2010 WC was the worst of the decade IMO. Thought 2014 was the most enjoyable one.

Andy Murray winning Wimbledon was quite something.

The London Olympics were amazing though.

That South African WC was comfortably the worst of all time. The fucking daft vuvuzala racket.

Best sporting event - England beating NZ in the WC Final with ultimately that super-over ... never seen anything like it!

Although I have to say Aguero's goal deep in injury time to win the title was ridic as well.

Watched both live - absolutely incredible viewing!

Best Film - Either The Revenant, or Three Billboards

If I had to pick one, the former simply because I felt they nailed it, the pain of living back in 1800s frontier America (I'd guess!)

The Revenant bear scene. GodIsGod

Most overrated film -that moonlight thing. Think it has 99% on metacritic. Was decent and no doubt it gave a voice to many unheard, but I doubt many people have went back for a second look.

I'd also add Shutter Island; looked oooh and the script I thought was gripping and quite fantastic.
