2019 was such a good year for movies. This makes it all the more disappointing that 2020 has been almost completely barren. The more interesting result has been the slew of movies released on streaming services or for direct purchase on demand.
Against all odds, 2020 has forced The Academy to, what I assume to be begrudgingly, remove their theatrical release requirement for the first time in history. For possibly the first time in history, releasing direct-to-video is being viewed as an alternative rather than necessarily a downgrade for the studio releasing it.
