10 Movies I Want to Finally See in 2019!

Like I mentioned in my “life” goals and my TV-related posts over the last week, I want to take more time to veg out and catch up on films (and shows) in 2019. These are all films I’ve been meaning to watch—whether it’s been for years, or just a few weeks.

1. THOR: RAGNAROK

Based on the tweets I’ve seen, I think I must be part of the only 2% of bisexual people in the world who haven’t seen this film yet. 😂

2. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Again, shocked I haven’t seen this. I used to stay super on top of the MCU films, but haven’t made the time to see the last few!

3. DUMPLIN’

I know this just came out, but I’m still surprised I haven’t watched it yet! (Let’s be honest, I might watch this before 2019 begins.)

4. HALLOWEEN (2018)

I wanted to go see this one in theatres, but it’s tough to find the chance to go when you have a toddler! 😂 So I’ll be checking this one out as soon as it hits Redbox.

5. ARMY OF DARKNESS

As much as I love the Evil Dead franchise, I realized recently that I still hadn’t watched Army of Darkness! I have no idea what to expect based on the snippets I’ve seen, but I’m always excited to see Bruce Campbell in action.

6. CAM

I feel like I’ve heard so many rave reviews about this new Netflix original that I have to watch it immediately.

7. BLUE VALENTINE

I completely forgot this existed until scrolling through the oldest reaches of my Netflix List a few days ago, but now I keep thinking I should watch it, because it must have intrigued me at some point, and it has pretty solid reviews. (Plus… Ryan Gosling.)

8. IT: CHAPTER 2

Do I even have to say anything? Chapter 1 of the reboot was AMAZING and I’m so excited for Chapter 2.

9. PET SEMATARY (2019)

I HAVE NO WORDS, ONLY EXCITE

10. THE LION KING (2019)

The Lion King was my childhood. Period. I can’t wait. ♥ LOOK AT THE PRECIOUS BABY SIMBA, how am I even supposed to cope with him losing Mufasa 😭😭😭

Which of these do you think I should watch first (of those already released)? Are any of these favorites of yours, or do you have any movies you’d like to watch soon?

    Gurl i haven’t seen thor ragnarock too i am part of that two percent. I will start watching more movies next year i hardly watched any this year

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 2:27 pm

      Hahahaha I’m glad I’m not alone at least!! Same, I don’t think I honestly sat through an entire movie from start to finish in this entire year until August, maybe? And even then it was only a couple of movies per month. Good luck to both of us on catching up next year! 😀

  • Reply Louise December 24, 2018 at 9:18 am

    I absolutely adore Ragnarok! I’ve seen it at least 5 times 😂 I really want to see Dumplin’ too. Great choices!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 2:27 pm

      Awww that makes me so happy 😂 I just realized last night that it’s on Netflix now which is so convenient, it’s like the universe is over here nudging me to watch it ASAP! Thank you, Louise!

  • Reply Becca Leighanne (Bex) December 24, 2018 at 10:38 am

    A definite YES for movies 1-4!!!

  • Reply MetalPhantasmReads December 24, 2018 at 11:21 am

    Infinity War is such a crazy movie in the best way 😀 I can’t wait to see what you think of it! Ragnarok had some good parts of it but I think the humor didn’t completely work for me, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 2:30 pm

      Aw, I’m sorry the Ragnarok humor didn’t do so well with you! I have high hopes just because I think the humor has been my favorite part of all of the MCU films I’ve seen so far.

      • Reply MetalPhantasmReads December 26, 2018 at 10:30 am

        It’s all good. It’s still enjoyable for sure. I think with over half the movie being improv, I wasn’t sure how to react to it. But still worth the watch 🙂

  • Reply Kelly Brigid December 24, 2018 at 11:45 am

    Oh, I have to watch Dumplin too! I LOVE Thor Ragnarok tho! It’s honestly one of my favorite Marvel movies now. So in my completely unbiased opinion, I think that should be the first one you watch! Hehe. Lovely list! 🤗

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 2:31 pm

      Dumplin’ looks so precious! And I love the cast. 🙂 Hahaha well conveniently enough, I noticed last night that Ragnarok is on Netflix, so it should be an easy one to prioritize! 😀 Thank you so much, lovely! <3

  • Reply tasya @ the literary huntress December 24, 2018 at 11:53 am

    How do you manage to hold off seeing Ragnarok and Infinity War and avoid all the spoilers? 😂 It’s like a jungle out there 😂 I really want to watch more non-western movie next year, I think it’s really important to pay attention to them (going to write a separate post about the why and some recs soon ahaha!). But of course, I really want to see Dark Phoenix and Endgame next year, they are my most anticipated movies!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 2:32 pm

      I am very good at scrolling very quickly. 😂 Honestly though, I stayed off of social media as much as possible when Infinity War first came out, because I knew I wouldn’t get the chance to see it in theatres and I knew that was when the most spoilers would be posted. My spouse sadly didn’t luck out and got spoiled for a lot of stuff the weekend it released! Boooo. 🙁

  • Reply journeyintobooks December 24, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    Great list I’m also looking forward to It: chapter 2 and Pet Sematary 😀💜💜

  • Reply Whimsically Meghan December 24, 2018 at 4:09 pm

    You’re in for a real treat with Thor. I think that was the funniest Marvel film! 😀
    I just watched Dumplin’ over the weekend. Oh.My.God. you need to watch it, especially if you’ve read the book. So many emotions; I love it! ❤️
    Also Blue Valentine was a good movie. I watched it years ago, and if anything Ryan Gosling is really cute in this (not the best guy, but cute)

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 24, 2018 at 4:34 pm

      Aw, yay! I love the MCU sense of humor so I’m excited for the humor in Ragnarok. 🙂 And I’m also excited for the others, too, of course!

  • Reply Kayla @ Books and Blends December 24, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    You have to watch Dumplin! It was really good!

  • Reply Gel December 24, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    I didn’t really like Thor in his previous movies but Ragnarok changed my mind so you have to go watch it!

  • Reply anhdara13 December 25, 2018 at 11:45 pm

    Thor: Ragnarok was GOOD. Up there with the best of the MCU in my opinion. I’m really looking forward to watching Dumplin’! I’ve just got few other movies to catch up on first.

    I also missed Halloween when it was theatres and I am so disappointed in myself. Can’t wait to watch it though, and Army of Darkness is so good!

    While all these movies are great, mostly excited for Dumplin’ and The Lion King. 🙂

  • Reply Annemieke December 28, 2018 at 1:30 am

    Ragnarok was a lot of fun. And I’m not a thor fan haha. I still have to watch infinity war as well. Ugh. Right with you on it being hard to go to the theatres with a toddler. It is just hard to find time to watch anything mostly haha.

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 28, 2018 at 8:20 am

      I’m excited for Ragnarok! Glad I’m not the only one who hasn’t gotten around to Infinity War yet though lol. Yes it is! In my house, it seems like all we watch is whatever he wants to watch. 😂

  • Reply Ellyn December 28, 2018 at 7:34 am

    *cries* Thor Ragnarok is so good and Infinity War is so overhyped.
    That being said, The Lion King and Dumplin’ both look great!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 28, 2018 at 8:42 am

      LMAO you are the first person I’ve heard call Infinity War overhyped but honestly I don’t doubt it, I tend to go into MCU films with my expectations held at bay because a lot of the ones everyone raves about are the ones I don’t love as much? 😅 Other than Black Panther, of course, because that was worth all the hype to me!

      • Reply Ellyn December 28, 2018 at 9:10 am

        Black Panther is amazing and worth every ounce of hype!
        I love Ragnarok because the director just let the cast go ham and Taika Waititi is hilarious. But yeah, Infinity War is just way too much. It’s one of those movies where I’ll turn up for the first day of release and I’ll watch it at the cinema and I’ll buy the dvd but then I’ll probably never watch it again.

        • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 28, 2018 at 10:34 am

          lmao I wish I didn’t know that feeling on the whole seeing it in theatres, buying it, then never rewatching it. My spouse told me last night he wants to watch IW, and I told him we have to watch Ragnarok first, and then we realized neither of us have seen Civil War (how???) and THEN he told me he’s never seen Winter Soldier, which is… probably my favorite film in the MCU besides Black Panther?! I WAS SHOOK. I didn’t realize he hadn’t seen it. 😂 So now we’re like, okay, we should just binge watch a whole bunch of them…

          • Ellyn December 28, 2018 at 7:25 pm

            Haha, honestly you’re not really missing all tha tmuch, but they are still fun to watch! Ragnarok is amazing, Civil War is skippable (seriously, just watch the trailer or read a summary), Winter soldier… is not my fave but to each their own, I’m glad you like it! Haha, you should do a mini re/watch! Let me know how you go! Also, random but have you seen Spider-Verse?

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 28, 2018 at 8:26 pm

            No, I haven’t seen Spider-verse yet!! I want to so badly but we’re never really able to get to the theatres so I’m probably having to wait for that one to come out on DVD! Have you?

          • Ellyn December 28, 2018 at 8:39 pm

            I saw it the other day and absolutely loved it! It’s worth seeing in the cinema if you can make it, but it’s going to be amazing either way so don’t worry about it!

          • Destiny @ Howling Libraries December 29, 2018 at 2:28 pm

            Oh good!! I’m really looking forward to it!
