2020 Discoveries - RANKED

RANKED - anything over 5 years old that I saw for the first time in 2020 that I rated as 4 stars and up (plus some of my fave 3 stars that were on the edge). I'll be adding anything I see up to the 31st.

This year sucked in every way that a year could suck, even worse than 2018 for me. I guess it's all been going downhill since 2016. At least I watched good movies. Some of these were randomly watched with family or friends, some were for research for zines or appearances on the Movie Melt Podcast, others (like Christine) were inexcusable gaps that just needed to be filled. Of course a lot of them were just for enjoyment. I got by with help from byNWR.com and other sites where I was able to discover a lot of great movies, plus recommendations from fellow Letterboxders!
