Movie #67, "Gremlins 2: The New Batch."

Let's find out what the fuck that Key & Peele sketch everyone loves was about.

Show thread

Movie #68, I'm watching something called "The Stone Tape," from 1972.

I think it's a haunted house thing by the Quatermass guy?

Show thread

I've always sort of not-bothered with this one on account of its poor reputation -- movie #71 is 2003's "Hulk."

Show thread

Have put on something called "Velvet Buzzsaw." Movie #72.

* art gallery
* mass homicide
* Jake Gyllenhaal, I'm pretty sure

Show thread

movie #73

the 2017 "The Mummy," of the trailer with the missing audio tracks, of the failed called shot cinematic universe,

at least Tom Cruise is usually pretty watchable?

Show thread

today's movie is #75, "Tomorrow Never Dies."

if I'd watched it tomorrow, would it be "Today Never Dies"?

Show thread

Today's movie, #77, is the 1991 "The Addams Family."

Another one from my list for this month that's set at Christmas, I guess.

Show thread

Forgot to download what I was gonna watch, so today's motion picture movie film is 2017's "The Babysitter," because it's on Netflix. #78.

Show thread

uhhh #79, 1991's "The Silence of the Lambs," I guess

i better not hear a peep outta no sheep

Show thread

Had to watch this for school, and it's on Letterboxd, so I guess it counts.

#80 is "Muster," or "Rushes," a 2012
German installation film about the cyclical nature of trauma, as seen from three points in history.

#82, "The Babysitter: Killer Queen," because the first one was actually pretty good.#82, "The Babysitter: Killer Queen," because the first one was actually pretty good.

I'm halfway through #83, 1928 Charlie Chaplin picture "The Circus."

This is great, but the music is getting on my nerves.

Show thread

#85, I'm 40 minutes into 1933's "Cavalcade," which won Best Picture.

Depicting the life and times of a London family through the first 33 years of the 1900s, it's actually pretty good?

Show thread

Look, the thing I actually want is to know more about the Legend of Curly's Gold, but what kind of fool just skips straight to the sequel?

#86 is 1991's "City Slickers," which I know nothing about except that I guess Curly's Gold doesn't come up until 1994.

Show thread

I've had lunch and am 15 minutes into 1994's "City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold."

* Curly is the cowboy who died in the first one.
* He did seem like the type to have a legend about his gold.

Show thread

#88. I have no idea what 2010's "Remember Me" is about, what genre it is, or anything -- I just know that there's what I imagine must be an absurd last-minute twist that it's set on 9/11 and that Robert Pattinson is

in the wrong place

at the wrong time.

Show thread

#91, I've got a soft pretzel and 1999's "The World Is Not Enough," let's go.

I think in this one James Bond shoots some people.

Show thread

#92. While doing other things, I watched the Blumhouse "Fantasy Island" that I skipped in theatres earlier this year.

It was pretty stupid! But in that fun way you gotta be in the mood for.

Show thread

#93. I'm about 15 minutes into 1933 Best Picture nominee "The Private Life of Henry VIII," and they've already executed the Queen of England.

Show thread

Who knows what Desert Bus is gonna do to watching a movie every day, so let's get another one in: #95, 2001's "Jurassic Park III," the one I was invited to three different birthday parties to see in the cinema when I was 10.

Show thread

#98, "Alien vs. Predator."

I imagine we're moving ever closer to the edge of where I still give a shit about either of these franchises.

Show thread

#99, or #200 since I started counting, 1997's "The Fifth Element."

I'm pretty sure this is
* in space.
* ridiculous.

Show thread

#100, 2003's "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."

I assume there's good robots and evil robots and a future of some kind.

Show thread

I've put too much time into putting this together not to, so I guess #101: I'm watching 2015's "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2," with this year's episode of "Til Death Do Us Blart" on top.

I have, obviously, come on now, not seen "Paul Blart Mall Cop."

Show thread

Movie #102, 1997's "Mouse Hunt," or, basically just "Home Alone," if the house were bigger, the target were smaller, and the film opened with a dead body being flung into the sewers.

Show thread

#103, 2020's "On the Rocks."

No idea what it's about, but it's Bill Murray in a Sofia Coppola film, that ought-a at least be pretty watchable.

Show thread

#104, 2000's "O Brother, Where Art Thou?".

Reliably informed it's loosely based on The Odyssey, but that doesn't mean I know what it's about.

@Alexis it's an elaborate music video.

@Alexis as an elaborate music video, I'm not sure if it's better than or worse than Thor: Ragnarok. It's a tough comparison, and both are good in their own ways.

@zatnosk I'm far enough in now that I get the joke!

I expect this'll be the better music video, honestly.
