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

Follow

#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

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

We're zoomed in pretty far, and a person has come into the room to use the telephone, to... calmly tell somebody about the dead person on the floor.

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

Hard to tell what the room is up to, the camera is getting pretty close to one of the pictures on the wall.

#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.

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

"Your monitor and the TV downstairs are linked."

Oh, it's not even, like, the news. Interesting.

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

Him talking to his future self and then running downstairs to talk to his past self in one uninterrupted shot is an easy enough effect -- just timing and pre-recorded video -- but very effective.

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

"Did you just reply?"

this is great, I love this

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

this is a blast, low stakes, all one shot, very silly

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

"I was tricked... and I did the tricking!"

A SELF-BAMBOOZLE

TRAGIC

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

now very stressful

should-a listened to the guy who didn't wanna fuck with time

📺 "Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes" (2020) 

"We're not suspicious people."

sounds good, that's exactly what somebody unsuspicious would say

I didn't even know this was a one-shot thing -- though you can tell the seams pretty easily -- I was just up for some timey-wimey shenanigans

works pretty hard to stretch what it has to 70 minutes, but that's a good length for this premise

terrific picture

enthusiastic recommendation for this one to anyone who likes a good one-shotter or timey-wimey shenanigans

#133, or #783, let's follow that one up with the one everyone on Letterboxd compared it to, 2017 Japanese one shot zombie comedy "One Cut of the Dead."

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

"Oh, they painted you, huh?"

I dunno, that guy looks a lot more convincing than Ken did downsta-- whoop yup

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

"Action!!"

oh fuck this dickhead

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

*pokes America, points at this movie* look how much better this is for not having a bunch of fucking guns in it

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

"That's it!!"

oh my god fall off this roof

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

ma'am i think that might be second degree murder when this tape gets released

🧟 "One Cut of the Dead" (2017) 

What? Credits?

...is this a double fake out

SPOILER 🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

@Alexis Thing does happen.

SPOILER 🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

@kurt A thing just happened!

🏢 "Wavelength" (1967) 

@Alexis "What's that high pitched whistle coming from next door?

@kurt I've seen things that weren't movies, and I'm pretty sure if this is one thing and nothing else, it's a movie.
