#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?
Let's watch another one, I wanna stay at one a day, #23, 2020's "Black Bear."
No idea what it's about, Aubrey Plaza's in it.
@Alexis good start!
@naga yeah, can never be /all/ bad, can it
