The Broke and the Bookish, home of the Top Ten Tuesday meme, had for their topic recently 2015 books you meant to read but didn’t. I’m actually pretty on top of book releases (there just aren’t that many new releases I want to keep track of) but movies are a completely different story. Some time last January, I actually put a bunch of movie release dates into my calendar for the entire year. And then…yeah. Well.
I went to the theater three times in 2015: Age of Adaline, Inside Out and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. All of them were excellent, so in that way I made good choices!
I saw on Home on DVD, and watched Jupiter Ascending and Cinderella on a plane…didn’t love any of them, so I guess it’s just as well I didn’t go to the theater for those. But that leaves quite a few still unknown quantities! So, top 2015 movies I haven’t seen…
By release date order:
- The Walk
- Victor Frankenstein
- The Martian
- The Jungle Book
- The Peanuts Movie
- Mockingjay 2 (…and 1, actually)
- The Good Dinosaur
Looks like I have some DVDs to track down! Have you seen any of these? Any I should rush out and watch, or any I’m better off not spending two hours of my life on? 🙂

I’m surprised you didn’t see the movie with Johnny Depp in it!
You might not want to spend your life on Tomorrowland. I found it disappointing. The previews looked so good.
And I just watched The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which was really good and funny. I recommend that one for your list.
Go see “Brooklyn.” You will love it. It’s up for Best Picture and Best Actress at the Oscars this year and is deserving of both awards – a really wonderful, old-fashioned film in the style of the greats from the 30’s and 40’s. I also really liked “Suffragette,” which was dark, but inspiring (also misleading in that it had only a cameo by the legendary Meryl Streep). You might also enjoy “Bridge of Spies” with the always dependable Tom Hanks. That film is, I believe, also nominated for Best Picture this year, but Mr. Hanks was passed over for Best Actor. It got a nod for Best Supporting Actor, though, and that was well-deserved.
Oh the Martian was soooo good! Even if you’ve read the book (possibly especially if) you will still really enjoy it, at least if that sort of movie is your cup of tea!
I enjoyed Mockingjay Part 1 and 2. A lot more than I thought I would considering it was based, I thought, on the weakest book of the trilogy and that it had succumbed to the trend of splitting the last book into two films.
