#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+.
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
if the house i was buying came with a lion, i would not be buying that house
@Alexis for half a second I was very confused and thought you were announcing you were buying a house
@The_T i thoroughly checked this apartment for lions before my pen ever came near the rent contract
@Alexis my apartment has a no-pet policy so I'm constantly disappointed there are no lions
@benk @Alexis I originally just wrote "no-cat policy". but idc, cats are cats
