The Tentative Roster

On April 6, 2022, the 1,438th spot was filled in the Two ThouCentennial Project and some of those overall 1,438 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 662 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 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. Concrete Cowboy-This movie has to remain in this section until May 21, 2022.
  2. Ambulance-This movie has confirmed hard copy status, thus it being in this section now. It will move up to Tier 5 with the aforementioned Concrete Cowboy on May 21, 2022.
  3. 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.
  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. 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. *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.
  7. *Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald-See one spot above.
  8. *A Quiet Place-See two spots above.
  9. *A Quiet Place Part II-See three spots above.

Section Two: The Farm Squad, a group of 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. **The Northman-This movie has the potential to outrank Kingdom Of Heaven (a Tier 3 movie). It’s just a matter of hard copy confirmation.
  5. **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.
  6. **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 two movies that are listed above it, it’s bound by the ongoing Tier 12 logjam.
  7. ***Encino Man-On one hand, this movie can oddly enough work well in tandem with any of The Lords Rings movies or Hobbit movies. And given that another Pauly Shore movie (Son In Law) has been a lot of the rage over the past three months-plus, this Pauly Shore movie is trending upwards in re-joining the Project.
  8. ***In The Army Now-This movie has “grow on” quality about it, along with the fact it needs to be in the Project with both the aforementioned Encino Man and Son In Law.
  9. ***Big Night-This movie is no longer tournament eligible, so it will have to wait for a lot of potentially better movies to fail their assessments/re-assessments.
  10. **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.
  11. **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.
  12. **England Is Mine-This movie was assessed a few hours before the jot down session of the Saved By The Bell “The Prom” and has had its stock increasingly rise as a result of that. However, in order for it to get a tentative guaranteed Two ThouCentennial spot, it will need the constant and slow-moving logjam to clear up a bit more.
  13. **Jungle Cruise-This movie can be a good complimentary movie to anything Saved By The Bell related.
  14. **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.
  15. **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.
  16. **Pig-This movie could outrank Winter’s Bone, a Tier 2 movie. But just like most of the movies in this section, it needs the Tier 12 logjam to move along.
  17. **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.
  18. **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.
  19. **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.
  20. **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.
  21. **The Hottest State-This movie is Catalina Sandino Moreno’s best immediate chance at having a movie of hers in the Project.
  22. **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.
  23. **He’s Just Not That Into You-The presence of Busy Philipps in this movie makes it totally deserving of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  24. **Notorious-The spot-on performance of Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G. makes this movie completely worthy of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  25. **3 Strikes-The presence of E-40 makes this movie totally deserving of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  26. **Greener Grass-This movie gives Jocelyn DeBoer a substantial role. Plus it can be a good tournament opponent for Pvt Chat.
  27. **Made In Dagenham-This movie is Andrea Riseborough’s best from the standpoint of her being eye candy.
  28. **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.
  29. **The Personal History Of David Copperfield-See 20 spots above. Plus, this movie is way too majestic to not be a part of Two ThouCentennial lore.
  30. **Firewalker-This movie is the best and immediate chance for the late Will Sampson to have a movie of his in the Project.
  31. **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.
  32. **Glitch-See one spot above.
  33. **Now You See It…-See two spots above.
  34. **The Last Duel-A Kingdom Of Heaven evaluation won’t happen until late 2022 at the earliest, so this movie has been designated to remain in this section and with the possibility of moving up to Section One.
  35. **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 The Farm Squad Face-Off.
  36. **Innocent-It comes down to both a plot investigation and hard copy confirmation for this movie.
  37. **Lust For Love-The presence of Beau Garrett, the prospect of this movie being a good Conference 6 opponent for Autumn Wanderer, and being able to decipher what parts of it are present day and what parts of it in the past make it an intriguing candidate for the Project. It’s just a matter of whether it can be obtained via hard copy or not.
  38. **Sonic The Hedgehog-Based on possible franchise continuation, this movie will be in this section for an indefinite amount of time.
  39. **Sonic The Hedgehog 2-See one spot above.
  40. **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.
  41. **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.
  42. **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.
  43. **Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness-Certain aspects of this movie’s plot need to be investigated to determine whether it has a future in the Project or not.

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. 300: Rise Of An Empire-Lack of progress of a third installment makes this movie a complete waste of a Section One roster spot.
  3. The Hunt For Red October-It will be re-activated to Section One once the tentative logjam breaks up more.
  4. Kickboxer ’89-Its feature is predicated on how the rest of the franchise does.
  5. Keeping Up With The Jones-See four spots above.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Clear And Present Danger-See two spots above.

Section Four: The Chopping Block, a group of movies (30) 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 thirty being ranked as the least likely to be permanently banned from the Two ThouCentennial Project

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Learning To Drive. Why it could be cut: It’s a very uneven movie with its fate predicated on a judgment call.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Big Trouble In Little China. Why it could be cut: The only thing that could save this movie from going to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page is its rumored sequel.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  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. First Sunday. Why it could be cut: Opening cringe and occasional bad execution of one of this movie’s scenes are the only reasons why it’s both in this section and in judgment call territory.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Skyline. Why it could be cut: See two spots below.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. Eternals. Why it could be cut: It will need a full plot investigation so that it can have a chance at getting Project consideration. And should it pass the plot investigation, then it will move up to The Farm Squad.
  29. Towelhead. Why it could be cut: This movie showed that it can somewhat be a movie that can be watched right after a Saved By The Bell episode. It just needs its plot investigated to go from “somewhat” to “totally”, as its future in the Project is on the line.
