Films watched in 2019

Recommended Posts

Black Christmas was good, certainly an improvement on the 2006 remake. Not a classic but different to some teen horror films. Another good performance from Imogen Poots.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - I won’t say much other than I enjoyed it, thought it was a fitting end to the Disney sequel trilogy and was definitely better than The Last Jedi. There are a few weird things but I’m gonna let you all make up your own minds.

That's About my summary too, yes. And I would have liked some things explained, but that's me.

And of Course may that Person who found it funny to yell the spoiler from doom through the theatre forever rott in hell.

I've Always wondered how fast a lynch mob can form. VERY fast.

Solo: A Star Wars Story.  I consider myself unbiased when it comes to the SW stories as I enjoy watching them but it's not my fandom so I'm not into the lore of the universe.  I thought it was a middling film, not one of the best but not the worst though it was quite predictable in places (though in their defense they did say some of that would happen in the film), there were some silly plot errors and I found the fact that the film is all about this super rare and valuable fuel that seems to be so lightly guarded when the Empire has the resources that it does was silly.  Also the reveal of how Han got his full name was a bit 'that's all you could come up with?'

I'd give it about a 2.3 out of five and will probably never watch it again.

You should send this to Disney. It’s probably the best write up Solo has gotten!

Actually putting it in writing has made me reconsider and the whole super rare fuel thing was stupid.

Oi, don't let Ron put the fluence on you, Solo is a perfectly mediocre film.

Star Wars - Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker was amazing. Sure it wasn't as good as some of the Star Wars, better than the The Last Jedi, but not as good  as The Force Awakens or Rouge One. It was great to see all the characters again and a good end to the new trilogy (although I'm sure there will be more :D).

For me, 2019 has not been a vintage year it was pretty slow up till "End Game". 

Cats ( wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be)it was my 43rd and last film of this year.

For me my Top 5 films are in no particular order:

The Joker

The Irishman ( De Niro and Scorsese best to their very best)

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood( A Tarantino masterpiece)

John Wick 3 

Aladdin 

Giant Turkey's of the year which I thought were horrendous.

 4) Terminator Dark Fate ( a franchise hopefully now put out of its misery)

3)   X-Men Dark Phoenix 

2)   Godzilla King of the Monsters

1)   Hellboy ( which was hell to watch)

 Next year looks to be amazing with "TeneT" the standout film for me

Happy New Year everyone

I have watched nearly 200 films this year and gave up posting them here for the most part. To save myself hours of work I decided I would keep my rankings only to films on their first release in 2019 that I saw at the cinema. There are plenty of other films I saw in a cinema or were released this year that I saw at home, but I'm just keeping this simple.

Scrooge (1951)

After the BBC's predictably "woke" offering I thought I'd end the year with a more traditional (better) version of the story.

As good as Guy Pearce was, you can't beat Alastair Sim's portrayal of Scrooge.

I think Sir Michael Caine would have something to say about that!
