2020’s Movie Watch List with Juicy Stats and The 2020 Marsy Movie Awards

Here is the BIG ONE!  The year end stats, then the awards show follows!   What is the best movie I have seen all year?  The question no one has been asking will be answered below! 

A Couple of things to note before we dive in:

  • My rating’s system adjusted during the year.  So there are more 5s in the first half but I’m not going to adjust scores based on memory.  
  • I decided to add movies I didn’t finish at the end of January.  So It looks like there is a rough patch to start, but that is just me adding them at the end of the month because I couldn’t remember which day I tried to watch them.

OK, Let’s see how much time I wasted enjoyed watching movies in 2020!

The List

  • An asterisk (*) indicates a first time viewing.
  • Strike-through means I didn’t enjoy it enough to finish it.

Baseball time!
These are the “batting stats” compiled for the FIRST TIME watches.  I give each movie a rating out of 5.  4.5 and up are home runs, 4s to 2.5s are hits, 2 and lower are field outs, an 0.5 (did not finish) is a Strike Out.  This tells me how well of a job I’m doing at picking which movies to watch.

  1. This is ridiculous! Lol But man totally amazing the amount you watched. On second thought we are in lockdown so WTF are we supposed to do! lol. 4/5 for Live Without A Net. Thats cool. They need to reissue it but that will probably not happen.

  2. The juiciest stats to date, Kevin – well done!
    After the Good Place, I’m quite keen to one day see Cannonball Run II. And JoJo Rabbit has now moved to the top of my must-see list, looks great!

    1. Jojo Rabbit is wonderful! It is way more of a satire than a comedy. Get ready for some heavy moments.

      I just started and finished The Good Place over the Christmas break. It took me a while to warm up but I ended up loving it once I did. Cannonball Run II is definitely the most ideal movie for The Middle Place.

  3. That is awesome…totally awesome!! I’m quite impressed. And yes, 500 is doable…you can do it!! Screw it, go for 1,000. Who needs exercise and legs that work. The downside is you might have to buy a new couch/recliner as I am sure you would wear it out!!

  4. I’m with Deke, this is bonkers! Man, 445 movies in a year! That’d take me a decade to achieve… I give proper shoutout for your Ip Man vote, though, I love that one. And you didn’t like The Predator? Or is that some different film from the classic 80s Arnie shoot-’em-up extravaganza hilarity-fest?

    1. “The Predator” came out in 2018. It is garbage. “Predator” from 1987 is brilliance on celluloid.

      I love Ip Man! I still need to watch the 4th one. The 3rd was a little disappointing so it is taking me a while to get there.

      1. Ah OK, I wonder, because that Arnie flick is gold, I agree! And I need to see part 4 as well, but I love the Ip Man stuff. I have a whole pile of awesome kung fu movies here. Among my faves.

      1. Aww thanks so much Kevin. I thought it would help with your ranking of that movie (or a different perspective haha). Oh it was John’s idea to give it a -1? Guess it must be that awful is John hates it!

  5. “Holy moley!” (How’s that for a great opening). Impressive in your detail and your attention. Loys of common ground a few differences of tastes but the bottom line is we are both lovers of Motion Pictures (and music), Keep them coming Mars. Love swapping watches and yakking about ones we have both seen.
