Thursday Movie Picks: 2020 Releases

Hey, guys!
Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
There were so many movies I looked forward to in 2020, more them half of them still haven’t dropped. Nevertheless, there were so pretty good films that did manage to come out. So let’s talk about some of those!

#1 Birds of Prey

You have no idea how excited I was to see this film. And it certainly didn’t dissapoint. It’s bright, loud, colorful, has an amazing soundtrack, kickass leading ladies and is just all around hell of a good time!

#2 Enola Holmes

I never cease to be surprised by how talented Millie Bobby Brown is. After seeing her in Stranger Things, I had a feeling that she’s destined for greatness. With Enola Holmes she once more demonstrates her abilities. She stars together with big names like Helena Bonham Carter or Henry Cavill but she easily plays them all against a wall!

#3 Hamilton

So, a while ago I watched a comedy special from Kat Ryan where she talks a bit about when she went to see Hamilton. After that I checked out the soundtrack and had it on heavy rotation ever since then. I was delighted when the movie (filmed live performances) finally dropped on Disney+ and I got to see the story to the songs.

  1. In what will be a common refrain this week I haven’t seen any of these. I have at least heard of all three. Enola Holmes is the one that I’m most likely to seek out.

    Between things not coming out because of the pandemic, the lockdown and my preference to seek out older films I’ve only watched just enough from last year to have three picks. That at least made it easy assembling a list!

    Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears-Fabulously wealthy and endlessly chic 20’s Aussie detective and adventuress Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) globetrots to unravel an ancient curse involving priceless emeralds aided by stalwart and smitten Detective Inspector Jack Robinson (Nathan Page). Big screen continuation of the highly entertaining Phryne Fisher Mysteries TV series from Australia.

    Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind-Through interviews with family (including her two daughters) and friends the life and tragic mysterious death of megastar Natalie Wood is examined.

    The Invisible Man-Cecilia (Elizabeth Moss) attempts to escape from the virtual imprisonment of her marriage to an ultra-wealthy, brilliant and psychotic husband Adrian (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). While trying to rebuild her life she discovers he has devised a way to mask himself to the point of invisibility as he terrorizes her. Okay thriller sustains its suspense until an ending that betrays both of its main characters.

  2. Nice picks! I loved Birds of Prey and would’ve seen it a second time if not for the pandemic/lockdowns. Hamilton was one of the favorite things of 2020. Enola Holmes was really charming too. It was fun to see Millie outside of Stranger Things.

  3. I LOVE Birds of Prey and Enola Holmes, they’re in my top 10 and Honorable Mentions respectively. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t seen Hamilton, I really should do that soon as I quite like musicals.

  4. I really want to see Enola Holmes and will for sure. I am not sure about Hamilton because the songs and the story don’t seem that interesting to me but I should give it a chance. Birds of Prey may be good to see one night when nothing else is on. I haven’t seen anything this past year.
