Would this be a favourite movies post if it WASN’T 5 million years late?
And am I just incapable of getting movie content up on time? Yes, yes I am. But I swear I want to try and get better at it and post more frequently. If that’s okay with you all?
This list is EXTREMELY short oh my gosh. I literally only watched 45 movies last year. My 2018 favourites was a lot longer as I watched A TON. I also don’t have a ‘worst movies’ list because I didn’t watch any bad ones last year??
Also since the list of my favourite books isn’t made up of ONLY books that came out that year, I try and make my movies list up of only films that were released that year or late the previous year. So this does have a couple of 2018 films on it but I did watch all of them last year. If that makes any sense at all, which it probably doesn’t. OH WELL.
This also probably a good time to say that you should follow my Letterboxd account because I log all the movies I watch on there. Let’s be friends because I don’t know anybody hehe. It’s also just such a good website with HALF STARS!! A miracle!! COME ON GOODREADS.
I think it’s enough rambling and we should just get on with the blog post.
5) Bohemian Rhapsody
Yes, here I am talking about this film like 2 years after it’s come out. I KNOW everybody and their mother and grandmother was talking about it but like IT DESERVES ALL THE HYPE! The entire internet was SATURATED and it was intense, to say the least. Also, I see all of you who were only into Queen AFTER this movie. A bit late honey. Nah just kidding, but it is a bit much. I’m just an old music fanatic okay SORRY.
But seriously, how is it THAT good? I truly don’t know. Rami Malek just SERVES and I think he’s an amazing actor. The man is very inspiring and I-C-O-N-I-C. The storytelling is so powerful and the story itself so riveting. Really all the acting is amazing and they did all the music so well. We just love Bohemian Rhapsody in this household.
Funnily enough, my favourite song is not the same as the title of the film but Another One Bites The Dust because of the bass omg. Not that you care but anyways. Okay enough screaming. Moving on.
4) Spider-Man: Far Frome Home
Yeah so apparently I never talked about my most anticipated film of the entire year? I truly am the biggest failure. Whoops?
Yeah, so I went to see this on release date with my favourite people, Amy and Meredith. And we had such a fun time. I went to see it in 4DX which is an EXPERIENCE™ in itself. There’s water spritzing you in the face and the chair rocks back and forth. Yo I was… enthralled, to say the least.
I also don’t want to say that I have mixed feelings about this film, because that’s not it. It’s more like I STILL don’t know what to feel. Listen, this movie made me CRY. And my mind was all!! over!! the!! place!! Tom Holland (and the whole cast) is just FANTASTIC and I adore Peter Parker, MJ and Ned. AND THE PLOT TWIST OMG. THAT ENDING. We also all had a heart attack with that almost cancellation last year. The whole franchise is just a freaking rollercoaster of emotions. Truly.
And this movie was truly so amazing?? But I’m also still so overwhelmed. But I still love it. I should rewatch to solidify my feelings. Maybe I’m the mess. Probably HA.
Also, I did also go and see Avengers Endgame. I didn’t love Infinity War as much as everyone else but this was one was much better. It’s not on my favourites list but it’s worth mentioning here. Also lowkey fitting and predictable that seeing Spiderman was my favourite part. #sorrynotsorry
3) How To Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World
Oh my gosh, I just realised that this was also a film I went to see with Amy and Meredith hehe. WE HAVE TASTE!
THIS FILM IS SO FREAKING BEAUTIFUL!! And all you animation haters can LEAVE AND ALSO HAVE ZERO TASTE. I take no criticisms at this hour. Or ever. Mm ‘kay, rant over. Like honestly I don’t know how they did it. But just WOW. I was also TEARING up near the end. I think I’ve turned into a baby now welp.
(Now realising it has been a while since I’ve watched this and am struggling to remember it wow fake fan).
Did I mention how beautiful this movie was?? Because WOW. I am a firm believer that animation is not for kids and it is under-appreciated. Because jeez my eyes were just blessed.
I’m currently sad that the franchise is over. And that Christmas short did not quench my thirst. But it’s an amazing film and it just has the purest storyline. Highly recommend. If you haven’t watched this series yet, DO IT NOW. And be prepared for all the warm (and sad) feelings.
2) Solo: A Star Wars Story / Star Wars VIII: The Rise of Skywalker
Friends, I thought it’d be unfair to have TWO Star Wars movies taking up individual spots on this list. And I wanted to keep the number five but that’s beside the point. This is my blog post, okay, I can do what I want.
I thoroughly loved both of these films. Solo was so great, and just the best space heist movie. It was just such a fun and adventurous space heist. I ~think~ Han Solo is also my favourite character so having a movie all about him is a bonus *wink wink*
And now we can cry because Star Wars is over. I will admit, this movie was all over the place. It is by no means amazing or the best movie ever. But I had THE BEST time watching the final Star Wars film. It had action and I was rooting for like all the characters. I was just highly entertained and my heart was beating. My family and I went to see it on Boxing Day and it was such a cool day. Why do all the fans hate it?? Can’t relate…
1) Frozen II
And let us just take a second to drool all over this film because my mind ~ exploded ~ into millions of pieces. It was SPECTACULAR.
I was SO AMPED to watch this film and I literally watched every single cast interview that existed because they’re amazing. And I just,,, don’t know who I am anymore. I was SO not into Frozen when it first came out. It just felt like too much with all the four-year-old fans lmao. Then I rewatched and actually thoroughly enjoyed and now I’m fully invested in this franchise.
The music, the ANIMATION and omg the CHARACTERS!! I love them all. This movie outdid itself and yes was better than the first one. And I saw it in the cinema and it was truly a beauty to behold. It’s just so heart-warming. I love Sven and Anna and Olaf and Elsa. It’s just *chefs kiss*
Still not over it tbh SEND HALP
And that’s it for today folks. This post was super short, for a change. I’ve been writing bibles lately lmao.
Also, let’s start a petition for Ruby to a) be more on time with these and b) write more movie content.
