RELATED: The 10 Best ComingSoon Movies of 2019!
1) Deadly Class – Best wishes for my new favorite and unfair short series from 2019. Based on Rick Remender's comic book, Deadly Class is an older killer story set against the backdrop of the late 1980s counterculture. Narrative not only enhances writing and performance, but also unparalleled visuals, including flashback scenes revealed through animated sequences. The program challenged TV standards not only through its diverse cast, but highlighting domestic violence, abuse, sexual abuse, consent issues, drug use, sadness, trauma, the burden of morality, endless violence, death, and much more. more, without ignoring the impact these themes have on young characters. The series was disturbing, funny, crazy, touching, bloody and painful, and it also featured my favorite needle drop of the year during its fifth thrilling episode with Depeche Mode's "To Have And To Hold".
2) Castle Rock Season 2 – The second part of Hulu's horror anthology series, based on Stephen King's work, featured Lizzy Caplan representing iconic hell nurse Annie Wilkes in one of the best performances of the year. The series is fraught with tension, perfect-tempo music tracks, beautiful driving, family traumas, twists, remarkable visuals and an impressive ensemble that masterfully takes on the genre tale. Amazing cameos and subtle symbolism connect Season Two to Season One in unforeseen ways, expanding the tradition of Castle Rock's alternate universe.
3) The Boys – Eric Kripke's disturbingly distorted world, full of richly complex characters, is a bloody, funny, dark, twisted and timely story, unexpectedly full of heart. Led by Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty and Antony Starr as the best Homelander supervillain, the comic book adaptation exploded on the small screen with frantic charm and style, completely without fear of breaking all the rules.
4) Sex Education – Netflix's inclusive teen comedy drama is equally hilarious, exciting and touching as it explores sexuality, LGBTQ + relationships, homophobia, bullying, sexual harassment, discrimination, abortion, complex parent-child relationships, friendships and all. more. . Defective three-dimensional characters struggle to grow, express their true selves, and navigate the complicated world of sex and high school, removing the unapologetic layers of the program.
5) Watchmen – Rooted in dark history, violent racism and generational trauma, Damon Lindelof's ambitious masterpiece honors the groundbreaking graphic novel while continuing the narrative in an intelligent, complicated and relevant series led by the talented Regina King. The production value of the show reaches all levels as the exceptional cast brings almost perfect adaptation to life.
6) Prodigal Son – FOX's new psychological thriller has blown everyone out of the water with his excellent narrative, mysterious flashbacks and completely pleasing cast of characters. The series combines procedural elements with a fascinating line centered on the tormented criminal psychologist Malcolm Bright (which you can't help but protect from the world), played by Tom Payne, formerly The Walking Dead. The tension between Malcolm and his father, serial killer, played by Michael Sheen, always crackles as they face each other on screen, moments we expect to see more by 2020.
7) The Mandalorian – There has never been a more unifying Star Wars experience for dedicated fans and non-fans alike than the Disney live action series, which offers a fresh perspective on the Star Wars universe through new galactic adventures, along with with lots of nostalgic goodies for franchise fans. We all fall in love with Baby Yoda and his new guardian, but aside from everyone's adoration for Pedro Pascal's lovely green kid and bounty hunter, the western space is really fantastic and amazing from the pilot episode until the end of season one. .
8) What we do in the shadows – What we do in the shadows is as close as possible to a perfect comedy series. From the minds of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, who co-directed and co-wrote the classic cult film of 2014 that inspired the series, the story follows vampires living together on Staten Island, bringing the hybrid genre with seemingly effortless intelligence and new life to life. Lovely characters.
9) Your Dark Materials – Based on Philip Pullman's beloved trilogy, this remarkable adaptation is an emotional adventure of slow construction, complete with sinister plots, confused families, found family power, secret organizations, dangerous secrets, and extraordinary beings. Daphne Keen shines like Lyra in the fantastic drama full of sequels and twists that will leave you in awe or in tears.
10) Unbelievable – Based on a true story, Kaitlyn Dever, Toni Collette and Merritt Wever are breathtaking in the limited series of resilient, distressing and moving real crimes made even more tragic by the reality behind the written pages brought to light in the Pulitzer Prize-winning story, An Unbelievable Rape Story, published in ProPublica just like the radio episode This American Life, "Anatomy of Doubt". Unbelievable is a hard and compelling series that convincingly and gracefully sheds light on sexual assault, its victims, and the cost of indifference.
1) The Boys – Amazon's adaptation of Garth Ennis's acclaimed comics captures the full satirical nature of their source material with an update to the modern overcrowded genre. The result is a bloody, well-written, hilarious effort that grabs the viewer's attention from the start and never lets it go. The obvious part of the show's charm is also the squad's cast, with Karl Urban (Star Trek Beyond) being an uncontrollable delight to watch, Jack Quaid (Rampage) acting as a good emotional connection for the insecure audience about the darkness. World starlight and Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones) seeing a story full of heartbreak and strong character development.
2) Watchmen – With source material described as simply impossible to film and author Alan Moore destroying the series before its debut, Watchmen's Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers) sequel is a fascinating watch as it honors its comic roots with a story that expands on equally dark and socially intriguing ideas. With some stellar twists, bows to the fountain and wonderful performances of its cast, this is a carefully crafted drama that proves rewarding for fans of both original comics and novices.
3) Russian Doll – The last few years have seen the revival of the time loop genre, and while Happy Death Day has used it as a turnaround in the slasher genre, Russian Doll has found a way to use it as a starting point for exploring the both genres of dark comedy and existential drama. With writing that deftly balances a tone between total hilarity, introspective drama and compelling mystery, and a truly stellar performance by protagonist and co-creator Natasha Lyonne (American Pie), the series is a fascinating and easy-to-repeat watch.
4) The Mandalorian – Arriving late in the game, the success of Disney + takes what has made the animated Star Wars universe a success and drives it to live action as it helps to further expand the myths of the long science fiction universe. duration without convincing or dishonoring the past. While it was just as easy to follow a formula path for the incumbent bounty hunter, history's decision to focus on its past and the divergence of accepting jobs proves to be an attractive watch that blends into exciting action and, of course, the lovely Baby member of Yoda species.
5) Ramy – Hulu found some new hits this year, but the smartest and most convincing of the group was the comedy series Ramy starring and created by comics Ramy Youssef. Inspired by his own life as a young Muslim in America. Finding a way to explore millennial existentialism from a fresh and refreshing angle, the series is a truly insightful, intelligent and hilarious work that proves that Youssef is as much a talent to watch as Lyonne and Donald Glover (Atlanta).
6) The Umbrella Academy – Dysfunctional families can always be fun to watch, if spelled correctly, but with a bit of superhero imagination and narrative that spans time, Gerard Way's adaptation of The Umbrella Academy's Netflix proved to be a one of the most exciting and intriguing shows of the year. Featuring a stellar array of well-written characters and artists, a captivating narrative, and a wonderful mix of quirky humor and poignant drama, this is one of the best comic adaptations the small screen has ever seen.
7) What we do in the shadows – Bringing a movie to the small screen is never an easy task, with some finding the sweet spot, like Lethal Weapon and Westworld, while others miss the mark, like Rush Hour and Minority Report, but this year saw one of the best efforts yet with what we do from FX in the shadows. Acting as a complementary effort to its acclaimed 2014 film source of the same name rather than an adaptation, the series benefits from seeing the source's co-writer / co-director Jemaine Clement return as creator, which helped maintain the proper tone and mood of the movie. resulting in a hilarious effort that is worth several views and features a number of cameos.
