#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

#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."

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

#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."

#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.

#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."

#134, or #784, the last Zack Snyder I haven't seen, 2011's "Sucker Punch."

#135, or #785, leaving now to go see-- Well, it's Sneak Preview again, so I don't know yet.

It's probably 2022's "Morbius." But it could be anything.

(But it's "Morbius.")

#136, or #786, sure, I'll watch a dumb one about a cursed video game, 2022's "Choose or Die."

#138, or #788, I've randomly put on 2022's "No Exit."

bet they find one at the end

let's clear some things out from my downloads folder

*rolls some dice, flips a coin*

#139, or #789, 2022's "Deep Water," which I don't know anything about, except that there was Discourse that I've definitely already missed the window on.

#140, or #790, 2020's "Looks That Kill," about a young man who's... so handsome just looking at his face is lethal? Sure.

#141, or #791, 2000's "American Psycho," which I'm pretty sure is about Christian Bale (murderman) pretending to be Christian Bale (not a murderman)

#142, or #792, I understand this started production as an entirely unrelated film that was changed to be what it is now while they were already filming, 2002's "American Psycho II: All American Girl."

#143, or #793, 2019's "One Cut of the Dead in Hollywood."

#143.1, or #793.1, point-one because this one's only 26 minutes long, way under the Academy's definition of "feature film," so I'm not allowed to count it, but I still wanted to thread it, 2020's "One Cut of the Dead Mission: Remote."

#144, or #794, 2020's "Spontaneous," which I think is a teen romcom set in a world where people can and do just spontaneously explode?

I'm sure this won't be extremely relatable to me, who has lived through more than two years of a global pandemic.

#145, or #795, 2014's "Unfriended."

Is this ghostmurdercrime by murderghost observed over video chat or just regular murdercrime by a murdercrimesman observed over video chat? Only one way to find out.

for veracity's sake this should've come with badly auto-generated subtitles

great effective use of all the parts of the cliché buffalo, I was gonna say, but I think this probably codified the buffalo

#146, or #796, leaving now to go see 2022 DreamWorks picture "The Bad Guys."

Pretty much what it looked like, stylish, fun animation delivers a solid heist morality tale.

A fun watch with half a dozen giggly teens behind you.

Enjoyed it.

#147, or #797, I randomly downloaded this a while ago and then the other day it came up in something I was listening to -- or, well, the original play did -- so that's enough reason for me, 1992's "Noises Off."

🛫 "Noises Off" (1992) 

Michael Caine, director of the play, which he evidently thinks is dogshit: "None of us will get out of New York alive -- they've got big pictures of us in the lobby!"

what is a poster for a movie or a play if not just a wanted poster without a reward listed

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

this is hysterical and paced like a heart attack

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

Misunderstandings, I don't think there's been a single understanding!

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

this is terrific, fun as heck

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

this second first act is very stressful

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

oof this third first act

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

Happy ending comes kinda out of nowhere, but other than that,

Terrific picture.

I was gonna go see 2022's "Downton Abbey: A New Era" with my mom tomorrow, so the plan for today was to watch 2019's "Downton Abbey" -- having got through three seasons of the show -- but then my parents' car had a nervous breakdown, so that's been postponed.

Instead, one of those Letterboxd never shuts the fuck up about, #148, or #798, 1994 Chinese picture "Chunking Express."

"We rub elbows with a lot of people every day."

me, still doing the pandemic elbow bump: very relatable

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

"We are all unlucky in love sometimes. When I am, I go jogging."

taking getting told to jog on to a whole new level

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

"Every day, I bought a can of pineapples with a sell-by date of May 1st."

this man eating PINEAPPLES toDAY

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

This woman in the wig and raincoat, in nearly 800 movies I've not seen someone trying to look inconspicuous fail just this hard.

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

"All those pineapples gave me a stomachache."

heartache, stomachache, now he's going out drinking for some kidneyache

the rest of this guy's organs better watch the fuck out

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

"If memories could be canned... would they have expiration dates, too?"

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

as stories go, these are nothing to write home about,

but as vibes go,,,

🏃 "Chungking Express" (1994) 

"Wherever you want to take me."

hay fevering pretty bad over here, but enjoyed that

lovely picture

exquisite vibes

Another one that's been on the pile for a while, no idea what it's about, #149, or #799, 2021's "C'mon C'mon."

you know, for all that I didn't think 2019's "Joker" was any good, I don't really think about it that much

so I guess I can look at Joaquin Phoenix without getting annoyed

📻 "C'mon C'mon" (2021) 

he plays here a public radiosman who interviews kids, you know, that kind of show

I assume he's about to learn some new things about life from hanging out with a kid, you know, that kind of movie

📻 "C'mon C'mon" (2021) 

I don't really have anything to say about this

it's fine

it's, you know, pleasant

#150, or #800, but I don't know what it is yet, leaving now for Sneak Preview.

I did my Sneak Preview guessing last night.

beepboop.one/@Alexis/108234288

Couldn’t have been more wrong — it was 2022 WW2 spy picture “Operation Mincemeat.”

2022’s “Operation Mincemeat,” or “hey girl what if we RP’d our OC’s so hard even the Nazis will think they’re canon.”

Don't usually go in for war pictures, but, you know, Sneak Preview.

Enjoyed it well enough. Helps that the emphasis was on in-door spy stuff over combat, mostly set in various London rooms.

Not much else to say about it. Solid historical drama. I like most of these actors, it's nice to see'm. Romantic element works well enough.

Ian Fleming's a side character, for presumably historically accurate reasons, to discover he ought-a write a book about this stuff, maybe.

I wouldn't have gone to see this if not for Sneak Preview, but that's a good audience to see something like this with, the regulars all laugh at all the same dumb shit I laugh at.

#151, or #801, leaving now to go see 2022's "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness."

> in the morning??

we've been over this

🐟 "Noises Off" (1992) 

@Alexis

I laughed so hard at that my then roommate came flying downstairs to yell at me because she had to work the next morning.

@Alexis It's about a plus sized train who finds their place in... no, wait, that's Chunky Express.

@kurt It's actually a prequel to an American film, this is where the Pineapple Express stoners bought their pineapples.

@Alexis one of the highlights from last years “maybe an Oscar contender?” batch. (Didn’t get any nominations in the end, but we have no regrets watching it to get out in front of them)

@arthurwyatt Yeah, it was on the to-watch list because it was on all the Oscar buzz lists. I can see why!

I can also totally see why this didn't beat the movies that did get nominated.

@Alexis better than a couple that did, IMHO. But we see that every year.
