I wasn’t going to do a top film list of 2015 for another week or so because there are still a lot of things that I need to see like The Revenant, The Big Short and Creed. I’m almost positive all 3 will make my updated list in a few weeks. Over all I will say I didn’t see nearly as many smaller indie titles as I normally do, but most of the big tent pole films in 2015 really delivered. Seems like the studios really focused on story and character instead of mere spectacle.
My biggest surprise was how much I truly adored The Peanuts Movie (far superior to Inside Out) and keep screaming at anyone who will listen that Mad Max: Fury Road is the most overrated piece of trash I’ve ever seen. I still say Fast and Furious 7 was my favorite movie of 2015. Without further commentary, here’s my list of favs (subject to change in the next few weeks), in no particular order (other than my first 3 picks).
Fast and Furious 7
The Peanuts Movie
The Hateful 8
Straight Out of Compton
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
Me & Earl and the Dying Girl
