Top Ten Movies of 2015 with the Best Special Effects

This list compiles the movies released in 2015 that featured the most breath-taking special effects.
The Top Ten
1 Star Wars: The Force Awakens Star Wars: The Force Awakens Product Image

Considering it's a Star Wars film, it was bound to have good visuals, but because it was made in a time that there could be better effects than when the original trilogy was made, in my opinion, this is the Star Wars film with the best special effects.

I really respect any film that uses practical effects most of the time and only uses CGI when it absolutely needs to, and Star Wars: TFA is a great example of a film that does that. And even when there is CGI, it's still well done.

To the toxic Star Wars fans who say this is a poor film, you are wrong. As a Star Wars fan myself, this is the only good film out of the trilogy.

The movie could have just been a series of random images and I still would have been amazed with it because the visuals are masterful.

2 Mad Max: Fury Road Mad Max: Fury Road Product Image

Considering that the movie was primarily made using practical effects absolutely blows me away.

3 Furious 7 Furious 7 Product Image

Digitally re-creating Paul Walker for the end scene should have won this movie the Best Visual Effects Oscar. It really deserved it. The fact that it didn't even get a nomination was a pretty big insult.

If it's almost impossible to tell when Paul Walker was actually playing the scene or not, they obviously did something right!

4 Jurassic World Jurassic World Product Image

Aside from 'Jurassic Park III', each film in the series has brought the highest-possible-quality effects available at the time. Film # 4 did not disappoint.

God there is nothing more badass then watching a t Rex fight to the death with some raptors

5 Avengers: Age of Ultron Avengers: Age of Ultron Product Image

When it comes to quality effects, look no further than Marvel Studios. You know they're going to bring their A-game (see what I did there? ).

6 The Revenant The Revenant Product Image

If you thought that they just merged bear footage in with Leo's performance footage, you're mistaken. That bear was CGI. Amazing, I know.

7 Terminator Genisys Terminator Genisys Product Image

The digital re-creation of the opening to 1984's 'The Terminator' is what earned this movie a spot on the list. You absolutely would not have been able to tell that the younger T-800 is CGI unless you'd been informed of the face prior to seeing it.

8 The Martian The Martian Product Image

You will believe you are watching a man trying to survive on Mars. Not for one second will you doubt your eyes.

This was a great movie. My favorite for the year

I've seen the trailer and it's enough to tell me this is the best movie I will watch

9 Ex Machina Ex Machina Product Image

It won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects... somehow. The effects are brilliant, of course, but they're subtle. I definitely deserved the credit but, nonetheless, I am amazed that it beat out all these other films (many of which didn't even receive nominations).

10 Ant-Man Ant-Man Product Image

One of the best movies ever!

The Contenders
11 Bahubali Bahubali Product Image
12 Pixels Pixels Product Image

Two words arcade games

13 Terminator: Genesis Terminator: Genesis Product Image
14 The Walk The Walk Product Image

Watch this movie in 3-D and tell me it's not deserving of being here.

15 Cinderella (2015) Cinderella (2015) Product Image

Horrible movie! The costuming looked like it was puked from marylin Manson lady gaga and Osama bin ladens dead body. The acting is terrible the script is off key. The only thing they got right was the music. The whole entire movie was like 2 hobos in a diaper full of it! I recommend not seeing this movie from the depths of Hell!

Everyone knows the story now stop making ten billion movies about it

16 Tomorrowland Tomorrowland Product Image
17 The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Product Image

Awesome movie. Not as good as the book, but is a fair visual.
