    Movies from 2019 worth watching - A retrospective

    an overview (incl. short comments) of movies from 2019 imo worth watching (may include earlier movies, whose scene bdrips/dvdrips/blurays got released in 2019) - afaik this is 'as good as it gets' this year



    action:

    Hunter Killer (2018) solid submarine action, many believability problems, usa & russia are working together here, for a change


    adventure:
    -

    animated:

    The Lion King (2019) best animated movie cgi this year, weak storytelling & voice-acting


    comedy:

    The Upside (2017) somewhat messy but watchable remake of a good french movie (which can be found in the 2013 retrospective list)


    drama:

    Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) watchable but not very convincing, especially regarding acting or stage performance
    Green Book (2018) occasionally funny, racial propaganda to the max, black cultured virtuoso gay boss vs christian italian simpleton bully mobster sellout servant, set in a fictional over-the-top racial discrimination scenario in usa
    Unplanned (2019) emotional lower budget drama that deals with the issue of legalized murder of unborn children (aka abortion), events based on a true story, this movie is an example of what hollywood and globalist mainstream media don't want you to see


    fantasy:

    Avengers: Endgame (2019) best cgi this year, weak storytelling


    fighting:
    -

    horror:
    -

    other: (documentaries)

    Free Solo (2018) extreme climbing, ~900 m ropeless, great scenery shots


    romance:
    -

    SF:
    -

    thriller:

    Joker (I) (2019) the most hyped-up movie this year, watch just to see a joke of the joker


    western:
    -

    retro/remastered/extended releases:

    3000 Miles to Graceland (2001) fun ride with Elvis(es), retro BluRay release
    Apocalypse Now (1979) lengthy well known war movie, theatrical/redux/final version available, retro remastered BluRay release
    Batman (1989) needs no introduction, retro remastered BluRay release

    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    I didn't watch much, from this year at least.

    Joker + Avengers were cool movies.

    I recently watched the Green mile+ wind river and liked them a lot.
    Also, crash (1996) was a really fascinating movie as well

    Said it before, will say it again: this list gets shorter each year

    The only 2019 movies I was looking forward to are Hollywood and Joker. Since the former isn't mentioned in this list, I guess there is no high-quality release yet, so I'll wait until then before watching both.

    Hollywood and Joker. Since the former isn't mentioned in this list, I guess there is no high-quality release yet
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 2019 1080p BluRay x264-SPARKS has been out over a month ago

    a new genre would be needed, something like 'hyped up failures' for it to enter the list

    some possibly attractive parts of the movies from illusive' list:

    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum - mindless killings one after another, as seen in parts 1 & 2
    Angel Has Fallen - drones in action
    Alita: Battle Angel - good cgi
    Shaft - the comedy department

    which reminds me of a few other options:

    The.Dirt.2019 - intense drugs, sex & rock & roll ride with usa hard rock band 'motley crew'
    Lords.of.Chaos.2019 - occasionally sickening story about the norwegian metal band 'mayhem'
    The.Mule.2018 - eastwood as an elderly drug runner
    Dragon.Ball.Broly.2019 - over the top anime action
    Gemini Man.2019 - just to see a laughable animation of will smith

    Fair enough, the thread title does say "worth watching"... but you had a similarly negative view of Joker, yet it qualified for inclusion

    occasionally, there are anti-recommendations in the list, as in 'watch just to see how something failed'
    since all these big budget movies are hyped per default, it is a matter of picking an example of extreme hype & failure combined

    another (positive) point in favor of joker is the top notch acting by j. phoenix
