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.
#24, the 2014 "Godzilla."
#25, I watched "Disintegration Loop 1.1"
#26, 2017's "Kong: Skull Island."
I did initially intend to go see this at the time, but I found the Vietnam aesthetic of the trailers off-putting? We'll see.
#27, 2019's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters."
skreeeonk and all that
#28, I just grabbed some movies that I saw on multiple Oscar shortlists, I'm watching 2020's "News of the World," which I think has America's Finest Actor Tom Hanks in it?
#29, 2017's "Thor: Ragnarok," on the TV because the Blu-Ray was five bucks in the discount bookstore last year.
#30, 2021 motion picture "Psycho Goreman," which is about, I think, a kid who gets control of a sci-fi monster man?
#31, 2015's "The Intern," in which I assume Robert de Niro teaches his dumb millennial boss (Anne Hathaway?) to slow down a little? Something like that, I'm sure.
#32, I'm about halfway through 2016 found footage documentary "Dawson City: Frozen Time."
It's movie! 1934's "Cleopatra," #33.
I'm pretty sure I've heard this one is notable mostly for pushing the limits before the Hays Code starts getting enforced? We'll see.
Oh, that's right, it's Groundhog Day.
And so is movie #34!
#35, I'm about halfway through 2020 dead mall documentary "Jasper Mall."
And so is movie #36.
This time I'm watching it in black-white-and-blue.
I was gonna just set it to black-and-white but VLC has a colour threshold setting.
"Good guess! You know what, I think that actually /is/ the first day of spring!"
a funny coincidence
⏲️ "Groundhog Day" (1993) Show more
does Phil even have a sister called Mary Pat
you know, "Groundhog Day," the art film
i mean, pretty much anything is gonna be kinda striking in black-and-white with one colour
@Alexis yeah, just as an example, look at a Star Wars Stormtrooper
@The_T you add an element of one colour to any of those suits, boom, always looks terrific
@Alexis yeah! as an example... the TIE Pilot suit!
