Catching The Rest Of The 22-Hundred, The Color-Coded Version 

**Note: Most of this entry was written before the afternoon of February 7, 2024, therefore it’s a little outdated

Now that the domino of “Christopher Robin” has finally fallen, the movies that are slated for official overall guaranteed Flickuum spots 2,101 through 2,170 are finally ready to go and will be allocated to the next three Flickuum selection protocols. But more on that starting Leap Day, as this entry is a somewhat rehashed and more definitive version of “Catching The Rest Of The 22-Hundred”, via it focusing on the 30 movies that have the right to get spots 2,171 through 2,200 of The Project. And not only will this entry focus on those 30 movies because in addition, those 30 movies (plus four others) will be divided into four categories, with them being Surefire New Year’s Day 2025 Deadline BeatersFringe New Year’s Day 2025 Deadline BeatersDoomed To Fail and 100 Stand Pending. Furthermore, all 34 movies are ranked, with number one being the one that I’m most confident in and number thirty four being the one that I’m least confident in, and they can be seen via the list below:

  1. Despicable Me 2
  2. Arthur The King
  3. Ballerina
  4. Bad Boys 4
  5. Inside Out 2
  6. The Garfield Movie
  7. IF
  8. Abigail
  9. The Fall Guy
  10. The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare
  11. Monkey Man
  12. Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire
  13. Kung Fu Panda 4
  14. Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes
  15. Love Lies Bleeding
  16. Drive-Away Dolls
  17. Imaginary
  18. Argylle
  19. Deadpool 3
  20. Lisa Frankenstein
  21. Your Monster
  22. Juror #2
  23. Joker: Folie A Deux
  24. Beetlejuice 2
  25. Bob Marley: One Love
  26. The Hill
  27. Sound Of Freedom
  28. See You On Venus
  29. Challengers
  30. The Retirement Plan
  31. Past Lives
  32. Napoleon
  33. The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes
  34. Night Swim

Alright, so there are some key things that I want to point out about my color-coded list, with the first one being that numbers 21 through 24 are highlighted in grey, due to the combination of A] No known non-Sundance Film Festival accessibility for “Your Monster”, B]  No United States wide release date for “Juror #2” and C] The question of when pre-order listings will be made known for both “Beetlejuice 2” and “Joker: Folie A Deux”. Otherwise, those four movies would all probably be in between “Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes” and “Love Lies Bleeding”. Second, some of the movies on the list above are 2023 releases, as there’s somewhat of a shortage of 2024 movies that can potentially beat the deadline. Third, numbers 31 through 34 are the alternative options to numbers 21 through 24 and could be assessed in place of them before the aforementioned deadline. Fourth, “Gladiator 2”, “Sonic The Hedgehog 3” and “Mufasa: The Lion King” are all noticeably absent from the list above because their pre-order listings might come after the aforementioned deadline, therefore they are most likely ineligible for March Madness style tournament play. And fifth, movies such as “All The World Is Sleeping” and “The Charnel House” each have a chance to get into the 2,171 through 2,200 group this week, due to four movies in the 25 through 30 range currently being accessible to assess. However, one of those two movies (All The World Is Sleeping, The Charnel House) could get their spot as early as tomorrow if Argylle doesn’t wow in its assessment.
