Best Movies of 2019

As 2018 comes to an end and already is 2019 in a few countries as this list is made, there will be a lot of movies released in 2019, animated and live-action mostly. This list showcases the best movies made in 2019

The Top Ten

1 Avengers: Endgame

Frankly, it beats the title of best film of the year. No matter what your preference is, you can't deny that everything from the acting, the effects, script, ending, all of it was perfect. Characters remained as we knew them from previous films for the most part, comedy and drama balanced so well and yet maintaining climax at so many points, can't even begin to describe what else qualifies it to be amongst the best works of the film industry, both contemporary and all time. This one is going to be a classic a few years from now on and even if we do get an unexpected revive in new creative originals, it'll still stand out, a new milestone, from which new directors and new writers will draw inspiration from. The hard work of everyone who helped make this film will hopefully be appreciated in the future as well. Simply a masterpiece in its entirety, a perfect end to the Avengers' tetralogy, Stan Lee's legacy.

This is probably my favourite movie of all time. It's the epic conclusion of 11 years of epic movies. It uses our love of the characters we've grown up with. It's hilarious, more emotional than any other movie, it has high stakes, great special effects, the acting is perfect, the ending is satisfying and leaves you wondering. The plot is intense, the characters are cool, and best of all, it is proof that stan lee is the ultimate superhero, b/c this movie is his legacy and will show generations to come what this man achieved. When people say movies like "Ash is the purest white" is better, they're not considering how that's a movie that will be deposited and forgotten over time. This on the other hand, will be remembered for the symbol of hard work. They won their spot as 2nd highest grossing film w/ good reason, and this is my favourite movie I have ever seen.

July 21, 2019: a new record is broken. Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time beating Avatar. Yes. Avengers: Endgame is another milestone in history as the death of cinema.

I just watched it and it was a spectacular masterpiece. I loved every minute of it, from the amazing acting to the spellbinding visuals to the emotion to the fantastic comedic moments. It is definitely a fantastic ending for the Avengers movies and one of the best Marvel has to offer.
I have one question though: Where can Marvel go from there? - PhoenixAura81

We'll find out with Spider-Man: Far From Home. Hopefully something good. - codgtamk34

2 Toy Story 4

This movie was better than it had any right to be. I, alongside with pretty much everyone, had the same reaction when Toy Story 4 was announced. "Why?! Toy Story 3 ended so perfectly! Why would they want to ruin that?! "

Toy Story 3 was a perfect ending - for the toys relationship with Andy. There was still a lot more to tell in the story of Woody and the rest of the toys. Toy Story 4 gives a great conclusion to the story of one of the greatest protagonists in animation in Woody. This was a great ride with the same characters we grew up with and plenty of great and funny new characters. This movie is just heartwarming with so many feel-good moments. It's a mixture of comedy and drama that Pixar and the Toy Story franchise in particular has mastered over the years. This was just a great overall movie that hopefully concludes the greatest animated movie series ever. You can always count on Pixar to deliver with Toy Story. - phillysports

If some one says this is the best toy story movie I will laugh at the person it does while it's a good movie its nothing compared to the other 3 movies - WWEWBMortalKombatFan

Not as good as Toy Story 1 or 3, but I still really enjoyed it! I loved the characters, the animation looked amazing, and it was so heartwarming! It's a must watch! 10/10. - Gametoon

Good. I didn't want the Godzilla: King of the Monsters incident to happen all over again. - Gametoon

I have to say that the Toy Story 3 ended perfectly, now they have put no. 4.! - BloodFang

3 Spider-Man: Far from Home

I loved this movie! Acting was incredible! All the editing and CGI looked incredible! And ANY movie with TOM HOLLAND in it is one that I am going to LOVE!

Better than Endgame without question. It's all the action, humor, and great characters we've come to love from Marvel without overloading the T.V. screen with 30 superheroes fighting one cheesy villain. Far from Home is a great post endgame story, and the first credit scene was a phenomenal crowd pleaser!

I liked it slot but the end scene was so funny, so many people are happy that they brought back... I forgot his name. - SkyFeather

A great epilogue to Avengers: Endgame. Maybe it's slightly better than Homecoming in my opinion, but my favorite Spider-Man film is still Spider-Verse. - codgtamk34

4 Godzilla: King of the Monsters

This movie was epic. The critics are dumb. They hate this because it isn't the next godfather and citizen Kane. It's Godzilla its very great to watch Godzilla and monsters fight and the movie easily has great cgi probably a one of the best of the decade, - Dvafan2

I wouldn't compare this movie to the Godfather nor Citizen Kane. They're 3 different things. But as much as I love the hell out of this movie. I honestly compare this to The Dark Knight for several reasons. - asantalo

This was absolutely cool and I should ignore what the critics just said.

Yea, I think the movie is good but people around the world are just haters. - Tyyler

The only reason endgame was higher than this because that was a buildup of 21 movies. If endgame didn't come out the same year this did, I am certain this would be number 1 - wren6

5 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Great film. This is underrated and that is final. Home is Overrated, not this. This film is better than DreamWorks Home and Illumination's The Grinch. This film is a masterpiece.

Best animated film of 2019.

Fantastic ending to a fantastic trilogy. - JPK

This is the best movie I have seen all year. Great way to end the franchise Dreamworks.

6 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the first Tarantino movie that I have ever been able to see in theatres, and in my opinion, it's up amongst his very best projects. Compared to his other films, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is much more laidback, relaxed, and doesn't contain much tension or threat other than the fact that it takes place in 1969, and that Sharon Tate and the Manson Family are involved in the story. The film is essentially a love letter to 1960s Hollywood and there is such an undeniable atmosphere and chilled feeling that causes you to get lost inside the world that Tarantino has recreated. It's a little drawn out at points but the screenplay and direction are so sharp that it hardly makes a difference. Leonardo DiCaprio delivers one of his greatest performances ever in a career filled with great performances, Brad Pitt is his normal charming and charismatic self, and Margot Robbie (despite not being as a big of a part of the movie as you may think) gives a heartfelt ...more - phillysports

The most underrated best movie of 2019 this movie should be higher top 5

Better than every other movie on here

Best of the year

7 John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum is the best movie I ever watched. Sorry to those fans who enjoyed Avengers: Endgame but this deserves more praise because of the work delivered by Keanu Reeves as well as Mark Dacascos. It's purely a violent blood bath which I definitely don't like of course and the story needed to be more adjusted and understandable since I've watch the sequel. Most of the stunts were real as well as Keanu Reeves being the typical badass and arming himself with the available weapons around him. After all, this movie puts more action and less melodramatic rubbish. I didn't want to have emotional attachment to any film and Endgame went too far with that because of the fanbase. All I wanted to do was to watch a movie and not get overly attached with it and this is what John Wick Chapter 3 does right.

This movie was the best movie I've ever watched

Best action movie I've watched this year

Pure action at its finest with an engaging story with memorable characters! Definitely the number one movie of the year and one of the best action movies of all time!

8 IT Chapter Two

Highly entertaining to watch, with perfect casting and a satisfying conclusion to a great story. - BurnAux

Definitely the most hyped up movie, and rightfully so! - OpticalBait

Better than captain marvel. - Dvafan2

This deserves to be in the top 10.

9 Us

This movie got a LOT of hate from audiences, but I feel the only reason is because people didn't understand the ending or literally any of the symbolism that was all over this film. I don't think it was as good as Get Out but it was still great. - Mcgillacuddy

I personally enjoyed it. Sure it may not be as great as Get Out, but it's still a must see if you loved that film. - codgtamk34

Jordan Peele just beat the sophomore slump. Us is much more of a pure horror film while Get Out was always more of a satirical thriller/dark comedy in my opinion. And while this movie still has plenty of funny moments and lines, it is much more disturbing than Peele's previous outing. Us is a movie that is brilliantly directed that explores the interesting but horrifying theme of ourselves being our own worst enemies. Each member of the cast gives a brilliant performance in their duel role (especially Lupita Nyong'o who needs to be nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars next year) as the film undergoes many twists and turns. I literally said "Oh. My God." and had my mouth wide open at the ending. Us is a movie that is interesting and entertaining on both a surface-level slasher film level and an intellectual filmmaking and thematic level. The movie just oozes ambition and can be interpreted in so many different ways. And while Get Out is the better movie in my opinion, Us is still a ...more - phillysports

Good but disapponting, nowhere near as good as the original. - iliekpiez

10 Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Totally loved this, besides having a good story and excellent CGI, it brought back memories of me watching Pokemon for the first time.

I hate hearing the annoying Ryan Reynolds voice come out of Pikachu's mouth. Ruining and making my childhood disturbing. - RobertWisdom

This movie was so funny and great. Ryan Reynolds was so funny like in deadpool movies. The movie is awesome. It's a must see if your a fan of pokemon. - Dvafan2

Hey you like ugly CGI pokemon? IF YOU DO WATCH THIS because I don't._.

13 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

How is this not higher I can't believe this is 12th has anybody seen the new star wars trailers. The first trailer had the laugh of emperor palpatine and the second trailer had rey with a double bladed lightsaber! This should easily be in the top ten.

Anakin Skywalker: *kneels*
Sith Lord: Rise.
Anakin Skywalker: *stands*


Please let this franchise die already!

It isn't even out yet

14 Captain Marvel

She deserves what happens to her in avengers endgame. I'm not gonna tell but everyone should have seen it by now - Naiolmaih

She crashed through huge space ships twice! She busted through Thanos's roof and got her hands around his neck in less than ten seconds, and had Thanks in the final right until he used the power stone and saves THOUSANDS of planets! SHE IS AAWESOME!

Way better than people make it out to be. Sure, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel wasn't great, but I found the movie enjoyable overall. - Gametoon

Good Movie! Captain Marvel and Brie Larson get too much hate! - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

15 Alita: Battle Angel

I saw this movie and it is so underrated. It was fantastic! It has everything I want in an anime live-action adaption and it's a James Cameron movie, so... he didn't let me down. The story may be unoriginal, but it's heartwarming. Robert Rodriguez had a fantastic direction with this movie. The score was also fantastic. The characters are so lovable and relatable, the CGI is fantastic and is accurate to the manga, and the biggest highlight of this movie is the action. The action scenes are so incredible and so badass. I forgot to mention that this is visually stunning. The plot is the weakest in the franchise because it may be unorignal, but the story is actually good. Overall, I'll give this a 9/10.

What I am disappointed about is the fact that the critics gave this a low score and I don't get why. It's even lower than Ghost in the Shell. Anyway, just ignore the critics. I had the same feeling towards this with other movies like The Greatest Showman, Venom, Glass, etc. Alita ...more

This movie should be number 1. It has the best visual effects. It has great fight scenes. James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez made a masterpiece. All the characters except the guy who kills the dog are likable especially alita. The critics are wrong as well. They think alita is a awful movie. Easily the best anime movie ever made and best sci fi movie and best movie ever made. Overall a 10/10 - Dvafan2

How can this be below Captain feminist?

It's too cheesy. That Alita's lover dies, gets revived, dies again. - TriggerTrashKid

16 The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Get this above Detective Pikachu. Seriously.

Geez, lighten up a little, people. It's actually a really funny movie. Yes, the original is better, but this one is pretty danged close.
PS-This is actually my second favorite movie of the year-my favorite is Endgame but that's first already and this REALLY needs a boost.

No just no. This movie Will be awful. Just a cash grab made for toys and merchandise. This list is just superhero and big blockbuster movies. But this movie seems pretty bad. The jokes and comedy in the trailers feel more forced than they were in the Lego Batman and Lego Ninjago movies! Every time Lego movies get worse by installment. I rare them like this, First Lego Movie was 8/10, Lego Batman 4/10, And Lego Ninjago 3/10. I'm expecting a 2 or 3/10 from this movie for me. - B1ueNew

Pretty good - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

17 Batman: Hush

Whoa people. This movie has a completely different feel from the other batman movies. I never thought the day would come where I would Aw at batman, but that's exactly what happened here. The movie was a little eh sometimes, but the fact that we finally get to see batman experience things that don't make him brood, scowl, or punch people in the face was just amazing. Also, Selina Kyle people! I don't know why I got so attached but the ending kinda crushed my heart

It is based off the graphic novel. I might see it, but still I love Mask of the Phantasm and The Killing Joke (just Killing Joke, not that Batgirl prequel that feels like a separate film). - asantalo

18 Rocketman

It doesn't suck. It's fantastic!

BEST MOVIE of 2019 so far. I absolutely LOVED it.

I L.O.V.E. this movie. I have always been a fan of WWE and Pagie is my favorite.

Loved it. its very inspirational but yet underrated. - Yoshiandaglover

20 Arctic

The most underrated film that I've seen in 2019, and I think that people should see this movie for its craft and simplicity displayed. Arctic is on my radar for being one of those great survival films. - BurnAux

Great film - iliekpiez

21 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Get this above Captan Marvel and Rise of the Sky Walkers. This movie is awesome! - TheDarkOne_221b

Should be in the top ten. - RadioHead03

Very fun. - JPK

One of the best, if not the best from the Fast & Furious franchise. Not really a movie expert, but it’s a great movie. Definitely top 10 worthy. - Userguy44

22 Good Boys

The funniest film that I've seen in 2019. It has a surprisingly sweet story and well-played characters. - BurnAux

23 The Lion King

Well, well, well Disney. It's just another remake no one asked for. I can't believe Disney only cares money and look at how much the 2019 remake earned at the box office: over 1.5 billion dollars! Alright, then. Let's look at how the 2019 version of The Lion King turned out, shall we?!

For the actors, James Earl Jones made a return as Mufasa and it sounded less intimidating and expressive than it was in 1994. Chiwetel Ejiofor played a dull version of Scar unlike Jeremy Irons from Die Hard with a Vengeance sounded more intense in the 1994 animated classic. And of course, Donald Glover failed to impress audiences with his voice acting as Simba. Really? I actually liked Matthew Broderick from Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Inspector Gadget who did an impressive job as Simba. Nothing can top those original actors from the original version.

The plot is just copy and paste with new dialogue, cgi, and actors. It is just the same plot. So predictable.

Plus, the special ...more

Never. They are useless products made for money only. It's also dumb they push back original movies. - Gametoon

Seriously? Lion King should be higher. It's actually the second fastest growing movie in the box office

This is great for anyone who hasn't seen the original. Try this first. Though the acting could be weak a few times. - TriggerTrashKid

24 A Dog’s Way Home

When I saw this movie, I went into the theatres to see it with my friend, and she loves dogs, and by the trailer it looked like it was gonna be all smiles!
When the film first started, I was already intrested in the premis. It takes place in Denver Colorado, which is wear I lay in bed at this very moment, and the whole Pitbull incident is actualy a real problem, Ik, it's terrible.
So about half way through the movie, this homeless guy dies, but a few minutes before his death, the narrator of Bella goes, "He never let me go hungry, even though he was starving."
Darn! We should have known that the creator of "A Dogs Purpose" can pull that off.
And with final breath, the man says, "Your a good dog Bella... a good dog..."
At this point, I lean over to my friend, and she cried all the way until we got home, and she was heartbroken! This movie was good though!

Watched a part of it and it looked adorable and sweet - SkyFeather

Just watched it. This needs to be at least in the top ten! it's really sweet and adorable. It is, in my opinion, the best film of 2019! either this or that upcoming avengers movie

25 Happy Death Day 2U

I’m a sucker for theses types of movies. Killer reveal was underwhelming, otherwise I really liked it. Understandably not for everyone. Also “sucks” is not a relevant comment to the film. Give some reasoning. - Yoshinaruto

I loved the original as a kid and I really wanted to like this remake and I ended up becoming obsessed with it the cast, the songs, the characters, the universe, it was perfect to me

This was terrible! - RobertWisdom

I watched the movie today, and, it's such an amazing and incredible movie. For me, it's the best live version of a Disney classic and I just loved the movie so much - ivylee

The Shaun the Sheep Movie was one of the funniest films from Aardman. I trust that they can handle this because Shaun the Sheep didn't only have a great movie, but even the T.V. show was hilarious. - Mcgillacuddy

33 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

I thought this could be good. We’ll see. I do enjoy the first Maleficent movie. Fun fact, the first film and the first American MonsterVerse Godzilla came out in 2014. And their sequels came out in the same year (2019) with their tagline names (King of the Monsters and Mistress of All Evil). There is NO COINCIDENCE! It’s just mind blowing. - asantalo

40 Missing Link

This movie was terrible no wonder why this flopped - Dvafan2

It was decent, but Laika's worst - iliekpiez

Laika, a studio that made stop-motion masterpieces (Coraline, ParaNorman, Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings) is up for a fifth movie!
I saw the trailer, and it seems Laika's stop-motion tech has enhanced once again. The story and characters are already looking interesting, flawed, and unique, with their own backstory,
Laika always value a deep, original and moving story, so why shouldn't this one be great?

41 Wonder Park

Oh yes! I love this movie! I know it gets a lot of hate, but for Nick and Paramount, this was great! The animation is very beautiful and to be honest, none of the characters grated on my nerves. It's sweet, vibrant, and gives kids the chance to leave reality and into their own imaginable world. Don't kill me when I say this, but I would take this movie over Endgame any day!

Movie that had it's potential completely wasted. - JPK

This movie sucks.

Best movie of 2019, without a doubt. It received the Palme d'Or at the Cannes festival and it was ABSOLUTELY deserved.
