2019 was a good year at the movies. Sure, 2019 brought us a handful of movies that I’ll surely revisit in the near future, but I honestly feel like it was a letdown year. But still, there were some great movies that came out in 2019. We experienced movies that acted like love letters to Hollywood. We experienced movies from a streaming service that turned in arguably more quality movies than any movie studio (their quantity also outweighed everyone else). We experienced movies that made Film Twitter mad. And finally, we experienced more movies that created all sorts of emotions, which continued to help us, the moviegoers, escape reality. These experiences are a part of why we love movies so much, and that is why we should always talk about the best of the best every year. Talk about the ones that deserve the attention. Ones that you may have not heard about that absolutely deserve your time (and money).
It is finally the most wonderful time of the year everyone! The Oscars are fast approaching and 2019 was a marvelous year for movies, so predicting the winners isn’t easy this time around. You never know what could happen, especially with divisive movies such as Joker getting an impressive 11 nominations. Below is a list of who I think will win in each category and who could possibly sneak in and steal the award. Read more
Another year of movies has came and went. 2019 was a great year at the cinema, arguably the best we’ve had in years.

Honorable mentions will be listed after the list is complete. Read more
If you thought Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk was intense, director Sam Mendes’ 1917 is here to say, “Hold my beer.” That’s not a diss to Dunkirk, which was one of the best movies of 2017. But after witnessing another staggering war epic in the case of 1917, it feels like it’s in a league of its own. This largely is due to 1917 playing out like a one-shot movie. If you’re not familiar with that term, a one-shot movie is “a full-length movie filmed in one long take by a single camera, or manufactured to give the impression it was” (according to Wikipedia). And thanks to a combination of other impressive achievements that come together on the big screen, 1917 is not only filmmaking at its best, but it’s also the best movie of 2019, period.
2019 hasn’t been the strongest year for movies. There have been some fantastic movies to hit the big screen, but at the same time there have been several disappointments and forgettable flicks to come out. Not every year can be stellar, but luckily 2019 still have several months to make up for it. The back half of the year is stacked. Let’s take a look at 10 movies coming out in the next 4 months that everyone should be excited for. Read more
