It’s time for my annual look back at my top 10 favorite movies of 2015. While I do write the occasional movie review, I don’t consider myself to be a “film critic,” but rather more of an enthusiastic movie watcher. I enjoy a lot of movies I watch, but not many becomes “favorites.” So, this list here is not my picks for the “best” films of the year; these are merely my favorite movies of 2015.
I do get to see a lot of films every year, and my criteria for a “favorite” typically is one that keeps me entertained and makes me want to see it repeatedly. Admittedly, I tend to be drawn more towards the fantasy/superhero selections, and less towards the Oscar bait pictures. There will be plenty of other “Best Of 2015” lists being published here at Geeks Of Doom in the coming days that will take a more analytical look at 2015’s films, and will likely include more serious dramas. But for now, with me, you’ll get more fun picks than anything else.
With that, here’s a list of my Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2015.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Marvel Studios’ surprisingly successful Phase Two wrap-up Ant-Man would be making its way to home video on December 8, this morning comes the news that the studio will be releasing the massive Blu-ray box set Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two the very same day, but it will only be available through Amazon.

James Spader has played a great deal of roles throughout his career from dramas to comedies to a mix of both. Some of The Blacklist actor’s most memorable roles have come in the past few years where he played Robert California as a possible replacement after Michael Scott on TV’s The Office. So while the show has been over for just a couple of years, what if his personality lived on in the form of Ultron, his title villain from the popular Marvel film, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
With a mash-up this humorous and obvious, it was only a matter of time before someone got the idea to combine the two, and now there is a video just for it. Check out the hilarious video here below.
Last night, Marvel and Disney held an event to celebrate the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and producer Jeremy Latchem were on site to help commemorate the moment as well as participate in Q & A where they talked about the film and the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Among the many questions that were asked, one was what happened to Captain Marvel. As some of you may know, director Joss Whedon originally wanted to have her and Spider-Man make an appearance in the film – albeit a cameo. It didn’t pan out as Whedon hoped, as Feige opted to tell a fully fleshed out story as a way to introduce the character into the MCU. And now he is talking about what happened. Check out what he had to say below.
Fans of Honest Trailers can rest easy, the day we’ve waited for is here. It’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Day!!! The dudes at Screen Junkies managed to do something even AAOU could not do… meet our overly high expectations! Narrator Jon Bailey once again sees into my soul and recites nearly everything I’ve said, complained, and whined about since Marvel started its “Cinematic Universe” back in 2008 with the original Ironman.
