Movie #59 is 1933's "The Invisible Man."

Incredible that they caught him on camera.

Movie #61, the 1941 motion picture "The Wolf Man."

Like the Invisible Man, but he's a furry.

The next thing I was gonna watch isn't done downloading, so I guess I'm watching something called "Hubie Halloween"? Movie #62.

The last of the classic Universal monster flicks on my list for October -- I've enjoyed these, I should watch the rest of them at some point -- movie #63 is 1954's "The Creature from the Black Lagoon."

Movie #64, "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," "Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World," or whatever it's called.

Let's watch a /real/ one, it's movie #65, 1960's "Psycho," or, "Screechy Screechy Shower Knife."

Movie #66, everything I've ever heard about this one is it sucks eggs, 1997's "Alien: Resurrection."

Movie #67, "Gremlins 2: The New Batch."

Let's find out what the fuck that Key & Peele sketch everyone loves was about.

Movie #68, I'm watching something called "The Stone Tape," from 1972.

I think it's a haunted house thing by the Quatermass guy?

I've always sort of not-bothered with this one on account of its poor reputation -- movie #71 is 2003's "Hulk."

Have put on something called "Velvet Buzzsaw." Movie #72.

* art gallery
* mass homicide
* Jake Gyllenhaal, I'm pretty sure

movie #73

the 2017 "The Mummy," of the trailer with the missing audio tracks, of the failed called shot cinematic universe,

at least Tom Cruise is usually pretty watchable?

today's movie is #75, "Tomorrow Never Dies."

if I'd watched it tomorrow, would it be "Today Never Dies"?

let's catch up on some American news

movie #76 is "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm"

Today's movie, #77, is the 1991 "The Addams Family."

Another one from my list for this month that's set at Christmas, I guess.

Forgot to download what I was gonna watch, so today's motion picture movie film is 2017's "The Babysitter," because it's on Netflix. #78.

uhhh #79, 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs," I guess

i better not hear a peep outta no sheep

Had to watch this for school, and it's on Letterboxd, so I guess it counts.

#80 is "Muster," or "Rushes," a 2012
German installation film about the cyclical nature of trauma, as seen from three points in history.

#82, "The Babysitter: Killer Queen," because the first one was actually pretty good.#82, "The Babysitter: Killer Queen," because the first one was actually pretty good.

I'm halfway through #83, 1928 Charlie Chaplin picture "The Circus."

This is great, but the music is getting on my nerves.

#84, "Addams Family Values."

Truly, the scariest thing I could end the month on.

#85, I'm 40 minutes into 1933's "Cavalcade," which won Best Picture.

Depicting the life and times of a London family through the first 33 years of the 1900s, it's actually pretty good?

Look, the thing I actually want is to know more about the Legend of Curly's Gold, but what kind of fool just skips straight to the sequel?

#86 is 1991's "City Slickers," which I know nothing about except that I guess Curly's Gold doesn't come up until 1994.

I've had lunch and am 15 minutes into 1994's "City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold."

* Curly is the cowboy who died in the first one.
* He did seem like the type to have a legend about his gold.

#88. I have no idea what 2010's "Remember Me" is about, what genre it is, or anything -- I just know that there's what I imagine must be an absurd last-minute twist that it's set on 9/11 and that Robert Pattinson is

in the wrong place

at the wrong time.

#91, I've got a soft pretzel and 1999's "The World Is Not Enough," let's go.

I think in this one James Bond shoots some people.

#92. While doing other things, I watched the Blumhouse "Fantasy Island" that I skipped in theatres earlier this year.

It was pretty stupid! But in that fun way you gotta be in the mood for.

#93. I'm about 15 minutes into 1933 Best Picture nominee "The Private Life of Henry VIII," and they've already executed the Queen of England.

Who knows what Desert Bus is gonna do to watching a movie every day, so let's get another one in: #95, 2001's "Jurassic Park III," the one I was invited to three different birthday parties to see in the cinema when I was 10.

#97. Let's Bames one more Jond. 2002's "Die Another Day."

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

honestly glad this is the last one of the original run and they never had this version of Jims Bomp, like. interact with a post-9/11 world.

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

hovercraft chaaaase

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

oh, weird, title sequence with, like, actual narrative in it

"If I'd had my way, you'd still be in North Korea."

damn, harsh

i just feel like rich english pricks don't get into as many insane sword fights these days as they used to, you know

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

lmao, a fucking invisible car

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

some absolutely laughably bad cgi here and there

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

this is all very much on the sillier end of the pool

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

i /like/ the sillier end of the pool

but still, a weird one to go out on

#98, "Alien vs. Predator."

I imagine we're moving ever closer to the edge of where I still give a shit about either of these franchises.

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

what's the point of a modern-day setting if you're just gonna do the deep space mining operation thing anyway, just on Antarctica

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

This all has big high-budget fanfilm energy.

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

boy this sure is a motion picture

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

there are no characters in this film, just stock archetypes pilfered from the two source franchises

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

this movie insists you're here for the action and not the characters, which would be a fucking gamble even if the action was any good (it's no good)

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

like, James Bond tends to be pretty stock character-y, too, but at least there you know there's usually a cool chase or some laser bullshit coming up that you can look forward to

#99, or #200 since I started counting, 1997's "The Fifth Element."

I'm pretty sure this is
* in space.
* ridiculous.

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

"Shooting will only make it stronger."

well that's never good news

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

a lot of a lot going on here going on here

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

"Who is it?"
"............My wife!"

korben

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

this is for sure one of those that makes a lot of stuff that came after make sense

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

"You miserable bastard, I never should have pushed you out."
"...Ma?"

well it's not gonna be the mayor of new york, is it

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

"A perfect replica of the old opera house -- but who cares!"

hahaha

βš›οΈ "The Fifth Element" (1997) 

it's weird that that's Gary Oldman when it should clearly be Sam Rockwell

#100, 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."

I assume there's good robots and evil robots and a future of some kind.

πŸ€– "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) 

hm. very rehash-y.

πŸ€– "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) 

"Drop the weapon! And the coffin!"

i have absolutely nothing to say but there are some good bits

πŸ€– "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) 

haha, fuck, what an ending

I've put too much time into putting this together not to, so I guess #101: I'm watching 2015's "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2," with this year's episode of "Til Death Do Us Blart" on top.

I have, obviously, come on now, not seen "Paul Blart Mall Cop."

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@Alexis hovercraft chase through aldershot barracks done up to be north korea

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@doe the English countryside feels like North Korea in the exact way Vancouver can feel like most North American cities -- you totally get what they're going for, but you can tell it's not quite right

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@Alexis it's the same watching world war z - the philadelphia scenes are all shot in the centre of glasgow and you can just tell there's something off about them despite the lengths they went to to disguise it

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@Alexis I don't care if people call me an imperialist, it's a damn shame we don't see it more.

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@kurt i'm entirely in favour as long as some of them die occasionally

⚰️ πŸ“† "Die Another Day" (2002) 

@Alexis Did they let him keep his learner's permit to have sex?

re: πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@Alexis I always meant to watch the Predator films and the rest of the Alien films just so I can cap it off with this garbage

re: πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@The_T As I understand it, the second AVP is even worse.

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@Alexis If it's set under the ice on Antartica it would be much better to have it set during the time of Scott and Amundsen's race to the geographic South Pole, like it being what really happened to Scott's party or a search party or something.

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@kurt There's a pre-title sequence -- I guess I watched the "Unrated Edition" -- where a Norwegian whaler in 1904 has an Encounter, and that absolutely would have been a better film.

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@Alexis Would they make as good characters as, let me guess, Military Man, Science Guy, Sketchy Dude and Woman, though?

πŸ‘½ πŸ‘Ύ "Alien vs. Predator" (2004) 

@kurt They've combined Science Guy and Woman into Sensible Woman Scientist Who Knows This is a Bad Plan, but other than that, dead on.

Hard to tell, tough, they'd probably just do the same stock characters with Old Timey Hair and Worse Weapons.

@Alexis the one golden moment from that otherwise meh movie is the "tell her who i am" scene

πŸ€– "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) 

@Alexis It has been said that every Terminator after the first one is basically just the first one again.

πŸ€– "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003) 

@kurt The second one at least has the twist of Schwarzenegger playing a good guy.
