Flickasbord, Volume 38

The ruling of no more purging within the 2,100 overall guaranteed Flickuum movies has not yet been made official, thus once again triggering the blasphemy of Sydney Sweeney’s “Anyone But You” character. But come tonight, the running quote will be a moot point no matter what, as three expedient moves have already been made to keep the 2,100 intact. Let’s begin.

First up, in the first of those three expedient moves, “Evolution” has been expedited from Tier 5 to Tier 4 to replace “Grand Isle”, as A] The latter of the two is a movie in which Nicolas Cage isn’t convincing as a main antagonist, and B] The ending is a cross between the endings of the Dianna Agron movie “Bold Native” and the Danny Glover movie “Consumed”, except a badly rushed one, thus the 2019 movie has landed on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page. And since the aforementioned “Evolution” is an overall guaranteed Flickuum movie replacing another, “Nearing Grace” has been placed in Tier 5, following its assessment.

In the second of those expedient moves, “The Creator” has been placed in Tier 4, following its re-assessment, to replace (at least temporarily) “Grow House”, due to the latter having the common thread of “Grand Isle” also being a Zulay Henao movie. However, the former of those two Zulay Henao movies will be re-assessed tonight, thus it could return to The Project.

Movies that break the fourth wall via a music video just seem out of place, as that was the case with the Paul Rudd-Amy Poehler movie “They Came Together”. And now you can add “Mac & Devin Go To High School” to that category, despite Snoop Dogg doing the commendable thing of having the 2012 movie dedicated to the late Nate Dogg. But that aside, the out of place music video, along with both the way that certain characters were written and the periodic cutting to Mystikal’s character “Slow Burn”, really stunt this movie’s progress. So, because of those three components, the Snoop Dogg-Wiz Khalifa collaboration has joined “Grand Isle” on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, followed by the remake of “The Longest Yard” being expedited from Tier 4 to Tier 3 and “Frost/Nixon” being expedited from Tier 7 to Tier 4. And speaking of “Frost/Nixon”, it oddly enough formed a great tandem with “Good Luck Chuck” back in November 2020 to the point that the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page has traded the Dane Cook-Jessica Alba movie to Tier 7 for “They Came Together”.

And finally, in another blog entry item pertaining to “The Creator”, I almost put it on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page because I thought that movie was up its own ass. But after A] Being able to buy the plotline of space shuttle travel being a replacement for airplane travel in the year 2070, and B] Finding plausibility with Alphie’s ability to locate the replica of Maya, I of course decided to place the John David Washington-led movie in Tier 4. Plus, this movie has way too many other factors in its favor, thus proving that it has “nowhere but The Flickuum” quality about it.

Alright, it’s time to add to Tier 11 some more, as I have the last hour of “Forbidden Planet” still to complete and I think that it can outrank “Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers”, the latter of which is a Tier 2 movie. Stay tuned.

Until the next time.
