Mob Movie League: Spring 2020

Spring 2020 Movies

It has begun! Finally!

(Yes, we’ve basically skipped the winter season – I apologize, but due to health concerns among extended family members, and the related fallout, it fell off my plate entirely.)

Everyone will be able to select 4 films during the draft, and 1 wildcard pick during the ongoing season.

As always critical score (50% of a film’s total) is locked to Rotten Tomatoes %.

Box Office (the other 50%) will be pulled from BoxOfficeMojo and converted into a % of 2019’s top 10 films.

    I’m in! Maybe I’ll pick better this time around.

  2. Aaron Jackson

    Somehow I’ve missed this.. so yeah sure i’m up for it.

  3. Anneliese

    If you’ve not started picking yet, can I still join?

  4. John Langejans

    TikTok…..

  5. jrdskinner

    Here we go, here we go!

    Do some research then shout out your pick!

  6. Jay

    Black Widow is my first selection

  7. Jax

    After much deliberation I guess I’ll take Quiet Place Part 2. Now watch it totally bomb.

  8. Yikes, I need to brush up on my upcoming releases!
    Birds of Prey because Margot Robbie’s Harley was very popular and it’s practically the perfect V-Day movie…

  9. Melissa

    Trolls World Tour for sure! The trailer has already been on repeat at our house for a few weeks.

  10. Anneliese

    No Time To Die

  11. Cody

    I’ll take Call of the Wild. Feel like nostalgia for Harrison is ripe enough right now.

  12. jrdskinner

    I’ll make a foolish decision based on my heart and take The New Mutants as my first pick, and a gamble on the Disney money machine with Artemis Fowl.

  13. Anneliese

    Fantasy Island (why not?)

  14. Melissa

    Irresistible please!

  15. Onward please!! Eeeekk Tom Holland haha! It’s hard not to love him….

  16. Jax

    I guess give me Scoob!

  17. Mildred Cady

    Bloodshot

  18. Raygan

    Slim pickins. I guess I’ll pick SpongeBob simply because Keanu is in it.

  19. Jay

    I ask to add and select “Come to daddy” and “Portrait of a lady on fire” for my roster.

  20. Raygan

    Peter rabbit because I actually want to see that ine

  21. Mildred Cady

    I’ll go with The Secret Garden.

  22. Jax

    Uhhh idk… Emma I guess

  23. Promising Young Woman – the trailer looks interesting and it kinda keeps in line with Birds of Prey

  24. Melissa

    Monster Problems

  25. Anneliese

    The Lovebirds

  26. jrdskinner

    To end the third round I’ll pick The Woman in the Window, because I suspect it may actually turn out to be a decent film.

    For my fourth I’ll take Spiral, because who doesn’t want to see Chris Rock reboot the Saw franchise?

  27. Cody

    Now I’m sad I didn’t look more into Spiral. But I’ll take the Personal History of David Copperfield for Dev Patel.

  28. Anneliese

    The Invisible Man

  29. Melissa

    Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always please

  30. Amanda

    My Spy, thank you! Sorry about the wait!

  31. Jax

    Uhh antebellum I guess

  32. Mildred Cady

    The way back

  33. J Langejans

    I will go with “Tokyo Godfathers” as my head nod to Jason Banks.

  34. jrdskinner

    First update is in place!

    Feel free to scream out your wildcard picks. First to name it means first to claim it.

    We also have some initial entries for the ‘injured’ list:

    Jay – Tokyo Godfathers is an older movie that’s being re-released in 4k, so it’s outside the release window.

    Melissa – Monster Problems has been pushed back to 2021

  35. Jax

    Alright I guess I’ll take photograph

  36. Jay

    Well if Tokyo is out my wild card was going to be “Wild Goose Lake”, I’ll put that one in for the injured then.

  37. Melissa

    First Cow please!

  38. Jay

    I will take “Extra Ordinary” as my wild card.

  39. Greyhound for my wildcard please.
    I mean it’s Tom Hanks and a war movie, I can’t pass it up

  40. This may be the craziest season we’ve ever played. While I’ve already done the update for this week, I’m going to need to sit down and figure out which other films have been pushed back.

    Right now I know we need replacements for Fast & Furious 9, Bond, and Mulan. Antlers has also been pushed back. There’s a lot of talk about Black Widow, but I haven’t seen anything definitive yet.

    If anyone happens to spot any other notices in the wild, please keep me posted.

  41. Amanda

    I think New Mutants has also been pushed back by Disney

  42. I’ve managed to track down the plugin that was causing it to appear as if accepted comments weren’t being posted.

    Things are a bit amok at work at the moment, but I’ll provide a damage report on the movie roster by Friday.

  43. I’m guessing this is also COVID cancelled?
