2019 Movies

Movies in alphabetical order for each rating under every tier


S-Tier films are looked at as the absolute best of the best. These are movies that I would basically give a perfect score and in my opinion, should be shoo-in’s for the major awards after the year is through. The S means “Super” meaning it’s even better than A-Tier. It’s only for a select few movies and they are all sure to make my Top 10 at the end of the year. Ratings here are 10/10.

1917 – 10/10
Luce – 10/10


A-Tier films are movies that should get serious consideration during awards season. They have a great story, great direction, great acting, and everything else that you could possibly want in a movie. They may not be pure perfection, but they are still a fine piece of cinema that deserves recognition. Ratings vary from 8.5-9.5/10.

The Farewell – 9.5/10
Jojo Rabbit – 9.5/10
The Last Black Man In San Francisco – 9.5/10
The Lighthouse – 9.5/10
Marriage Story – 9.5/10
Avengers: Endgame – 9/10
Frozen 2 – 9/10
Joker – 9/10
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part – 9/10
The Lion King – 9/10
Parasite – 9/10
Spider-Man: Far From Home – 9/10
Toy Story 4 – 9/10
Uncut Gems – 9/10


B-Tier movies are still very enjoyable. While they may lack in a few different places, most of the movie are still great and worth the price of admission. B-Tier will typically have the most movies listed in it’s tier. Ratings vary from 7.5-8.5/10.

Yesterday – 8.5/10
Booksmart – 8/10
Captain Marvel – 8/10
Detective Pikachu – 8/10
Happy Death Day 2U – 8/10
I Am Mother – 8/10
Knives Out – 8/10
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – 8/10
Shazam – 8/10
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – 8/10
Us – 8/10
Ad Astra – 7.5/10
Glass – 7.5/10
Good Boys – 7.5/10


C-Tier movies can be looked at as films that maybe missed the boat in a few ways, but overall still get a thumbs up. Maybe the writing wasn’t great, or it was just a cash grab kind of movie – yet the film was still enjoyable and you don’t regret spending the money or time to watch it. If it comes on TV down the road – you may stay tuned, you may move on – but while the overall movie may be average, there is still something about it you like. Ratings vary from 6-7.5/10.

Hobbs and Shaw – 7.5/10
Isn’t it Romantic – 7.5/10
Long Shot – 7.5/10
Richard Jewell – 7.5/10
Terminator: Dark Fate – 7.5/10
X-Men: Dark Phoenix – 7.5/10
Godzilla: King of the Monsters – 7/10
Alita: Battle Angel – 6.5/10
Fighting With My Family – 6.5/10
The Irishman – 6.5/10
Men in Black: International – 6.5/10
Where’d You Go, Bernadette – 6.5/10
Dumbo – 6/10
Mister America – 6/10
The Hustle – 6/10
The Intruder – 6/10


D-Tier movies are not very favorable. While you don’t want to throw tomatoes at the screen, you’re not really looking forward to the next time you get to watch this film. It’s not that you would give it two thumbs way down, it’s just that you wouldn’t be very enthusiastic to give it a thumbs up. Earning a D in school is still a passing grade, but only barely. Ratings vary from 3-5.5/10.

It Chapter 2 – 5/10
Last Christmas – 5/10
Captive State – 4.5/10
Greta – 4/10
Wine Country – 4/10


F-Tier movies have to be absolutely terrible. Rarely will movies find their way here because typically movies wouldn’t be sent to the big screen if they were truly this bad. If a film finds it’s way here, avoid it at all costs. Ratings vary from 0-2.5/10.

Cats – 2/10
