POSTED BY Mohammad Salman Zaka, UPDATED ON March 25th, 2023


7. Room

A mother creates an entire world for her 5 years old son inside a 10 by 10 feet room. Based on Emma Donoghue’s novel, Room focuses on the post-traumatic effects of 7 years of captivity on a mother and her son, who thinks the room is the complete world.

Brie Larson gives an impeccable performance as a protective, loving mother who finds it hard to adjust to the new world and her will to survive in the form of her child slowly weakens as the child grows older.


6. Mad Max: Fury Road

George Miller is back with the fourth installment in the Mad Max franchise after a 3-decade gap. Showing a post-apocalyptic world and depleting resources where even water is referred to as aqua-cola, a tyrannical ruler faces a rebellious Furiosa (the charming fashion model and actress Charlize Theron) aided by a battle-hardened Mad Max (Tom Hardy).

It’s a fast-paced action thriller that has done surprisingly better than its previous installments.


5. Spotlight

The Hulk star, Mark Ruffalo, plays a reporter in a team of Boston Globe, called the spotlight. Working on a child abuse allegation case against a priest, the team uncovers a scandal that shocks everyone and puts the church to shame.

It is based on a true story about the Roman Catholic Church that happened in 2001.


4. Brooklyn

An adaptation of Colm Toibin’s novel of the same name, Brooklyn is about a young Irish girl in the 1950s and her heart’s struggle. Living in America, she gets close to a decent Italian guy but when she is called back home, there is another guy her heart calls out to.

Director John Crowley and Saoirse Ronan, who plays the Irish girl, have done a commendable job to reconstruct Toibin’s beautifully crafted words in an on-screen display.


3. Creed

Rocky is arguably the best boxing movie ever made. Even through the screen, Rocky gave us goosebumps whenever he put on those gloves for a fight.

Technically a sequel to the Rocky series, Creed shows Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) becoming a trainer, and under his mentorship is his ex-rival and best friend, Apollo Creed’s son.


2. Anomalisa

Written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, Anomalisa is an adult stop-motion animated comedy-drama. The genre might be a comedy but the premise behind the movie is a serious one.

Kaufman’s latest venture is about an author, Michael Stone, on a one-night trip to Cincinnati. Michael’s disconnection from the world is subtly shown by the similar face and same voice of every character but one, Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who is his Anomalisa.


1. Inside Out

Pixar Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have come together to produce one of their best and most creative works to date. Literally, a projection of a young girl in Riley’s mind, the characters of the movie are her emotions – Joy, Sorrow, Anger, Fear, and Disgust.

It’s the representation of little things like the train for thought process, little balls labeled with emotions like memories, and the control room that are simple and yet so accurate that the viewer can relate with Riley. Irrespective of your age, Inside Out, will get to you and make you feel through Riley’s emotions. It’s definitely one of the must-see movies of 2015 for everyone.
