Your Ultimate Movie Guide On Upcoming Movies In 2019
While books are my main bitch, we all know my forever loyal side hoe is and always will be movies.
For someone who gets easily distracted and bored like me, I find tv shows too daunting to watch. Unless it’s Stranger Things, I pause everything for Stranger Things. I’d pause life for that tv show. But other than that, I have tried watching a few other tv shows, and most of time time, I always get bored halfway through the season.
Which is why these days, I mostly turn to movies when I need some entertainment that aren’t books. Not only because most of it are only 2 to 3 hours long, which is perfect for my goldfish attention span. There are also just so many good movies out there, it is truly amazing the creativity and innovation that people put into films.
And when these days TV shows barely rouse me no more, I still get giddy when it comes to movies. Not to mention, there are just so many amazing upcoming movies in 2019. I wouldn’t be able to contain that much excitement from all the upcoming movies just in this tiny body, which is why I’m sharing all of that with you too!
