These are my 4/5 first time viewed films last year (didn't give better ratings to any, but that's just me). I tried to put them in some order but it's really hard. I also think I may have overestimated The Last Hangover when I saw it but I'll go with my ratings here.

The House with Laughing Windows (1976)
Demons (1971)
The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015)
Marshland (2014)
Tigers Are Not Afraid (2017)
The Children (2008)
Who Can Kill a Child? (1976)
The Third Murder (2017)
The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion (2018)
The Last Hangover (2018)

And here's the 3.5/5 films (rest of the GOOD films) in no order.

Monos (2019)
The Dark Valley (2014)
The Hunting Party (1971)
A Conspiracy of Faith (2016)
The Nightingale (2018)
Caliber 9 (1972)
Captive State (2019)
Us (2019)
Forbidden Games (1952)
[REC] (2007)
They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)

Welcome to the human race...
Bruh, your list includes Halloween 5, Pretty in Pink, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Watching new movies can only be an improvement.
