Let's watch something that, surely, can't possibly be about violence putting somebody's insides somewhere they oughtn't be, #303, or #562, it's 1938 Best Picture nominee "Alexander's Ragtime Band."
#304, or #563, skipping ahead slightly on Cage's career so I can listen to a podcast about this one, it's 2011's "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance."
#305, or #564, let's see what the deal is with 2000's "Final Destination," which I assume is called that because it definitely doesn't have four sequels.
#306, or #565, it's 2003's "Final Destination 2," you know, that sequel the first one definitely doesn't have.
From darkness to darkness, leaving now to go see "Venom: Let There Be Carnage." #307, #566.
#308, or #567, let's see what this dipshit is up to, it's 1985's "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge."
I'm tired of sitting here in the dark, so I'm leaving now to go sit in the dark somewhere else, for #309, or #568, 2021's "The French Dispatch."
#310, or #569, called it, it really is about trains because there's a rollercoaster on the poster, it's 2006's "Final Destination 3."
#311, or #570, it's 2009's "The Final Destination." The definitive article, and thus clearly, the last one-- What? There's a fifth one? Fuck me.
#312, or #571, it's 2011's "Final Destination 5," the *actual* final destina-- They were working on a sixth one before the pandemic? Truly, death is eternal.
#313, or #572, there's really never a time when I'm, like, hell yeah, let's watch this 1937 French war film, but okay, it's 1937 Best Picture nominee "La Grande Illusion."
#314, or #573, no idea what this one's about, I think Kubrick developed this one and Spielberg made it, it's 2001's "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."
#315, or #574, 2010's "Stonehenge Apocalypse," whatever that's about.
#316, or #575, 2016's "Train to Busan." What're the odds it'll actually get to Busan?
#317, or #576, 2020's "The Wolf of Snow Hollow." No idea what this one's about, but the internet says it's a comedy, presumably there's snow, a werewolf, small town shenanigans.
#318, or #577, 2017's "It," aka "Clown v. Town."
#319, or #578, it's 2019's "It: Chapter Two," or "Clowntown 2: Return of the Clown to Town."
#320, or #579, spooky season lives on, because I kinda took a break in the middle and I have some horror left I was gonna watch, it's 2003's "One Missed Call."
#321, or #580, 2013's "Warm Bodies," which I think is a zombie thing, called it "hipstery," and I think it was all over Tumblr for a little bit when it came out?
Already seated for #322, or #581, 2021's greyest film, "Eternals."
Already seated for #323, or #582, 2021's "Last Night in Soho." More like Lunchtime in Soho.
Leaving now to go see #324, or #583, because it's finally playing in theatres here, 2021's "Pig."
More leftovers from spoopy season, #325, or #584, it's 2007's "Halloween," the second of three movies called just that, but this one's a reboot and not in continuity with the other two, which *are* in continuity with each other.
#326, or #585, let's see how much more unpleasant this gets, it's 2009's "Halloween II."
I did genuinely like "Army of the Dead," so #327, or #586, 2021's "Army of Thieves."
#328, or #587, 1973's "F for Fake."
Already seated for #329, or #588, 2021's "Spencer."
Do I give a single shit about Princess Diana? Not even half of one. Will I watch Kristen Stewart pretend to be her for two hours? Yes, please, absolutely.
#330, or #589, 2008's "Synechdoche, New York," whatever that's about. Misspellings, presumably.
#331, or #590, 1987's "Planes, Trains & Automobiles." No boats, tanks, or spaceships allowed.
Leaving now for #332, or #591, first movie since the start of Desert Bus, it's 2021's ██████. I don't know!
Because it's a Sneak Preview screening, where they show a movie early that's coming out give or take this week or next week.
Best guesses poll:
#333, or #592, 1988's "Midnight Run," because it came up a few times in Letterboxd reviews of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," and I figured, well, why not.
Gotta pick the List back up, it's one of the last two Christopher Nolan movies I haven't seen, #334, or #593, 2002's "Insomnia."
We Cage ever onwards, the year is 2002, it's John Woo's "Windtalkers," which I think is about WW2 Navajo code talkers, and which I reckon is probably pretty violent? #335, or #594.
#337, or #596, I think this is the first movie I was aware of as a kid that everyone seemed to be Talking About, but then the commercials seemed very scary to 11-year old me, it's 2002's "Signs."
Circles? In /my/ crops?
I don't remember what the twist in this one is supposed to be, so nobody tell me.
It can't just be "it's aliens," I feel like that's the premise.
👽 "Signs" (2002) Show more
"Some show's on every station."
Okay, I feel like crop circles, even worldwide similar ones, wouldn't get total media blackout news attention.
"How can so many people be in on it?"
*gestures at the internet* people do be like that, actually
"They are signs intended to be seen from the sky."
just viral marketing innit
Mel Gibson is really letting this bother him, maybe HE'S an alien.
"Is that him?"
that's gotta be the single most blatantly called out director cameo in history
"You heard the voices, right?"
you've heard of people seeing dead people, now get ready to see people hearing space voices
"Looks a little like our house, doesn't it."
and what's this book called, oh, The Art of 2002's Signs, funny title
twist guess: the aliens are in cahoots with the people making 2002 motion picture "Signs" and the crop circles are indeed a viral marketing campaign
but what does the water have to do with anything
the water was the aliens all along
no, this is M Night Shyamalan and Mel Gibson plays a former priest, uhhhh
the aliens are jesus?
no that's not until 2008
"Swing away, Merrill."
oh, not really a twist, huh
tremendous picture, tho
don't reckon I would-a got on with it much if I'd seen it age 11
