Second Quarter of 2015


We've made it half way through 2015 and yes, you guessed it, it's time for my quarter end review.

Below is a summary of my grades for the 105 films I saw that were released in the U.S. this quarter (either in theaters or on Video on Demand).  Check them out and then refresh your memory of the films of the first quarter.

As usual, many of the best movies this quarter were released on Video on Demand at the same time as or even before their limited theatrical runs.  There were a lot of great ones.  And you can see many of them right now without even leaving your home.
    
As always, I welcome your feedback, whether it be on here, on my Flieder on Film Facebook page, on Twitter @FliederonFilm, shoot me an email at bflieder@gmail.com, or just yell really, really loudly.  If you like what I provide here then positive feedback and sharing with your movie lover friends is always much appreciated.
