The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Review
Best of Film
Normally, this would be a list of 15 of our favorite films this year, but instead, we’ve chosen the five we’ve loved most with three reasons as to why. It ends up being 15 in the end, get it? Yes? No? Hopefully.
Best of Music
Every year a number of new songs end up on our list iTunes’ top 25 most played, but we have a great feeling that the songs on this particular list will be cherished for much longer than a year.

I’m dumbfounded by the lack of positivity surrounding this film amongst critics and thus it’s a great reminder of the notion that at this day and age, it appears people see a movie merely to judge it. And thereby, the magic of films is not only overlooked, but we’re essentially taught that nothing matters more than thrilling plots or perhaps heavy action sequences. As an enormous fan of Marvel, I hope I’m forgiven when I say The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was actually the greatest film I’ve seen all summer. Seeing as how this’ll probably project backlash due to the fact that Mad Max: Fury Road is rated much higher, while I thought the film was riveting in every way it could’ve been, it’s not something I find myself wanting to watch over and over again. The Man from U.N.C.L.E however is a phenomenal spy drama with the right amount of heart and humor, fascinating characters, organic performances, engaging action sequences, an exceptional score, gorgeous cinematography, and style.
