Olivia picks her most anticipated films of 2019
Since I was not able to make it to too many films this year, made a Top Ten List for films debuting in theaters in 2019 instead. Here they are:
10. The Peanut Butter Falcon
Another film that might have select screenings, but just as much appeal given its charming synopsis on IMDb, I was drawn to The Peanut Butter Falcon for its Indie film feel and heart. It will be a film treasured more for it’s plot, and given it’s cast one done for the love of the plot and not the promised reception.
8. & 9. The Lion King / Aladdin
Much like the first two films included in my list, the live action production of The Lion King and Aladdin will be a must for the ’90’s child’ still kicking inside of me and millions of others who will jokingly fight past young families to get a ticket. Yes, some of the recent live-action remakes have been met with mixed reviews, but that will not deter most of us from attending a matinee screening or two.
7. The Best of Enemies
Everyone should include a film on their list based on true events, especially events that make them uncomfortable but educated from the viewing experience. Depicting the unique relationship between a Civil Rights leader and the Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan this film will undoubtedly be prolific and inspirational given the current state of racial conflict in our society.
