As we know, 2020 is around the corner and we are expecting to have a lot of great film releases. But there are some movies in 2019 that may have not got the credit that they deserve. With all the “hype” of superhero movies out there, people may forget about the little guys. But us here at “Hypefresh” will give you a list of 3 great movies, you might have missed, that came out in 2019. Make sure to watch these hidden gem movies before 2020 rolls in with more blockbusters.
UNO/NUMBER 1: LITTLE MONSTERS (2019)
With a great cast of A-list Hollywood stars, Little Monsters have a-lot to offer. And no, I’m not talking about the movie Little Monster starting Fred Savage and Howie Mandel. But 2019’s release staring Lupita Nyong’o from US and Josh Gad from Frozen. This movie was definitely slept on in 2019. Also, if you like zombie movies and comedies then this movie may be a go for you.
Little Monsters is about a kindergarten teacher played by Lupita Nyong’o; who has to protect her students from a zombie outbreak while on a field trip. While escaping the clutches of zombies, Lupita is helped by a foul-mouthed, washed-up musician name Dave, played by Alexander England. Little Monsters does a great job blending horror and comedy. In addition, a great movie to watch while chest-nuts is roasting on the open fire. Little Monsters is now on Hulu to watch with Subscription and on Amazon prime for purchase.
DOS/Number 2: JoJo Rabbit
Outside of Scarlett Johansson and Rebel Wilson, JoJo Rabbit does not have that many superstar names that ring bells or are house-hold names. However, that doesn’t mean that this is a movie that you should miss out on. JoJo Rabbit is tragicomedy (Tragedy and comedy mix) about a boy name Johannes Betzler a.k.a Jojo, that lives in Nazi Germany during World War II. Jojo is apart of the Nazi’s boy youth Club called Deutsches Jungvolk, that train young youths, ages 10-14 on Nazi Ideology.
Johannes, a.k.a Jojo, later finds out that his mother is hiding a classmate of his late sister, who happens to be Jewish. Jojo starts to grow feelings and tries to help the girl, but his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler, that represents his Nazi ideology wants him to turn her in. This film is one of those weird movies that you will love in the long run. Jojo Rabbit is still in certain theaters, but will soon be able for home view. Just make sure to keep an eye out for this movie.
TRES/Number 3: Parasite
By far, Parasite is one of my favorite movies of 2019. Everything about this movie was fantastic. The shots, script, and acting were so good that you really feel like this is what films are made for. To me, this movie is“Joker” level good and it deserves the same praise. Parasite is a South Korea film with actors that does an amazing job in every scene. This movie is thrilling and comical at the same time and keeps you intrigue from beginning to end. Outside of the subtitles, (which shouldn’t be a problem) you’ll find yourself truly amazed by this movie.
Parasite is about a poor family name the Kims that use the term “fake it to you make it” to their advantage. The Kim family falsify their skills in order to get jobs, working for a rich family. During their time working for this family, they uncover some secrets that weren’t supposed to be discovered; and from that point, the movie starts to get wild. As of now Parasite is still in certain theaters, but will soon be able for home view. If you are a fan of good movies, then I strongly suggest you go watch this one.
