    I honestly couldn't even tell you five movies that are coming out in 2019, let alone five that I'm looking forward to.

    Wow, the year 2019 looks absolutely dire. Absolutely nothing seems to be coming out that year. I had to really struggle to get these films together.

    1. The Irishman (Scorcese)
    2. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood (Tarantino)
    3. John Wick 3: Parabellum (2019)
    4. Hobbs and Shaw (Fast and Furios Spin-Off)
    5. Bond 25.

    Searing for films for this list, I found out that they are making another freaking Shaft remake with Samuel L. Jackson... despite that fact that they already made a Shaft remake back in 2000 with... Samuel L. Jackson (which was thoroughly mediocre). How desperate do they have to be to remake Shaft 2 times with the same actor? Like, they couldn't find a single black guy outside Samuel L. Jackson?

    Your own google machine seems to have broken when you started listing garbage like Top Gun and Star Wars:D

    The 2019 list was a lot easier than I thought it would be:

    1) Avengers 4
    2) Bond 25
    3) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    4) John Wick 3
    5) Terminator 6 with Linda Hamilton retconning everything after T2

    Still waiting for my Citizen Kane remake.

    It was originally going to be number one on my list but then I saw that they were going to CGI-create Edward Furlong's face on somebody because I guess he doesn't really act anymore.

    I guess deep down I was hoping Ed would go all Rocky 4 training montage for this and get a role.
