2019: In Review Quick Review Year In Review

So 2019 is almost over and it’s that time a year again where everyone reflects back on their best and worst films of the year.  So first up… the 10 WORST films of 2019 (with a few honourable mentions!).  And, as always, there were more than a few to choose from..

 

 

Stinker of LAST Year: Holmes & Watson

In Brief: The film so bad I actually forgot i watched it.  Nothing funny here just a total miss of a movie. Worst thing – It actually came out in 2018 and this whole year I had this down as my 2019 Worst film of the year. I now hate it even more.

 

 

Stinker of the Year (2019): The Dead Don’t Die

In Brief: Pretentious? Yup. Boring. Yup. Pointless? Even more so. The Dead Don’t Die is just a total slog.

 

2. Lucky Day

In Brief: Roger Avery is back.  And it’s pretty clear he has no idea how to make a film anymore.  Sub Tarantino garbage.

 

3. Alita: Battle Angel

In Brief: So many years.  So much money. So little point.

 

4. Hellboy (2019)

In Brief: It’s total garbage.  A boring, mess of a film that offers nothing new and even less interesting.

 

5. The Fanatic – It’s just really, really, really stupid.

 

6. Godzilla: King of The Monsters – Lots of money + lots of monsters + zero plot still equals a shit film


7. 3 From Hell –
Rob Zombie shits on his few decent movies with this tedium.


8. Close –
Another year another failed Netflix movie.


9. Anna –
A dull Luc Besson action film that the world could have happily have done without

 

10. X-Men: Dark Phoenix  – Big budget, big ideas, stupid film and worst… it’s totally forgettable. The 2nd worst X-Men movie (yes this is still not as bad as X-Men 3)

 

Dis-Honourable Mentions: Velvet Buzzsaw , Into The Ashes, Killer Sofa, Child’s Play (2019), Crawl, Pet Sematary (2019), Gemini Man, Triple Threat, The Banana Splits Movie, Trial By Fire, Stuber, Rabid (2019), Angel Has Fallen

 

The 2019 Films I just couldn’t Finish: Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers, Mary Queen Of Scotts

The Banana Splits Movie (2019) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

The Banana Splits Movie (2019) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Banana Splits Movie, produced by the same company who made the recent Critters reboot, ALMOST nails its impressively odd concept.  Yup… remember the cute kids show from the 60’s… well the The Banana Splits are back.  But as insane psycho killers.  Preying on audience members.  And executives.  And, in fact, anyone that get’s in their way. As a concept it’s up there with Killer Klowns From Outta Space but whilst that movie has its tongue firmly in cheek, sadly Banana Splits takes itself too seriously and a dose of that stupid but graphic horror humour would have worked a treat here. So far from terrible, there’s things to enjoy here but it’s certainly not essential.

Best Bit: Magic!

Child’s Play (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Child’s Play (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Child’s Play is saved from being a total disaster by one sequence near the end the film that takes place in a mall.  That one sequence is JUST about good enough to drag this from a 3 or 4/10 to a 5/10. It still doesn’t quite stick the landing and the sequel bate ending makes no sense…. but it could have been worse.   The thing is ANY horror film that cuts away from its gore more than it focuses on it is made for the wrong audience.  Chucky fans don’t want cuts away… we want head slices, chops and gore.  What Child’s Play 2019 feels like is a debate between a filmmaker who wants a NC-17 and a studio who wants a PG-13.  Nobody wins here.  And nobody did. (Note to Mark Hamill who does a nice job and the central AI idea kinda works.  Kinda).

Best Bit: The Mall
