With the passing of 2015, as what he usually does at the end of every year, Stuckman revealed what he thinks are the best and worst movies of 2015. Check out what movies entertained Stuckman the least this year below.

Chris Stuckman's Top Ten Best Movies of 2015:
10. Sicario - "Sicario blew me away. This movie was realistically gritty and dark."
9. Spotlight - "Spotlight is one of the best written films of the year. This movie riveted me from scene one."
8. The Revenant - "The Revenant is one of the best looking films I've ever seen. The cinematography in this movie blew me away. Leo DiCaprio is again, fantastic."
7. The Martian - Ridley Scott's The Martian was such a return to form. It's Ridley Scott's best movie in years and it's one of Matt Damon's best performances of all time.
6. When Marnie Was There - "When Marnie Was There is a gorgeously beautiful haunting animated film about friendship, about being socially introverted, about discovering your family roots, about discovering who you are as a person and it floored me."
5. Bridge of Spies - "Bridge of Spies is my favorite Spielberg film since Munich. The movie was fun, it was dramatic, it was powerful, it was well-acted, and it said something very important that two opposing nations with two different views can get along."
4. The Hateful Eight - "I love the location of this movie. I love the feel of this movie. I love the dialogue of this movie. I love this entire film. For me, The Hateful Eight was like watching a movie that was released in the 1960s except with all the restrictions lifted out of it that would have been on a film released at that time."
3. Creed - "Creed may actually be my favorite in the entire franchise. This movie affected me emotionally. Sylvester Stallone gave the best performance honestly maybe in his entire career. And Michael B. Jordan was utterly terrific."
2. Mad Max: Fury Road - "Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the best action movies ever made. It was filled with practical effects, amazing stunt work, mind-blowing set pieces, and one of my favorite characters of the entire year. That's Furiosa played by Charlize Theron."
1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens - "This was the movie that I had the most fun watching in a theater this year. Star Wars: The Force Awakens did everything for me that I wanted it to do.

Honorable Mentions: The Gift, Inside Out, Steve Jobs, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Chris Stuckman's Top Ten Worst Movies of 2015
10. Taken 3 - "Why does this movie exists? It exists purely to be a trilogy."
9. Hitman: Agent 47 - "A feature-length commercial for Audi cars. The first one sucked and didn't do well so they decided to make the exact same film again with a different actor because they thought apparently if they did the exact same thing that failed first again, that for some reason it would be successful the second time. It wasn't."
8. Hot Pursuit - "If there was one word to describe Hot Pursuit, it would be annoying. It is without a doubt the most annoying film I sat through in this entire year. Reese Witherspoon dragging Sophia Vergara around. Witherspoon played a plucky and very persistent cop and Sophia Vergara was just Sophia Vergara. Oh my shoes, oh my dress, oh my boobs. That's the whole movie. I'm serious. And it really worked. I mean I was on the edge of my seat. Because I was half asleep and I almost fell out of my seat."
7. Jupiter Ascending - "This is a movie I'm actually sad to say is in this list because it was an attempt to make an original science fiction movie. They actually tried to make an original different sci-fi action movie. And man did they fail. It felt like you had to read a 10,000-page long dictionary to understand the plot. Jupiter Jones was a terrible hero. She didn't do anything. She had to be rescued every other scene by Channing Tatum who looked hilarious in wolf ears or something. This movie was so bad Tatum didn't even want to promote it."
6. Outcast - "The only thing this movie has going for it is an incredibly over-the-top Nicolas Cage performance that was awesome to see. And entertaining in a so bad it is good way. The rest of the movie was a poorly shot hyper-actively edited disgusting-looking movie with Hayden Christensen really trying to act and failing."
5. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension - "This movie was so bad I didn't even sit down and do a traditional review."
4. The Boy Next Door - "My gosh, I hated this movie. It was filled with Hollywood cliches."
3. Pixels - "Kevin James as the president of the United States! To all the people who told me that Pixels was actually a good movie, I'm glad you enjoyed it. I don't know what to say to that though."
2. Fantastic 4 - "Maybe for the first 40 minutes of this movie, it's just bad. It's not awful, but it's just bad. From the second the words "One year later" appear on screen, this movie turned into an absolute disaster. I mean it was terrible."
1. Fifty Shades of Grey - "It's not just the movie that I hated so much, it's the entire thing surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey. An author writing a Twilight fan fiction and then changing the names in certain locations to adapt it into her own fan fiction. Then that becoming a novel filled with grammatical errors and terrible writing and then that becoming a movie and me sitting in a theater with a bunch of middle-aged women who at times did moan."
