The 2021 Film Release Calendar: Films Without Release Dates (M-Z)

It’s been such a protracted year, but finally we’re ready to finish the Release Calendar (and finally I can actually start watching stuff from this year in earnest.

By now, the calendar’s starting to get more filled out than it usually is when I start going over everything and we’re starting to get a sense that maybe, just maybe, by the latter half of the year movie theaters will be open and operating again at a level relatively near to what we’re used to.

So, in the hopes of that happening, let’s go over all the stuff that’s fixing to come out.

Here are all the films that don’t yet have release dates: (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “When I was just a little girl / I asked my mother what will I be / Will I be pretty will I be rich / Here’s what she said to me / Que sera sera / Whatever will be will be / The future’s not ours to see / Que sera sera / What will be will be.” ♫ (65th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Why can’t they understand the way we feel / They just don’t trust what they can’t explain / I know we’re different, but deep inside us / We’re not that different at all / And you’ll be in my heart / Yes you’ll be in my heart / From this day on / Now and forever more.” ♫

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Beautiful music / Dangerous rhythm / It’s something daring, The Continental / A way of dancing that’s really ‘entre nous’ / It’s very subtle, The Continental / Because it does what you want it to do / It has a passion, The Continental / An invitation to moonlight and romance.” ♫

Pic of the Day: ♫ “So many nights I’d sit by my window / Waiting for someone to sing me his song / So many dreams I kept deep inside me / Alone in the dark but now you’ve come along / And you light up my life / You give me hope to carry on / You light up my days and fill my nights with song.” ♫

Pic of the Day: ♫ “When we’re together, gray skies clear up / And I cheer, to where I’m less depressed / It’s sincerer from the bottom of my heart / I just can’t take it when we’re apart / We belong together / We belong together / Yes we do / You’ll be mine forever / We belong together / We belong together / Oh, it’s true / It’s gonna stay this way forever / Me and you.” ♫


Oscars 2020: PGA Awards

The PGA Awards were handed out last night.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Nomadland took home Best Picture, which basically shores up that discussion. All that’s left to announce are BAFTA and SAG. And no one’s expecting BAFTA to vote for anything except Nomadland and SAG doesn’t really matter so much. Nomadland’s not nominated there and the only outcome there that will affect the race is if Chicago 7 wins, thereby nominally making it the second choice. Otherwise, that one’s locked.

In other categories, Soul won Best Animated Feature (no surprise), Hamilton won a Streaming Award (no shit) and My Octopus Teacher won the Documentary category. Only that and Time are in the Doc Feature field and, honesly, the win doesn’t mean a whole lot to me at the moment. Since the category began in 2007, only five PGA doc winners went on to win the Oscar. And you know what they were? The obvious populist five: Man on Wire, The Cove, Searching for Sugar Man, Amy and O.J. Made in America. Other stuff that won here are the docs that got ignored by the Academy: Life Itself, Jane, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Apollo 11. It’s hard to put that much stock into this, though it is a piece of information and given how the doc category is a giant question mark this year, I am wondering if we’re gonna see a March of the Penguins situation emerge with this one. Because truly, right now I can make a case for four of the five nominees.

But otherwise the big news to come out of here is that the Best Picture race is locked and depending on how the BAFTAs and all the guilds go, we might have a whole lot of locked categories coming our way over the next three weeks.

Oscars 2020: WGA Awards

The WGA handed out awards last night. This will help us figure out what’s gonna win the Screenplay awards.

At this point, given the protracted season, we kinda know what’s most likely to win, but this is definitely a big help. Once BAFTA announces in a few weeks we’ll know for sure. But this is the one you definitely wanna see those top contenders win.

Though here, the presumptive Adapted winner wasn’t eligible, so it’s really just a matter of what they gave it to instead to see what people are gonna consider the red herring vote come Oscar night.

Let’s see what they went with: (more…)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Call me irresponsible / Call me unreliable / Throw in undependable, too / Do my foolish alibis bore you? / Well, I’m not too clever, I just adore you / Call me unpredictable / Tell me I’m impractical / Rainbows I’m inclined to pursue / Call me irresponsible / Yes, I’m unreliable / But it’s undeniably true / I’m irresponsibly mad for you.” ♫
