Cutdown Candidates

Ever since the official launch of the Land Of Infusion era, there has been an interesting distribution of successful assessments/re-assessments (160), likely successful assessments/re-assessments (13), obvious failed assessments/re-assessments (79), movies in limbo (30) and movies hanging by a thread (20).

Of course, both that reason and the constant additions of assessments/re-assessments have been serious drains on the aforementioned Land Of Infusion era moving forward. And with movies such as Aquaman 2 and Minions: The Rise Of Gru lurking in the next couple of years, the logjam will continue.

But what if there was a way to loosen up the logjam to ensure more assessments of fresher talent?

Well look no further, as this page provides the answer in the form of a list of movies that are not completely ruled out from the Two Thous-Ton Project yet won’t be missed if they don’t make the cut.

Currently, twenty movies are on this page, with the likelihood of being cut ranking from top (1) to bottom (20).

The movie and its reason(s) for possible banishment are listed via the numbers and bold text below.

  1. Strays. Why it could be cut: Once a better TK Kirkland movie is worthy of Project consideration, then this one will be cut after such a scenario happens.
  2. La mujer de mi hermano. Why it could be cut: Once Barbara Mori and Manolo Cardona each have better movies that are worthy of Project consideration, then this one will be cut shortly after such a scenario happens.
  3. G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra. Why it could be cut: The only thing saving this movie is Rachel Nichols as Scarlett. Otherwise, it would be cut already. What will really save this movie from being cut is how well that its sequel does.
  4. Holy Rollers. Why it could be cut: This movie could be a non-guaranteed Two Thous-Ton movie on The Farm Squad, a tentative guaranteed movie on the Fight For The Final 25 page and a movie that will constantly be up and down on the Demoted, But Could Be Designated To Return page. It has quite an odyssey ahead, starting with a plot investigation.
  5. Reprisal. Why it could be cut: Olivia Culpo is a little wooden in this movie and that’s even more evident now, following the assessment of The Swing Of Things. Plus, it’s hard to buy her as Frank Grillo’s wife in this movie. The only thing that can save this movie, however, is that Bruce Willis is vintage Bruce Willis.
  6. Vampire Academy. Why it could be cut: Oscar The Cat dying somewhat hurts this movie’s case in making the Project the way that the dog deaths hurt the cases for Panther ’95, Cut Throat City and Empire State. Plus, the open-ended ending gives this movie an incomplete feel to it. However, it’s also ending is somewhat similar to Piranha 3DD, an Evaluation Pool movie and there’s been debate about whether this movie has the potential to outrank that movie. Plus, this movie gives Gabriel Byrne a movie of his in the Project, along with the fact that there’s no such thing as too much Zoey Deutch in the Project. All told, this movie is going one of the biggest judgment calls in terms of it making the Project or not.
  7. Escape From New York. Why it could be cut: If Escape From L.A. passes its re-assessment, then this movie will move up to The Farm Squad.
  8. Last Man Standing. Why it could be cut: If it passes its plot investigation, then it could be added to The Farm Squad.
  9. Ghost Rider. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut as tied with the fate of its sequel.
  10. Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut as tied with the fate of its predecessor.
  11. Love & Basketball. Why it could be cut: It’s got a great cast, it’s the best movie on this page and it’s got a lot of great flow for the most. However, its lack of punch could lead to its return to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  12. Gone. Why it could be cut: Its pacing is too rushed at times and the ending is a little too open-ended, thus the latter leading to a plot investigation. However, if it passes that investigation, then it will make the Project.
  13. Learning To Drive. Why it could be cut: It’s a very uneven movie with its fate predicated on a judgment call.
  14. Get Shorty. Why it could be cut: If Be Cool (its sequel) doesn’t pass its re-assessment, then both this movie and that movie go back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  15. Old Dogs. Why it could be cut: The adult subtlety in a Disney movie is off-putting, Seth Green was cringe in this movie, this was unfortunately Bernie Mac’s last ever movie (posthumous release) and it has Lori Loughlin, an actress whom ranks right up there with Joy Bryant as actresses least deserving to have a Two Thous-Ton movie. However, the scenes involving man’s best friend (dog) and the penguins could save this movie from returning to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  16. Jarhead. Why it could be cut: The true story aspect of the movie and how the sequels connect to it will be investigated, thus its future in the Project being uncertain right now.
  17. Red Dawn ’84. Why it could be cut: The movie’s pacing is off in the beginning and meanders for a little while after that. However, it gets better as it goes on and has a much more finished feel than the 2012 version, which will be re-assessed very soon.
  18. Enter The Dragon. Why it could be cut: Certain aspects of this movie need to be investigated in order for it to make the Project.
  19. Tall Tale. Why it could be cut: It’s in the same exact boat as Enter The Dragon.
  20. Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. Why it could be cut: It’s being investigated as a movie that’s either fiction or based on a true story. And should the investigation lean one way or the other, then it will either move up to The Farm Squad page or be added to the Confronting Congeniality tournament.
