It is now March of 2020…already, and given that I only wrote six total posts in February, I figured I’d give a brief update of what I hope to do for this site in March.
Wait a minute… Oh no… does this mean… THE RETURN OF THE FILLER POSTS?!
Aw well, it’s still probably better written than The Rise of Skywalker.
Seriously though, this is a one time return of filler, I swear. But talking of The Rise of Skywalker, one of my plans for the near future is to finish my reviews of the Star Wars movies. I was originally trying to review them all around the release of Rise of Skywalker going in episodic order, but only got up to the original film (Episode IV). It’s as if I saw something so contrived and messy that it disheartened me from continuing for a time…
So yes, that leaves Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and the entire sequel trilogy left to review. So hopefully I’ll get back to those soon.
Also, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, I plan to review Pixar’s Onward once I see it. And not too long after that, once the movie soaks in my mind a little, I hope to (finally) do a revised version of my ranking of every single Pixar film. Now we’ll know just how highly Cars 2 and The Good Dinosaur will rank!
Also also, I hope to do my film and video game awards for 2019 in March. Yeah, it’s kind of late, but I’m just one man, cut me some slack. After I’m done with the 2019 awards, I hope to do my lists of best games and films of the decade (2010 – 2019). And hopefully not long after, I can do my similar lists for the 2000s, 1990s and 1980s. Then maybe that will finally give me the incentive to (seriously, finally and for reals) make my all-time favorites lists.
And yes, as promised before, I will start reviewing TV/streaming shows soon. And also very yes, I will update you beautiful people on my game development learnings when I have something to update on.
So there you go. What I plan to write in March and the near future. Sorry again for the filler.

I’m pretty sure most fortune cookies are written better than The Rise of Skywalker, although the writers thereof usually aren’t subjected to as much sabotage. Indeed, I am really looking forward to seeing what you have to say of the sequel trilogy because it seemed to have the exact opposite trajectory of the original trilogy. And you know how I have that “Bad ending = disqualification” rule? Well, The Rise of Skywalker was so bad that I actually ended up having to disqualify the entire trilogy as a result.

Hahaha! That’s (sadly) probably true. Poor J.J. Abrams, as South Park put it he, at one time “made Star Wars great again.” Then Rian Johnson showed up and was basically like “Lol nope!” I still enjoy The Force Awakens, but it’s now impossible to feel that magic from it I once did just because I know its story ends up going nowhere, and ultimately turns into an incoherent mess.
