Even though we’re only half way through the year, 2015 has been a very good year for movies. We’ve had the incredible Jurassic World and even more incredible Mad Max: Fury Road, Pixar’s return to greatness with Inside Out, heavy drama with Fury, Nightcrawler and all the other Oscar nominees, plus sequels aplenty with Pitch Perfect 2, Fast and Furious 7 and Terminator Genysis. And those are only the ones that have stuck out for me, there have been plenty more.
So far, my favourite of 2015 has to be Kingsman: The Secret Service. I had heard nothing about it before I read Kervyn’s review, and even then I just skimmed it beforehand. So when I went to watch it, it took me completely by surprise. It was utterly mad, with balls-to-the-wall action and a tongue-in-cheek story that laughed in the face of the tropes that birthed it, and then turned the insanity up to 11.
So if you had to choose, what’s your favourite movie of 2015 so far?
