Yesterday I did a list of My Top Ten Movies Watched At Home In 2015 so today I’m posting My Top Ten Movies That I Saw In The Cinema In 2015 (going by UK release date – I know some of these were 2014 in America).
Like yesterday, I’ll just list them (counting down to my favorite – plus I’ve again included the next five as honorable mentions) but feel free to further discuss any with me in the comments. The one thing I’ll say is that number one and two are closer than you’d expect considering what a big fan I am of the series of one of them. I actually think that number two is, technically, the better film. But nostalgia won out… 🙂 Oh, and I’m very proud that I managed to review all of these! Here’s my list:
14. Avengers: Age Of Ultron
13. Kingsman: The Secret Service
12. Terminator Genisys
8. Big Hero 6
5. Inside Out
4. It Follows
3. Ex Machina
1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Fury Road is awesome! But it’s not Star Wars… 🙂
**If you can’t live without knowing how I’ve ranked the rest, you can see the full list of all 29 movies I went to see in 2015 HERE. Have a Happy New Year, everyone! I’ll be posting My Top Ten Books Read In 2015 tomorrow so be sure to read that while you’re hungover. Ha!**
Oh! I have to add this: Nothing makes my day more than when some 80’s movie star briefly acknowledges my existence on Twitter. 😉 Marshall R Teague, who was in the f*%king awesome ROAD HOUSE, retweeted my Road House review a couple of days ago. Everyone! You must watch Road House if you’ve never seen it! Put it on your Bucket Lists!!!!!
Few we disagree on but lots more we do. Inside Out was so great and I loved ExMachina and Mad Max Fury Road so great!
Inside Out went even further up in my estimation after watching it again at home over Christmas. I figured it would.! 🙂
Some great films in there!
Agreed! That’s why they’re in my top ten. 😉 Really, though, 2015 was a great year for films!
I eagerly await how well you do in my annual quiz haha.
I kicked ass. 😉 lol!
I thought you might haha.
Great retweetage there! Also a great list, Happy New Year 🙂
Thanks! Happy New Year to you too! Yeah, retweets like that make me way happier than they should… Lol 🙂
Some interesting choices there! Not many I’d really disagree with out of the ones I’ve seen, though maybe in a slightly different order — I didn’t like either Big Hero 6 or Inside Out as much as other people, and I must say I enjoyed Ant-Man considerably more than Age of Ultron.
I’m a little bit ashamed I’ve still not got round to It Follows and Ex Machina. Both are on my Blu-ray pile, too! Some targets for January, I think. Good top 2, though. Both definite contenders for my #1 (which I’ve yet to start really thinking about…)
Thanks! Glad we mostly agree on stuff. 🙂 I almost kind of preferred Ant-Man to Ultron as well – I almost put them the other way around. I hope you like It Follows & Ex Machina as much as I did! Have you decided on a number one yet?
Awesome list, and equally great to have Marshall R Teague join in. 🙂
Thanks! And, yes – I loved that retweet! Lol 🙂
Met him briefly over at an target range (back when I practiced field archery); nice guy, and I complemented him on his splendid henchman villainy in ‘Road House’, too.
Haha! That’s awesome! Way cooler than a retweet. 😉
Star Wars was great…but it was no Shaun the sheep movie. Just saying.
Lol! Well, I’ve not seen Shaun The Sheep but I guess I better if it’s somehow better than Star Wars. 😉
Sadly I’ve only seen 3 films on this list. I had a bad year for seeing films. I would agree with Ex-Machina thought 🙂
Yes! I loved Ex Machina. 🙂 What were the other two? It Follows?
Yes, It Follows, which I wasn’t crazy about and The Peanuts Movie, which me and my wife adored for its nostalgic aspects.
Well, that’s an interesting combo! Lol. I ADORE Peanuts too so of course loved the movie. 🙂
Earlier in the year I saw San Andreas and Terminator Genysis and both were great summer Blockbuster entertainment but probably not so memorable in the long run.
Yeah – but those popcorn movies are fun to watch sometimes! 🙂
Nice list. Many I haven’t seen. So will hopefully check them out this year….
Thanks! Well, I suggest starting with number one & working down the list to number ten… 😉
That’s a pretty solid list there, I tend to think 2015 was actually a very solid year for movies. Lots of massive projects with record-setting expectations riding on them. I have a feeling this coming summer will be similar. You should stop on by the Digibread Awards when you have a chance and make fun of the movies I put in my list. You’ll probably be mad. 😀
I agree – I think 2015 was a very good year for movies. I hope 2016 can be similar. Oh yes – I have to check out the Digibread Awards!!!! I’ll try to not be TOO mad. 😉 I’ll be by later after the kid is in bed!
Good picks. Wasn’t expecting Krampus in a Top10. From your list, I really loved Ex Machina and Star Wars.
Ha! Well, yeah – Krampus isn’t great & is certainly flawed but I had enough fun with it for it to just make it into the ten. 🙂 Those two really are awesome. But Fury Road most certainly belongs at the top too. 😉 I can’t remember – have you seen It Follows?
I really loved It Follows. It will probably crack my Top 10 (coming soon)… But Mad Max won’t… Not to be sacreligious 😉 but I didn’t love it as much as everyone else. Still tons of fun and super exciting but not in my Top 10.
DAMN! I LOVED Fury Road!!!! 😉
It definitely ranked up there with other action flicks. It was just nutso exciting. I really enjoyed some of the epic framing (cool camera shots). And I loved Furiosa! It was definitely a great ride at the cinema.
Great list! My top three this year were 1) Star Wars, 2) Fury Road, and 3) Ant-Man. I was really hoping Star Wars would be my No. 1 😉 but Fury Road and Ant-Man caught me pleasantly by surprise.
Thanks! 🙂 Yeah, Fury Road was SUCH a close second. I didn’t expect to love it so much. I did like Ant-Man more than I expected, too! I almost put it above Ultron. 🙂

I freaking love your top three picks 😀 😀 😀
I must say, I found 2015 to be quite a bland year for cinema in comparison to 2014. Sure, we had some really, really big movies (seriously, Star Wars and Mad Max and Jurassic World all in one year), but there wasn’t too much more between it all.
Hmm. I actually just looked at my 2014 list & you’re right – I REALLY liked all of my top ten in 2014 but this year I wasn’t as crazy about the lower half of the list (I mean, Krampus made the top ten this year – it certainly wasn’t exactly “good”). But, DAMN, I just loved my top three this year so much! They’ll be all-time favorites. 🙂 Don’t think any 2014 films will.
I love these year end posts. 2015 tunred out to be a truly great year (Brooklyn, Carol and Room especially among my favorites). We share some picks. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mad Max: Fury Road, Ex Machina and Inside Out all made my list including honorable mentions. Have a look: http://fastfilmreviews.com/my-top-10-movies-for-2015/
I still need to see Brooklyn, Carol & Room! Really want to see them. May go to Room tomorrow. Happy 2016! 🙂 Replying during my work lunch so will stop by later & check out your list too. Yeah – I love year end lists! 🙂
Very nice list! It was a fantastic year in film, so my choices varied quite abit from yours! But still, you really have an eclectic mix 🙂 Ex Machina and Inside Out were so good. Read my list if you have the time and tell me what you think!
Thanks! Those two really were excellent films. 🙂 I missed out on a lot of the big December films because they don’t come out in the UK until January or February. I’ll look at your list later after work! 🙂
