Cam’s Last Year Movie Rankings

It’s always fun to take a look at my rankings from last year and see how they held up. Here’s how I ranked every movie from last year’s nominees (except the Docs and Shorts):

1. Jojo Rabbit

2.) “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” and “Little Women” TIED

3.) Bombshell

4.) Knives Out

5.) Parasite

6.) Marriage Story

7.) Avengers: Endgame

8.) Judy

9.) The Two Popes

10.) The Irishman

11.) Frozen II

12.) 1917

13.) Pain and Glory

14.) I Lost My Body

15.) Joker

16.) Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

17.) Toy Story 4

18.) Rocketman

19.) Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

20.) Harriet

Movies Below This Line Are Trash, IMO, and I Hate Them

21.) Ford v Ferrari

22.) A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

23.) The Lighthouse

24.) Richard Jewell

25.) Klaus

26.) How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

27.) Ad Astra

28.) The Lion King

28.) Missing Link

29.) Breakthrough

Before we go any further, I have to admit that “Parasite” definitely deserved to be above “Bombshell”, which was perfectly forgettable. But the political climate made “Bombshell” an impactful movie at the time, which is why it got such a high ranking. I’m still sticking with the “Knives Out” high ranking; that movie is awesome!!!

I am very happy that “Parasite” went on to win best picture, but I’m still sticking by “JoJo Rabbit” as my number one. I would have to say, in hindsight, “Little Women” probably should have gotten the edge over “Once Upon A Time…”

Other things I noted was that “The Two Popes” was so forgettable that, a year later, I couldn’t tell you a thing about it.  Also, the “Joker” was not far enough down the list. It should probably have been at the bottom… well almost bottom.

The two things I’m sure I got right was that “Breakthrough” was propaganda trash, and I still hate “Ad Astra” with a passion of a thousand suns.

I don’t use any one specific way to rank any movie, and my ranking are completely subjective. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
