The votes are in. The Long List been reduced to just 11… and here they are, the Phil’s Quick Capsule Review & Guests list of the FILMS TO WATCH for 2020. In no particular order:
#1: Palm Springs
(Yes we KNOW this was in last years also. Small technical issue on release dates). When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.
#2: West Side Story
An adaptation of the 1957 musical, West Side Story explores forbidden love and the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds.
#3: Mitchells vs The Machines
A quirky, dysfunctional family’s road trip is upended when they find themselves in the middle of the robot apocalypse and suddenly become humanity’s unlikeliest last hope.
A young boy and his working-class Belfast family experience the tumultuous late 1960s.
Passionate about ocean life, a filmmaker sets out to document the harm that humans do to marine species – and uncovers alarming global corruption.
A docile family man slowly reveals his true character after his house gets burgled by two petty thieves, which, coincidentally, leads him going to a bloody war with a Russian crime boss.
