I thought I'd create this thread to share reviews and opinions on this year's (2019) movies.

*Please remember to give warning before posting spoliers.

Any memorable films this year? Any favorites? Any shocks? Any flops?

No spoilers, but id say my absolute favorites this year include Us, Endgame, Shazam, Booksmart, Late Night, and Spiderman. Lots of decent films this year however. Cant wait to catch The Farewell, Stuber, and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood later this month.

I have seen nothing memorable but really enjoyed "Endgame", "Spiderman" and "Rocketman". Went to see "Yesterday" last weekend and although the premise is not realistic it as a fun and cute movie with Beatle music that I love. (got a kick out of Ed Sheeran in the movie)

A movie I was greatly looking forward to, The Woman in the Window starring Amy Adams, has now been delayed to 2020.

I love going to the movies, and thanks to A-List, I go quite frequently. My favorite of 2019 so far was definitely Booksmart. Rocketman and Late Night were also memorable. I cried at Toy Story 4 - I grew up with the movies, and I loved #4.

If you enjoy Kumail and Dave then I totally recommend Stuber. Fun summer comedy imo. Nothing too special but with A list it was certainly more than enjoyable.
