The answer is none.
Question: which new wide release movie is recommended to watch in the theaters this week?
Week #1 of 2020 1/3/2020 only has one movie and despite it being one of my favorite genres: horror, it cannot be recommended.
The Grudge (2020)⭐️⭐️
I’m not even recommending you see it when available on streaming. Just save yourself the pain and see something else. Is it really that bad? Unless you like watching a bunch of jumpscares, yeah, it’s that bad.
Hey, if you want to see an awesome horror movie and haven’t yet seen yet (available to stream on Amazon Prime Video as of 1/3/2020) ….
A Quiet Place ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
I just saw that and loved it! A Quiet Place 2 is coming in March 2020.
In fact, since doing this every week, this is the first week I have no new wide release movie theater recommendations.
Alas, we can’t leave you hanging, friendly readers. I’m going to recommend — again — last week’s recommendation:
Little Women ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Directed by Greta Gerwig, only her second effort since Lady Bird ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (also recommended, available on Amazon Prime as of 1/3/2020).
Want to see what else we recommend NOW PLAYING at the theater?
Here are other movies we’ve seen at the theater recently that are recommended. Any movie rated at least 3-stars is recommended. You should read any 3-star review (click the title), because sometimes they are qualified, meaning we were entertained, but maybe only recommend to certain moviegoer interests.
4-star movies are highly recommended to everyone and films rated 4.5 or 5 stars are must see.
- Ford v Ferrari ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ScreenX
- Little Women ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Knives Out ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Joker ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
- Richard Jewell ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
- Uncut Gems ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
- Dark Waters ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
- Last Christmas ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
- Frozen II ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Bombshell ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Happy movie watching to you!
