#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."

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.

#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.

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

Follow

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

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

just an absolute goddamn birdnado in this fucking attic

#176, or #826, I think this is just "what if /r/nosleep but too much" but people are hyping it up, so let's give it a shot, 2021's "We're All Going to the World's Fair."

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

"Today I'm going to be taking the World's Fair challenge."

well okay try not to eat any tide pods

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

"Okay, that was the World's Fair challenge. Thanks for watching."

credits roll, that was quick

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

I would simply not believe everything I saw on the internet.

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

Or WOULD I

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

this kid is way too online, but also mostly in the woods?

truly, the duality of kid

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

well this is

fucking tedious

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

girl you're not being taken over by dark forces, you're a kid whose parents should probably be around a little more

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

just because it captures a certain style of too-online unsupervised teenager tediousness very well doesn't mean it's not itself deeply fucking tedious

#177, or #827, not seen a bad John Carpenter film yet, 1987's "Prince of Darkness."

You know, I often go, "if this were me I would simply not have these problems" about movies, but if I were a quantum physicist and a church asked me to help them figure out something un-figure-out-able, I probably /would/ get into whatever trouble's about to go on here.

@kurt Dames, lassies, boids, all just different ways of spelling trouble. (So far, not even inaccurate.)

@Alexis A spy, I sense a great prequel story about a flock of birds taking the shape of a man to infiltrate humans and plan their attack.

@kurt I think they made that one, Michael Keaton plays the birds. Lost the prequel angle, though.

@Alexis What's even Michael Keaton's motivation for dressing as a human? To sue the guano industry?

@kurt To stay out of Morbius 2: Morb Harder, at this point, though I don't know why he did it before.

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

@Alexis Jason Voorhees is a bird?

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

@kurt Jason Voorhees is EVERY bird. And a shark.

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

@Alexis my favorite thing about The Birds is Tippi Hedren, to this day, signs her name with little birds around it.

🐦🐦🐦 "The Birds" (1963) 

@InternetEh oh, that's great, I love that

great signature right there

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

@Alexis Nah, this is the metaverse.

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

@kurt If Zuckerberg ever demands I stab myself with a pin, I'll simply stab him instead.

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

@Alexis Deep fried tide pods are a staple fair food.

👻 "We're All Going to the World's Fair" (2021) 

@kurt Tide pods came across on the Mayflower with the English and upon first contact with the Scottish they deep fried 'em before anyone could say 'detergent'.

A true American tradition.

@Alexis Well, Escape From L.A. is often lambasted, but that's because Escape From New York is so loved that that skews it a lot, but it ain't great.

Dark Star is a dull student film, but you'd give them a decent grade for it and it's got a beach ball with feet and Dan O'Bannon tweaked it and turned it into Alien, but it's still dull.

Ghosts of Mars, which is really zombies of mars, isn't good and if it's meant to be a parody it's still isn't good.

No one has seen The Ward.

@kurt Extremely tempted to put him on the next The List, especially since he's essentially retired from directing. But wondering if I should include the films he's scored, because all his scores are fucking stellar.

(Wait, he did Escape from New York??)

@Alexis Escape from New York, Big Trouble in Little China, Halloween, They Live you can't pin the man down to a genre.

*checks* There's not that many he scored that weren't his own.

@kurt Oh, yeah, you're right. I thought from him doing 2022's "Firestarter" of all things he must-a done more.

(Those "Halloween" scores are unbeatable. Even otherwise pretty forgettable "Firestarter" benefits massively from his contribution.)

@Alexis I love that he's just an old guy making albums now, it's like David Lynch building birdhouses or whatever, I don't know why, but it just feels like if they never end up making a movie again at least they're doing that.

@kurt Yeah, Lynch went out on top with "The Return" and though it's a shame the pandemic squashed things he was still trying to make happen, if the birdhouse retirement is it, I'm fine with that.
