#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."

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?

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

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.")

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

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

Gotta keep up that weekly average one way or another.

Leaving now to go see in a cinema, because it's playing, blorbo knows why, #168, or #818, 2017's "Get Out."

I've seen it before -- Letterboxd says June 30, 2020, five stars, no review, about two weeks before I started doing the thread thing.

#169, or #819, I saw somebody on letterboxd call this "a unique concept for a thriller" even though as far as I can tell it's just "murder in a house," but okay, who doesn't like Katey Sagal, 2022 country music horror thriller picture "Torn Hearts."

#170, or #820, I understand this has two Karens Gillan in it, 2022's "Dual."

Follow

Leaving now to go see 2021's "After Yang." #171, or #821.

Not entirely sure what it's about, Colin Farrell being sad about robots maybe? I'll watch Colin Farrell be sad about robots.

A wonderfully thoughtful and contemplative picture about what it means to be all sorts of things, and, more specifically, what it means to be at complicated intersections between those things.

And also Colin Farrell being sad about robots.

And /also/ Colin Farrell doing a Werner Herzog impression.

#172, or #822, I'm watching the tea documentary referenced in #171, #821, 2021's "After Yang," 2007's "All in This Tea."

Will I have anything to say about it? Impossible to say.

It's all a bit a white guy going Oh The Ancient Chinese Rituals Of It All mixed with pretty dry (wet?) documentation of the tea business in China circa 1997.

But I can see why Colin Farrell's character in 2021's "After Yang" was into this.

Let's watch the opposite of that, #173, or #823, 1997's "Air Bud."

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Had no idea the origin story of Airagar Budagon was he fucks over his clown owner and then falls off the back of the clown's clown truck.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

this bush is a natural basketball player

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

The kid has been made manager of the team (the "Timberwolves") mostly for showing up and forgetting to leave, which, you know, that's about the standards you expect from the team that's about to hire a labrador.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

this dog is a goddamned menace

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

"The Simmons twins moved to Canada, god knows why."

imagine getting outdone at sports team tryouts by a DOG

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

this dog has exactly one (1) trick, to bump a ball off his nose (learned it from being a clown dog, see)

I feel like I would probably be a better basketball player than a dog with one (1) trick

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Timberwolves v Warriors, no dog on the team yet, so naturally I'm totally uninvested in how this game goes

the dog is watching from the sidelines though, presumably learning basketball-- oop, he just ran onto the field

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Air Bud causes a great amount of slapstick mischief and damage to both people and property -- but then bumps the ball off his nose and into the basket, to first silence, and then great applause

...to be fair, he's a better player than most of the Timberwolves

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

the coach is an abusive dickhead

reckon they could get a gerbil in for the job

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Air Bud has been promoted to mascot.

I mean, he's no Gritty.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

So far Airagar Budagon is mostly just inspiring the Timberwolves to play good. He still has exactly one (1) trick.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

The clown has recognised Airagar Budagon on the news, just in time for some actual conflict in the last act.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Air Bud has been taken away by his original owner, which, you know. Quite a lot of rules that say he can do that.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Josh has committed a dognapping. Again, quite a lot of rules about this kind of thing, very clear legal precedence, etc.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

clown, clown on thyself

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

Only twenty minutes left, we gotta be comin' up on somebody sayin' "ain't no rule says a dog can't play basketball."

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

"I'm tired, coach. We're dyin' out there."
"You gotta let the ball do the work."

or, perhaps, a

I scroll through various streaming services and simply click on the first thing that looks like it might be funny, #174, #824, 2022's "Senior Year."

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

Tough job playing the young pre-coma version of a pretty standard Rebel Wilson character, interesting how that kind of material doesn't really work coming out of someone else. Too imitative, I guess.

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

*guy who was mad about Turning Red voice* this movie skips from 1999 to 2002 without ever mentioning what would surely be on everyone's entire minds the whole time, the deadly and historical events that occurred in New York City on the morning of Septemb

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

we should bring back 90s fashion

or at least the colours

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

for the most part, the rest of the 90s can stay in the 90s

but while we're at it, I'd like to staple several parts of the 2020s to the inside of a trash can

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

"I just found out there were eight more Fast and the Furious movies!"

in the latest one they gO TO SPACE

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

if I woke up from a coma after twenty years I would simply adjust extremely well

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

I barely remember the people I went to high school with, I definitely don't hold any grudges towards them

but I bet there's some folks from back then who could say the wrong thing to me and immediately ignite some Problems

:linkcheerA: "Senior Year" (2022) 

enjoyed that

Rebel Wilson is a good, fun physical performer, Sam Richardson is cute as hell, I'm glad it lands on "the 90s and 20s were/are both annoying and miserable in unique and distinct ways," no movie is worse for a few dance sequences.

nobody watching this extremely bird-centric title sequence is confused about what this movie is called or about

"How do you know my name?"
"A little birdie told me."

what if HE'S a BIRD

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

I feel like buying somebody some birds is a bad prank.

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

this is just "Jaws" but with birds

I'd much rather fight one shark than Every Bird, though, at least with a shark you can just stay on dry land

what're you gonna do against birds, move underground?

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

"...Mitch?"

you can't even hide from them indoors!!

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

not a pig to be seen in this Angry Birds movie

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

I would simply not be so relentlessly horny that the Birds decide to make it their problem

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

I feel like these kids would-a been okay if Tippi Hedren hadn't made them go outside

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

birds just sittin' around, very stressful

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

"If there are bigger birds, Mitch, they'll get into the house."

THE BIRDS 2: THE BIGGER BIRDS

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

truly, The Birds

@Alexis "We saw one of these disoriented or deranged robots head towards the mountains, with 5000 km ahead of it it is heading towards certain death."

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@Alexis Not against the rules, though.

🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@kurt Most American states do actually have laws against this exact kind of mischief.

re: 🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@Alexis sorry, there is a rule that says a 30-something can't play basketball in a children's league

re: 🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@The_T damn

they got me with the rule meant to keep out the retired basketball legend who's now the old man janitor who gives advice in the dark

re: 🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@Alexis

Physician: clown thyself

is one of the great jokes of the past. (I can't figure out how to make it clear this is a pagliacci reference)

re: 🐶 🏀 "Air Bud" (1997) 

@The_T More like Physician: Clown myself.

(I love a good Pagliacci.)
