#204, or #463 since I started counting, 2015's "Queen of Earth," which I'm pretty sure is one of those where Elisabeth Moss does the Elisabeth Moss Stress thing, you know what I mean, don't pretend you don't know what I mean.

#205, or #464 since I started counting, 1993's "Red Rock West," which:
* has Cage in it.
* looks from the poster like it's a modern-day western?
* is otherwise a mystery to me.

Need to not drown in the news for a bit, so I'm gonna watch today's "Fear Street, Part Two: 1978" on the TV. (#206, or #464.)

#207, or #465 since I started counting, 1937 Best Picture nominated RKO feature "Stage Door."

I was gonna do "Schindler's List" for S but that's not a mid-afternoon movie, is it.

#208, or #466 since I started counting, 2021's "The Tomorrow War," which looks Extremely Bad.

What I had lined up is about bullying and, nah, movie, read the room, so instead, #209, or #466 since I started counting, 2009's "Up in the Air," which I've seen before, but I love an airport movie.

#210, or #469 since I started counting, 1932's "Vampyr." πŸ§›β€β™€οΈ

#211, or #470 since I started counting, 2021's "Werewolves Within," which opens with a bit of text presented like it's some intense Bible shit but it's a quote from flipping Fred Rogers.

#212, or #471 since I started counting, 2002's "xXx," which, lemme tell ya, difficult to do a search for on pornography-riddled torrent sites. (But it was on Netflix, so.)

Leaving in a bit to go see #213, or #472 since I started counting, 2021's "Space Jam: A New Legacy," or, just Space Jam again but for the Peak Synergy age.

#215, or #474 since I started counting, 2005's "Zathura," which I understand to be Jumanji's space sibling.

#216, or #475 since I started counting, today's "Fear Street, Part 3: 1666."

let's bury this witch's hand

#217 or #476 since I started counting, 1992's "Batman Returns."

Had no idea he was away.

#218, or #477 since I started counting, 1995's "Batman Forever."

Quite a step up from just returning.

#219, or #478 since I started counting, 1997's "Batman and Robin."

It'll be... ice to have finally seen all of... freeze.

#220, or #479 since I started counting, 2004's "Catwoman," because then I think I'm complete for modern live-action Batman or Batman-adjacent movies?

#221, or #480 since I started counting, 2005's "Elektra."

Probably should-a rewatched "Daredevil" first, but c'est la vie.

#222, or #481 since I started counting, I've definitely seen the first one but I don't remember it at all, leaving now to go see 2021's "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard."

#223, or #482 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2021's "Old."

Never seen any M. Night Shyamalan before.

#224, or #483 since I started counting, it's back to Cage with 1993's "Deadfall," which apparently has a pretty wild Cage performance. (And that's sayin' something.)

#225, or #484 since I started counting, 1937 Best Picture nominee, "The Awful Truth," which is definitely either a romcom or about a miserable divorce.

#226, or #485 since I started counting, 2009's "Year One," because you can't tell me there's a movie where Jack Black and Michael Cera play cavemen and not expect me to call your bluff.

#227, or #486 since I started counting, I got arrested and banned from IKEA for accidental shoplifting and then went to see 2021's "Jungle Cruise," which I enjoyed significantly more than the other thing.

#228, or #487 since I started counting, leaving now to go see "Luizenmoeder: De film," because I've watched and liked exactly two Dutch sitcoms this millennium, so, you know, one does a movie, I go see the movie.

#229, or #488 since I started counting, 1989's "Turner & Hooch."

#230, or #489 since I started counting, let's pick up where we left of with Mr Cage with 1994's "Guarding Tess," in which I understand Mr Cage plays a Secret Service agent tasked with protecting the American First Lady, who he finds exasperating.

#231, or #490 since I started counting, I watched 2021 HBO documentary "Woodstock '99: Peace, Love, and Rage."

the 90s, man. never again.

#232, or #491 since I started counting, 1993's "Schindler's List."

#233, or #492 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2021's "Harley Quinn 3: This One Has Peter Capaldi and King Shark In It," or, "The Suicide Squad."

#234, or #493 since I started counting, we all made fun of it when Disney+ first went live but I never actually went and saw it, it's 1967's "The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin," which-- Hm, 1967, this is probably racist.

But what I was gonna watch didn't download, so!

#235, or #494 since I started counting, it's Cage, in 1994's "It Could Happen To You."

Not got the faintest fart's whiff what it's about.

#236, or #495 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2021's "The Green Knight."

#237, or #496 since I started counting, Cage, Jon Lovitz, and Dana Carvey are three (possibly bumbling) small-time criminals who just can't catch a break, in 1994's "Trapped in Paradise."

#238, or #497 since I started counting, Cage in 1995's "Kiss of Death." This could be about literally anything.

#239, or #498 since I started counting, Cage in 1995's "Leaving Las Vegas," which looks: Like a bummer.

#240, or #499 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2021's "Free Guy."

#500 since I started counting, or #241 this year, 2009's "(500) Days of Summer," because number.

Not entirely sure what it's about, but it looks like one of those romcoms certain kinds of people made their whole thing for a while.

It's Friday the 13th! And so is movie!

#242, or #501 since I started counting, 1980's "Friday the 13th."

I think this is the summer camp one? I'm pretty sure it's the summer camp one.


It's still Friday the 13th! And so is movie?

#243, or #502 since I started counting, 1981's "Friday the 13th Part 2," also known as "Saturday the 14th."

Thorough dream sequence recap here, might as well not have watched the first one. Previously on a few hours ago.

You know, if I were the sole survivor of getting Fridaythethirteenth'd, I would simply not get Saturdaythefourteenth'd.

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

no worse place to find a head than a fridge

you trust a fridge

...well, a bed, also not great

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

*considers the number of instalments in this franchise* You do have to wonder how many killing sprees gotta happen around a lake before people stop trying to do summer camp at it.

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

I do feel like the Voorhees family has a somewhat reasonable grievance, but also, maybe don't do a bunch of serial killing about it.

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

the guy who insisted he was a messenger from god in the first one gets, uhhh, returned to sender

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

"You're too close!"

what's the appropriate distance to keep from the murder camp

in, like, kilometres

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

the teens in this one are a lot more annoying movie teens than the original teens

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

turns out the answer to me wondering if Murder-Man had a drivers' licence and such was, yes, Murder-Man is just a regular ol' adult

Murder-Man 2: This Time It's Presumably Jason probably don't got a drivers' license tho

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

the bag over his head just kinda makes him look like he's cosplaying a cartoon ghost but doesn't wanna commit to the full sheet

"You've done your job well, Jason, mommy is pleased."

extremely strong gambit

muffin the dog WILL kill again

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

oh good jesus

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

i'm not falling for this trick a third time

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

first one was better

but that's always the way, innit

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

Interesting to discover how much of what I think of as "Friday the 13th" is actually from the second one or even the third one, which I suppose is how it retroactively justifies its existence.

It continues to be Friday the 13th! And so does movie!

#244, or #503 since I started counting, straight on to 1982's "Friday the 13th Part III," also known as "Sunday the 15th."

Ah, yes, the Iron Man-to-Iron Man 2 style of sequel, new folks literally watching the end of the last movie on TV.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

The first bit was the night of the 13th, then the 14th, but then it was night again so /now/ it's Sunday the 15th.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

I already didn't really care about the teens from the second one but chips ahoy do I not care about anyone in this one.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

A lotta fake-outs in this one. No good.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

oof, ow, right down the middle

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

Say! These folks aren't even trying to run a summer camp! I now disagree with the Voorhees family.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

I was never on board with the serial killin' but Jason's not even got a point, now, he just broadly and indiscriminately kills randy teens and anyone vaguely in the randy vicinity.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

For all that I don't care for this one that much, the hockey mask /is/ instantly very clearly a thing that works.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

Did not fall for the last jump scare this time.

#245, or #504 since I started counting, 1996's "The Rock," which does not have The Rock in it, but does have The Cage in it.

I don't really have much of an image of society's relationship to Michael Bay pre-Transformers, or what his pre-Transformers movies are like.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

Gravestone in the Law & Order font.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

I feel like taking a bunch of hostages on an Alcatraz tour is a plan that should fall very easily apart but I've no idea where or how.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

oh jeez, the "the Founding Fathers were considered traitors at the time, too" schtick

don't even get me started

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

So Sean Connery's character here really is just "what if James Bond was in prison for so long that he doubled down on doubling down on his whole schtick."

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

I was gonna say "Evil James Bond" but let's not interrogate why I didn't.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

This San Francisco car chase might be great fun if the camera operator wasn't having a flipping seizure.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

A lot of very silly action movie nonsense goin' on but hard to find something to say. It's very American in a way I wasn't quite in the mood for.

:cage: "The Rock" (1996) 

I get why people like this one, but god, it's just very... I try not to reduce things to this point, but I suppose my frustrations can reasonably be summed up with "it's just too Michael Bay."

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

@Alexis Ooh, Saturday the 14th (1981) doesn't actually mean Saturday the 14th (1981)

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

@kurt my commitment to this bit will outlive my frustration that everything up to Wednesday the 18th is already a thing, but dangit

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

@Alexis "Despite the implications of the film's title, it is a spoof of classic horror movies from the 1930s and '40s, and not a parody of the Friday the 13th series or slasher films of that type from the '80s"

Not even worth it!

πŸ”ͺ "Saturday the 14th" (1981) 

@kurt Yeah, just a cheap cash-grab title! I can reclaim it!

@The_T Yeah, that's no good! ...But I also wanna keep the joke going for subsequent instalments, so I'm just gonna... assume my initial post where I clearly say it's Friday the 13th Part 2 is clear enough for anyone who cares.

@Alexis so wait, is Part 3 taking place on the 14th? this is awkward

@Alexis me, watching these movies: completely doesn't care about the victims or the horror, is more concerned with the continuity

it's just like me watching anything else

@The_T You need an annotated calendar, and /then/ you can focus on the movie.

@The_T Yeah, in actual fact it's

"Friday the 13th"
"Friday the 13th Again, But Five Years Later"
"Saturday the 14th."

heck knows where the rest of the sequels go

@Alexis I feel like one of them has to be set on Christmas. There's always one on Christmas.

@The_T Christmas famously does not occur on the 13th, and yet I refuse to believe that would stop this franchise.

@Alexis Saturday the 14th doesn't occur on the 13th either!!!!

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

@Alexis Feature creep.

πŸ”ͺ "Sunday the 15th" (1982) 

@kurt In the tenth one, when he goes to space, that's future creep.
