83 And Possibly Out!: Part 18

I’ve been away from blogging for the past month, give or take, as I’ve been busy relocating within the Tarheel State. But now I’m back to both blogging about Two ThouCentennial activity and blogging in general, with “in general” resuming yesterday on the Tats What’s Up! page.

Of course, this entry is a Two ThouCentennial activity entry. And my oh my, I surely have a lot of that particular activity to fill you all in on, as I have exactly three weeks of it to unpack. And as always, you can find out what the movies were and what their fates are via the chart below:

*****Denotes movies that were a part of 83 And Possibly Out!: Part 1

MovieIts Fate Post-Assessment/Post-Re-Assessment
Starship Troopers 2: Hero Of The FederationRichard Burgi owned this movie as Drax to the point that it’s currently a Tier 4 movie.
Corporate AnimalsThis movie is worse than Palm Springs, therefore it’s on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, despite the presence of Nasim Pedrad.
Where The Red Fern Grows: Part IIThis movie is a lazy follow-up to its lackluster predecessor, which came out in 1974. It will be on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
Step Up 3The Step Up movies keep topping each other, thus this one being in Tier 4 right now.
New BloodIt’s the third worst movie on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
Get On The BusThis movie stagnated for the most part, which will most likely put it on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
Where The Red Fern Grows ‘03This movie is worse than the 1974 version.
The King’s DaughterAmazing visuals and the presence of Kaya Scodelario unfortunately cannot save a meandering story and a miscast Pierce Brosnan, despite the fact that this movie is better than Redeeming Love.
The Great Buck HowardThe novelty of being quirky completely wore off during its re-assessment.
Step Up RevolutionSee six spots above.
Rock The KasbahThis movie was expected to do poorly in making the Project anyways. And while it did do poorly in that regard, it’s better than Whisky Tango Foxtrot.
The Girl Next DoorThis movie is barely better than Road Trip, which isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement.
The Trouble With BlissThis movie is a horrible mash-up of the movie Liberal Arts and some Larry David-created show.
The Finest HoursThe chemistry, or lack thereof between Chris Pine and Holliday Grainger really set this movie up for failure.
What’s Your Number?This movie has Confessions Of A Shopaholic vibes, except this movie is way better than that movie. Plus, it does help that this movie was assessed a few hours before the DVD test run of the Saved By The Bell episode “The Prom”. 
Death To SmoochyIt’s the worst movie on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page. Plus, that fact is further compounded by being re-assessed a few hours after that DVD test run of that fantastic Saved By The Bell episode, known as The Prom.
Dingle, BarryThe titular character is unredeemable to the point of being beyond repair, thus having a negative trickle-down effect on this movie.
Don Juan DeMarcoThe character of the late Marlon Brando tries to live vicariously through Johnny Depp’s character, thus making this movie cringe. Plus, it doesn’t do a good job in letting us know if Depp’s character was telling the truth or not.
American Pie Presents: The Naked MileAll it had to do was be better than American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules, which it clearly was during its assessment. Now it’s in Tier 4.
Uncle SamOut of this movie, My Antonia and the next movie in this chart, it’s the best Anne Tremko movie. Now it just needs quite a few Tier 12 to fail their assessments.
The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes ‘95This is the next movie in this chart, but it won’t make the Project, on the basis of Kirk Cameron’s character being totally obnoxious.
The Mambo KingsArmand Assante and Antonio Banderas were perfectly paired together as The Castillo Brothers, this movie gives Talisa Soto a second movie for the Project and the late Roscoe Lee Browne steals the show as Fernando Perez. However, it’s also in the same exact boat as Uncle Sam.
Jerry And Marge Go LargeThe artistic liberties of messing around with the timeline of the actual events that this movie is based on stops it dead in its tracks.
Hunter Killer*****Of the five movies that were assessed/re-assessed after the episode “The Prom” since December 17, 2021, this movie is the best of those five. However, it’s also a boring movie with a miscast Gerard Butler.
BenjiThis movie’s repetitious first few minutes doom it early on, but it shows some much-needed variance as it progresses. But that might not be enough for it to the make the Project.
Captain America: The Winter SoldierIt’s better than Captain America: The First Avenger, which is a Tier 3 movie.
Love AffairThis movie gives Warren Beatty a legitimate chance at having something of his make the Project, along with assuring that Carey Lowell doesn’t have a higher Two ThouCentennial ranking average than the likes of Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Anna Camp. However, it’s also in the same exact boat as both Uncle Sam and The Mambo Kings.
Poker NightThe flashbacks buried in more flashbacks aspect of this movie ruins its pacing. Plus, it’s worse than People You May Know, as both it and that movie are Halston Sage movies.
The Water Diviner*****The intent of this movie is good, but it’s also boring unfortunately.
Duck Duck GooseJim Gaffigan went the Kevin Hart route of trying to do voice work in multiple movies. But unlike Hart and his two turns as Snowball The Bunny in The Secret Life Of Pets movies, Gaffigan is nothing but a failure in voice roles for movies, although this movie is better than Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation and Playmobil: The Movie.

Alright, so if you all kept count during the reading of that very long chart, that’s 30 movies that were assessed/re-assessed in exactly three weeks and nearly a third of them (8) have either passed their assessments or have the inside track at getting one sixth (3) of the 18 Two ThouCentennial spots that are up for grabs. And given that this enty’s documented activity is a larger equivalent of what was documented in 83 And Possibly Out!: Part 17, it’s evident that some more good has come out of a quantity as massive as this one.

Well, that does it for this week’s recap of Two ThouCentennial activity. Tune in next week to find out what the next round of activity entails.
