Here’s what Movie Club members told us they watched in 2020:

The Invisible Man. The new version is a good old-fashioned horror movie with plenty of jumps and twists! Universal has made this and other current films available online!” —Denise in Phoenix

The Bookshop. This was a sweet story set in a coastal English town, a small town drama with a controversy around opening a bookstore in a specific town building. A calm escape with an intimate connection built through letters about the love of books.” —Joy in Tempe

“I think one of the most important films that everyone should be watching right now is Contagion. This should serve as an eye-opener for the folks who are still not practicing safe social distancing, and it might scare some into compliance!” —Jason in Phoenix

“Early movies when life seemed gentler: Room with a View, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Apartment. Also listening to KJZZ all day, but only watching movies after 11:00 p.m. because I gotta hear my jazz. Stay safe.” —Deborah in Phoenix

Enchanted April is a super feel-good escapist movie of disenchanted Londoners escaping to a wisteria-covered castle in Italy and discovering themselves—and love! In A Man for All Seasons, Thomas More pays the price for a principled stand. The Bodyguard is a romantic thriller with great soundtrack. Tin Cup has a terrific soundtrack and stars Kevin Costner and Rene Russo. And Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day with Francis McDormand and Amy Adams is a witty, upbeat romance with a jazzy fun soundtrack; it’s sure to put a smile on one’s face!” —Catherine in Scottsdale

Groundhog Day is a wonderful feel-good movie. Being at home every day feels a bit like the same day repeating. The trajectory of Bill Murray’s motives from the beginning to the end of the movie are an invitation to keep refining my home routine so that it becomes more productive and altruistic. Enjoy!” —Susan in Peoria

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) is excellent escapist entertainment. A surrealist absurd comedy about a group of upper-middle-class friends who try, repeatedly, to have dinner with no success. Very dry humor, very French sensibilities, very much in its own world, which would make a good break from what is going on. Kiss Me Deadly (1955) is a dark film noir that takes a standard private-eye plot and turns it a little bit off. Think if Dorothy Parker had written the dialogue for a Philip Marlowe novel. From the opening credits that are run in reverse to the strange, unexpected finale, be prepared to either think ‘what the hell?’ or be totally shocked.” —James in Phoenix

“Movies with happy endings! The Way, Way Back, Jo Jo Rabbit, and Silver Linings Playbook.” —Rita in Scottsdale

“I personally think 2001: A Space Odyssey illustrates how we return to where we came from (the Divine Realm, Heaven, however you see it) with the astronaut aging in the end and then the image of the fetus in the womb. This illustrates how there is so much that we do not understand about life in general and about the worlds beyond us that we cannot see. I really enjoy Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks as well! This movie, which portrays a true story, shows how we can work together in times of crisis for the good of humanity.” —Jeanne in Peoria
