    Film #30 of "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge!
    Task #16: A cyberpunk film!

    Let's get this straight...this film pulls off many incredible feats.
    1) Adapts an iconic cartoon TV show into an incredible work of art.
    2) Completely nails the look and feel and even the quiet brooding mood of the original material. The worldbuilding captured here is remarkable.
    3) If you haven't watched the original series, the storyline renders an adaptation impossible. It is virtually unfilmable as…

    Film 18 of the "Scavenger Hunt #2" Challenge!

    A disaster film involving any mode of transportation!

    I don't really even know what to say that hasn't already been said. This movie was awesome. My mind has been totally blown.

    However, I will say this about my experience with my local movie theater. The wife (RecycledSparks) and I went out and had some dinner and then headed over to the theater (we'd been looking forward to this for…
