The Tentative Roster

On October 25, 2021, the 1,321st spot was filled in the Two ThouCentennial Project and some of those overall 1,321 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 779 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 four 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 Thous-Ton movies that could eventually move up to Tier 5, and three asterisks denote movies that are tentative non-guaranteed Two Thous-Ton movies that that are ineligible for both any draft and any spot-fill tournament moving forward

Section One: The Tentative Guaranteed Two ThouCentennial Movies

  1. Cry Macho-Now that You Get Me has moved up to Tier 5, this movie is now the current temporary centerpiece of this page/roster, as it will move up to Tier 5 once the 1,322nd fully guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot has been filled.
  2. Den Of Thieves-This movie is in the interesting spot of holding onto the tentative guaranteed spot of a much more Project-ready movie, while risking being caught in both an on-going and non-guaranteed logjam in Section Three.
  3. A-X-L-See one spot above.
  4. The Odd Couple II-It needs its predecessor to succeed in order to make the Project.
  5. Doctor Strange-It’s in the same boat as both Den Of Thieves and A-X-L. Plus, it’s sort of in the same boat as The Odd Couple II, except that this movie hasn’t had its sequel come out yet.
  6. *Belle And Sebastian-It will move up to Tier 2 sometime after the Expansion To 1,400 Draft.
  7. *Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them-It’s in the same boat as both of the movies that are listed above it and in the same boat as Doctor Strange.
  8. *Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald-See one spot above.

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

  1. **Something The Lord Made-This movie is up against a lot of movies that are potentially more dynamic for one of the 37 open tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spots. It’s going to need a lot of those movies to be in doubt in order for it to move up to Section One sooner rather than later. Luckily, it’s first in The Farm Squad queue.
  2. **Liberal Arts-This movie’s comparability to a couple of Minka Kelly movies in (500) Days Of Summer and to a much lesser extent in Just Go With It, along with the investigation into its ending being a successful one, elevate it as the second movie in The Farm Squad queue.
  3. **Zeroville-Its “grow-on” quality, its potential to be neck-and-neck with Once Upon A Time In…Hollywood and the fact that Thaila Ayala has a memorable cameo all make this movie the third one in The Farm Squad queue.
  4. **Morris From America-No matter how its ending is interpreted, this movie is too good to not to be fourth in this queue, along with the fact that it’s just too good to not eventually become a part of the Project.
  5. **The Last Five Years-Total clarity on its entire plot and the grow-on factor puts this movie as fifth in this queue.
  6. **Man Camp-It’s the perfect Conference 14 opponent for UHF, along with the fact that it could be neck-and-neck with Steam, as both this movie and that movie are Kate Siegel movies. And with both of those factors being said, it’s sixth in this queue.
  7. **Earwig And The Witch-It could outrank Ponyo as the best Studio Ghibli movie in the Project, thus why it’s seventh in this queue.
  8. **The November Man-It passed the “open to interpretation” test, thus why it’s eighth in this queue.
  9. **Undercover Brother-It’s a movie that can work well in tandem with Houseguest and was signed to this section on September 3, 2021, thus making this movie ninth in this queue.
  10. **No Way, Jose-The end of this movie has some nice subtlety to it, thus making it tenth in this queue.
  11. **At Middleton-This movie’s fun college vibe has nothing but Two Thous-Ton written all over it, thus making it eleventh in this queue.
  12. **Stepmom-This movie has nothing but Two Thous-Ton written all over it, thus it being twelfth in this queue.
  13. **Casa de mi Padre-The presence of Genesis Rodriguez almost single-handedly gives this movie Two ThouCentennial consideration, it’s the perfect first round opponent in Conference 21 for the aforementioned Zeroville and it can work well in a line-up that has Timeline, Paycheck, The Life Before Her Eyes and The Wedding Year. So with all of that being said, it’s lucky number thirteen in this queue.
  14. **Sweet Virginia-It can work well in a line-up that has Guess Who or work well in a line-up that has The Longest Yard ’05 and the aforementioned Liberal Arts, thus why it’s fourteenth in this queue.
  15. **The Judge-The hard copy ending matches up with the Hulu version ending, thus why it’s fifteenth in this queue.
  16. **In & Out-It’s neck-and-neck with The Emperor’s Club, thus why it’s sixteenth in this queue.
  17. ***Danny Collins-With all the movies that are awaiting assessment/re-assessment, it’s going to need to have most (if not all) of those completely fail in order become a fully guaranteed Two ThouCentennial-Ton movie.
  18. ***Spread ’09-See one spot above.
  19. ***Son In Law-On one hand, it can be a good movie to watch on a Wednesday night. But on the other hand, one Pauly Shore movie (The Wash) is enough for the Project.
  20. ***Encino Man-On one hand, it can oddly enough work well in tandem with any of The Lords Rings movies or Hobbit movies. But on the other hand, it’s in the same exact boat as Son In Law, from the standpoint of one Pauly Shore movie (The Wash) is enough for the Project.
  21. **The Little Things-For the most part, it passed its plot investigation. However, a movie that gives a more definitive explanation of Albert Sparma is the only way that this movie won’t have two asterisks next to its name. 
  22. **Hotel Transylvania-This movie’s future in the Project is predicated on how its two completed sequels and its a potential third sequel all do in their assessments/re-assessments.
  23. **Concrete Cowboy-Netflix’s unwillingness in putting their own original movies on hard copy is the only roadblock in this movie making the Project.
  24. **A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon-See one spot above.
  25. **Tater Tot & Patton-This movie doesn’t have the name that Coming 2 America it has, but it’s just as deserving of moving up to Section One if/when it gets hard copy confirmation.
  26. **1 Night In San Diego-Like Desperados, this movie has a grow on you vibe about it. Plus, Laura Ashley Samuels makes it engrossing throughout. And just like the three movies that are listed ahead of it, it simply needs hard copy confirmation to get one step closer to making the Project.
  27. **Delivering The Goods-This movie has nighttime evaluation written all over it. It’s a just matter of how it can be obtained via hard copy.
  28. **The Personal History Of David Copperfield-This movie isn’t one of the yet-to-be assessed/re-assessed movies that Something The Lord Made, Liberal Arts, Zeroville, Morris From America, The Last Five Years, Man Camp, Earwig And The Witch, The November Man, Undercover Brother, No Way, Jose, At Middleton, Stepmom, Casa de mi Padre, Sweet Virginia The Judge and In & Out are each competing against to fill the now 37 revoked tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spots. And given that scenario, it could join those thirteen movies in this section’s queue, even with Region 1 hard copy confirmation.
  29. **Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings-This movie is not afforded the same short waiting period as both Malignant and Cry Macho, as its hard copy status remains unresolved.

Section Three: Bumped By Maximum Guaranteed Spot Capacity, a list where 13 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. Good Luck Chuck-Its fate has yet to be determined.
  3. 300: Rise Of An Empire-Lack of progress of a third installment makes this movie a complete waste of a Section One roster spot.
  4. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice-The combination of its post-credits scene “ending” and no sequel makes it a complete waste of a Section One roster spot.
  5. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones-The ambiguity of a sequel (eight years since this movie came out) makes it a complete waste of a Section One roster spot.
  6. The Hunt For Red October-It will be re-activated to Section One once the tentative logjam breaks up more.
  7. Major League: Back To The Minors-See five spots above.
  8. Kickboxer ’89-See six spots above.
  9. Keeping Up With The Jones-See seven spots above.
  10. 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.
  11. Patriot Games-It’s in the same boat as The Hunt For Red October, along with the fact that both this movie and that movie need to be investigated about whether they connect to both The Sum Of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit or not. And of course, that won’t happen until the re-assessment of Clear And Present Danger is complete.
  12. 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.
  13. Clear And Present Danger-See two spots above.

Section Four: The Chopping Block, a group of movies (40) 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 forty being ranked as the least likely to be permanently banned from the Two ThouCentennial Project

  1. Speedway Junkie. Why it could be cut: It meanders at times and the fate of Steve (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) has too much ambiguity. However, this movie’s Project eligibility remains afloat, due to the trio of Warren G, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Adrienne Frantz. It’s in judgment call status.
  2. 3 Strikes. Why it could be cut: E-40 is the only reason why this movie hasn’t returned to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page. But it could return to that page if there’s a better movie that has the Bay Area rapper in it.
  3. G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra. Why it could be cut: If its sequel passes its investigation, then it will move up with its sequel to The Farm Squad.
  4. G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Why it could be cut: If it passes its investigation, then it will move up with its predecessor to The Farm Squad.
  5. 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 Section One roster and/or a Section Three. Its odyssey begins with a plot investigation.
  6. Last Man Standing. Why it could be cut: If it passes its plot investigation, then it could be added to The Farm Squad.
  7. Ghost Rider. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut is tied with the fate of its sequel.
  8. Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut is tied with the fate of its predecessor.
  9. The Perfect Score. Why it could be cut: Its plot is pointless and it gets worse as it goes on. It will be back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page within a week.
  10. Lucky Number Slevin. Why it could be cut: Its grit and the tandem of Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley give it a puncher’s chance of making the Project. However, it might not be dynamic enough.
  11. V For Vendetta. Why it could be cut: It’s a little better than the aforementioned Lucky Number Slevin. But it progressively gets worse, so a return to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page is likely. Very likely!
  12. The Cobbler. Why it could be cut: Adam Sandler morphing into different people is cringe and on that ground alone, it could have been back on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page right now. However, Dustin Hoffman’s appearance towards the end of this movie is why it’s in this best worst case scenario. And because of the latter of those two things, it’s in judgment call territory.
  13. Ratchet & Clank. Why it could be cut: Upon further analyzation, the mid-credits scene is a good apples-to-apples comparison to Transformers: The Last Knight. However, it’s also a movie that is at best questionable about whether it can be a Two Thous-Ton movie or not.
  14. The Forbidden Kingdom. Why it could be cut: A plot investigation has to be conducted for this movie in order to make the Project.
  15. Learning To Drive. Why it could be cut: It’s a very uneven movie with its fate predicated on a judgment call.
  16. Feast Of Love. Why it could be cut: There’s a little too much ambiguity surrounding Chloe, following her becoming pregnant prior to becoming a widow. And because of that, this movie is in judgment call status.
  17. The Men Who Stare At Goats. Why it could be cut: Its end scene needs to be investigated, as it’s comparable to the end scene of Grow House.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Why it could be cut: If it passes its plot investigation and/or Anna Faris has a live-action movie that’s not better than this one, then it will make the Project.
  22. Survivor. Why it could be cut: It starts off a little too slow, but is saved by veteran actors Dylan McDermott and Pierce Brosnan. This movie is in judgment call territory right now.
  23. Serpico. Why it could be cut: For the most part, Dog Day Afternoon and Scarecrow (two other Al Pacino movies) looked as if they would both outrank this movie on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page. However, this movie showed heart towards the end. Plus, based on true story movies have a way of staying in Project contention. It’s going to need a lot of immediate movies up for assessment/re-assessment to fail dramatically in order to make The Farm Squad as a tentative guaranteed Two Thous-Ton movie, as it has very long odds of making it right now.
  24. Lost In Space. Why it could be cut: It needs a major plot investigation in order to make the Project.
  25. The Gunman. Why it could be cut: Idris Elba and the bull-fighting scene towards the end keep this movie afloat. It just needs a full-on plot investigation at this point.
  26. Hello Herman. Why it could be cut: Certain aspects of its plot need to be investigated in order to make the Project.
  27. 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.
  28. The Hottest State. Why it could be cut: This movie is beautifully shot (especially the aspect of when William and Sara are in Mexico) and it has Alexandra Daddario, albeit for a brief time. But its ending needs to investigated.
  29. 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.
  30. 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.
  31. The Giver. Why it could be cut: Most of its plot needs an investigation. And should it pass its investigation, then it will move up to The Farm Squad.
  32. 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 the aforementioned Lost In Space.
  33. Skylines. Why it could be cut: The presence of Lindsey Morgan and a fourth installment of the Skyline franchise could ensure this movie’s future in the Project. But until that such time comes, this movie will be in this section.
  34. Beyond Skyline. Why it could be cut: A little of the former and 100% of the latter are the reasons why this is in this section.
  35. Finding Forrester. Why it could be cut: In terms of making the Project, this movie is on the outside looking in. It’s in judgment call territory right now.
  36. A League Of Their Own. Why it could be cut: Despite being the fifth least likely movie to be cut out of the 46 movies in this section, it will most likely move up to The Farm Squad. However, that’s assuming that the investigation of its closing credits ends being a successful one.
  37. The Invisible. Why it could be cut: It’s a high-end judgment call movie that needs a couple issues addressed. And should those couples get addressed, then it will move up to The Farm Squad.
  38. Chocolat. Why it could be cut: The ashes aspect of this movie is the only that’s holding it back from making the Project.
  39. R.L. Stine’s Monsterville: Cabinet Of Souls. Why it could be cut: This movie is the best in this section, thus it getting a plot investigation almost immediately.
  40. As You Like It. Why it could be cut: This movie needs a full-on plot investigation. The only reason why it’s least likely to be cut right now is the presence of Bryce Dallas Howard in this movie.
