    I almost feel like Hamilton is kind of in a league of its own just because it's Hamilton. But even though it's first and foremost a Broadway show that was filmed in 2016, for all intents and purposes it's still a 2020 film. It just feels odd to include it, but King of Staten Island was great as well. Awesome work from Pete Davidson and it's Judd Apatow's best film since Knocked Up.

    I'm seeing if I can rustle up a top 10, might need to be a top 5 otherwise I'd just be throwing movies in to make up the numbers.

    1. Extraction
    2. Bad Boys For Life
    3. Call of the Wild
    4. The Invisible Man
    5. The Christmas Chronicles 2
    6. Underwater
    7. Mulan

    That's all I've got for now, I could fill out the 10 with stuff like Tenet, The Fatman, Bloodshot and The Wolf of Snow Hollow, but I'd just be making up the numbers as I didn't really like those films. I'll see where WW84 and Soul land over the next week or so.

    Another Round. By far. This is easily one of the best films of the year. It’s available on amazon prime streaming. Brilliant absolutely brilliant. From the same duo of Mads Mikkelsen and the director of the Hunt.

    It has probably one if not the best endings for a film this year. Beautiful journey about mid-life and experimenting with alcohol. Please watch this movie!

    2. The Vast of Night
    3. Mank
    4. The Devil All The Time
    5. Da Five Bloods
    6. The Invisible Man

    8. Tenet
    9. Onward
    10. erm... WW84?

    Since I haven't seen a lot of new movies this year, movies like WW84 and Borat 2 or Onward would not be in my top ten. Yet here we are. I'd like to watch Sound of Metal at some point.
