2014-15 saw some pretty visually epic films hit the big screen, from the glory that was Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to the huge Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, San Andreas, The Reverent, In the Heart of the Sea, Avengers: Age of Ultron and more.  Alas, not all of them are nominated for their photoreal action shots, science fiction touches and/or hyper-realistic weather patterns.

In this video, edited by YouTube user Vic Rincon, all of the most visually thrilling flicks, i.e, those nominated for the Special Effects Oscar, are rolled into one giant mash-up of hype, action, drama, sci-fi brilliance and power; just to remind us all how incredibly important the artists are behind this element of filmmaking.

This year, the Academy Award nominees for Special effects are:
Mad Max: Fury Road 
Star Wars: The Force Awakens 
The Revenant 
The Martian 
Ex Machina 

Watch the clip below and bow.
