#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.

#35, I'm about halfway through 2020 dead mall documentary "Jasper Mall."

I've put on #37, 2021's "The Dig."

Not sure what it's about, Ralph Fiennes is in it, set just before WW2, I'm pretty sure?

I've got it on Blu-Ray but I'm lazy so I've just got it on on Disney+ at my desk, #39, "Avengers: Infinity War."

Oh, right, it's Groundhog Day.

And so is mov-- musical #1, which I can't defend counting as a movie but I'm gonna thread for continuity's sake, anyway.

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‘

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.

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."

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.

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."

#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.

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

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."

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.

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.

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

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

#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.

#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."

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.

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.

#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.

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

I definitely do not believe Angelina Jolie can fly. Not buying it. Nice try, lads.

I feel like the original Sleeping Beauty probably did not have any big Lord of the Rings-style battlefield scenes in it.

is Maleficent's turn to evil here just fucking Kylo Ren's origin story again

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

good guy tries to kill you, now you have to go poison a princess about it, you know how it goes

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

"It's a girl! It's a girl!"

assigned poisoning victim at birth

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

i keep calling it a poisoning, but it's not, it's a curse with an eventual effect similar to a poisoning

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

nice baby you've got there, be a shame if something... happened to her on her 16th birthday specifically for some reason

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

It All Seemed Like a Good Idea At The Time. --Maleficent

🧚 "Maleficent" (2014) 

I get that it's the power of the curse drawing her to it, but the room full of spinning wheels is a /bit/ goofy.

@a_breakin_glass she's cursed to prick herself on one (1) spinning wheel on the day she turns 16 and then, totally coincidentally, happens to come across the room where the king kept all (all) the spinning wheels that were destroyed to prevent the curse coming true

never heard of recycling, I guess

@Alexis @a_breakin_glass I love this movie so goddamn much. Sharlto is good in anything.
