List Criteria: Films released (or wide-released) in the US during 2015

This list of the best movies of 2015 includes all major releases as well as critically acclaimed independent films in order to rank the greatest films of 2015 and to find out which you think is the best movie of the year. It seems like each year, Hollywood tries to top itself with new movies, eagerly anticipate sequels, and reboots of old favorites. And 2015 is no exception!

Blockbuster films like American Sniper, Fifty Shades of Grey, and Kingsman: The Secret Service are included in this list along with every major movie release of 2015. From dramas and romantic comedies, to thrillers, sci-fi epics, and even documentaries, the best films of 2015 run the gamut and there's plenty of entertainment to be had, no matter what kind of movies you like!

Upvote the movies you think are the best films of 2015 and downvote the ones you think shouldn't have even been released in the first place. Keep checking back throughout the year as we'll continue to update this list with the latest releases and biggest films to determine the best movie of 2015.
