Top 10 Films of 2015

2015 will always be a special year for the Bit Players when it comes to film, not only because it was the year that the podcast actually began, but it was actually a great year for new movies. Childhood dreams were realized when we got more Star Wars, the character of Rocky Balboa was gloriously revitalized in Creed, Pixar delivered one of their finest and most impactful offerings to date, some of the obligatory novel adaptations were actually quite good, Mad Max redefined what it means to be an action movie, and a whole lot of characters horrifically died in gorgeous snowy settings. We predict that it was a year of films that, when we look back years later, will continue to offer some of our lifelong favorite watches, and our top 25 films of 2015 is the list that best embodies what was so great this year and will continue to be so for years to come.

Episode 27: It Follows (2015)

Watch your back and pick up your pace with this week’s episode on David Robert Mitchell’s instant horror classic It Follows starring Maika Monroe. The film perfectly plays upon a deep-seated American anxiety of protecting our youth from the horrors of adulthood and the loss of innocence that accompanies those horrors. Beautifully and intensely scored by Rich Vreeland (Disasterpiece), It Follows captures a sense of timelessness that allows the film to stand alone, without era or anchor. The guys also reveal what form “It” would take in their life and how they would ultimately defeat “It.”

Beautifully and intensely scored by Rich Vreeland (Disasterpeace), It Follows captures a sense of timelessness that allows the film to stand alone, without era or anchor, and there's nothing more timeless in film than beauty, which this film has in droves.
