MY FAVORITE FILMS OF 2015

Anything that qualifies for the oscars this year, basically. I didn't see Joy. Looks terrible.
  1. Honorable mentions
    The Gift, Slow West, The Martian, The Overnight, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mississippi Grind, Anomalisa, Inside Out
  2. 10. EX-MACHINA
    Oscar Isaac, who is now a superstar, is great in this movie. Very different.
  3. 9. TRAINWRECK
    Schumer's humor is a little repetitive, but she's really funny. Bill Hader is spectacular, and I've always loved Apatow's movies.
  4. 8. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
    2 hours of adrenaline. If you didn't see it in theaters it probably won't be as good on your tv, but it's really fun and still worth watching.
  5. 7. DANNY COLLINS
    Not talked about enough. His is the best Pacino has been in a very long time, and I really like Bobby Cannavale. (Also with Patrick Stewart and Annette Bening, who are always great.)
  6. 6. SICARIO
    This might actually be higher, but it came out too early that it got overshadowed. Benicio del Toro is menacing, and dominates without ever raising his voice.
  7. 5. THE BIG SHORT
    This cast, and even more so the directing (Adam McKay) make even the housing market collapse enjoyable. It's very slick, and has 4 great actors. (Bale, Gosling, Carell, Pitt)
  8. 4. ROOM
    Tough to give a description without revealing major plot points, but it blew me away. The climax scene in this movie is as emotionally invested I've been in a scene in years.
  9. 3. CREED
    Creed! It's amazing. The best Rocky since 4, and Stallone is really great in it.
  10. 2. THE REVENANT
    I find it weird that Leo is going to finally win an Oscar for a film where he doesn't really talk much, after all the movies he's made where he is his usual charming self. Him and Hardy are fantastic though, and it's really well done.
  11. 1. SPOTLIGHT
    Everyone in this movie shines. It's a new era All The President's Men.
