Early on her way to university, Lady Bird (Sawyers Ronan) tries to bring life to her hometown of Sacramento, California in all its forms.  All his relationships go through the wringer.  How she treats her mother (a gorgeous Laurie Metcalfe snatched for the Oscars), how she finds out the truth about her first boyfriend (you will cry) and how she can maintain her best friend.

3.    Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)

The Impossible Series hits the ground running after a five-year hiatus, it seemed impossible, for that dynamic frenzy in another sequel to it.  Now, director Christopher McCarry has done it again with Fallout, finding the plot, the sweet spot of action, will give Tom Cruise another pulse-pounding piece of the movie at the risk of his life.

Ethan Hunt leaves his IMF crew on either side and at the same time returns to scale height at the same time and throws caution towards the wind.  This time the group is following a terrorist group that is planning to detonate three plutonium cores simultaneously around the world.

4.    Cabin in the Woods (2012)

While this isn’t exactly a classic horror movie, this film must have started earlier.  Five friends head out into the woods, ready to party all weekend in a quiet country cabin, completely unaware that they have chosen to take part in any religious sacrifice with a completely wonderful twist and turn, The Cabin in the Woods perfectly keeping you on your toes  Works great.

5.    Honey Boy (2019)

The play follows the life of child actor Otis Lort (Lucas Hedges) as he goes from youth success to an introspective Hollywood star.  The battle for fame and trying to balance the relationship with his abusive alcoholic father (Shia Labiuf) became almost impossible as the bond was broken year after year.  As LeBoff himself writes, this emotional story is richly based on his own life.

6.    Blow The Man Down (2020)


One of the latest additions to Amazon Prime is the even better film coming out this year.  Blow the Man Down sisters Mary Beth (Morgan Saylor) and Priscilla (Sophie Lowe) are following because they collected runs with a dangerous man and tried to do so under the algebra in their own town.  Blow the Man Down has been compared to Fargo for his dark wit, as well as for his impressive performances.

It is also celebrated by critics for its impressive cinematography and direction despite its low budget.  A twisty thriller with lots of style and charm, Blow the Man Down is an indie favorite in early 2020.

7.    The Farewell (2019)

Farewell followed Billy (Aukwafina) because he learned that his grandmother (Zhao Shujan) had very little time left to survive, and travelled to China with the family to spend time with him.  Billy further learns that his grandmother’s terminal diagnosis is being kept a secret from him, a morally neutral decision that is still prevalent in China.

Farewell gave an amazingly textured performance, along with a key performance.  More known for his comedy performances, Aukwafina also gave an impressive performance in his first dramatic character.  The uniqueness of the story, as well as the stunning direction from Wang, combined to create one of the best films of 2019.
