The Big Picture’s Long List is every single movie that gets mentioned on The Ringer’s Big Picture podcast this year, and I aim to watch them all (or as many as possible).
We’re at the halfway point for the year, and we’ve had 50 podcasts (6 this month) and 1,683 films mentioned (just 109 this month). Cautious optimism in May was quickly overcome by mounting dread due to various factors in the US and abroad. We had a reduction in the number of pods and therefore the number of movies, not that anyone is holding that against the team. Finishing with the list of Movies about Movies was a great return to form, but the constant discussion about Tenet is increasingly monotonous; just push to 2021 or release to VOD, you cowards!
