RANKED: My Top 40 Favorite Films of 2020

So, here we are! My annual year-ender post! All things considered, 2020 still gave us a handful of amazing films — so much so that I decided to extend my list from top 20 to top 40. Because 2020 is 20 + 20 = 40. HA. HA. HA.

Note: Despite the Oscars extending their qualifying run to February 28, I will no longer wait for films that are in contention for the upcoming major awards (e.g. Malcolm & Marie, Judah and the Black Messiah, The Father, etc.) This list is entirely based on 2020 releases.

Feel free to share your favorite 2020 movies too!
