#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.

#157, or #396 since I started counting, an extended 124-minute cut of 1993's "Super Mario Bros." I have not seen the original cut.

#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.

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

Follow

#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."

Β· Β· 3 Β· 0 Β· 0

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

"It was my fault."

...so what's the. with the dogs. it's not even. tired forehead grasp.

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

Terrific backwards handwriting, considering she's so drunk she single-handedly invents punk.

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

"Kid's a snowflake."

ah yes

that word people used that way in the early 1970s

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

the story, the motivations, etc., kind of a mess, shallow stuff, the aesthetic, yum, delicious, could be four hours long

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

"They really would make fabulous coats."
"The /dogs/?"

dogs can't sew, dummy

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

rip in fur. 45 minutes of credits.

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

look i was always gonna think this ruled

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

but also, it's a 70s!Devil Wears Prada-flavoured con/heist movie, what kinda square doesn't think this rules

Once again, I return!

Leaving now for the actual cinema for #161, or #400 since I started counting, 2020's highest-grossing film, which I've just read 53 chapters of manga to be caught up on, "Demon Slayer: Infinity Train."

* Trailer for Nobody. Seen it.
* Chaos Walking. Seen it.
* F9. When is that even coming out? MAGNETS!

i think i broke new releases for myself

big emotions delivered through dream sequences and train fights (train fights!) what more could you want

πŸ‘Ή "Demon Slayer: Infinity Train" (2020) 

tanjiro's dream: everything i do is about honouring my family

zenitsu's dream: all i want is a normal life with a cute girl

inosuke's dream: i'm the goddamn main character here and the other three idiots are my pokemon

#162, or #401 since I started counting, 1987 Cage/Cher picture, "Moonstruck."

πŸŒ• ✊ "Moonstruck" (1987) 

I feel like Ronny probably tells this story of how he lost his hand, his fiancΓ©e, and his brother a lot.

πŸŒ• ✊ "Moonstruck" (1987) 

this is very pleasant

I Cage ever onwards, with 1988's "Vampire's Kiss." #163, or #402 since I started counting.

Some real Acting Choices happening from Phase Two Cage here.

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

I was gonna say "I know, Superman Lives and all, but Cage would-a made an okay Batman" and then a bat flew in through his open window.

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

nicolas what is that accent

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

Phase Two Cage thinks he's a guy who can do voices.

Cage is not a guy who can do voices.

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

this is so weird, he's so weird

what an actor

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

He's a vampire! He's a vampire! He's a vampire!!

#164, or #403 since I started counting, 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade."

Seen it before, obviously, but I don't remember a jot about it. (This is the one where he goes out to find Jesus' favourite coffee mug.)

circus train is a good platform for gags.

hey remember when Roger Moore dressed like a clown in that one Bond movie

more movies should do silly shit like that.

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

weird to have an origin story for his outfit

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

I do agree the things Indy goes after should generally be in a museum, but would I blow up a boat about it? I wouldn't blow up a boat about most things.

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989)

Harrison Ford: *actually doing a Scottish accent*

the only reason I don't have a rotating fireplace or a chair-activated stairwell in my apartment is I don't have a fireplace or a stairwell

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

glad the baddies are Nazis again in this one, no weird racist caricatures, just Nazis, ripe for punching

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

"I believe in the Grail, not the swastika!"

i mean

you can still just not be a goddamn nazi

the wilhelm scream has far surpassed "fun audio easter egg" and is now just "thing that I find distracting and takes me out of the movie"

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

"Not that Jones, the other Jones!"

multi-Jones story

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

I feel like this has a reputation of, people don't like it? But who cares, it's good fun.

#165, or #404 since I started counting, 1994's "Clifford," -- not the dog -- because you can't tell me there's a movie where then-40-year old Martin Short played a 10-year old and expect me to just move on.

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

@Alexis RELEASE THE SNYDER CUT!

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

@kurt I want to watch that mom drop down the cliff in glorious, violent slow-motion.

βšͺ ⚫ "Cruella" (2021) 

@kurt She doesn't even kill any dogs in this!

@Alexis Emma Stone's her own mother? Now there's a movie I'd like to see.

@kurt It starts in 1963 or '64 or thereabouts, Dr Who could easily pick her up.

πŸ§› "Vampire's Kiss" (1988) 

@Alexis it's such a bizarre movie

i need to watch it sometime again

@The_T on the other side it says "don't talk to me before i've returned from the dead"

@Alexis that's his other mug, but it has a zombie from plants vs zombies on it and Jesus thinks licensed merchandise is a little cliche

@The_T he'll drink from it if the rest are in the dishwasher, but he'd never bring it out for guests

re: 🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

@Alexis@beepboop.one ponders have you seen the That Mitchell And Webb Look sketch in which a villain brings a contractor to their hideout to ask about a rotating fireplace & other additions?

re: 🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

@LilFluff I haven't, but would not say no to a link.

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

@Alexis The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles goes into more detail, Season 1 is all about the hat, season 2 about his coat, Season 3 about his shoes, Season 4 about his scarf (new creative team) and Season 5 is about his whip.

🀑 "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" (1989) 

@kurt I can't tell if this is real or a Goof.
