This past month I watched 21 films. A few were terrible, most were good. There were also plenty of rewatches, most relating to my Best Animated Feature Oscar project. But if I’m being honest, only Mad Max and Selma truly mattered.

But anyways, here’s the whole deal:

Top 10

  1. Mad Max: Fury Road (George Miller, 2015)
  2. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (George Miller,1981)
  3. Selma(Ava DuVernay, 2014)
  4. Babe: Pig in the City (George Miller, 1998)
