The Breakdown of the Best of 2019 So Far. . . Sort Of

We recorded what we thought was a really great The Breakdown of the Best of 2019 So Far episode Sunday morning, but unfortunately, we can't post it because technical issues ended up erasing everything we did. The episode is now entirely lost into the abyss. We have decided that it would be too hard to replicate the episode, and besides that, the show takes up a decent amount of time to record. Sadly, we won't have a Best of the Mid Year show this year.

But the good news, is that the show is mostly us bestowing awards to movies and performances, and listing our five favourite movies of the year so far. A lost episode has not stolen our memories, so we can at least present our picks here. You just won't be able to listen to all discussion and meanderings. Once again, we apologize for not being able to post an episode this week. If we get back in the good graces of technology, we will have a new episode next Monday.

Favourite Scene: 'Battle in the Library' - John Wick Chapter 3 - Parabellum (CS)/ 'Final Battle' - Avengers: Endgame (SM)

Best Cameo: Patrick Stewart - The Kid Who Would Be King (CS)/ Keanu Reeves - Always Be My Maybe (SM)

Best Performance: Lupita Nyong'o - Us and Robert Downey Jr - Avengers: Endgame (CS)/ Olivia Wilde - A Vigilante (SM)

Most Delightful Surprise: Escape Room (CS)/ Room for Rent (SM)

Best Underrated/Underseen Movie: Long Shot (CS)/Giant Little Ones (SM)

Worst Picture: The Silence (CS)/The Final Wish (SM)
