The Best Films of 2015

The Best Films of 2015 of which I have seen, those that garnered two or more stars:

Captain Phillips
The Expendables 3
Under The Skin
Edge of Tomorrow
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Fault in our Stars
Mr Turner
The Imitation Game
Avengers: Age of Ultron
The Invisible Woman
Mad Max: Fury Road
Ant Man
It Follows

The best:             Mad Max: Fury Road, a rollercoaster that never lets you stop for breathe. Intelligent, exciting and original.

The worst:          Gone Girl, utter boredom set in when watching an I really couldn't have cared any less for the central characters, who were both vile. 

The biggest film: Jurassic World, just held on to the top spot after stiff competition from Star Wars; this was a surprise smash and has unlocked another franchise.

Most anticipated: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this had been building for about two years and under the helm of JJ Abrams, it became the most wanted film, going on to be one of the biggest and the quickest to reach $1 Billion worldwide.

Oscar Winner:   Birdman, I liked this, others I knew didn't; Michael Keaton gives a brilliant performance as a washed-up actor struggling with his superhero past. Very funny and very enjoyable.
