note: To be updated as I get around to it
more notes: All subject to change. the parentheses next to the titles show what kind of opening it is so if it says NY/LA or "limited" who knows what it'll come everywhere else. also: these are only the movies I think are of note, there are other stupider-looking movies which could turn out to be fabulous)
