#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."

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.

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."

Follow

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

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

these are better teens than the last set, mostly cuz they're kind of a return to form, but also cuz none of them are relentless, miserable perverts

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

now he's SURELY pretty dead forever

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

oh this son of a bitch

*politely waves to the murderman* see you in january

#163, or #813, just gonna put on a favourite, 2020's "Palm Springs."

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

"Why is he dressed for a luau?"

no, no, who wears full suits to a desert wedding

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

I would definitely notice if somebody in my vicinity was in a time loop.

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

I'd love to be in a time loop. No more news.

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

"I should never have left the Great Lakes!! This place is a nightmare!!"

this is how I often feel about leaving the north

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

went up to the roof to see if I could see any evidence of the massive power outage downtown (I could not)

anyway, not much to say about 2020's "Palm Springs" that wouldn't just be time loop thoughts I've said before

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

he's one of them shaggy dogs

I took two days off from movies so I could actually finish school, but I return! To the movie theatre! For Sneak Preview! #164! #814! Exclamation mark!

(I think it's probably 2022's "Firestarter.")

Wait, no, that's already playing. So I have no idea!

It was 2021 anime “Belle.”

Flawed, but also, huge emotions delivered with style and grace, so obviously I cried buckets.

#165, or #815, leaving now to actually go see 2022's "Firestarter."

🔥👧 "Firestarter" (2022) 

I haven't seen or read any previous versions, but quite a lot of this seems to happen because it happened in the original movie or the book, which-- Those are decisions made by people written by people whose blood was 45% cocaine, you gotta rethink some of this a little more.

What does this story look like in 2022? 2022's "Firestarter" does not have the answers.

🔥👧 "Firestarter" (2022) 

Just really doesn't have anything to say, no contemporary themes, no justification of, why remake this in the Year of Luigi 2022? What was the goal, besides remaking this in the Year of Luigi 2022?

🔥👧 "Firestarter" (2022) 

Great Carpenter score, though.

"Day 1"

the quiet place before people shut the fuck up

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

monster arm comin outta the front of that bus tho

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

oh that cellphone's gonna be the death of-- there she goes

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

if I lived in une quiet place I would simply not move house

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

"You can't stay. I don't know why you came all the way up here, but you can't stay."

the bear traps did communicate a certain amount of hostility to new arrivals

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

a little weird honestly to immediately replace the dad's role in the story with another guy with a beard

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

I don't think these people have seen even one episode of Scooby-Doo.

You've split up three ways?!

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

"Hey. Look at me."

aurgh

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

a lot more alien invasion action thriller than family under attack thriller like the first one, but I get it, you gotta scale up

I wanted to see the world outside this one family and it delivers

and then ends pretty much as soon as it can

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

the big tricks from the first one are aging hats here but they still work, I still catch myself holding my breath

not sure why people seemed down on this one?

#167, or #817, 2022's "Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers."

Gotta keep up that weekly average one way or another.

"Chip, Dale, how would you like your own show?"

Ridiculous. Would never work.

🐿️🐿️ "Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers" (2022) 

can't believe they got Ugly Sonic

@Alexis it was originally planned to be a broadway musical, Jason Live, but that fell through and they had to quickly add an S on there

@The_T They were originally gonna do the musical for the fifth one but the Jackson Five sued.

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

@Alexis there are others in the time loop and apparently happy to remain there

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

@Alisca Yeah, I've seen it before. Love that there's a bunch of different perspectives on it in here, not just the grouchy Bill Murray angle.

🌴 "Palm Springs" (2020) 

@Alexis ah well you mentioned it's a personal favorite so I knew it was safe from spoilers. I think I spotted two, but I only remember the old lady. I love an good old timeloop

@Alexis They totally fooled me into forgetting the flaws near the end I proper cried

@HiFunctArtistic Yeah, what happens after the reveal makes up for the issues I have with the reveal, I cried even harder at the end.

But it also has things to say about, for example, anonymity and moderation online that I either disagree with or that I don't think it's really thought through.

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

@Alexis Is Jim Halpert in the sequel?

🔕 "A Quiet Place Part II" (2021) 

@rand__althor Only in an opening flashback to "day one" of the monster situation.

But no Dwight. Bad episode of The Office.

@Alexis You can always keep a couple of Wong Fei-hung or Zatoichi films on hand in case you need more films to keep up your average. Also there are apparently 48 Scooby-Doo movies, but I don't know to what degree they'd all count.

@kurt The rule is if it's a feature length (Academy rules is 40 minutes) film and on letterboxd it counts, so I can't "cheat" with TV specials or, like, 45-second silent shorts from 1893.

I'm pretty sure all the Scooberts-Doo are on there.

@Alexis to be fair they were never the stars of that show

@Alexis just found out Chip and Dale are so non-notable that they share a single Disney Wiki page, instead of each having their own pages

@The_T I wouldn't call them non-notable, but Wikipedia be like that if they never do any solo projects.
