#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.

#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.

beepboop.one/@Alexis/108234288

#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."

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."

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

#158, or #808, Why Does This Sequel Exist Week carries on, with 2000's "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2."

#159, or #809, leaving now to go see 2022's "Everything Everywhere All at Once."

Follow

You know what day it is, I know what day it is, it's the only one this year.

#160, or #810, 1984's "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter."

A brave to choice to bring a final, conclusive, definitive end to this 12-film franchise with the 4th instalment.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

"Legend has it Jason saw his mother beheaded that night... and he took his revenge."

wow okay way to shift the blame for all these murders to the survivors of the first one, damn

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

of course, technically, this is Monday the 16th.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

*actually looks at a timeline* Oh, this is actually the night of Monday the 16th.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

making some real classic mistakes here, like bringing the dead killer to a morgue -- that's a whole damn hospital he's gonna be knifing his way out of in a minute

you gotta set that dude on fire, at least

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

"I tell you where I'm going, I'm going CRAZY!"

Crazy, Utah or Crazy, California.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

who sits down next to a roadside grave to do their hitchhiking

...if you're gonna disrespect someone to the point of burying them on the side of the road, just cremate them, jeez

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

in a lot of modern movies, the escape from the hospital is a whole act, here it's just a minor obstacle, it's his first few kills and moving on

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

kinda weird to have an actual kid in this instead of mostly 20-something teenagers you're meant to want to see naked

like I can believe all these teens'll be dead an hour from now, but not the kid

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

you know, even if I didn't believe in the whole Jason thing, I'd still probably just go camping somewhere else

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

Trying not to think too hard about the logistics of some of these kills, like, where Jason exists in the space, but also, you barely get the time to think too hard, anyway.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

okay, great, you've got him down, now set him on fire-- or nearly get axed, whatever

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

no way does a kid shave his whole head that fast

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

the "he's taking revenge for seeing his mother get decapitated" thing at the start clearly setup for Tommy going ham on Jason at the end here

🔪 "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" (1984) 

kind of retread-y, obviously, but at least some of the relentless nastiness has been turned down

all these teens still horrible perverts, tho

It's still the day it is, Jason is dead forever, let's see what's next.

#161, or #811, 1985's "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning," or "Tuesday the 17th."

(they fully covered the 17th and 18th in the last one and I think this one is gonna kick off with a substantial timeskip, but you know what I mean)

:knife: "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

you know what, I'd express some Doubt about these teenagers digging up Jason, but if your only awareness of the human teenager was from this franchise, you'd go "yeah, digging up Jason Voorhees seems like the kind of thing a human teenager would do."

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

A dream sequence, a timeskip. So far, Jason definitely still dead.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

is Pinehurst even IN the A Guy Kills You Here Woods

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

* Jason status: Dead.
* First kill done by somebody unrelated, just a guy who snaps, now hauled off.
* Paramedic who comes to pick up the body has a very intense reaction to seeing it? Doesn't say anything. (Victim's dad?)

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

I feel like I'm being faked out a lot here, they really want me to think Pinehurst is getting Jason'd but they're not showing me Jason

they're also not really on Jason's established turf

so clearly Tommy's gonna go "all these murders are Jasonings" and the Real Killer'll go "yeah that'd be a good disguise"

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

"I know who it is."
"Wait, what?"
"I said, I know who it is."
"...Who?"
"It's Jason Voorhees."
"Jason Voorhees!!"

jason voorhees

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

"Jason Voorhees is fucking dead!!"

hard agree

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

even by franchise standards, these teens are pretty boring

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

the non-teen characters are pretty stock, too

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

it's extremely obvious this isn't Jason (still dead, baby) and it's definitely the paramedic

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

I remember when these movies were about summer camp.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

say, blue stripes on that mask instead of red

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

On the one hand I think it's good for it not to be Jason, on the other hand I think it's weird that there's just a second unstoppable, unkillable killer wall of meat man.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

it was the paramedic all along

:surprised_pikachu:

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

I wish I got to feel clever for figuring it out instead of like it was a pretty stupid movie.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

why the fuck they keeping the paramedic's hockey mask in Tommy's damn hospital room

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

bad movie, bad ending

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

*tommy voice* i shall become the jason

One more, let's see how dead they keep Jason, it's

#162, or #812, "Wednesday the 18th" -- 1986's "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives."

...Seriously? In the title?

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

"This is between me and Jason."

Tommy (recast yet again) has become the Anti-Jason instead of the Jason, I guess

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

look buddy if the headstone ain't proof enough the dug-up but closed coffin ain't gonna do it either

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

I mean, that's *a* bunch of remains but who says they're *that* bunch of remains

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

tommy you absolute shitter, you frankensteined the fucker

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

"That's why we changed the name, people wanna forget this is Crystal Lake."

sensible. but also, how will people know what his territory is

🔪 "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" (1986) 

"Why'd they go and dig up Jason! ...Some folks have a strange idea of entertainment."

six movies in you can get away with some meta silliness, I reckon

@Alexis they should make a sci-fi one of these where it's a planet with different days of the week than earth has and they finally opt to have their first Earth day of the week, Friday; and their first Friday happens to fall on the 13th day of their space month

@The_T Coincidentally that's also the day when the mummified remains of an Earth serial killer are delivered to the planet for display in a Museum of Earth Stuff.

@Alexis oddly enough, this is basically the plot of a game in a freeware adventure game series released first in 2003, by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw, a writer for The Escapist, who afaik is a transphobe, but that didn't come out until long after I had seen a playthrough of this game

the 2nd game is about the killer from the first game's body having been launched into space, and then coming alive on a small space station that I think also had a killer among us (this came out before among us) idk the memory is vague at this point

@The_T To be fair, I was riffing on what I'm pretty sure is the plot of "Jason X" -- he gets cryogenically frozen and wakes up hundreds of years in the future -- which Yahtzee may have been ripping off, too.

@Alexis and yeah, I imagine so; but that story fucking... goes weird places in the 3rd game

honestly still not sure if I'd even call it "good", but like; for a free game in the early 2000s, before indie games were really a thing... it's impressive?

@The_T (also, The Escapist sucks, management very much chose the wrong side in 2014-16, so, not surprised Yahtzee sucks, too.)

@Alexis yeah, I was summarizing but definitely remember all that, hoo boy

can't believe they're still around honestly???

@The_T Oh, they've redesigned and are actually posting stuff besides Yahtzee videos again. Cockroach website.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@Alexis Suburbs of.

🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@kurt I feel like that's outside of his turf.

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@Alexis [movie trailer announcer guy voice] strap in, because Jason just found a new favorite hockey team...

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@The_T *movie trailer voice* This election season... *dramatic shot of the red stripes on his mask turning blue* [fill in your own joke here]

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@Alexis Jason is anti-life... but also anti-choice

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@Alexis shit myself because I misread this as pandemic

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@The_T Pandemic V: The Virus Has a Knife Now

re: 🔪 "Friday the 13th: A New Beginning" (1985) 

@Alexis I can't believe they've made 5 variations of this board game
