Downrivers Top 30 of the Year


With another calendar year coming to a close, I was able to watch 132 new releases- so it's time to see what made the top 30 list and where to stream them in Canada. It's important to note as one person, I wasn't able to see all major releases so Avatar, Black Panther, The Menu, Aftersun, and Bones and All will be missed from the top 30 purely because they were not viewed yet.
