Lucas McKee’s Top 5 films of 2020

Paramount Pictures and Sega of America

1. Sonic the Hedgehog
This was one of the best video game movies that’s been made. I was introduced to Jim Carrey, who played Eggman, and he is hilarious.

2. We Can Be Heroes
The movie was ridiculously funny. There is a surprise at the end that will make you want to rewatch the movie.

3. The Christmas Chronicles 2
There is a new character introduced since the last film: a naughty elf named Belsnickel who broke the Elves’ Code. You’ll have to watch closely at the beginning for surprises that turn up throughout the movie.

4. Dolittle
I was surprised to see Robert Downey Jr., who I’ve only seen as Iron Man, starring as Dr. Dolittle. Dab-Dab the Duck entertains you with her actions throughout the movie.

5. Onward
I loved seeing this movie’s version of a magical world. This movie hits you at the end because the main character sacrifices his opportunity to meet with his dad’s spirit so his older brother can visit with him instead.
