I spend a lot more of my time looking for movies I want to see these days, so admittedly I was able to dodge a lot of awful films in 2019. With the abundance of avenues to new movies it’s nearly impossible for one person to view it all, so out of the movies I was able to catch in 2019, these are five of the absolute worst that were unleashed on movie goers and movie buffs. Excluded but genuinely considered for the list were The Reliant, Men in Black: International, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Netflix’s Rim of the World, The Haunting of Sharon Tate, Long Shot, Kiss Kiss, and Dark Phoenix.

A Message for Readers for the Holidays

The holidays can be a joyous time, a time where we can celebrate our year and be with our families. We pig out, we indulge in gifts, and we also reflect on our successes and failures. But for many it can be a very tough time. It’s a time where we still grieving the ones we’ve lost, are reminded of those we love that couldn’t be here to enjoy the holidays with us. For those people out there that don’t see the holidays as a joyous time and think they need some serious help, we know how it feels.

There’s absolutely no shame in getting help and seeking counseling from a professional in times of great stress and or pain. Especially when you have to endure Christmas, and or Hanukkah. It’s okay to not be happy during the holidays, it’s okay to be in pain and it’s okay to admit that you need help, and you need help from someone who can remind you that life is worth living and this too, shall pass.

No matter what happens in your life, you deserve good health. You deserve to have peace of mind. You matter. You’re wanted. People care about you. Most of all, you’re not alone. Not in the world, and not in suffering.

If you’re contemplating suicide please consider the Suicide Prevention Hotline, right now.

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Fun Festivus for the Rest of Us, and Happy New Year!

Thanks for another wonderful year from Cinema Crazed.
