Just like with music, there are so many new films out there and just not enough time to watch them all. Although it’s amazing that it’s easier to find all sorts of movies with just the click of a button, it’s impossible to watch it all. But when not at a show or blasting my favorite records, most of my spare time is spent in the cinema trying to find the next great movie.
2019 provided no shortage of great movies, a lot of truly great films came out and all throughout the year. We are weeks away from the Academy Awards and it seems like there is no true lock for Best Picture yet, which suggests just how good the year was.
On Monday, we ran our worst films of the year, which is usually a much easier task than the making of this best of list. These were all films we loved, from the biggest of blockbusters to the smallest art-house releases. So many sites seem to favor one or the other and we hope that we played fair. A good movie is a good movie, no matter the budget or marketing team behind it.
Here are 40 of my favorite movies of 2019. Stay tuned for our best of the decade coming sometime very soon as well.
