Russelling Reviews: Top 8 for the top half of 2015

Russelling Reviews: 
Top 8 of the first half of 2015

I was talking with a friend about the year in the films. They were saying that I had not given out too many high ratings this year. There have been box office records set with Furious 7 and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but overall the year has been slim pickings for quality cinema. I am hoping that the second half of the year provides more cinematic joy. 

There have been a few gems in 2015. Check out the reviews, give the films a look and tell me what you think. What were your favourites, so far, in 2015?

1. Mad Max : Fury Road
2. The Avengers : Age of Ultron
3. Cinderella
4. The Age of Adaline
5. Ex-machina
6. Paper Planes
7. Man Up
8. Shaun the Sheep Movie
