The Tentative Roster

On July 25, 2021, the 1,299th spot was filled in the Two Thous-Ton Project and some of those overall 1,299 movies can be seen via the Two Thous-Ton 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 remaining 701 open spots for the Two Thous-Ton 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 Thous-Ton Movies

  1. 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.
  2. A-X-L-See one spot above.
  3. The Odd Couple II-It needs its predecessor to succeed in order to make the Project.
  4. 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 both The Odd Couple II and Maleficent, except that this movie hasn’t had its sequel come out yet.
  5. *Belle And Sebastian-It will move up to Tier 2 sometime after the Expansion To 1,400 Draft.
  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.

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

  1. ***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 Thous-Ton movie.
  2. ***Spread ’09-See one spot above.
  3. ***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.
  4. ***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.
  5. **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. 
  6. **Belle & Sebastian 3: The Last Chapter-It will move up to Section One once a movie has been selected to fill the spot of D3: The Mighty Ducks in Tier 4.
  7. **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.
  8. **Manipulated-If there was hard copy (DVD and/or Blu-ray disc) confirmation for this movie, then it would be a Section One movie already. But if and possibility when that confirmation does come, it will be marked as a tentative non-guaranteed Two Thous-Ton movie.
  9. **Concrete Cowboy-Netflix’s unwillingness in putting their own original movies on hard copy is the only roadblock in this movie making the Project.
  10. **A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon-See one spot above.
  11. **Coming 2 America-Based on its title and the title of its predecessor, it’s very likely that it will get hard copy confirmation. But until that day comes, it will remain in this section.
  12. **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.
  13. **Desperados-Despite Wesley’s ridiculous and obsessive behavior, this is the type of movie that grows on you. Plus, Anna Camp deservedly got a lot of screen time. The only roadblock for this movie is the same roadblock that both Concrete Cowboy and A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon each have, which is Netflix’s unwillingness to put an original movie of theirs on hard copy (DVD/Blu-ray disc).
  14. **Here Awhile-The combination of Anna Camp playing a character that you feel for throughout this movie and Steven Strait as Camp’s character’s younger brother scream nothing but Two Thous-Ton for it. It’s only a matter of hard copy confirmation at this point.
  15. **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 seven movies that are listed ahead of it, it simply needs hard copy confirmation to get one step closer to making the Project.
  16. **Okja-Its post-credits scene raised the possibility of a sequel. But even without a sequel, this movie has a very complete feel to it. It’s just a matter of how to obtain a hard copy of it.
  17. **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.
  18. **The November Man-Certain aspects of this movie need to be investigated in order for it to move up to Section One. But it’s certainly more Project ready than any of the movies that are in Section Four.

Section Three: Bumped By Maximum Guaranteed Spot Capacity, a list where 13 of its 14 movies were once guaranteed Two Thous-Ton 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 three spots above.
  14. Boss Level-Hard copy confirmation (DVD and/or Blu-ray disc) won’t be enough for this movie to make the Project, as it also needs a sequel to give a more complete feel to it.

Section Four: The Chopping Block, a group of movies (51) 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 Thous-Ton Project and forty nine being ranked as the least likely to be permanently banned from the Two Thous-Ton Project

  1. Strays. Why it could be cut: Once a better TK Kirkland movie is worthy of Project consideration, then this one will be cut after such a scenario happens.
  2. La mujer de mi hermano. Why it could be cut: Once Barbara Mori and Manolo Cardona each have better movies that are worthy of Project consideration, then this one will be cut shortly after such a scenario happens.
  3. Hot Tub Time Machine. Why it could be cut: It bombed hard in its second re-assessment and will be going back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page once its sequel gets re-assessed.
  4. Flypaper. Why it could be cut: It’s going to be re-watched for written review purposes, which could then very likely determine it either moving up to The Farm Squad or landing on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  5. 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.
  6. Malevolence. Why it could be cut: It has bad production value and stilted dialogue. Plus, it does a disservice to its prequel, Bereavement, thus why the entire Malevolence franchise will be on the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  7. Bereavement. Why it could be cut: This movie has bright spots with Alexandra Daddario as Allison, Michael Biehn as Uncle Jonathan, Nolan Gerard Funk as William, Peyton List (the one born in 1998) as Cousin Wendy and Cousin Wendy’s small menagerie of animals. But pretty much all of them, except for Randy The Dog, get wiped out by the murderous tandem of Graham Sutter and Martin Bristol. And given how much vitriol that that tandem received following this movie’s re-assessment, this movie will be going back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page once the assessment of Malevolence 3: Killer is completed.
  8. 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.
  9. In & Out. Why it could be cut: This movie is both cringe and has continuously aged poorly. However, it also has components (the presence of the late Wilford Brimley and the presence of Shalom Harlow) that keep this movie afloat in making the Project. This one is in judgment call status.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Escape From New York. Why it could be cut: If Escape From L.A. passes its re-assessment, then this movie will move up to The Farm Squad.
  14. Last Man Standing. Why it could be cut: If it passes its plot investigation, then it could be added to The Farm Squad.
  15. Ghost Rider. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut as tied with the fate of its sequel.
  16. Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. Why it could be cut: This movie’s fate in avoiding being cut as tied with the fate of its predecessor.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. The Forbidden Kingdom. Why it could be cut: A plot investigation has to be conducted for this movie in order to make the Project.
  20. Learning To Drive. Why it could be cut: It’s a very uneven movie with its fate predicated on a judgment call.
  21. Legion. Why it could be cut: A plot investigation needs to be conducted for this movie.
  22. 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.
  23. RV. Why it could be cut: The cringe dialogue and the cringe singing are both often unbearable. And while this movie has a certain charm about it, that charm might not be enough in preventing it from be re-acquired by the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page.
  24. 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.
  25. Weakness. Why it could be cut: A written movie review will determine whether it goes back to the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention or if it will get one of the elusive fully guaranteed Two Thous-Ton spots.
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
  29. 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.
  30. Generation Um… Why it could be cut: It’s in the same exact boat as both Flypaper and Weakness.
  31. 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.
  32. Madea’s Witness Protection. Why it could be cut: Tyler Perry’s three-character versatility needs to be a part of Two Thous-Ton lore somehow and Danielle Campbell is convincingly lively as the eldest of Eugene Levy’s character’s two children. This movie’s Project status hinges on a judgment call.
  33. Ouija: Origin Of Evil. Why it could be cut: It has Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark vibes about it. But the incomplete feel of the movie (Ouija) that it was a prequel to could unfortunately be cut from Project consideration.
  34. Ouija. Why it could be cut: If a sequel isn’t made for this movie, then this movie will be cut, along with the movie that’s before it.
  35. 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.
  36. Broken City. Why it could be cut: This movie is oddly adjoined at the hip with Disconnect, a movie that was re-acquired by the Movie-Ocrity/Dishonorable Mention page on July 13, 2021. And given how this went to pieces in the scene of Billy’s falling out with Natalie at the bar during its re-assessment, it might be reunited with the aforementioned Disconnect.
  37. Lost In Space. Why it could be cut: It needs a major plot investigation in order to make the Project.
  38. 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.
  39. The Last Five Years. Why it could be cut: It depends on how its ending is interpreted. 
  40. Your Sister’s Sister. Why it could be cut: An investigation into its ending will determine its future in the Two Thous-Ton Project.
  41. 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.
  42. 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.
  43. Light Years. Why it could be cut: This movie going to need a plot investigation because it’s all over the place. However, it’s also a movie that’s the ninth least likely to be cut, due to the presence of Makenzie Leigh.
  44. 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.
  45. 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.
  46. 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.
  47. Clerks. Why it could be cut: It did better in its re-assessment, but it will need its sequel to pass its respective re-assessment in order to move up to The Farm Squad.
  48. A League Of Their Own. Why it could be cut: Despite being the fourth least likely movie to be cut out of the 50 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.
  49. Perfect Body. Why it could be cut: It’s in judgment call territory, based on its ending.
  50. Susie Q. Why it could be cut: It’s neck-and-neck with the aforementioned Perfect Body, but it’s also tethered to that movie the way that Broken City was tethered to Disconnect.
  51. The Personal History Of David Copperfield. Why it could be cut: Out of all the 50 movies in this section, it’s the one with the strongest likelihood in making the Project. However, a totally thorough investigation needs to be conducted in order for that likelihood to become a reality.
