My Top Ten Movie Moments of 2015

Last year, it took me no time at all to post this list. Maybe because I actually hadn't seen all that many new movies, so it wasn't too hard to pick my favorite moments. As it were, this year, I saw 93 movies that were released in 2015 (so far!), so the pool of memorable moments was more than a little overwhelming. But when push comes to shove, the best moments always stand out, even if the movie itself didn't.

Some of these are common favorites, some much less so. Some of the films can be found on my Top 10 of 2015 list, while most of them, well... can't. Either way, all of these scenes stuck in me, and maybe they stuck in you, too. (You may also notice, I'm a sucker for dance sequences.)
