Because I don't know will the movie be good or bad, so I have left a "short" comment to the description area when i have seen the movie and I'll tell you if it was good or not.

Votes: 178,057 | Gross: $211.59M

Liked. Really good sequel. However, I missed more of the horror and thrill. The role straightings were, of course, perfect. A bit stranger and more imaginative than the first movie.

2. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019)

PG | 104 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

Director: Justin Baldoni | Stars: Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Moises Arias, Kimberly Hebert Gregory

Votes: 34,615 | Gross: $45.73M

Liked. What i love about this film was that it does not contain unnecessary drama, cause their lives are already dramatic enough. I was not completely satisfied with how the movie ended, it would have needed something more. Maybe a little pieces of how life started to roll after everything--

4. The Mustang (2019)

R | 96 min | Drama

77 Metascore

The story of Roman Coleman, a violent convict, who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program involving the training of wild mustangs.

Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre | Stars: Matthias Schoenaerts, Jason Mitchell, Bruce Dern, Gideon Adlon

Votes: 8,210 | Gross: $5.04M

Liked. Story was genuine and slow moving, very cold and stiff, but there was so much feelings behind all the expressions and actions. I'm not a horse person, but somehow i always end up watching "a horse movies"

5. Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

PG-13 | 100 min | Comedy, Horror, Mystery

57 Metascore

Votes: 49,925 | Gross: $28.05M

Liked Even though I prefer the first movie more, this alone, was a good, not that scary, but entertaining horror still. Much more complicated story, but keeps the tension alive all the time.

Director: James Kent | Stars: Keira Knightley, Ned Wills, Pandora Colin, Jason Clarke

Votes: 15,030 | Gross: $1.62M

liked and not. I wanted this to be better. I love Keira, and her movies are always been very good. And she was good in this too, all the actors were, but the plot was just going a dull line, and it didn't gave me nothing in return. The film was somehow distant and short.

8. Share (I) (2019)

R | 87 min | Drama, Mystery

73 Metascore

Director: Pippa Bianco | Stars: Rhianne Barreto, Charlie Plummer, Poorna Jagannathan, J.C. MacKenzie

Votes: 1,443

Liked. Even tho I gave this only 5 star, It had its moments, and potential. Story was interesting, but it needed a lot of filling. The dialogues were tight-lipped, which I immediately realized that they helped stretch the film a lot. And that's not the way to do film.

9. The Society (2019– )

TV-MA | 58 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi

When everyone else mysteriously vanishes from their wealthy town, the teen residents of West Ham must forge their own society to survive.

Stars: Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo

Votes: 15,560

Liked. Very strange series, but in a good way. Characters, a most of them are really well written, and you just start to love them. But the real reason why events happen, or what happened, that progress very slowly, as if they had given up or forgotten to find the reason.

10. Tolkien (2019)

Liked. Camera work was heavenly, every single piece and scene was like it own little unique movie. Beautiful film, really beautiful! Dome Karukoski is like a Finnish version of Christopher Nolan.

Stars: Riley Shanahan, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Alan Tudyk

Votes: 25,015

Liked and then im not so sure...

I don't know why, but I just couldn't keep watching this. I lost my focus (got to the first two episodes than i decided to be done) Maybe I wasn't on the right mood or something, BUT series seemed quite good, fun and action based. I think if you really like superhero stuff and are looking for something new and fun, this is for you.

Votes: 5,635

Liked. I admit I was skeptical. I knew that I will take a look at something a little more unique, weird and stupid, but I'm always interested in such. Let's just say I got stuck watching how the story progress. After a while I noticed that I was watching the whole movie. At no point it didn't get too strange, but it was just that kind of peculiar. I couldn't guess what happens next. The scenes were nicely tasted with humor.

Director: Bill Condon | Stars: Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, Russell Tovey, Jim Carter

Votes: 16,244

Not liked. I was waiting for action. There was intrigue, but no excitement. A bit disappointing, maybe frustrating that I watched the whole movie because it was nothing short of amazing. Veteran Actors Helen and Ian were the only stars in the movie, because the script was a bit flimsy.

18. Zombieland: Double Tap (2019)

Votes: 735

Liked Oh man! What. A. Show! The plot was kinda meh...sweet but not the star of the movie. It was the movie itself, i mean if you really pay attetion to how the camera moved, and how the movie was directed you really get more out of it. I've watched lot of dance movies i think, and this was something quite fresh. Maybe cuz it was french?

24. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

Votes: 67,558 | Gross: $113.93M

Liked and not. Good, but useless sequel. Similar activities and so on... I don't really know what else to say. I really enjoyed the first movie, but I just didn't warm up to this one. Cute ending tho!

25. Charlie's Angels (2019)

Director: Elizabeth Banks | Stars: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Elizabeth Banks

Votes: 41,242

Hmm...liked and...Not? Okay, let's make this clear right away. Not up to the simplicity of action that old Charlie Angels had. Wondering here...Why make everything so complicated these days? Too much intrigue and unnecessary talking.

Not a bad movie alone. It's average. The cast is average good. And I'm not saying I didn't enjoy what I was looking at, I just a little bit lost my focus.

26. Playing with Fire (I) (2019)

PG | 96 min | Comedy, Family

24 Metascore

A crew of rugged firefighters meet their match when attempting to rescue three rambunctious kids.

Director: Andy Fickman | Stars: John Cena, Keegan-Michael Key, John Leguizamo, Tyler Mane

Votes: 7,762

Not Liked. Okay..I watched the movie or should I say I left it rolling on the background and focused only on certain points. It's a reasonable, light, entertaining and fun movie for the whole family, but too cumbersome for someone who wants to see... you know...art rather than fooling around.

27. Little Women (2019)

Director: Sam Mendes | Stars: Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, Daniel Mays, Colin Firth

Votes: 316,679 | Gross: $159.23M

Liked a lot. I enjoyed. So much. Not as warlike as I thought. More of a drama, with pieces of war.

The movie has been made to look like its been filmed in just one shot. Some may find it boring because the main characters don't talk much, and it's like following someone's morning routines without breaks and so on. Everything is on camera, every movement, look and word. We're talking about a war movie, so basically there's always something going on. Physically or mentally to the characters.

I don't wanna give much away. Let's just say that I felt a lot of things while watching this and that is exactly what a movie should give.

29. Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Director: Taika Waititi | Stars: Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi

Votes: 218,309 | Gross: $0.35M

Liked. So endearing, sad, funny and serious. I can't stand how wonderfully stimulating this movie was. A surprising too! The movie went through the basic Nazi stuff, of course, and what happens to the Jews and whoever helps them, we know these, we've seen thousands of war movies related to them. But nothing like this. This is not even a war movie, this is a comedy with drama.
