You know picking out my favorite movies is always hard for me, because I just LOVE movies! But there were defiantly a few that stood out to me this year and of course they are very different!
* American Sniper
Technically I guess this came out last December but Matt and I didn’t see this until January and we loved it. I thought that this is Bradley Coopers best movie to date and it really spoke to us. I had already read Chris Kyle’s book so seeing this come alive on screen was great for me.
I just love this whole series, actually I prefer the movies to the books on this one. I think they have done such a great job and this movie I can watch over and over and over…. a real sign I loved it!
* Magic Mike XXL
I know, I know and I swear I didn’t pick it because of my mild obsession with Channing. I picked this because after how awful the first one was this was a complete surprise! This movie was NON-stop FUN! I left the theater wanting to bust a move and watch it again. This movie will make you smile!
* The Woman in Gold
If you have not seen this movie please do so NOW! This wasn’t big at the box office but this was amazing. This is a true story about one woman family in Austria and how the Nazi’s stealing all their possessions shaped them. This will make you smile and you will learn something all while falling in love with this movie!
Talk about another surprise! We went to see this because of Kurt Sutter, whom we love. (He did Sons of Anarchy) This movie isn’t just about boxing, this movie has heart and we loved loved it. This is actually my favorite movie of the year.
* The Martian
And of course this movie, this was the “smartest” movie I have seen and you will weirdly think you are watching a true story…. it is that good! Can’t wait until this is out OnDemand!
What were your favorites this year?????
