Best films of 2015: Mad Max - Fury Road

Ok it's 90 percent car chase but this is the best car chase film you'll watch this year. As well as all the awesome dakar rally style action and steampunk vehicles, there's actually a story to go with this Tom Hardy film where he doesn't say a great deal.

Best films of 2015: Jurassic World

Jurassic World was one of the big releases of the year and although it's not as good as the original it's worth a watch, unless you hate dinosaurs. What can you do with the story after four films? Well build a park on the site of the original and make the latest attraction a genetically modified giant. It's all plain sailing surely...

Like us, you're probably a sucker for a Marvel film and the latest Avengers movie was hard to ignore. It's heroes unite once again as they battle the Terminator-like Ultron (voiced by James Spader from The US Office). And Jarvis may well assume physical form!

Best films of 2015: The Martian

Space-themed films seem to be all the rage and this year's big one was The Martian following Interstellar from last year. Matt Damon plays the role of an astronaut left behind on a mission to Mars assumed dead. He is, of course, not dead otherwise there wouldn't be much of a story here. It's about how he can let Earth know and get back.

Best films of 2015: Maze Runner - The Scorch Trials

It might not have quite the same following compared to The Hunger Games but we're big fans of the Maze Runner films. After cracking the initial maze, the 'Gladers' are off into challenge number two involving a lot of sun and sand (no sea) and if you look hard enough you might see the crews from Mad Max cruising on the horizon.

Best films of 2015: Ant-Man

Another Marvel entry in this list for Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. It might not sound like the coolest super hero and anyone with an insect phobia might want to give this one a miss. However, being able to transform from full-size human to someone who can jump through a door lock provides some interesting scenarios and borrower style visuals.
