Top 10 Favorite Movies of 2019, I just want to say that I have seen like 20 or something movies this year and I am not one of those people who watches like a hundred movies per year or something. Just like I have not watched Joker yet since I thought it would be too violent for me to see on the big screen because I have not seen the media freak out over a movie so much in a long time.
I still will see it, though, just not on the big screen. And also, any anime movies won’t be included in this list since that would make things too complicated. And everything in this list is just my opinion. So yeah, just keep that in mind.
The Angry Birds Movie 2 or Angry Birds 2
Actually had some tough competition between this movie and the Kid Who Would Be King but because I love the Angry Birds franchise way more and because this movie got a few laughs out of me, I decided to give it to this one. An amazing family movie and it’s sad to see how it flopped. I guess that is ultimately what happens when you make movies on a dead franchise, Sony. I hope Sony has learnt their lesson from this movie and Slender Man and they hopefully won’t try to make movies on irrelevant stuff anymore because it’s only the relevant stuff that brings cash at the box office.
Jumanji: The Next Level
This movie pleasantly managed to surprise me because I thought it was actually better than Welcome To The Jungle, which became cringy and desperate at times. The humor in this movie also worked out way better for me and even the visuals are slightly better in this one. But even though it’s better than the first one, it is nothing more than a cliche adventure movie. A fun cliche adventure movies but still an extremely generic and at times predictable movie.
Which is the anticipated sequel of the first Frozen movie. I honestly thought that I would like this movie more and I even thought that this had the chance of being better than the first one due to the more mature themes in the trailer but alas… It disappointed me really bad and forget about surpassing, it wasn’t even as good as the first movie. The animation, however, is gorgeous but that doesn’t help a lot. Same goes to Abominable which had excellent animation but was incredibly boring. The songs are also a big let down and everything about this movie is just so disappointing. I, a normal Frozen fan was so disappointed with it so can you imagine how disappointed the hardcore Frozen fandom must be right now?
Captain Marvel was pretty good and entertaining, it definitely could have been better and maybe even as good as Black Panther. It definitely had the potential for being better, considering that the story the writers had got had given them a LOT of freedom. From the shapeshifting skrulls to the vastness of the universe- there’s just so much freedom for this movie! Why didn’t the characters go to and explore a lot of planets like Guardians of the Galaxy? I hope Captain Marvel 2 has a lot of alien planet exploration in it because I absolutely love fictional alien planets, especially the Star Wars and Marvel ones.
Pokemon fan so it should come as no surprise that Detective Pikachu. Although it wasn’t as good as I was expecting it to be, it was still great nonetheless. Seeing Pokemon in live action itself is enough for me to like this movie. And yeah, some of the designs were a little too “monster-like” like Charizard looking like a freaking big scary dragon monster and all, but I don’t really mind it. The characters are pretty average to be honest but the mystery and adventure of this movie makes up for it and doesn’t let this movie get boring.
I know some of you hate this movie but I really like it. Just because it’s a live action remake doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining. At least it’s not cheesy like The Lion King remake and I thought that they had improved the songs a little bit in this one. Yes, the Genie does look like a stupid hybrid of some sorts but he is in his human form for a lot of the movie so it’s not a problem for me. I would say Will Smith’s amazing acting makes up for the horrible looking Genie. And it’s almost impossible to create a live action faithful adaptation of the Genie and not messing up the looks. We know that Disney puts a lot of effort into their live action movies’ CGI and even Disney couldn’t pull it off so yeah, it’s not an easy task.
Ford V Ferrari
I didn’t know a lot about this real life incidents this movie is based on so it pleasantly surprised me with how good it was! What holds it back for me is the ending because that was a big letdown.
DC’s origin story beat Marvel’s origin story in my list last year and this time, the same thing is happening again. Yes, Shazam comes at 3rd place. If DC continues making awesome movies like this and Aquaman, then I can see a bright future for the DCEU. And I am pretty sure that I will like Joker a lot too so yeah, DC seems to be coming back on track. Now DC vs. Marvel will be even more fun since now it seems both are making equally as great movies. I mean, Aquaman and Joker made a billion so it’s not like origin stories don’t bring in any money.
Toy Story 4
I love Pixar so freaking much. They managed to make me cry yet freaking again. This is my favorite Toy Story movie so far and one of my favorite Pixar movies of all time, if not my favorite one. The twist at the end literally dropped my jaw and this movie was entertaining throughout. There was not a single moment in the movie that didn’t keep me interested and entertained. I love this movie and Pixar so, so much! Can’t wait for Soul and Onwards.
I know that some of you were disappointed by this movie or something but I absolutely love it. In fact, it’s not only my favorite movie of 2019 but of all time. Yes, I love this movie that much. This movie gets the balance between fanservice and story and I love it for that. The third act is mainly the reason this is my favorite movie. That “On Your Left” gave me goosebumps and it just got even better from there on out! From Captain America lifting up the Mjolnir to all the snapped heroes coming back to the Avengers Assemble to the I Am Iron Man snap. Everything, everything about this movie makes me appreciate it. Such an amazing movie.
