Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

We’re back! And for our first podcast of the new decade, we’re looking at all the films of the year that’s just wrapped up. From the big Disney blockbusters to the other big Disney blockbusters to the modestly successful films that Disney had nothing to do with; from the most impenetrable art films to the most warmly satisfying crowd-pleasers; from lighthouse keepers’ semen to Mr. Rogers’ cardigans, we’re sharing our picks for the top 5 films of 2019. Plus, we’ll be talking about the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards, reflecting on our predictions for the films of fall 2019, and maybe even making some new predictions for the unsullied expanse of 2020 stretching out in front of us.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover CatsUnderwater and Light of My Life.
