It’s a perfect time to recapitulate the greatest cinema moments in 2019. Truth be told, this year was more about some pretty awesome TV shows. Still, we had the fortune to see the Joker, movies like Marvel’s Avengers, the long-awaited Toy Story, Once Upon a Time, and finally, John Wick’s Chapter 3.
However, some genuinely great movies will pass by, and we won’t even notice them. They will never get high ratings on sites like IMDb or RottenTomattos.com. Still, it would be a real shame to miss them, knowing that this kind of filmmaking could be a real treat for true cinema enthusiasts.
