, 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.

Movie #8, 2008's "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Extended cut again.


#9, "We Bought a Zoo," because I've been making fun of the title for nearly a full decade and it's on Disney+.

Β· Β· 2 Β· 0 Β· 0

this motion picture about a family who Buys a Zoo plays the fact that the house they're buying comes with the titular Zoo as a reveal

if the house i was buying came with a lion, i would not be buying that house

🦁 "We Bought a Zoo" (2011) 

this house comes with not only a zoo but also love interests for both Matt Damon and his son, very convenient

Movie #10, or #250 since I started counting, 2006's "The Prestige," or "Batman v. Wolverine: What if Stage Magic But Too Much."

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

The third act -- "the hardest part... the Prestige!" -- of this movie better blow me the fuck away.

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"...The whole town has electricity."

well hot diggity shit

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

both of them should stop taking bearded volunteers immediately

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

oh, it's Bowie

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"You're going to need a better disguise."

pointy yellow and black helmet

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"I'd like you to meet Gerald Root."

is that just Jackman again
i mean, yes, that's a bloody good double, then

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

Nolan's making a real point of covering up Borden's man Fallon's face. Secret Twin, for sure.

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

best guess before they reveal it or i'm wrong, Tesla's got a fucking teleporter

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

Mr Tesla does not appear to have a fucking-- what the shit

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"Don't forget your hat."


πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

what the shit tho

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"Do you trust me? Then trust Fallon."


πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"Before she killed herself--"

nolan's gotta get as many dead wives in as possible

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"Man's reach -- exceeds his imagination!"

*jazz hands* The Prestige~!

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

"I always have been."


@Alexis for half a second I was very confused and thought you were announcing you were buying a house

@The_T i thoroughly checked this apartment for lions before my pen ever came near the rent contract

@Alexis my apartment has a no-pet policy so I'm constantly disappointed there are no lions

@benk @Alexis I originally just wrote "no-cat policy". but idc, cats are cats

@Alexis I think you should watch Zookeeper, The Zookeper, The Zookeeper's Wife, Zoo in Budapest and Poison in the Zoo next.

@Alexis Zoolander isn't set in a zoo, it's a fucking rip off, total false advertising class action lawsuit.

@kurt I'm actually really tempted by your list, but I can't even find the first two.

I did find a torrent link for the 2011 Zookeeper film if you want (it's 600 mb and claims to be 720p).

Zookeeper's Wife is on Belgian netflix at least.

The other three I'm not finding either.

@Alexis Aah, wait, if you have some sort of vpn Zookeeper (2011) is also on Canadian netflix.

@kurt But send me the link for the 2011 one, I'll happily commit to the bit for two movies worth.

@Alexis also, if this film were a 2020 YouTube video it would instead have a clickbait title. "We Bought a House but We Didn't Expect There to be a Zoo?!?!?!"

@The_T I almost feel like it wouldn't even mention the zoo, and just be titled "We Bought a House and Got a HUGE Surprise"

@Alexis you're right; I think mine was more of a Light Novel title actually

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

@Alexis Haha, remember those days before the 2021 disaster.. ooh, hold on, overshot my time machine again.
