Movies are something that have relevance to almost everyone. Regardless of our genre preferences, movies have the ability to draw parallels between us and create unification, and we most certainly have our favourites.

Speaking of favorites, I was curious as to which films took the cake for the 2019 year. Granted, we all have our own opinions of what constitutes a great movies, but these ones laid claim in the cinematic realm for 2019.

Again, this list was compiled by Rotten Tomatoes and is therefore relatively subjective. I haven’t heard of most of the films that made this list, and there’s some missing that I know I would have ranked as some of the best of the year.
