Starting pitchers going longer than five innings? Where we're going, we don't need starting pitchers that go longer than five innings.

For the third year in a row, the Milwaukee Brewers have won the season before it even started with a video spoof. The Crew previously riffed on "The Sandlot" and "Mean Girls," and now, befitting their new retro-tastic look, they're doing their best impression of the beloved '80s classic "Back to the Future." Check it out:

This season may be unlike any other, but one thing never changes: The Brewers crush these preseason videos.

Once again, Brent Suter has proven to be the Christian Bale of baseball-playing actors, transforming into Christopher Lloyd's iconic Doc Brown with maniacally smiling glee. Up-and-coming star Keston Hiura takes up Marty McFly's signature puffy vest with screen presence. The old ball-shaped bullpen-mobile even makes an ideal DeLorean substitute! It's the perfect way to get pumped up for a Brewers season and an overall 2020 MLB season that was far from perfect trying to get up to speed. (And I'm just saying, every year the Brewers have made one of these preseason spoofs, they've made the playoffs. And you know what they say about winning streaks ...)

So enjoy this new Brewers blockbuster and get excited for the upcoming season, expected to throw out the first pitch on July 23-24. 

In related baseball news, I've heard rumors that Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told the Chicago Cubs that if they didn't lose every game to the Crew this year, that he'd melt their brains.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
