We awarded 14 monstas for the best pop, theatre, TV and film of 2018 in December – and here we look at the cream of 2019 so far and what’s to come. Amy, The Pass, God’s Own Country and The Happy Prince are previous winners in this category.
- Read on for our top 5 best films of 2019 so far and our hopes for the rest of the year
- Booksmart Review
We said: ‘So whipcrack-smart and hilariously funny that it’s likely to become a future classic and is undoubtedly 1 of the most brilliant films of the year.’
2. Can You Ever Forgive Me?
We say: ‘Melissa McCarthy is cast against type as forger Lee Israel who develops an unlikely friendship with a character played by Richard E. Grant who reminds of his outrageous turn in the classic comedy Withnail And I.’
3. Mary Poppins Returns Review
We said: ‘Definitely a film fans of musical theatre will take to their hearts.’
4. Rocketman Review
We said: ‘We predict it will next appear as a rocket-fuelled musical in the West End. Out of this world.’
5. Wild Rose Review
We said: ‘It’s a pleasure to watch such a challenging film with 3 complicated female characters at its heart where elements of the story that may have once seemed traditional (the 1st thing Rose does when she leaves jail is to find someone to sleep with) are turned on their head because of her gender .’
On our radar for the next 3 months are Judy (Trailer), The Good Liar (Trailer), Joker (Trailer), Charlie’s Angels (Trailer), Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (Trailer), Little Women (Trailer) and Cats (Trailer).
