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

The invisible Man. The new version is a good old school horror movie with lots of twists and turns! Universal has made this and other current films available online! —Denise in Phoenix

The book store. It was a sweet story set in an English coastal town, a small-town drama with controversy surrounding the opening of a bookshop in a specific building in town. A quiet escape with an intimate connection built through letters about the love of books. —Joy in Tempe

“I think one of the most important movies that everyone should watch right now is Contagion. This should be an eye opener for people who still aren’t practicing safe social distancing, and it might scare some into complying! —Jason in Phoenix

“The first films where life seemed sweeter: Room with a view, breakfast at Tiffany’s, the apartment. I also listen to KJZZ all day, but only watch movies after 11:00 p.m. because I have to hear my jazz. Be careful.” —Deborah in Phoenix

Enchanted April is a super feel-good escape film about disenchanted Londoners escaping to a wisteria-covered castle in Italy and finding themselves – and love! In A man for all seasons, Thomas More pays the price for a position of principle. The bodyguard is a romantic thriller with an excellent soundtrack. metal mug has a terrific soundtrack and features Kevin Costner and Rene Russo. And Miss Pettigrew only lives one day with Francis McDormand and Amy Adams is a witty, upbeat romance with a fun, jazzy soundtrack; it’s sure to put a smile on her face!” —Catherine in Scottsdale

groundhog day is a wonderful feel-good movie. Being home every day is a bit like the same day repeating itself. The trajectory of Bill Murray’s motivations from the beginning to the end of the film is an invitation to continue to refine my domestic 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 surreal absurdist comedy about a group of upper-middle-class friends who repeatedly attempt to have dinner without success. A very dry humor, very French sensitivities, very much in his world, which would make a good break from what is happening. kiss me deadly (1955) is a dark film noir that takes a standard private plot and twists it a bit. Think if Dorothy Parker had written the dialogue for a Philip Marlowe novel. From the opening credits that run backwards to the weird and unexpected finale, be prepared to think “what the hell?” or be totally shocked. —James in Phoenix

“Movies with happy endings! The way, the 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, as you see) with the aging astronaut at the end, then the image of the fetus in the womb. It illustrates how there is so much we don’t understand about life in general and the worlds beyond us that we can’t see. I really appreciate bridge of spies with Tom Hanks too! This film, which depicts a true story, shows how we can work together in times of crisis for the good of humanity. —Jeanne in Peoria
