  1. I watched The Midnight Sky on Christmas Day. It was... not good. END CHRISTMAS.
  2. CITIZENS OF BOT. THIS EXPERIENCE IS HERE TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE. ANYTHING YOU WANT, ANYTHING YOU DREAM OF THIS MOVIE HAS IT.
  3. Before revealing the final two movies, I just wanna leave a few words about movie theaters. Theatrical distribution as we know it, it is dead. It is over. It is no longer the main way to release or watch a movie. COVID accelerated the change from theatrical OD to streaming OD from 10 years to 10 months. I have accepted it. I have been enjoying movies from the past few months perfectly knowing theaters aren't sustainable anymore and are on the verge of closing. The truth is theaters helped me in a lot of dark times in my life. Times where I wanted to disappeared completely, movie theaters were there. The weekend and the new releases would get me throught the week and throught all the bad thoughts. The experience of watching a movie on the big screen will never be replaced for me. Yeah, people talking loud, cellphones, kids, people eating popcorn with their mouths wide opened. It sucked, and none of that happens at home. Yet, I would still go see a movie in theaters over at home any day. Looking at this top 10, I am sure I would still love these movies equally if I watched them at home for the first time, but all of them were great experiences at their own way sharing the experience with other people. The next two movies are, for me, the peak of a theatrical experience in 2020. I cried, I laughed, I was at the edge of my seat and I was loving every single minute of them. Would I love them at home as well? Of course, but these two will go down as the last two big spetacles I watched in theaters, and both will hold a special place in my heart because of that. Goodbye movie theaters. You were there for me when I needed you, and I will be there for you on your dying breath.
  4. ´The world is mostly closed and the movie will be available online in a few days. It was easy to see coming since they announced their plans.
  5. 17.000 tickets sold here on OW with over half the country on lockdown in the weekend and popcorn being forbidden in movie theaters. The first one sold 44.000 tickets on OW. I was expecting far worse and now I am hoping that it shows some legs even with the movie dropping online this Friday. Unfortunately the situation with the lockdowns won't get better, especially in the New Years Weekend where 100% of the country will be on lockdown. Theaters will be closed from December 31 until January 3.
  6. I get two next year. If only Universal could launch Peacock here for me to see Fast 9 on launch day legally...
  7. The movie is gonna be online in every torrent site in 5 days. Can't say I am surprised by these numbers. People know they will be able to see it for free. Just like Mulan, I expect it to be one of the most illegally downloaded titles of the last 4 years.
  8. 10TH PLACE I couldn't decide what to leave out of the top 10, so I went with 2 movies for the 10th position. The other is...
  9. DREAD IT. RUN FROM IT. CJOHN's THRILLING TOP 10 REVEAL STILL ARRIVES HERE WE ARE BOYS. The final year of theatrical releases worldwide. The final year before the streaming Gods take over our souls, and I have EATEN like a LORD. I have watched 78 movies in theaters this year (1 or 2 more are in the cards but no more top 10 contenders), 59 of them after March. To be counted as a potential movie to be in the most prestige top 10 in HISTORY of Hollywood, you would have needed a theatrical release in Portugal from January 1 to December 31 of 2020. A ton of movies tried, but only 10 will be able to gloat to the others about being in CJOHN's TOP 10. I can't wait to see the DVD covers with the sticker. Movie theaters helped me get throught this insane year where so much happened that changed our lifes together. But I am still here, surviving the actual apocalypse, with all of you silly BOT members that I love (special shoutout to @MrPink which reads my crazy ramblings daily and tries his best to not go insane and provide much needed emotional support in these hard times). This is the end of BOT as we know it, but we will still be connected by the crazy times we spent here discussing passionately if our fetish director/actor newest movie would make big bucks or shaming each other for our deep mistakes (the BvS review looms over my head every day). But it is time to stop the nonsense. It is time to start the countdown until the best movie of 2020 is revealed (which will obviously be THE LAW and not open to any discussion). And that part, well... as one certain character would say... The top 10 will be revealed over the next few days. So, without further ado, SHALL WE BEGIN? Also here it is a gif from future Best Picture winner Sonic, because it had to be done. Shit I bet all these links will be broken af when I click "Submit Topic". EDIT: Only two broken. Could have been worse.
