#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.

#26, 2017's "Kong: Skull Island."

I did initially intend to go see this at the time, but I found the Vietnam aesthetic of the trailers off-putting? We'll see.

#27, 2019's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters."

skreeeonk and all that

#28, I just grabbed some movies that I saw on multiple Oscar shortlists, I'm watching 2020's "News of the World," which I think has America's Finest Actor Tom Hanks in it?

#29, 2017's "Thor: Ragnarok," on the TV because the Blu-Ray was five bucks in the discount bookstore last year.

#30, 2021 motion picture "Psycho Goreman," which is about, I think, a kid who gets control of a sci-fi monster man?

#31, 2015's "The Intern," in which I assume Robert de Niro teaches his dumb millennial boss (Anne Hathaway?) to slow down a little? Something like that, I'm sure.

#32, I'm about halfway through 2016 found footage documentary "Dawson City: Frozen Time."

It's movie! 1934's "Cleopatra," #33.

I'm pretty sure I've heard this one is notable mostly for pushing the limits before the Hays Code starts getting enforced? We'll see.

#35, I'm about halfway through 2020 dead mall documentary "Jasper Mall."

I've put on #37, 2021's "The Dig."

Not sure what it's about, Ralph Fiennes is in it, set just before WW2, I'm pretty sure?

I've got it on Blu-Ray but I'm lazy so I've just got it on on Disney+ at my desk, #39, "Avengers: Infinity War."

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is mov-- musical #1, which I can't defend counting as a movie but I'm gonna thread for continuity's sake, anyway.

Back to movies, it's #40, 1934 Best Picture nominee "One Night of Love," which I'm pretty sure is:
* a musical rom-com
* only on the list for technical sound recording achievements that will be completely opaque to me because my copy is Pretty Bad πŸ‘

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is the musical, which I'm currently listening to. No pictures, but way better audio quality. Still very good.

In the category of "movies I downloaded but now can no longer remember why and I refuse to google it before I commit," #41, 2012's "Seven Psychopaths."

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #42, except this time I lazily edited it so there's no time loop and Phil Connors just turns into a good person overnight for no reason.

#43, I watched "In & of Itself," a film of a series of storytelling/magic stage performances.

Jeez. Dang.

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #44, though this time it's an experimental German thriller, because I'm watching 1998's "Lola rennt," commonly known in English as "Run Lola Run."

#45, 2019's "Captain Marvel."

I keep going "I don't think I've seen this one since it came out" but 2019 isn't that long ago.

#47, YouTuber/Uber driver/serial murderer horror movie "Spree," because apparently I'll watch any old shite.

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #48, except this time it's a different side of the US, a different time of year, a wedding instead of a holiday, and came out in 2020, in that I'm watching "Palm Springs."

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #49, except this time the loops go in reverse order, which was @thiskurt's idea.

Turns out Groundhog Day was yesterday.

#50, "È già ieri," or "Stork Day," a 2004 Italian remake of "Groundhog Day" that I couldn't find subtitles for, but, like, I'll figure out, I'm sure.

Oh, right, it's not Groundhog Day. Like, at all. Not even close.

#51, 2018's "Ant-Man and the Wasp."

#52, 2021's "Willy's Wonderland," a film made by people who could get Nic Cage but not the "Five Nights at Freddy's" rights.

#53, I saw somebody describe this as a Groundhog Day loop movie so I grabbed it without looking into it at all. The thumbnail of the poster made it look like a teen romcom.

2021's "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things."

Motion picture movie yes? It's #54, 2000's "Cast Away," because like twelve things reminded me of it this week.

I don't think I've ever seen it in full, though, just, like, in bits on TV.

To complete the trilogy of movies about Tom Hanks being stuck in places ("The Terminal," stuck in an airport, "Cast Away," stuck on an island) it's #55, 1986's "The Money Pit" in which Hanks is stuck, possibly /in/ a house, possibly /with/ a house, but at /least/ stuck in a hole.


#56, 2021's "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar."

No idea what this is about besides, presumably, both Barb and Star going to somewhere called Vista Del Mar.

Saw it get good reviews, it has Kristen Wiig in it, and I'll watch her have a nervous breakdown in pretty much anything.

#57, 2014 Disney live-action "Sleeping Beauty" spin-off "Maleficent," just in case 2021's "Cruella" drags this into a Kingdom Hearts Cinematic Multiverse.

I definitely do not believe Angelina Jolie can fly. Not buying it. Nice try, lads.

I feel like the original Sleeping Beauty probably did not have any big Lord of the Rings-style battlefield scenes in it.

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

is Maleficent's turn to evil here just fucking Kylo Ren's origin story again

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

good guy tries to kill you, now you have to go poison a princess about it, you know how it goes

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

"It's a girl! It's a girl!"

assigned poisoning victim at birth

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

i keep calling it a poisoning, but it's not, it's a curse with an eventual effect similar to a poisoning

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

nice baby you've got there, be a shame if something... happened to her on her 16th birthday specifically for some reason

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

It All Seemed Like a Good Idea At The Time. --Maleficent

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

I get that it's the power of the curse drawing her to it, but the room full of spinning wheels is a /bit/ goofy.

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

"She's only sleeping."

i mEAN,,

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

"Kiss her!"

yeah that's not gonna work tho is it

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

"You didn't do it properly!"

they met like once, y'all

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

True Love's Kiss is gonna be Maleficent, having come to Give A Shit About Her, kissing her on the forehead or something

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

this is much nicer than "a boy she barely knows has to make out with her while she's comatose"

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

this king can go the fuck to heck

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

'tis what it is, as a live-action Disney remake/reimagining, but it genuinely does a, like, decent job updating it for the 21st century?

That Was Okay

#58, 2019's "Avengers: Endgame," because let's just get this rewatch over with.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"Who puts mayo on a hot dog?"

absolutely demonic

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

This is an absolute checklist of a movie, so much it does because it Has To Get It Done, but also, in huge ways not at all what I was expecting walking in.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

Bringing in a second, fresher Thanos, for one thing. I can totally see how you get there, but weird thing to do, lads.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"Let's go get this son of a bitch."

the first twenty minutes of this motion picture are the actual conclusion to the last one

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"What did you do?"
"I went for the head."

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

*sighs in confirmed gay character*

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"Kid! Hey, kid! What the hell happened here?"

why it's christmas morning sir

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

everyone after Infinity War: where the fuck was Hawkeye

everyone during Endgame: why the fuck is Hawkeye

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

I like how they've developed Banner in these in ways-- I feel like you couldn't-a got to this point if he'd had two or three solo films in the middle somewhere.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"We're talking about time travel here, either it's all a joke or none of it is!"

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"Turns out resentment is corrosive."

this is why I only have one long-term grudge and limit myself to only one or two short-term grudges at any one time

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

I like all the bits where they hang around and goof off, but "Thor yells at NoobMaster69 on Fortnite" is maybe a step too far.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

i mean, Clint, what the fuck

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

absolutely no dealing with the fact that she found Clint mid-mass homicide

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

"If you pick the right year, there are three Stones in New York."

this is the kind of save-the-universe plan you only get in a franchise that is nowhere near as meticulously planned out as people think

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

see that's how you do Cap saying "hail hydra"

#59, or #297 since I started counting, 2016's "Army of One," because I'm always up for Nic Cage and Friz made it sound interestingly weird:

πŸ”— :twitter:

I assume this is Don Quixote by way of post-9/11 America.

πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

"Clinically speaking, he's as sane as you or me."

oh my god

πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

Cage fucking /disappears/ into this role.

πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

"Not knowing how to sail turned out to be a bigger liability than I initially thought."


πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

This is incredible.

πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

"Don't you think I look a little like Nic Cage in Con Air?"

i dunno, a bit, maybe

πŸ”ͺ "Army of One" (2016) 

A... difficult portrait of a certain kind of... American xenophobic foolishness at its most deluded, but also, terrific comedic work by Nic Cage. Genuinely very good.

#60, or #298 since I started counting, "Spider-Man: Far From Home," or "The One Where Spider-Man Has Access to An Arsenal of Military-Grade Weapons for Some Reason."

(I mean, I like this one, but.)

:spidey: "Spider-Man: Far From Home" (2019) 

Playing the Blip for laughs is the right call for /this one/, but I really hope we get another couple different angles on it from the next few movies and shows.

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

@Alexis is she cursed to be trapped in a room of spinning wheels,,,,

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

@a_breakin_glass she's cursed to prick herself on one (1) spinning wheel on the day she turns 16 and then, totally coincidentally, happens to come across the room where the king kept all (all) the spinning wheels that were destroyed to prevent the curse coming true

never heard of recycling, I guess

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

@Alexis @a_breakin_glass I love this movie so goddamn much. Sharlto is good in anything.

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

@Alexis assigned cursed at birth

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

@Alexis I hold a faint hope his spinoff series will address his murderous-vigilante phase.

But only faint.

:avengers: "Avengers: Endgame" (2019) 

@naga I'm not holding out hope for anything more than a line or two.
