Movies You Watched This Year – 2020

The Natural
On the way to a tryout with the Chicago Cubs, young baseball phenom Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) is shot by the unstable Harriet Bird (Barbara Hershey). After 16 years, Hobbs returns to pro baseball as a rookie for the last-place New York Knights. Despite early arguments with his manager, Pop Fisher (Wilford Brimley), Hobbs becomes one of the best players in the league, and the Knights start winning. But this upsets the Judge (Robert Prosky), their owner, who wants Hobbs to lose games, not win.

This is the second time I watched the movie. Had first watched it on @fearlesssoul recco in his post TOP 20 MOVIES OF ALL TIME – SPORTS. Liked it a lot again. Its a good sports movie involving baseball. Will try to write a more detailed review soon.

Robert Redford was excellent as the pitcher as well as the hitter. Glenn Close looked pretty and was good. Kim Basinger was good too in a negative role.

Highly Recommended

    Marriage Story
    Marriage Story is like an modern updated version of Kramer vs Kramer. Those who have watched Kramer vs Kramer may not be able to enjoy Marriage Story as it feels very derivative. Marriage Story is still a good watch because of the lead actor’s performances though.

    Scarlett Johansson is excellent as Nicole and she will definitely be nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress and has a very good chance of winning too. Adam Driver is excellent as Charlie and will definitely be nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor. Joaquin Phoenix will and should win though. Azhy Robertson is very good as Henry, Nicole and Charlie’s son. Laura Dern is excellent as Nora Fanshaw, Nicole’s lawyer. She will also definitely be nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and has a very good chance of winning too.

    Here is my detailed review.
