Leaving in a bit to go see #79, or #729, 2022's "The Batman."

#80, or #730, we Cage ever onwards, 2018's "Mandy."

No idea what it's about, but I know it gets held up as Good Cage.

#81, or #731, we Cage ever onwards, 2018's "211."

This looks like some cop shit, so, you know, not expecting high engagement on this one.

#82, or #732, we Cage ever onwards, because I think he voices Superman in this one, it's 2018's "Teen Titans Go! To The Movies."

#83, or #733, we continue to Cage ever onwards, it's 2018's "Between Worlds."

#84, or #734, the last Shyamalan I haven't seen, 2019's "Glass."

#85, or #735, we Cage onwards and onwards, it's 2019's "Running with the Devil."

Absolutely no way this doesn't suck absolute eggs.

#86, or #736, it's another one that looks fucking terrible, but what are you gonna do about it, we Cage ever onwards, 2019's "Kill Chain."

#87, or #737, leaving now for a screening of 1991's "Thelma & Louisa."

#88, or #738, we Cage onwards... four more times, 2019's "Grand Isle."

#89, or #739, we Cage ever onwards, three to go, it's 2020's "Jiu Jitsu."

#90, or #740, we Cage ever onwards, and yet backwards, it's 2020's "The Croods: A New Age."

If I recall correctly, I called the first one "a perfectly fine movie for 9-year olds."

Leaving in a bit to go see #91, #741, 2022's "Uncharted."

After a dark and endless night, we Cage ever onwards into a bright dawn for: The Final Cage.

#92, #742, 2021's "Prisoners of the Ghostland."

#93, or #743, 1939 Best Picture nominee "The Citadel."

Which, if I recall correctly, is about a Scottish doctor moving to Wales, and then to London? Maybe the Irish get involved somewhere.

#94, or #744, 1939 Best Picture nominee "Stagecoach."

I assume that's a western, so presumably it's cool but racist. (They might not have invented cool yet.)

#95, or #745, I watched 2017 legal documentary "Long Shot" because I got to the episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" that factors into it. Absolutely wild.

#96, or #746, I don't know if this is actually spoopy or just violence in a house, 2019's "Ready or Not."

#97, or #747, 1939 Best Picture nominee "Wuthering Heights."

This is the classic of English-language literature everyone I've ever seen talk about fucking hates, I think.

#98, or #748, I continue to ignore discourse about current films by simply hiding in a different century altogether, it's 1939 Best Picture nominee "Love Affair."

#100, or #750, 1920 German silent film "Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari," or, "The Cabinet of Dr Caligari."

You know, not a hard translation, that title.

#101, or #751, from the "I download random movies sometimes without really looking what they're about" pile, 1985's "Lost in America."

Let's watch another one, (incidentally putting me on an average of exactly one (1) movie a day since the official start of the pandemic in my country,) #103, or #753, 2022's "The Adam Project."

Leaving now to go see #104, or #754, 2021's "Licorice Pizza."

About to head out to go see-- Well, I don't know yet, it's a Sneak Preview screening, but it's probably 2022's "Moonfall"? #105, or #755.

#106, or #756, 2022's "Windfall," because sometimes you just hit play on a random new release on Netflix.

#107, or #757, 1986's "¡Three Amigos!", because they-- because they watch it in 2022's "Windfall" and I thought, hey, I could go for a Steve Martin/Martin Short comedy, good idea.

#108, or #758, 1987's "Ishtar," another one about people getting Tropic Thunder'd, apparently known as one of the worst movies ever made, because @thiskurt brought it up.

#109, or #759, 2016's "Swiss Army Man," which is the one about Paul Dano using Daniel Radcliffe's farting dead body as a boat and such. (I've seen it before.)

#110, or #760, 1939 Best Picture nominee "Dark Victory."

No idea what it's about, I think Ronald Reagan might be in it?

#111, or #761, I don't know what the right relationship between this movie and me eating some crisps is, but I've got some, anyway, it's 1939 Best Picture nominee "Goodbye, Mr Chips."

#112, or #762, 2021's "Boiling Point," which I understand to be a one-shot thriller set in a restaurant kitchen? That sounds good, yeah, I'll watch that.

Leaving now to go see #113, or #763, 2022's "Sonic the Hedgehog 2." I'm running slightly late, though, so I guess I, too, gotta go fast.

#114, or #764, at this point I think I've seen more deconstructions and reconstructions of the slasher genre than I have actual slashers, 2015's "The Final Girls."

#115, or #765, 1939 Best Picture nominee "The Wizard of Oz."

#116, or #766, this seems like a good one for while I'm still slumped over from hay fever, 2022's "Turning Red."

#117, or #767, 1939 Best Picture nominee "Mr Smith Goes to Washington."

I understand this had some substantial real-world impact, and Frank Capra is generally pretty good, but does a political drama from 1939 hold up, like, at all?

Follow

#118, or #768, leaving now to go see 2021 Best Picture nominee "Belfast."

Which leaves me with just three I haven't seen, two of which I don't think ever played here ("CODA," "Drive My Car") and one of which filled me with apathy every time I looked at the poster. ("Nightmare Alley")

Didn't not like this, but it's all very... it seems very engineered not to make anyone too mad? I'm not familiar enough with the period depicted to really have a big opinion, I guess.

A lot of the editing felt very intentional for sure but I couldn't figure out what the intent was meant to be.

Really running into the edges of how well I'm able to Talk About Film on this one, friends.

#119, or #769, leaving now to go see 2021's "The Man with the Answers."

Gay European road trip thing I think? Let's find out.

Beautiful, pensive, minimalist film. Gay without that ever being a problem. (yes yes yes!!!)

And he DOES have the Answers, albeit mostly to a largely made-up game of Twenty Questions.

#120, or #770, 2006's "Marie Antoinette," which looks very pastel.

You know, for all that I love "Lost in Translation," I haven't really sought out any other Sofia Coppola movies? (I liked "On the Rocks," didn't love it.)

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

the aristocracy is ridiculous

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

say what you want about the french but they sure used to wear dresses like they had several more legs under there than the average person

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

"This is ridiculous."

that's what I said

"This, madame, is Versailles."

same thing!!

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

all this nonsense about heirs

who even has the time

from heirs to hair

could hide a full baby in there

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

"The Bastille fortress was stormed by an angry mob."

a real bastille day if ever there was one

👸 "Marie Antoinette" (2006), posts I couldn't post while :beepboopone: was down 

terrific picture (and very pretty)

(anyone who cares about historical accuracy is a nerd)

#121, or #771, leaving now for an 11am screening of 2022's "The Lost City," which really should have retained its original title "The Lost City of D."

Bullock and Tatum and the occasional good gag are more than enough to keep a silly premise going for just under two hours.

Fun! A hoot!

#122, or #772, 2022 pandemic filmmaking comedy that dropped exactly too late "The Bubble."

You know, I've generally avoided watching pandemic movies, and -- am I laughing at the jokes here, ja, sure -- I suspect *pokes anxiety* that that was largely for the best.

"Jerusalem Rising" looks so bad it's a miracle it doesn't actually exist.

I hope some of these fake movies are credibly meant to be, like, pretty good instead of all just being goofy dogshit.

🎥🗨️ "The Bubble" (2006) 

this sure is exactly the thing I was expecting it to be

and pandemic stuff still isn't super funny to me, I guess

🎥🗨️ "The Bubble" (2006) 

This has gone A Little Too Ridiculous too early.

why did I cw this (2006) and also not notice until now

#123, or #773, 1939 Best Picture nominee "Ninotchka."

Which I'm pretty sure was primarily marketed with the tag line "Garbo Laughs !", so that's probably not a great sign.

this movie is being a real fucking hipster about being set before WW2, which France had only signed on for *googles* two months before this came out

"Remember June," says movie that comes out in November.

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

contemporary and historical politics aside, I do love a comedy Russian

beards, accents, three whole guys worth right here

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

"It concerns your jewels."
"My jewels?"

her jewels

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

"What a charming idea for Moscow to surprise us with a lady comrade."
"Don't make an issue of my womanhood."

gender: comrade

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

"A Russian! I love Russians! Comrade, I've been fascinated by your Five-Year Plan for the last fifteen years!"

:blobcatgiggle:

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

not a big Ersnt Lubitsch person, but this one I'm actually really enjoying

Garbo laughs? Alex laughs!

😆 "Ninotchka" (1939) 

a pretty watchable, fun fish-out-of-water romcom

nowhere near Lubitsch's worst

#124, or #774, you'd really think I would-a seen the time loop wedding comedy at some point but I haven't, 2020's "Love Wedding Repeat."

💒 "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020) 

Already quite a... high rate of dick and shit jokes only twenty minutes in.

💒 "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020) 

that classic wedding mistake of mega-roofieing your buddy

whomst amongst us hasn't mega-roofied a buddy at a wedding

💒 "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020) 

See, what this wants to be is the Community episode "Remedial Chaos Theory," but it's not pulling it off

💒 "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020) 

I mean, Community did, what, six timelines and a framing device in 22 minutes, this doesn't even quite justify showing you two and neither of them is any fun

💒 "Love Wedding Repeat" (2020) 

and why /not/ show them side by side

#125, or #775, 2021 depression-in-a-house horror picture "The Night House," solely because of this one shot, god-damn.

:twitter: 🔗 twitter.com/heyalexdaily/statu

existence of night house implies existence of day house

🏡 🌃 "The Night House" (2021) 

this dude was designing some sort of house of leaves to trap a ghost

who designs a ghost trap and then lives in it

🏡 🌃 "The Night House" (2021) 

"good places to live" and "the ghost trap" may seem mutually exclusive to somebody not living in the ghost trap but ghosts are actually great company, says local evil house poltergeist

@Alexis Lost In Translation Part III where her father had to stand in for the Scarlett Johansson role is not well liked, but Francis is no actor what's he gonna do.

@kurt "If ScarJo can play anything, anyone can play a ScarJo character," Sofia Coppola said.

@Alexis Where they worried people would read it as The Lost City of Dick?

@kurt That’s what I think it’s meant to mean, yeah, and they definitely focus grouped it and figured out they couldn’t get away with it.

@Alexis lol I thought "oh there must be an older movie also called The Bubble"

@Louisa There *is* actually a 2006 film called "The Bubble" but it's Israeli and turns out Israeli film is not well represented on my usual piracy sites.
