There has obviously been a dearth of films in cinema this year.

Some say Cinema may never recover.

But what have you found this year? Any overlooked gems from past years that you found this year? Have you gained greater appreciation for what decent films we had in some of the recent years?

Personally, my DVD players hasn't been very active, and I've binged on some TV shows which I missed or avoided when they were originallly broadcast.


What about you? Did you find new favorites?

Warner Bros. decided every movie they're putting out next year will be on HBO Max from day one. They believe that movie theaters are dead and are happy to be the company that puts the final nail in that coffin.

Huge payoff for them if it works, but they're hemorrhaging money right now and if their plan or 2021 in general doesn't work out the way they think it will they're going to be in a lot of trouble.

Are people going to want to sign up for yet another streaming service?




Have you seen Under the Silver Lake yet? The Hunt? Both were really good.

I also liked an independent flick called Space Cop, made by the guys from RedLetterMedia on YouTube, but I have a hard time recommending that movie to people unless they already watch and enjoy RLM content.

What have you done today to earn your place in this crowded world? :)

I have seen those, except probably 4 that I don't want to. Some I've seen several times. None I want to see again soon.

Have you seen Nobody? That is quite good.

For rewatching, I'd go with Rogue One, Wind River, Edge of Tomorrow, Arrival, King Arthur, Galaxy Quest.
