The Top Movies of 2015, According to Matt

2015 Header

It’s been a good year for film. There’s not really any other way to say it. I saw 60 odd films this year, far fewer in theatres but far more at home than last year, and of those I remember the majority being good!

There are a whole bunch of movies I haven’t seen yet: Anomalisa, Duke of Burgundy, Diary of a Teenage Girl, Carol, Son of Saul, Bridge of Spies, The Look of Silence, Green Room, and so many others. Bone Tomahawk, one I’ve been particularly looking forward to, isn’t even out in Canada yet.

Films that are fantastic but didn’t quite mke the list include Trainwreck, Ant-Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Brooklyn, It Follows, The Martian, The Hateful 8 and (again) so many others. In the end it was tough to narrow it down to just ten films because while it was way to choose my top three, choosing only seven more proved pretty tough. There were a lot of great movies in 2015.

For the last several years I’ve also put together a worst-of list but this year I decided not to do that. I know some people look forward to it but I’ve decided to focus on the positive rather than the negative despite the latter being the bigger draw on the web. And besides, we all know that Pixels was the worst film of the year by a country mile.

So what did make the top list? I’m glad you asked.

Happy New Year! As you may have noticed, we had a quiet second half of the year here at Awesome Friday, but that’s not to say we weren’t busy. It’s the opposite, actually; between work, and kids, and writing an entire bloody book in November, I’ve barely had time to indulge in my twin pleasures of games and movies, let alone write about them. Looking back over the year, there are a number of titles that I wish I’d had the chance to watch and play, but I also discovered I engaged with enough entertainment to put together a list.

So, here is it: my Best Of 2015.

I was already looking forward to this movie but this new trailer has kicked that up a notch. It looks like George Miller might be certifiably insane. The imagery here is stunning and shocking and balls to the wall weird and I, for one, love it. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer now.
