    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    I didn't get around to this film until 2018 or 2019. I just assumed it was a summer blockbuster that wouldn't carry any weight as a film. OK, I was wrong. The Indianapolis speech is about as perfect a four-minute monologue as exists on film.

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    M was actually relatively difficult for me. I had another 6 live movies that I would have been perfectly happy with (several completely and totally safe in my estimation), and my gameplan had me passing on The Martian, not because I didn't want it, but because I thought it would be taken before...

    Group Stage playoffs

    Seems like a real tough sell for the top teams. Typically, the Bucks would have to go at least 4-3 against a #8 seed to move into the "top 8", while the Kings, if they snuck into the playoffs, would have to go at least 4-3 against a #1 seed - that's the bonus that the Bucks get for doing...

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    Clementine: This is it, Joel. It's going to be gone soon. Joel: I know. Clementine: What do we do? Joel: Enjoy it. I love love love love love love love this movie. If I had to guess which films, 80 years from now, were going to make the most "Best 100 Films of the Century" lists, this would be...

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    When I was a kid, I assumed it was the closing part of a trilogy. Wondered why nobody ever talked about the first two movies.

    #WWST?

    I think I'd do quite well on Slim's culinary desert island. Even put scallops in the right order.

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    This is all correct. But at the same time I think it's also correct to say that Ridley Scott is batting .333 in the Alien franchise (4-4 in the first game, followed by 8 strikeouts in the next two games), while James Cameron is batting about .750 (only one game, but 3-4).

    2020 Shelter in Place Alphabet Movie Draft - ROUND 4

    Not gonna speak for everybody, but I think that links are pretty bandwidth-friendly, so it shouldn't be a problem. BTW, I gather you're of a fairly tender age. Your selection of Holy Grail clearly means you have been raised properly.
