The film industry was on fire in 2019. There were several brilliant comedies, dramas, and thrillers that came out last year. There were four films in particular that I absolutely loved and stayed on my kind for a while after seeing them. If you haven’t seen even one of these four films, I highly suggest that you make a big bowl of popcorn and enjoy!
- “Little Women”
I read the book in high school, and I was so excited to see that another Little Women film was being released. I was even more excited when I saw that Saoirse Ronan and Emma Watson were to be two of the sisters. Saoirse is a wonderful actress; she first caught my eye in “Lady Bird” which was directed by an alum from my high school, Greta Gerwig!
Greta shows off her amazing directing skills in “Little Women.” I was memorized by the cinematography and the script. Every aspect of the film left me feeling warm-hearted and joyful. This one is a must-see.
- “Avengers: Endgame”
For any Marvel fan, this movie was long awaited. It was a dramatic conclusion to the Avengers’ story along with that of phase three of Marvel films. With the numerous characters in the film, the action scenes were amazing. Although some scenes were heartbreaking to watch, the film overall was a huge success and a perfect ending to several stories.
After loving “Bohemian Rhapsody” and going on my tenth time watching it, I was curious to see how “Rocketman” would do in theatres. “Bohemian Rhapsody” came out only a year before “Rocketman” so I wondered if the films were going to be similar. However, even though both films follow the life of a well-known artist who faced some life obstacles, the directing styles were very different.
In my eyes, “Rocketman” is directed more towards a musical film whereas “Bohemian Rhapsody” tells the story of Freddie Mercury and his journey to fame. I think the directing style for “Rocketman” is perfectly fitting and identifies itself as unique and different from “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
If you enjoyed “Split,” then you’ll enjoy “Glass.” This sequel of some sorts delves into the growing relationship between James McAvoy and his several personalities with David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson). The three of them work together to escape from a mental institution and bring awareness of their conditions to the world. Three separate characters from three separate films come together to make one epic film!
These four titles made 2019 an amazing year for film. If you get the chance, cross them off your must-watch list!
