I’m noticing that July is never a big month for movies, as far as quantity goes. I ended up with only 12 first-time viewings and half as many re-watches. I enjoyed all of them to some degree, except for one, so I’ll just go ahead and list the top 6 this time around

Also, if you haven’t read it, I published my extensive look at the best of 2015. Check it out.

On with the show.
