Ranked in order of enjoyability, not quality.

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and even though this movie was far from being perfect, I was thoroughly entertained.
2. Mad Max: Fury Road

Easily one of my favorite action movies of all time, let alone 2015.
3. The Big Short

Very interesting and well acted and the writing made it surprisingly not too hard to follow along.
4. The Hateful Eight

A good film, although as a big Quentin Tarantino fan, it was a slight disappointment. Most of the 2nd half I didn't enjoy much.
5. The Martian

Average film, there was not much I disliked about it, but not much I liked.
6. Jurassic World

Another average film, but I felt this movie was done slightly lazily. It was entertaining, but not much else.
7. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Very entertaining film, but absolutely nothing more than that. The rest was filled with cliches and silly dialogue, which was expected from a Marvel film.
8. The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

This movie was not as well made, or funny as the first Spongebob movie, but it still had its moments.
9. Far From the Madding Crowd

Not a fan of the genre and was bored the entire way through. Probably my fault for seeing this film.

Horrible/The Worst:

Terminator Genisys

From what I've seen so far, I'd say this would be my current Top 10 Favorite Films from 2015 (IMDb standard):

1) The Hateful Eight

Saw it three times already. Once at the theater. No film was able to entertain me as much as this one. It's the only film from 2015 I regularly keep quoting and keep rewatching scenes from. Totally worked for me.

2) Youth

I probably love it even more than Paolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty. So many great scenes. Intimate, yet grand!

3) Best of Enemies

Completely my kind of documentary. It has this kind of '60s/'70s stylistic bravura to it that I absolutely adore, but it never lets its style overshadow the depth of its content. I definitely recommend this to anyone who's somewhat interested in debating, politics, the evolution of TV or simply the male ego!

4) The Revenant

While I didn't like it as much as Birdman on a personal level, this is still probably the most impressive thing I've seen this year, filmmaking-wise. Some scenes are simply unbelievable. I'm so happy I watched this one at the theater. It was a glorious experience.

5) The Lobster

Highly original and stunningly looking film with one of the coolest concepts I've seen in a while. It's too bad its second half isn't quite as good as its very exciting first half, as it becomes a tiny bit more clichéd, but it never actually becomes disappointing at any moment. Great cinema.

6) Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This deserves to be so high on this personal favorite list, simply because of the feeling it gave me while watching it at the theater. Of course it wasn't perfect, but for a moment it felt like it was, right after the last shot. That's all I needed from this: to be an uncritical ten year old boy again for just a tiny moment. It delivered.

7) Mad Max: Fury Road

Probably the second most impressive thing I've seen this year, filmmaking-wise. Spectacular film!

8) Mistress America

An unpretentious, but genuinely witty and smart film filled with moments of hilarity and good drama. Baumbach is a talented guy.

9) Steve Jobs

I can't even describe how much I was enjoying this picture during most of its running time. It has a very attractive energetic feeling to it, the cinematography is absolutely stunning and it has some of the most intense dialogue scenes of the year. The reason why it's so "low" here is because I really didn't like the ending. I thought it wasn't really appropriate for this film and it didn't ring true to me at all. This could've been a lot higher on this list if I had liked the ending at least a little bit more.

10) Carol

I liked the tasteful filmmaking and the fantastic acting in Carol, but for some reason I still kind of felt emotionally alienated when I watched this at the theater. Perhaps it's because of the same reason that I liked but didn't love Todd Haynes' Far from Heaven as well: the dramatic concept of the whole film is too much on the nose and therefore, for me personally, overshadows the more subtle and moving moments in it. It's still a very delightful film that I very much respect and I can see why certain people love it so much.

Other films I've seen (not in any order):

Going Clear
The Martian
Ex Machina
Inside Out
The Night Before
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
Irrational Man

Worst 2015 film I've seen so far:


Not quite as weak as Quantum of Solace, but with all the exciting stuff that's happening, this is a terribly unexciting and forgettable film to sit through. It's time for a new Bond actor and a script that actually values the core of what the character used to be during his first few outings...


Here are 20 films from 2015 that I still REALLY would like to watch and that would definitely be able to change this current list tremendously:

Knight of Cups
Cemetery of Splendor
The Assassin
Queen of Earth
Bridge of Spies
Slow West
Son of Saul
De Palma
Le Tout Nouveau Testament
Listen to Me Marlon
The Big Short
The Diary of a Teenage Girl
