Top Ten Films of...


Recommended Posts

Are there any of the high-profile ones that you didn't like? Any from my Top 9 list?

I have seen Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and Dolemite Is My Name.   I didn't dislike either of them but they didn't set me on fire.  I liked Eddie Murphy's performance in Dolemite and DiCaprio's in Once Upon a Time more than the movies.  I wasn't too sure what the point was of Tarantino's film and I am not a fan of alternate comic book history.  It may be entertaining to some but I find it a tad irresponsible.  It made me wonder how the families of the victims would feel about it.  I know that is a deep subject.  You could poke holes in just about every Warner Bros. "historical" biopic from the 30's and 40's.  But for the same reason I wan't a fan of Inglorious Basterds.

2020 was a rough year, to put it mildly, and new movies were a major casualty of the upheavals. I managed to see only a few with a 2020 release date, and most of those were unremarkable or worse. However, I do have a couple of lists from critic Steve Prokopy. While I usually disagree with his rankings, and even dislike a few of those he chooses, his lists still manage to include enough interesting titles to warrant a look, and from a wider variety of genres and countries than many of the leading critics. Here are his choices for 2020, in separate lists for narrative and documentaries.

Narrative

  1. Nomadland
  2. Never Rarely Sometimes Always
  3. First Cow
  4. Small Axe
  5. The Assistant
  6. One Night In Miami
  7. Promising Young Woman
  8. Sound of Metal
  9. Da 5 Bloods
  10. The Nest
  11. Minari
  12. Beanpole
  13. I'm Thinking of Ending Things
  14. The Climb
  15. Soul
  16. Possessor
  17. Another Round
  18. The Invisible Man
  19. She Dies Tomorrow
  20. The Dark and the Wicked
  21. On the Rocks
  22. Martin Eden
  23. Mank
  24. Swallow
  25. Emma.
  26. The Vast of Night
  27. Palm Springs
  28. Bad Education
  29. The Trial of the Chicago 7
  30. Bacurau

Documentary

  1. Collective
  2. David Byrne's American Utopia
  3. City Hall
  4. Boys State
  5. On the Record
  6. The Dissident
  7. Dick Johnson Is Dead
  8. Time
  9. Crip Camp
  10. Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets
  11. Zappa
  12. The Painter and the Thief
  13. The Way I See It
  14. Beastie Boys Story
  15. MLK/FBI
  16. The Truffle Hunters
  17. Assassins
  18. I Am Greta
  19. Creem: America's Only Rock'n'Roll Magazine
  20. Vinyl Nation

Please feel free to mention other 2020 films of note that you may have seen.

Personally, I've only seen 20 titles from 2020, and I rated none of them above a 7/10.

  1. Borat Subsequent Moviefilm  (7/10)
  2. Host
  3. Lost Girls
  4. Have a Good Trip (documentary)
  5. Horse Girl
  6. Scare Me  (6/10)
  7. Underwater
  8. #Alive
  9. Vampires vs. the Bronx
  10. Extraction
  11. Dracula  (5/10)
  12. You Should Have Left
  13. Evil Eye  (4/10)
  14. Hubie Halloween
  15. Fantasy Island  (3/10)
  16. The Clearing
  17. The Babysitter: Killer Queen
  18. Coffee & Kareem
  19. Penance Lane
  20. Toys of Terror  (2/10)

I've also seen both Bad Education (I liked it) and The Vast of Night (not so much), but I have them listed as 2019 films.
