I’ve already covered what I saw in 2019. This post will rehash some of that, but I’ll give you more insight into my reaction to each title by categorizing them. Think of it as my own mini-awards show.

One Hit Wonders for Me (Movies I Wouldn’t Seek to See Again)

  • Welcome to Marwen
  • Glass
  • The Upside
  • Cold Pursuit
  • Fighting With My Family
  • Nancy Drew: The Hidden Staircase – I enjoyed it, and I’m still a Nancy Drew fan, but it’s just not good enough to warrant seeking out again.
  • Captive State
  • Unplanned – Super-powerful and moving movie, but not exactly a feel-good story to re-experience.
  • Hellboy 2
  • Pokemon: Detective Pikachu
  • Godzilla: King of Monsters – Cool fights, but that’s about all it had going for it.
  • Aladdin
  • Dark Phoenix – Cool fights, but of the comic book movies, it’s just okay.
  • Shaft  
  • Stuber – Not worth a re-watch.
  • The Lion King
  • The Matrix (20th anniversary)
  • Rambo: Last Blood
  • Joker
  • Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
  • Black and Blue – Good movie, but there are so many movies and so little time.
  • IT Chapter Two – Horror is not my thing. This only confirms it.
  • Knives Out – Decent movie but I hated nearly every character. Ain’t nobody got time for that kind of irritated feeling.
  • Zombieland 2

Worth Re-Watching (Movies I Would See Again if the Chance Arose)

  • Captain Marvel
  • Avengers: End Game – I like that we finally got some closure. Infinity War ended horribly.
  • Men in Black 4 – Pawny is awesome.  
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home – I’m borderline on this one, but I saw it a few times and enjoyed it both times.
  • Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw
  • How to Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World
  • Angel Has Fallen – When looking for mindless action, you can rely on this series.
  • Alita: Battle Angel
  • Charlie’s Angels
  • Lego Movie 2
  • Shazam!
  • Secret Life of Pets 2
  • Terminator: Dark Fate

Movies I Hope to See Again Someday (Will Likely Seek Out)

  • Jumanji: The Next Level – Would definitely see twice in theaters. It has that sort of larger than life appeal that’s great on a big screen.
  • Star Wars Ep IX: The Rise of Skywalker – Definitely seeing a few times in theater.
  • Frozen 2 – Not as good as the first, but it carries the torch well.

Surprisingly Good

  • Jumanji: The Next Level
  • Black and Blue
  • Captain Marvel
  • Zombieland 2
  • Terminator: Dark Fate

Favorite Movie of 2019

Jumanji: The Next Level

Since I’m a big Star Wars fan, you might find that surprising. Jumanji turns out to be the “better movie” because it had less expectations. It found its brand of weird comedy and capitalized big time. They also managed to fit a few awesome side stories in and around the main plot.


I’m not sure how many times I’ll see Star Wars, Jumanji: The Next Level, and Frozen 2, but suffice to say it’s likely more than once. I enjoyed the majority of the movies I got to see in 2019. Looking forward to what 2020 holds.
