It's that time of the year again -- the time for lists. Making them is interesting because all of a sudden you're forced to decide what was actually memorable from 2015. It turns out a lot of movies were.
In a year where "Jurassic World" stampeded over box-office records while many mid-budget releases under-performed, plenty of films rose above the debris. It pains me to omit "It Follows," "Love & Mercy," "A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence," "Queen of Earth," "The Hateful Eight" and "Amy" from this list. But the 20 movies that did stand out -- the ones that kept me thinking and laughing -- are excellent. Let's get right to it.
