iTunes Best of 2015 - Top 4 Movies on iTunes
Mad Max: Fury Road
Price: $19.99 Release Date: May 15, 2015 Director: George Miller
Editors called it one of the best action movies of this or any year as we can see all goods of a blockbuster are all included in this movie, like adrenaline-pumping chase scenes, eye-popping visuals, a despicable villain and a timeless hero, etc. Director George Miller, who also helmed the first three Mad Max mythology movies, presented us nonstop momentum and a new feminist hero while telling a story of profound social impact.
Inside Out (2015)
Price: $19.99 Release Date: June 19, 2015 Directors: Pete Docter, Ronnie del Carmen
According to editors' notes, Inside Out 2015 is one of Pixar's greatest, funniest and most moving achievements by creating an entirely original universe and imagining the complex day-to-day operations within the brain of an 11-year-old girl. Thanks to this year's finest voice performances, especially Amy Poehler as Joy and Phyllis Smith as Sadness, the five emotions of this movie were fully fleshed out to the audiences of every age.
Price: $14.99 Release Date: July 3, 2015 Director: Asif Kapadia
This is a vibrant portrait of 6-time Grammy winner Amy Winehouse's too-short life and career. Directed by Asif Kapadia, AMY tells the incredible story of Amy Winehouse in her own words. It focuses on assembling a rueful, bittersweet distillation of the real Winehouse: a bitingly funny, deeply sensitive young woman who only wanted to use her voice. Featuring extensive unseen archival footage and previously unheard tracks, the film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
Price: $14.99 Release Date: January 24, 2015 Director: Rick Famuyiwa
Written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa, Dope is mainly about a rollicking coming-of-age adventure about an ambitious high school senior through the streets of Inglewood, California, combines a riveting story and winning characters with timely commentary on race and opportunity. It's one of those films that sometimes we came across feeling so fresh, funny and energetic that we just want to tell everyone we know to drop what they are doing and watch it.
