2020: As Good As It Gets?

Jake Kotze's Jack/Leo/Year of the Rat mash-up Instagram:-)
Born [4/2]2/37?-)
Jack as Jack in 'The Shining'
I had to laugh ... although not too loud ... at Jake Kotze's Instagram post of an obsessive handwashing, soap hoarding, germ-a-phobic, and other a-phobics Jack Nicholson in the movie 'As Good As It Gets', as well as Leo's similar role in the movie 'The Aviator', and then their coming together in the movie 'The Departed' for the RAT references, which all seem to sum up 2020: The Year of the Rat, so far this year:-)
George CARlin and Car Quotes?
Jake Kotze was posting the Instagram to honour Jack's birthday and to sum up the mood of the year 2020 with a few past movies of Jack's.
But Leo's past movies, such as 'The Aviator' and 'Titanic' also seem to sum up the 2020 travel industry dilemma, not to mention the way the virus was initially spread.
Fiction Prediction, "Flight Shame" and 'A Gift of Wings'?
1974 Chinese Zodiac – The Year of the Tiger
Leo oddly enough was born in the Year of the Tiger, and of course we all know by now how big a pop cultural hit Netflix's 'Tiger King' is in 2020.
Eyes of the Tiger?
My Heart Will Go On?
We ain't even halfway through 2020 and it's already been a Titanic year for world history.
Let's hope this ain't as good as it gets though, right?
That's Life in 2020?
