Let's start 2016 off with a bang, Patrollers! This is the one we've been promising. We have our top five for 2015. The Toddster worked long and hard putting this list together. There should be a few for you to be interested in. Choose any of them for some late and great Christmas presents.
5. Max- We need a best friend. Even a dog who's job is to protect us. Max was a Marine dog trained by his handler Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell). The two were a very successful team being able to protect their fellow marines and to protect the innocent. When Kyle is killed during a raid, Max is left without a friend. Now that may not be a problem. The Marines decide to send Max to live with Kyle's family and to be in the care of his brother Justin (Josh Wiggins). Justin isn't without his own problems. Some people he's been working for want him to do something illegal. Can Max help do the right thing?
4. The Man From U.N.C.L.E- It's said "Better the enemy you know than the enemy you don't. The United States and Russia have constantly been enemies in the past. Now they'll have to put aside their differences if the World is to stay safe. So each side chooses Napoelan Solo (Henry Cavill) for the United States and Ilya Kuralakin (Armie Hammer) who works for the Russians . They both have their own methods of how things should get done. The Two partners now have to escort Gaby (Alicia Vikander) so they can find her Father who has the means of launching nuclear weapons. Can they pull it off to keep the World safe?
3. Terminator: Gensys- Sometimes there is a story behind the one you already know. The mission was to send Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to keep Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) safe for John Connor (Jason Clarke so he could lead the resistance to victory over Skynet. While Kyle was in the process of traveling back in time, something happened to John. Now all the things Kyle knows he's supposed to do has been changed. He's met by Sarah who's being protected by the "Guardian" (Arnold Swarzenegger). Kyle knows none of this was supposed to happen. To make matters even more complicated, John has found his way into the past but he been changed by Skynet somehow into something even more deadly. Can our heroic trio complete the mission to save the future?
2. Furious 7-When you fight someone, there may be someone who could come after you for revenge. Dominic Torretto (Vin Diesel), Brian O'Connor (Paul Walker), and the rest of their team risked everything to stop Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) so they could rescue Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Their lives are about to be put into danger one more time with the arrival of Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) who wants revenge for what happened to his brother. The only way to save themselves and stop Shaw is with the help of a mysterious figure from the CIA nicknamed "Mr. Nobody." (Kurt Russell). He has information they need but they have to go on an mission to rescue a beautiful hacker who can arm a device that can gives anyone the keys to the internet. Will Dom and the team be able to pull it off while staying one step ahead of Shaw?
And our Number #1 is:
1. Ant Man- There are always reasons someone would have to get redemption. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) wanted the wrong thing for the right reasons. When he learned the company he worked for was looking as their email accounts, Scott knew he had to put a stop to it. He did but it cost him 3 years in prison. Now he's out. He just wants to find a good job and be with his Daughter Cassie. Being out of prison isn't so easy for an ex-convict. Some friends tell him about a house that he could break into to steal some stuff. The house he goes after belongs to Dr. Henry Pym. What Scott doesn't know is Henry used to be the super hero "Ant Man." Henry wants to bring Scott in to help him keep his work safe. It seems his work is being sold to the highest bidder by his ex assistant Darren Cross (Corey Stoll). Now Henry needs Scott to become the Ant Man to stop this from happening. With the help of daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly), will Scott be able to pull this off?
