The Irishman and Once Upon a Time are the only two releases last year I remember seeing that I was very fond of. I honestly barely saw anything new this year at all. Mainly stuffed as many Netflix documentary specials down my gullet as possible.

Wild Wild Country may have been the best new release I saw all year.

Just a reminder that Seymour Cassel was in Star Trek: TNG. Looks like feathered hair will make a comeback in the 2300's.

After that, here's the next 10 spots.

11) Parasite
12) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
13) 1917
14) Marriage Story
15) Knives Out

As usual, I haven't seen a whole lot from this year compared to some other people here, but this was still a very fine year.
