🔢 Every movie I saw in 2020, ranked: The final list
By Eric Johnson • Issue #107 • View online
Hey everyone — hope you all are taking some time off and watching lots of movies this holiday season. I’m banking a lot of reviews for the first official newsletter of the year, next week, but one more time for posterity: Here is my final ranking of the movies I watched in 2020, including the ones I haven’t reviewed yet.
(As you might be able to tell, I’ve been making some serious progress with my MCU rewatch.)
I’ve split this into two lists: One for the new movies that came out this year, like I used to do, and one for everything (including the 2020 movies).
TL;DR: Please watch Soul. It’s on Disney+.
As always, links below are to the newsletters where the review originally ran. Bolded titles are among the ones that will be in next week’s edition.
