#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.

#9, "We Bought a Zoo," because I've been making fun of the title for nearly a full decade and it's on Disney+.

this motion picture about a family who Buys a Zoo plays the fact that the house they're buying comes with the titular Zoo as a reveal

@Alexis also, if this film were a 2020 YouTube video it would instead have a clickbait title. "We Bought a House but We Didn't Expect There to be a Zoo?!?!?!"

@The_T I almost feel like it wouldn't even mention the zoo, and just be titled "We Bought a House and Got a HUGE Surprise"

@Alexis you're right; I think mine was more of a Light Novel title actually
