Chris and Dylan sharpen their knives, detach themselves from any emotional connections, lock themselves in rooms across the country from each other, and yell about the best acting (male and female), best cinematography, best screenplay, best directing and the best scenes in film of 2015. Next week we will have our personal year-end lists for the best and worst films of 2015. There should not be any debates, just lots of us being excited about the year in film.
Click past the Joe Manganiello gif for YouTube videos (separated by category, will be added throughout the next couple days) and the complete list of nominees and winners.

It’s almost Christmas time! So Chris and Dylan strapped in and watched the new horror film from Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘R Treat), Krampus. The festivities continue with the guys discussing James Franco as Tommy Wiseau, why we’re excited for Batman V Superman now, and how Netflix will rule the TV world with double the programming in 2016. Chris finally saw Room and he talks all about how he bawled like a baby, and Dylan talks about The Good Dinosaur, Pixar’s newest film. Next week, we are reviewing The Big Short, but there will likely be some other new releases.

Room may come across as a divisive film. Brie Larson is incredibly talented and her role here as Ma or Joy Newsom is another piece of evidence to support that. Jack, as played by Vancouver native Jacob Tremblay, is an engrossing character and he is played to an extraordinary standard by the young actor. In fact, all facets of acting are near perfect. But this movie seems to exist as an actors showcase and that’s it.
