The last of the best movies for 2019

We start off every year by checking in with a few heavily invested moviegoers/critics for their thoughts on the past year’s best. And then we run them with a minimum of editing. This week’s batch should put 2019 to bed. (Unless I missed somebody.)

Favorite Films of 2019

Parasite — I went into this crushing commentary of the haves and the have-nots almost completely cold … I came out of it excited to tell everyone about it. One of the best films of the decade.

Avengers: Endgame — It’s amazing when I think of how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come since its origin over 11 years ago. Once it was going, we knew it was building up to something huge, and thankfully, it didn’t disappoint.

Marriage Story — Were I an Academy member, I would consider Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story for best actor (Adam Driver), best actress (Scarlett Johansson), best original screenplay (Baumbach), and best picture. Some of the best writing and acting of the year is in this film. (P.S. God bless Netflix!)

Toy Story 4 — Nine years after a satisfying conclusion, I get a Toy Story sequel I didn’t know I wanted. And it was as moving as reuniting with old friends (in the best possible way).

Doctor Sleep — Mike Flanagan, the best director working in the horror film genre today, had a major challenge with this sequel to The Shining: respect and appeal to the legacy of not only filmmaker Stanley Kubrick but also novelist Stephen King. He pulled it off big-time.

Little Women — I saw this beautiful adaptation of the popular L.M. Alcott novel twice, and I’ll definitely be seeing
