Greetings and Salutations Once Again Audience, here is my Top 5 best Movies of 2015 but first a couple Honorable mentions. Star Wars: Episode VII, Creed And The Revenant, Also…
Honorable mentions: Steve Jobs: It takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution, to paint a portrait of the man at its epicenter. The story unfolds backstage at three iconic product launches, ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac. This is a bit of a cheat but I wanted this movie in my top 5 but After seeing the Room later, unfortunately Steve Jobs was pushed out of my top 5 so I thought I give it a shout out. 6 out of 10
#5 The Room: After five-year-old Jack and his mother escape from the enclosed surroundings that Jack has known his entire life, the boy makes a thrilling discovery. I almost didn’t see this movie and I’m so glad I did. I like strong movies with depth and emotion. I seen the trailer and thought it looked like a straight to cable movie. The room starts off that way but quickly draws you in and makes you as though your this room is your whole world. You feel for Jack and want to go throw this journey with him. This movie isn’t perfect. Some scenes run a little long and slows the pace to a crawl. This movie could have easily had been bad but the casting was on point. Also the most important scene in the whole movie was a little lame and pulled me out a bit but then they focus back on Jack and I forgot all about it. I give Room 7 out of 10.
#4 Ex Machina: A young programmer is selected to participate in a ground-breaking experiment in synthetic intelligence by evaluating the human qualities of a breath-taking humanoid A.I. Wow… Alex Garland Is one of my favorite wrights having wrote Sunshine, 28 days Later, Dredd and now Ex Machina. While some of these didn’t go over well with mass movie goers, They set with me just fine. Ex Machina was casted perfect. This really turned me on to Oscar Isaac who played “Nathan”. I’m not sold on Domhnall Gleeson who played “Caleb” but he did a great job here. but the really star of this movie was Alicia Vikander “Ava” She was so perfect for this movie. Alicia Vikander made this movie believable. I felt bad for her. I wanted her to be freed and live a life on the out side which is strange due to the fact she is not even alive. That just goes to show how good Alex Garland is at writing. Now I will say that I didn’t like the ending, but I think it ended the way it needed to end. That’s really the only bad thing I have to say about the movie. 7.5 out of 10
#3 The Martian: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney played by Matt Damon is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. This movie was my most anticipated movie from 2015 and Ridley Scott did not disappoint. Matt Damon did a great job. I the CGI mars was so good. Drew Goddard did an amazing job on the screen play. I really had very little to say about The Martian that hasn’t already been said by movie scene. I give it 7.5 out of 10.
#2 Inside Out: After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school. I didn’t expect much taking my own little girl to see Inside out. It had such depth That I feel like I haven’t seen since The Lion King. Honestly this is one of the best movies of the year. If you have not seen this yet, please treat your self. This movie focuses on Riley and her emotions in a new place. She reminded me of my little girl and tugged at my heart strings in just the right way. I cryed and my daughter did to. We left the movie wanting more and kept My daughter engagerd in talking about it, which she rarely does. She 8 and love music and doesn’t like to talk movies with me much but we talked all the way home. Casting was good, Store was great and pace was on point. I gave this movie 8 out of 10
# 1 Spotlight: The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core. I first heard about this project and didn’t care for it. Then I seen the trailer and was a little curious, based on it staring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Liev Schreiber. Mark Ruffalo I first seen in 13 going on 30, While I hated the movie, Ruffalo really stood out to me. I thought why isn’t this guy in more stuff. He now legitimizes projects for me. Plus hes the best Hulk we ever had. Anyways Spotlight was really good. It throws a lot of info at you but helps you throw it so you don’t get lost. The casting was dead on and Liev Schreiber was perfect in this. Hes a little hit and miss for me but I honestly thought be was great in this and hope to see more from him soon. Spotlight focus on some hard subject matter but handles it respectfully. I have no complaints on this movie I give it 8.5 out of 10.
