2015 has been a grand reminder about what makes the movies so special. This year, we were transported to a post-apocalyptic hellscape where it turned out girls ran the world. We went inside the mind of an 11 year old and discovered that sadness is just as vital as joy. We lifted off to Mars to spend time with the funniest astronaut since Buzz Aldrin. And we traveled back to the 1950s to witness the swirling romance between two exsquisite women. Yes, the movies are awesome, and in 2015, these were the awesome-est.
