Howard's 2019 Movie Rankings

This is a ranked list of the movies I've seen in 2019. I've ranked them according to how much fun I had in the theater, which is a fantastically subjective exercise that is not uncommonly at odds with how well a movie does what it's trying to do. 

I've been reviewing films this way for nine years now, and as I've said in previous years (201020112012201320142015, 2016, 2017, 2018) I often lose track of just how much "fun" something was when comparing it to something I saw later in the year. It's not just subjective, it's inaccurate.

This year I've fallen behind a bit in trips to the cinema, which means the list is shorter. Also, the list didn't go up as a proper list until August. I could list all the reasons why, but let's list movies instead.
