Welcome to (the re-installed) Sneak Leaks, the page in which we leak information (via blog form) about movies that could potentially join the current movie assessment/re-assessment roster.
Or should we say a constantly updating entry, as specific Two ThouCentennial activity will be documented on this page from now through October 9, 2022.
To find out our opening content for this constantly updating entry, simply check it below.
“Eight Movies For One Spot”
One of my favorite speeches following a loss is Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams addressing his team, following their 109-103 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of the 2021 NBA Finals. And for those of you who do not know what that speech entailed, well it entailed him telling his team a.k.a. the NBA team that I root for you that they had three games to win two, only for the Bucks to close that series out in six games.
Alright, so you might wondering what does that well-intended speech have to do with this entry, right?
Well, when dealing with a movie assessment/re-assessment schedule as time-consuming as the one that I’m currently dealing with from the standpoint of determining what movies will have 2,000 of the overall guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spots, it’s all about using specific formulas, such as having a lot of options to work with to achieve one goal, which in this case is having eight movies battle it out for the tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot that will be revoked from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, hence the title of this entry and its subsequent editions.
In the fourth version of this entry, we will looking at five separate groups and the roles that they will play in determining in putting this 2,000-piece puzzle together, so get your snacks and drink ready, because there is going to be a lot to unpack here.
