2019 Round Up – Movies And…Rambling Rambles

Finally I have found some time to share my movie list from 2019, I just barely had a chance to type it up, it’s taken me three days or nights to do so! I’ve got some favorites I’ll jot down at the bottom and discoveries that will be shared in full detail elsewhere soon as I can get that written too.

Mommy brain and mommy days sure keep me on my toes and don’t really give me much of a chance to write. But I just spoil myself with baby time, truth be told, so I put my rambling time on the back burner. But, it sure does feel nice to ramble now…type, type, yup yup yup.

In 2019 I got to see 74 movies, that’s between new and re-sees, 56 new movies and 18 re-sees. It’s quality, not quantity, right? I sure did spoil myself with my years of many more movies watched, but as I said I spoil myself with baby raising time now. Near the end of the year the movie watching really fell off, my guy Dave and I did a lot more TV watching, the short format is easier with baby around and she’s not getting the screen time. She’ll have plenty of movies in her future, I’m sure. Yup.

Below is my list of movies seen! I’ll was happy I did get a chance to watch my all time favorite DARKMAN once as a great re-see! So yay!

My favorite movie of new movies was DOLEMITE IS MY NAME. It was just a refreshing happy blast from beginning to end. We did a re-watch of DEADWOOD series (My Guy Dave watched the 2nd-3rd seasons for the first time) and I loved the DEADWOOD movie.

Two of favorite discovery films, oldies but new to me were L’iceberg and ON THE BEACH. A bonus about ON THE BEACH was that it introduced me to the author Nevil Shute and though I haven’t read ON THE BEACH yet, I did read two of his other books; BEYOND THE BLACK STUMP and THE RAINBOW AND THE ROSE and they were both special reads, thanks again Library. (I did read 19 books, that’s a mix of mostly books and then graphic novels.) List below!

ON THE BEACH, tough watch, but so good!

I have watched a bunch of TV this year, and no movie yet, but I will soon enough…movies rule! Yup!
