Rodent's 1950-Present Sci-Fi and Futuristic-Fantasy Movies

I've spent the past couple days going over what was actually released in 2020... and well, there's literally nothing notable.

Sure, ok, the pandemic smashed a lot of releases and pushed many to 2021 but there's simply not enough actually released in 2020... we had, like, erm... Underwater, Tenet, Sputnik, The Invisible Man... nothing really of any quality to even warrant a shortlist to be totally honest.

And to show how bad 2020 actually was... The New Mutants, the 13th movie of the X-Men franchise was released, and I didn't even know until 15 minutes ago that it had even been filmed let alone actually released.

I guess if I was pushed to give an answer to 2020... probably Bill & Ted Face The Music simply due to there being nothing else to pick from.


For the first time... after 70 years worth of movies in this list, a list that I've been running for what, 6 or 7 years now, and 2020 gave us nothing.
Bad year.

Instead of adding a sub-par movie, were there any new TV shows that might be worth mentioning?

Apart from the odd rerun of IT Crowd and Father Ted or if the Snooker is on, I never watch TV tbh, GBG

Oh. I watch a lot of TV, but only what's on cable TV. I've missed a lot of recent shows because I don't pay for streaming services like Netflix, Prime, etc. I was hoping maybe there was something new worth buying on DVD.



Getting a shortlist together for this year's top Rodent Pick
Like 2020, it's been a little light on the ground for all movies. Let's hope 2022 works out better.

So far I got...

Free Guy
Godzilla Vs Kong
Justice League: The Snyder Cut. Yes, I'm counting this as it is a totally different movie to the studio bilge that was churned out in 2017.

Anyone wanna throw any gems out for me to consider for 2021?



The trick is not minding
Obviously Dune.

Though I haven’t seen them yet, there’s Voyagers and Chaos Walking that came out earlier this year. And of course, The Tomorrow War.
Hm. I’m going to have to check my list (yes, I keep a list of movies that come out yearly that I track so I can watch them, have been since 2006).

I’ll get back to you shortly.
