#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.

"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

⏳ "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

⏳ "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 πŸ’― not game


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

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

@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.
