The world outside is scary right now, so sit back, relax and take a ride with us through simpler times with our 2019 year in review.
Join us as we look at the best and worst of the year that was, including our biggest disappointments, favourite performances, the most obscure films we watched in 2019, and of course our top five movies of the year.
Why does Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls get a mention in our flashback to 2019? What is the greatest “yarn movie” of all-time? Was Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker better than Heath Ledger’s? What was the biggest cinematic news story of the year? You’ll have to listen to find out!
It’s great to be back, and we thank you for joining us on our journey.
