#MovieThread, 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: https://beepboop.one/@Alexis/104677806709308567
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.
Movie #8, 2008's "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Extended cut again.
Nobody's gotta explain chronological order or nothin' to me, I've seen all this before and I'm just sticking to release order because that's what the podcast I'm watching along with is doing.
Anakin's just a completely different dude here. Doesn't even make my fucking skin crawl.

it does occur to me that this is a weird moment to be watching a Star War in, but I guess it'll keep me from just 100% doomscrolling
