Let’s talk about entertainment… 2015 was a pretty great year.
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 Daigle – I 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!
