    ★★★

    I feel so bad for not loving this, but I think I'm a victim of too many expectations. Not only did I have high expectations, but I also thought it was going to be just a pure night of dancing and fun, and there ended up being way more conflict than I thought there would be. I was also not all that invested in the characters, I wasn't sure for a bit who the main characters were supposed to be,…

    Scavenger hunt 68 || task 2 || watch a time loop movie
    22/30

    Not much to say about this, it's pretty much exactly what I expected. Nothing mind-blowing, a lot of action movie cliches, but still pretty cool. I will say, it's really hard to buy Tom Cruise as an officer too cowardly to actually fight. I also happen to have rated all three time loop movies I've seen ("Palm Springs" and "Groundhog Day" in addition to this) a 3.5/5. And that's just about all I have to say about that.

    task 15: a film you think would be PERFECT to see at a drive-in theater.

    "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" is definitely a Quentin Tarantino picture, and it doesn't let you forget it by the end.

The film is not driven by character…

    Joker

    ★★★½

    On second thought...

    First two thirds: almost a slog, derivative, predictable, by the numbers, gorgeous score, nice cinematography, great Joaquin Phoenix

    Last act: pretty gripping, great musical choices, operatic, grandiose, extravagant, ballsy, great Joaquin Phoenix

    "Joker" is good, not great
