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."

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."

#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.

Let's fill in some Homestuck lore for myself with #246, or #505 since I started counting, 1997's "Con Air."

#247, or #506 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2020's "Druk," which in English is called "Another Round."

It's a movie about excessive alcohol consumption, which I don't typically care for, and I probably wouldn't just put it on at home without a reason? But if it's playing at the cinema...

#248, or #507 since I started counting, 1997's "Face/Off," in which Cage and Travolta... become deepfakes of each other? Something like that.

#249, or #508 since I started counting, 1997's "Amistrad," a... historical drama...?

It's a Spielberg one, he doesn't have a great hit rate with those, and I never hear anyone talk about this one.

#250! Or #509 since I started counting! Two hours and a bit from now, people can finally stop looking at me like I've just farted out a live chicken when I say I haven't seen -- 1988's "Die Hard."

Leaving in a bit to go see #251, or #510 since I started counting, 2020's "The Father."

#252, or #511, I was gonna watch all of M Night Shyamalan's movies, but I couldn't find a watchable copy of his first one, so I'm starting with his second one, 1998's "Wide Awake."

#253, or #512, let's see what Cage is up to, it's 1998's "City of Angels."

#254, or #513, it's 1998's "Following" because I guess I've seen all but three Christopher Nolan movies.

#255, or #514, it's back to the other list with 1937 Best Picture nominee, "In Old Chicago," which I think is another one about a disaster?

Leaving now to go see #256, or #515, Hugh Jackman sci-fi noir thing "Reminiscence."

#257, or #516, it's Cage time again, in 1998's "Snake Eyes."

#258, or #517, Spielberg is at it again with 3-hour long 1998 motion picture "Saving Private Ryan."

#259, or #518, kicking off M Night Shyamalan's wild 1999 with one he goes uncredited on but did contribute significantly to the script of, it's "She's All That."

I fucking hate this premise, but I think people like this movie? Cool cast, too.

If I recall correctly I described the first one as "a truly unhinged depiction of the human baby," it's #260, or #519, 2021's "The Boss Baby: Family Business."

People whose taste generally aligns with mine seem to like this one, so why not, it's #261, or #520, 2021's "Vacation Friends."

Leaving now to go see #262, or #521, 2021's second Marvel Studios picture, "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings."

#263, or #522, 2021 algorithm-generated Netflix movie "He's All That," which-- Yes, it looks insufferable, but I have to know.

#264, or #523, I should finish these before the school year starts, it's 2003's "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."

Leaving in a bit to go see #265, or #524 since I started counting, 1979's "Apocalypse Now." Or "Apocalypse in a bit," I guess.

I need to get back to these, cuz I keep saying, "well, you know, I'll get around to it eventually" about Best Picture nominated movies from the 70s and 80s when I've not even finished the 1930s.

#266, or #525, 1938's "Jezebel."

#267, or #526, 2015's "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

All I remember ever thinking about this one at the time is "what, another spy movie?" but now I also think "I can't remember if that's the guy who's a cannibal."

#268, or #527, 2021 Netflix Original "Afterlife of the Party," which definitely feels like it exists only because the Algorithm stumbled onto the title.

#269, or #528, from the director of those Batman movies people largely dislike, 1999 Cage picture "8MM," which I think is about Cage as a detective investigating the veracity of a snuff film?

#270, or #529, leaving now to go see, because you know, why not, apparently I'll go see pretty much anything if it's a classic rerelease, 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy."

me: "I should reintroduce some randomness into what I watch, let's roll some dice."

the dice: "You're watching 2013 Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson Google comedy "The Internship.""

me: "Curses."

(#271, or #530 since I started counting.)

#272, or #531 since I started counting, I'm about to get to a run of these where I've actually heard of a bunch of them, but not just yet, it's 1938 Best Picture nominee "Test Pilot," with Clark Gable, Myrna Loy, and Spencer Tracy.

#273, or #532 since I started counting, 1984's "Dune."

"The planet is Arrakis, also known as... Dune."

well you're not wondering why, are you

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

it's the Face of Boe's posh nephew

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

for this fight scene, Kyle MacLachlan and Patrick Stewart simply activated display of their hitboxes

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

as you know, Bob, there's a lot going on here

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

"I've vowed never to regret my decision."

I've Decided Not To Let It Bother Me is a powerful thought technology

Follow

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

"Where are my feelings?"

alright well where did you last see them

⏳ "Dune" (1984) 

the aesthetic here is "what if David Lynch tried to make a Star Wars but ended up making a Star Trek TOS without Kirk or Spock in it instead" and I'm kinda here for it, but it's not a good movie

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

hard to tell how much of my low reaction to this is down to
* the movie (notoriously not well liked)
* my general disinterest in this kind of sci-fi
* or that i've just had a root canal

> why watch 1984's "Dune" in the middle of the day right after a pretty heavy dental procedure

i mean obviously it's because i'm seeing 2021's "Dune" tomorrow

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@Alexis this is a movie that gets better around the 5th rewatching. it’s pretty invariably terrible those first 4 go rounds.

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@Alexis david lynch has bot yet made it past 4; he will likely die hating it

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@zens I'm typically pretty forgiving, but no, I can totally see why David Lynch specifically hates this specific movie he made.

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@Alexis there is a #releaseTheLynchCut movement.
lynch is 💯 not game

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@zens Yeah, I don't think this is salvageable.

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@Alexis some think it’s an unfilmable book. i guess we’ll find out soon

⏳ "Dune" (1984), reference to dental procedure 

@zens Literally 24 hours from now I'll already know.
