Blinded by the Light (2019) Fred Topel Javed is probably the ideal version of the underdog, leading a story in which one triumphs enough over adversity to become the protagonist of a movie inspired by his life and inspiring others to realize that their voices matter. EDIT

Men in Black: International (2019) Fred Topel They can do anything they want in visual effects now, but they can't write a funny script. Men in Black: International is loaded with more aliens, MIB gadgets, and firepower, but there aren't any jokes. EDIT
