My Top Movies of 2015

Another year has gone by and it’s been a good year. As such, I will continue the tradition I started last year by doing my top six movies of the year list. Yeah, six is a rather odd number, but last year I just couldn’t settle on 5. So going forward, I hope to always just stick with six. To give myself so leeway, this list is only my personal favorite, and being such I don’t have to be overly objective. So lets jump In.

Today, Netflix is responsible for around 37% of all internet traffic, and they have produced several shows that rival content created by the major networks.  I’m gonna recommend 5 of those shows.  Shows like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and DareDevil are already pretty well known, this list is not for them.
