The 2020 Film Release Calendar: March

This has been perhaps the strangest Release Calendar I’ve ever done. Because the Oscars were held a few weeks earlier than they usually are, I wasn’t able to fit in the majority of the calendar before them. Usually I get the whole thing done by late January. And now, we’re post-Oscars, and I’m only on March. And the only reason January and February got done is because I wanted to get them up before some of the films actually came out.

But, here we are, working our way through the rest of the calendar for all the films to look forward to. I think you all know how this works — I’m gonna preview everything that’s set to come out (and a lot more that isn’t), and then guess what I think I’m gonna rate them all when I do manage to see them. And then we’ll use this as evidence of my ineptitude come the December wrap-up articles. These are my own twenty-seven 8×10 colored glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one.

Anyway, here’s Wonderwall March: (more…)


Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #200 – “Threshold,” from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

200. “Threshold,” from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Shout out to “I’m So Sad, So Very, Very Sad” and “We Hate You, Please Die” (sweet, love this one). There wasn’t enough room.

But what a perfect way to begin this list. “We are Sex Bob-omb and we’re here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff!” It’s such a high energy song. Also, written by Beck, in case you couldn’t tell by the sound.


Pic of the Day: “I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.”
