, 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+.

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

Movie #11, 2011's "Zookeeper."

I do not know what this one is or is about.

πŸ¦” "Zookeeper" (2011) 

both the girl he proposed to and his brother have implied to Kevin James that being a zookeeper is kind of a rubbish job, ?????

it's not like he's a mall cop????

πŸ¦” "Zookeeper" (2011) 

oh the animals can TALK, i see

it's THAT kind of hour and a half

πŸ¦” "Zookeeper" (2011) 

the animals are teaming up to help Kevin James sort out his love life???

πŸ¦” "Zookeeper" (2011) 

the animal gags are solid, but the romcom stuff ends up very pick-up artist-y, yuck

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

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

Show newer

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

@Alexis The sad thing? In the original story this movie is based on, no wives die.

Nolan's gotta Nolan (his way into killing wives for men's plots)

πŸ•΄οΈ "The Prestige" (2006) 

@Alexis Out of context, this is probably the most accurate statement anyone has ever made about actual genius scientist Nikola Tesla.

@The_T @Alexis Hey, I never blarted you. On an unrelated note, you should watch The Dilemma and not look anything up about it, it's a very interesting movie about a complicated ethical dilemma, trust me.
