Box office winners worth revisiting too

By: Brennan Kohls

The year of 2015 was filled with reboots, sequels and countless other popular films, but a few of them stole the show. Here are our top five flick picks from 2015. 

Star Wars: Episode 7:

The Force Awakens: The highest grossing movie of 2015 was the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise, The Force Awakens, and it is easy to see why it raked in some much money. After the disappointing prequel trilogy to many Star Wars fans, Disney started the sequel trilogy with great success. In case you’re a part of the small percentage of people who have not seen it, the story is set 30 years after Return of the Jedi and follows two characters: Rey, a poor scavenger, and Finn, a former First Order stormtrooper, as they are caught in the battle between the evil sequel to the Empire, the First Order, and the Resistance, the sequel to the Rebel Alliance.

It is an action-packed and exciting movie that will leave any Star Wars, or action/sci-fi movie fan satisfied.

Jurassic World:

Set after the events of the Jurassic Park movies, a new park is built where the original stood. Everything is fine and dandy in Jurassic World, as kids get to see their favorite dinosaurs and scientists get to research them, but, of course, somebody thought it was a good idea to create a genetically modified stealthy killer dinosaur, and, of course, somebody left the gate unlocked.

Luckily for Jurassic World, Owen (Chris Pratt), a velociraptor trainer and researcher, is here to save the day. The movie is a visual masterpiece and has enough action to keep anyone interested.

Inside Out:

Everyone loves a hilarious animated movie, and this was no exception. In this movie, we follow a young girl named Riley and her emotions in the form of funny characters: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Bing Bong (Richard Kind), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling), as Riley is pulled from her Midwest life and placed in San Francisco.

If you are looking for a funny and light movie, look no further.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2:

This is an action-packed second part to the third installment of the popular book and movie series The Hunger Games. After sparking a rebellion and large war between the Capitol and the districts, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) leads her army against the evil President Snow.

This movie is guaranteed to keep you enticed throughout.

The Martian:

In a manned mission to Mars, an astronaut named Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is left behind as he was presumed dead after a large storm on the planet. He must survive alone more than 100 million miles away from earth. He must use wit and skill to survive on the barren planet until he can signal to earth that he is in fact still alive.

This movie will make you sit on the edge of your seat the entire time and leave you with the child-like fantasy of becoming an astronaut.
