The 2020 Film Release Calendar: April

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 April: (more…)


Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #199 – “Girls,” from Sing Street

 

199. “Girls,” from Sing Street

Our first of the songs from this wonderful movie. Don’t worry, they’re all gonna be on here. This is what original film songs are about. Not that, “We wrote a dumb pop song for our end credits.” This movie’s got hits. They wrote every song for the band, and they’re all fantastic. This is the weakest of the bunch, but it’s still good enough to have made this list. It’s just a lovely tune.


Pic of the Day: “Little by little the look of the country changes because of the men we admire. You’re just going to have to make up your own mind one day about what’s right and wrong.”
