I ‘Spy’ A Movie That Can Work Well With The Bounce Back

Prior to my re-assessment of Uncharted, it dawned on me that only two (Christopher Robin, Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget) of the eight movies up for assessment/re-assessment are guaranteed locks to make the group of movies that have spots 2,141 through 2,170. And with all of that being said, that leaves potentially one more spot open, thus the decision to find something that can close out this particular selection protocol. 

Enter Spy, a movie that was phased out of Project consideration twice, due to reasons that I don’t even remember now. But after A] Coming away thinking that Rose Byrne’s character in this movie is way less vulgar than her character in Get Him To The Greek, B] Constantly pursuing a third Morena Baccarin movie for the Project and C] Thinking that a Byrne and Melissa McCarthy collaboration can be a perfect March Madness style opponent for The Bounce Back, I decided to pardon it from the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, so that I can re-assess it a second time. Plus, given that I want to have this movie in that same powerful block as 12 Strong, Dead Calm, Big Night, Benji, Sueno and Uncharted, it’ll be the very next one that I’ll assess/re-assess, so that it doesn’t have an uphill climb against any of the six movies that are not named Christopher Robin and Chicken Run: Dawn Of The Nugget. But should half (Porco Rosso, Annapolis, White Lion) of those six movies pan out, then a “Night Swim” is in the cards for next week.

Alright, this is the last ever time that I’ll blog about a Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention pardon, as most of the While & After movie focus beyond this will be on at least 130 new or fairly new movies trying to make the Project. 

Tune in sometime next month to which 23 movies advanced or will advance to Tier 5.
