2020 doesn't just mark a new year, it's the dawn of a new decade. Like several other critics and outlets, I too have taken this opportunity to reflect back at the past 10 years and have come up with my list of favorite films. Some have resonated even more over the years, whereas others were nearly forgotten.
Some of my "top" films of previous years also haven't held up quite as well to the rigors of time, but ALL of these films still are powerful, emotional and represent the best of cinema in all genres. So let's get to it, shall we?
The year is coming to a close, and it's been one heck of a year for film. Read on for my list of the Best Movies of 2019!
"Uncut Gems" is a high-wire act of mood and energy, and it will pummel your senses. It's also one of the best movies of 2019, if you can endure it.
We've seen numerous adaptations of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel on the small and big screens, but remixed and led by director Greta Gerwig, this version of "Little Women" soars to new heights.
Jay Roach's approach to the sexual harassment lawsuit that rocked FOX News is not quite "fair and balanced," but it sure is fun.
If you're curious as a cat about the latest "Cats" movie adaptation, brace yourself...this one is purrrrrrrrrr-etty bad.
Auteur Terrence Malick is at it again, projecting another frustrating piece of contemplative cinema in front of the masses, knowing full-well that only a small niche, spiritually-tuned audience will "get him." "A Hidden Life" isn't worth the struggle.
42 years in the making, the Skywalker Saga draws to a close with its ninth and final Episode. So will fans be pleased with "The Rise of Skywalker"? There are MILD SPOILERS to follow, so prepare yourself...
Two fantastic actors take on two amazing men, and the results are nothing short of miraculous. Too bad the film doesn't have faith enough to stay focused in the present.
Director Clint Eastwood has a lot to say about the power and influence of media, and uses this real-life story as the backdrop for his message.
