What did you think of it? Saw some people comparing it to Blue Valentine earlier in the week, which really piqued my interest.

The performances are great, the first scene is incredible, but the last 30 minutes turn it into a poorly written, and difficult to believe, soap opera.

Got it. Looking forward to checking it out when it hits Netflix in the coming months.

Netflix just spent $30 million on Malcolm & Marie, the secretly-shot John David Washington film. Can't see it faring any better than the director's last one (Assassination Nation).

A Rachel Leigh Cook-led romantic comedy directed by Mark Steven Johnson has been in the top 10 watched movies in the States for the past 2 weeks, being within the first handful of entries in the just added/new releases section is really all you need to be successful on Netflix.

Plus you're completely ignoring that Levinson's stock is way up after the breakout success of Euphoria last summer and more importantly, Zendaya is a legit star.

But it's $30 million on what's basically an experimental film from a director with no success in film. Speaking of Levinson, we've seen nothing for Deep Water (which he adapted for the screen) and that's still scheduled for November.

As for TV guys whose stock went up after a popular show leading them to direct a film, it didn't help David Chase, Matthew Weiner, or Noah Hawley. And their shows were way bigger than Euphoria.

And back to the release dates, Universal will open the Jennifer Lopez/Owen Wilson comedy Marry Me on 2/12/2021. Rumors have this one being an AMC exclusive followed by PVOD.

I'm actually excited for this one, but I'm still not cool with John David Washington being a love interest to Zendaya, who's almost half his age. I'd think in a post-Me Too industry, this wouldn't be accepted anymore.

There was that Kevin Bacon/Amanda Seyfried movie recently where they played a married couple. But then again, that was a Blumhouse production.

Remember that Thomas the Tank Engine movie that had Alec Baldwin and the girl from Matilda? I found Fathom Events is reissuing it next month to promote the Blu-ray release. This should satisfy those weirdos on YouTube.

Also, Greenland has lost its date. I didn't see very many seeing this Deep Impact ripoff anyway.

It looks like Wolfwalkers, Cartoon Saloon's project for Apple+, will get a theatrical run to boost its Oscar chances as GKIDS has gotten involved with its release.

The Croods 2 will now open on 11/25/2020 so it can hit VOD in time for Christmas. Whether or not Soul will move remains to be seen.

Sony has pulled Connected, Peter Rabbit 2, and Morbius from their dates. I'm beginning to think Sony has no intention of ever releasing any big movies again (they however have two Stage 6 titles set to open in the next few weeks).

I also expect The Happiest Season to lose its date despite recently getting an MPA rating.
