The Worst Movies of 2015

Addison Wylie 2015 cranked out a lot of great movies.  I was actually able to form a “best of” list before even thinking of those cinematic duds.  However, that doesn’t excuse the following films.  These frustrating films put my patience to the test, even so far as to push me out of the movie altogether.  Don’t worry though, I returned to finish that defeating film.  And, yes, it was the worst film I saw all year.

The Best Movies of 2015

Addison Wylie 2015 was a great year for movies, and I hope returning readers will see those results on the lists below.  However, I understand if my favourites at the tip of the iceberg aren’t surprising – they haven’t changed since the mid-year report.  A couple of excellent documentaries, and an army of dogs set the bar astronomically high.  On another note, I hope people will consider checking out the films that flesh out the…

Wylie Writes’ 2015 Mid-Year Report

Addison Wylie We’re halfway through the year, and I’m confident movies are “back on track”.  2014 had some admirable features, but it seemed like everyone collectively decided to focus on technical achievements.  As far as award darlings are concerned, our minds have yet to be blown by this year’s selections.  However, 2015 has given movie goers wonderful experiences. Killers made me feel queasy, but in a good way.  Its story about two serial murderers was…

Select filmmakers started out with a simple subject, but then were forced to change their perspective every time a new layer was stripped away. Because of that, Being Ginger and Kung Fu Elliot were really special docs considering how personal they became. Movie goers also received an eclectic palette of comedies. It was a year where studios were…

Wylie Writes’ Ten Worst Movies of 2014

By: Addison Wylie There’s an unspoken rule to being a film critic that states we’re not allowed to complain about our job.  We are offered free movies, we get to talk to fascinating people, and we get to offer our two cents to our own moviegoing communities.  But, I would like to think – every once in a while – we’re allowed to vent about how much mediocrity we take in on a yearly basis….

Wylie Writes’ 2014 Mid-Year Report

By: Addison Wylie As much as I would like to believe that 2014 has proven to be a great year for movies so far, I can only instantly recall the films that have underwhelmed or flunked altogether. There’s been a steady flow of mediocrity, which isn’t exactly something to celebrate.  I suppose matters could be much worse, but those flatlining flicks have left me in a state of trapped befuddlement while I watched them.  These…

Wylie Writes’ Ten Best Movies of 2013

By: Addison Wylie Now that we’ve recognized the bad movies that were slingshot at audiences last year, it’s time to move on and engulf ourselves in the cream of the crop. 2013 introduced a wide variety of great films to audiences.  I feel like I say that every year, but as I scour my selected picks, the only thing these movies share are the odd genre they’re grouped in. Take documentaries, for example.  Audiences were…
