The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2019

Greatest Movie Moments of 2019

We don’t always remember entire movies – we remember the moments. We recall that one glorious shot. We think of that telling glance, that hilarious one-liner, that shocking action scene. Heck, we sometimes remember a great moment from a bad movie more often than an entire competent movie. And with another year in cinema behind us, it’s time to look back. We’re finally and officially closing the book on 2019 with our look at the most moving, most funny, most thrilling, and most baffling moments from the previous year in cinema.

Note: This post contains major spoilers for dozens of movies released in 2019. Proceed with caution.

Oscar Snubs 2019

With typically only five nominees per category, someone is always bound to be left by the wayside when the Oscar nominations arrive. 2020 is no different. But with the snubs also come the surprises – the films, filmmakers, and actors who no one expected to land a nomination suddenly find themselves invited to the biggest awards ceremony Hollywood has to offer.

We’ve combed through this morning’s nominations and have put together a list of the biggest snubs and surprises from the latest batch of nominations. How much outrage you decide to bring to this list is up to you.

/Film’s Top 15 Movies of 2019

Best of 2019

Over the past week, we have published individual Top 10 Movies of 2019 lists for each member of the /Film staff. And behind the scenes, we’ve been crunching the numbers to determine a list that represents the site as whole, with all of our most treasured films from the past year featured.

And while not every beloved film made our final Top 15 of 2019 list (The Lighthouse missed it by this much!), we feel that the movies below not only represent the site’s overall tastes, but also what a tremendous year for cinema 2019 really was.

(Welcome to Now Scream This, a column where horror experts Chris Evangelista and Matt Donato tell you what scary, spooky, and spine-tingling movies are streaming and where you can watch them.)

Matt: Wow, we did it. We witnessed the 2010s flip to 2020s and can someday tell our grandkids. I’m not one for resolutions, yet the passing of an entire decade makes me want to look forward to betterment at least a wee bit. That’s why I suggested this first “Now Scream This” of a brand new era be about films neither myself nor Chris have seen but will rectify by 2021. Plus I was anticipating my New Year’s Day hangover and didn’t think my analytical wits would be about myself, which, low and behold here we are!

Chris: Happy New Year, I guess! I started off the New Year in a fairly positive mood, and then the entire world went to hell on the second day. But hey, that’s what horror movies are for – escaping the nightmares of the real world for the nightmares of the cinema. In the spirit of trying new things, Matt and I are changing the column up this week and picking movies we haven’t seen, but plan on finally watching this year.

Last week, the /Film team gathered for a surprisingly intense conversation about the best television shows of the past decade. The one rule: the show had to have premiered between 2010 and 2019 (sorry, Breaking Bad and Mad Men). When the smoke cleared, there were 25 shows remaining, along with five battered and bruised runners-up.

Here are the staff’s favorite shows of the past 10 years.

Our 15 Favorite Movie Moments of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

The /Film team has been busy ranking the 100 best movies of the decade, but one thing became clear as we assembled our lists: there was something missing. Sure, those films were the best of the past ten years, but they didn’t account for many of the individual scenes that have truly stuck with us. Sometimes, a flawed movie or simply a very good movie can leave a lasting impression or feature a character or performance or sequence that lodges itself in our mind and will not leave. So welcome to the list that celebrates that.

This is not a list of the best films of the past decade (although there is some crossover). This is a list of the singular moments that, for one reason or another, defined our personal relationship with the past ten years of cinema.  Read More »
