What non-blockbuster are you most excited about seeing in 2020?

We've got some recommendations, in case you're looking for some...

2020 is going to be a pretty fantastic year for the big budget movies. If you're wondering which ones we're talking about, we actually attempted to guess which ten would be the biggest of 2020's summer right here (and the top ten ended up being a top thirteen).


On top of that, we actually went through our 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2020 right here, but again, that list had A LOT of big tentpole releases on there: Tenet, No Time To Die, Fast & Furious 9, etc.

So, instead, we wanted to focus a little bit on the smaller movies that have got us very excited. Now, chances are come the end of 2020, our top ten of the year will all be small movies we've never heard of - we didn't know much about the likes of Booksmart, Knives Out, or Hustlers at the start of 2019 - so chances are the best non-blockbusters are still a complete unknown to us right now.

But with that in mind, The Big Reviewski gang still try their best to answer the question, kicking off at 04:10 in the video here:

As it was Rory's question, he answered it first, and he went with Benedetta. Never heard of it? Don't worry, most people probably haven't, but you have heard of the movie's director: Paul Verhoeven. He is the guy behind classics such as Robocop (the original, good one), Total Recall (the original, good one), Starship Troopers, Basic Instinct, and... of course... Showgirls. If you'd like to know why Rory went for Benedetta, we fully recommend you listen to the description of the movie above. Irish Release Date: TBC.

Next up, Eoghan went with Tom Hanks returning to World War II in Greyhound. After the much-loved Saving Private Ryan, this time he'll be looking to save an entire convoy of Allied ships as they are being hunted by a group of Nazi U-boats. Irish Release Date: Friday 8 May.

And finally, Paul went with Parasite, the recent winner of Best Foreign Language Movie at the Golden Globes, and likely to repeat the win at the Oscars. From the director of Snowpiercer, The Host, Memories Of Murder, and Okja, it is one of those movies that you're better not knowing much about before you go in. It was released in the States late last year, and was pretty much given the best reviews of any movie over there for 2019. Irish Release Date: Friday 7 February.
