With recent events in Hollywood, this week’s theme comes with great responsibility. And with the current trend of female led movies, I want to showcase the side of female characters that’s even stronger and more powerful, than simply taking the lead in a movie. We have supportive female characters, who are strong on their own but even stronger as a team, because it’s important to stick together – female or male.

While there might be some things that never change, we as people still constantly evolve just like the world around us. Our thoughts, our tastes, our opinions – with every new grain of information something in us could change completely.

Here comes the most important list of last year – the best movies of 2015. I should warn you though, this list is a weird one because I had only two 5 coffee cup rated movies I saw last year, and all the rest had been mushed into the 4 cup ratings – giving me a task of ranking A LOT of movies I liked in an order were many didn’t even make the cut. What that means is that this list is technically not set in stone, except the Top 3, that is not interchangeable!
