#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.

#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."

#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.

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
