My additions...

Best
American Made

Better
Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol2

Would take Dunkirk off this list. I like most Christopher Nolan and war films... some high points, but overall felt this was a snoozefest. Perhaps it's because I saw this on DVD on my laptop and didn't get the IMAX experience.

Yes, American Made was very good. I forgot that one.

Molly's game.
Wonder.

I liked Darkest hour for the acting and visual portrayal of Churchill.

If you liked Molly's Game, you'd probably get a big kick out of binge-watching Sorkin's stuff.

The West Wing (on Netflix)

The Newsroom (HBO)

Loved that one. There were 15-20 minutes towards the end where I think it lost a bit of momentum, but very, very well done

It's animated so targeted to kids, but Coco is spectacular, even for adults.

I thought Love Sick was a great movie. And the new Star Wars.

We are so out of touch :( .

The only movie mentioned which we have seen is Dunkirk. I do think it is a good movie.

Outstanding:.....highly recommended. :D

The Mountain Between US.

Stranded on a mountain after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must work together to endure the extreme elements of the remote, snow-covered terrain. Realizing that help is not on the way, they embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing each other to survive and discovering their inner strength.

Not so outstanding:

All the Money in the World....unless you've got nothing to do.......not recommended.....unless you need to take a nap :|

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
