The Best Movies of 2020: Though I can’t vouch for any of these movies, as I haven’t seen any of them. Hopefully there is something worth watching in this list. Please bear in mind the author’s warning. “As always, viewers should use discretion in terms of content. Though I chose only movies that are in some way edifying or redemptive—depicting goodness, truth, or beauty in ways Christian viewers can celebrate—several films on my list are rated R or TV-MA and should be viewed with caution and discernment.”
