Rewind: Nathan Rose's Top Picks For 2019 and The Decade in Film

Rewind: Nathan Rose's Top Picks For 2019 and The Decade in Film

It's that time of year again. All your favorite critics put out their list of favorite films for the year (and, in this case, for the decade as well). This year, I took a different approach where I will award the best film technically, as well as emotionally for me. The reason being, If you asked someone what the best picture of 1975 would be some would say Jaws, while others would say the Academy Award winner Godfather Part II. So read this list with critic, and a little fanboy, passion mixed in as well.

Also, I know there is a lot of horror and thrillers on the list, but that is really the genre that shined this year!

  • Terminator: Dark Fate (Paramount Pictures)
