The year has come and gone, and we’re still here in the age of streaming, so it’s time to look back at some of the best films from the past year.
We’ve ranked the top movies of the year by genre, by director, and by budget.
We’re looking at a wide range of genres and budgets, and even including some non-genre titles, like The Fifth Element and Mad Max: Fury Road.
We also want to give some shoutouts to films that didn’t make the cut.
As always, we want to thank our subscribers for all of their support in making this list possible.

We hope you enjoy them, and if you have any feedback on what you’d like to see in 2019, let us know in the comments below.
