2019 was a magnificent year for cinema and filmophiles all around the world who couldn’t get enough cinephilia in their in lives.
We here at Tampa News Force watched a majority of the new films in theaters when they came out, but we forgot to review them and share our opinion with you all. So today we are counting down the best films released this year:
10. Adult Minions
This hard R-Rated spin-off sequel to the classic animated film “The Despicable Me” sees the continuation of the minions journey while going about their adult lives. Critics around the world commended the direction and creative liberties taken by the Illumination Entertainment-Unaffiliated team.
9. Wack Panther
While most superhero movies get overlooked by the critics who pass them off as routine explosions-catchphrase-blowouts, we want to give a shout-out to one of the only superhero movies to try something different this year. Also catch the exclusive outtakes reel as our gift to you for the holidays.
“They only love when you win.”Shot – 2019 (Tampa News Force Productions: Micro Films at Rock Brothers)
This heartbreaking tale about the ups-and-downs of adult life showcase the hidden talent and potential of an often overlooked franchise.
