The 2020 Film Release Calendar: June

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.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #197 – “Montage,” from Swiss Army Man


197. “Montage,” from Swiss Army Man

Who’d have thought a movie about a farting corpse would have such sweet and lovely music to it? It’s hard not to be swept away by the beauty of this song. I’m doubly impressed by it because the entire song is literally a joke! It’s a song called “Montage” that plays over a montage. So rather than writing a song like the one just below this song on the list, that plays over a montage, they literally just wrote a song that announces the montage as a montage. Which is amazing.

Pic of the Day: “You know what I remembered in my dream?” “No, what did you remember?” “I remembered when I was older.” “When you were older?” “Yes, you were also there, but you were different. Do you remember?”
