Justin Carreiro’s Top 10 Movies of 2015
If you’re a ‘90s kid like me, Goosebumps was the book to read and the TV series to watch. Since the book series has been adapted to one overall movie, it combines all of the elements fans love. There are plenty of references and characters from the book series for fans to embrace the heartwarming feeling, as well as a good plot for new fans to enjoy.
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
Explosions! Superheroes! Expanded universe! There are a lot of great things for fans — Marvel or not — to enjoy in this flick.
- Inside Out
Inside Out is a beautiful and touching film. The tears are real.
Spy features plenty of laughs and non-stop comedy gold from Melissa McCarthy. There needs to be a sequel to showcase more of her great one-liners.
- The Final Girls
A woefully underrated and unseen horror movie, The Final Girls is a cheeky parody and gem for any horror movie fan. Not since Scream or The Cabin in the Woods has horror utilized the joke and concept of the “Final Girl” trope.
- Paper Towns
Two words: Cara Delevingne!
- Jurassic World
One word: dinosaurs! (I promise I will stop doing this.)
James Bond’s latest adventure caps off the ending to a great story. While the theme song for SPECTRE isn’t as great as Skyfall, the rest of the film had some shining moments, like the return of the cast, the weapon-heavy 007 car and the entirety of the opening scene.
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The force is strong with this film, and the return to the galaxy did not disappoint. After three, let’s say, debatable prequel films, it’s nice to see that the next sequel has learned from their lessons. Besides, all the new characters are a pleasant addition to the Star Wars universe.
- Mad Max: Fury Road
Everything about this movie is epic! From the set designs to the character development and the cinematography, it all comes together as a masterpiece. As someone who went into the film a little unsure (I mean, it’s another post-apocalyptic movie and a cheesy Mad Max film,) all of my hesitations were quickly thrown out the door by Furiosa’s mechanical arm. She is a strong, powerful character and Mad Max: Fury Road is a beautiful film.
