#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: beepboop.one/@Alexis/104677806

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.

Nobody's gotta explain chronological order or nothin' to me, I've seen all this before and I'm just sticking to release order because that's what the podcast I'm watching along with is doing.

@The_T If I recall correctly, Austin's rationale was, one, that's how the Average Viewer would have experienced Clone Wars, two, just hitting play on the next one on Disney+ is easier.

@Alexis average viewers... those monsters...

idea for Doctor Who reading order podcast: every time there is a new release, we would record an episode for it and slot it into the podcast feed in a position relative to prior podcast episodes

@The_T it's not their fault, they don't know what they're missing...!

my idea for a Doctor Who podcast was, swap out the hosts when the cast changes, so, Susan leaves, so does the "Susan" host, Vicki shows up, you get a new fourth host in, etc.


@Alexis ...I would end up leaving so early then...

@The_T Yeah, it's more a Large Group Project that I don't exactly have a Large Group for.

@Alexis seems like a fool's errand and also I want to be in every episode

@Alexis for most serials, I could only talk about the first and last episode of the serial.

@The_T look, have I thought this all the way through? absolutely not.
