#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?

#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")

#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.

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

#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."

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

#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.

#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."

#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

#126, or #776, 2022's "Fresh," in which Seb Stan is a... cannibal? A zombie? Look, if you watch a movie every day, sometimes you just pop one on and hope for the best.

This is what we've been Caging ever onwards to.

#127.

#776.

Leaving now to finally go see 2022's "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent."

#128, or #778, I was once again reminded there's only three movies by one notable director that I haven't seen yet when I've seen all his other ones, so fuck it, let's go.

From 2004, Zack Snyder's "Dawn of the Dead."

you know, I think this might be the exact movie I think of when I say I'm not into zombie movies

we watched it at school, no idea what the context was, when I was like 15 or 16, and I found it deeply unpleasant

but I liked "Army of the Dead," so

I give no living human being as many chances as I do Zackagar Snyderagon and I do not know why

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

I may be independently reinventing some ye olde discourse here but these zombies move too fucking fast

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

"screenplay by James Gunn"

grim combination

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

"We're going to the mall."

this is no time get yer shop on, the prices are gonna be apocalyptic

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

of all the ways you could break out of that shop who the fuck goes for throwing a shitter through the window

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

good mall content

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

"What are they?"
"I don't know."

almost like they're some kind of [static]

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

you know what, I've actually got a pretty high tolerance for screen gore and violence, and I've got pretty used to a world where you're surrounded by a killer plague, but I still don't have a lot of patience for the disease called everyone waving fucking guns around

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

"Is everyone there dead?"
"Dead-ish."

like some kind of [old-timey tv shutting off sound]

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

it took them nearly an hour to get to "it's the bites."

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

you can tell the Zackagar Snyderagon we know and hate is in here because sometimes shit just be nasty for the sake of it

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

to be fair it's also 2004

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

now that's a dead mall

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

*sighs in boring gun action*

#129, or #779, another random movie just because somebody on letterboxd made it sound interesting and that's good enough for me, 2021 blind home invasion thriller "See For Me."

📱 "See For Me" (2021) 

Home invasion, blind catsitter, I think the gimmick is they use an app so a person can help them see what's going on? Something like that.

📱 "See For Me" (2021) 

This is very stressful.

📱 "See For Me" (2021) 

The woman on the other side of the app is very helpful, but also a gamer? Ridiculous combination.

📱 "See For Me" (2021) 

"Yeah, it's done."

boooo

📱 "See For Me" (2021) 

that was pretty good

maybe one small twist too many

#130, or #780, at @kurt's absolutely whole-hearted and unequivocal recommendation, 1967 Canadian experimental room film "Wavelength."

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

strawberry fields apparently not forever

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

room continues to room

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

room status: room

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

hard to tell what the room is up to in its current overexposed condition

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

I can see it again. It's still a room, rooming.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

This is utterly gripping. Anything could happen. That it chooses not to doesn't matter.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

Is that a plane? No, something falling, crashing.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

This does not have the budget for a plane crash.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

A person calmly walked into the room, then fell to the ground. Dead? Certainly not getting back up.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

room still rooming

also room zooming, the person who fell over is out of shot already

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

*whistles along to the incessant machinal whining noise that accompanies all this the whole time*

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

I hope my neighbours can't hear this

#131, or #81, this one can't possibly be particularly offensive, SURELY, the second of the three unwatched Zack Snyder movies, 2010's "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole."

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

All these identical-ass fucking owls, this is worse than all those 1930s black-and-white movies where everyone's a white dude in a tux.

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

I simply do not enjoy looking at this motion picture.

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

isn't Zackagar Snyderagon meant to be like

doesn't he have a reputation for being visually very strong

this is a one hundred percent commitment to visual mud

and these owls are only like a tad more expressive than the Favreau Lion King

they could be the water balloons of ga'hoole for how unexpressive they are

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

this one fuckin su-- is that a goddamn owl city song

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

me, who thought 300 was bad: this is like if 300 was bad

🦉 "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" (2010) 

lousy picture

#132, or #782, 2020 Japanese sci-fi comedy "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes," which I think is about a café owner who discovers his TV can see a whole two minutes into the future.

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

"I'm two minutes in your future. I was just in your shoes."

2-minute version of Blink.

@Alexis you know what, I'd watch a Zack Snyder Inhumans film, fuck it

@The_T I mean, say what you want about Man of Steel, BvS, and Justice League, I'll still talk about those any day of the week.

Meanwhile, I think you may be the only person I've even acknowledged the existence of the Inhumans TV show to in /years/.

@Alexis my absolutely favorite thing about the Inhumans TV show was AoS had a ton of stuff about Inhumans and still never acknowledged that show.

Like, woof.

@The_T It was gonna be a whole thing, we were getting a full Inhumans mythos on Agents of SHIELD, and they don't so much as WINK at each other!

(Nobody should ever have told old man Perlmutter the Inhumans were a bit like the X-Men.)

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

@kurt Also known as gunfluenza, or the freedom flu.

🧟 "Dawn of the Dead" (2004) 

@Alexis fun fact: the pulllout shot near the beginning where they show the neighbourhood is not far from where my wife and I lived when that movie was being filmed. My wife was working one day when she saw Sarah Polly, covered in blood makeup from shooting that opening.

SPOILER 🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

@Alexis Thing does happen.

SPOILER 🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

@kurt A thing just happened!
