2015 Favorites: Movies + Music

Posted in creative

Let’s talk about entertainment… 2015 was a pretty great year.

2015 Favorites: Movies, Albums, Etc | heartnatured

Avengers: Age of Ultron – I’m a Marvel nerd, so even if it can be a little far-fetched, I’m a big fan. I also find the character dynamics of the Avengers hilarious. Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, all fabulous.

Inside Out – I hope everyone saw this movie. It was clever, funny, sweet, and had a great message. Disney outdid themselves with this story — so innovative.

Cinderella – A classic. I enjoyed every thing about this movie – the costumes, the characters, the message.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – J and I up and decided to see this at 10pm the other night. In our comfy sweatpants, with candy in our pockets, we ventured back into the world of Star Wars. It definitely lived up to everyone’s hype, I thought it was great. We decided the goal must have been to be a ‘connector’ of sorts; with the classic characters and a bit of nostalgia in storytelling. I’m interested to see what kind of story the next two will tell.

Brave New World – I wrote about it here. The combination of a great voice with challenging and powerful lyrics makes this one of my favorites.

Neon Steeple – David Crowder is an unique experience, I think. A mix of folk music and rock and hymns.

Lauren DaigleI was late to the Daigle party, but happy I finally stumbled upon it. Her album is one of those where you could leave it on shuffle because you like every single song. I think her song ‘First’ is played on the radio a lot.

Psalms II – Shane & Shane has always been a sweet favorite of mine. They are authentic, talented, and worship the Lord with simplicity. This most recent album is definitely my favorite, I think (and they have a lot of albums so that’s saying quite a bit).

I’d love to hear what your favorite movies and music from 2015 are!

    Ahhh, I LOVED Inside Out! The idea for the movie was actually from a professor at the University of Minnesota, so I have a lot of extra love for it :)

    I really enjoyed listening to Lauren Daigle this year too. Her voice is so unique.

      So cool, Rachel – I didn’t know where the idea originated. I want to tell everyone to watch it, haha.

    I personally love David Crowder Band and I love he made your list! I’ll have to check out his new album :) Also, I just saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens this past weekend and absolutely loved it. I’m a huge fan of the original trilogy (Episode IV, V, and VI). So, it was great seeing what the future holds for my favorite characters. Thanks for sharing! Also, be sure to check out my social media to see your posts shared with my readers ;)

    The new Cinderella movie quickly became an instant favorite! So beautiful in so many ways, and that actress was the BEST Cinderella! And Inside Out was definitely the best Pixar movie!
