Share your five favourite movies of last year with the community!
Last year was a big year for movies. The 3D rage seems to have finally ebbed down a little, Hollywood rediscovered the old masters (Hugo and 'The Artist'), an Iranian movie (IMDB link) was widely seen as the best film of the year, and Europe's cinema got more exciting and fun than it was in the past years.

I would like you all to share your top five movies of last year, giving others the opportunity to experience flicks you've truly enjoyed, and hopefully find some new favourites, yourself!

To kick the list off, here are my five favourite movies released last year:
1. Drive
2. Le Havre - also the Film Club movie of the month!
3. Melancholia
4. Midnight in Paris
5. We Need To Talk About Kevin

    Okay, so my memory will likely fail me here and I'll probably forget some awesome movie(s) from last year. But, I'll give it a shot anyway...

    1. Drive (excellence all around)
    2. Sucker Punch (so fantastical and such wonderful music!)
    3. Source Code (awesome concept)
    4. Attack the Block (so original)
    5. Margin Call (wonderful acting and I can't believe they made a movie about a financial company so engrossing)

    Worth noting here that I haven't yet watched several of the big "critical award winner" type movies from 2011 - The Artist; Hugo; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; etc. So, don't know whether those would have made the list or not.

    1. The Raid 2
    2. Guardians of the Galaxy
    3. Birdman
    4. Captain America: TWS
    5. Big Hero 6

    Although the last 2 are interchangeable for me, both kinda took me by surprise by how good they were. And I know it wasn't asked but so far Mad Max: Fury Road has been my favorite movie of 2015.
