#MovieThread, 2021 edition!
In 2020 I watched 101 movies from very early into first lockdown until August 11, and the another 138 between then and last night.
I did not do a formal thread for the first 101, but I did do one for the next 138: https://beepboop.one/@Alexis/104677806709308567
Today's movie, #1 of 2021, or #240 since I started counting, 1995's "Johnny Mnemonic," because I think I saw someone say it's set in 2021? A topical affair!
* "Second decade of the 21st century." Nailed it.* "Corporations rule." Would've put it differently, but sure.* "The world is threatened by a new plague." Shit. Too topical.
Uncanny. Like watching the news.
"The most valuable information must sometimes be entrusted to mnemonic couriers, elite agents who smuggle data in wet-wired brain implants."
SO DUDES WHO REMEMBER SHIT, GOT IT
time to Log On

@Alexis I wonder if the movie would have been any better if they hadn't taken Molly Millions out of it.
It's like doing A Study in Scarlet without Sherlock Holmes.
