It’s getting to be that time of year once again when people look back at what came before and decide to make lists about it.
Yep, we’re talking “Best Movie” lists of 2019!
First up, we have Dana Stevens at Slate.com offering this take…
Oh yeah, we’re about to enter a new Decade! Why not add that?
And looking over the list I have to say… I haven’t seen a single one of the films listed. Neither for the year of Decade!
I do have the movie Us recorded, though, and I do intend to see it eventually, so at least there’s that…
Kristen Acuna at theinsider.com offers this list:
Once again, I’ve seen… none of ’em. There’s Us here, as well as critical and commercial hits The Joker, Avengers: Endgame, The Lighthouse, Parasite. I have to admit, I’m curious to see all these films and even have Endgame in my digital collection.
Perhaps I will see some of these in time?
The Irishman is also finding its way to lists like these but, I have to be dead honest: I’m not interested in seeing this film, despite the Scorcese/DeNiro/Pacino/Pesci combo. Four hours of movie based on what is likely a totally fabricated story? I dunno.
Finally, Vulture.com offers three of their critics’ Top 10 lists…
Another intriguing batch of films, though these feel more “high brow” than some of the other lists.
Anyway, if you’ve seen more than I have (I’ve seen none, sadly!), I hope you find/found them good, and if you’re intrigued by some of the rest, give ’em a try.
If I had the free time, I would too!
