Adam & Jon’s Frakking Favourite Films of 2019

***DISCLAIMER: We apologize for the poor audio quality of our first international broadcast. The intent was to share a video chat we had via Skype but the app defaults to 15 fps instead of 24-30 fps and no matter how it was converted both audio and video were unusable. We are now looking into alternatives to enter the video age. Thank you. 

 

Good news Frak fans. The wait is almost over!

As regular readers/listeners will know Film Frak has been on hiatus the last 9 months, but the new and improved or is that improvised Film Frak podcast will be returning very soon. First though it’s time for some 2019 housekeeping, namely lodging Jon and Adam’s favourites of last year.

Being the motivated one of the pair, the Schwarzenegger if you will, Jon already shared his list on our Facebook Page back on December 30 having viewed 86 new release films.

Me, (Adam) well I’m the procrastinator and excuse maker, the Beatty of the pair so it’s only now, having viewed 98 films from 2019 that I lodge my list.

Both of us agree 2019 delivered some truly quality films and assembling the final drafts was a gargantuan challenge. There are numerous titles that could have easily been substituted for what’s on the page, but hey that’s the savagery of these things.

Enough with the preamble. On with the show. See the lists below then comment with your own top 10’s or 20’s. What we got wrong. What we got right. Or whatever else you may have to say about 2019 in cinema.

We look forward to sharing our own cinematic journeys of 2020 with you shortly.
