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.
Mad Max: Fury Road came charging into theaters with heart-stopping chrome action, guns blazing, and a beautiful rocking soundtrack. Since its release, the film has been earning huge praise from fans and critics alike, it leads the Critics Choice Awards with 13 nominations, and has been nominated for two Golden Globes.
While Fury Road has been released on home entertainment platforms, those itching to see it in a theatrical format may get their chance, as there are talks of getting the film back into theaters, but with one very exciting catch. According to director George Miller, there is a chance that the film could be seen in black and white. Check out what Miller had to say below.
Following Mad Max: Fury Road crushing the box office with a resounding global $374.7 million, Warner Bros. was not surprisingly quick to announce that a sequel was on its way. It’s a normal reaction to a giant success such as Fury Road, but it’s going to get better as director George Miller has confirmed that there will not be one, but two Mad Max sequels in the near future. More on the story below.
In addition to director George Miller’s long-awaited return to the movie series he created, Mad Max: Fury Road, releasing on home video this week, the video game from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios set in that same world and simply titled Mad Max has also been released.
For the game’s release a launch trailer has also been released and can be seen below.
