Top Ten… Fave Films of 2019

For someone who writes a movie blog, I have been woefully poor at watching films this year, missing out on some critically acclaimed films such as Ad Astra, Le’ Mans 66 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Even when I’ve turned to Netflix to get my movie fix, I’ve not watched the widely anticipated…
