The Tentative Roster

On August 12, 2022, the 1,512th spot was filled in the Two ThouCentennial Project and some of those overall 1,512 movies can be seen via the Two ThouCentennial page, along with both the Evaluation Pool Rankings Board via Tier 2 of the Land Of Infusion page and the Set To Join list via Tier 3 of the Land Of Infusion page. And of course, various methods will be used in filling the remaining 588 open spots for the Two ThouCentennial Project.

Now you might be wondering “Why is this page named The Tentative Roster?” Well, I’ve decided to store all movies that are awaiting advancement to Tier 5, as well as movies that are non-guaranteed tentative Two Thous-Ton movies and movies that are in danger of not making the Project.

The particular movies in question are divided into five different page sections, which can be seen via bold text below. Plus, each movie in each section is accompanied with a description.

**Note: One asterisk denotes movies that are ineligible for both any draft and any spot-fill tournament moving forward, two asterisks denote movies that are tentative non-guaranteed Two ThouCentennial movies that could eventually move up to Tier 5, three asterisks denote movies that are tentative non-guaranteed Two ThouCentennial movies that that are ineligible for both any draft and any spot-fill tournament moving forward, four asterisks denote Section One movies that are awaiting permanent banishment from the Two ThouCentennial Project, and five asterisks denote movies that need common movie(s) to pass their assessments/re-assessments

Section One: The Tentative Guaranteed Two ThouCentennial Movies

  1. England Is Mine-It will move up to Tier 5 as a part of either Beast potentially being signed to this page/roster on August 20, 2022, or as one of the five movies that will either be cut or exempt from this page/roster during the 85 to 80 cutdown that will occur on August 23, 2022.
  2. Jurassic World: Dominion-It will be among 27 movies that will either be exempt from this page/roster or cut by this page/roster on August 30, 2022.

Section Two: The Farm Squad, a group of mostly two asterisk and three asterisk movies

  1. *****Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style-This movie is the best one on this page/roster. However, it making the Project is contingent on how Saved By The Bell: Wedding In Las Vegas does in its full-on assessment.
  2. **Sweet Dreams-This movie benefits from the “grow on” vibe that it has, along with the fact that it’s by far Tiffani-Amber Thiessen’s best first post-Saved By The Bell era made-for-TV movie. The only thing that’s holding it back from getting a tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot is the ongoing Tier 12 logjam.
  3. **Buried Secrets-This movie is neck-and-neck with the aforementioned Sweet Dreams. And just like that other Tiffani-Amber Thiessen movie, it’s bound by the ongoing Tier 12 logjam.
  4. **Black Widow-If a girl with an American having a slight Russian accent as an adult is the biggest criticism of this movie, then that’s too much of a nitpick. It will move up to Section One once the logjam gets figured out more.
  5. **Ivansxtc.-This movie has the edge that Leaving Las Vegas allegedly had, thus making it an intriguing candidate for the Project, despite very little screen time for the aforementioned Tiffani-Amber Thiessen. But just like the four movies that are listed above it, it’s bound by the ongoing Tier 12 logjam.
  6. **Daylight-The rescue of Cooper The Dog is too good to not have in Two ThouCentennial lore. However, the current logjam that this movie is in needs to break up more in order for it to move up to Section One.
  7. **The Brass Teapot-Juno Temple and Alexis Bledel are a knockout tandem of eye candy. Plus, Cristin Milioti always also brings the eye candy element, as well as having a sexy southern accent, the last of which really makes a strong case for this movie being a part of Two ThouCentennial lore. It’s just a matter of clearing up the slow-moving logjam that seems to be constant with tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spots being revoked.
  8. **The Invisible-This movie fills the void of Tania Saulnier having a somewhat more substantial role compared to Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, due to Slither failing its assessment. Plus, this movie has a lot of heart. But like most movies in this section, its bound by the slow-moving Tier 12 logjam.
  9. **Lima: Breaking The Silence-The presence of Julie St. Claire and the fact that this movie can be a good first round opponent for The Last Marshal in Conference 32 significantly give it a stronger chance at making the Project. But just like most of the movies in this section, its bound by the slow-moving logjam of Tier 12.
  10. **The Chipmunk Adventure-The baby penguin aspect is totally deserving of Two ThouCentennial lore. Plus, this movie can either work well in tandem with either Desperados or the aforementioned Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style. But just like most of the movies in this section, it needs the Tier 12 logjam to move along.
  11. **One Man And His Cow-This movie got hard copy confirmation. Plus, its hard copy has subtitles, so that its dialogue can be completely understood. And while it can work perfectly in tandem with the third movie in this section, it needs the slow-moving Tier 12 to move along.
  12. **Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby-This movie can be neck-and-neck with Semi-Pro, the latter of which is a Tier 3 movie. Plus, it can be a good a first round opponent for The A-Team in Conference 26. However, it also has to contend with the slow-moving logjam of Tier 12.
  13. **The Mitchells Vs. The Machines-This movie has the “grow on” effect. Plus, it’s an actual movie that can be seen directly or almost directly after anything Saved By The Bell related. However, it’s in the same exact boat as most of the movies in this section.
  14. **Meet The Deedles-Thanks to both A.J. Langer and Petey The Prairie Dog, this movie is one step closer to getting awarded a revoked tentative Two ThouCentennial spot, despite the dim-wittedness of the Deedle Brothers.
  15. **He’s Just Not That Into You-The presence of Busy Philipps in this movie makes it totally deserving of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  16. **Notorious-The spot-on performance of Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G. makes this movie completely worthy of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  17. **3 Strikes-The presence of E-40 makes this movie totally deserving of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  18. **Greener Grass-This movie gives Jocelyn DeBoer a substantial role. Plus it can be a good tournament opponent for Pvt Chat.
  19. **Made In Dagenham-This movie is Andrea Riseborough’s best from the standpoint of her being eye candy.
  20. **The Breakfast Club-This movie plays a unique role in the Two ThouCentennial rises of both Anna Camp and the aforementioned Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, with a song in this movie being pivotal for the former in Pitch Perfect and its assessment being done somewhat directly before the December 4, 2021 viewing of the Saved By The Bell episode “King Of The Hill”, which of course features the latter. So given all of that, it will have a future in the Project.
  21. **The Personal History Of David Copperfield-This movie is way too majestic to not be a part of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  22. **Firewalker-This movie is the best and immediate chance for the late Will Sampson to have a movie of his in the Project.
  23. **Suicide Note-This movie was obtained successfully via hard copy on April 29, 2022. It’s just a matter of the Tier 12 logjam moving along.
  24. **Glitch-See one spot above.
  25. **Now You See It…-See two spots above.
  26. **Apocalypse Now-The aspect of Colonel William Kurtz has been investigated, therefore this movie will move up to Section One sometime soon since it didn’t win any of the four Farm Squad Face-Offs.
  27. **Innocent-This movie has both passed its plot investigation and gotten hard copy confirmation. It could be a candidate for the next Farm Squad Face-Off, which could occur any time between August 5, 2022 and August 20, 2022.
  28. **Lust For Love-The presence of Beau Garrett, the prospect of this movie being a good Conference 6 opponent for Autumn Wanderer and being obtained via hard copy all have this movie one step closer to joining the Project. It needs the Tier 12 logjam to move along.
  29. **Sonic The Hedgehog-The fact that this movie has been in two Farm Squad Face-Off tournaments speaks volumes about its future in the Project. Now it’s just a matter of the Tier 12 logjam moving along.
  30. **Sonic The Hedgehog 2-This movie has the potential to outrank a Tier 3 movie in Transformers: The Last Knight. And just like its predecessor, it needs the Tier 12 logjam to move along.
  31. **Girl In Progress-The presence of Raini Rodriguez and the fact that this movie the has potential to work in tandem with Speedway Junky are the reasons why it will most likely make the Project.
  32. **Ernest Goes To Jail-This movie was ranked 29th out of the 32 movies that were in The Farm Squad Face-Off, but it wasn’t at risk of being claimed by the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page from this section. So thanks to that, as well as being mentioned in the Saved By The Bell episode “From Nurse To Worse”, it will most likely make the Project.
  33. **Repo! The Genetic Opera-This movie passed its plot investigation. However, like many other movies in this section, it’s bound by the slow-moving Tier 12 logjam.
  34. **Eternals-Based on its upside of being connected to the MCU, it will move to Section One once the Tier 12 logjam keeps moving along.
  35. **Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness-This movie passed its plot investigation. It’s just a matter of both hard copy confirmation and the Tier 12 logjam moving along.
  36. **Towelhead-This movie has “grow on” qualities about it, its components all work very well together and it can be a good complimentary piece to anything Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski related.
  37. **Red Rocket-Suzanna Son and Sophie The Dog are the main reasons why this movie will get strong Project consideration.
  38. **Exodus: Gods And Kings-This movie passed the apple-to-apples to comparison/investigation that it had with The Prince Of Egypt, the latter of which is a Tier 3 movie. Now it’s just a matter of getting the Tier 12 logjam to move along.
  39. **American History X-Avery Brooks deserves a movie of his in the Project and this movie is his best chance at achieving that.
  40. **The Game Plan-This movie has finally cleared the hurdle of its restricted status in Tier 9. However, like many other movies in this section, it’s bound by the slow-moving Tier 12 logjam.
  41. **Minions: The Rise Of Gru-This movie is likely next in line to be a 2022 movie that will get hard copy confirmation.
  42. **Thor: Love And Thunder-This movie is likely second in line to be a 2022 movie that will get hard copy confirmation.
  43. **Clouds-This movie has benefitted from the “grow on factor”, along with getting hard copy confirmation. It’s just a matter of how fast that the logjam in Tier 12 will move along.
  44. **Screaming Dead-Heidi Kristoffer came up big in her last ever chance in having a movie of hers being on the verge of making the Project. Now it just needs the likes of Beast to have its assessment completed, so that the 2,000 spots can have a more definitive picture come October 7, 2022.
  45. **DC League Of Super-Pets-This movie is likely third in line to be a 2022 movie that will get hard copy confirmation.
  46. **Date And Switch-Sarah Hyland has a unique connection to both Anna Camp and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, as she was cast mates with the former in The Wedding Year and the mention of the latter’s two Saved By The Bell series are featured in this movie. Hyland is in this movie, and it will be in Conference 23 when both And Then Came Love (Anna Camp movie) and Saved By The Bell: Wedding In Las Vegas (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) join it.
  47. **Turistas-This movie does get better as it goes on and Josh Duhamel surprisingly keeps it afloat, considering that he was involved in that disaster known as Scenic Route. Plus, he’s aided by the presences of both Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett.
  48. **Skyline-This movie is the perfect Conference 22 opponent for Terrordactyl. Especially if both this movie and that movie play in that conference’s tournament championship.
  49. **Skylines-This movie is better than its predecessor. Especially with Lindsay Morgan appearing at the end.
  50. **Beyond Skyline-Lindsey Morgan’s role expands, therefore this movie having a future in the Project.
  51. **Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves-This movie proves to be a good third installment for this particular franchise.
  52. **Broken Diamonds-This movie does a great job in conveying the message of mental illness awareness and could outrank Girl, Interrupted in the Two ThouCentennial rankings.
  53. **Balance, Not Symmetry-This movie benefitted from having its assessment occur during the same week that the additional detail gathering session of the Saved By The Bell episode “The Prom” occurred.
  54. **Klaus-This movie got hard copy confirmation and is likely to be exempt from this page/roster on August 30, 2022.

Section Three: Bumped By Maximum Guaranteed Spot Capacity, a list where nine movies that were once guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spots, but currently aren’t

  1. Gone Girl-Until its rumored sequel is made, it will remain in this section, as it’s currently a waste of a Section One roster spot.
  2. Kickboxer ’89-Its feature is predicated on how the rest of the franchise does.
  3. Keeping Up With The Jones-It will be put on The Chopping Block on August 16, 2022.
  4. Species-If its sequels don’t advance the storyline much or at all, then it’s onto Section Four before going back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  5. The Spiderwick Chronicles-It’s going to need both a plot investigation and closing credits investigation in order to move up to either The Farm Squad or Section One.

Section Four: The Chopping Block, a group of movies (23) that could or will go to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page, with one being ranked as the most likely to be permanently banned from the Two ThouCentennial Project and twenty three being ranked as the least likely to be permanently banned from the Two ThouCentennial Project

  1. R.L. Stine’s Monsterville: Cabinet Of Souls-This movie looked worse in its re-assessment, the plate full of brains scene was a nauseating one and the main characters were selfish in leaving all those other kidnapped souls behind. This movie will be a part of the August 16, 2022 cutdown.
  2. Patriot Games. Why it could be cut: It’s better than the list movie that’s listed above it, but not better than the movie that’s listed below it.
  3. Clear And Present Danger. Why it could be cut: This movie has been rumored to be the love letter to the ineffective “Just Say No” slogan that the late Nancy Reagan coined, thus hurting its chances of making the Project.
  4. Learning To Drive. Why it could be cut: It’s a very uneven movie with its fate predicated on a judgment call.
  5. 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.
  6. A Quiet Place. Why it could be cut: This movie meanders aimlessly for the most part, which sets up a time-jumping kamikaze in its sequel. It will be a part of the August 30 cutdown of 80 to 53.
  7. A Quiet Place: Part II. Why it could be cut: And speaking of that kamikaze, it jumps out of order to days like (500) Days Of Summer did. However, that movie has charm and Minka Kelly making her presence felt at the end, whereas this movie has neither of those things. And just like its predecessor, it will be a part of the August 30 cutdown.
  8. Deuces Wild. Why it could be cut: Given that 72 movies will either be cut or exempt from this page/roster from August 16, 2022 through October 17, 2022, this movie will mostly likely be here after October 17, 2022, due to the call for 53 movies having to be here at all times, with that requirement going into effect on August 30, 2022.
  9. 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.
  10. The Joneses. Why it could be cut: A plot investigation will be conducted for it. However, it fails that investigation, then different movies each for Christine Evangelista and L. Warren Young will be pursued, as they were two of the brighter spots in this movie.
  11. Freedomland. Why it could be cut: It can be a movie that fills some of the grit that left when Panther ’95 was permanently banned from the Project. However, a slightly better Julianne Moore movie in Being Flynn that is also on thin ice in making the Project really jeopardizes this movie’s future in making the Project.
  12. Hello Herman. Why it could be cut: Certain aspects of its plot need to be investigated in order to make the Project.
  13. Mississippi Grind. Why it could be cut: It will be subject to a full plot investigation.
  14. The Post. Why it could be cut: This movie’s perspective of how it tells Watergate will be investigated, which will either get it a tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot or a return back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  15. Leave No Trace. Why it could be cut: It started out slow and picked a bit once beloved animals came into play. A plot investigation could bump this movie up to The Farm Squad, should it pass that investigation.
  16. Body Of Lies. Why it could be cut: Certain aspects of its plot need to be investigated. And should those aspects pass the investigation, then it will move up to The Farm Squad.
  17. Ghost In The Shell. Why it could be cut: A certain aspect of the plot needs to be investigated. And should that investigation be a successful one, then it will move up to The Farm Squad.
  18. Hail, Caeser!. Why it could be cut: Certain aspects of this movie need to be investigated in order for it to make the Project. However, its investigation won’t be as exhaustive as the one for Lost In Space.
  19. The Party-Hrundi V. Bakshi’s widespread destruction is a bit much. But if this ends up being the best assessed/re-assessed Peter Sellers movie, then it will make the Project.
  20. Chocolat. Why it could be cut: The ashes aspect of this movie is the only one that’s holding it back from making the Project.
  21. Frost/Nixon. Why it could be cut: Frank Langella’s Richard Nixon impersonation alone is worthy of Two ThouCentennial lore. However, this movie has to fight through a massive logjam of more potential surefire Two ThouCentennial movies.
  22. School Ties. Why it could be cut: The aspect of this movie where a college professor is shown with his pet dog could be it’s only saving grace, thus it being in judgment call territory.
  23. Benjamin Troubles. Why it could be cut: If better movies aren’t found for both Mishel Prada and Korrina Rico in the Project, then this movie will make it.

Section Five: No Longer Impeded, a section that allows movies the right to compete fairly for a tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot

  1. Saved By The Bell: Wedding In Las Vegas-Given that its non-negotiable to exclude this movie from the current roster of movie assessments/re-assessments, due to it being the centerpiece of said roster, it has become the first and possibly only movie to be placed in this section even before its full-on assessment. And given the advantage that it has over all nine movies that are in both in Tiers 8 and 11, as well as every other Tier 12 movie, it will surely live up to the intent of this section.

Section Six: Tier 5 Battles, a section where worthy movies are battling with yet-to-be assessed Tier 12 movies for the right to make it to Tier 5

  1. The Mambo Kings-This movie ensures that Talisa Soto won’t have a higher Two ThouCentennial ranking average than actresses that are much more dynamic than her, it shows that Antonio Banderas and Armand Assante work perfectly in tandem together, it will give the late Roscoe Lee Browne a fifth movie in the Project, it has potential to work well with Empire and its stock rose when it got assessed during the week that one of the viewings of the Saved By The Bell episode “The Prom” occurred. All that needs to happen for it to make Tier 5 is to have about seven other Tier 12 movies do worse in their assessments.
  2. Uncle Sam-Kiersten Warren is projected to have three Two ThouCentennial movies, which isn’t shabby for someone who had both the gorgeous Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and the gorgeous Anne Tremko as cast mates on Saved By The Bell: The College Years. And speaking of the latter of those two cast mates, this movie gives her (Anne Tremko) a shot at having a movie of hers make the Project. And as it stands right now, this movie is in the same exact boat as The Mambo Kings.
  3. Love Affair-This movie ensures that Carey Lowell won’t have a higher Two ThouCentennial ranking average than actresses that are much more dynamic than her, it gives Warren Beatty his best chance at having a movie of his make the Project and it can work well with anything that is Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski related. And as it stands right now, this movie is in the same exact boat as both The Mambo Kings and Uncle Sam.

Section Seven: Earned Their Keep, a section where long-waiting movies are finally on the verge of joining the Project

  1. Mary Shelley-This movie is the classic definition of a perfect movie to watch on a dark and stormy night. The only thing that stands in its way is the slow-moving Tier 12 logjam.
  2. The Cobbler-Kim Cloutier is a smoke show in this movie and that’s just too good to not have in the Project. The only thing holding it back is being in the same exact boat as the aforementioned Mary Shelley right now.

Section Eight: Brought In/Back For Tryouts, a section where Tier 10 movies can get re-assessed to see if they are Project worthy or not

No movie is in this section at the moment.
