Worst films of 2020

It goes without saying worst  thing about 2020 was the whole year. This year was awful for any number of reasons, none of which I'll go into. Instead I'll talk about the really bad films I saw this year.

TAPESTRY- a heartfelt movie about how god and family will make it all right in the end. Its so clunky that  you'll become a aethist and kill your family.

GUNS AKIMBO-Disappointing action film with Daniel Radcliff makes zero sense

CODE OF THE FREAKS- people with disabilities  dismiss every single film about disabilities. What should have been a reasoned discussion is an irrational rant.

OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES- the rare food documentary I hate.

CLOVER- a not very good comedic thriller makes Ron Pearlman look bad

OPEKA- portrait of Father Pedro Opeka is hagiographic in the extreme. A border line offensive film where you'll want to punch out this white savior (see MADIGASIKARA instead for a real look at Madagascar)

HUNTED- incredibly stupid  film about a woman hunted by two men, who then turns the tables on them. As stupid as a film can be 

ORIGIN OF THE SPIECES- a great discussion about artificial intelligence is wrecked by a headache inducing presentation

BLACK JACK- a movie about a legendary basketball player without almost no basketball, and is instead an awful cliché  family drama.

FRENCH EXIT-a bad film about a spoiled rich woman who doesn't know what to do with her life. Who cares?

CIRCLE- technically inept film is so deficient that it is impossible to know if the story is any good. You spend the whole film picking it apart, wondering why the sound as recorded in camera, whether any of the actors were in the same place at the same time and how anyone would pick it up to show at a festival.
