A yearly overview of the clues of upcoming titles provided by Criterion and Jason Polan in the monthly newsletter. Proudly pun-ful, characteristically corny, and always awaited with bated breath.
Some of the best clues Polan has ever scribbled to paper. A couple of obvious blu clues for some long in the collection upgrades. A plethora of birds for eating, politicking, and ruling the universe. 4 angry earths mocking the look that many had at the announcement of this release (not me). A marrying eye that’s right on the nose, and a pooch that couldn’t be for anything else. A European map that still makes me snicker and some top-tier Ingmar that might make you think that HD-DVD was making a comeback. Wrap it all up with a sickly rodent that some still swear is Ratso Rizzo and you’ve got a typically strong year with puns to match.
