With Christmas almost upon us, now seemed to be as good a time as any to unwrap the cinematic beast that has been 2015 and look over the highs and lows, as well as unveil my official Top 10 of the year. Feel free to agree, disagree or otherwise express yourself.

Because you can never have too much of a good thing, I was again gushing about the greatness of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road on Radio 3’s Morning Brew last Friday. I have now seen the film twice (in both 2D and 3D) and it is most definitely the action film to beat this year.
On this week’s dispatch I get more than a little enthusiastic about George Miller’s return to his hugely influential dystopian action franchise with Mad Max: Fury Road, then Fernando talks about Ana Lily Amirpour’s Iranian vampire drama, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Before that, we get into one of our regular rambling chats about walking, working and finding work-life balance as a freelancer.
