, 2021 edition!

In 2020 I watched 101 movies from very early into first lockdown until August 11, and the another 138 between then and last night.

I did not do a formal thread for the first 101, but I did do one for the next 138: beepboop.one/@Alexis/104677806

Today's movie, #1 of 2021, or #240 since I started counting, 1995's "Johnny Mnemonic," because I think I saw someone say it's set in 2021? A topical affair!

Movie #2, 2002's "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones," because exasperated sigh.

Movie #3, 1933 Best Picture nominee "Lady for a Day."

I thiiiink this one is about a homeless woman who gets to be posh for a day? We'll, uhhh, see how that goes.

Movie #4, 2020's "Let Them All Talk," which I understand is about Meryl Streep as a snooty Author going to America on the RMS Queen Mary 2. In 2019, obviously.

Movie #5, the 1933 "Little Women."

I've seen the 2019 one -- these women had better be the absolute goddamn tiniest women you ever did see.

Movie #6, 1934 Best Picture nominee "It Happened One Night."

I'm pretty sure this is the one romcoms, like. Come from. This is The Romcom.

Movie #7, 1934 Best Picture nominee, "The House of Rothschild," which, sigh, I imagine is about the family of European bankers, because what other Rothschilds are there.

's got Boris Karloff in it, I guess.

🏦 "The House of Rothschild" (1934) 

oh, I see

this is gonna be one of those that's incredibly, very, so, so racist on the way to telling you how bad racism is, innit

🏦 "The House of Rothschild" (1934), in which the movie is antisemitic 

if you showed this to an enthusiastic antisemite they'd have a terrific time

🏦 "The House of Rothschild" (1934), in which Alex describes how this movie is antisemitic 

I should be more specific -- this movie that I'm assuming will in the long run be about how great the Rothschilds are literally starts with cartoonishly stereotypical Jewish folks hiding their money and fixing their books because the tax man is coming.

🏦 "The House of Rothschild" (1934), I think the worst bit is probably over 

After a timeskip, the Rothschild family now appear to have single-handedly funded Napoleon's defeat.

Oh, that's George Arliss, him from, what's his face, that very boring movie about the British Prime Minister.
