32 Movies Get To ‘Jump’ At This Opportunity

When it comes to filling a vacated Catch-22 Hundred spot, I usually waste little to no time. However, that wasn’t the case with the vacated spot of White Men Can’t Jump ‘23, as I didn’t have enough time between then and my eventual assessment of Barbie (it’s officially on the Walrus 23 page) to really think it over. So, with the previous sentence being said, the question is, “How will I address this procrastination?”

Well, I was originally going to take 16 of the 23 movies that I deemed as adequate to very good and have them all compete single-elimination style in a four-round format, only for me to realize that seven of those movies were going to be unfairly left out. So instead, I’m going to amass nine more movies to field a group of 32, which will then lead to those 32 movies battling it out NIT style. And as to what that entails, well the 32 movies will be divided into four separate groups, with the winner of each group advancing to the Final Four, followed by the winner of the “East” vs. “Midwest” battle taking on the winner of the “South” vs. “West” battle. 

Alright, so the decision to compile a group of 32 movies has been separated into three different categories, with the first category being the 23 movies that have already been compiled. Of course, I have mentioned the 23 compiled movies via various avenues of content throughout the Art Infliction website, but I’ve never mentioned them as a whole until right now. So, with that being said, here are the 23 compiled movies via the numbered list below:

  1. The Blackening
  2. Kandahar
  3. Joy Ride
  4. La Bamba
  5. Frost/Nixon
  6. The Art Of Self-Defense
  7. Benji
  8. North Hollywood
  9. The Secret Of NIMH
  10. Sideways
  11. Tron Legacy
  12. The Wolf And The Lion
  13. The Invisible Man
  14. Jump Tomorrow
  15. Hustlers
  16. Richard Jewell
  17. The Frighteners
  18. A Night At The Roxbury
  19. The Frisco Kid
  20. Hail, Caeser!
  21. Penguins Of Madagascar
  22. Horizon Line
  23. Somewhere In Queens

Alright, so you just saw the first category. Now it’s time for the second category, which is two already assessed movies with stocks that are likely to rise. And as to what those two movies are, well they are The Banana Splits Movie and Addicted To Fresno. And as to why they have both been chosen to join the eventual group of 32, well in the case of the former of the two movies, it’s pretty comparable to Five Nights At Freddy’s, while the latter of the two movies has four reasons, which are 1] It’s the fourth movie to single out a specific Saved By The Bell character, 2] It’s got Aubrey Plaza, 3] The pet cemetery aspect is a powerful one and 4] Movies ending on the incarceration of the main character can succeed, as evidenced by the movies Blow and Flight.

Alright, so now the additions of both The Banana Splits Movie and Addicted To Fresno leave the last seven spots up for grabs, although five of those can round out pretty quickly with the anticipated successes of 50 To 1, Shot, Mulholland Drive, Dreamland and Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man. And with all of that being said, that leaves two more yet to be determined spots, although I’ve already decided what they will both be. And as to what they will both be, well they will both be The Butcher Boy and Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, due to Sinead O’Connor continuing to trend upwards. 

In summary, the amount of movies vying for what remains open in the Catch-22 Hundred Project is about to get crazy yet again because this group of 32 looks great on paper. But of course, the seven in category three all need to be assessed first, so we won’t know what the confirmed 32 will be until the last of those seven has been completed. And even then, there are no guarantees that any of those seven will pass their assessments. But I guess we’ll find out two days from now.

Stay tuned.
