“Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey” is an action-packed affair with colorful clothes, chemicals and confetti. It is fun, quirky and, most of all, entertaining.
Nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score, “Little Women” is a film that has definitely garnered the attention of the Academy and movie-goers alike. Director Greta Gerwig — known for her 2017 directorial debut “Ladybird” which also stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet — effortlessly fuses this classic story of the 19th century with hints of modernity, garnering “Little Women” to be one for the books.
When people ask me what film from last year they should see that they haven’t heard of, the answer is always “Waves,” a powerful independent drama from filmmaker Trey Edward Shults.
The 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday will honor a remarkable year for motion pictures. Before the ceremony begins, let’s break down who will most likely win and also mention who was snubbed from each category.
2019 was a terrific year for movies, one of the best of the past decade. This past year, we saw enchanting remakes, Hollywood epics from legendary filmmakers, blockbuster knockouts, disturbing looks at society, technical masterpieces and movies that simply don’t get made anymore. 2019 was a year that made us appreciate the art of cinema for what it can do and see the world in different ways. Below are 2019’s 10 best films in order.
Take a look at any film critic’s Top 10 List of 2019 and you will certainly find Noah Baumbach's “Marriage Story” at the top. A guaranteed nominee for Best Picture at the upcoming Academy Awards and a likely contender to win, this is a film I wanted to adore and rave about to everyone, yet sadly the film falls short of glory to be fully deserving.
“Dolomite is my name and f*cking up motherf*ckers is my game,” was the common phrase comedic legend Rudy Ray Moore gave himself in his hit films in the 1970s. The comedian portrayed Dolemite, the pimp who battled criminals and engaged in various outlandish humorous situations. His work appealed largely to Black audiences across America and he became a huge icon within the Black community.

After Australian filmmaker Jennifer Kent’s debut critically acclaimed feature film “The Babadook” in 2014 that challenged the notions of the horror genre, she is back with a viciously disturbing tale of brutality. It captures the mostly untold horrors committed throughout history in “The Nightingale,” released limitedly in the U.S. in August.
Timothée Chalamet continues to be on the rise ever since his knockout performance in 2017’s “Call Me By Your Name,” scoring another role in Netflix’s Henry V biopic “The King.” While Chalamet proved he was a gifted talent two years ago, he seems to have left all of his skills in the past, for his portrayal of the King of England is absolutely static.
You have to credit writer/director Julius Onah for attempting to create a film that not only precipitates individual thought, but a larger societal conversation as well. Too many films these days are afraid to explore anything unsettling or provoking and simply cave into fear of challenging audiences' perceptions and emotions.
There are films that come around every now and then that seem to hit all the right notes and impact you in multiple ways. Very few times have I seen a film that can have the audience laughing out loud in one moment, and feeling emotional or sad just 20 seconds later.

In the late 1990s, two massive wrestling companies dominated the industry which at the time was deeply entrenched in American pop culture. Then-the WWF and the now defunct WCW competed for the audience’s attention on a near-nightly basis.

We live in an entertainment era today where virtually every film produced is either a remake, a continuation of an ancient series or recycled story bits put together to make a film lacking any freshness. Leave it to the biggest film-lover in the world and one of the greatest filmmakers of all time to craft a film that not only eloquently reflects on the changing world surrounding pop culture and the entertainment industry, but to create one of the most original, charismatic films of all time.
After the epic and emotional mega hit which was “Avengers: Endgame,” Marvel Cinematic Universe fans needed the next movie in the 23-film series to be a bit of an emotional pick me up. And a brand-new solo adventure featuring the one and only friendly neighborhood web slinger is exactly what was needed!
