risk …
