In the order I saw them in. ⭐️ = favorites ✌️= saw them twice
  1. American Sniper
    C5805fbf 05d5 4c80 843f f18914264560
    Read the book. Had to see the movie. It definitely does show a side of military life that most don't see. Pretty good.
  2. Selma
    1108b4a4 4f07 4503 8207 ade95bed8868
    POWERFUL. And if the Common and John Legend song didn't bring a tear to your eye...are you human?
  3. Kingsman
    A03c2738 1ae0 4677 a5b5 c228e08d7272
    Way better than it had any reason to be. Super entertaining.
  4. The Wedding Ringer
    70f963dd e538 4695 88a7 63b648ad3cd9
    Eh. Not great. Maybe a redbox-er. Definitely not worth nighttime theater money.
  5. The DUFF ⭐️
    1ccc8dde f086 47c9 b528 cfed5f01dc27
    I totally loved this one. So much I went to the library and got the book. Loved that too even though it's basically a completely different story.
  6. Cinderella
    30faf7df 86e4 4049 a51f 4a92ffcf9b84
    This is so damn delightful. And screw gender equality and roles and all that, if you're a girl, it's IMPOSSIBLE to watch it and not want to wear the beautiful dress and twirl and dance forever. Have courage. Be kind.
  7. Furious 7 ⭐️✌️
    Dac10d17 47f1 47a4 b6eb b60aa54c810a
    I have been a sucker for the Furious movies since the original. And Paul Walker's death hit me WAY harder than I ever expected. So, I was a mess at the end but the whole movie was fantastic, in the classic ridiculousness that is the Furious way. Plus, everything is better with a Statham. And the stunts and chase scenes and Dubai. So good.
  8. Avengers: Age of Ultron ⭐️✌
    56d37240 8677 43eb bb7d 5ebb32fd9440
    Any movie that opens with Captain America yelling "Language!" is an automatic winner in my heart. Great fights. Amazingly good CGI. Hawkeye actually acknowledging his uselessness (and making him even more endearing). It was def long and maybe I'm just a Marvel sucker but I enjoyed it very much.
  9. Pitch Perfect 2
    F71873e2 2df5 4633 a02e 8c1330564db7
    Chick power blah blah blah. What made the first one so great was that it was wholly original and unexpected. This tried too hard. Don't get me wrong, definitely had its moments, the Green Bay Packers cameo was amazeballs. But the first is far superior.
  10. Tomorrowland
    C271d70b 4845 4698 b38d 4ac40b0dcada
    Wholly original. Female lead. Dreams. Hope. Good things. By no means is it perfect but definitely enjoyable and loved the message.
  11. SPY ⭐️
    D1f3d064 7679 403a 9139 ea821c49e9be
    I laughed so damn hard in the theater it may have been embarrassing. The world needs more funny Statham. And Melissa McCarthy is a wonder to behold, as per usual. Good times.
  12. Inside Out ✌️
    00769278 7aff 4728 8a4d cdc3df8542b8
    First time I watched it was like "eh, not bad." Second time, tears and appreciation. Bing Bong = magic. Bravo again, Pixar.
  13. Black Mass
    390beafa 94c2 4afb 80f5 d32ef6189281
    I am not a big Depp fan but the Boston crime movie genre is among my favorites. This one is not great. Felt like a wasted effort from so many good actors.
  14. Jurassic World ⭐️
    559920ff 446e 4df2 b042 937bf6a75334
    Perfect mix of nostalgia and brand new-ness. Super enjoyable!
  15. Ant-Man
    9d3486f0 2efb 43b9 bc8e 8bb06041e7d1
    Like 40 times better than I thought it was going to be. Maybe I'm a sucker for Paul Rudd (who is fantastic in this) or a sucker for San Francisco movies or just that it was fun and funny but really enjoyed this one.
  16. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
    D7d0b3fd 7568 464b a061 311e9092009f
    I've seen every M:i movie in theater. I love them unashamedly. Even the 2nd one. Hell, I owned that soundtrack on cd. So, yup, enjoyed this one too. Love that each one seems to be its own thing and each director puts his special touch on it. Love or hate him, Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise and he is at his best (lately) when he is Ethan Hunt. Also, more Simon Pegg all the time.
  17. The Martian ⭐️✌️
    7b3fba39 0e3c 429a 8fb5 41a07b6818b8
    Most fun and moving and hopeful and great movie. and actually pretty true to the book. A rarity. I've been in love with Matt Damon for a veeeerrrrry long time but I think even if I wasn't this would still be one of my favoritest films of the year. If you haven't read the book yet, do it. If you haven't seen the movie yet, do it. Will restore your hope in humanity and the future.
  18. The Intern
    41cd2fd4 b344 4c50 a65d 7fb9924760f3
    Nothing super special but it was pretty enjoyable. And DeNiro has never been more endearing.
  19. Spectre
    E5f61e3c 4b3b 4686 8ef2 b543624d09f3
    James. Motherloving. Bond. Not the best in the Daniel Craig era (that'd be Skyfall) but not bad. Plus, I LOVE that they aren't afraid of letting him age a bit (except for that whole younger gal thing) and no one wears a suit quite as well as Janes Bond.
  20. Mockingjay: Part 2 ⭐️✌️
    8b0cb464 174d 482c a5d9 78bb8ec41b74
    I LOVE the books and when they announced that they were splitting Mockingjay into 2 films I was like "ugh" until I decided that there was only one place they could split it and I would be satisfied. They ended the first in that place. So I had high hopes for this one. And they delivered. It was as dark as the book, which was brave and appreciated.
  21. Star Wars: The Force Awakens ⭐️✌️
    1d1d59db fc25 43b0 b6b2 1c37e6425d08
    I think it's been well established that I enjoyed this one, even with the unrealistic expectations I had for it. Paid homage to the old whilst still bringing a new spin. In love with the new trio of heroes. Bravo, JJ Abrams.
  22. Spotlight ⭐️
    C079c7e6 8fcc 45ab b0e1 a88f18f7244d
    Such a well done film. Superb acting. Well written. Nicely shot. Invested the whole time.
  23. Sisters ⭐️
    A02e0b3e 9146 4bfa 820d b5422b09a197
    Tina Fey cussing is my new spirit animal. Laughed so hard on so many levels. Tina and Amy 4eva.
