2019 has been a very high quality year for film and I feel this has been the toughest list to put together in the whole ten years of Let’s Go The Movies. Which is certainly a very good and amazing thing for cinema and films. Not only have this years best come from cinema releases but Netflix have really come into the picture with some incredible films with amazing performances. With my list it might feel a little bit all over the place with some of the films that are on it due to UK release dates, but also take into consideration that I have also been lucky enough to see some previews of films as well.

2019 Films overall – here
I had 22 films that were on my list for Best Films of 2019 and it has been very tough to knock that down to the 10 that have then made up this list. Just missing out (Brittany Runs a Marathon, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Klaus, Judy, Crawl)
This one has certainly put together a very impressive cast and while the story is by no means new they must be going for the whole award scene with the previous Oscar nominees and winners.
Directed by Greta Gerwig starring Saorise Ronan, Meryl Streep, Emma Watson, Timothy Chalamet, Florence Pugh, Laura Dern, Eliza Scanlen, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Chris Cooper, Louis Garrel and Abby Quinn.
Moving on from the top 10 best and worst list I also like putting together some films that have disappointed me during the past year. These are mainly the films that I was looking forward to or had a lot of hype around them and just well didn’t live up to it!
Charlie has just started High School as a Freshmen and doesn’t have any friends, he has been struggling to deal with life and had spent some time in hospital. We slowly find out what has been bothering him and events which happened as a child which have left a damaging effect on everything he does.
The Women in Film Blogathon is being hosted by John over at Hitchcock’s World and such a great idea to get you thinking about female characters in the world of film.
Here are the rules:
The female character in question should have qualities that make her strong. That doesn’t necessarily mean better than the guys, just well-written; we’re trying to promote equality here, not reverse misogyny.
Unlike my previous blogathon, I’m going to be a bit stricter here and say that each entry should only focus on one character. However, if you like you can write multiple entries examining different characters.
If you can, do try to find less obvious choices. There are a few that I can expect are likely to get picked: Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor, etc. If you decide to write about any the “obvious” choices, I encourage you to at least try and find something new to say about them.
You are allowed to pick characters from any film from genre or time period you like.
