Flick ReView: Death To 2020

01/06/2021 02:24:01 AM

For most of us, 2020 has been way beyond a typical bad year. Not only we experienced our own share of personal mishaps, but the world underwent a series of sudden, drastic changes. The coronavirus has paralyzed almost everything and re-introduced lockdown to civilizations across the globe. 

Not only that, we have mourned over legendary personalities – both old and young – such as Kobe Bryant, Sean Connery, Pat Patterson, and Kenny Rogers, to name a few. There was also notable disaster such as wildfires, volcano eruptions, flashfloods brought by tropical cyclones, and even earthquakes; as well as a political clash that might've triggered another world war. To sum it up, the events that happened in 2020 were like a collection of teasers to what could have been an apocalyptic-like era. 

All that said, as Yuletide season passed upon us, we have high hopes that 2021 would be different from this nightmare. That said, Netflix created a comedy event that brought together some of the most noticeable news items and iconic actors to mirror 2020 to its core.
