Flickasbord, Volume 42 

**Note: The following content has adult wording. Discretion is advised

Following the assessment of “Murder By Numbers”, additional clearing of Tier 8 has slightly increased yet nothing else has landed in Tier 11, as both “Julie & Julia” and “Paid In Full” went back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, following their re-assessments. Of course, “House Of The Dead 2” remains in Flickuum contention, following its assessment. However, the unknown fate of Alex, along with 1) “Dead & Deader” a.k.a. the third “House Of The Dead” installment possibly not acknowledging the events of its predecessor, and 2) The confirmed fate of Nadine Velazquez’s character in that second installment, could all really jeopardize that status. Stay tuned.

Even before I made my decision to permanently ban “Paid In Full” from The Flickuum Project, I looked up the filmography of the late Ron Cephus Jones to see if I could find something to rid myself of the disappointment of him appearing in that movie. And sure enough, I found something that I know will be better, in the form of “Glass Chin”. And as to why I know that that movie will be better than the aforementioned “Paid In Full”, well A) It’s got a noirish quality about it, B) I’m always looking for those types of movies, and C) It has the smoke show that is Elizabeth Rodriguez. So, given all of that, plus wanting to rid my mind of the aforementioned “Paid In Full”, I decided to add the 2014 movie to current roster of assessments/re-assessments, and with the intent of assessing it ASAP.

I did say that I was going to option “The Biscuit Eater” as a “non-essential” re-assessment for the 2,101 through 2,200 selection protocol. But the 1972 movie needs to pair up with a movie that has an “eye candy” appeal actress for its re-assessment, and neither “Sling Blade” nor “Airheads” has that type of actress in their respective casts. But there is no shortage of that type of appeal in “The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare”, “My Sister”, “Endless Love”, “Glass Chin”, “Abigail”, “Boy Kills World” and “In The Time Of The Butterflies”. And given that those seven movies will be assessed/re-assessed between now and May 6, I’ve decided to include the aforementioned 1972 movie in the foreseeable assessment/re-assessment schedule.

And finally, four more 2024 movies (plus one 2023 movie) will join an already stacked group of 2023 through 2025 movies for what will be a dynamic assembly of movies for spots 2,201 through 2,300. And since there are five, I’ll reveal which ones that they are via the typical chart format:

MovieWhy it’s been added to the 2023 through 2025 movies group
TarotUnlike Nobody, this movie gives Humberly Gonzalez a much more substantial role.
Young Woman And The SeaDisney sports movies based on true stories are a mixed bag, as for every trifecta of “Cool Runnings”, “McFarland, USA” and “Miracle”, there is a disappointing trio of “The Perfect Game”, “Invincible” and “The Rookie”. But none of the latter three had Daisy Ridley, whereas this movie does, thus her presence could very well put this movie in the same breath as the former three movies.
Late Night With The DevilThe 1970s themselves had a lot of gritty movies, and this potentially gritty one helps its own cause via the fact that it takes place in 1977.
Sasquatch SunsetThe fact that the gorgeous Riley Keough is in a Sasquatch costume for this entire movie seemingly makes it unappealing. But due to my opinion of Sasquatches being cool, this movie will get an assessment.
Hit ManAdria Arjona has just one Flickuum movie and she’s way too radiant to have just one such movie. This one could make it two, as she’s radiant as all get out in it.

Well, I have a lot of potentially dynamic movies at my fingertips for the 2,101 through 2,200 selection protocol and I look to redeem myself with quite a few of them, following the back-to-back duds of “Julie & Julia” and “Paid In Full”.

Until the next time.
