In 2020 there were a few events that came through for those of us in lockdown. Some movies, unfortunately, were dead on arrival.
2020 was evidently a rough year for the movie industry. At the same time, it was great for streaming services like Netflix, Disney, and HBO Max. Hosting early releases and original content that won viewers over became the trend. Some of the industries star-studded were also dead on arrival.
The Invisible Man (remake) earned around $124 million worldwide. The movie launched in early 2020, pre-pandemic quickly becoming a fan-favorite on streaming pay-per-view platforms. The film integrates the idea of ‘digital-spying’ into the storyline’s reality, compared to the far-fetched reality of invisibility by biology altering experience to its predecessor, ‘Hollow-Man.’
Wonder Woman 1984 was one of the most anticipated feature films of the year. For many DC Comic fans, the release was dead on arrival. The HBO Max streaming film failed to meet the expectations in deep-diving into Diana’s belief in feminism. With the subtle creation of the 1943 character Cheetah, the film built its circumference around the doings of the 1987 villain, Max Lord.
Spell, amongst others, is a must-watch for horror fans. The movie is a 2020 American supernatural horror/thriller film directed by Mark Tonderai, is starring Omari Hardwick and Loretta Devine. The film utilizes the talents of a predominantly black cast to tell the experience of a captive man stranded in Appalachian Kentucky by use of untold magic.
