#118, or #357 since I started counting, the 2021 "Mortal Kombat."

I know very little about this franchise, but it seems awful violent.

#119, or #358 since I started counting, 2001 TV movie "Hotel!"

My understanding is:
* Notable in 2021 mostly for having Paul McGann, Peter Capaldi, and Bradley Walsh in it.
* This was never rebroadcast for "sensitivity reasons," because 9/11 happened.

#120, or #359 since I started counting, 1935 Best Picture nominee and winner "Mutiny on the Bounty."

#121, or #360 since I started counting, 1935 Best Picture nominee "Captain Blood." Another boat one.

#122, or #361 since I started counting, 2008's "Wanted." Let's see if I was right not to bother with this when it came out.

#123, or #362 since I started counting, 2021 Netflix trip-to-Mars-gone-wrong flick "Stowaway."

#124, or #363 since I started counting, 1935 Best Picture nominee "A Tale of Two Cities."

You know, I don't think I've ever picked up which two cities this is meant to be a tale of.

#125, or #364 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "The Story of Louis Pasteur."

Topical!

#126, or #365 since I started counting, 1980 motion picture "The Blues Brothers," directed by John Landis before he killed three people, but also Spielberg is apparently in it.

#127, or #366 since I started counting, I turned off the lights, sat down in front of the TV, and watched 2021 motion picture "The Mitchells vs the Machines."

Hey!

That ruled!

#128, or #367 since I started counting, 1984 gangster movie "The Cotton Club."

#129, or #368 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "The Great Ziegfeld," which is a 3-hour long musical.

#130, or #369 since I started watching, 1936 Best Picture nominee "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town," in which Gary Cooper plays a small-town lad who moves to the big city after he gets a massive inheritance from a family member who dies so early in the film he's in the ground before I hit send on this post.

#131, or #370 since I started counting, let's see what Adam Sandler does to the charming source material, it's 2002 motion picture "Mr. Deeds."

#132, or #371 since I started counting, it's 2001's "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring."

look,,,

#133, or #372 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "San Francisco," which has Clark Gable and Jeanette MacDonald, and is a musical about the.... 1906 San Francisco earthquake?

#134, or #373 since I started counting, I don't know why I hadn't seen this yet, it's 2014's "Paddington."

I'm 20 minutes in, and it's /magical/.

#135, or #374 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "Anthony Adverse."

#136, or #375 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "Romeo and Juliet."

#138, or #377 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "Libeled Lady."

#139, or #378 since I started counting, 1936 Best Picture nominee "Three Smart Girls," which I understand is to "The Parent Trap" as "Dodsworth" was to "Marriage Story."

#140, or #379 since I started counting, next on the Cage list, 1984's "Birdy," which I think is about Cage and his buddy dealing with PTSD from Vietnam?

#141, or #380 since I started counting, a rough cut of the Liam Neeson Netflix thriller "The Ice Road" that's not out until next month, because sometimes you watch shit just because somebody involved in production forgot to password-protect their Vimeo upload.

#142, or #381 since I started counting, 2021 Netflix thriller "The Woman in the Window," because sure, I'll watch Amy Adams be nervous for an hour and a half.

#143, or #382 since I started counting, 1985's "The Goonies."

I have no idea what this one's about but I feel like it's one people have Strong Opinions about?

#144, or #383 since I started counting, 2021's "Those Who Wish Me Dead," because I just grabbed some random new releases.

#145, or #384 since I started counting, 1985 Spielberg drama "The Colour Purple," which I'm pretty sure is about racism, has Whoopi Goldberg in it, and was nominated for Best Picture, but I'm in 1937 with those, so, you know.

#146, or #385 since I started counting, 1986's "The Boy in Blue," which I think is about Nic Cage as a real 19th century rower? Rowsman. Row-boater. You know, fellows with the paddles, little boat under the arse.

#147, or #386 since I started counting, next for Cage is 1986's "Peggy Sue Got Married."

#148, or #387 since I started counting, 2003's "The Haunted Mansion," because sometimes you gotta check if the thing you remember enjoying as a kid is actually as bad as people say.

#149, or #388 since I started counting, 2020's "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga," which I guess I should have watched this weekend.

#150, or #389 since I started counting, Zack Snyder's "Army of the Dead."

#151, or #390 since I started counting, 1937 Best Picture nominee "The Good Earth," which, let's just get this over with.

beepboop.one/@Alexis/106308504

#152, or #391 since I started counting, 2019's "Little Monsters," because I guess it's zombie season.

#153, or #392 since I started counting, 1937 Best Picture nominee "Lost Horizon," a fantasy drama (uh oh) directed by Frank Capra (good sign).

This opens with a note that the restoration is missing seven minutes of footage that they've reconstructed with stills and photographs.

#154, or #393 since I started counting, 1937 Best Picture nominee "A Star is Born" which I assume stars the First Gaga and her sidekick, Brad.

#155, or #394 since I started counting, 1987 Cage picture "Raising Arizona." Some real Choices being made right away on this one.

#156, or #395 since I started counting, 2021's "Bo Burnham: Inside."

I liked the bit where it was very raw.

Five stars.

#158, or #397 since I started counting, 2001's "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" because apparently we're supposed to stop pretending we've seen it.

twitter.com/Category_Fury/stat

Who amongst us doesn't hate when a computer virus walks up to their computer and sucks out all that binary code they've been working on.

Genuinely think I could pull off pretending I've seen this.

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

Of course, today, lasers that can transport physical objects into cyberspace are commonplace.

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

PROGRAMMER: "They have to play through all the levels [of the computer game they got lasered into] to get out!"

GUARD: "You're kidding me!"

SCIENTIST, dramatically: "I wish he was."

i mean that's how this works, man, we all know this

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

the dramatic stakes are higher re: will Scooby get his Scooby Snacks out of the computer than they are re: will they stop the sentient computer virus that can enter meat space at will

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

"It could be /anyone/."
"Even someone in this /very room/."

*looks at the mad scientist*
*looks at the camera*

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

"Surprise!"
"The virus!"

relatable content

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

the Cyber-Gang being based on slightly older character designs is a fun gag, but also, woof, you really feel the extent to which the formula for this 1h13m motion picture is based on 22m cartoons.

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

"Hey! We have a way to beat the virus now!"

knew it

magnets in the vaccine

#159, or #398 since I started counting, 1987 Spielberg flick "Empire of the Sun," which I'm pretty sure: is about Japan in WW2?

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

guess Batman's always had parent issues

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

hard subject to make light cracks about, this one

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

it's weird that Ben Stiller isn't the same age as Christian Bale

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

oh, the American who shoots Christian Bale's friend is Paul McGann

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

way too long, but good

β˜€οΈ "Empire of the Sun" (1987) 

so relentlessly about the death of innocence that at one point Christian Bale literally tries to give his innocence CPR

#160, or #399 since I started counting, it's definitively not coming to the cinema here, let's watch Emma Stone's mom get bullied to death by dogs, in 2021's "Cruella."

re: :mario_coin:​ "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@Alexis no matter how you feel about this movie, I'm so happy this is what you're watching today

re: :mario_coin:​ "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@The_T It was this or Scooby-Doo and the Cyber-Chase.

re: :mario_coin: "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@Alexis they really did a good job predicting 2017.

re: :mario_coin: "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@The_T this movie looks like what early hashtag-resistance twitter felt like

re: :mario_coin: "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@Alexis a dystopian future filled with half-done gaming references...

yeah, sounds about right

re: :mario_coin: "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@Alexis yes and yes

re: :mario_coin: "Super Mario Bros." (1993) 

@The_T I can't tell what reaction I'm having about this.

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@Alexis don't you love living in the future

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@meena the number 9 bus to school goes through PokΓ©mon Yellow, of course I love the future

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@Alexis i understood some of those words!

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@Alexis wasn't that a Deep Space 9 episode?

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@naga @Alexis TNG? If it's Holodeck horrors, It's gotta be TNG.

:scoobydoo: "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase" (2001) 

@trini @Alexis I'm sure there was, but this is the one I had in mind: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Move_Alo
