#MovieThread starts here.
Today's film, #1, 1984's "The Terminator," because they're showing T2 at the movie theatre this week and it probably works better if I've seen T1 recently.
Today's film, #2, "Promare." No idea what this one's about but the animation looks cool.
Tonight's film, #3! 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"! In the movie theatre, so: I'll be back?
Tonight's film, #4! A friend on the other website is making me watch "Christine," which I understand to be "what if Duel but it's demons or some shit."
This kind of thing works better for me on the TV, so see y'all in two hours.
Today's film! #5, 1932 Best Picture nominee "Smilin' Through."
I've deffo looked at the Wikipedia page, but no idea what this one's about.
Movie #6! I watched spoopy zoom call horror movie "Host."
I don't watch a lotta these by pretty much any definition of "these," but, I dunno, at 56 minutes, pretty efficient use of all parts of the cliché buffalo.
Tonight's film, movie #7! Ripped from the headlines, it's 1932 Best Picture nominee "I Am A Fugitive From a Chain Gang."
...Finally, one I feel like I can safely assume is exactly what it says on the tin.
I forgot to thread, but movie #9 in #MovieThread is "Toy Story." https://beepboop.one/@Alexis/104722204163664976
Movie #10: I think Tarantino probably sucks, but people won't shut up about him, so I'm heading out to go see the first half of Kill Bill in the cinema.
Movie #11: I've got 2019's "The Assistant" on -- trying to clear out some stuff from early in the pandemic.
God, what a relentless, crushing slog. Which I imagine is the point! As such, success? (Cripes, oh cripes.)
Movie #12: This spring's "Underwater," because I'll watch Kristen Stewart fight a Cthulhu, sure.
Tonight's movie, #13, "An American Pickle."
Seth Rogen is watchable enough, and I love a pickle, I assume that averages out to something I'll enjoy.
Movie #14: 1973's "Live and Let Die." Third Bond in a row with a different face than the last one, let's see how this one does.
I've put on movie #15: 1974's "The Man with the Golden Gun," a film that sure appears to open with a Sir Christopher Lee third nipple reveal.
More clearing out of my downloads folder, movie #16: 2008 political dramedy "Swing Vote," which I think is about Kevin Costner somehow getting to cast the One Vote the (fictionalised) 2008 election hangs on.
My downloads folder may or may not be a graveyard of bad decisions.
This is Very 2008, and also, about a kid committing some Whimsical Voter Fraud.
This is not how Any Of This works.
Stanley Tucci and Nathan Lane play each candidate's campaign guy and is there a movie where Stanley Tucci and Nathan Lane just bicker with each other for two hours, because I'd watch that.
I feel like the only Good Ending here is he spoils his ballot or votes for the Libertarians or somethin',
but this is all so "this Real American doesn't care about politics," there's no way the ending isn't that it cuts to black just as he's about to vote.
@Alexis I vote for cut to black.
@kurt Cut to black/Credits roll 2020.
This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least.
Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
