Best to Worst of 2019

by Nickerbocker9 | created - 7 months ago | updated - 1 week ago | Public

For the sake of continuity between these lists, I'll put each film in the year it was released in the US (whether that be limited or wide).

I'll update this list every time I see a new 2019 film.

Side note: I don't include the Star Wars movies because that sh*t is too close to the heart to rate.
