    Yes @kenmorefield -I'm nominating Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    Looking over the master list again: I'd like to revisit with a nomination: Bridge of Spies, Creed, and Infinitely Polar Bear. Mark Ruffalo was astoundingly funny and depressing at the same time in "Polar Bear". The story was brilliantly written. High recommendation from me on this film.

    This one may sound a bit crazy to some ... but I've got to say the most enjoyable time I had at the theatre this year was watching "Antman." It was a different kind of Marvel, superhero film and had a message focused on family, and finding one's purpose (even in the most odd of circumstances). It was a creative take on redemption, sacrifice, and selflessness. I nominate this (if it hasn't already been).

    Ken, do we have the latest list of those with multiple nominations yet? I've cycled through the 9 pages here -and I've got a few that I don't think were on the list(s), but I may have missed them.

    Sorry Ken -Yes this was an official nomination

    I watched "Creed" for a 2nd time and continue to be impressed with numerous aspects of this film . The acting, cinematography, story, and design. Making something old new again is a difficult task and I feel it was done here.

    I applaud both of these films as well

    I screened James White and was incredibly impressed by the story, and the emotional character-driven piece of coming to terms with "reality" . Questions of "how do we face pain, how do we face responsibility, how do we face sadness" all provide relevance for critical thinking for Christians and non-Christians.

    I would also like to nominate: "Son of Saul" (Hungary) "Embrace the Serpent" (Columbia) If these have already been nominated and I missed the thread -count this as a second ... or third ...

    I will second : Hitchcock/Truffaut Truth The 33

    I second "Amy" and couldn't find "Listen to me Marlon" in the thread -that gets my vote too
