I've been updating my original post as I have been going along and up to 20 films, not sure what other peoples opinions are but A Wrinkle in Time was one of the biggest stinkers for me so fsr this year
Yeah, I think that one got crucified by critics. I read the book way back in grade school and wasn’t really that fond of it though some wordplay was clever.
As for me the most recent one I watched was The Nun. It made me want to watch more recent big studio horror movies. My favorite horror is lower budget sometimes more obscure stuff from the 1980s. More broadly my primary viewing seems to be (1958-1993). Pretty much from the rise of Hammer films to 1993 when the very last holdovers of 1980’s stuff died out. Still, it’s good to get outside of this range and enjoy new things

I watched the 1971 film The Brotherhood of Satan yesterday. Some of the visuals are stunning, but the three main sets of characters the plot is made up of seem too disconnected for too long. When they come together it leaves you feeling indifferent. Also, the pacing is quite slow.

8. Here Alone. Not entirely bad. the way they wrote the infected reminded me of that comic series Crossed, but nowhere near as insane. Stars some girl with big nipples who’s naked for a lot of the early parts of movie. The movie is fine when it’s just her (not because of the nudity) but gets boring when other characters are introduced. Good music.
9. Hell of the Loving Dead. I loved every second of this movie. Pure 1980’s European zombie awesomeness. The gore is great. The zombies are perfectly stupid. The characters are so dumb though that the constantly state that they have to shoot the zombies in the head, yet they don’t. If you like Dawn of the Dead you have no reason not to like this too. I liked too that it actually showed how the apocalypse started. You could call this the prequel to Dawn of the Dead. Goblin does the soundtrack and some songs are directly pulled from Dawn of the Dead, most noteably the main theme. Upon reading a bit more about it the soundtrack was borrowed from Dawn of the Dead and another movie called Alien Contamination. I recognized a lot of the actors who played military guys at the beginning of Dawn of the Dead too. And I’m just gonna say it: the main girl is insanely hot, even though I suspect the nude scene is a body double. But whoever that is...wow. I liked this enough to buy the DVD off eBay before I was even a quarter of the way into the movie.
Bird Box- entertaining enough. A little overhyped.
Glass-The acting minus Willis was great, ending was...interesting.
Not from 2019: The Other Guys- forgot how funny this movie was. Doesn't live up to the other Ferrel/McKay collabs but still very entertaining. Equalizer 2- fun as hell. Always down for Denzel killing folks. Bridesmaids- classic. Melissa McCarthy is incredible.
