    ...for movies. Best in the decade, I'd wager. Lots of well crafted movies this past year, an obscene amount in fact. Here's a list of some of my favorite movies that I watched last year.

    The Lighthouse
    1917
    Joker
    Parasite
    The Irishman
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    Knives Out
    Doctor Sleep
    El Camino
    The Fanatic (this one is terrible, but is so bad it's good.)
    Ready or Not
    The Peanut Butter Falcon
    Midsommar
    John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum (That's quite a mouthful, innit?)
    Detective Pikachu
    Shazam!

    Those are just the ones I can think off the top of my head. The first three are or so are in order, the rest were just spewed haphazardly onto the page. Cheers.

    Now I feel outdated :D haven't seen one of the movies on the list. If i do watch movies they are mostly from 80s or 90s or a few in 2000

    The Lighthouse was perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen.
    The Irishman was a snoozefest.
    Some of the others are on my to-watch list.

    I just re-watched Brazil.
    What a strange, timeless, & wonderful movie.

    I myself have not seen any of those movies that decade or in 2019. My favorite decade for movies was definitely the 90s but the 80s had some great movies to.

    Loved The Fugitive "with Harrison Ford" and I also loved "Princess Mononoke" when it came to movie animation.

    Wow, you must really, really, really like movies. Good for you!

    I'd like to get out and see more newer movies (as a film buff), but I'm over 50 now, so can't do it as much. I can watch new movies when my college aged kids come over and they pick what they want to see.

    I agree with:
    The Lighthouse
    1917
    Joker
    Parasite
    The Irishman (saw but didn't like) - What did you you like about it?
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (haven't seen but would like to)
    Knives Out (ditto)
    El Camino (It was very good, but not on the level of BB; rated 7.5)
    John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum (haven't seen but would like to)
    Detective Pikachu (lol; you're a better man than me)
    Shazam! (did see, something different but only ok, gave it a 7)
