Stuff I’ve already talked about
- Godzilla (2019): I was really looking forward to Godzilla: King of Monsters, and I liked it. It was an intense movie, with a lot of action from start to finish. I liked all the monster designs, as well as the overall story. However, I do think that parts of the movie relied on having some knowledge about the first movie. So I would watch them in order.
- Hobbs & Shaw: It might be a spinoff, but I liked Hobbs & Shaw. There was plenty of action, and the funny dialogue between Hobbs and Shaw was great.
- Venom: I honestly enjoyed Venom. It had a different feel—a bit of an urban grittiness with a touch of horror—that I liked. I would watch a sequel.
- Shazam!: Shazam is one of my favorite DC movies to date. It had a great cast, and generally speaking, I enjoyed the movie overall. The story was concise, with great introductions for the villain and the main character.
- Detective Pikachu: I loved this movie. It made a somewhat simple story go a long way. I liked the story and the cast and their performances, as well as the character design. All of the Pokémon looked great, mainly because of how true to their original designs they were.
- Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse: I loved this movie. It had a great story. I loved the characters and the soundtrack. I also was a complete fan of the animation. It was so stylish, colorful, and atmospheric. It made me think of comic books, and it was great.
- Aladdin (2019): I liked this version of Disney’s Aladdin. The set design was great, and it was like the original but with enough differences to make it its own thing.
- Discovery of Witches: One of the book-to-TV adaptations I was looking forward to was Discovery of Witches. It seemed pretty faithful to the story. The actors seemed well-suited to roles they were cast in, and I liked their performances. I enjoyed the first season, and I’m looking forward to the next one whenever it gets released in the US.
- Father Brown: I really got into this mystery series on Netflix in the latter half of 2019. I’m not done watching all six seasons yet, but I plan to eventually get through all of the episodes.
