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.

Leaving in a bit for #274, or #533 since I started counting, I reserved for this one at a moment when I did not remember I had an 8.50am dentist appointment today, 2021 historical picture "Eiffel."

Leaving in a bit for #275, or #534 since I started counting, 2021's "Dune."

In the category of, people are talking about it, Alex is easily people-pressured, even though Alex is not a horror person much, #276, or #535, 2021's "Malignant."

M Night Shyamalan's wild 1999 continues with a hard pivot from uncredited rewrites on a teen romcom to #278, or #537, "The Sixth Sense."

#279, or #538, we nineteen-ninety-nine ever onwards, it's 1999's "The Matrix."

#280, or #539, 1999's "Bringing Out the Dead."

I'm not a big Scorsese person -- none of what I've seen I've found particularly compelling, but I also haven't seen the big ones -- but it'll be interesting to see how he uses Cage.

#281, or #539, M Night Shyamalan's 1999 takes one last U-turn, because he's one of two credited writers on this one, it's 1999's "Stuart Little."

#282, or #541, leaving the last millennium behind, it's 2000's "Gone in Sixty Seconds," which I understand is about Cage having to steal 50 cars in one night to save his brother's life. Terrific.

#283, or #542, "Chris Pratt as Mario" and "RTD is back" have both happened since the last time I watched a movie, so let's do another emotional rollercoaster, it's 1997 robot anime recap movie "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Death."

#284, or #543, it's 2000's "Unbreakable."

Not sure what this one's about, I think it's M Night's comic book-y one? Presumably not ghosts again.

#285, or #544, it's 1997's "The End of Evangelion," which I reckon probably has more of the robot fights the preview for episode 25 promised, but which I reckon is probably also still Pretty Fucked Up.

You know how the vast majority of the Best Picture nominees are
movies global culture has seemingly totally forgotten about, and then every now and then there's one people still watch, like, and talk about?

#286, or #545, it's 1938's "The Adventures of Robin Hood."

I'm pretty sure the first time I booked a ticket for this one was before I was even counting movies. End of an odd, odd era, in a way.

Leaving now to go see #287, or #546, 2021's "No Time to Die."

#288, or #547, Cage's career barrels ever forwards, it's 2000's "The Family Man," which I don't know anything about.

It's October, so I've just hit play on the first horror movie on Netflix that didn't look like like a sack of shit with a turd on top, it's #289, or #548, 2019's "Escape Room."

Might as well plow on, #290, or #549, it's 2021's "Escape Room: Tournament of Champions."

#291, or #550, it's 2019's "Doctor Sleep," because sure, I'll watch Ewan McGregor pretend to be the kid from "The Shining," why not.

I've put on Netflix's "Attack of the Hollywood ClichΓ©s!", which I've seen people call "a YouTube video," when actually, it's "I love the 90s"-style background noise TV at best. But it's an hour long one-off, so I'm counting it as a movie! #292, or #551.

#293, or #552, let's find out what Cage gets up to in whatever the fuck 2001's "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" is about.

I hold this one up as the ur-horror movie I so obviously won't enjoy that there's no point watching it, it's time to watch 294, or #553, 2004's "Saw."

#295, or #554, Halloween is a month-long event online, so it's time for 1981's "Halloween II."

#296, or #555, again I must insist none of you tell the me from more than a few years ago about this, it's 2005's "Saw II."

#297, or #556, 2002's "Spider-Man." Ages since I've seen these.

Leaving now to go see #298, or #557, the movie sequel to the Dutch gay romcom sitcom of the same title, "Anne+."


There's a new one out this week, and my understanding is if I've seen the 1978 one (I have) and this one, I'm caught up, because these things get very silly with the alternative continuities, #299, or #558, 2018's "Halloween."

I like to see the aesthetic progression of these things, but, you know, I also like to see movies in the cinema.

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"I borrowed something from a friend at the attorney general's office, Michael."

oh fuck off

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"Say something. Say something, Michael! SAY SOMETHING!"

this podcast man should not have been allowed anywhere near this facility

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"We like to reexamine incidents with an unbiased lens."

ma'am your cohost just yelled at a serial killer

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"I think he might speak with you."

these podcasters are some of the shittest fictional journalists i've ever seen and J Jonah Jameson once had robots made to go kill Spider-Man

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

you know what, this makes total sense to me as where Laurie ends up 40 years after the original

paranoid, hard to find, hard to get to, ready to go

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"I saw him. The Shape."

I hate that name, but also, I get it, you do wanna call him *something* besides "Mike."

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

I feel like a transfer should just be totally out of the question for a Michael Myers-tier serial killer. You put him that dude in one place and that's where that dude stays.

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

just enough glimpses of Michael Myer's face that you get that he looks like the old dude behind the laptop from the meme

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

guess Michael Myers is just more of an old media kinda guy

Unfathomable to me that this town celebrates Halloween.

"Oh, shit!"

oh shit

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"What the hell are you doing here?"

I feel like if Laurie Strode is sneaking around Haddonfield with a gun you can be pretty sure why she's there

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"Oh, you're the new Loomis."

same type of guy, really

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

"So, this is what it feels like."

"I have to finish this," says woman in part one of a trilogy.

πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

well that sure ends with exactly enough space for a sequel to come out this week

#300, or #559, this one's not in any continuity but its own, it's 1982's "Halloween III: Season of the Witch."

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

why is she yelling about finding a dead body, she's in a hospital and she's a nurse

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

this is already ridiculous on sunday the 24th, this better kick the fuck off on the 31st

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

it occurs to me that I have no idea why this is called "Season of the Witch."

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

"And... happy Halloween."

and good murder to all of you at home

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

they said tv was gonna rot your brain or give you square eyes, not turn your head into snakes

So that just ends with probably hundreds of thousands of kids dead, huh.

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

wonderfully weird, absolutely tremendous nonsense


(or 560)

Never let anyone say I make good decisions.

It's 2014's "300: Rise of an Empire."

i'm not pausing this while i make coffee on the other side of the room

re: πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

@Alexis god, it must be a nightmare trying to find a guest host to cover that event for the last episode

re: πŸŽƒ "Halloween" (2018) 

@The_T Might be an indie podcast, no dedicated editor, just getting onto the feed to upload it might be, uhh, murder.

@Alexis I've always loved how like... "alternate continuities" are thought of as some big nerd/comics culture thing, but like... "alternate continuities" exist for tons of films where the creators just want to forget or ignore things from the films they didn't like

@The_T Yeah, these are relatively mainstream, and nobody ever seems that confused. Thinking of Terminator, too. Godzilla movies.

Heck, James Bond.

Comics are just more explicit about it.

@Alexis but also James Bond would be so much better if the Bonds interacted with each other

@Alexis James Bond works for the government, he doesn't believe in charity

@Alexis Although who can forget the time James Bond crossed over with EastEnders

@The_T Oh, did you see all the British soaps are crossing over in November? Never been more tempted.

@Alexis I'ma be real with you EastEnders is the only British soap opera I've even heard of, and even then I don't actually know anything more about it

@Alexis good to see they're taking the step of integrating those shows into the Doctor Who universe

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

@Alexis hallowine

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

@Alexis spooky margarine

πŸ“Ί πŸŽƒ "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) 

@Alexis Because shamroks are from Ireland and Stonehenge is in Ireland. Duh.

@Alexis legit wasn't sure if this was part of a movie thread or something that is happening in the news
