Best Films of 2020

I am not ready to adopt the insane Mike D'Angelo 100-point rating scale. But this year I am trying something new. I am creating a best-to-worst ranking of every 2020 release that I see.

So I suppose you could subdivide my {8]s and [6]s peter et cetera into decimals and generate 100 points if you are so inclined, but you know, people are dying and whatnot.
