2021 Oscars Honest Trailer

Ben Pearson’s Top 10 Films of 2020

Top 10 films of 2020

A common refrain over the past few months has been that 2020, in addition to being a rough year for everyone overall, was also a rough year for movies. But while the pandemic’s impact on the entertainment industry cannot be overstated (and may not truly be known for several more years), and several big-budget movies were bumped further down the release calendar, I’m not ready to relegate the films of 2020 to the same scrap heap that the rest of the year deserved. There were plenty of great films that made their way to audiences – you just had to do a bit more digging to find some of them.

Looking back at a year we’d all rather forget, I’ll happily remember these films as buoys which helped keep me afloat during some scary, discouraging times. These are my ten favorite movies of 2020. Read More »

Delroy Lindo gives one of the year’s best performances in Da 5 Bloods, so it’s only fitting that Netflix has decided to push for a Best Actor Oscar nomination. The streaming service could’ve hedged their bets and tried to campaign Lindo for Best Supporting Actor, but will instead save that for the rest of the film’s cast: Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., and the late Chadwick Boseman.
