#MovieThread, 2021 edition!
In 2020 I watched 101 movies from very early into first lockdown until August 11, and the another 138 between then and last night.
I did not do a formal thread for the first 101, but I did do one for the next 138: https://beepboop.one/@Alexis/104677806709308567
Today's movie, #1 of 2021, or #240 since I started counting, 1995's "Johnny Mnemonic," because I think I saw someone say it's set in 2021? A topical affair!
Movie #2, 2002's "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones," because exasperated sigh.
Movie #3, 1933 Best Picture nominee "Lady for a Day."
I thiiiink this one is about a homeless woman who gets to be posh for a day? We'll, uhhh, see how that goes.
Movie #4, 2020's "Let Them All Talk," which I understand is about Meryl Streep as a snooty Author going to America on the RMS Queen Mary 2. In 2019, obviously.
Movie #5, the 1933 "Little Women."
I've seen the 2019 one -- these women had better be the absolute goddamn tiniest women you ever did see.
Movie #6, 1934 Best Picture nominee "It Happened One Night."
I'm pretty sure this is the one romcoms, like. Come from. This is The Romcom.
Movie #7, 1934 Best Picture nominee, "The House of Rothschild," which, sigh, I imagine is about the family of European bankers, because what other Rothschilds are there.
's got Boris Karloff in it, I guess.
Movie #8, 2008's "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Extended cut again.
#9, "We Bought a Zoo," because I've been making fun of the title for nearly a full decade and it's on Disney+.
Movie #10, or #250 since I started counting, 2006's "The Prestige," or "Batman v. Wolverine: What if Stage Magic But Too Much."
Movie #11, 2011's "Zookeeper."
I do not know what this one is or is about.
Movie #12, 2017's "The Zookeeper's Wife."
I also don't know what this one is about, but from the Netflix thumbnail it looks like a WW2 movie.
(I think that's a reverse blarting.)
Movie #13, we move on from zoos to the jungle, where the animals are keeping a small human? Absolute madness.
It's 2016's live-action "The Jungle Book."
Movie #14, 1934 Best Picture nominee "Viva Villa!"
I'm pretty sure Wallace Beery is in brownface in this one. :/
Movie #15, 2010's "Four Lions." Terrorism comedy, I'm pretty sure.
Movie #16, 2017's "Boss Baby."
Movie #17, 1934's "The Thin Man."
I've heard good things.
Movie #18, 2015's "Trumbo," in which Bryan Cranston plays the sequel elephant to Dumbo.
#19, I kinda fell off the rewatch over the summer, but I've put 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming" on.
Sigh. #20, the 2020 "Mulan."
#21, 1934 Best Picture nominee "Here Comes the Navy," which is probably pretty blatant propaganda? Sigh, oh well.
#22, 2020's "The Kid Detective." Adam Brody plays the former titular getting thrown into a Real Case, I think?
@Alexis So Detective Pikachu without Pikachu?
@kurt Bit more Jewish, pretty sure nobody gets turned into any kind of animal, but yeah, basically.
@Alexis Wait, but Adam Brody is an adult.
@kurt Yeah, he's the titular former Kid Detective, wall full of newspaper clippings from when he was 12 and solved the case of the missing time capsule, the case of the missing fundraiser money, etcetera.
This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least.
Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
