When i started to look at that list i thought theres no way i've seen any of these obscurities... but i've seen 10 ;)

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.

The only one I haven't seen (yet) is Parasite, but even though I didn't love several of them, I really don't dislike any of those films. I won't rank them, but Moonlight is easily the best for me, with Green Book probably being the weakest of the bunch.

I wouldn't classify any of them as terrible, but the top 3 I enjoyed quite a bit more than the rest.

My top 10 movies of 2019:

1. The Irishman
2. Knives Out
3. Uncut Gems
4. Us
5. Parasite
6. Transit
7. Marriage Story
8. Ford v Ferrari
9. Alita: Battle Angel
10. Booksmart

Haven't Seen: 1917, Dolemite is My Name, Dragged Across Concrete, El Camino, Midsommar, Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood, Rocketman

I suppose the only unusual entry is Alita: Battle Angel. I'm a sucker for sci-fi action/adventure flicks. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which also doesn't have the best reputations here, was one of my favorite movies of 2017, for what it's worth.

That one is playing at my local repertory theater somewhere in the coming months. I got so excited initially when it was announced until I realized it was playing in their "so bad it's great" series and I'm not sure if I want ironic hipsters to spoil my Italian horror fun with their obnoxious laughter.

I kind of agonized once my list was down to 14. But then I just decided, if I could only have one, which would it be? Then kept going, kept going, and cut it off at 10.

These aren't necessarily the "best" comedies (whatever that means) but they are the ones that make me the most happy. Especially something like Trouble With Angels, which I'm not even going to try to separate from nostalgia, but also I rewatched it recently and it's really funny!

I also didn't include The Apartment or The Long Goodbye, which are two of my all-time favorite movies, but I don't think are "laugh-out-loud-funny". Otherwise, I think Harold and Maude is one of the funniest movies ever made (and probably my number 1 favorite movie of all time) but I would have a hard time defending it as a straight up comedy.

Trying to keep the definition of "comedy" as strict as possible, trying to avoid films that lean more into other genres...

The Big Lebowski
The Nice Guys
Liar Liar
Dr. Strangelove
There's Something About Mary
Zoolander
Clerks
National Lampoon's Vacation
The Naked Gun
Spaceballs


That is in no order. I had a rough time cutting others, maybe more recent ones that I really like (What We Do in the Shadows, Shaun of the Dead, Dodgeball), but I feel like these are the ones I kinda lean more towards when I want to LOL.

Now, for what it's worth, the other day I was chatting with my brothers, and the topic of good/great comedies came up. Knowing that most of them lean more towards mainstream stuff, this is the list I gave him...

The Nice Guys
What We Do in the Shadows
Return of the Living Dead
Shaun of the Dead
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
The Cabin in the Woods
Dodgeball
Idiocracy
Office Space


I obviously leaned heavily into horror comedies cause the one that primarily asked me is a horror fan, so take from that what you may.

Yeah i just picked ones that made me laugh my nuts off...

Theres some that are great like say... Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Groundhog Day, Bridesmaids, Coming To America etc

But not necessarily side splitting
