My Most Anticipated Films of 2019 – A Look Back

Blossoms (dir. Wong Kar-wai) 
Changed to a web series, yet to be released.

Brightburn (dir. David Yaorvesky)
Great concept, terrible execution. Check out my review.

Climax (dir. Gaspar Noe)
Some people love it, others despise it. I found it entertaining and wonderfully weird. Check out my review.

Glass (dir. M. Night Shyalaman)
Ugh. Shyamalan has lost whatever it is he once had. Check out my review.

High Life (dir. Claire Denis)
Dark and brooding, loved it. Check out my review.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things (dir. Charlie Kaufman)
Delayed to 2020.

The Irishman (dir. Martin Scorsese)
Beautiful. A reflection on aging and regret. Check out my review.

Joker (dir. Todd Phillips)
Definitely not as profound as people think, but not the worst thing in the world. Check out my review.

Knives Out (dir. Rian Johnson)
I still think Brick and Looper are better, but this was a good one. Check out my review.

Midsomer (dir. Ari Aster)
Brilliant, stunning. One of the best theater experiences of the year. Check out my review.

The Modern Ocean (dir. Shane Carruth)
Delayed, again. Possibly never going to be made.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (dir. Quentin Tarantino)
The good kind of nostalgia. Check out my review.

Pet Semetary (dir. Dennis Widmeyer & Kevin Kolsch)
Tragically terrible. Check out my review.

Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon (dir. Richard Starzak)
I haven’t seen it yet, but I need to carve out some time. Love Shaun.

Star Wars Episode IX (dir. J.J. Abrams)
The creative death of Star Wars, which was always heavily a product to be sold, but any belief that Star Wars can say anything about people is gone. Check out my review.

The Turning (2019, dir. Floria Sigismondi)
Delayed to 2020.

Us (dir. Jordan Peele)
Didn’t live up to the hype, but has grown on me since I first saw it. Brilliant moments, but a tone that kills the horror too often. Check out my review.

Velvet Buzzsaw (dir. Dan Gilroy)
Dan Gilroy was lucky with Nightcrawler. This can be enjoyed as an adult Goosebumps story. Check out my review.
