Back to movies, it's #40, 1934 Best Picture nominee "One Night of Love," which I'm pretty sure is:
* a musical rom-com
* only on the list for technical sound recording achievements that will be completely opaque to me because my copy is Pretty Bad πŸ‘

Show thread

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is the musical, which I'm currently listening to. No pictures, but way better audio quality. Still very good.

Show thread

In the category of "movies I downloaded but now can no longer remember why and I refuse to google it before I commit," #41, 2012's "Seven Psychopaths."

Show thread

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #42, except this time I lazily edited it so there's no time loop and Phil Connors just turns into a good person overnight for no reason.

#43, I watched "In & of Itself," a film of a series of storytelling/magic stage performances.

Jeez. Dang.

Show thread

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #44, though this time it's an experimental German thriller, because I'm watching 1998's "Lola rennt," commonly known in English as "Run Lola Run."

Show thread

#45, 2019's "Captain Marvel."

I keep going "I don't think I've seen this one since it came out" but 2019 isn't that long ago.

Show thread

#47, YouTuber/Uber driver/serial murderer horror movie "Spree," because apparently I'll watch any old shite.

Show thread

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #48, except this time it's a different side of the US, a different time of year, a wedding instead of a holiday, and came out in 2020, in that I'm watching "Palm Springs."

Show thread

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is movie #49, except this time the loops go in reverse order, which was @thiskurt's idea.

Show thread

Turns out Groundhog Day was yesterday.

#50, "È già ieri," or "Stork Day," a 2004 Italian remake of "Groundhog Day" that I couldn't find subtitles for, but, like, I'll figure out, I'm sure.

Show thread

Oh, right, it's not Groundhog Day. Like, at all. Not even close.

#51, 2018's "Ant-Man and the Wasp."

Show thread

#52, 2021's "Willy's Wonderland," a film made by people who could get Nic Cage but not the "Five Nights at Freddy's" rights.

Show thread

#53, I saw somebody describe this as a Groundhog Day loop movie so I grabbed it without looking into it at all. The thumbnail of the poster made it look like a teen romcom.

2021's "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things."

Show thread

Motion picture movie yes? It's #54, 2000's "Cast Away," because like twelve things reminded me of it this week.

I don't think I've ever seen it in full, though, just, like, in bits on TV.

Show thread

To complete the trilogy of movies about Tom Hanks being stuck in places ("The Terminal," stuck in an airport, "Cast Away," stuck on an island) it's #55, 1986's "The Money Pit" in which Hanks is stuck, possibly /in/ a house, possibly /with/ a house, but at /least/ stuck in a hole.

Show thread

#56, 2021's "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar."

No idea what this is about besides, presumably, both Barb and Star going to somewhere called Vista Del Mar.

Saw it get good reviews, it has Kristen Wiig in it, and I'll watch her have a nervous breakdown in pretty much anything.

Show thread

#57, 2014 Disney live-action "Sleeping Beauty" spin-off "Maleficent," just in case 2021's "Cruella" drags this into a Kingdom Hearts Cinematic Multiverse.

Show thread

#58, 2019's "Avengers: Endgame," because let's just get this rewatch over with.

Show thread

#59, or #297 since I started counting, 2016's "Army of One," because I'm always up for Nic Cage and Friz made it sound interestingly weird:

#60, or #298 since I started counting, "Spider-Man: Far From Home," or "The One Where Spider-Man Has Access to An Arsenal of Military-Grade Weapons for Some Reason."

(I mean, I like this one, but.)

Playing the Blip for laughs is the right call for /this one/, but I really hope we get another couple different angles on it from the next few movies and shows.

Americans seem to find the idea of Europe very exciting primarily on the basis of it being on the other side of a large body of water.

weird that it's been nearly two years since this one and it's still the most recent one when they were just ramping up to three a year

and then in 2021 it's just, I don't think we go four weeks in a row without /something/ new

that break is also why it feels like they've been poking at the multiverse for ages when it's really only been one (1) film and one (1) tv show

(and also Agents of SHIELD goofed around with it, but, I mean, that's Agents of SHIELD)

Show thread

:spidey: "Spider-Man: Far From Home" (2019) 

Agents of SHIELD also tried to make the Inhumans happen, which went, you know, famously well

"Oh, no, it's actually a European rip-off version of him."

@Alexis I think it was too early in the aftermath of the Disney/FOX sale when this was released. Also I think it might have been Marvel covering their bases if something unforeseen happened that destroyed the sale. I remember Comcast wanted to prevent the sale offering Murdoch an all cash deal in exchange for 21st Century FOX.
