    For this Disney/Pixar adventure, you'll definitely want a lot of snacks because it's going to be a long, and bumpy, ride into a world of mystical creatures. In this animated trek, elf brothers Ian and Barley (voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) have quite the journey ahead, and although the film was never able to see the light of day in theaters due to COVID, we're sure that if it had, it would have dominated the box office.

    Now streaming on: Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, & VUDU

    Onward

    Animated / 2020

    Hey dudes and dudettes, we're not trying to give you any bogus recommendations, so when we tell you this movie is excellent, we totally mean it! It's the perfect movie to just chill and enjoy with a bucket of popcorn and whatever other goodies you can find. If you enjoyed the first two films in the franchise, we're positive you'll want to check out this adventure too so you can find out what the song is that will save mankind.

    Bill & Ted Face the Music

    Comedy / 2020

    The ruler of the future tells best friends Bill and Ted they must compose a new song to save life as we know it. But instead of writing it, they decide to travel through time to steal it from their older selves. Meanwhile, their young daughters devise their own musical scheme to help their fathers bring harmony to the universe.

  • Bad Boys for Life

    After being bad boys in two other movies, this is the baddest Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have ever been, and we mean that in the best definition of the word. Their chemistry is so undeniable it looks like they just picked up where they left off, even if that was almost two decades ago. In our opinion, this was one of the best films from 2020. It's one to watch again and again, not because you missed anything, but because it's always an enjoyable experience -- made even better with some popcorn, butter and salt.

    Now streaming on: STARZ, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Sling TV, VUDU, & Philo

    Bad Boys for Life

    Action / 2020

    The wife and son of a Mexican drug lord embark on a vengeful quest to kill all those involved in his trial and imprisonment -- including Miami Detective Mike Lowrey. When Mike gets wounded, he teams up with partner Marcus Burnett and AMMO -- a special tactical squad -- to bring the culprits to justice. But the old-school, wisecracking cops must soon learn to get along with their new elite counterparts if they are to take down the vicious cartel that threatens their lives.
