2020 was a really really really wild year where so much wild stuff happened we sometimes stopped and asked ourselves “Did that really happen this year?” and the mockumentary styled movie that is Death To 2020 gives us a look back at some of the most iconic and crazy events that happened in the cursed year.
The special features a series of fictional characters discussing US and UK events of 2020 including the COVID-19 Pandemic and the US presidential election, I watched the Netflix special and now I will give you my unprofessional professional review of it and just like with all my reviews I will tell you 1. Why you should watch it and 2. What you will love and hate.
1. Why You Should Watch It
Death to 2020 is really funny, this special is really what most of us needed after the disaster that is 2020. The special does a great job of making fun of some of the events that took place during the year and is like a funnier look back at everything that happened in the UK and the US from different perspectives and it’s really awesome to watch if you’re going to watch it for the sole purpose of having a great time.

The special also stars some pretty great Hollywood faces from Sam Jackson to Joe Keery AKA Steve from Stranger Things, the actors give pretty good performances to giving us pretty authentic reaction to what happened throughout the cursed year
2. What you will love and hate
The movie has a lot of funny moments and it is not because of the greatly written script but because of the amazing performance of all the actors and actresses, with mockumentaries I always believe that how funny a joke is depends on how it is acted out by the actors and in this movie every joke is just funny because of the amazing acting. The funny moments make the retelling of 2020 less depressing and more funny and “I can’t we made it outy.
It’s not the biggest cast on Earth but it’s 100% the funniest cast, with Samuel L. Jackson, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Leslie Jones, Kumail Najiani, Tracey Ullman, Cristin Milioti, Diane Morgan, Samson Kayo, Lauerence Fishburne(only as the narrator) and Charlie Brooker the cast is filled with some of Hollywood’s “They are just funny with any role” actors and it just makes the film a really awesome watch. Oh and Cristin Milioti play does some amazing acting as a “Karen” it’s really amazing.
What will you hate?
Well honestly you will just hate 2020. This movie is really fun to watch and just not take seriously, you cannot pick out anything to hate if you’re just watching because you were looking for something fun to watch.
With all of that said, Is this movie worth the popcorn? Yes it is, it is a really funny little special that you should not really take seriously while watching instead you should just grab your bucket and watch it for fun.
