Devin & Amy count down their Top 10 Films of 2015 as they decide which movie they will choose to be inducted into the Canon. Will they nominate Jurassic World? What about Creed? One thing is for sure, they cannot induct Mad Max again. Tune in for the discussion -- and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote for both films!

Chi-Raq
In all fairness I haven't seen Creed and I totally expect to love it. (I would've preferred a Tangerine V Chi-Raq debate - that'd be tough) However with Chi-Raq, I think for all it's sloppiness and misses it lands big a lot - it's ambitious and wild and angry and important in both content and style. I really loved hearing you both talk about it.

Both movies are a bad choice - it so clearly should have been TANGERINE!

Chi-Raq.

I was going to abstain (as I had only seen Creed), but the opportunity to see Chi-Raq came up, today.

It has been since Inside Man that I was last entertained by a Spike Lee film and I'd have to go back to 2002's The 25th Hour to find one that I feel as strongly about as Chi-Raq. There is some questionable storytelling choices in Chi-Raq, but Spike Lee shows he is still a great director.

If Devin had nominated Tangerine, this would have been a much harder vote for me.

Great episode, but I'm gonna be the pronunciation a**hole here. You've gotta pronounce Chi-Raq correctly. It's not Chiraq (Shurock), it's Chi-Raq (Chi like "eye", or Shy-Raq. Sorry - it was hurting me.

It's pronounced SHY-raq, like saying "Eye". Sorry that was bothering me. Great episode - so many movies to catch up on. I loved Creed! Also - no mention of the film Brooklyn? A little surprised by that.
