#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."

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."

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."

#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."

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

#178, or #828, 1998's "Deep Impact," because they watch it in 2022's "Senior Year."

#179, or #829, 1980's "Airplane!"

Literally first joke got me, a plane cutting through the clouds like a Jaws-ian shark, heehee.

Leaving now for Sneak Preview. #180, or #830.

I have reasons to rule out all my guesses -- "Men," too horror, "Jurassic World 3," too sequel, "Memory," already the Unlimited Night screening -- so, no idea, we'll see!

Leaving now for a Pride Night screening of 2021's "Swan Song." #181, or #831.

(I see a screening for something gay, I go see something gay, this is very simple.)


#182, or #832, let's watch something else gay, 1999's "But I'm a Cheerleader."

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

Oh, Natasha Lyonne just always sounded like that.

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

"I myself was once a gay."

I was a gay once, and twice, I was a gay several times, so I figured, you know, I might as well stick with it.

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

haha these are the gayest goddamn "heterosexuals" I've ever seen

:linkcheerB: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

"I'm a homosexual! I'm a homosexual! I'm a homosexual!"

good news!

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

this is terrific

:linkcheerB: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

terrific conversion therapy satire, obviously, also very sweet

it's the costuming that really nails it, loud blues and pinks, but still getting it wrong, great stuff

I appear to have recovered from 4 x 10 minutes of light exercise earlier today, so leaving now to go see 2022's "Jurassic World: Dominion." #183, or #833.

I'm pretty sure this is my first 3D movie since some time before the pandemic, so it's my first chance to wear these 3D aviators I bought for 750 cinema points just before the pandemic and look like an absolute loon.

Damn, they finally figured out how to make another fun one.

Really, this is just a multi-Doctor story -- the new cast meets the old cast, they play all the hits, they use all the music cues you want, you have a good time. I had a good time!

Weird to also make it a crossover with television's "Deadliest Catch," though.

#184, or #834, sometimes I put on a movie that looks bad without a good reason, but this time it's because I've been listening to movie podcast The Flop House and they've finally done one that I haven't seen, 2022's "The King's Daughter."

And I say "2022's," this is the Pierce Brosnan one that got delayed three weeks before release and then sat on the shelf for five years because nobody could be fucked to release it.

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

Brosnan plays King Louis XIV, who gets shot, realises he's mortal, and has a ship sent out to find a cure for that problem all within the first five minutes.

...Oh, the ship's back, I guess.

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

This would be less on the nose if it was a pair of glasses.

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

*sighs* maybe they should-a let this one sit for another five years

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

me, watching the bad movie: this is not good

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

this is maybe a movie for people who don't wanna gotta think about movies too hard to enjoy 'em

🧜‍♀️ "The King's Daughter" (2022) 

dogshit picture

#185, or #835, I have nothing else to do today so I sigh and put on 1939 Best Picture nominee and winner "Gone with the Wind."

All four fucking hours of it.

...Well, wait, how long is this overture. Saves me three minutes, I guess.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

Oh, right, colour exists now. Be nice for trees to be green and all, I guess.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

I'm not actually remotely familiar with "Gone with the Wind," on account of I'm not American or awful, though I think I've read a Donald Duck adaptation of it. (Of course I have.)

What I'm /expecting/ is a story set during plantation times that actively romanticises and celebrates all the bad shit.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

But mostly it's pretty dull so far. Like if the Little Women did a lot more prayin'.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

Fuck me, already tired of this.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

Every white character in this is either actively complicit in or plainly benefits from the atrocities of slavery, and, frankly, that kind of sucks the life out of anything else that might be going on.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939), slavery 

If you think it's not just normal to have an unpaid and involuntarily employed housekeeper kept prisoner by way of perpetual threat of extreme violence or death but that that's her best possible lot in life, I, well, I, hm, I, uh, I don't think I can physically bring myself to care about your love life.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939), racism 

Finally, colour, I can tell all the characters in one of these apart, and they're all fucking white supremacists.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939), racism 

Four hours long and we skip over several weddings all at once, jeez louise.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

Straight from the wedding to the funeral, this might get to the 2020s before the two-hour mark.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

"My life is over!"

girl you were married for one crowd scene

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

"All these poor, tragic people. The South's sinking to its knees. It'll never rise again."

oh heavens won't somebody think of the racist human traffickers

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

One hour in. Leigh and Gable charming enough. All these racists sure feel like the Civil War is terribly unfair to them.

America just always been like this, huh.

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

"I hate you! I hate you! And I hate your baby!"

finally something we can agree on, I, too, not a big fan of the human baby

🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 


🇺🇸 "Gone with the Wind" (1939) 

Intermission. The occasional striking image can't make up for this being despicable.

#186, or #836, I watched this the day it came out but it wasn't on Letterboxd then, but now it is, Bo Burnham's "The Inside Outtakes."

Liked the original special, liked this, though it's clearly the weaker material, good and reasonable to cut all this.

#187, or #837, let's watch another John Carpenter, 1994's "In the Mouth of Madness."

I'm not a big Lovecraft person, but I've heard good things.

If I was a horror writer in a horror movie I would simply write romance novels instead.

👄 "In the Mouth of Madness" (1994) 

What's the best category of writer to be in a horror movie?

Maybe I'll just keep being a cartoonist.

👄 "In the Mouth of Madness" (1994) 

Oh, it's David Warner.

"I'm Dr Wrenn."

Dr W., you say.

👄 "In the Mouth of Madness" (1994) 

American cops instantly stopping a guy with a weapon? Now I KNOW we're in the mouth of madness.

👄 "In the Mouth of Madness" (1994) 

*considers* Have I ever read anything that made me feel the urge to go around hitting things with an axe? Well, the news.

re: :linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

@Alexis oh, I watched this movie when I was like, 15 or 16. Definitely a moment of "I don't know what I am yet but I wish I was a lesbian".

Good movie.

re: :linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

@The_T I had that moment a lot at that age, too.

Mostly from that one episode of "Friends" where Joey says he wishes he was a lesbian, which, you know, took me a while to figure out the actual joke, when, like, who wouldn't wanna be a lesbian.

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

@Alexis A favorite of Jalan's, who grew up in that culture.

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

@naga I can't imagine just being in that culture at all times. But great movie!

:linkcheerA: "But I'm a Cheerleader" (1999) 

@Alexis the oppressive parents' culture, to be clear.

But she's recovered nicely!

@melivia Bafflingly, Hollywood occasionally makes films he's not in.

@Alexis So I don't know much about this series, I haven't seen any except the first one, but; I'm guessing Jurassic Park III was not well liked, and thus

My theory is that the name "Jurassic World" is to make people think of the first two films, JURASSIC Park and The Lost WORLD

@The_T The title "Jurassic World" does a few things -- communicates scale, a return to the theme park, and it's a promise that this one delivers on -- but that's probably one of them, yeah.

(Though, I mean, what word COULD they have pulled from the title "Jurassic Park III.")

@Alexis They could have called this one Jurassic World III

Jurassic Park
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
Jurassic Park III
Jurassic World III
Jurassic World III 2: Fallen Kingdom
Jurassic World III III: Dominion

@Alexis yes, but one suggestion

Jurassic World IIIIII: Dominion
