#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: 🔗

#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.



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.

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

#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."

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."

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."

#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.

#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

#153, or #803, 1971's "THX 1138."

You know, for a guy who kinda transformed the motion picture blockbuster /twice/, Lucas' work outside of Star Wars and Indiana Jones never really comes up as much as you'd think.

#154, or #804, I'm seeing the new one with my mom tomorrow morning, so, though I've only seen the first three seasons of the show, tonight, 2019's "Downton Abbey."


Did not actually go see the new "Downton Abbey," because my mom's car once again had an anxiety attack about the highway, so, instead, the opposite, but still a sequel:

#155, or #805, 1977's "Exorcist II: The Heretic."

I saw the first one two years and six days ago. Barely knew what a movie was.

me if i were an exorcist: "have you tried not being possessed"

if I were possessed by some manner of satan I would simply not be possessed by some manner of satan

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

"You keep telling me you don't remember about that time in Washington."
"I remember being very sick and having nightmares, and that's all."

that's about what I remember, too

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

"what if we did some experiments on the famously possessed girl for who it's probably for the best she doesn't remember" --nobody sensible

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

"Deeper, Regan. Deeper."

not a single sensible person in this room

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

this fucking fool hypnotised herself

absolute clown shit

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

the image of an angel is an angel, the memory of a demon is a demon

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

a lot going on here

none of it is very good but a lot of it sure is going on

👹 "Exorcist II: The Heretic" (1977) 

this feels so pointless

like, it's ambitious, but I have no idea why I'm supposed to care

the flashbacks feel superfluous even when they connect to the Regan story

1975's "Jaws" is one of the finest movies ever made. I'm pretty sure it doesn't need sequels.

#156, or #806, 1978's "Jaws 2."

A shark attack ala 1975's "Jaws" is, I'm pretty sure, fairly rare, so one of these sequels better have some silly shit about how they're drawn to Amity Island specifically for some reason.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

If I were a scuba photographer looking for the remains of the boat (the one they were gonna need a bigger one than) from the first one, I would simply not get killed by a shark.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

"What's that?"
"A divers' camera."

Diving cameras washing up seems like a good sign of good things happening.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

me, pitching Jaws 6: "this time... the shark has a speedboat"

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

"I have some experience with sharks."
"Oh, have you?"

clearly somebody hasn't seen the 1975 documentary "Jaws"

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

"Sharks don't take things personally, Mr Brody."

oh don't worry i'm sure they'll figure out how to within a sequel or two

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

(Though really, the shark from the first one is pretty bad at not taking things personally.)

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

"Nothing she saw is proof of anything."


I mean

the dead orca WAS taken out by SOMETHING that


it wasn't a

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

look, if the guy who people didn't believe but who was right all along about a shark attack a few years ago suddenly starts going on about sharks again,

i'm gonna be Team That Guy on the shark issue

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 


you don't say

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

if I can see the pneumatic insides of the shark, they're showing it too much

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

shark versus chopper, that's what we're here for

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

If I get through the other two sequels, I should follow it up with at least one (1) Sharknado, I reckon

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

basically just The First One Again, but mostly executed competently enough that the main issue with it is that the first one exists and is one of the best movies ever made

like if 1975's "Jaws" didn't exist, we'd think this one was alright

#157, or #807, I guess it's Sequels Nobody Asked For Week, 1983's "Psycho II."

🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

"Norman Bates is judged restored to sanity."

*amity island tourist voice* boy it sure seems safe to go back to Bates Motel

🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 


I feel like the house at Bates Motel is extremely low on the list of good places for Norman Bates to be.

🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

"See, no ghosts."


🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

So clearly Mary and somebody else are trying to drive him back to madness, but why, though.

@Alexis wow, didn't think I could relate so much to a car

@arthurwyatt Probably not.

If Downton Abbey 2's titular "A New Era" is that series finally being dragged into the Jazz Age, the women may /seem/ possessed, though.

@Alexis I'm pretty sure it needs exactly 18 sequels

@The_T The Jaws Cinematic Universe WILL happen, I yell, threateningly pointing a toy gun vaguely in the general direction of America.

@Alexis They need to start doing more, like, Alien VS Predator-style big cinema crossovers of previously unrelated films. Like, how IDW did a Transformers/Back to the Future comic. We need more movies like that.

@The_T This is exactly what I've been saying. I genuinely think that's a better way to play on the cinematic universe thing than actually trying to do a cinematic universe.

(There was talk, for a while, of a Jurassic World/Fast and the Furious crossover. Would-a made a trillion dollars.)

@Alexis yet another reason, my utopia is a world without copyright.

People can just make films, make crossovers, of whatever properties they want.

Only the good ones, the ones people like, are added to the "canon" and built upon. Sometimes splinter universes/storylines happen, but that still happens under the current system!

@The_T Yeah, you still get competing versions of the same superhero, competing Sherlocks Holmes, that kind of thing, all the time.

Really, what you're proposing is a world of infinite reading orders, and I'm here for it.

Jaws: The Revenge 

@Alexis Who do you think is the one taking revenge in Jaws: The Revenge?

Jaws: The Revenge 

@kurt Ben and Hurley move the Island one more time -- this time, right on top of the shark?

Jaws: The Revenge, lost 

@Alexis You know there's a shark in the shot that reveals the island is under water in the flashsideways, so that means the Jaws from Jaws went to Lost heaven.

Jaws: The Revenge, lost 

@kurt Oh, right, I forgot about that.

Unfortunately the actor who played the Jaws from Jaws was unavailable for the church scene at the end.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

@Alexis I don't think, unlike 4 coining 'this time it's personal', that one is going to take off.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

@kurt "This shark... has legs."

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

@Alexis You're just slowly remaking sharknado at this point.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

@lpslucasps Yeah, you kinda can't do an over the top shark movie these days, can you.

🦈 "Jaws 2" (1978) 

@Alexis I like the implication that Sharknado is just the logical conclusion we have to get to at some point.

🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

@Alexis @rand__althor So, that entry was added on April second by 3040Thirty who's user page gives a warning that it is a sockpuppet account of TotalTruthTeller24, the former accounts has been blocked indefinitely and the latter has been banned permanently.

3040Thirty's edits to the template have not been undone.

The light novel does exist, but there is no evidence it is canon or licensed in any way.

re: 🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

@Alexis that universe free of copyright where crossovers just exist, it's merging with our reality!!!!!!!!

re: 🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

@The_T I always think of Japan as pretty strict about even parody and pastiche, but that's, uhhhh.

re: 🔪 "Psycho II" (1983) 

@Alexis idk, copyright law is different there (although that may not apply in this case as it's a "parody"). But like, look at Lupin III. It had legal trouble at first when they tried to localize it in the US, because of the estate owning the character. But in Japan Arsene Lupin is treated as a public domain character.

unrelated note 

@Alexis also unrelated note, it has happened more than once on my stream that I'm rambling about Doctor Who or MCU and I shout you out. Figured you might want to know. *shrug*
