, 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.

Movie #12, 2017's "The Zookeeper's Wife."

I also don't know what this one is about, but from the Netflix thumbnail it looks like a WW2 movie.

(I think that's a reverse blarting.)

Movie #13, we move on from zoos to the jungle, where the animals are keeping a small human? Absolute madness.

It's 2016's live-action "The Jungle Book."

Movie #14, 1934 Best Picture nominee "Viva Villa!"

I'm pretty sure Wallace Beery is in brownface in this one. :/

Movie #15, 2010's "Four Lions." Terrorism comedy, I'm pretty sure.

Movie #18, 2015's "Trumbo," in which Bryan Cranston plays the sequel elephant to Dumbo.

#19, I kinda fell off the rewatch over the summer, but I've put 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" on.

#21, 1934 Best Picture nominee "Here Comes the Navy," which is probably pretty blatant propaganda? Sigh, oh well.

#22, 2020's "The Kid Detective." Adam Brody plays the former titular getting thrown into a Real Case, I think?

Let's watch another one, I wanna stay at one a day, #23, 2020's "Black Bear."

No idea what it's about, Aubrey Plaza's in it.

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

I thought Bryan Cranston was gonna be a lead in this but I'm guessing, him dying when Godzilla inevitably takes out this nuclear plant is gonna be the kid's origin story

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

the bad wig does little to persuade me otherwise

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

Cranston yelling in Japanese is very funny tho

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

"It's not the end of the world."


this is a godzilla movie

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

oh he's still alive even though he was, like

in the plant when it collapsed

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

"My WIFE! DIED here!"

my wiiife


๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

"Kill it."

there's no way the it you're killing is the it of this

ยท ยท 1 ยท 0 ยท 0

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

"All those nuclear tests in the 50s... Not tests. They were trying to kill it."

i mean what was wrong with "the nuclear tests created him"

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

what do these people always think shooting Godzilla is gonna fucking do

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

it's like pointing the world's tiniest water gun at a person

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

"Gojira may be the answer. I believe... he's here to restore balance."

solving your racoon problem with a wolf problem

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

if the only thing you're getting over the radio is barely intelligible yelling, i--

i don't think the bridge is clear

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

the trick to not having your city ruined by any godzillas is to simply not have any iconic roughly godzilla-sized landmarks

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

i'm extremely not invested in Son of Cranston's story at any point so far, but everything else is solid

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

it's peanuts to Shin Godzilla, obviously, but that was okay

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

@InternetEh too much camo, he disappears into the role so well i can barely see him

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

@Alexis Son of Cranston was the worst one, good thing Cranston Goes To Space put the series back on track.

๐ŸฆŽ "Godzilla" (2014) 

@kurt I've been saying this for years, Bride of Cranston was nowhere near as bad as people insist.
