The 10 Best Films of 2015

These movies are the toast of 2015 filmmaking. The reason why we all enjoyed going to the cinemas this past year. They thrilled us, they made us laugh, they made us weep and overall, they created unforgettable memories.

10 | Jurassic World
Jurassic World is a fun and entertaining roller coaster of adventure and spectacle with a good balance of escapism, humour, thrills and chills that you will not doubt enjoy. Full Review

9 | Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
Everything comes together in Rogue Nation. The grand and marvelous sets supplement the ridiculously creative stunts to give the audiences just the right twinge of danger, while the intrigue is edge-of-the-seat stuff. Full Review

8 | Furious 7
Furious 7’s loud moments are perfectly weighted with intimate ones. And with Paul Walker’s shadow hanging over the film, what previously seemed like typical Furiouspeak now takes on a honest, more solemn meaning. Full Review

7 | Selma
It beautifully recreates 1960s America with the set and costume design. The cinematography impeccably utilizes a muted feel of 60s footage helping to pull you back into history. Action and tension scenes are perfectly juxtaposed with those of conversation and reflective moments giving you an intimate view of the main players in this struggle. Full Review

6 | The Walk
The Walk resembles a nostalgic memory or dream... But the most exhilarating thing about The Walk is the impressive display of 3D filmmaking. Full Review

5 | Ant-Man
If Ant-Man’s constant shark-like progression is its strength, the cinematography is its brilliance. The imagination and execution of the visuals are unlike anything seen before... Ant-Man is cool. More often than not using that word to describe a movie comes off as lowbrow and unintelligent but this is the first time in 2015 that the word suffices. Full Review

4 | The Martian
Damon’s devotion to The Martian role is palpable and his use of humour to deal with his situation, effortless; I can already hear the Oscar buzz. Full Review

3 | Inside Out
Inside Out is more than just an entertaining film; it gives an interesting and heartfelt insight into how emotions influence behaviour. Full Review

2 | Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The Force Awakens is a triumph of visual storytelling... Ultimately, it will go down as not only one of the most memorable movies of 2015 but of cinema history. It is thrilling, it is entertaining, it is touching and it is a must-watch. Full Review

1 | Mad Max: Fury Road
Calling it awesome would be a huge understatement. It’s a GREAT movie that encompasses many social messages as well as some ‘kick-ass’ action. Full Review

Honourable Mentions
Crimson Peak
Straight Outta Compton
Bridge of Spies
