Instead today I want to continue a tradition of this blog; my Top Ten Favorite Movies list. I obviously didn’t review a single goddamn movie this year but I watched more flicks in 2015 than I had in years. And what a year it was for movies! There were so many great films this past year that it was not unlike sensory overload for me. I wasn’t able to see every movie that was out there so this list only focuses on what I was able to see. So, any fans of Spotlight getting upset that it’s not on the list are going to have to calm themselves down.
I will say that I did see The Hateful Eight and, while I enjoyed the heck out of the flick, it just barely didn’t make the list. Let’s think of it as #11 or an Honorable Mention. I also saw Jurassic World this past summer. Spoiler Alert: it doesn’t make the list, though if you need a good sleep aid I would recommend it.
Beta’s Top Ten Movies after the jump.
|Beta Trivia: I rocked a flat-top as a baby|
It was awesome
#9: Sleeping With Other People
|Because "Sex Addiction" isn't a catchy title...|
Also Jason Mantzoukas and Andrea Savage pretty much single handily made this movie good enough to be on this list.
#8: Star Wars – The Force Awakens
|Pictured: A big fan of poetry. Probably|
#7: Steve Jobs
|Basically it's two hours of Fassbender being shitty to everyone|
|And lo, America suddenly forgot Micheal B. Jordan was in Fantastic Four|
#5: The Big Short
Haha, just kidding; everything is garbage!
#4: Inside Out
|Also, my exact feelings on the banks after seeing The Big Short|
Pixar had a second movie in 2015 but I didn’t see The Good Dinosaur. I don’t think most people saw The Good Dinosaur.
#3: Mad Max – Fury Road
|A two hour car chase and no one complained|
#2: Straight Outta Compton
|Compton is a popular setting in film this year...|
I just made myself sad.
#1: The Martian
|Based on Marvin the Martian's book "Earth Shattering Kaboom"|
With 2015 in the books we now turn to 2016. I can only hope that Hollywood can manage to churn out quality work for the next twelve months. That may be asking a lot, especially as we continuing moving forward in this era of reboot. We'll see.
