#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?

#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."

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."

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

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

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

#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.

#166, or #405 since I started counting, 1989's πŸ‘š "Never on Tuesday," which has a 30-second cameo from Cage.

#167, or #406 since I started counting, 2002's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers."

Follow

#168, or #407 since I started counting, 1989 Italian-made Cage picture "Tempo di uccidere" or "Time to Kill."

Very much one of those you'll only ever watch if you're doing the whole Cage filmography, I'm sure.

Β· Β· 2 Β· 0 Β· 0

it's the English version, but the only subtitles I could find are translated from the Italian dub

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989) 

you know what, I'll grant you, Cage is somehow more believable as an Italian army lieutenant called Enrico Silvestri than he was as a New York literary agent.

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989), reference to gross and upsetting sexual fictional content 

well I'm glad I scrolled through the letterboxd reviews just in time to get some warning for the, uhhh, pretty explicit rape scene

flipping heck

put me right off my coffee

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989), reference to gross and upsetting sexual fictional content 

oh no now she's sad he's leaving

maybe I should go for a walk during this instead of after this

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989) 

oh this can all fuck right off

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989) 

i never turn off or walk out of a movie but that doesn't mean i gotta pay attention

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989) 

the emoji i picked based on the poster is also my face right now

😐 "Time to Kill" (1989) 

this /is/ a bit like Vampire's Kiss if instead of vampirism he has leprosy

you can imagine that doesn't bring quite the same manic energy to events depicted

#169, or #408 since I started counting, 1989 Spielberg picture "Always."

*looks at Spielberg before this and after this* This is gonna be him at his schmaltziest, surely.

I bet flying a plane feels cool as fuck and I definitely shouldn't be allowed to do it.

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

Half an hour in and the guy whose death is the premise ain't even fuckin' dead yet.

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

too old for this shit, gonna retire to a flight school after one final fire-fighter pilot mission, a tearful but excited-that-it's-the-last-time goodbye, the "I love you!!" she doesn't hear, it's like a TV Tropes salute to fire fighter pilots

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

"My engine is on fire!"

firefighter extinguish thyself

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

if I were a firefighter I would simply fight the fire instead of losing to it but that's just me

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

boom

rip in pieces

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

i mean if anyone can do schmaltzy it's Spielberg but there's definitely such a thing as too schmaltzy and this is where that particular well overflows

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

"I'm not ready to say goodbye."

i mean, 26 minutes of movie left

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

this is so desperate to make me cry that it's not gonna manage it

#170, or #409 since I started counting, 1990 David Lynch picture "Wild at Heart."

Genuinely no idea what this is about, but it's got Cage, Dern, Dafoe, in it, so let's go.

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

"This is a snakeskin jacket, and for me it's a symbol of my individuality and my belief in personal freedom."

just saying your thematic notes out loud is the new shit talking

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

more like weird at heart

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

what the fuck do I even say about this

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

was Cage always wearing that ridiculous fake nose or is it just here for this final scene

and why

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

terrific but totally ridiculous in the bad way

#171, or #410 since I started counting, 2000's "102 Dalmatians," because why not.

that's a, uhhhhhhh, very 2000 theme tune

couldn't make this today, the reserve of people willing to rap the words "digga digga dog" is at an all-time low

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

"Brush up your Swedish, Dr Pavlov. This could be your Nobel Prize!"

i'm pretty sure they don't make you learn Swedish before you get to accept the Nobel Prize

or give out Nobel Prizes for curing people of dog-murder brain disease, frankly

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

Ioan Gruffudd does teeth-based tug-of-war with a bulldog while a parrot that thinks it's a dog provides live commentary

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

now /this/ is a movie about becoming the Joker

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

Gerard Depardieu would-a been a wonderfully camp Kraven the Hunter in a mid-90s Spider-Man movie

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

the new design she's willing to skin all these dogs for isn't even half as good as anything in "Cruella," tbh

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

"There's got to be a way out of here."

third time somebody's been captured only to escape immediately

you could cut this into a 1960s Doctor Who, no problem

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

well don't fall into a vat of acid and/or cake batter about it

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

What an odd thing.

#172, or #411 since I started counting, 2003's "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure," because I've only got the one of five Dalmatian movies left and apparently this one is better than you expect from straight-to-video.

"102" at least had her make a comeback after a lengthy prison stay, here Cruella's just *still in London*, it's weeks at most since "101" (1961)

the Thunderbolt story so far -- famous TV dog realises the auditions he was part of were to replace himself -- is not unlike what I imagine "Bolt" (2008) is about, but I haven't seen it

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

love a good newspaper that just prints straight-up Lorem ipsum

real newspapers should do that, people only read the headlines, anyway

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

Only "Cruella" (2021) was cowardly enough not to double down on "Cruella really, really just wants to kill puppies."

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

here she doesn't even want a coat made out of puppies, she wants the artist she's working with to make art out of puppies

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

to be fair, if I showed up to school with a canvas with a dead dog stapled to it, it's 50/50 odds I get hailed as genius

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

"Come on, we're gonna hitch a ride!"

genuinely believable to me that a bus driver wouldn't notice 101 bus-hopping puppies

βšͺ⚫ "101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure" (2003) 

oh the bus driver isn't even on the-- I don't think any of these dogs have any kind of driver's license

@Alexis why would anyone make english subtitles for a dubbed movie that is originally in english? O.o

@zatnosk I... imagine this might only be available in Italian in certain regions?

(I mean, I've had to make do with worse.)

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

@Alexis is this a Steven Spielberg movie without daddy issues?

🟦⬜🟦 "Always" (1989) 

@meena Oh, no, he's definitely transplanting the daddy issues onto almost every named dude in the movie.

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

@Alexis "It's wild... at heart"

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

@kurt Or, if I didn't like it, "It's wild... at fart."

πŸ’— "Wild at Heart" (1990) 

@Alexis At least it's not wild at shart. Thins can always be worse.

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

@Alexis said the joker to the theif

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

@zens she does talk to herself a lot

βšͺ ⚫ "102 Dalmatians" (2000) 

@Alexis there’s too much confusion
