Film critics Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton review the disaster that was 2020 in a hilarious viral video

Famed Australian film critics Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton have reviewed the year 2020 in a hilarious viral video.

The former hosts of The Movie Show on SBS and ABC’s At The Movies treated the entire year like a real film, with David being the harsher critic of the two.

Introducing 2020 as ‘the hotly-anticipated sequel to 2019’, David described the plot as being about ‘an ageing despot’, played by Donald Trump.

‘An aging despot with deteriorating mental health refuses to engage with a global pandemic and overboiling racial tensions, while people are forced to stay home to watch a documentary on big cat game parks,’ he said.

The 81-year-old then called it a ‘disappointing failure’ that was unable to stick to one specific genre.

‘It’s difficult to work out what 2020 actually is,’ he said.

‘A sci-fi, a disaster epic? A political drama? Some sort of dark comedy? It’s hard to tell.’

He later added: ‘Christopher Nolan’s Tenet was easier to follow, and that’s saying something.’

After slamming 2020 some more, contrarian Margaret finally chimed in to gush about how much she enjoyed it.

‘I loved it David!’ she gushed. ‘It was a satire, it’s not meant to be taken seriously.’

She added: ‘I mean, didn’t you love that scene where the US president suggests everyone drink bleach?’

Margaret ended up giving 2020 a generous five stars, while David gave it zero.
