Great list! I still haven't seen Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Jojo Rabbit only came out in the UK yesterday but I've seen a good chunk of the rest of your list.

Chris said...

Good list! I also have Marriage Story, OUATIH and Toy Story 4 in my top 12.

Have you seen the animated films I Lost My Body (2019) and Klaus (2019)? Both got positive buzz and are on Netflix.

@Brittani-I know what is in your worst list and I'm sure Cats would've been in our worst list if we had seen it but let's be glad we at least value our lives and our sanity instead of watching that bullshit.

@Often Off Topic-Thank you. There's so many films I haven't had the chance to see and a lot of it is due to timing.

@Chris-I haven't seen those films but I've heard good things about them. I'll get to them soon.

Nice list! So happy Ad Astra made the cut. I really appreciated that film.
