(or 560)

Never let anyone say I make good decisions.

It's 2014's "300: Rise of an Empire."

Leaving now to go see #302, or #561, 2021's "Halloween Kills," which, rude, that's /illegal/.

Let's watch something that, surely, can't possibly be about violence putting somebody's insides somewhere they oughtn't be, #303, or #562, it's 1938 Best Picture nominee "Alexander's Ragtime Band."

#304, or #563, skipping ahead slightly on Cage's career so I can listen to a podcast about this one, it's 2011's "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance."

#305, or #564, let's see what the deal is with 2000's "Final Destination," which I assume is called that because it definitely doesn't have four sequels.

#306, or #565, it's 2003's "Final Destination 2," you know, that sequel the first one definitely doesn't have.

From darkness to darkness, leaving now to go see "Venom: Let There Be Carnage." #307, #566.

#308, or #567, let's see what this dipshit is up to, it's 1985's "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge."

I'm tired of sitting here in the dark, so I'm leaving now to go sit in the dark somewhere else, for #309, or #568, 2021's "The French Dispatch."

#310, or #569, called it, it really is about trains because there's a rollercoaster on the poster, it's 2006's "Final Destination 3."

#311, or #570, it's 2009's "The Final Destination." The definitive article, and thus clearly, the last one-- What? There's a fifth one? Fuck me.

#312, or #571, it's 2011's "Final Destination 5," the *actual* final destina-- They were working on a sixth one before the pandemic? Truly, death is eternal.

#313, or #572, there's really never a time when I'm, like, hell yeah, let's watch this 1937 French war film, but okay, it's 1937 Best Picture nominee "La Grande Illusion."

#314, or #573, no idea what this one's about, I think Kubrick developed this one and Spielberg made it, it's 2001's "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."

#315, or #574, 2010's "Stonehenge Apocalypse," whatever that's about.

#316, or #575, 2016's "Train to Busan." What're the odds it'll actually get to Busan?

#317, or #576, 2020's "The Wolf of Snow Hollow." No idea what this one's about, but the internet says it's a comedy, presumably there's snow, a werewolf, small town shenanigans.

#319, or #578, it's 2019's "It: Chapter Two," or "Clowntown 2: Return of the Clown to Town."

#320, or #579, spooky season lives on, because I kinda took a break in the middle and I have some horror left I was gonna watch, it's 2003's "One Missed Call."

#321, or #580, 2013's "Warm Bodies," which I think is a zombie thing, :beecat: called it "hipstery," and I think it was all over Tumblr for a little bit when it came out?

Already seated for #322, or #581, 2021's greyest film, "Eternals."

Already seated for #323, or #582, 2021's "Last Night in Soho." More like Lunchtime in Soho.

Leaving now to go see #324, or #583, because it's finally playing in theatres here, 2021's "Pig."

More leftovers from spoopy season, #325, or #584, it's 2007's "Halloween," the second of three movies called just that, but this one's a reboot and not in continuity with the other two, which *are* in continuity with each other.

#326, or #585, let's see how much more unpleasant this gets, it's 2009's "Halloween II."

I did genuinely like "Army of the Dead," so #327, or #586, 2021's "Army of Thieves."

Already seated for #329, or #588, 2021's "Spencer."

Do I give a single shit about Princess Diana? Not even half of one. Will I watch Kristen Stewart pretend to be her for two hours? Yes, please, absolutely.

#330, or #589, 2008's "Synechdoche, New York," whatever that's about. Misspellings, presumably.

#331, or #590, 1987's "Planes, Trains & Automobiles." No boats, tanks, or spaceships allowed.

Leaving now for #332, or #591, first movie since the start of Desert Bus, it's 2021's β–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆβ–ˆ. I don't know!

Because it's a Sneak Preview screening, where they show a movie early that's coming out give or take this week or next week.

Best guesses poll:

#333, or #592, 1988's "Midnight Run," because it came up a few times in Letterboxd reviews of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles," and I figured, well, why not.

Gotta pick the List back up, it's one of the last two Christopher Nolan movies I haven't seen, #334, or #593, 2002's "Insomnia."

We Cage ever onwards, the year is 2002, it's John Woo's "Windtalkers," which I think is about WW2 Navajo code talkers, and which I reckon is probably pretty violent? #335, or #594.

#337, or #596, I think this is the first movie I was aware of as a kid that everyone seemed to be Talking About, but then the commercials seemed very scary to 11-year old me, it's 2002's "Signs."

I don't remember what the twist in this one is supposed to be, so nobody tell me.

It can't just be "it's aliens," I feel like that's the premise.

πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

"Some show's on every station."

Okay, I feel like crop circles, even worldwide similar ones, wouldn't get total media blackout news attention.

"How can so many people be in on it?"

*gestures at the internet* people do be like that, actually


πŸ‘½ "Signs" (2002) 

@Alexis I dunno, remember when a bunch of people dressed as clowns at the same time and everyone went on about it?

@kurt Hm, that's a good point, I forgot about horror- and terror-clowns.
