Yes, we’re already three weeks into 2016 but I finally managed to put together my movie rankings for 2015.  Because life.  I only managed to see 51 films this year, a paltry sum compared to Watson when he isn’t even trying. And eight of those were on a plane to or from China, making the theater total even lower.  Definitely a busy year, but overall a great one for movies.  Head after the jump to see how I ranked all 51!

Take this with a couple Kessel runs worth of salt, but Making Star Wars has compiled a single post with all of the rumored story leaks for Episode VII.  By extrapolating a few points, they’ve assembled what they think is the entire story of The Force Awakens.  I’m not sure it’s the whole story–some elements don’t connect as well as others–but it could very well be accurate so read at your own peril if you want to avoid spoilers.
