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 clichΓ© 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.

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.

@Alexis I wonder if they credit Asimov... (at least, I think the short story i have in mind was his)

@Alexis no, they didn't, at least per IMDb. Franchise, 1955, even set in 2008.

@naga Yeah, I just looked it up, too. It's not the weirdest premise.
