The end of 2015 approaches and that means the obligatory best of the year lists will soon be with us.
I think it’s also important to note the standout disappointment of the year too. I’m not miserable (much) but for someone who enjoys a cinema trip there is nothing worse than a major let down.
Bad films are bad films and there is very little can be down about that. A disappointing film however is in some ways more upsetting.
This year’s award for major disappointment (and I know I’m in a minority with this) was Mad Max Fury Road. I wanted to love it, the trailer excited me but when I sat down in the cinema I felt that the trailer was pretty much all you needed. This is nothing more than a 90 minute chase sequence.
My full tale of disappointment can be found here.
I know people loved this film and it will feature on many a ‘best of 2015’ list but for me it was the biggest let down of the year.
