So by now hopefully you already listened to our special episodes on the Top 10 Narrative Films of 2020 (featuring Josh Bell and Jason Harris from Awesome Movie Year) and the Top 5 Documentaries of 2020 (featuring Jason Harris). Next up is another special episode featuring Josh Bell where we’ll be looking at our Top 10 First Time Watches of 2020 (older movies we watched for the first time). But first up, as I always do, my full ranking of all the new release movies I watched in 2020.

It was of course a weird year (which honestly, is an understatement… it was the weirdest year since any of us has been alive). But it was actually a pretty awesome movie year. While many major movies were delayed to 2021 (and beyond), there were a ton of great movies. Admittedly, there were very few amazing, instant classics (I only gave one 5 star rating this year), but I at least liked to a degree the top 92 movies on this 111 movie list. And I really liked the top 70 or so! That’s better than most years where the quality starts dropping around the 30s…

As always, each movie on this list that we’ve done an episode on is linked to its episode, so if there’s one you missed, make sure to click it and check it out, and don’t forget to check out our Top 10 Films and Top 5 Documentaries special episodes as well. One last thing, as always, this list is subject to change constantly (I think I may have even rearranged some things since recording our list episodes), so take the whole thing with a grain of salt… And as always, thanks for the support, thanks for listening, and I look forward to another awesome movie year.
