365 Movies for 2020

by The-Byzantine-Knight | created - 2 months ago | updated - 21 hours ago | Public

I have seen many other movie fans do their type of list where they watch 365 movies, 1 for each day of the year, and give their opinion on each film they saw.

I wanted to do the same thing here where I watch 365 movies, 1 for each day of the year, whether they be a Theatrical release, Direct to Video, Foreign release (with English Subtitles) and or Television release, and give a short review accompanying each film entry.

A lot of these films will be established favorites and first time viewings.

I have organized my viewing experience by a theme for every month

January: Animated Disney February: Live Action Disney March: DC Comics April: Easter (& related) May: George Lucas & Steven Spielberg June: Anything Goes July: Anything Goes August: Marvel Comics September: Anything Goes October: Halloween (& related) November: Anything Goes December: Christmas

All opinions are my own. I prefer to watch movies to be happy and enjoy them, rather than watch to be angry and critical of them.

Also, I know that 2020 is a leap year, so February 29 will be skipped over. Sorry.

To summarize this film's greatness and endurance for the past 25 years I'll leave behind this quote:

"Technologically we've gone way past "Toy Story" in CG animation, and are improving on it every year. But if you look at "Toy Story" today, you're still sucked into that world, you still care about those characters, it's still a great movie."

  • Brad Bird, director of "The Incredibles"
