Top 5 Best Movies of 2015 UK

  1. Birdman: This fantastic satire on the movie business is hilarious, while also poignant and possibly even tragic at the same time. Its fluid direction is also something to be seen to be believed. On top of that, this art film doesn’t feel pretentious at any point, giving both sides to the argument in the artistic war it is representing. My pick for best movie of 2015.
     
  2. Inside Out: No movie has moved me in so many directions as this one. This astonishingly good movie finds a way of perfectly exploring the idea of essential sadness and give a non – condescending explanation of the way people feel. Pixar is at its best.
     
  3. Legend: Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy play the Kray twins. This superb, multi – award winning double performance is worth the price of admission alone, on top of the chance to see an excellent British version of ‘Goodfellas’.
     
  4. Whiplash: A bizarre and terrifying movie. If you have ever been scared of a teacher this movie will cut right into you. Nothing but terrific performances, writing and a rhythm as energetic as the music that is played within.
     
  5. Macbeth: Shakespeare’s tragedy is once again brought to the big screen. While it does not feel traditionally Shakespearean, this is the first time this play has hit me this hard. Fassbender and Cottilard are perfect in the forms of Macbeth and his diabolical wife.

Top 5 Worst Movies of 2015

  1. Fifty Shades of Grey: Universal hopped on the bandwagon of an abominable book that was only made popular through word of mouth. The classy release date of Valentine’s Weekend did nothing for the film that made most viewers feel uneasy, awkward and that they had wasted their money. The more we talk about this property, the more it spreads like a fungal infection. That’s why I’m stopping right now.
     
  2. The Wedding Ringer: A comedy in which I did not laugh or feel good once. Kevin Hart failed to make this movie a success with one too many sexist lines. Here’s to hoping he can do well in something in the not too distant future.
     
  3. Jupiter Ascending: The line “Does any part of you want to bite me?” can make you feel like you had watched something else. It does however, have the potential to become one of those “so bad it’s good” movies. I really hope so.
     
  4. Taken 3: The third and hopefully final, Taken movie. Said to have been inspired by “The Fugitive”, Liam Neeson proves that he should follow in the steps of De Niro and take a break from lead acting
     
  5. Chappie: The film that disappointed me the most. The Director of “District 9” and “Elysium”, gives us a movie with a meandering plot and characters who don’t make sense.
