The 2020 Film Release Calendar: October

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: #193 – “When Can I See You Again,” from Wreck-It Ralph

 

193. “When Can I See You Again,” from Wreck-It Ralph

Ah yes, that song from Wreck-It Ralph from the group that brought us “Fireflies.” I remember hearing this song the first time during the end credits of the movie and thinking, “Owl City… really?” But you know what? It’s a really charming song that perfectly fits the film it’s in. And end credits song, admittedly, but it’s just a very likable song that puts a smile on your face. Slightly concerned that the content is basically what people ask in movie theaters nowadays — “When are they gonna make another one?” — but we’ll just ignore that part and treat it like most bubblegum pop and not actually pay attention to the lyrics.
