My Favorite Movie Moments of 2015


2015 is coming to a close, and I’d say it was another great year for movies! Not only were we treated to incredible blockbusters like Mad Max Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but plenty of incredible films that flew under the radar as well, like Room and The Lobster. 

I’ll soon give a breakdown of my favorite films of the year, but in the meantime I wanted to cast a wider net on my favorite movie moments of the year, whether they be entire sequences, singular character beats, or even just a line of dialogue.
