One thing we absolutely love here is movies! From blockbusters to tear-jerkers to chick flicks- we love ‘em all. Read on for our round-up of the top five blockbusting movies of 2015. As well as a look at some of the worst!
Top 5 Blockbusters of 2015
1.Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Despite not coming out until mid-December, this hotly anticipated Star Wars managed to top the UK and US Box Offices. Without giving too much away we meet the big names from the last trilogy (well the first trilogy- depending on how you look at it!) and there are enough plot twists and surprises to keep you going till the end. At the center of the story is Rey, a young woman who lives alone and appears to have no family. Along with Finn, a breakaway stormtrooper, they help save the galaxy from the new evil master- Kylo Ren.
The latest in the James Bond series and certainly one that doesn’t let you down. This is the last Bond film for Daniel Craig so enjoy him whilst you can. In Spectre, the story follows on directly from the Quantum Solace. Facts about Spectre include that it was one of the most expensive films ever made and THE most expensive Bond.
If a new Bond and a new Star Wars weren’t enough for one year, we were also treated to the newest addition to the Jurassic movie series since 2001. In Jurassic World, the park is up and running again but genetically modified dinosaurs spell disaster.
4.Avengers: Age of Ultron
A year doesn’t seem to pass without yet another Marvel movie, but if you love Marvel comics then it’s only good news for you. For the rest of us, it’s a bit of a bore. The Age of Ultron sees Robert Downey Junior and the rest of the Avengers re-join once again to save the world. So not much different from any other one then!
For fans of Despicable Me 1 and 2, or those with small children, this was surely a year highlight. The Minions went back in time to discover the back story of these cute little, ever servile creatures.
Worst 2015 Movies
It wasn’t all good news at the Box Office and spectacular flops include Taken: 3 which is a lesson in learning when a franchise should be put to rest. Equally disappointing was Vince Vaughan’s Unfinished Business which wasn’t even funny and the very lackluster Ted 2.
