2015 was a great year for movies. Audiences around the world were treated to everything from a new Mad Max, to the return of Star Wars and dinosaurs in Jurassic World. Here are my top 10 films of 2015:

10. Trainwreck

Trainwreck PosterAmy Schumer was fantastic in this hilarious film.

Even funnier was WWE wrestler John Cena, even if he was only in the film for about 10 minutes. The film catapulted Schumer from Comedy Central star to legit film star.

146: ‘The Hateful Eight’ Box Office Report (12/25 – 12/27)
Dec 2015 29

146 hateful eight posterWe’re down to three this week, but we soldier on.

Star Wars still rules the land, but surprisingly other movies made money too. Go figure. Hollywood managed to sneak out a new Will Ferrell movie. It was news to us, but based on the box office it wasn’t news to America.

All this plus Joe goes on a wrestling tangent that we didn’t edit out (hey, it’s Christmas) and Tom gives us quick reviews of Concussion and The Big Short.

Movie Review: ‘The Hateful Eight’ Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins
Dec 2015 25

The Hateful 8 Poster LargeThe holiday season not only brought the return of Star Wars, but also the return of Quentin Tarantino for film buffs. The director’s latest – and his greatest film to date – The Hateful Eight is an experience unlike anything you’re likely to have in movie theaters this year or anytime soon.

Beautifully filmed in 70-millimeter, the move engages audiences from the very beginning of this three-hour spaghetti western. Watching Tarantino’s latest film is like watching a master at work. He uses beautiful cinematography in the mountains of Wyoming, but also dishes out more fake blood than I’ve ever seen before.

Clocking in at just over three hours with an overture and an intermission, The Hateful Eight is a western “who done it,” featuring top notch acting. With standout performances from Samuel L. Jackson as Maj. Marquis Warren, and Kurt Russell (doing his best John Wayne imitation as John Ruth), the audience gets their moneys worth.
