Now that I have dug through all the trash, this year we begin 2020 with the best films of 2019. Most people reading this will be unfamiliar with a few of these movies so I suggest you check them out as they are worth the watch. Character Studies, foreign films, Americana, and narrative films led the pack in this year.
With Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga officially tasked to star in this movie, for months there has been buzz that this movie is a lock for Academy Award season and it hadn’t even premiered yet. Well, the wait is over, and the film that everyone can’t stop talking about and Lady Gaga fans even tried to sabotage reviews for Venom (as if a Sony film needs fake bad reviews) to make sure the film opens at number 1. The question is, does A Star is Born deserve the massive hype behind it, or is this another example of Hollywood loving itself more than audiences?
The film First Man is a story about the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. Unfortunately, it is also a movie that is gaining attention for all the wrong reasons. More especially it is gaining attention for what the film has chosen not to show than what it will.
Solo: A Star Wars Movie is a mediocre film that shoots itself in the foot preventing it from becoming great. If the writers never said Lando was ‘pansexual’ they wouldn’t have caused more people to pass on the film than want to watch it. If Kennedy could do one Star Wars film where a lead female character doesn’t stop the film to make a progressive rant against Capitalism, Star Wars fans would have less to complain about.
It’s that time of the year again, for me to take out 12 months of frustration on the worst pieces of trash that took a minimum of 20 hours out of my life. Now I have to note that there were a lot of bad movies in 2017 but only a select handful of them actually made me upset watching them. So a few films you won’t see on the list like Fifty Shades Darker and Wish Upon which were obviously bad movies, but had an enjoyment factor over how bad those movies were. The films that made this list has no enjoyment factor, they are human trash. Here is the list of Top 10 worst movies of 2017 with some Honorable Mentions.
Ghost in the Shell is a step in the right direction for Hollywood in adapting anime movies into live-action features films, opening up the possibilities for better translations and erasing bad memories of some past endeavors (see Dragonball: Evolution). So, I just have this left to say…. I am Jason and I give me consent for you to like and comment on my review of Ghost in the Shell.
