Films watched in 2015: Part 3

September, October, November and December.

A collage of some of the films watched in 2015

A period defined by lots of school work, lots of job hours, exams, traveling to Prague and of course Christmas. Compared to the two previous periods this is the one where I’ve checked the least films, but still managed to get up to the count of 35. Not too bad! In early autumn my boyfriend and I started our “B-movie”-period, which I’ve blogged about previously. Later in the year I also saw more Chaplin films for the first time, having only seen “The Kid” before. My boyfriend came home one day with the complete box-set of Charlie Chaplin films, so even though we watched quite a few already there will be plenty more to explore!

At the movies I saw the Norwegian film “The Wave”, “The Martian” and of course, this year’s most anticipated film: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. “The Martian” was quite entertaining, although how it is nominated for 7 Oscars I will never understand. Now “Star Wars” I absolutely loved. I came in with mixed anticipations, but ended up very pleased, despite its flaws it was a very good film, and absolutely worthy of the Star Wars universe.

I also FINALLY watched some great classics, both old and not quite that old, such as “The Shawshank Redemption”, “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Hamlet” (1948), all great films.
