It’s been a good year for fans of science fiction on the large and small screens, aside from the death of Leonard Nimoy, of course. It was a good year for movies in particular from the return of beloved franchises like Star Wars and Mad Max to new hits like The Martian and Ex Machina.

I've made lists of my favorites, my least favorites, and my "okays" in movies released in 2015. They're in three separate lists: best good movies, worst bad movies, and most mediocre mediocre movies -- all in my opinion, of course!
I spent a lot of time at the movies this year, but I didn't see everything, so please feel free to give your recommendations in the comments for anything I missed (or to offer your rebuttal to my rankings). I've limited myself to movies that I reviewed on the blog, so while Kung Fury was an insanely hilarious homage to the 1980's, Jurassic World was a lot of fun, Pixels was one of the worst movies ever made, I'm not including them. I'm not discussing Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was fun) or other comic book movies (seriously, Ant Man? Another Fantastic Four?). I don't really like superheroes, and even if I did, the whole comic book movie genre has been completely over-saturated in recent years and is well covered elsewhere by almost every other nerd on the internet.
And now to the movies!
