    Scavenger Hunt 15 - A film starring an actor/ actress from the TV show The Walking Dead (Gary Weeks)

    It's nice to see a studio release that strives to please only itself, not the audience. Shane Black's The Nice Guys is nice because it's not a disposable summer movie made for a certain audience looking for a standad neo-noir to pass two hours.

    Scavenger Hunt 15 - A film with a fast motion scene

    Jean-Ralphio > Jean-Louis. That's an equation Jeff would know.

    Robert Zemeckis makes movies that are wonderful. Exhibit A: Back to the Future. Exhibit B: Forrest Gump. Exhibit C: The Walk. There are certainly more in between the three selections, too.
