Flickasbord, Volume 49

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

For a good portion of Tuesday, I second guessed my decision to put both “Sister” and “Moving McAllister” on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, as A) I was already starting to miss Nadine Velazquez movies and B) I want to get a better sense of the latter of the two movies, due to me falling asleep for quite a bit of it. So, with all of that being said, I’ve pardoned them both for re-assessment, due to them possibly being a good tandem back-to-back, along with the former having the potential to outrank “Blast” and the latter having a pet pig that’s so cute that she reminds me of my dog. And of course, like most pardons from the aforementioned Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, it has to be an even trade, so I’ve put “When Jeff Tried To Save The World” and “The Contractor” on the aforementioned Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page in exchange for the former two movies getting re-assessed.

The movie “Drop Zone” is the type of movie that is riddled with questions, such as A] The late Mickey Jones appearing in this movie during the same year (1994) as him appearing in “Saved By The Bell: Wedding In Las Vegas” and afterwards at that, B] The believability of Malcolm Jamal Warner playing a U.S. Marshal, C] The plot trying to be way more elaborate than it really is and D] Wesley Snipes appearing in what is an inferior version of “Passenger 57”. Alright, now that I think of it all, I can do without this 1994 movie in The Project, thus I have decided to revoke its overall guaranteed Flickuum spot, followed by both expediting “The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain” from Tier 7 to Tier 4 and pardoning “Tusk” from the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page in exchange for this generic 1994 action movie.

Well, no need to option “Challengers” as a 2,201 through 2,215 movie because the time period-jumping was totally aggravating and the ending was too emotionally imbalanced. So, with that being said, that movie will be sent to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, followed by a movie to be named later getting the first post-Tier 11 spot. Stay tuned.

Survival against twisted host type movies are a damn good time, as “The Menu” proved just that. And while I’d be perfectly content to have only that movie fit that specific bill for The Project, you will not hear me complain about that niche category doubling down, as the trailer for the new movie “Blink Twice” gave off those same vibes. And not only did that movie give off those same vibes because in addition, Adria Arjona looks like a total smoke show in that trailer, thus an added bonus in the Zoe Kravitz-directed movie. Yes, it will totally be another addition to my 2024 theatrical tour.

And finally, I’ve been back and forth about what to do with “Apocalypse Now” for The Project, as A] I questioned its fit with “Platoon” and “The Deer Hunter” in The Project, B] I jokingly called it “Napocalypse Now” for it being a movie that could be as boring as “Anthropoid” and C] The movie’s past obsession of releasing three additional versions of it unfortunately takes a “more is less” approach, which really overshadows the original version. So, because of all three points, the Francis Ford Coppola movie will have its overall guaranteed Flickuum spot revoked, followed by “The Mack” being expedited from Tier 7 to Tier 4.

Well, now that I’ve revised my entire strategy in knocking out Tier 8 and Tier 10 movies, I can look to May 20 as the day that Flickuum evaluations will resume since I have a much more feasible schedule. And given that “Sister” is back in the fold as a re-assessment, I can feel even more galvanized in knocking out all these assessments/re-assessments.

Until the next time.
