Ya know, before I got into my picks, I was planning on throwing in some quick hit movie reviews to this post when I realized something… I have literally seen zero movies in theaters from 2019!
I’ve been to the movie theater only twice since the new year and we saw Free Solo and Aquaman, which both came out last year. I recently rented Bohemian Rhapsody, and that was, uh, ya know, a music biopic. You can’t deny that. I think the only movies I’ve seen that were actually released in 2019 were those Fyre Festival docs on Netflix/Hulu.
Meanwhile, I check my Fandango app every week and I’ve actively avoided Escape Room, Alita Battle Angel, Glass, The Kid Who Would Be King, The Upside, Miss Bala, Lego Movie 2, Cold Pursuit, What Men Want, A Dog’s Way Home, Happy Death Day 2U, Velvet Buzzsaw, and Isn’t It Romantic.
…Not off to a great start, 2019.
So let’s remember a year that actually released some watchable movies, and do these picks. I didn’t do too good last year and tried to go with logic a bunch of times, maybe I’ll try to go with my gut this time. And I haven’t eaten lunch yet, so my gut is hungry for victory. Victory and pulled pork sandwiches.
This year I’ll try something new and also give my second guess choices, so I can look back and see how many times I should have actually went with my gut.
