It seems more fun and a better chance to get unique picks from everyone.

Going with 5 to make the list short, concise and that much harder lol.

Do you mean the things we list should be from 2020, or is it about our favorite movies/shows etc. that we saw during the year?

@Jessica favorites that got you through 2020 regardless of year.

No, it's good this way - it doesn't have to be movies we rewatched, we can choose movies/shows we saw for the first time. 

That's what I had in mind anyway.

Thought this could be pretty interesting to see what people say, might not be the best poll, but interesting none the less.

Could you change 'Silence' to Scorsese movies generally? I'd say I've been approaching them this time in an almost academic way and as a body of work. If not, I understand and 'Silence' is fine, especially because I've been focusing more on his less iconic movies, which I've seen less often over time.

And yes, I think it will be very interesting, as well, and I do think it will be a good poll, too.

Add a more general statement that encompasses Scorsese's filmography after Silence. I like to have a link for every option if possible, so that is why I originally just had Silence.

I want to still keep it title based in some regard. Was there a certain movie you rented you would like to include?

6.8K Messages

That's a good question, because there were maybe 150 movies, I rented over the whole year. Ok, I try to keep up, will look on the history.

Mission Impossible ! Can't see which movies I rented at Amazon. But I got Netflix, too.

So I would say 'The Irishman'. No! Now I got it. 1 Stream was a lucky catch:

Klaus

I can not remember a rented stream that delighted me such like Klaus. It was produced in 2019, but I postponed it to 2020. And at the end it was a really delightful movie. One of the best animated last years.

Ruby wrote "(and the rest of Scorsese's filmography)" eoq.

After 'Klaus' I would set (and 149 other streams)

Do you have anything more concrete as a grouping? 149 other streams is very vague.

6.8K Messages

No, I look all genres, but only one movie over a whole year looks laughable. At the end, if my last input doesn't fit to your idea, Klaus alone would be ok. :)

My pics:

  1. 1917 (2019)
  2. Hamilton (2020)
  3. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
  4. Raise the Red Lantern (1991)
  5. Jean de Florette (1986) and Manon of the Spring (1986) (Though 2 movies, it is 1 story and best to watch together)

'Raise the Red Lantern' is one of my favorite ten films, probably, of all time, and 'Jean de Florette' is exquisite. I also agree that watching 'Jean' and 'Manon' together is a great way to watch them. 'Good list, indeed.

The miniseries. I t was absolutely great, faithful with the tone of the graphic novel and with a tight script. My only dissapointment is that there wasn't a single line to let us know what happened to Nite Owl.

The movie was completely forgetable, I saw it in its original release.

I'm going to stick to 2020 releases for the heck of it, but I'll branch out a little for format.

1. i'm thinking of ending things

2. Devs

3. The Platform

4. Electric Swan

5. Never Rarely Sometimes Always

Might want to update this as I see more stuff, but it's a solid mood board for 2020.

Sorry, I should have clarified, I want to shift 2-4 down to 3-5, putting Devs at #3 and removing Never Rarely Sometimes Always, with Wolf House as the new #2.
