1. Sound of Metal (2019)

R | 120 min | Drama, Music

A heavy-metal drummer's life is thrown into freefall when he begins to lose his hearing.

Director: Darius Marder | Stars: Riz Ahmed , Olivia Cooke , Paul Raci , Lauren Ridloff

Votes: 133,502

This will rip your heart out and give you something you may experience as one of your worst fears. There is this discussion online about which character in a movie has gone thru the most. I have to say Riz Ahmed’s Ruben has to be up there. This is a straight up mood piece quite like 2019’s Waves, which again is a movie that specializes in sound and sight. Both movies do not have grand like stories but more like a slice of life. But take a look at big directors like Fincher, Tarantino, or even Nolan. There past movies have been lackluster to say the least. But look amazing and made with such professionalism that makes anyone who loves film will look at them and see why they are the best in the game. But this film and Waves by the new age directors really have proved to combine both amazing made films from a technical aspect to then make a great story. I have to say a lot of films left me cold that I couldn’t get attach to anyone. But this film let me feel all the feels. From the get go I was on board and holy shit did this film kick off with a bang. Seriously all the two hours was a god damn feeling of hope blissfulness and at end I felt more sadness than anything before. I am amazed at how much I felt for this movie. And yes don’t get fooled by the streaming service original you see for free, this is a film that is directed and written so damn well. Which is why this is my favorite film of the year. I love my top ten and The Outpost, Run, and the rest are all great but you really have no f-ing idea how much an impact a film can have when you watch this film from beginning to end. The last shot is f-ing beautiful but so damn haunting that it is a scary experience to witness. Riz Ahmed is probably a shoe in for the win. As he should be. He is the film and without him you feel nothing. Plus the role ask for what I assume an American born citizen but they cast a British Pakistani for the lead role and I honestly can’t see anyone for this role. Among the other great things about this movie it is also a great achievement of casting actual death people and letting them have a say in the matter. Ruben is not a character who is born deaf but this is film is about adapting to a new life stable and letting others guide you. It is not about accepting defeat and that is something I think is being overlooked here these people who are deaf and none of them are blaming the world but someone who has his whole life be something to all of sudden change at the flip of the dime can seem scary and hopeless. But that is why the community and the people have so much impact on the story they matter because that is what people have been asking for representation. They are not asking to be the lead in a film which would be nice, but if you are going to make a film about this subject matter it would be nice to see actual people who have gone thru these experiences in order to get an actual emotion from the audience. Why do you think Run works so much. That is why this film works. God damn I am in love with this movie. The best film of the mother fucking year. 10/10

2. Soul (2020)

PG | 100 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

After landing the gig of a lifetime, a New York jazz pianist suddenly finds himself trapped in a strange land between Earth and the afterlife.

Directors: Pete Docter , Kemp Powers | Stars: Jamie Foxx , Tina Fey , Graham Norton , Rachel House

Votes: 338,450

This is just, damn where to begin. Okay from the trailer I really wasn’t expecting much for this movie. But when Pixar releases more than one movie a year it is always the second film to come that is better. So I thought Onward was amazing and you can’t find a better Pixar movie. But this takes a story about living to a whole new level. I always hate the stigma that animation films have that they are just for kids or it is a genre so holy crap this is just a moment in film history to see something this magnificent. Jamie Fox’s Joe Gardner is one of the best leads we have seen not just in Pixar or animation but in any story telling degree because holy crap this is what a mood piece is. It is so damn good to see a movie that takes so much chances about life and death. And yes Pixar have touched on these topics before. With Up, Coco, and Inside Out but the difference here is letting people who feel they don’t have a purpose in this world matter. Which is why this is an important movie to a lot of people to see why we should live life like it is our last. Tiny Fay’s 22 is us everyday for those who haven’t found their purpose in life but it is important to at least try. And that message about giving this world a try and making sure that not everything needs to be grand or life changing but it is how it makes you feel. There is no shame in enjoying life just the way it is. This film is so damn polite with the nature of how we as human beings live our life. I think it is so beautiful to see a film tackle something as serious as accepting your end because one day our time will come and it is up to us to accept our end. No matter how sad this might sound but we really can’t do anything about our end. It is out of our hands and when our time comes we are going to go. This film is also really and I mean really funny. They are so many quick cutaways to other characters that will make die laughing. Multiple times I was laughing really hard and I’m so glad to watch this movie at home because it would be a real shame to not be able to watch this film this year or be put on the shelf. This is an emotional ride that didn’t stop to the very end. This film sticks the landing so my top two favorite movies of the year have exceptional endings that really pull your heart out and make you feel something that no other median can accomplish. 10/10

3. Pieces of a Woman (2020)

R | 126 min | Drama

When a young mother's home birth ends in unfathomable tragedy, she begins a year-long odyssey of mourning that fractures relationships with loved ones in this deeply personal story of a woman learning to live alongside her loss.

Director: Kornél Mundruczó | Stars: Vanessa Kirby , Shia LaBeouf , Ellen Burstyn , Iliza Shlesinger

Votes: 51,698

Real good dramas are hard to come by. This is evidence that the term Oscar bait does not apply to some but for me it shouldn’t be labeled for this film. I honestly was taken away by the pure power that this film has and a lot falls on Vanessa Kirby being as good as she is. It is written by Kata Weber and directed by Kornel Mundrugzo which I love White God. This being their first English language film is remarkable seeing how well written and acted a film like this is. It is not a high concept film instead it is about one woman’s struggle to find her femininity. Many films are about men finding their masculinity hell I just rewatched The Grey from 2012 and that film is about men coming to terms about their place in this world and to see a film with the contrast opposite is amazing to see. Aside from Vanessa their is Shia who yes is going through some personal stuff that I wish wasn’t hanging it’s head over this movie but he is amazing in the film. It’s always nice to see Sarah Snook in a film, and the rest of the cast does a good job but it is Kirby’s performance that you will walk away from. The ending is just about right and leaves enough to the imagination to not be overly sappy and sad but more hopeful. I didn’t need a heartbreaking ending because I already got that for a majority of the film. Instead the ending provides hope and a different feeling than we have been used to seeing. Please check this film out and you will not regret watching this film. 10/10

4. Another Round (2020)

Not Rated | 117 min | Comedy, Drama

Four high-school teachers consume alcohol on a daily basis to see how it affects their social and professional lives.

Director: Thomas Vinterberg | Stars: Mads Mikkelsen , Thomas Bo Larsen , Magnus Millang , Lars Ranthe

Votes: 167,687

It took me about four months but I finally got around to seeing it. Thanks to Hulu of course. And it is as good as every one saying it is. Holy crap both Mads and Thomas are excellent together and made another modern masterpiece about the mundane life style with real people. I mean these feel like teachers with a drinking problem. It never came off as actors or over written or directed but instead he uses the same tactics he used in films like The Hunt and The Celebration where it is not a plot heavy movie or even a story heavy movie instead these characters are what makes this movie more warming and welcoming than any story about alcoholism can do. I love it. 10/10

5. One Night in Miami... (2020)

R | 114 min | Drama

A fictional account of one incredible night where icons Muhammad Ali , Malcolm X , Sam Cooke , and Jim Brown gathered discussing their roles in the Civil Rights Movement and cultural upheaval of the 60s.

Director: Regina King | Stars: Kingsley Ben-Adir , Eli Goree , Aldis Hodge , Leslie Odom Jr.

Votes: 32,844

Damn. I’ll say this again damn. First let me go over the four main cast members. Malcom X is being campaign as the lead, and he should because to me he is what moves the story forward even the last quote of the film ends with him. Kingsley Ben-Adir portray of Malcom X is not just good as X but we get to see much more than just the leader we know him as. He captures what Malcom could have been off camera and that discussion is in this film of who he is when the camera. Denzel Washington will always be awesome as X because he had a three hour movie to really showcase the life, but here this is enough of a difference that it doesn’t seem like a re do or a copy of what that film did. Next I would say is Eli Goree as Cassius Clay. His physical appearance can even rival what Will Smith did in Ali. But I like how his story comes full circle on how we see him as Cassius Clay and at the end he is known as Muhammad Ali. And I love that journey with so much heart and affection added towards it, you feel every bit of who this man is. Leslie Odom Jr. is without a doubt phenomenal in the singing aspect playing Sam Cooke. And I already love Sam Cooke’s music but I had no idea the impact he had because I really wasn’t around that time. Malcom X said it best he has the opportunity more than the other three to make an impact bigger than any of them. Last but certainly not least I have to say Jim Brown is my favorite. Aldis Hodge is amazing as Jim Brown. Maybe it is because I love football and Jim Brown is a legend but I just love that he just wants to get laid. I don’t know why but that added element makes me like him the most out of the group. Then he hits Malcom X with that I’m not a hero line. Which I have to say with Cappernick and everything going on in the NFL right now nothing has changed. But the fact that we have athletes try to say anything they are seen as just that athletes. Jim Brown was just so cool to see. Everyone in this cast is amazing. But now to touch on Regina King’s directorial debut. Holy crap she nails it. The editing is not choppy and for a one location film the cinematography is on point to not be the same. But even if the look of the film has a sameness to it at least the dialogue will keep you captivated to keep watching. Because holy crap this is such a well written film. I really like this movie. It is so well made and the stories it tells is just amazing to watch and behold. This is a really entertaining film. 10/10

6. Wolfwalkers (2020)

PG | 103 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

A young apprentice hunter and her father journey to Ireland to help wipe out the last wolf pack. But everything changes when she befriends a free-spirited girl from a mysterious tribe rumored to transform into wolves by night.

Directors: Tomm Moore , Ross Stewart | Stars: Honor Kneafsey , Eva Whittaker , Sean Bean , Simon McBurney

Votes: 34,129

This movie got better every minute that passes by. I should have known it was going to be good based on the directors previous work. Hell Song of the Sea freaking broke me. This is right up there. I love this movie and I couldn’t take my eyes away from what I was watching because plays like a smooth watch. Not to say that as a bad thing but the fantasy element is not too confusing where the viewer is left wondering how all this is happening. It works on a logical level but also on an emotional one as well. Just like the directors previous work they will rip your heart out but also make sure it is not done in a cliche or even sappy away. They do it very maturely with a very well nature to let the audience be aware of what they are watching. No fart or poop jokes. No silly wolf jokes or annoying characters. It is a very understated animated film that feels very welcoming to anyone who loves good stories and hoping to watch something inspiring. This is top notch filmmaking and storytelling. 10/10

7. The Outpost (2019)

R | 123 min | Action, Drama, History

A small team of U.S. soldiers battles against hundreds of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

Director: Rod Lurie | Stars: Scott Eastwood , Caleb Landry Jones , Orlando Bloom , Jack Kesy

Votes: 36,286

Holy crap. Half way thru the film I said this film is amazing. Then the last half came in and smack the crap out of me. Holy hell I love this film. Full disclosure I have never served in the military so I’m going to go in any detail of how “accurate” the combat is or even the events that went down. All I care about is how great this film plays out from beginning to end. Even before we get to the long second act battle that goes down I was already fully invested in this film. Scott Eastwood is so damn good in this movie he fits in this character so damn well that you forget he is acting. Along with special shout-out to Caleb Laundry Jones who is phenomenal in this movie. And he isn’t playing your typical gun ho type of solider instead he is more of an outsider to the squad so when the ship goes down he puts it all their and he commands the screen with his presence and is amazing. Rob Lurie who directed the hell out of this movie doesn’t over do any of cliche war type movies you have seen a thousands times. Which I have to be honest I’m sick and tired of watching straight to dvd low budget war films that have no heart and no balls really. Hell we have 5 freaking Jarhead movies. This is totally different film and a story that needs to be told. Because at the end of film it shows the real men who died during this terrible battle and all of the men who died are under the age of 30 some younger than myself. This is not your typical war movie, it is intense hell a lot of gun battles go off you feel it and don’t want any of these men to die. But damn this film kicks the hell out of you. Their are some small scenes of courage from Caleb is so damn encouraging to watch and you care about him and he is the heart of the film. While he is the heart of the film, Scott is the muscle. Seriously he is a bad ass. I have always been a fan of his but this took him to a whole new level. He is brilliant in the film who knocks it out of the park of how ruthless he is and a couple of scenes where he takes control of the situation and he makes a leader out of his real life counterpart. This is without a doubt my favorite film of the year. The long takes in this film are not gimmicks which some people may think but the director does it without ease and gives it a whole new meaning. The long takes are just damn beautiful. 10/10

8. Extraction (2020)

R | 116 min | Action, Thriller

Tyler Rake, a fearless black market mercenary, embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career when he's enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord.

Director: Sam Hargrave | Stars: Chris Hemsworth , Bryon Lerum , Ryder Lerum , Rudhraksh Jaiswal

Votes: 209,057

So this is The Way Back but instead of our lead coaching basketball he becomes a mercenary. This is one bad ass flick. Seriously, Rambo Last Blood wished it was this movie. I mean yes we have seen this film a million times before hell Netflix has like 6 films just like this that came out this year alone. What makes this film different from the rest is well Chris Hemsworth he has never been better. To me this is his best performance outside of the MCU because Ragnarok is still one of his best. It is a truly an awesome movie with beautiful camera work from the director with amazing stunt work this is a raw and brutal film. With theaters closed at the moment it is so nice to see an action film that doesn’t feel a straight to dvd with cheap affects crappy editing and terrible camera work. This is not that film and yes as of right now it is my favorite film of the year. This is the type of movie I would like to make and it is my type of movie to watch. A hard R with a bad ass lead and incredible action that will make you flinch just of how hard this movie hits. It is f-ing rad. 10/10

9. The Call (2020)

Director: Spike Jonze | Stars: Beastie Boys , Mike D , Adam Horovitz , Adam Yauch

Votes: 7,099

I am now glad I have an iPhone so I don’t have to pay for Apple TV Plus. Even tho I think iPhone makers are putting secret codes in the phones to send help but anyway I love this documentary. I am a huge Beastie Boys fan. Truly they are awesome. It’s so fascinating to see them describe them in their younger years as so cool and confident they were. But also to see them grow out of their reckless days. Which is why I love this documentary; it is funny, an incredible trip, and it is really touching near the end. Which is why this documentary has much more heart to it than most do. I can’t believe how much I love this documentary and thanks to Spike Jones who orchestrated this odyssey of awesomeness. And the music you can not tap your foot and nod your head when Sabotage, Intergalactic, Fight for your Right, etc. etc. It is an eclectic fun show stopping force to be reckon with. Watch this shit. 10/10

12. Da 5 Bloods (2020)

R | 154 min | Adventure, Drama, War

Four African-American vets battle the forces of man and nature when they return to Vietnam seeking the remains of their fallen squad leader and the gold fortune he helped them hide.

Director: Spike Lee | Stars: Delroy Lindo , Jonathan Majors , Clarke Peters , Norm Lewis

Votes: 52,757

Netflix coming in again to provide one of the most exhilarating and thought provoking film of the year. This film is awesome plain and simple because Spike Lee is doing something special here with something that is deeply personal. We can feel the pain the black and even the affect the Vietnam war had on both the Americans who were sent there forced to act upon on another person’s war. This is the point of the whole movie that these men including countless others did during that time. While war was breaking out in their real hometown where they are needed the most. This film is much needed right now from a filmmaker who is not afraid or bound to make some cookie cutter film about 4 selfish soldiers who have no character growth but that can’t be more false. All the actors here are able to make these characters seem important to the story to move it along and we are here to follow them into the depth of insanity and this film gets crazier and more intense as the 2 hr and 34 min runtime that will not bore you. Spike has done it again. This film is awesome. 9/10

13. Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020)

PG-13 | 101 min | Drama

A pair of teenage girls in rural Pennsylvania travel to New York City to seek out medical help after an unintended pregnancy.

Director: Eliza Hittman | Stars: Sidney Flanigan , Talia Ryder , Théodore Pellerin , Eliazar Jimenez

Votes: 29,437

It has been real difficult to watch new films during these circumstances. It sucks to say the least. But I knew once Eliza Hittman released her new film I had to watch it. This might be her best film to date. It is both engaging and heartfelt to watch. But at the same time gut wrenching in some aspects dealing with the subject matter. The reason why I say it is heartfelt because you don’t hate the lead two female characters. If anything if you don’t route for these characters the movie provides enough evidence to understand the mains woman’s situation. It is not at all disturbing to watch actually because Eliza makes anyone understand everything that is going on without spoon feeding us all the information. I love this movie and again where we are at in these dyer times a movie this good is great to watch no matter the format. And I am saying that as someone who has watched this movie from home, watch it and it is great. 9/10

14. New Order (2020)

R | 86 min | Crime, Drama, Sci-Fi

15. Onward (I) (2020)

PG | 102 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Two elven brothers embark on a quest to bring their father back for one day.

Director: Dan Scanlon | Stars: Tom Holland , Chris Pratt , Julia Louis-Dreyfus , Octavia Spencer

Votes: 154,147 | Gross: $61.56M

I have been so on and off with Pixar these last couple of years. I think films like Coco, Inside Out have been home run hits. But lately I wasn’t the biggest fan of either Toy Story 4 or even The Incredibles 2. However, holy crap this is a phenomenal movie with something for everyone to enjoy, laugh, and cry. So while think about the ending and not being what you may think it is, it truly sneaks up on you and makes you reflect on what’s truly important in life. Wow did this movie have its hooks in me and dragged me along for the ride. Sure it makes you cry but I felt it was more imaginative and creative on how this dynamic between brothers would fit in this story and it works like gang buster. Love every minute of it and it gives us a little hope in their time and need. Which both this and Big Time Adolescence makes me want to call my brother. And call yours cause this will wish you can be every inch of what a big brother should be. 10/10

16. Love and Monsters (I) (2020)

PG-13 | 109 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

Seven years after he survived the monster apocalypse, lovably hapless Joel leaves his cozy underground bunker behind on a quest to reunite with his ex.

Director: Michael Matthews | Stars: Dylan O'Brien , Jessica Henwick , Michael Rooker , Dan Ewing

Votes: 132,155 | Gross: $1.07M

I honestly have to say this is the movie I needed right now. I’m just so happy for Dylan O’Brien to be given this chance to really show he is a force to be reckon with. He is funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately the most relatable character we have right now. Next to the main character in #Alive where a young slacker tries to survive in a zombie apocalypse while trying to find love which this film follows a third act that is pretty note by note the same we have seen a lot. But aside that negative critique that third act is still pulse pounding exciting climax that I really enjoyed. The whole film is enjoyable because the monsters and the human characters are a match at being just as good as the other. The characters don’t over shadow the monsters because of the brilliant visuals are amazing. Ultimately tho again the monsters do not get in the way of the human characters. Joel, which has to be a The Last of Us reference, is amazing as our main character and I just fell for what he was going thru. It’s so weird seeing a lot of movies that try to relate to young adults like myself just fall flat. And I have always been a fan of Dylan so I have seen him been in some lead roles and he is great but to me this is his best work. He is just flat out a great character who makes this film as enjoyable as it is. I never understood the term this film has no right to be this good. But holy crap this is a great film. I haven’t even seen the trailer for this film and this film had like no press and no one has talked about it along with the trailer not even reaching a million views. Which is insane because I honestly thought this would be a straight to dvd knock off of other popular films that have done it better. But it is not. It is amazing on all levels which makes me love this movie even more. I usually don’t watch films twice anymore unless it is like a holiday theme movie for Halloween and old classics but this is a film that I would strongly advise watching it again. I even tested up a bit towards the end because it is a message I think anyone can get behind. I love this film. 9/10

17. The Devil All the Time (2020)

R | 138 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller

Sinister characters converge around a young man devoted to protecting those he loves in a postwar backwoods town teeming with corruption and brutality.

Director: Antonio Campos | Stars: Bill Skarsgård , Tom Holland , Banks Repeta , Emilio Subercaseaux Campos

Votes: 139,668

First all the performances are incredible and top notch. Along with great cinematography, really good choice of music, and brilliant character work. I mean a lot of films now days are put together real professionally by editing and camera work along with the technical aspect it is an A+ but it seems some movies forget characters and story. But The Devil All The Time does not skip a step when it comes to character work and story. I love stories like these. These small town crime dramas with an enormous cast are my type of thing. Tom Holland as this main character is one of my favorite of the year. The whole ensemble is great but to me it is Tom who radiates off screen as someone to not look away from. Batman is still over the top as always. Pennywise who is mainly in the beginning of the movie is the one who sets this curse among the whole family. Winter soldier and his storyline might be the weakest aspect of the movie. But I still really like this movie a lot actually because it did keep me interested like a good book does. The one takeaway I can say about this film is that I did care what happens to Tom Holland’s character because of all the crap he went through. This is a brutal film and I love the barebones nature of this film. It actually has a lot to say about religion and our relationship with God. How that can shape a lot of us to head down a terrible route but the irony is the Bible could be about peace but a lot of that peace was paved by violence. That is the tile is referring to. The Devil All The Time is a great title as the moment Pennywise brought God unto his life he knew it would come at a price because this film does not have any blissful nature and it is hell. This is a downer of a film which towards the end I love the turn and the narration really heads home. It is a great film and a really good story. 9/10

18. Impetigore (2019)

Not Rated | 106 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A toll booth operator travels to her ancestral village in hopes of claiming an inheritance - until she discovers the unsettling truth about her past.

Director: Joko Anwar | Stars: Tara Basro , Ario Bayu , Marissa Anita , Christine Hakim

Votes: 6,158

The best horror film of the year. Horror fans should join in on Shudder and watch this immediately. Even non horror fans should watch this because from the first 10 minutes this film grabs you in and it is so damn entertaining to watch. I was pulled in from the beginning and never got bored. With two very fun female lead characters to watch and route for. They are not annoying but instead their flaws make them more realistic in their acting. Seriously this is one of the better acted horror films I have seen in a long time. Midsommar also have some of the same aspects as this film but I really like how this film tackles curses and all the twists in this film are not over explaining. It adds enough story for you to put the pieces together which keeps an audience more engage into see how this crazy story ends. Seriously I was guessing all the way through in how this movie ends but at the same time I was so enthralled in how well shot, acted, and edited. Their are some great camera techniques in this film because of course it is. It’s from Indonesia which are the best at moving the camera to use long takes and flipping the camera upside down. It changes the way we can put the camera in different angles which makes me want to be a director even more. Everyday I think to myself this is my type of horror films and it is awesome to see these type of movies being made. Especially from different countries. It’s great watch this film. 9/10

19. Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (2020)

20. Promising Young Woman (2020)

R | 113 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

A young woman, traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path.

Director: Emerald Fennell | Stars: Carey Mulligan , Bo Burnham , Alison Brie , Clancy Brown

Votes: 180,979

The good: Carey Mulligan. She is pitch perfect in this role. It is amazing to see this side of her. We as film fans know she has been amazing from day one. But this isn’t An Education, or Wildlife or any other film she has done. She pulses with electricity like I have never seen before by her. Of course the writer of Killing Eve made something this smart and sophisticated. While also being darkly funny. But it isn’t a laugh riot. This is a romantic comedy with a musical montage of love, then a tragic drama about grief and lost, last it is a psychological thriller with enough twists and turns you never see coming. That is all in the writing and directing. Truly an A+ effort handling all these tonal shifts never making the audience bored. My eyes were glued to this screen by just how beautiful looking this film is. The rest of the cast aside from Mulligan don’t have a lot of screen time but they do leave a lasting impression enough to make you want more from them. My only problem or complaint is that I just don’t love it as much as I would like to. I love the choice in the ending I really do. The whole ending from the last 20 minutes o think it is ballsy. And the song it ends on is just the cherry on top. Maybe it is the most entertaining film I have seen this year but I really wish they would change a few things here and there. Which is difficult because as a film lover I never want a filmmaker to change their film for one person liking. Because that is not good filmmaking to cater to only one person. Aside from that I do like title and the meaning behind it. It is a pretty good film and I would like to own it and watch it to learn more things about it. 9/10

I’m honestly shocked that the rating is a 6.2 as of me writing this but I’m pretty sure it will not go up or down. But this film is an incredible smart and an extremely thrilling movie that does not hold back any punches. Which is something we want out of movies now. In a world where everything needs to be a tv show to develop characters and story but it is so nice to see a lean mean under 90 minute movie machine. JGL is back and better than ever. He is front and center in this film and you can not take your eyes off his performance which should be consider for best lead actor. Audiences should love a film like this because this is how films back in the 90’s were made. Just a simple story filled with intense and heartbreaking scenes that is awesome to see a film like this again. 9/10

This is how you make one killer of a thriller. The old vets are without a doubt top of their game. With some of the best writing that has come their way in a long time. The story is also captivating enough to carry that almost 2 hour run time. Most movies fall to have characters to make you route for and a villain to hate. Here we know who the good guys and the bad guys are and we are as the audience buy every minute of this movie. I’m fine with movies having a serious tone like this because it also some films to have their own voice and actually this director first two films are a complete contrast to what this film is. If I hadn’t slept on this film I’m pretty sure this would have made it in my top ten. But I honestly can’t think of any huge complaints about the film. This is an emotional ride about owning what’s yours and hell yeah of an ending. Check this film out. 9/10

23. The Half of It (I) (2020)

Votes: 39,458

Beautiful absolutely beautiful. Not only in the story telling which is worth talking about but the locations, the song choices, the good hearted nature of the three main characters, and the actual conversations that people have are something new and exciting we rarely see anymore. This movie gets a lot right with so little wrong with being one of the best teen romance movies to come out of any studio or streaming service. Which is why I never understood how people will talk down on straight to streaming movies, cause this is one of many films to hit the streaming service and deliver an incredible touching story that make anyone feel moved by watching this movie. This movie does take chances and is never boring because it can be divided into three parts and you may think that you know where this is going it changes into something unexpected. It was 40 minutes in and I was wondering where is this movie going then it hits you in the gut of how real this can be. Both Leah Lewis and Daniel Diemer are amazing in this movie and it is something that I think everyone should watch cause it is both funny and tragic as the story continues. Big props go Alice Wu for making Ellie (Leah Lewis) strong and independent enough to make loneliness seem unwanted or even unwarranted because a great storyteller and actress can do that. 9/10

Awesome. Purely f-ing awesome. I love thrillers and it has been a good year for thrillers. From this to also 7500 these two thrillers are amazing with building up tension that delivers with every direction and step it takes. From beginning to end Run is a non stop thrill ride that absolutely kills it with some of the best performances of the year. Both Sara Paulson and newcomer Kiera Allen are amazing in this back and forth that captures some true exciting achievements done by the guy who directed one of my favorite films of 2018. Aneesh Changanty is a genius. I mean it. His directing, the camera movement, the atmosphere, everything is brutally amazing. Watching this movie put me thru so much emotion. Like after watching this movie I let out a huge god damn. Because this is how you make a thriller. Hell this is how you make a f-ing movie. Lean and mean 90 minutes that yes it sucks that we can’t a movie like this on the big screen but hell I would rather watch this film over and over again for free to fully dive into what this movie brings. It is awesome. I love this movie and I really hope it stays in my top 10 because it is that damn good. 9/10

RIP Robert Forster. He lead a great career and if this is his last film then he ended his career on a high note. Because this film is in one word, great. Horror comedies are not my thing. Which is weird because horror is my favorite genre. This is such a refreshing movie to watch as a horror fan with this being one of the year’s best. It is not only frightening in parts but also really funny. More funny than it needs to be. I just had a great time watching this 80 minute riot. This is the complete opposite of Scare Me. 9/10

26. Get Duked! (2019)

Votes: 7,967

Aside from Soul this is possibly my favorite and funniest comedy of 2020. I just have one problem. The Duke and his wife are great antagonist against the four boys but I have to say two things could have been better if possibly given more time. It is a comedy and I was having a blast but it was never laughing at these bros. We or at least I was laughing with them. There is incredible chemistry going on here and of course it goes about exactly how you think it is going to go but the jokes never felt stale or even too foreign for an American like me to find enjoyable. It is similar to the likes of this year’s The Hunt but I don’t know this was just far more enjoyable and more of a likable film. What a blast I had. Plus the editing and music choices are just great it is a great addition to something I would like to do if I ever make a film. 9/10

Votes: 6,070

There have been a ton of good documentaries that came out in 2020. Most hit harder like this one because of the year it has been. But even before I go into the justice system and the crime itself, I was won over totally by the end. Because as you can see from the poster this image hits harder in the context of the film. It also has a lot to say about the time we have on this earth to not let it pass as this family have been counting down the days for their love one to come home. And at the end when some vids are playing in reverse to a very profound last shot. If you can get me with a last shot to be moved to an emotional moment not just for the real people in this film but for us the audience who followed these people on this difficult journey. But for us which is an 80 minute movie must have felt like a life time for these real people is just an emotional pull I wasn’t expecting from this movie. 9/10

Director: Aaron Sorkin | Stars: Eddie Redmayne , Alex Sharp , Sacha Baron Cohen , Jeremy Strong

Votes: 181,452

The movie is definitely far from perfect. At times it does feel scripted not just for tv but also like a stage play. It is edited to be excited with quick cuts and moving back and forth between dialogue to keep you invested which came off more distracting than intended. And the last scene is well a little over dramatic for my taste. But and I mean but that still doesn’t take away this honest portrayal of what these men had to go thru under these circumstances. A little background I don’t mind if life is reflected in art and that goes for both left and right. This is a movie that is more left than center which I do feel like it might turn people away. But all the evidence that is presented and further reading to see what actually happened that day I started to feel like these men were at the end of their roles towards the end. So forget how much carelessness the judge and sometimes even your own government may have against you but it seemed to me I couldn’t help to be on their side. I mean I was already in their favor from the beginning only because I agree with all these men are saying. And the movie does move at a break neck speed to keep the viewer interested but honestly I feel like I didn’t need all of that. Which honestly the cast both helps and hurts this material. I’m pretty sure the actors portraying these real life figures took inspiration of what other people may have said about them without giving us the audience a realistic approach to who these men really were. For me it was distracting because I was just thinking are these men really like this. And the answer to that a probably a big fat no. But at least Sorkin who wrote and directed makes it entertaining to watch this story unfold. It is a courtroom drama so if you know you like these stories, without hesitation will tell you to watch this movie because I doubt you will be bored. What can I say about the acting all are phenomenal because all of them bring their A game. Honestly I can’t say any actor in this movie was bad or not convincing at all. I did feel for all of these guys because of the position they were in was a disgrace and again history is repeating itself again and again and sadly what these men were fighting for to not make this trial about them but the cause and the reason what drove them to do this in the first place gets muddled by sheer lunacy in order to distract others what is really going on. Powerful stuff. 9/10

29. The Gentlemen (2019)

Guy Ritchie has done it again and I applaud him for taking on one of his most fun and exciting films in a long time. With a cast who is having the most fun with their roles and actors delivering awesome performances. Matthew, Charlie, Colin, Michelle, Hugh, Henry, and with two smaller roles with Jeremy Strong and Eddie Marsan the whole cast delievers with so much cool I had a blast watching this movie. I did laugh multiple times and just had a huge smile on my face from beginning to end. 9/10

Votes: 27,971

I’m actually pretty glad that this film’s ending didn’t go for the loud and explosive ending instead it went for a more emotional ending. The lead up that this film has pays off in the end when it is explain why these soldiers are doing what they are doing. The last line hits that point even harder in how these men’s priorities will never end until the other side is fully extinct. It is as powerful as any superhero movie ever because this story doesn’t need to be dragged out or to be this elaborate 3 hour history lesson. Instead it is a go for broke look at what these actual men had to go through. It is polarizing and the action is top notch filmmaking that makes it look like it was done by a pro. Sure yes the characters at least some of them are not fleshed out like some people would love but this along with The Outpost shows more of the human struggle and a group of men’s will to not give up. I love these types of stories. 9/10

The premise had me intrigued from the get go. Especially last year when I first heard about this movie and my eye out for it ever since. Thank you Netflix for still providing quality entertainment during well this time. If you love Snowpiercer then you would love this movie as did I. Because not only does it provide enough information to keep you hook, it never goes off the deep end into unbelievable territory. Which truly is the strength of this movie. That is what keeps this more horrifying than anything I have seen in a while. This is true horror mixed well with a great science fiction plot. It truly has no easy answers to anything. Even in the end, it’s ambiguity leaves a strong impression that will keep anyone guessing what this movie is and what the ending actual means. At a 89 minute runtime the time is an actual important part of the story because it has much more to say about how precious time is. The more the movie goes along it just get better and better because the food of the film represents the story in a way I wasn’t expecting. It is not predictable at all. Watch this movie and examine where we are at right now in society and this film may not seem as far fetched. Holy fuck as I’m typing this I never felt for a movie more relevant than I do now. 9/10 watch this shit now.

32. The Social Dilemma (2020)

PG-13 | 94 min | Documentary, Drama

Director: Jeff Orlowski-Yang | Stars: Tristan Harris , Jeff Seibert , Bailey Richardson , Joe Toscano

Votes: 84,846

One reviewer did say this doc is a little to late, which is something I agree with. Which is why the first half of this doc is something I basically already knew. I know that this system is really trying to manipulate others into doing something or thinking in a way that they have never came across before. And the big marketing companies that profit off of that. Truly I know that myself. But it is still fascinating to watch, until the second half comes on. The moment they start talking about how fake news is controlling the social media is where I got more invested. I mean seriously every topic of conversation could have applied 5 or even 10 years ago, and hell they can come out with this type of documentary every year and still be just as topical still as impactful as it is right now. To me it is all about sides because reaction can only come from those who are outrage. Like they said in the doc we are living in the most divisive time we are living in. Because people are simple we want a side to pick because the easier it is to pick a side the much more easier it is to control the situation. I mean hell social is causing people or sure enough to influence others to go out and do something. It is a little more complicated than that but this doc still has a lot of important information and what young minds are being shaped for their future is damaging. Because social media probably was intended for good and of course these companies were made to make money but they never asked themselves how they were going to make that money. And that is the dangerous part. 9/10

33. The Vast of Night (2019)

Votes: 40,991

Took me by complete surprise. I had no idea what to expect and within the first 20 minutes is a fast paced dialogue heavy conversation between multiple characters with hardly any cuts. And the cuts that are there are so seamless and inventive that any editor would be amaze at what they are watching. It’s crazy how entertaining this indie is, even with the limited budget it still hooks you in from the beginning and I would say the ending works for me. Because it is the one moment of the film that utilizes silence which up until the ending the film is non stop wall to wall dialogue. It is both beautiful and haunting that works to make us the audience question what we just watch. With this being a first timer director he makes the ending ambiguous enough to not give us all the answers. We have to consider what just happened and for some reason I love that about this movie. 9/10

34. The Empty Man (2020)

R | 137 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery

Director: David Prior | Stars: James Badge Dale , Marin Ireland , Sasha Frolova , Samantha Logan

Votes: 32,059

Yes it is good. But yes I know this is not for everyone. It is not perfect. Some of the acting is piss poor and the ending to me is very predictable. I did call the ending. But here is the thing, this movie is freaking weird. It is a movie that is strange and on the surface it does seem like your average horror film from the 2010’s. But like Sinister, Hereditary, and yes even The Wailing this movie will twist when you think it is going to turn. I didn’t put in noticeably a lot of other good adult horror movies because those movies dive into the lore which expands the horror to go past than just your usual dark figure killer movie. Yes, The Empty Man could have been your usual dark murderous figure that is the only threat the movie has. But that is not the only horror theme in this horror movie. This is a thriller, a really good mystery that keeps you guessing what the heck is going on, and lastly a pretty well executed if not very flimsy drama. The drama aspect is the only part of the film that I didn’t enjoy a whole lot. I mean James Badge Dale is your typical damage male lead here. You know a drinker with a dark past who can’t emotionally connect with anyone because of what has previously happened. You have seen it before. But gosh damn if James Badge Dale ain’t damn good in this movie. Seriously this guy is so freaking good in this movie it is a shame that he is not getting the same level of love someone like Ethan Hawke got in Sinister. Or Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the Conjuring films where these actors got so much out of these huge horror blockbusters. He is just as good. Yes the movie does go to some places that will confuse some people but I’m telling you if you stick with this movie it will leave you more satisfied than confused. I understand that some people just want to watch horror films where people die and the killer at the end meets his or her end. But this is not that film. It is a cliche at this point to say this movie stayed with me. But holy crap their is a chunk in the middle of this movie that has stayed with me. Like after it ended I said holy shit. Horror movies like this are not easily digestible but every once a while a horror film that tries to do something different from the mold will captivate a certain number of its audience who will no doubt go with this movie for the wild ride it is. I happen to be one of those audience members who allowed this film to wash over me. This is a bad ass flick that holds no punches and go to places that will lose some people but damn I was along for the ride and I didn’t want this movie to stop. Even tho where movies and mini series are blending together but even at 2 hrs and 17 minutes I feel like I got what I wanted without needing more time or even needed any time to be cut. I feel like every frame is as important to move forward the narrative than most people will not consider. One of my new favorite horror films in recent memory. 9/10

This is my kinda movie. I really liked it from all aspects of filmmaking. The performances from all involved are really good , but of course this is Ben Affleck’s movie and he nails it just as an actor but also to make an audience believe that this is a real life human being with some truly rough scenes to watch. The cinematography isn’t too much to rave about but I found the script really good and the small details makes this film better than most sports movies. As the editing really puts you into the game and makes you invested and easy to watch what is going on. That is why I really like this movie. 9/10

Votes: 3,177

Red, White and Blue is amazing. I haven’t watch all the Small Axe films yet but I do have high hopes if they are all as good as Red, White and Blue. I chose this one first because of John Boyega. I heard he gives a powerhouse performance and no lies detected. He gives it his all in this well timely film about not just police brutality but for me the big take away is that it is easier to blend in than it is to break the mold. To me that is as meaningful and important because of what has been happening. This was shot before the 2020 BLM movement but again this tale will also be a topic of conversation for years and decades to come. 9/10

I remember this story so I knew the tragic take it was going to lead into which made so much harder to watch. First of all we have to remember that people back when this was happening on his side. Which brings my mind back to all these serial killer docs about these horrible disgusting men and these women who try to defend their actions. Which this doc shows at the end how history repeats itself. That is just below to what this evil disgusting trash excuse of a human being did to his family. It is hard for anyone who doesn’t even know this story to watch. It is a well put together documentary that because it is from body cams from cops, security cams, and Facebook post that really captures these people who can’t speak for themselves. It is really sad and seriously fuck this guy with all my heart. I hate even calling him a guy that is how much I’m furious by his actions that it makes me sick knowing what he has done. It is just furious to see that sub title and how accurate it fits what goes down and the statistics about murder from spouses is just sickening. I don’t know man after watching this really made just sick those poor girls it is just truly sad. And again I didn’t know he came out and try to put the blame on the wife first but I knew like 80% of this story. But they are more to this story. 9/10

The movie may not be perfect or a revelation of cinema but holy crap does Leigh Whanall and star Elizabeth Moss makes this one awesome and hell of a ride. When it comes down to scares this film has it, when it comes to electric camera work to invite the audience in on the action. But some of the twist and turns can be called from a mile away. But again Elizabeth Moss is in every scene and she carries this film on her shoulders. The 2 hrs just fly by and it is an awesome ride. 9/10

Votes: 39,402

I will always be in the mood for some original trippy science fiction body horror. And this is it. It is very weird tho because while it is a slow pace movie a lot happens. The way David Cronenberg lets his movie be fast moving while at the same time slow paced is amazing. It is pretty short as well I mean it says 1h and 43m but ultimately it is an hour and a half. But it never dragged I was always captivated as what was happening on screen. Mainly because I had no idea what was going on. Not in the Tenet way of not knowing what is going on no matter how many people try explain what is going on. This truly is the less said the better. Because no one is holding your hand explaining what’s going on showing a gruesome and I mean gruesome scene and then waiting for the next person to explain what the hell just happen. Trying to put the pieces together yourself while the movie is happening is part of the fun. But honestly tho it is not perfect. Inconsistency’s a big problem with this movie and some things happened way too conveniently for the main character to move along to the next scene. My other problem is a very conflicted one. Because I love violence I mean this film is brutal and it never shy away from the brutality. I mean this thing is a meaty punch. With a kick ass lead assassin from Andrea Riseborough. It’s funny cause I recently saw another female led action film that is pretty bad. Again unlike Tenet I do have a desire to go back and watch that film because I got what I got out of that film. This film is something that I do want to go back and watch so it might actually go up on my list but as of right now it is not too high. 8/10

40. Greenland (2020)

Director: Ric Roman Waugh | Stars: Gerard Butler , Morena Baccarin , Roger Dale Floyd , Scott Glenn

Votes: 121,282

Holy crap do I love this movie. It is so refreshing to watch a film that has wait for it, a good script. This script is amazing and the characters are so damn good but not overly good, for example trying to hard for the audience to like them. Gerald Butler is flawed and he is not the everyday hero like you see in a lot of disaster movies with over narration or hell cracking jokes every 5 minutes. He is so pulled back that I actually bought him being an everyday guy. To be fair it is a disaster movie so you can only go as far as you can with a story like this. It is a non stop thrill ride that has no time to stop because it is a ticking clock to stay alive. So that initial threat is actually scary. To me I was frighted and feared for this family. Morena Baccarin also I have to say in the beginning I didn’t like her character until a certain point I felt for her and got where she is coming from. The kid is also pretty good. But I have to say Ric Roman Waugh has been killing it. As a director, Shot Caller, Angel Has Fallen, and Greenland have been an amazing range he has done with very minimal budget he has. The relationship Gerald and Ric are reminding me of Cruise and Christopher relationship they been having. So this duo is also very exciting to see what they do next. I really enjoyed this movie and couldn’t recommend this movie more. Yes you have seen this movie before, but duller and less serious. This is a very taunt and intense movie with excellent acting and directing this movie rocks. 9/10

Votes: 22,267

This is an old fashion lean and mean 90 minute thrill ride. Alone is your typical lost in the woods being hunted type movie and for the better it reminds me of this book I have been reading The Passenger. Sure another movie that came out in 2018 called What We Live For is basically the same movie but a lot of movies take this idea and try to make something of their own. Not only is the lead a very smart and bad ass person you route for I was genuinely curious to see what will happen next. These type of movies work better with silence not knowing when or what will happen next is all part of the fun. Only a couple of times I made a o cmon type moment when stupidity hit but it is actually pretty smart screenplay and knows how to handle the phone situation. These type of movies work best when you are in the shoes of the many character and she does the things you would do in the situation. So as a 90 minute thriller you really can’t go wrong. 8/10

It does go on for a little too long but that being said this cast does it best to move you along to stay and watch. The story is very simple a group of friends join together to celebrate a friends birthday. You probably think two hours of that can get pretty boring. But from the get go I was so invested to go along and just enjoy myself. Which I did. I laugh I had a real good time with this movie. The cast is a big help but I want to touch on the actual dialogue that is pulse pounding entertaining as hell. This is like Tarantino type of wit and charm. I mean listen I’m pretty sure in real life no one actually talks it’s only in movies where this sort of stuff happens. Because this is based off of a stage play and a majority of this film takes place in a house you really can feel claustrophobic watching this. Which is something I never like but I can see that being a plus for some people. Back to the writing because at least I was enjoying something while being stuck inside Jim Parsons’ apartment. Which I have not just the acting is obviously good because these are competent actors who get the job done but they can channel some real gut punching lines that will leave you convinced you are not watching actors. Seriously this is some of the best acting of the year because for the first time in a while I wasn’t seeing actors play characters I legit saw these characters and myself giving them my undivided attention. Now onto the cast. Jim Parsons in the beginning is lovable and is totally being Sheldon but it is the second half which is where he takes a darker turn and you see just how cruel someone him can be. And again I didn’t see Jim Parsons he really owned this role. Zachary Quinto has never been better I always gravitate towards background characters who watch from afar and make quick remarks because that is something I would myself. And he is not the lead or I wouldn’t say the co lead. The story does center around him because it is his birthday they are celebrating but his calm and cool demeanor is something to admire at. Matt Bomer proves that Hollywood is seriously not taking this guy serious or the great potential he could be. He should be leading a $100+ million dollar franchise because he is just so damn good and a true friend to Michael no matter how rude he gets. But my favorite two performances and also storyline is Andrew Rannells and Tuc Watkins. Brilliant and heartbreaking watching these two on screen. The rest of the cast is really good and if you have two hours to kill I would say this movie is not a bad way to spend it. On a side note as a 20 year old something straight male I have no idea what gay men have gone through hell let alone what it was like in the 50’s no less. But this isn’t a society struggle gay movie instead it is a self sabotage struggle movie. These characters just happen to be gay. Sadly it’s these men who are having trouble loving themselves and having others love them. Which makes it even more tragic. That is what makes this movie special. 8/10

44. Tenet (2020)

PG-13 | 150 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.

Director: Christopher Nolan | Stars: John David Washington , Robert Pattinson , Elizabeth Debicki , Juhan Ulfsak

Like most film lovers Nolan can do no wrong. And like new film fans we can see what Nolan gets wrong. Seriously him, Tarantino are untouchable when they release a new project and I feel like this new age of filmmakers are picking up where they left off. Not to say they still can’t make great movies but the Mementos, Pulp Fiction, Insomnia, Jackie Brown, and Reservoir Dogs days are over for these two filmmakers. And nothing is wrong with that it is just an observation what there career has become. And the reason why I’m comparing QT and Nolan is because their last two films are great looking, beautifully acted with one exception, awesome scenes of action and violence, and of course willing to tell original stories that no studio would dare to intervene with the story telling. And that is the biggest problem with both OUATIH and Tenet is the script and the writing get in the way of the story they are trying to tell. Like I said Nolan is no joke when it comes to making movies that is a damn sure. Only he can put together something this insane this thought provoking and thrilling in action set piece after action set piece. The movie tho really does grab your attention with the time inversion technique and hopes you follow along and does not hold your hand. Which again would be ideal for a Summer blockbuster because we hardly get any of these types of movies. But every line in this movie is either exposition for the time inversion which still have no idea how it completely works or the other half is actually the best part which is Kenneth Branagh Bond villain type being the best part in this movie. Even Robert Battison is really good in this role but we know nothing about him or they are not hints as to what he brings to the table. At least John David Washington proves in the beginning that he cares about his team but I still find it hard to believe what is making him protect Elizabeth Debicki and her son. Who he has never met. And it is a trope I’m really getting tired off. But at least it is their. Which actually makes me realize something. Nolan for all his greatness is not that great with writing female characters. He does at least try here with two female characters who are not the same and I appreciate that part that these are not the same two characters. So that is a plus but since I am talking about JDW it hurts me to tell say that he might be the weakest part of the film. Right next to the script. He’s fine and I’m glad to see an African American lead a $200 plus million dollar film. Seriously it’s impressive and when he is doing the action scenes he is great but how much is him and the stunt double. One last note two things that people have a problem with Nolan are the sound design which yes can be a problem at times but that didn’t bother me but also and this was my awakening is that people have called his films cold. Comparing him and Kubrick which I call totally bs on. Both filmmakers are capable pulling emotion in many of their films. Interstellar is emotional, Inception has heart and compassion which makes you route for the characters, hell even Dunkirk has more emotional pull that Tenet. Seriously I have always pushed back on people calling Nolan a cold filmmaker but after seeing Tent I can honestly say I see it all now. Overall I do like the movie. It is one of his weaker movies which is a shame because I love Nolan I would be considered a Nolan fan boy and I still am but this is just a missed opportunity from a story telling aspect and even the dialogue isn’t memorable in the slightest way possible. But I have to say this is one hell of a ride which I was glad to be apart of and hopefully one day I can rewatch it again. At home of course hell f- going to the movies again this might be the last time I go until there is a vaccine. I didn’t have a bad experience I took all of the precautions but still I would much rather say home and watch this movie. Nolan don’t know the set up I got at my house, it works for me and forget eating at the movies at least at home I can get up eat and drink whatever I want without disturbing others. 8/10

Votes: 90,692

I’ll say this even tho I saw the ending or who is playing who but the way the story is untold is something it took me a while to understand. I mean this is a random as hell of a movie. Which to me I got and understood more in this movie than I did in Tenet. Which is a weird double feature because these movies are almost identical about time and how not to view everything linear. Both films are thriving for being trippy and one film benefits for being deep for the audience to watch it more than once. But that is Tenet for me I’m glad to have watch this once and no desire to watch it ever again but for that reason I never took this film serious and that is not a bad thing. I am not saying that as a negative instead it is a positive because it makes the viewing of the movie more enjoyable. I enjoyed the randomness of this movie and was willing to go along for this insane and crazy adventure because I did let the movie just go and listen to the dialogue and watch this incredible cinematography. It is a nice fun watch and a trippy movie at that. The ending tho is well a little confusing. I mean hell the reason why I don’t love this movie like a lot of people are falling head over heels for this movie. Because again I didn’t take this film as serious or philosophical because it does have deep meaning about memories and aging. Not getting old but aging and how our memories will try to reflect our lives but it’s so obvious that this film is about one thing. I don’t think this film is any deeper than people think and for me is what I assume and what maybe the author intended is to not see things as a straight line and to not take things so serious. The title does have a double meaning which is something I like and it only dawned on me when the meaning of the title switches characters or does it? I do like it but not a whole lot. 8/10

It is a very charming and at times very entertaining to watch. Everyone will say the costumes and the performances are great and they are really well. To me my favorite thing about this movie is how it is framed. Multiple times I said out loud wow these are some great shots. The camera placement in this movie is second to none especially when they are on carriages and the dance scene is a great example of what I’m talking about. Also the beginning is very hard to get into to me at least. But my favorite season section in the movie is Summer. Also yes Anya is great but bravo to the rest of cast who manages to keep you engage throughout the whole film. It is very enjoyable for people who like period pieces. And this is a really good. 8/10

47. Mank (2020)

R | 131 min | Biography, Comedy, Drama

1930s Hollywood is re-evaluated through the eyes of scathing social critic and alcoholic screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of Citizen Kane (1941).

Director: David Fincher | Stars: Gary Oldman , Amanda Seyfried , Lily Collins , Tom Pelphrey

Votes: 77,393

It is a directors movie. Meaning that sounds as boring to some but exciting to others to watch this film like watching an old movie. Yes David Fincher is probably one of the best in the game right now. Gone Girl is the last film he directed and it has been six years so in the mean time he killed it with Mindhunter. Which is also on Netflix so I implore you to watch one of the best tv shows made in the new millennium. Aside from being one of the most exciting engaging shows ever made almost the complete opposite. This film again just like Tarantino’s OUATIH and Nolan’s Tenet it is a cold and not an engaging enough of a film. It is so damn expertly made film from sound and beautiful cinematography to also Trent Renzor score which Fincher is a bad ass at mixing it so damn well with some scenes. He is a perfectionist and it shows, with the dialogue, some shots look straight out of a painting, and I mean it goes without saying the acting is phenomenal. But I think one performance is not getting enough respect and lost in the crowd. Tuppence Middleton as Mank’s wife is probably the one character who is the most inviting character who you actually feel for throughout the whole movie. Quite like Scorsese’s The Irishman Ana Paquion she is the one character who the audience may actually find something to gravitate towards. Other actors in both movies are great as acting goes and I would love to study this acting as these actors are speeding thur some lines with ease. It is amazing to watch but even with all the alcoholism Mank goes into he really does just come off as an incompetent drunk where I think he could have been someone who is driven by alcoholism with his job and the pressure it has. Which is why I wished the film took a similar approach with his gambling. To me his gambling addiction is more subtle and that actual got to me more than him being an alcoholic. Which is fine but the story to me doesn’t pick up until the third act and that is a problem also the poster is a freaking lie. He never gets on a table and starts yelling at all these rich snobs about how wrong they are if anything they laugh him out of the room. Gary Oldman is always great and again his line reading is second to none with greatness to watch. So if you love directing and acting yeah watch it but I don’t think this is a life changing experience which again why Tenet is not a slam dunk of a film like we wanted it to. But I am excited to see what Fincher has to show us next because he is a great director. 8/10

I love this movie. Holy crap this movie had me laughing so hard. I wasn’t really expecting to like this movie so much. Flat out amazing from the two lead awesome and hilarious performances really kick this movie into high gear. This movie actually has consequences and not too dramatic but it took the realistic route which is something I truly admire. Watch it on Hulu cause there is nothing in theaters right now to watch so watch this and have a great freaking time. 9/10

Votes: 33,412

It’s funny cause this premiered the same weekend another father daughter comedy drama was released. Borat 2 does have a sweeter ending but I really enjoyed this film. And I actually prefer this film over Borat 2. By every aspect from direction to writing to yes even comedy. The fact that I laughed more at a Sofia Coppola film rather than a Borat film says a lot. And it wasn’t like it was one scene of laughter and that was it, no I was getting a kick out of this movie from all the performances. Except from Marlon Waynes. Yes Marlon Waynes is the least funny person in the movie. Bill is still as charming as his skin holds him together and that is a compliment because he still looks damn good. Hell is slamming more chicks in his old age than I am in my young age. Rashida Jones takes a co lead role which honestly I would never have thought she would get a chance like this. She does dabble a lot in tv which you would think she can’t lead a film but again she proves an actor acts. Sofia Coppola has made some good movies before but this to me is something I can get behind and recommend to almost anybody. 8/10

Screw it. I laughed, cheered, and cried. This movie for ever how long it is never over stayed its welcomed because of the good time I had watching this very joyous experience to have. Listen when you have been locked up in your home for 9 months a movie that has this much heart into it will get something emotional out of me. It also helps to bring out the tears when Jo Ellen Pellman and Ariana DeBose are just so damn good in this movie. Truly magnificent to see two bright up and comers be so damn likable that damn when their heart breaks your heart breaks. Yeah the rest of the cast is there and with the exception of Keegan Michael Key and Andrew Rannells are also really good and likable. The last two songs I have to say are the best and even Love Thy Neighbor is also really good. I had a great time watching this film. 9/10

Do you remember a 2015 movie called The Invitation starring Upgrade star Logan Marshall-Green. Where this is pretty much literally the same movie with even the same ending. But this film actually does what that film gets wrong for me and gets right. It gets to the point quicker and is much more awkward feeling throughout the movie. I feel like the direction and writing here are top notch and this feels like a film Mike Flanagan or David F. Sandberg would direct early in there career. The only thing holding this film back for me is the acting. Some of the acting even from the lead are pretty bland and just plain bad. But I have to say that ending for me is much more better than that film because of the impact it has. Seriously it pretty much is the same movie. But I like the uneasy feeling this film has and this is a white knuckle thriller that is brutal and all fun which is something we all need right now. It is on Netflix so check this film out. 8/10

52. Disclosure (2020)

An in-depth look at Hollywood's depiction of transgender people and the impact of those stories on transgender lives and American culture.

Director: Sam Feder | Stars: Laverne Cox , Bianca Leigh , Jen Richards , Alexandra Billings

Votes: 5,715

Which makes this documentary very interesting is how people apart of the LGBTQI+ community see themselves in a different part of history. Not the start of transgender people but instead how media can be use as a positive representation. Which dawned on me while I was watching the documentary. Because honestly those are the only opinions that truly matter when talking about representation. It is a very informative documentary as well about media which already increased my interest because this is something that I find truly interesting. How media can work as a tool to help people from all spectrums of the world see themselves in a positive light where they are not given it in the real world. Which even before you say well that’s not realistic yes these people in this documentary are aware of what they see on screen is not a reflection of real life but instead what they wished it could. And don’t we all do that when we watch movies and tv. It’s a great documentary which I hope people even not from the LGBTQI+ like myself take the time to see why positive stories and representation are important to tell. But I already knew that however I didn’t know what people from the trans community thought of this, which made me like this doc so much more. 9/10

A very fun and exciting action film with some actual stakes with this feeling someone can die. Actual die. Several times I actually believed that it would be their last time they get to come back. The whole cast is great together even The Old Guard team are awesome and pull off the fight scenes with ease. The villain could have been a little better and one villain in particular who has a change of motivation that is kinda ridiculous. It could have been better. But even putting that aside it is still a really good action film with some bad ass characters who I would really love to see a sequel. The action may not be high octane but it is still visibly seen and you can feel the punches and bullets going into them. It is a very fun ride that I’m glad to have seen. I wouldn’t have mind seeing this on the big screen but it was nice to watch it at home. But huge shoutout to my boy Matthias S. Who played Booker. He is awesome and I loved what they did with his character. Honestly I’m probably more excited to see the sequel of this film because the set up during this film was handed so well but even this film itself was still good to hold up on its own. 8/10

This movie isn’t Shakespeare or the next Nolan film but this is a full on bloody exploitation film that will make any gore hound love this movie. A serious misstep is Shudder not acquiring this film to be a Shudder original. Seriously this would have been a great film for that streaming service. Make no mistake this is not a perfect film, but it is the film for me the type I would love to make. Die Hard meets Home Alone what more could you love. First Kevin James is amazing in this film and I will not say that lightly because I am not a fan of the guy. And honestly the rest of the cast is pretty good but the main driving focus is Lulu Wilson who is awesome. She is brutal and just like Die Hard you do cheer her on and route for her to get what she wants. It is a real joy to watch and I’m a huge action horror fan and the more gore the better and this has plenty of it. Get some popcorn grab a beer and enjoy the hell out of this film. 9/10

55. Lingua Franca (2019)

Unrated | 89 min | Drama

An undocumented Filipina transwoman falls in love in Brooklyn.

Director: Isabel Sandoval | Stars: Eamon Farren , Lynn Cohen , Shiloh Verrico , Megan Channell

I’ll try my best to make this sound like a compliment but it does feel like a festival film. Which that does come with its own merits. For example some festival movies are done with a low budget and don’t have much to say. Some tho do have big names attached and those are the ones that get the most attention. This little film however doesn’t have a huge star attached to it and it does fit that low key type of movie. I do have to say with the subject matter that this film tackles I never felt preached to. Yes it has a liberal agenda one which I stand by completely but it points the finger at the everyday individual. Those who are rarely seen in a positive light. So our lead here does deal with some heavy subject matter. And if anything we see it take a toll on her. Expertly I might add because it is not over the top in any way. This is the type of film I can honestly say anyone can tune into and get something out of it. It can hard hitting when it wants to be but it can also be uplifting in certain areas. Which is something I wanted out of this film. It did leave me wanting more which I don’t know if it is a good thing or not. Because at the end I did feel like I was missing something. The movie is only something like 80 minutes long so I have a feeling I should go back because I do like this movie quite a bit but I just don’t love it. 8/10

I thought it was awesome. It’s only 83 minutes long and it freaking rocks. Chloë Grace Moretz has never been better, the special effects are also top notch and entirely realistic. I like how most of the movie takes place in one confined space. Nick Robinson is always fun to watch but this is Chloë Grace Moretz movie through and through. So she nails it. I love a lean and mean bare bones film that knows what it is and an explosive of a good time. 8/10 it’s awesome.

This ending is insane. You really have to see it to believe it. First half is actually really good and it makes you believe you are watching one film. Then the last half is not a complete 180 but it is a little change of pace that boom when that ending hits you honestly can’t take your eyes off the screen. I have to say there is a lot of talk about modern movies having an agenda but here is a movie that again has one motive and go for broke stays on that path until the very end. It is a crazy of an ending that please check this film out and watch it. 8/10

I wasn’t loving this movie in the beginning. I mean it is well shot and well acted. But strangely unlike most movies now days this third act packs in so much of the scares, thrills, and even laughs. I wasn’t a huge fan of Dear White People either. The movie that is never watched the show, however with this being the directors second film I see a huge improvement. With acting, writing, and I love his movement with the camera. He doesn’t just put the camera down and let the actors act. Instead his camera is following our lead with every move. A new and surprising lead was a nice change of pace. Most of the cast is new actors who are new to me is what makes me like this movie more and more. Because her arc is screenwriting 101. Especially for this type of movie. It actually reminded me a lot of Venom in most parts and I love body horror and this is a great body horror film that I have been waiting for. 8/10

It’s a very fun lighthearted adventure. I have been waiting for a good mystery and it is nice to see a film that is a bare bones witty and affectionate story of a young woman trying to find her place in the world where it is set upon for others to make decisions for them. MBB is really good here and really likable. She kinda reminded me of Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil franchise. To me this is a very fun enjoyable film that keeps its pacing racing thru to the very end. Even HAC storyline I was invested in because this was something women in England were fighting for hell all over the world. But it is matched with Enola and her own story of trying to solve this other mystery that is equally exciting and engaging. The remaining cast Superman and Sam Claffin are both extremely perfectly cast and even tho they might not have big parts they are still a real pleasure to see light up the screen. It is not perfect but it is a fast and enjoyable film that doesn’t over do breaking the 4th wall too much which is something I always appreciate. 8/10

This is a great double feature with this film and Host. Both movies are filmed all different type of the found footage genre has evolved over the years. But holy crap this film is so good. Let me get the negatives out of the way, for one it loses steam towards the third act where it typically turns into something that I for one saw coming compared to the rest of the film where it was very unpredictable in where this film was going. But the third act is saved by that incredible ending credits that really wraps what the film is driving home by what the social media fame does to people and the the type of people who thrive to succeed fame. We are experiencing this on a day to day basis of seeing the lengths people will go, hell a guy just got arrested for pulling a heist prank. This is far off. I mean sick disgusting idiots post vids of themselves claiming to kill people before they do and then the news and media outlets put it out there for millions of people to see. But nevertheless this is still one of the most inventive and crazy film I have seen all year. It truly inspires me to see a film like this made this way to fully understand their are still different ways to make films. I honestly can’t stress how much the ending hits the nail on the head of the overall message of this film. Because without Joe Keery’s amazing and phenomenal performance this film will not be anything without him. He shines and proves he is a great actor. If Steve wasn’t already my favorite character in ST then this just solidifies why. 8/10

If you love being scared like me then holy crap you will love this movie. 2020 has had a lot to offer and how quickly a movie was able to be made during quarantine was bound to happen. Hell Zday and Denzel’s son made a whole movie which will probably be longer than this. But for now this film is a nice surprise because this scared the crap out of me. Like wow I love how scary this movie is. I am not easily scared and yes I called all the jump scares. Like from a mile away I saw all the techniques a low budget horror film like this will do. Slam doors, objects moving, and of course flour. It’s all their. But I love every minute of this very short film because it is under a hour but I felt more satisfied watching this film than I have with some films that are well over a hour and a half. It is a paranormal film and it does have a lot of similarities with that film. Hell even Unfriended did this film but I like this film better because it got to its point faster and scarier. Like I was clinching my toes together like there was no tomorrow. All horror fans should watch this at night and like me alone, or unlike me watch it with a bunch of people and get scared the crap out of. 2020 is fitting with some of the scariest films to go along with the scariest year we have had. It sucks. 8/10

A holiday romantic comedy that captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family's acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.

Director: Clea DuVall | Stars: Kristen Stewart , Mackenzie Davis , Mary Steenburgen , Victor Garber

Votes: 43,026

I got to say Mackenzie Davis did some terrible things in this movie almost to a point where I was screaming at KStewart to just leave her. Seriously I was screaming you can do better you don’t deserve this. Because I was getting mad that she hasn’t told her parents that Mackenzie Davis’ character is gay and that KStewart is supposedly her straight roommate. I mean it is a classic Hollywood mix up and it is your typical holiday misunderstanding family comedy drama. And on that front it is a funny movie. Dan Levy is really funny but also scene stealer and co writer Mary Holland is really funny but also heartbreaking at the same time. I would be lying if I didn’t cry because a couple of times it got to me. But also it is not a movie that so heavy handed with the idea of acceptance. Yes it has elements of that and Dan Levy has one moment in particular that shows that not everyone is accepting. But it is not just about being gay or acceptance of homosexuality but also just not being perfect. Especially in the eyes of people who raised you to be perfect your whole life. I got that at the end. But when KStewart started to cry I began to cry because I did feel for her pain and it was just a nice sweet holiday movie anyone can enjoy. Along at the end I was coming around so I wasn’t hating on Mackenzie Davis’ Harper that much but so I was glad they did end up together because it is nice to see a happy ending every once and a while. It truly is the happiest season. At least for me. 8/10

65. Palm Springs (2020)

R | 90 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Mystery

Stuck in a time loop, two wedding guests develop a budding romance while living the same day over and over again.

Director: Max Barbakow | Stars: Andy Samberg , Cristin Milioti , J.K. Simmons , Peter Gallagher

Votes: 165,101

Probably the biggest surprise not of the Summer but of the year. Which isn’t that hard but this is the film. A very funny cast that lightens up some much needed time because it is not even 90 minutes. It is at a break neck speed with fast and funny dialogue that I never got bored of. Both of these characters are so damn likable and charming it is almost contagious. Do I think it needed to be the most expensive movie to be bought out of any festival, no. Plus it does seem like a waste if they were going to release it on a streaming service but it was nice to watch it at home. Even if it did have an original plan to open in theaters before the pandemic hit, Neon studios haven’t been rolling in the box office with any of their films. But this was a nice surprise and had plenty of laughs with a nice twist on an old genre. 8/10

66. Bad Boys for Life (2020)

R | 124 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett must face off against a mother-and-son pair of drug lords who wreak vengeful havoc on their city.

Directors: Adil El Arbi , Bilall Fallah | Stars: Will Smith , Martin Lawrence , Vanessa Hudgens , Alexander Ludwig

Votes: 164,701 | Gross: $206.31M

The bad boys are back and better than ever. Fun, action pack, and extremely funny. The duo directors here are able to create this simple story to feel epic and have some weight to it. I felt like the story made this seem important and you feel for not only for Marcus and Mike but for the whole cast of characters who want the same thing. Also if I can get a little political this film doesn't get political about the race nor gender. What I mean by that is the villains who are apart of the Mexican Cartel but that isn't their motive. I remember when Rami Malek took the Bond villain role he said he doesn't want to type cats as a stereotypical Middle Eastern villain. Instead a villain who has its own motive and not tied to anything out of reach. Im looking at you last blood. 8/10

67. The King of Staten Island (2020)

Votes: 11,105

Holy crap. What a fresh and fun movie to be hold. Both lead performances from the two young women are outstanding and stand out from some veteran actors. It is not just the acting that is good but the editing is tightly paced which makes this flow so fast that the time flys by without ever noticing. Among the acting, the editing, the beautiful cinematography, but the score and the song that shares the same title is so damn entertaining to listen to. It really matches with the story in which every beat matches the tone to make every situation more serious. If you hate it when movies add in jokes where it is suppose to be a high stake situation this film doesn’t have that. Which is a nice change of pace, but I don’t want that type of humor to go away. 8/10

69. #Alive (2020)

TV-MA | 98 min | Action, Drama, Horror

The rapid spread of an unknown infection has left an entire city in ungovernable chaos, but one survivor remains alive in isolation. It is his story.

Votes: 42,144

I didn’t expect to like this movie so much. After the disappointment of Train to Busan 2: Peninsula I really needed my zombie fix. Zombie movies are usually my favorite sub genre of horror films. Because you really can take the zombie genre in any direction it is all about the script and direction. Which are all top notch seriously they are some really good shots in this movie and really great performances especially from a really likable lead actor. He was really good in a more connectable way he wasn’t in Burning. He is great in Burning but vastly different. He isn’t the smartest character in a zombie movie but the relatability factor of him is what keeps myself and probably many others touting for him to survive. It is a very fast moving funny and surprising touching near the end. I mean it if you didn’t enjoy the high octane action pack violence that is Train to Busan 2 than this will more than fulfill that itch. 8/10

70. Over the Moon (2020)

PG | 95 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Votes: 23,267

I’m not a kid anymore, well not a little kid anymore. But I have to say even tho this film does lean toward a little more childish than I would like, it still manage to get a tear out of my eye. It’s crazy it is only 90 minutes long and I was still more attached to these characters than I have in most 2 hour movies. It is nice to see a very colorful, imaginative, and a plain just enjoyable animation film. The pure fantasy aspect of this film is what makes me like film as much as I do. I mean the emotional aspect about family and lost is touching and quite sad. I wasn’t fully into it in the beginning Manila because I saw all that before and coming so it was predictable but the fantasy aspect the the songs is what won me over. But it was with the help of teaching young kids that people close to you will eventually die and we are the ones who are left behind need to move on. I thought that was really touching and emotional. So overall I do like the movie and from the looks of other animated films to come out this year it is among the best and should be nominated. 8/10

71. Bad Education (2019)

TV-MA | 108 min | Biography, Comedy, Crime

Director: Cory Finley | Stars: Hugh Jackman , Ray Romano , Welker White , Allison Janney

Votes: 41,374

It may not be a home run as I suspected because of the story. However, this is still a very satisfying movie to watch because these people got what they deserved in the end but also in the beginning as you are watching both Wolverine and Mrs. Mom Mom do an incredible job acting there way through this crazy story. The supporting cast of characters are fun to watch but they are not in the movie a whole lot. This movie couldn’t be more relevant today than ever but I still think a story like this can work to bring more eyes to it. HBO is a good start for people in this time to watch it but a Corin Hardy who made Thoroughbreds a couple years ago which worked well as a stage play made this kinda feel like this as well. A solid good movie. 8/10

72. Uncle Frank (2020)

R | 95 min | Comedy, Drama

Director: Craig Zobel | Stars: Betty Gilpin , Hilary Swank , Ike Barinholtz , Wayne Duvall

Votes: 117,725 | Gross: $5.81M

This movie shouldn’t have been so controversial last year causing it to move up from its original release date. Because I feel like the movie is fair on both sides and is not afraid to kill off these characters in brutal and fast ways. Which makes this way more entertaining. It’s funny, action pack, and even thrilling in some parts. It is a crap ton of fun. Is rent $20 dollars worth it? Maybe because it depends on who you watch it with. Cause it is a fun movie to watch with other people. And the fight at the end is awesome. 8/10

Votes: 18,550

If you love, crazy, and insane films like David Lynch’s Inland Empire or hell most like his films then this will it do it for you. This film is held by an incredible lead performance by Alison Brie who has never been better. She is on screen throughout the whole film and never leaves you bored. She is scary good. Because it is a paranoid performance filled with surreal sequences that make you double think what you are watching. Jeff Baena who directed so so movies before this, to me this is his best film. Maybe it is because Alison Brie co wrote the script with him and the change between the score and colors are amazing. Netflix is still delivering pretty trippy and bold films most studios would be afraid to back up. 8/10

Listen I love and deeply miss this show and especially Kimmy Schmidt and the whole gang. Listen either it a movie or not but this is my type of humor. Plus the interactive angel is so great. It is a real pleasure to be invited to this crazy world that really has no boundaries. So much subtle jokes that will go over your head if you are not paying attention. That is what makes this whole idea of what this show represents so great and so much fun to watch again and again. Ellie Kemper will always put a smile on face as this character her native and fish out of water scenarios are something to enjoy for everyone because they are laughs coming from all directions and I couldn’t have a better time watching this. 8/10

Director: Brett Haley | Stars: Elle Fanning , Justice Smith , Alexandra Shipp , Kelli O'Hara

Votes: 33,814

A real big surprise. A good surprise because it is held by two very strong young performances and a hell of a score. It is touching yet still has a light sense of humor about itself. The high school stuff kinda gets in the way of some things but for me the first half is really good. It is funny light hearted fun. The second half is when the big issues this movie tackles very maturely I might add. But the film is not perfect but man I did cry and it has a good message. 7.5/10 that score man.

79. The Assistant (III) (2019)

R | 87 min | Drama

Director: Kitty Green | Stars: Julia Garner , Owen Holland , Jon Orsini , Rory Kulz

Votes: 23,713

It’s a very very low key type of movie. The movie is filled with our main character, Julia Gardner, doing everyday activities. Basically we see her being The Assistant. Which is showcase for why she is capable of holding a movie all on her own. Because she is in every frame in this movie. The camera never leaves her and I love it. Her performance is all beneath the surface and we learn from other people who she is because she doesn’t talk about herself. Her and Haley Bannet from Swallow should be considered for best actress of the year and be remembered just as being great performances. This movie actually should be shown to young filmmakers who want to make a movie for a very low price and very quick. The shooting of this film takes place all in one day in one office building and it took less than a month to shoot. And you get someone who has an Emmy for tv who wants to expand her portfolio to show she can do films and she is the biggest name in the film. Genius. One another impressive aspect of the film is also the camera placements in this film. Every shot feels important how after watching it and reflecting back on the film I got all the meanings behind the camera placements because we never lose focus of our main character. That is why she is not going to just be Ruth in Ozark she will be great in a lot of other films. 7.5/10

I love these girls. Well I am just a huge fan of not only their music, but also there work effort. The amount of time and work they put in to master perfection for millions of people. I only care about the music because I really do enjoy BLACKPINK. I don’t go over board with the fandom but hell it is really hard to deny how amazing these four women are and how they changed the world. Seriously that is not an overstatement these women have done so much for k-pop and women artists in general because they are a force to be reckon with. Like how does a Mexican American 20 year old something male find so enjoyment out of these women’s songs. It’s just so damn inspiring to watch these women work day in and day out. It is also on the basis of this documentary is so fun to watch these women who really all started just by having a dream and a passion for singing to then becoming this huge stain on the music industry I mean they truly deserve it. 8/10

Don’t judge gosh darn it. Sure I’m a straight male in his 20’s who clearly has nothing better to do with his life. But TS has a really cool documentary and I even like her past documentaries like Reputation. But that went on too long. This is a lean mean 85 minutes that is actually a lot of fun. I’m sure there will be a lot of other documentaries to come out this year. So I can’t wait for that.

Votes: 245,047 | Gross: $84.16M

A real mix bag. While I like all the actors especially Jurnee Smollett-Bell, which her on hot ones is hilarious. But I can’t go as far and say it is a good movie. I saw a lot of good ideas in there and this could have been a Harley Quinn against all of Gotham after her break up with Mr. J. But sadly that is in the background. I wish there was a way that Black Mass was the accomplice with Harley Quinn to protect her and have to do missions and assembling Huntress and a Black Canary. That way it makes sense for her and these other women to come together and keep it open for further movies. Make them feel like a real team. But again that is not what they went with. O well, at least the police raid was pretty good.7/10 A flat 7

Truly awesome. With a cliffhanger season finale that will keep anyone waiting for the next season. All performances are grade A fantastic. Really good fight scenes to counter some real emotional moments. I love crime stories and this one really kept me on edge throughout the whole season. I’m so glad I get to binge this season because it is damn good. 10/10

Votes: 473,507

Scott Frank has done it again. I love him as a director and especially as a writer. 2017’s Godless is awesome, Logan is a masterpiece, and his directorial debut with The Lookout is amazing. Back to Godless which again is a 7 hour Netflix movie with amazing performances. With all this talk about representation for empowering females this is a tale for anyone who has lost it all with no hope and to take that opportunity because if you don’t you will be stuck in the same place for your whole life. This is very different from Godless, hell this is very different from most of Scott Frank’s work. Joy is without a doubt the star and commands your attention from the first minute she is on screen. It follows the formula of this type of story like so many do but I found it so intriguing and this is coming from someone who isn’t even a fan of chess. Full disclosure I kinda know how to play because oddly enough it was in a faculty not an orphanage but similar. This show deserves all of the attention it’s getting because it is so good. Watch it and you will not regret what a powerful 7 hour ride this is. 10/10

Season 3 is the best season and probably the best tv show to come out this year. It is awesome and totally worth the wait. I have always been a fan of this show. But even I got to say season 2 was a little better than okay, but this is beyond what I was expecting this season to become. And it couldn’t happen to a better show with an incredible cast of actors who kick ass in every episode that is in season 3. 10/10

Holy crap this show needs more attention. This is a brutal and captivating show about the struggle and discover of how far parents will go. Which in the long run makes this show better because both Chris and Michelle are not the perfect parents but they are the ones who you would want. All the acting is incredible, seriously top to bottom from actors who you have seen a lot from to actors you never heard of. Just 5 episodes in and I’m itching to see the end.

Season 2- Get ready to laugh, love, and cry. Can we just appreciate a show like this that can handle the complexities that other franchises can’t. Seriously this show has the guts to tackle what it is like for outsiders in the 60’s in the US. Seriously it boggles my mind how a show that probably doesn’t nearly have the budget of big summer blockbusters. A large part of that has to do with the cast. And holy crap with this second season everyone stepped up their A+ game. Not only just by acting but the stories. Omg I was invested so much with this story and how it all develops it is so satisfying. The story continues to move forward as the characters are thrown into different situations. Sure yes the plot is just this family is trying to stop the apocalypse again. But that is not what keeps the viewer entertained. I love every minute of this show and they work as a team and I’m so happy for all the characters to get their time to shine. Seriously you couldn’t possibly love these characters more. The overall theme of purpose and having the ability to do something important but their own faults get in the way. And it’s not life threading faults sometimes people just can’t escape their own demons. Which is cliche but this filled with so much unique style that you can’t look away from. O yeah and the music the f-ing music choices are beyond extraordinary. This and Watchmen handled the same themes of racism in America and it is not heavy handed it is actually quite sad. But it is an uplifting show because I was so happy and I had a smile on my face throughout the whole season. This season kicks season 1 out of the water and I love season 1. 10/10

This might be the best tv doc ever. Holy crap is this thing so insanely entertaining. And nothing crazy happens like a real life murder or goes to heavily into the childhoods of each individual. Their is that time to make it important but what I love is how much of the “now” it represents itself. Because while yes it does show footage from the 90’s it feels like I’m watching a once in a lifetime event. Which is something a lot of people at that time felt but for someone like me who is too young to know every bit of what happened I was enthralled. Every mark was hit here. And the last two episodes are the best seriously I was o. The edge of my seat with something I already knew what was going to happen. I love it and the use of music bravo. I love all the songs they played and it is just awesome to listen to. This is so much damn fun to watch. 10/10

Beautiful. Master class of storytelling spanning through two countries and two timelines that are so tightly paced that a show like this is made to watch all 4 episodes in one sitting. Not just the lead but all performances are great and breathtaking to watch and not to look away because each of the supporting characters don’t have a lot of scream time. But this show belongs to the lead. Shira Haas is without a doubt the driving force of this show and I could have watch her on this journey for so much longer. I do love that this is a 4 hour movie and that it is tho. Just like last year’s When They See Us. 4 episodes that is it and I couldn’t love it anymore. I actually want to read the real life woman’s memoir. The real woman who this series is based on is Deborah Feldman and her story is universal as they say in the making of the show and it is really true. One of my favorite shows hell one of my favorite films because this is a 4 hour movie. Just a real good piece of entertainment anyone can watch. I just hope come awards season this show isn't forgotten even with everything going on. This show deserves every award it gets for it being so damn good. 10/10

Netflix has killed the game again with Dark. Seriously take time out of your day and watch this masterpiece. It will be worth it. Now this is how you end a show. They did not f- with the final. It is bold to see a show like this have the impact it does. Even when the trailer for this final season came out it was trending, here in the US. When was the last time a trailer for a German tv show on any type of network trended in the US. Brilliant stuff and only three seasons to prove that this is one of the best shows out there.

Votes: 96,165

My advice if you have not seen all six episodes of this show just binge it. Like I did. I gained more enjoyment sitting in a full six hour over two days was just a fun time. Because honestly this is a 6 hour movie quite like The Queen’s Gambit is like a 6 and half hour movie. The binging model is perfect for shows that pick up exactly where the last episode left off. All the performances are great especially Hugh Grant who has never been better. And I always like Susanne Bier work and the directing is very tv like so it is not Scott Frank level directing of a movie. But it has some great shots pretty good foreshadowing some events I didn’t see coming and as always Nicole Kidman is still putting out evidence that she is in top 10 not just female actors but actors in general. Binge watch all 6 episodes and just have a good time. 9/10

100. Upload (2020– )

TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy, Mystery, Sci-Fi

A man is able to choose his own afterlife after his untimely death, by having his consciousness uploaded into a virtual world. As he gets used to his new life and befriends his angel (real world handler), questions about his death arise.

Stars: Robbie Amell , Andy Allo , Allegra Edwards , Zainab Johnson

Votes: 68,684

A real surprise. Seriously it is both fresh and really funny. It is like Downsizing meets The Good Place. Amazon may not be giving out hit after hit like Netflix every week. Or even shows that make any noise but for me it is a real nice comedy science fiction show. We hardly see those any more. Plus the episodes get more invented and so smart. If you need a good laugh then this is the show. Plus the further you get in the show it gets a little more and more emotional where you actual care what happens to people who are already dead. The whole cast deserves a shoutout especially Robbie Amell, but for Andy Allo to be so damn likable and not a cliche at all makes this show something special.

Best-Reviewed Movies 2020

This is the first time we’ve awarded films in a general ‘Best Movies’ category – previously, our biggest movie awards were Best Limited and Best Wide Release. We still have those categories this year, but we felt an overall “Best Movies” award was called for, too, given the very blurry lines between what was a wide, limited, and streaming release in 2020, with the shifting release calendar and inventive release strategies that some distributors were implementing. So, in this list you’ll find the best of the best – limited and wide theatrical releases, plus streaming titles. Céline Sciamma’s searing romance, Portrait Of A Lady On Fire , which got a lot of love last award’s season but was technically released in February of 2020, tops the category, followed by One Night In Miami , Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom , Soul , and The Invisible Man . That’s one limited release, three streaming releases, and a wide release – if you’re counting!

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of February 28, 2021. Scores might change over time.

Screen Rant

The 10 best movies of the 2020s (so far), ranked according to imdb.

Between superhero movies like The Batman and Spider-Man: No Way Home to slice-of-life dramas like Licorice Pizza, the 2020s is full of great movies.

So far, the cinema landscape in the 2020s has been fairly predictable, as superhero movies have reigned supreme. But, unpredictably, they are getting even more critical praise and love from general audiences than ever before. And even though it's less than a full three years into the decade, there have been so many pleasant surprises to hit movie theatres and streaming services.

RELATED:  10 MCU Action Sequences More Exciting Than The Final Battle

Between riveting period dramas, a jaw-dropping sci-fi epic, and an instant classic from a cinema auteur, there have already been several great movies released this decade. And even a non-Pixar animated movie has given the celebrated studio a run for its money.

Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings (2021) - 7.5

In 2014, John Wick popularized gun-fu and brought martial arts back into the fold when it comes to Hollywood action movies. The combat style was copied by so many major action movies, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is no different.

The movie has a fighting style unlike any other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the hand-to-hand combat is more thrilling than it ever has been in the 20+ movie franchise. Between the action and the use of Chinese culture and its mythological creatures, Shang Chi  quickly became a top-tier MCU movie. And with the success of both Shang-Chi and the Spider-Man movies, fans are hoping for a Shang-Chi and Spidey team-up movie .

Licorice Pizza (2021) - 7.5

Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson has a thing for the decade of disco and the San Fernando Valley, as most of his movies feature one or the other. In fact,  Licorice Pizza  features both. The 2021 movie is a coming-of-age film unlike any other, as the '70s-based comedy blends fictional characters with real-life people and events.

Licorice Pizza  follows 15-year-old Gary (Cooper Hoffman), who is opportunistic and finds inventive ways to make a quick buck, which leads to exploiting a gas crisis and the outlawing of pinball machines. It's one of the most creative dramedies of the past few years, and it has incredible performances from newcomers Hoffman and Alana Haim.

The Mitchells Vs. The Machines (2021) - 7.7

It's rare when a non-Pixar animated movie outdoes the famed studio in terms of its reception from general audience. Though Netflix's original movies don't always have a great reception,  The Mitchells vs. the Machines surprised everyone, and it's even rated higher the Pixar's Luca on the movie database, which was released in the same year.

RELATED:  10 Other Movies & TV Shows Starring The Mitchells Vs. The Machines Cast

The movie is about a dysfunctional family who is going through realistic struggles, only to find themselves in the middle of a robot apocalypse. Ironically, there are a lot of parallels between the 2021 movie and Pixar's very own The Incredibles .

The Trial Of The Chicago 7 (2020) - 7.8

With screenplays like The Social Network and Moneyball under his belt, Aaron Sorkin has proven himself to be one of the 21st century's top screenwriters, and the 2010s saw him get the itch for directing, too. Based on Molly's Game , Sorkin was clearly paying attention when on sets of the years, as it was a supremely accomplished directorial debut.

However, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is the work of a cinematic visionary, and not only is the typical razor-sharp dialogue everpresent, but it's visually stunning thanks to the 1960s production and costume design too. It also features phenomenal performances from Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne.

The Gentlemen (2020) - 7.8

The Gentlemen is very on-brand for writer-director Guy Ritchie, and it was hugely welcome in 2020, as he hadn't made a very British gangster flick in years. So many directors have tried to emulate Ritchie's over-the-top, comedically violent, Cockney crime movies ever since he established his style with Snatch , but none have been able to match the frantic energy.

The one that has come the closest is Ritchie's very own  The Gentlemen . Between myriad twists and turns and the perfect balance between suspense and humor,  The Gentlemen is Ritchie's best movie .

Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021) - 8.1

The original theatrically released Justice League is one of the  worst Batman movies ever . All of the studio interference not only inflated its budget, making even its $650 million box office gross a massive disappointment, but it also resulted in a messy, strangely color-graded, Frankenstein's monster of a movie.

However, Zack Snyder's Justice League  finally saw his original vision come to life. Any movie could be great if it was given four hours to build character development and the director was given an additional $70 million to add more action sequences. But regardless, the 2021 release is the most epic superhero movie ever made.

Dune (2021) - 8.1

Dune has had a long history in Hollywood, and until director Denis Villeneuve got his hands on the property, it seemed like the franchise was doomed. David Lynch's 1984 Dune earned him the worst reviews of his career, and Alejandro Jodorowski's Dune failed to get passed development .

However, Villeneuve elevated the source material into a genuine science-fiction epic, and the digital effects seamlessly blend in with the world better than any other blockbuster movie ever released. And as the 2021 movie only told the first part of the story, the sequel will be even better, especially considering how all the novel's most exciting parts come in the second half.

Soul (2020) - 8.1

Pixar is the greatest animated movie studio working today, and it always has been, as it has created some of the most magical and imaginative animations of all time.  Soul continues that trend, as it marks the studio's 11th movie that has an average rating of more than 8.0 on the movie database, and for good reason.

RELATED: 10 Turning Red Pixar Easter Eggs Spotted By Eagled-Eyed Redditors

Just like great Pixar movies  Coco and Inside Out , the 2020 movie attempts to teach children about something deeper than simply being a goofy movie with talking animals. This time, the film is about mortality, and it breaks down life and death in a way that's smart and doesn't talk down to kids.

The Batman (2022) - 8.4

The Batman immediately sky-rocketed to the top end of the Batman movie rankings, and that's because it's the movie that fans have been waiting for for so many years. Though the film ran into some issues in its third act, it's the first-ever Batman flick that actually depicted the character as "the world's greatest detective."

And even though the gold standard of Batman movies is the Dark Knight trilogy, there are so many ways  The Batman is better than Christopher Nolan's movies , whether it's the portrayal of Carmine Falcone or the gothic aesthetic. But the best thing the movie does is build a world that audiences are begging to see more of, even though the film is already three hours long.

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) - 8.6

With Spider-Man: No Way Home , Hollywood is one step closer to legitimizing superhero movies. Though the genre has been extremely popular over the past 15 years, there are still thousands of naysayers out there. However, No Way Home isn't just a brooding, "serious" movie; it leans into being a comic book movie more than any other.

It's full of fan service, intertwines movie universes, and even features the ridiculous line, "let's Scooby-Doo this crap." And despite all of that, the 2021 movie is still the 57th greatest film of all time according to IMDb. No Way Home  even managed to, somehow, retroactively make the bad Spider-Man movies great, and that's completely unprecedented.

Best New Movies Added to Netflix This Week: March 4th, 2023

We pick out 5 movies you should be watching on Netflix this weekend from the 80+ that got added this week.

This Is Where I Leave You Best New Movies on Netflix This Week March 3rd

This Is Where I Leave You – Picture: Warner Bros. Pictures

It’s finally the weekend, and if that means you’re settling in for a weekend of watching Netflix, allow us to give you four handpicked new movies and a new documentary that landed on the service in the US over the past seven days. 

Missed any of the new releases on Netflix this week? You can check out a full list of all the new titles plus daily recaps via our new on Netflix section .

Want even more movie recommendations? You can check out our picks of what’s coming up for the entire month of March or our favorite Netflix Original movies .

The Hunger Games (Four Movies)

Rating:  PG-13 Language:  English Genre:  Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi Director:  Gary Ross / Francis Lawrence Cast:  Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth

the hunger games saga now on netflix

Picture: Lionsgate

It’s always great when Netflix manages to pick up entire collections of movies, and that’s what it did on the first of the month with both The Hangover movies and, perhaps more unexpectedly, all four of The Hunger Games .

Likely serving as an early marketing tactic for the prequel movie out later this year, the movies adapt the excellent book series following Katniss Everdeen, who reluctantly finds herself fighting the capital.

Be warned, though – the window in which The Hunger Games will be carried on Netflix is extremely short, with all four movies only on Netflix US for 31 days (meaning it leaves at the end of March 2023).

Turbo (2013)

Rating:  PG Language:  English Genre:  Animation, Adventure, Comedy Director:  David Soren Cast:  Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph Writer:  David Soren, Darren Lemke, Robert Siegel Runtime:  96 min / 1h 36m

For the younger ones, Netflix relicensed Turbo , the animated movie from DreamWorks about racing snails.

The New York Post called the movie when it was released ten years ago “A fresh, fast and funny little fable.”

It also comes when the companion series to Turbo , Turbo Fast , has just started showing a removal notice for April 2nd on Netflix .

This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

Rating:  R Language:  English Genre:  Comedy, Drama Director:  Shawn Levy Cast:  Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda Writer:  Jonathan Tropper Runtime:  103 min / 1h 43m

Looking for a movie with lots of big recognizable stars coming together for a big ensemble comedy? This Is Where I Leave You fits the bill.

Directed by Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy, the 2014 movie is about a group of siblings having to return to their childhood homes and live under the same roof for a week.

ReelViews gave the movie a 75 rating saying:

“Even considering some of its late-innings flaws, this is an engaging movie that doesn’t mistake histrionics and bile for solid family reunion drama.”

Out of Africa (1985)

Rating:  PG Language:  English Genre:  Biography, Drama, Romance Director:  Sydney Pollack Cast:  Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Klaus Maria Brandauer Writer:  Karen Blixen, Judith Thurman, Errol Trzebinski Runtime:  161 min / 2h 41m

Given that we’re currently deep into Oscar season, it’s fitting that one of the unannounced titles that dropped on Netflix on March 1st is one of the most decorated Oscar movies in history.

A wealthy Danish woman moves to Nairobi to marry a baron but soon falls for a dashing big-game hunter who won’t be tied down.

The movie swept the ’86 Oscars winning best picture, director, and cinematography among their seven total pickups at the awards.

Split at the Root (2022)

Rating:  TV-PG Language:  English Genre:  Documentary Director:  Linda Goldstein Knowlton Runtime:  96 min / 1h 36m

Finally, we come onto the latest ARRAY release , which landed on Netflix in multiple countries, including the US, UK, Canada, and Austrlia. We’re discussing the new documentary by producers Lana Parrilla and Marti Noxon.

The documentary “follows the emotional journey of mothers separated from their children at the U.S. border and the grassroots initiative that, against all odds, reunites those families.”

Split at the Root has notably picked up the coveted NYT Critic’s Pick award, with the review calling the documentary a “powerful lens”.

Sorry We Missed You

This is an image

The evils of the gig economy are put under the microscope in brutal and long-overdue fashion in this compelling social drama, which centers on a British family struggling to make ends meet. After years of financial struggle since the 2008 crash, Ricky (Kris Hitchen) finally sees a chance to break out of his cycle of debt by becoming a self-employed delivery driver, but ends up trapped in a different and equally toxic situation.

Da 5 Bloods

preview for Da 5 Bloods – official trailer (Netflix)

A group of soldiers, who call themselves the Bloods, discover gold while in Vietnam. They decide to bury it and come back for it later, however, unexpected events lead to them not only losing it, but also their beloved squad leader. They return to the country years later in search for the remains of their friend and the gold. The action-packed movie touches on history, racism, greed, and brotherhood in a way only director Spike Lee could articulate.

This is an image

There’s no shortage of great big-screen Jane Austen adaptations, but Autumn de Wilde’s vivid reimagining of Emma plays by a different set of rules than most. The movie has big shoes to fill – after all, Emma already got a near-perfect and radical reinvention in 1995’s Clueless – and it succeeds, creating a sharply drawn and romantically engaging story that works both as a modern-minded satire and a timeless love story.

Miss Juneteenth

This is an image

Earning a nearly perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes , Miss Juneteenth follows Turquoise Jones (Nicole Beharie) and her daughter Kai (Alexis Chikaeze), on their journey to helping Kai be crowned Miss Juneteenth, a pageant title her mother had earned at her age. Throughout the film, the mother and daughter face a lot of ups and downs, but they do so together.

This is an image

Not one performance is lacking in this heartwarming film. The late Brian Dennehy plays Del, a Korean War veteran whose recluse next door neighbor has recently died. When her sister Kathy (Hong Chau) and nephew Cody (Lucas Jaye) come to clean out her home, Del befriends them both, and all three start to reexamine their lives.

On The Record

This is an image

This much-anticipated documentary debuted at Sundance this year, and focuses on the hip hop mogul Russell Simmons – specifically the multitude of sexual assault and harassment allegations against him, which were first reported by The New York Times . Centering on harrowing first-person testimony from music executive Drew Dixon, and featuring many of Simmons' other accusers, the doc explores the too-often-neglected impact that coming forward has on victims, and the unique challenges faced by women of color who choose to speak out.

This is an image

A fascinating and harrowing true crime story, Netflix’s Lost Girls chronicles the 2010 disappearance of Shannan Gilbert, a sex worker in upstate New York, and her mother Mari’s relentless search for answers and justice. Faced with apathy from the local police department – who took Shannon’s case less seriously because of her profession – Mari, played by Amy Ryan, sets out to solve the case herself, and in the process uncovers a sinister pattern of unsolved murders in her area.

The Way Back

This is an image

Ben Affleck was widely acclaimed for his performance in this sports drama, where he stars as a former high school basketball legend who chose to walk away from the game, and has regretted it ever since. Decades later, struggling with alcoholism and the weight of his abandoned dreams, he’s given the chance to reckon with his demons and redeem himself by coaching the struggling basketball team at his alma mater.

Blow The Man Down

This is an image

This comic thriller made a splash when it debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and is now finally available on VOD courtesy of Amazon. Reeling from the loss of their mother, sisters Mary Beth and Priscilla (Morgan Saylor and Sophie Lowe) are drawn into the seedy underbelly of their seemingly sleepy Maine fishing village, after a chance encounter with a mysterious and dangerous man ends in violence.

Bad Education

Despite being one of the best reviewed movies at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, Bad Education never had a theatrical release, and was instead snapped up by HBO and went straight to home streaming. The film is both supremely entertaining and an eye-opening examination of a broken school system, telling the true story of a mid-2000s scandal in which New York school superintendent Frank Tassone (Hugh Jackman) embezzled millions of dollars from the school district he worked for. Co-starring Allison Janney as a school administrator who becomes Tassone’s accomplice, this is a smart, gleefully strange chronicle of the largest school embezzlement scandal in US history.

The Half of It

This is an image

Netflix has really stepped up to revive the romantic comedy over recent years, and this tender and sharply written coming-of-age story is one of their very best so far. The classic teen movie premise – an introverted straight-A student, Ellie (Leah Lewis) is hired by a jock who needs help winning over the girl of his dreams – gets a refreshing twist when Ellie ends up falling for the same girl.

This deeply profound documentary brings to light the way transgender people have been portrayed throughout history in media by showcasing over 100 years of footage, as well as personal stories from the transgender community. If you haven't already seen it, you need to add it to your list ASAP.

The Invisible Man

This is an image

Though a quick glance at the title and poster might lead you to assume this is a by-the-book horror movie, look again. The Invisible Man blends sci-fi, thriller, and horror elements to remarkable effect in telling a story about survival and recovery from domestic violence. Elisabeth Moss stars as a woman who is being stalked and tormented by her abusive husband, even after his apparent suicide.

This is an image

The latest film from acclaimed director Kelly Reichardt has been widely hailed as one of the best indies of the year, and with good reason. Set in the 19th century Pacific Northwest, First Cow follows the blooming friendship between two outsiders – one a cook working for abusive fur trappers, the other a Chinese immigrant – who see an opportunity to better their lives when the first cow arrives in their region. Gentle, moving, and insightful, this is the kind of movie we could all use more of right now.

The Assistant

This is an image

A restrained and quietly horrifying portrait of abuse in Hollywood, The Assistant delves into the daily reality behind the #MeToo headlines. Set at a fictional film studio clearly modeled on The Weinstein Company, the film unfolds over the course of a single day in the life of a newly hired young assistant ( Ozark’s Julia Garner), who gradually realizes that she is being co-opted into covering up a pattern of abuse on the part of the studio’s head mogul. It’s a searing exploration of what complicity means, in an industry where low-ranking employees are expected to toe the line at all costs.

Birds of Prey

This is an image

Even if you're not a superhero movie person, even if you've never seen Suicide Squad or any of the related DC movies, and even if you've never heard of Harley Quinn, think twice before overlooking this subversive, outlandish treat of a movie. Margot Robbie gives a full-throttle performance as Harley, who's generally best known as the Joker's love interest/right hand woman, but in this incarnation, she's liberated by her breakup with the iconic villain. Alongside a gang of fellow female vigilantes including Black Canary (Jurnee Smollet-Bell) and Helena Bertinelli (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Harley takes on a crime lord who's targeting a young girl, and the results are outlandish, singular blockbuster fun.

Miss Americana

This is an image

Whether you’re a die-hard Taylor Swift fan, a casual listener, or a skeptic, you’re bound to learn something new about the singer-songwriter – and about the psychological pitfalls of female fame – from watching this revealing and smartly crafted Netflix documentary. “My entire moral code is a need to be thought of as ‘good,’” Swift says, in one of many self-reflective moments, as filmmaker Lana Wilson carefully chronicles her long road both to self-acceptance and self-awareness, and her political awakening in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. Interspersing concert footage with candid interviews and illuminating glimpses of Swift’s isolated life in the spotlight, Miss Americana makes surprising, compelling viewing.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always

This is an image

Eliza Hittman’s indie drama was one of the hottest debuts at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and is now available on VOD. After becoming unexpectedly pregnant, 17-year-old Autumn discovers that she can’t obtain an abortion in her state without parental consent, so travels with her cousin to a Planned Parenthood clinic in upstate New York to have the procedure. An unflinching but empathetic movie that explores reproductive rights through a slice-of-life character story.

This is an image

Alison Brie of GLOW and Community co-wrote and stars in this compelling and haunting exploration of mental illness. The eponymous "horse girl" is Sarah, a socially awkward and lonely woman who is more comfortable around horses than people, and whose life starts coming apart at the seams, as she's tormented by surreal nightmares that seem to bleed into her waking life. Though the film's divisive third act arguably undoes much of its power, it's an unsettling delve into psychosis.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

This is an image

This is technically a cheat, since Portrait of a Lady on Fire had a limited US release in 2019 following its award-winning Cannes debut. But the film only started gathering serious buzz here in the US when it was released wide in February, and shortly after became available on Hulu. A ravishing, emotionally textured love story, the 18th century-set film follows a young painter (Noémie Merlant) who is hired to do the wedding portrait of a reluctant bride-to-be, and ends up falling deeply in love with her.

My favorite 7 new to Amazon Prime Video movies you should watch this month

Amazon Prime Video has a fantastic March for movies

LG C2 OLED TV streaming

I just saw the schedule of new movies on Amazon Prime Video , and my mouth dropped. I'm not going to say that I don't expect Amazon to stream some of the best movies in recent memory — but when I look through the Prime Video app, I often see the best movies being ones you have to pay to watch on demand. 

March's batch is not like that. This month, Prime Video is gaining three of my favorite films of 2022, and I take that list seriously. Of the 55 films released in 2022 I saw, Prime Video is gaining three of the top seven titles. 

One's my favorite action movie of the last year, and the second is a mysterious film about the supernatural. As for the third? I haven't laughed as much or as hard at any movie since. On top of that, Prime Video is adding one of my favorite weird movies of all time, and the boxing movie that made me care about boxing movies.

Each, in its own right, is a contender for the best movies on Prime Video list (even if they don't all make it there). 

Creed (2015)

Arriving on Prime Video alongside its sequel Creed II, and the Rocky movies that came before it, the first Creed felt like a triumphant twist on a classic. Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) is the son of the late boxing legend Apollo Creed, and his life hasn't been easy. Fortunately, he comes across his father's old boxing rival, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), who he convinces to bring him into the sport that made his father an icon.

Unwilling to be defined by his fathers' legacy of dying in the ring, Donnie is trying to write his own future. One of director Ryan Coogler's most electric works, Creed works because Jordan has all the promise in the world — and Stallone delivers one of his best performances ever.

Returned to Prime Video on: March 1, 2023 Genre: Drama Rotten Tomatoes score: 95% Stars: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad, Wood Harris Director: Gregory Jacobs Watch now (opens in new tab)

Lost in Translation (2003)

Bob (Murray), an aging movie star, has turned to product promotion for his new career, and he's back in Tokyo to promote Suntory whisky. Charlotte (Johansson) is also in town, but only to accompany her husband John (Ribisi) — a celebrity photographer. And while Bob and Charlotte both feel lost in the world, finding each they find each other, a needed friendship blossoms. 

A mix of comedy and melancholy, Life in Translation was director Sofia Coppola's second film after The Virgin Suicides (also now on Prime Video), and was an instant critical darling. Murray and Johansson shared the applause from the critics, who said the relative-newcomer kept up with the pro fantastically. Some, though, argue that the Japanese people are relentlessly othered, and exist as caricatures to serve a greater purpose.

I remember seeing Lost in Translation back when I was in college, and it struck a chord with me, as nobody feels more adrift than your average 20-something. I'm looking forward to revisiting Lost in Translation on Prime Video, though I'm already prepared for Coppola's version of Tokyo's locals to not have aged well at all.

Returned to Netflix on: March 1, 2023 Genre: Comedic drama Rotten Tomatoes score: 95% Stars: Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Giovanni Ribisi, Anna Farris Director: Sofia Coppola Watch now (opens in new tab)

Being John Malkovich (1999)

One of the oddest films I can remember — one I saw when I was too young to truly understand it, at that — Being John Malkovich is exactly what its title suggests. Craig (Cusack) is a failed puppeteer who falls down one of life's rabbit holes and into an office job that exists on a floor between the 7th and 8th floors. 

There, he finds a hole into the mind of famed actor John Malkovich. Craig's wife Lotte (Diaz) also wanders down the same hallway, and it awakens something intense inside of her. I can't really say more without spoiling it, but director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman made a truly singular project, and one I can't wait to revisit.

Praised for the excellent performances from its ensemble cast, its surprise-filled script and sheer inventiveness, Being John Malkovich is a movie you should watch if you think you love weird movies.

Returned to Netflix on: March 1, 2023 Genre: Comedic drama Rotten Tomatoes score: 94% Stars: John Malkovich, John Cusack, Catherine Keener, Cameron Diaz Director: Spike Jonze Watch now (opens in new tab)

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1999)

Again, a classic I am excited to revisit. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was the movie that let some know that Guy Ritchie's follow-up movie Snatch would be one to definitely watch for. 

A case of too many criminals with not enough brain cells between them, 'Lock, Stock' gets tricky for those involved thanks to a game of poker that created a huge debt. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it right now to see a young Jason Statham as 'Bacon,' in his very first role.

A delightful crime movie filled with action and argument, 'Lock, Stock' may require you to look up some British slang online, but it's a hoot nontheless.

Returned to Netflix on: March 1, 2023 Genre: Comedic action Rotten Tomatoes score: 75% Stars: Nick Moran, Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Jason Statham, Steven Mackintosh, Vinnie Jones Director: Guy Ritchie Watch now (opens in new tab)

Jackass Forever (2022)

So, here's the thing. Some people will see the word "Jackass," and keep scrolling past this entry. That's fine, and it's also their loss. Jackass Forever earned a special place in my twisted heart when I saw it in theaters because I pretty much didn't stop laughing from the big reveal in the chaotic opening scene.

Vulgar to a point where some will question my taste, Jackass Forever is filled with some of the most memorable stunts I've ever seen. A few favorite parts of the film include the increasing amounts of pain inflicted upon "Danger" Ehren, the lights-out scene and the marching band incident.

Genre: Stunt comedy Rotten Tomatoes score: 85% Stars: Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, "Danger" Ehren McGhehey, Rachel Wolfson, Zach Holmes Director: Jeff Tremaine Coming to Amazon Prime Video: Tomorrow (March 10)

Nope (2022)

For some people, "Nope" is the best word for how they handle horror films. Actor/director Jordan Peele has possibly changed that for some, with his trio of films (Get Out, Us and Nope), which is a part of the "elevated horror" movement. This time, we follow Otis Jr. (Daniel Kaluuya) and Emerald (Keke Palmer), or as they call each other, "OJ" and "Em," siblings who inherited Hollywood Haywood Horses from their late father.

And while keeping the family business afloat isn't going that well, they have bigger things to worry about. Things above their head. Nope features a great slow-burn start that brings the action from a simmer to a boil, and will have you white-knuckling your couch by the end. Speaking of which...

Genre: Horror Rotten Tomatoes score: 83% Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Brandon Perea, Barbie Ferreira Arriving on Prime Video starting: March 21

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Yes, anyone who signed up to Paramount Plus in December for Top Gun: Maverick could have waited a few more months to get it with their Prime membership. Since 'Maverick'  was a box office smash hit, I probably don't need to do a whole lot to explain the plot, but here's the quick rundown. The new class of TOPGUN fighter pilot graduates is being prepped for an impossible mission, and they need guidance and training from Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell (Tom Cruise) to get ready.

The extra twist in the story is that one cadet is Bradley 'Rooster' Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of Mitchell's late wingman Nick 'Goose' Bradshaw.

Phenomenal stunt-work, which delivered some of the best action scenes of 2022 (sorry James Cameron, Avatar: The Way of Water is a 'meh'), combined with a storyline that actually makes you feel things (sorry, original Top Gun: you're just a soundtrack), Top Gun: Maverick was my biggest surprise of 2022.

Genre: Action Rotten Tomatoes score: 96% Stars: Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Ed Harris Director: Joseph Kosinski Coming to Amazon Prime Video on: March 24th, 2023

IGN's People's Choice Best Movie of the Year: Tenet

hollywood movies top rated 2020

After a career spent exploring the concept of time, director Christopher Nolan finally tackles the subject head-on in Tenet; a film not just interested in timelines, but directly focused on them. It’s a classic Nolan film in almost every way - packed tight with lofty ideas, impeccable set-pieces, and pacy plotting - to the point that it’s practically a comfort watch rather than exciting new ground. But in a world where blockbuster cinema is dominated by franchises and sequels, the film serves as an accomplished demonstration of the pleasures of unconnected and non-serialized original storytelling. And in the year 2020, when cinema is struggling through arguably its most difficult time in its entire history, Tenet works as a fantastic reminder of what blockbuster filmmaking can aspire to be, and why it’s best experienced in a huge, dark room.

hollywood movies top rated 2020

It certainly wasn’t a typical year for, well, anything, including movies. As Hollywood packed up shop and pushed a lot of their projects to 2021 or streaming services, questions arose about how to critically assess such an unusual time for cinema. Some groups like the Academy pushed their awards back to make a longer window for inclusion while some writers lamented the lack of quality overall. They just weren’t looking hard enough. In the end, it was a very solid year for the form, and the lack of blockbusters only allowed for more room to assess the movies that might have otherwise gone under the radar. Let’s just say that it was not hard to come up with 20 films that we feel represented the quality of 2020. And great movies didn’t even make the cut. Every single one of the 20 films below will stand the test of time, remaining important works of art even after the din of this horrible year is behind us. Art endures.

About the rankings: We asked our regular film critics and editors to submit top ten lists, ranked or unranked, and then consolidated them with a points system resulting in the list below, with a new entry for each awarded film. To read each critic's Top 10 individual list, click here.

Runners-up: “ Bacurau ,” “ Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets ,” “ I’m Thinking of Ending Things ,” “ On the Rocks ,” “ Sound of Metal ,” “ Time ,” “ The Vast of Night ,” “ Vitalina Varela ,” “ The Wolf House ,” and “ Wolfwalkers ”

10. “ The Assistant ”

Kitty Green ’s remarkable “The Assistant” is about #MeToo and Harvey Weinstein without explicitly being about those things. Instead, this quiet, day-in-the-life drama breaks down the many ways employees are forced to tolerate bad behavior. In the film, Jane ( Julia Garner ) is a hardworking everywoman who treks into the office each morning from Queens when it’s still dark out. But today, something is off. She finds an earring in her boss’ office. A woman she’s never seen before stops by to pick it up. A young woman from Idaho flies in for a job likes hers and the company puts her up at a fancy hotel. When her boss disappears, all her coworkers seem to know where he’s gone. When Jane finally works up the courage to report him to a HR representative (a chilling Matthew Macfadyen), he waves off her concerns and warns that her report could end her career. As Jane tearfully gets up to leave, he tells her not to worry: “You’re not his type.”

“The Assistant'' psychologically explores all the little ways someone trying to do the right thing meets resistance. Her boss yells at her and humiliates her to write him an apology for every so-called mistake, pummeling her will into self-preservation. Others in the office know what’s happening, but more or less lead by example to look the other way. Jane’s supposed to be relieved that she’s not on the receiving end of sexual harassment, but what about the other women? Or the next executive she works for? Green’s movie, which she also wrote and directed, works not just within the setting of a production company but to almost any toxic workplace that encourages its employees to ignore abuse and give them no tools to stop it.

9. “The Nest”

There are scenes in Sean Durkin ’s marital drama “The Nest” that are so raw and real, so specific and vivid, you may feel the need to watch them through splayed fingers. As writer and director, he creates the sensation that you’ve wandered into an intimate space where you don’t belong, watching as a husband and wife tear each other apart with deep-seated resentments and hyperverbal jabs. It’s uncomfortable—but you can’t look away, because the dialogue is so riveting and the performances from Jude Law and Carrie Coon are so exquisite.

Nine years after his debut film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” (my pick for the best film of 2011), Durkin once again explores themes of seeking and striving, of reinventing yourself into an idealized persona with dangerous consequences. The cult that Law’s Rory O’Hara has joined is capitalism, but given that it’s the conspicuous consumption era of Reagan and Thatcher, his yearnings are inevitable. Durkin never spells out that notion, though. Rather, it’s part of the rich atmosphere he creates, as Rory, Coon’s Allison and their two kids relocate from upstate New York to England in pursuit of elusive riches. Rory already lives like he’s made it big, but he’s hustling and schmoozing, relying on his looks and charm to get him in the door at prestigious investment firms, and it’s clear that the tightrope he’s walking will snap beneath his feet at any moment. While he insists on moving his family into a sprawling manor they can’t afford, a building sense of claustrophobia is inescapable.

Within this slow burn, Law and Coon give career-best performances. This is the role Law has been working toward his whole life, playing on both his golden-boy beauty and sinister charisma. And Coon is just a knockout as Law’s fed-up wife. She has a chameleon-like quality as an actress, but no matter the role, she exudes a bracing directness. She always gives you an authentic truth. And when she finally snaps, she’s ferocious.

“The Nest” evokes its 1980s setting in inspired ways, from unexpected wardrobe and production design choices to a varied soundtrack of hits ranging from The Cure to Bronski Beat to Al Jarreau. But while the period details are specific, the story of desire and deceit is timeless. ( Christy Lemire )

8. “Never Rarely Sometimes Always”

The title is the list of possible answers to a series of sensitive questions a social worker asks a pregnant teenager seeking an abortion. Real-life social worker Kelly Chapman, who assisted writer/director Eliza Hittman with her research for the film, gently asks Autumn (newcomer Sidney Flanigan ) about abuse and consent, in case a safety plan is necessary following the procedure. As she tries to select the right option to answer each question, we see a dozen memories and emotions flicker across her face. It is one of the year's most unforgettable scenes. We never find out who is responsible for Autumn's pregnancy or what the circumstances were, but her answer to questions about whether she consented to sexual contact is not "always."

Autumn and her cousin Skylar ( Talia Ryder ) take a bus from Pennsylvania to New York because that is the only way Autumn can get an abortion without her mother and stepfather finding out. In an interview , Hittman told me she wanted to "reclaim the narrative" on reproductive rights with a woman's perspective. She tells the story with great tenderness, more protective of the two girls than the other characters are. Hittman's intimate, documentary tone illuminates the girls' vulnerability, their determination, and their resilience. ( Nell Minow )

7. “Beanpole”

Kantemir Balagov ’s period piece about two Russian women pushing through the debris of World War II and their related trauma was about as depressing as storytelling got in 2020. Its first major tragedy alone, involving the death of a child, may be too much for some to bear. And it’s only the beginning of a story that feels like it’s constantly folding in on itself, using the arc of two best friends to capture how an entire country heals from the wounds of war, all while it feels like they're sinking into quicksand. It is a masterful film that works on multiple levels—a deeply empathetic character study anchored by two breathtaking performances and also a study in Russian history made with some of the most impressive craft of the year.

The stunningly naturalistic Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina —both newcomers who should have long careers—play Iya and Masha, two very different survivors. Iya has deep trauma—both physical and mental—that leads to events in which she appears to simply freeze up, lost in horrible memory. Masha’s wounds are revealed through the story, but this former Russian soldier will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. Taking place largely at a hospital at which the two women work, “Beanpole” is about two women trying to rebuild something from the wreckage of Leningrad and their lives. It's further proof that cinema is a uniting force, finding the relatable emotion and humanity across culture and time. It’s unforgettable. ( Brian Tallerico )

6. “Minari”

There aren't a million different stories to be told. Most stories, even personal ones, contain familiar elements or come from similar sources. But there are different lenses through which to view the familiar, lenses which expand and transform our "shared" collective memory and/or experience. For example, the story of NASA, told in countless films and documentaries, was incomplete until the "hidden figures" of African-American mathematicians and engineers were revealed. And so the lens got wider. The story didn't lessen in relevance, but expands because more people are included in it. Lee Isaac Chung ’s "Minari," loosely based on his own childhood in Arkansas, is this kind of film.

“Minari” is a familiar immigrant story, and a familiar American story, filled with the dream of owning land, working the land, being your own boss. Jacob ( Steven Yeun ) and Monica (Yeri Han), Korean immigrants, make the bold choice to leave their jobs as chicken sexers in California, to move to Arkansas with their two small children, chasing Jacob's dream to start a small farm. Jacob revels in the dirt, the sweat, the vision of crops to come. Monica hates all of it, and the  children look on, scared, as their parents' marriage disintegrates. Monica's mother, staying with them, adds tension in the small home. Grandma is a live wire, and Yuh-Jung Youn's superb performance is key to "Minari"'s impact (as well as the reason behind its title).

"Minari" captures the rhythms of farm life, while also devoting its attention to into the specifics of the family dynamic, Jacob and Monica's fractured marriage, Grandma's relationship with 6-year-old David, and the family's relationship to the rural town where they now live. Chung sets things up meticulously so the payoffs, when they come, are not just truthful, but carry huge weight and emotion. This is old-fashioned filmmaking, in the very best and truest sense of the word.

In speaking of Marilyn Monroe , photographer Henri Cartier Bresson observed, "She’s American and it’s very clear that she is—she’s very good that way—one has to be very local to be universal." This is what Chung accomplishes. “Minari” depicts a very specific experience, a very "local" experience, and by doing so has created a film shimmering with universal truths about childhood, family, mortality, belonging, dreams, and hope.

5. “Da 5 Bloods”

In its soul, Spike Lee 's "Da 5 Bloods" is about four Black American soldiers returning to Vietnam to reclaim the bones and wisdom of the man who guided them through war. Stormin’ Norman, played with holy majesty in flashbacks by the late Chadwick Boseman , is the dominating voice of such wisdom in Lee’s gorgeously in-your-face history lesson about how America was never great. And it could never be great, if it treats people as it does and has. During his powerful monologues, Norman reminds his fellow Bloods  about how America was built on the sacrifice of Black bodies, like that of Crispus Attucks, the first man killed in the American Revolutionary War. And when the five Bloods learn about Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, Norman is the one to steer them away from retaliation. “We control our rage,” he assures them. “They can’t use our rage against us.”

The past is present in the world of “Da 5 Bloods,” Lee's Vietnam War movie that honors the PTSD the war has inflicted on the natives, and the soldiers who toured through. It’s a lively, multifaceted, and heavily emotional adventure, starting with four reunited veteran friends boogeying inside a club named “Apocalypse Now” (which even uses the logo from Francis Ford Coppola ’s Vietnam War epic). Our complicated heroes (played by Delroy Lindo , Clarke Peters , Norm Lewis , and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) experience the country through the pain of the Vietnamese people, and “Da 5 Bloods” distinctly removes jingoism from its dialogue on American history. Parallel to the movie's compassion for how the American War never truly ended in Vietnam is also the context that America used Black lives for war while not supporting them at home; the Bloods were part of a generation sent to die for a country that then killed the leaders of their freedom.   (The script was co-written by Lee and Kevin Willmott, who rewrote a script by Paul DeMeo and Danny Bilson to focus on Black soldiers.)

Along with Norman's remains, these veterans are also searching for the gold they buried back during the war, which Norman always said should go toward Black liberation. Everyone wants their share, but some Americans want to be, as Paul puts it, “the motherf**ker.” Paul "believed in Norman like a religion," according to his fellow Bloods, but has become angry at the world and estranged from his son David ( Jonathan Majors ), who joins the four Bloods on their treasure hunt. Paul embodies a type of MAGA madness, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap throughout the movie as a provocative statement and as a distraction from his sense of powerlessness. The story's twisting events send a sweat-drenched Paul deeper into the jungle and into the reasons behind his anger, expressed by Lindo in fourth wall-breaking, close-up monologues of frightening anguish and harrowing loneliness.  

"Da 5 Bloods" will always have a special significance being released in the summer when Black Lives Matter received its biggest nationwide coverage yet, inspired in part by the murder of George Floyd and others at the dirty hands of oppressive discriminatory policing. The coda of Lee’s film features the many faces of a Black Lives Matter group, and shows the power in their numbers; some speculated the footage was added to be timely, but Lee confirmed it was  the first scene they shot , as if it was his own entry into "Da 5 Bloods." Lee never forgets history, but he still has an invigorating, inspiring belief in what America could be.  ( Nick Allen )

4. “First Cow”

“First Cow” opens in the world of today, and a discovery both unsettling and of some archeological/sociological interest. The narrative is then borne back into the past, and eventually it dawns upon the viewer that the discovery is also a giant spoiler, and wishes it weren’t.

This kind of narrative sleight-of-hand is not customary for Kelly Reichardt , who directed “First Cow” from a script she wrote with Jonathan Raymond , adapting his novel The Half Life . But it serves well her vision of America as a land of both discovery and dread. In 1820’s Oregon, the end of the line for many frontiersmen, a Jewish cook and a Chinese man—exquisitely enacted by John Magaro and Orion Lee —renegotiate their respective statuses as outcasts by teaming up and going into a kind of business together, concocting fried dough treats that tickle the taste buds of hungry trappers. The accidental entrepreneurs optimistically aspire to move south, to San Francisco, and open a storefront business. In the meantime, they find sustenance in each other’s company, and in refining their recipes. The one hitch is their source of milk, which doesn’t belong to them.

“First Cow” is leisurely paced, letting you get to know and often to laugh with its central characters. If the opening minutes of the movie remind us that, as the blues song says, death don’t have no mercy, the end reminds us that history doesn’t either. But what’s in between shows us what trust, friendship, quick-wittedness, love and a little stolen milk can do to provide comfort amidst the harshness. ( Glenn Kenny )

3. “ David Byrne ’s American Utopia”

"American Utopia" shows what happens when two pop culture giants at the tops of their respective games finally collaborate, bringing a lifetime of experience to bear, and treating their shared love of live performance as a common language. The star, composer, and originator of "American Utopia" is David Byrne, who now holds the distinction of appearing in two of the greatest concert films ever made, the other being Jonathan Demme's 1984 "Stop Making Sense." The director is Spike Lee, whose output as a fiction filmmaker has been so formally innovative and politically engaged that people tend to forget that he's every bit as assured when adapting stage productions (including "Freak," "A Huey P. Newton Story," "Passing Strange," and "Rodney King").

Generously mixing new songs, beloved back-catalog titles, and covers, Byrne and Lee's movie is a celebration of community and personal connection, mirroring the structure of "Stop Making Sense" (which likewise starts with Byrne performing solo, then adds instrumentalists and backup singers until the stage is filled) while establishing its own, very-Spike-Lee aesthetic. Its themes and generous spirit inadvertently made it the perfect antidote to, or virtual escape from, the intense feelings of isolation that gripped people all over the world throughout the first year of the COVID pandemic.

But the sheer beauty of the music, choreography, and images give "American Utopia" a resonance that will outlast the historical moment that framed it. Shooting with multiple cameras (and working closely with cinematographer Ellen Kuras and the show’s original choreographer, Annie-B Parson ), Lee makes sure that a simple, powerful, stand-alone-gorgeous image appears after every new cut, whether it's close-up of a guitar being strummed; an overhead shot of performers moving in formation or playing possum on the stage floor; or a closeup of Byrne's wondering face. This is the purest sort of filmmaking and the purest kind of art. ( Matt Zoller Seitz )

2. “Nomadland”

Chloe Zhao’s “Nomadland” unfolds as a deliberately paced series of observations. As the camera drinks in the gorgeous, sometimes ostentatious views of the outdoors, Zhao allows us to nonchalantly visit the characters who inhabit this small corner of the universe. We sit with them, hear their dreams and concerns, feel their joys and frustrations, and learn how they deal with the day to day drudgeries of their on-the-road lifestyle. These are presented matter-of-factly, without any prettying up or overly dramatic rendering of events. Our central character is Fern ( Frances McDormand ), a widow whose husband and hometown of Empire, Nevada were both taken away from her within six months. Empire literally disappeared after the gypsum plant closed and the residents left for greener pastures.

For Fern, those pastures involve living outside In her van, driving from place to place while doing seasonal work to make ends meet. She interacts with the temporary communities of fellow employees that sprout up when places like Amazon are hiring. The people Fern meets are played by several non-actors, folks who are really living the life “Nomadland” explores. They bring a beautiful, lived-in and at times mythic quality to the film. Their discussions about hoping to live long enough to fulfill their individual destinies leave a haunting residue long after the credits roll. These people stay with you, like friends who have moved on yet linger in our memories. Zhao wisely refuses to pass judgment or even explain her characters’ motivations, instead forcing us to process them through our own personal filters.

At the center of this superb movie is McDormand, giving one of the best performances of her career. She sinks into the role, practically becoming as new a discovery as the non-actors to whom she charitably cedes the spotlight. Even her moments with David Strathairn , the only other familiar face in the cast, have a quiet, rugged, lived-in quality that is miles removed from their celebrity status. We expect them to make us feel for their characters; the bigger surprise is how attached we become to everyone else.

“Nomadland” engenders the empathy our beloved founder, Roger Ebert , believed movies can produce in a viewer. It is filled with people, stories and performances that solicit and demand our understanding, opening our hearts as the best “empathy machines” do. ( Odie Henderson )

1. “Small Axe: Lovers Rock”

It’s hard to believe that British filmmaker Steve McQueen gave us not one, not two, not three … but five new movies this year through his dazzling “Small Axe” anthology. Somehow designed to go straight to streaming (even in a hypothetical non-COVID world) despite their obvious fit to massive cinema screens, this decades-spanning, London-based quintet of films all tell rousing stories about the city’s West Indian community. The best one did so with its euphoric optimism.

On the surface, “Lovers Rock” is simply about a circa-1980 house party, a nostalgic notion in today’s pandemic-dictated realities where we all dearly miss the kind of fleeting yet memorable human connections intimate soirées used to forge. But the accidental timeliness of McQueen’s wistful setting—with its coziness and liberating sway dizzyingly captured by cinematographer Shabier Kirchner —isn’t the only thing that charges “Lovers Rock.” There is also undeniable purpose in McQueen’s understatedly political work that celebrates a culture with specificity. As eager, dressed-up, tipsy strangers who briefly check their troubles and the era’s racial injustices at the door dance to and sing along the romantic reggae tunes a DJ spins, McQueen unearths a sense of belonging, a dose of harmonious freedom through their unity.

Brilliantly costumed to reflect the transition from the flamboyant '70s to bold '80s and with the year’s most memorable scene in any movie—accompanied by Janet Kay’s intoxicating single “Silly Games”—“Lovers Rock” approaches something whole and sexy, even spiritual, with every one of its sensual steps. ( Tomris Laffly )

Jennifer Lawrence in "No Hard Feelings"

Jennifer Lawrence in “No Hard Feelings”

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence gets down as a desperate woman looking to sell her body for a new car in the latest comedy from “Good Boys” director Gene Stupnitsky.

Lawrence stars as Maddie, an Uber driver whose car gets impounded and resorts to high-class sex work by answering a Craigslist ad posted by wealthy parents, played by Matthew Broderick and Laura Benanti, looking to help their 19-year-old son (Andrew Feldman) lose his virginity.

On the brink of losing her childhood home, Maddie (Lawrence) discovers an intriguing job listing: wealthy helicopter parents looking for someone to “date” their introverted 19-year-old son, Percy (Feldman), before he leaves for college. To her surprise, Maddie soon discovers the awkward Percy is no sure thing.

Lawrence promises to “date his brains out” in the interview but soon learns that Percy is “unfuckable” due to his dorkiness. The “American Hustle” actress also serves as a producer on the film, directed and co-written by Stupnitsky. John Phillips also co-wrote the screenplay.

Lawrence and filmmaker Stupnitsky have been longtime friends, with Stupnitsky actually introducing Lawrence to her husband Cooke Maroney.

Lawrence’s “ No Hard Feelings ” co-star Ebon Moss-Bachrach teased that the “Causeway” actress is “really goofy” in the R-rated comedy.

“I think Jennifer Lawrence is really goofy in this movie, in a way that she hasn’t been in the past,” the “Bear” and “Girls” actor told Awards Radar . “The movie reminds me of some 90’s comedies I really used to like. I don’t want to misrepresent the movie, but there were elements which reminded me of the Farrelly brothers, or ‘Something About Mary.’ There’s a decent amount of physical comedy, and Jennifer Lawrence is very commited to it. It was a very funny set.”

Up next, Lawrence is set to star as talent agent Sue Mengers in Paolo Sorrentino biopic “Sue.” Mengers represented stars such as Candice Bergen, Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Ali MacGraw, Steve McQueen, Ryan O’Neal, and Barbra Streisand. “There is almost, and I say this with love and admiration, a sociopathic tendency that I think sometimes I’m jealous of,” Lawrence told Vogue of Mengers. “I kind of covet the heartlessness that I have no doubt she had to have.”

“No Hard Feelings” premieres June 23 in theaters.
