This year was when I saw the worst movie ever and maybe the best action movie of the last 20 years.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Viva practical effects! This movie rocked me. I thought the trailer was excellent--which normally sets the bar too high for a movie. I had the lowest of expectations going in, and I knew the troubled history of the movie (and also it took years of post-production--filming mostly wrapped in 2012). The wait was worth it. As others have said, it is a watershed moment for action movies. It seemed as if only 90 seconds of the movie was not action. I don't know how anyone could top this masterpiece. It is one of a kind.
This is the template for the 21st century popcorn movie. Small story, but huge action scenes.
Funny, great addition to the expanding comic universe.
What We Do in the Shadows
Great, original mockumentary about the vampire genre.
It was a good year for Mars (and Pluto)!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
How many times in your life do you get to review a Star Wars film? Well, hopefully it stays that way (and Disney handles the franchise properly). J.J. Abrams is an overrated director, and he had an impossible task, but he delivers the proper ingredients in the proper proportions.
