Movie #12: This spring's "Underwater," because I'll watch Kristen Stewart fight a Cthulhu, sure.

Tonight's movie, #13, "An American Pickle."

Seth Rogen is watchable enough, and I love a pickle, I assume that averages out to something I'll enjoy.

Show thread

Movie #14: 1973's "Live and Let Die." Third Bond in a row with a different face than the last one, let's see how this one does.

Show thread

I've put on movie #15: 1974's "The Man with the Golden Gun," a film that sure appears to open with a Sir Christopher Lee third nipple reveal.

Show thread

More clearing out of my downloads folder, movie #16: 2008 political dramedy "Swing Vote," which I think is about Kevin Costner somehow getting to cast the One Vote the (fictionalised) 2008 election hangs on.

Show thread

Once again I return to the downloads folder for some early-lockdown movies with "Capone." (#17!)

There was a lot of talk when this released about how this redeems Trank as a director post-"Fant4stic," and that's fair β€” it's well-made, and there's some great sequences in here, but at no point does he actually manage to make me *care* about this person or his family, which makes it all a bit flat.

Hardy, of course, plays a terrific disease-riddled Capone losing what little is left of his mind.

Heading out to see #19, "Tenet." ...Or, perhaps, I've just come back from seeing it?

Show thread

Movie #20: I kept getting interrupted, so I watched it in chunks over the past couple days, but I rewatched "A Bug's Life."

It was fine. Better'n I remembered.

Show thread

Heading out to see the second half of movie #10, or, movie #21: Kill Bill vol. 2.

I assume in this one she Kills Bill.

Show thread

Movie #24: Apparently the shortest film ever nominated for Best Picture, "She Done Him Wrong" is only about an hour long.

Ya gotta hope that's not all it's got goin' for it.

Show thread

Movie #25, I've put on something called "Time Trap," because, frankly, you can't put something called "Time Trap" where I can see it and not expect me to bite.

The dog is called Boss, which I think is fun.

Show thread

Tonight's movie, #26, is "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure." Not that the third one is actually coming out here, I don't think, so no rush and all.

Show thread

Heading out to see New Mutants, even though it's almost certainly trash. Movie #27.

Show thread

Movie #29, I'm heading out to see "Misbehaviour," which looked alright from the one trailer I saw in front of "Personal History of David Copperfield" the other week.

Show thread

Movie #30. I'm about halfway through "I'm Thinking of Ending Things."

It's... a bit... like having a ham thrown at you.

Show thread

Have put on movie #31, "The Spy Who Loved Me."

...That could be the title of half the Bonds I've seen so far.

Show thread

Wasn't gonna watch another Bond just yet but I guess in this one he GOES TO SPACE??

Movie #32 is 1979's "Moonraker."

Show thread

Movie #35, 1933 Best Picture nominee "State Fair," which I understand is, shock, gasp, twist, about a family attending a state fair.

Show thread

Am 40 minutes into movie #37, HBO 2008 American election drama "Game Change" (2012), because America continues to baffle, confound, fascinate, and be a primary source of headaches.

Show thread

Heading out to the movie theatre for movie #38, "Pitch Perfect 2," because I thought the first one was fun.

Show thread

Movie #39, I've put on the 1983 Bond picture "Octopussy," which, you definitely couldn't call a film that in the Year of Luigi 2020.
