Top 10 Best Movies of 2015

The Top Ten
1 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I have always loved the star wars movies (which means the originals, not the prequels), and when I first heard it was being made by Disney, I was a little worried. I mean Disney is Disney, so I was afraid they would botch it up or something. Boy, was I wrong. I know this might sound crazy, but I almost like this one better than the 4th one. Let's face it the 4th one and the 7th one are almost the same movie. Same structure. The only three differences I can see, are that the "death star" or whatever they call is like a planet now and not a moon, there are new characters in this movie, while also keeping old classic characters, and they can make jokes about the originals, that they couldn't make in the originals, as how could a single movie, make jokes about a movie that would come out almost 4 decades later. And for these three reasons, I think this movie is almost better than the original. It may be better than the 4th, but there is no way this one is better than the 5th. The Empire ...more

Even though the story lacks a little bit of originality which is kinda disappointing but it wasn't much of an issue cause I thought the rest of the movie was amazing. It's definitely a Star Wars movie a lot of us have been waiting to see. After the disappointment of Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens is the total opposite of it. A movie that proves that from all the hype and anticipation it was totally worth the wait. Great acting, great dialogue, great humor, awesome action scenes, brilliant visual effects, some nostalgic and emotional moments and another terrific musical score from none other than John Williams. What can I say? it's an amazing movie

The best movie of the year. They broke so many records and deserve it. If you hate this movie, I'll have to call you crazy. It was really funny. I had very high expectations, and I was not surprised by the results. Probably the best movie I have ever watched in my entire life (I'm only a kid). Also I liked how they put some new characters in the movie. If critics are trying to criticize the movie, they would have a hard time criticizing the movie. Really good movie.

I saw this movie and it was awesome! it wasn't all "special effects" like the crappy prequel trilogy, It's the 2nd best Star Wars movie yet (Revenge of the Sith is better) And it's got me begging for episode 8. The screenplay and the Action is amazing! My favorite part was when Kylo Ren & Rey engaged in a major light saber battle! In fact I saw the force awakens 6 times in the span of a week. JJ Abrahams did a good job directing as if George Lucas did it there would have been too many special effects. Very creative. Pretty soon this will be the greatest movie of all time!

2 Inside Out

Age of ultron is a great superhero film, and should definitely be in the top tens, but inside out is special as it is inventive with its methods of describing and presenting the human psychology. it also can make people feel like children again from the genius humor, the plot is very unpredictablem except the end, and you will definitely feel a plethora of different feelings from the movie, which results in the end, satisfaction.

best movie of the year, along with Mad Max: Fury Road.

I absolutely loved it. Pixar worked hard on this project, due to the fact that their last few films hadn't really met the usual standards, and really redeemed themselves with a highly original concept executed brilliantly, showing every part of the human psychic, and has a very strong emotional core which propelled it forward into being an absolute masterpiece.

Well, Disney managed to climb out of 4 years of disappointment and make something truly adequate. It still stands as among my favourite animated films of all time (pretty big compliment) with likeable characters, relatable to lots of people, myself included, gorgeous animation and great emotional payoff. Probably my favourite film of 2015.

I honestly never thought what could've happen inside my brain. After watching this movie I kept thinking what's going on inside my head. And honestly, Joy showed me one good lesson. She never stop trying no matter how hard life knock her down, the most important thing is keep trying until you get what you want.

3 Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road is a jaw-dropping action masterpiece! I haven't been this entertained and impressed by an action film for quite a while. It's pure pulse-pounding entertainment and satisfaction that Mad Max: Fury Road brings. This is with the utmost certainty one of the greatest action films ever made and simply a spectacular piece of cinema overall. A thrilling quality film from start to finish. Every element of the film is beautifully constructed and brought together seamlessly. An instant buy as soon as it comes out on blu ray. What a lovely day, indeed!

Mad Max was arguably the film that stood out the most. Having won the most academy awards this year, it was also ranked the best movie of the year by rotten tomatoes. However, despite its success, the movie did not place in the updated version of the top 100 movies of all time, and for a bit of salt in the wound, Inside Out, which finished second in 2015, would place 11th on the updated all times. Nevertheless, Fury Road was a fantastic new installment to the critically acclaimed Mad Max franchise, and would go down as one of the best of all time in my opinion.

It should be number one...not only because it won FIPRESCI award for film of the year which boyhood won last year but because it's the best action movie since dark knight...it stars tom hardy as max who is great in this film and Charlize Theron who is a complete badass...everything in this film- score, acting, direction, costume design and of course the jaw-dropping action, is absoultely fantastic...kudos to George miller for making a action movie masterpiece and putting every other film director to shame in a time when there is such a desperate need for good action movies...it is the action movie we've been waiting for...

I'll start this off by asking why is this movie not even in the top 3? It is absolutely the greatest, most beautifully shot, and just jaw dropping action movie EVER. The movie is almost perfect, a rare thing these days, and it's so simple yet so beautiful. Avengers was flawed and cheesy, but I can see why it would be number 2. But please make this movie rank higher than JurASSic Turd!

4 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Vision+Handing Thor his Hammer = Pure Awesome

The lead in was tied absolutely perfect earlier in the film and meant to seem as though it was the whole joke. Then the package timed so well that when it was delivered I was so entirely surprised it's likely that for a moment I started to annoy the other patrons failing despite my best efforts to keep my laughter contained.

Flipping now to the other side of the coin, while I know little about the methods involved to successfully hack Stark tech I can see that it's possible such required no more than a few hours to complete which also should have given Ultron control of it. My counter to this is that Jarvis was protecting far more than nuclear missiles. Though I was still a little disappointed that I had such a hard time when trying to suspend my disbelief since all the various tech the Avengers had such the team's Quinjet, Col. Rhodes War Machine armor, Tony's Iron Man, and Hulk Buster armors. My additional counter is that ...more

The Avengers are back, and better than ever. This movie was awesome, and I could tell you since I've seen it. With Earth's Mightiest Heroes going up against Ultron, it's a sight to behold. Plus, This and Captain America 2 both lead up Captain America Civil War. And don't forget the part where Vision lifted Thor's hammer. Cool. Bottom line, Avengers Age of Ultron was great, and I can't wait for the next film.

I liked it, personally, and I loved how you get to see more of Black Widow and Hawkeye's back stories. But, to be honest, (SPOILER ALERT), Quicksilver was killed off too quickly, so you couldn't really see him develop throughout the movie. But I loved Scarlet Witch. She was such a badass.

Great movie. I love the added humor so there was some more happy moments. Great plot line and set up other movies so well. I was hyped and I got more then I wanted. Amazing movie and dialogue was amazing. Also the cast is top notch and always will be. Love this movie.

5 Jurassic World

I couldn't believe how good this was! Having loved the original films, I didn't go into the cinema with high expectations as delayed sequels aren't always that great. I was totally blown away with the story, acting, and special effects! The scene with Chris Pratt riding on his bike through the woods with the raptors alongside him is just awesome on so many levels!

It was a delight to have a better movie than Jurassic park 3 but doesn't have the same magic as the first one. It had elements of the first Jurassic park like the music and the banners from the first park. The CGI was bad to start but got better. Fun entertaining movie but wasn't amazing

I love this movie so much I could watch it over and over again Chris Pratt is amazing.. I love the part where he was riding the bike with the raptors along aside him that was like a family... but with dinosaurs this definitely deservers a number one

I have a Jurassic World poster in my room and I LOVED this. I was the one who wrote the negative comment for SW. I don't know why everyone hates this film. I don't get why everyone loves "The Force Awakens." I love a lot of action, the plot made sense, and I WILL get the DVD.

6 The Martian

Great mixtures of: clever Wit vs fast paced Sarcasm, a story of unimaginable isolation vs a truly lovable main character, finally the small sprinklings of hope spaced far enough from a terrible event vs keeping the overall tone as bleak as possible. All balanced in a way that for the average audience member including myself were so immersed as though they were going through with the characters. It is difficult to find a movie that can be seen as entertaining to such a wide range of ages and personalities, especially one that avoids placing many cracks in the very fabric of it's own reality.

This movie's plot is so much better than the big ones like jurassic world and age of ultron and it felt much more like you were really in the movie. I feel like people are just voting them for the sake of the action and buildup. not gonna lie, I loved both those movies, but this one takes the number 1 spot for me.

This is an amazing movie and by far one of the best I've seen- which says a lot because honestly I am strictly only into comedy and action. But this was really entertaining and by far one of the best of 2015.

Matt Damon has done it again. His excellent acting skills combined with an intriguing plot and stunning visuals all came together into one exceptional film. This is definitely in my Top 10 movies.

7 Ant-Man

I've got to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I wasn't really looking forward to seeing it because I thought it was a superhero movie, a genre I'm not a fan of, but it had a really good storyline despite the seemingly silly premise.

Pleasant surprise thought it would be terrible but Disney/Marvel works complete a complete miracle and makes this great, for those who have watched I thought the final scene was a bit to explosion filled...

My dad was watching this with my cousins, and they said I could join. Despite the fact that superhero movies aren't my favorite genre, after I finished watching it, I loved it! It had a very good storyline and it is a great movie.

Why is this movie not number one!? It was better than Avengers 1 and I would dare to say it's better Guardians Of The Galaxy! Jk. But it was suprisingly great! I took four people with me who aren't very fond of the Superhero genre and they LOVED it! Can't wait for the sequel in 2018!

8 Kingsman: The Secret Service

What I like about this movie is the tricks and how smart people think to solve problem quickly and under pressure. For example, there are scenes where they had to jump like a skydiver from the airplane and one of them didn't get a parachute on their back. So they had to help the one friend who didn't bring parachute and landed safely.
Another scenes that insane for me is when they were sleeping suddenly there was a lot of water, it will drown them if they don't work together to survive from it.
And absolutely there's a lesson you can take, it doesn't matter if you born as poor and you're nobody, what matter is what you do to everybody and that is what makes you worthy.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a highly entertaining and stylish film filled with charm, humor and a heavy dose of dazzling violent action. The cast is spot on and the characters are completely brilliant. A really well made and great looking film with a stunning soundtrack. Everyone shines in their roles and Colin Firth just knocked it out of the park, effortlessly cool and plainly awesome. Exciting and fun all the way through.

Kick Ass + James Bond = Kingsman The Secret Service. That's exactly how I describe this film, a mixture of the stylized violent scenes from Kick Ass and the storyline and concept of spies from James Bond. But the greatest thing about the movie isn't just the awesome action scenes, and cool characters, it's also the unique storyline that sets it apart from other stories full of cliches. That church scene though

It's Bourne + Bond and is an absolutely awesome spy film. It is surprisingly a comic book movie. This movie has some awesome action sequences (THE CHURCH SCENE! ) and was such a pleasant surprise.

9 The Hateful Eight

The Hateful Eight definitely deserves top 3 for 2015. The hype around Star Wars will make it unbeatable, but for it to be 14? come on!? This film was vintage Tarantino. Does no one appreciate real story telling, character building, dialogue driven, cinematic art any more? If it's not got enough explosions to shame Michael Bay or a simple plot where it's the world on the line, people won't see it anymore. If Die Hard came out this year, it wouldn't be appreciated and that's a sad time.

Great writing, acting, and plot. Tarantino has created a masterpiece yet again! A must see for any serious moviegoer.

Classic Tarantino! A suspenseful build packed with great dialogue, toward a tense standoff that leaves you breathless!

The ONLY problem I have with this movie is that they use the really nasty and really racist "N" word WAY too much. Other than that, this is a pretty kick ass movie!

10 Straight Outta Compton

One of the best movies I have seen in a long time. In my opinion the best movie of the year so far. I see no reason why this isn't at least in the top 5. Is it the racism that scares people away? Well it shouldn't because it's a pretty accurate depiction of what really happened. WATCH IT!

Should be around 5th or 6th, and should have won a few Oscars, thanks Hollywood. Great movie about a band and the issues the USA faced during the late 80's. Very educational and heart felt, extremely well acted, well written and directed, an amazing movie about one of the most influential music groups in recent history

Never expected a rap movie to make me cry haha, but seriously this should be in the top 10, really good film and educational too!

Straight out of compton is one of the best movie ever its all about the real things that happens in the hood that really wasnt so great but I was shocked about this movie. I thought the movie was gone be dumb but it wasnt.

The Contenders
11 The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2

I have to say, having read the books (and thinking the books were amazing), the "Part 1" was a serious let down. I had such high expectations for it, but it just didn't cut it for me. I still had high expectations for this one, and it absolutely went miles above my expectations. The acting was excellent, the special effects were amazing, and I think this movie perfectly portrayed the book. I loved it. Especially the epilogue.

This should at least be in the top 5! This movie was a great, beautiful, and tragic end to the Hunger Games series! I loved it! I laughed, cried, smiled... It was a beautiful movie and portrayed the book very well. Out of the four movies, this is my second favorite after the original The Hunger Games movie.

Sixth place? Why? It should have been in first place. It is so good. The plot is the best ever, and the characters are the best EVER. EVER!
Katniss is a great heroine. Peeta is so sweet. Finnick Odair is the best character in movies EVER. Just saying. Gale's a little great too.
Vote this up. Better than Star Wars in every ways possible. As far from mediocre a you can get. Love it!

I absolutely adore all the books and movies. Please keep your hate to yourself, or at least to a dull roar. I don't really care about your opinion to be honest.

12 Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

Number 14 on the list? Are you kidding me? You're telling me that Hotel Transylvania 2 and San Andreas were better than Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation? Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens hasn't even come out yet and it's number 5! come on now!

Best action film of the year, hands down. The series keeps getting more and more bombastic, yet it maintains enough thrill and heart to remain ever so engrossing. The Mission Impossible franchise may be the benchmark franchises when it comes to stuntwork as of now.

This is the best movie EVER! The storyline was well written and so reminiscent of the old Mission T.V. shows. The cast was great, especially the female lead. Cruise always delivers, just always! Plot twists, action, appropriate violence, car chases, high tech, special effects, it's all in this movie. Only thing missing was maybe a cameo by old T.V. mission stars.

That is a very well crafted pure action movie. The female character is outstanding and Tom Cruise is the only actor who can play this role in a way you almost believe it.

13 The Revenant

I loved The Revenant. I can understand that it was a little hard to watch at times, but the acting was incredible and the cinematography was some of the best I have ever seen, among other things. What I absolutely cannot understand is this movie being below Minions. Minions is an absolute piece of garbage made for the sole purpose of extracting as much money as possible from young children.

If there was ever a movie that totally absorbed your reality and made you feel like you were there, this is it. Masterful storytelling without a reliance on dialogue, although the acting was great. The cinematography is otherworldly and it should have won best picture (but I can understand the academy's choice). Simply a beautiful film that will surely stand the test of time.

This movie captured the view of if you were right there watching it happen. The makeup and costumes looked extremely and scaringly real so how is it so far down the list it's better than inside out and all the others, only reason it's not higher than inside out is because to many children come on this site. This movie was gritty,realistic, and intense.

The way it was shot was breathtaking, with cinematography being over the top, and with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy as the two main roles, who couldn't say no to this bear fighting movie madness!

14 Furious 7

Easily the best FaF movie. The action was phenomenal, but unlike some of the other movies, this one has great story and characters as well. Plus, it had a great send off for Paul Walker, while still making him seem like he was still there (plus the song at the end is terrific)

Overall, a movie that surpasses every expectation you could have about it, and the best Fast and Furious movie yet.

Best car racing and full action packed movie series, amazing visual stunts and entertaining one.

Whoever made this has really got to be out of their minds this is the best movie ever. It should be #1 no doubt.

A great movie and great tribute to Paul Walker. Made the death of the actor seem a life transformation for cast and family alike

15 Creed

This is a great movie! On my list its number 2. Love the ROCKY BALBOA series! (I wish the music that's in the other Rocky movies in it though) The other Rocky movies are better, but its funny and fun!

Creed was a great, what I thought was a spin off, but is actually a series.

Great movie with action and comedy go see it you'll have fun.

Should be top 5, Inside Out shouldn't be in the top 10 at all.

16 Spectre

This was an improvement over its dreadful predecessor but still lacking in a couple of elements.
I found Christoph Waltz to be a weak villain, particularly as Blofeld.
His performance is consistently good but I hate the whole adopted-brother childhood vendetta situation. It's like he's saying, my dad adopted you and he liked you more then me, is just absolutely dreadful and reduces Blofeld to being a whining toddler begging for a toy.
But them opening credits...
Oh, dear sweet Lord, Jesus flippin' Christ, any other possible positive
religious exclamations you can put in there, because that sequence is absolutely STUNNING.
Overall, Spectre is an improvement, but still not fantastic.
7/10

Maybe not the best bond movie, but it's still a solid 8/10 movie. I loved the whole beginning sequence with the day of the dead. My only criticism of the movie is the main bad guy wasn't in the movie enough. But another great bond flick.

I was told it wasn't that great because there wasn't enough action, but I was pleasantly surprised-great movie.

Blofeld was such a cool villain in this movie played by the one and only christoph waltz!

17 Sicario

Thought this was an intense, no idea what is coming next, sort of movie. It kept me on the edge of my seat because of the intensity of the story. Didn't need action scenes as there were plenty of scenes that were fast acting and in your face shocking. The plot was constructed so tightly and the scenes came with so many unexpected elements. Top 5 for sure. The choice of actors was awesome too. I plan to see it again!

Del Toro back to his best.

18 Minions

Yeah, yeah, I know, I know. You are all tired of minions. Whatever. I'm not. I liked this movie, the jokes were good, the climax was nicely done, there was plenty of creativity, good animation, and I still enjoy that minion humor. Minions are pretty much the zombies of kids movies, though.

Yayy! Go minions. Minions are the cutest thing ever, they rock! My fave minion is bob and his little teddy: Tim. As well as having a villain in the film and making your heart pound at the dramatic parts minions certainly does have its funny moments too!

Minions is the best animated film of all time. The minions are cute, especially Kevin & Stuart, the only thing to make this film better than the 2 prequels is making a story about the minions. Cause everyone likes minions.

You probably think this is just a stupid kids movie. It sort of is. But even though its targeted at kids its still enjoyed by adults. I know millions of adults that find this movie funny and creative.

19 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

Although this is a hit for children, I really enjoyed this film. I am 17 and have been a fan of SpongeBob since I was born. I love the fact that this movie has jokes that are centered for kids, but jokes that if you watch and listen closely, are geared for those of a more mature, or immature, mindset. It is a great family movie, and also a great movie if you want to sit down and laugh at some corny jokes. All around a 9/10 movie though. The movie had a long runtime, and could've featured a lot more in that time, but I feel like this movie is on par with the previous movie, and hopefully Nickelodeon can find more elaborate ways to include SpongeBob outside of T.V.-only airings.

After a decade of declining, halfwit shock humor on the show, this movie brings SpongeBob back to its former glory. The humor is much more reminiscent of the crazy yet clever jokes of the first 3 seasons, and it pays off very well. There are a few things that aren't so great, like the seagulls being kind of annoying. But overall, a fantastic return to form for the sponge, and a change I hope will move into the show as well.

I think this movie ties with the first SB movie. They both had really immature moments (especially the first one), the first one had very little characters, this one's plot was a bit of a mess and has a super misleading title, both their animation is good, but they are both pretty funny overall. Just give this movie some time, most people still have their nostalgia goggles on when looking at the first movie.

SpongeBob is my all time favorite character. I mean, who doesn't love him? So I was on the day this movie first premiered. I love it and I suggest it should be on top 5 or something. I know many of you think that SpongeBob is only for kids, but adults can enjoy this movie too. So please Watch It and Vote It so it can be listed in top 5

20 Ex Machina

Just because it wasn't a box office smash doesn't mean it's not a great movie. This is the best movie I've seen in a while - superb effects, editing, directing, and storytelling - and a movie that isn't even coming out this year is ahead of it.

A movie OUT OF THIS WORLD. People are robots. That's the message here. We are programmed by our surroundings. Our brain is our computer. We can sacrifice ourselves for love. Robots don't. It's called Soul. How can you give that to a robot. SEE the movie. See it in a quiet environment. You will feel like one.

One of the greatest movies I've ever seen. Its understandable that some people don't like it but the storyline is breathtaking and so are the special effects.

This should be in the top tens place. The movie was so underrated, it should have been a box office hit. It is amazing. If you haven't seen it, see it.

21 The Peanuts Movie

Many people feared this movie would ruin the franchise like many other have done so by modernizing both the characters and settings. Well not this one. The only step forward was the animation, which blends so perfectly with hand drawn and CGI, you will get use to it fast. The story and setting is loyal to the original material, while at the same time, it gives us something new. Finally after all this time, our poor protagonist's misfortune pays off with the happy ending he so much deserved.

This should be higher, it was FANTASTIC! It's probably one of the only CGI reboots of something that actually did it right. Every character acted like they should, there were plenty of gags from the original specials and strip, and it was funny! Seriously, I don't think I've ever laughed at a movie in a theater legitimately, but I did during this movie, a lot. I grew up with Peanuts and I was scared they would butcher the franchise, but I walked out of that theater wishing to see it again.

This should be in the top five. I loved it! It had many references to the other Peanuts specials, the humor was great, the scenes with the WW1 flying ace (Snoopy) were awesome, the voice acting was great, and the CGI looks amazing! Overall, 9.7/10. Any Fan of the Peanuts can enjoy this movie. I just know it.

Loved it, it has my favorite song in it by one of my favorite singers, Meghan trainor's better when I'm dancing, and I've been a fan of peanuts even since I was little!

22 Hotel Transylvania 2

Most underrated movie ever, people are saying, "This is retarded and dumb." well here's the thing, if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say it. There, problem solved.

Why are the people voting just to say it's bad? It's quite good to be honest. If you don't like it and you voted, you're making the film go higher up.

This was a good movie, better than hotel Transylvania 1, also this story makes more sense, even the funny parts makes me laugh to much.

Good movie... I guess. It was an ok movie, nothing special. The jokes were very funny put the plot was unfortunately poor. The 3rd movie has just been confirmed, and I hope this one does better.

23 Spotlight

This movie deserves the Oscar and has no business being so low on this list.

This movie definitely deserves to be number 1.It won the the Oscar for the Best Picture.It is a way better than avengers,star wars or any other any other sci-fi movie. This film has got a good meaning and a great cast too.

Seriously? Pixels is better than the Best Picture Winner?

Terminator genysis, insurgent, pixels and Ted 2 above this movie? This is ridiculous, such an incredible screenplay, great acting and should win best picture at the oscars

24 Bridge of Spies
25 Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection of F

Best movie ever
