Omar Watches Films 2019 Movie Club

Welcome to the 2019 Movie Club. I tried this last year for around 3 months but it didn’t work. Obviously I still don’t have that big of a following but the issue I think was that I was announcing my picks the same week. This year I thought I would do something different. I would list out all the films that I am planning to watch for this movie club. Each month has a theme, and films will be selected based on that theme for that specific month. Each month will consist of 4 films, so a film per week. So from the 1st till the 7th is the period to watch the first film, 7th to 14th the second and so on until the 28th of the month. I think this style will make it easier for people to follow. Because if any of you want a film to watch, you can just open up the list and follow along. Or even just have it as an interesting way to get introduced to more films. I will choose the films purely based on things I haven’t seen. Obviously some of you may have seen most or maybe all of the films which is fine. But I think it is an interesting idea to have this club, watch a film every week of the year, and discuss it on twitter or in the comments. With that being said. Here is the list for 2019:
