Sean Mack's top ten movies of 2019

Pass the popcorn!

December 30, 2019

2019 was a pretty good year at the movies…well, except for “Cats”.  Here are my ten favorite movies of the year!

10.  The Irishman

A little on the long side, but no one does Gangster movies like Scorsese.

9.  Uncut Gems

This movie is stressful, but it’s meant to be.  Adam Sandler’s character is always teetering on the brink of disaster and he takes you along for the ride.

8.  Knives Out

We don’t get a lot of “Whodunit” movies these days, because they are really hard to pull off.  Rian Johnson and a great cast do just that.

7.  Shazam!

Just plain fun.  Superhero movies should do more of this. 


6.  The Art of Self-Defense

A great dark comedy that flew a little bit under the radar.  Catch this on streaming.

5.  Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

Pitt, DiCaprio, and Tarantino at the top of their games.

4.  Us

Jordan Peele’s follow-up to “Get Out” delivered.  Lupita Nyong’o should get some Oscar love for her two roles.

3.  Jojo Rabbit

A funny and sweet movie about Nazis?  Just go see it.

2.  Parasite

I can’t really talk about this movie without giving anything away, just know that it starts one way and goes in a completely different direction at some point and you won’t forget it.

1.  Booksmart

The funniest movie of 2019.  It’s also a great movie about friendship and growing up.  It’s about to get robbed at the Oscars and I’m going to be very mad, but it topped my list at least!
