The Courier
Benedict Cumberbatch is like bacon and butter, he makes everything he's in better. I'm sure The Courier would have been a wonderful film without him because the story is so compelling and incredible, but it could end up being one of my favorite films of the year because he is in it. Based on a true story, this otherwise unbelievable story is filled with suspense, intrigue, and fascinating characters. It is a powerful examination of how even a seemingly average person living an average life can step up and accomplish extraordinary things...

Raya and the Last Dragon
(In theaters). I was excited from the first moment I saw the teaser poster for this film. I couldn't wait to see it. I just hoped it would live up to all of my wild expectations. It did. This movie is awesome. It is funny, sentimental, inspiring, sad, powerful, and beautiful. You'll spend a lot of time laughing, a lot of time cheering on Raya, and a lot of time holding your breath as she faces difficult challenges head on. Awkwafina...

The Trial of the Chicago 7
Aaron Sorkin is a master story teller. He is one of the best ever at writing compelling and dynamic dialogue. In this film he takes that skill to a new level and delivers a powerful story that may be the best film of the year. Not only is the screenplay near perfection, but it is performed by an ensemble of actors that absolutely nail their roles. It would not surprise me at all to see multiple Best Supporting Actor nominations from this movie. If you are a fan of fast-moving, high-stakes drama...

Enola Holmes
This is easily one of the most fun and unique films of the year. It uses the technique of breaking the fourth wall to perfection. It is filled with fun effects, graphics and puzzles. The acting by Millie Bobby Brown proves that what she did in Stranger Things was no fluke. She is a powerhouse actor. She also makes you fall in love with her character right from the start. You will find yourself cheering her on every step of the way. The rest of the cast is amazing as well. The...

Last Call
Well, here it is. This is easily one of my favorite films of the year. There is nothing much to say except this is a must-see film. If you are a fan of artistic cinema you have to see this. If you are a fan of dramatic performances, you have to see this. If you are a fan of Dylan Thomas, you have to see this. If you've liked any of the films nominated for Best Picture in the last 10 years, you have to see this. While I still have more films to see before...

1917
Oh, my. What a film. This is one of the most exciting, riveting, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat movies to come out in several years. I haven't gripped the arm rests this tight since I saw THE WALK in 2015. (That was the movie about the guy that did a tightrope walk between the twin towers). I felt like I was holding my breath for nearly two hours. For 98% of the movie you are sure that the main characters are in mortal danger, and you feel it right along with them. ...

Just Mercy
For the life of me I can not figure out why this movie is not getting a ton of award nominations. This is easily one of the best films of the year. (This had a limited release in December so it is eligible for the 2019 awards season). If it were up to me this would be nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor - Michael B. Jordan, and Best Supporting Actor - Jamie Foxx. This isn't a fast-paced film, it tells the story in a slow, but deliberate way. Every second of it is compelling and emotional....

Jojo Rabbit
While I'm sure we all have something in us that says it will always be too soon for a comedy with Adolf Hitler, there is the reality that this is a spectacular film in every way, and may end up being my favorite movie of the year. Be warned now, that if you run into me on the streets and we start talking movies, I will tell you that you absolutely HAVE to see this film. This movie is one of the funniest I have seen in a long time, but it is also heartwarming, heartbreaking, and...

Harriet
HARRIET has "Oscar contender" written all over it. From the screenplay, to the score, to the acting, and beyond, I can see this film getting six or seven nominations with ease. However, it is still very early in the awards season, and with some big, powerhouse films on the way, this one might not make the final cut. Even so, this is an amazing and powerful film worth seeing. Cynthia Erivo gives a career-defining performance as Harriet Tubman. Her acting draws you in and makes you feel like you are right there with her. You feel the...

Joker
Welp. There is no need to go any further in the nomination process for best actor this year. The Academy might as well go ahead and mail the Oscar to Joaquin Phoenix's house. I'd bet the mortgage payment that there won't be a better acting performance this year. As for the movie. I loved it. And I hated it. This is, so far, my favorite film of the year. It is incredible and terrible in every way. I was completely taken in by the story, and yet so repulsed by...
