    Dynamite Joe

    ★★★

    Dynamite Joe is a pretty standard spaghetti Western, with the main distinction being that, instead of using a revolver, the hero loves solving his problems with dynamite. It's basically the film equivalent of this meme, and I loved this gimmick.

    In general, I like when I go to watch a film with no expectations and get pleasantly surprised. While Dynamite Joe is nowhere near close to the best the genre has to offer, it has a fun and whimsical tone, going from standard Western to swashbuckler pastiche. The set pieces are the best thing here, I loved all the stuff being blown up constantly.

    I'm generally not a big fan of 'evil child' horror films, but I actually really liked this one. The combination of the childhood innocence and the idyllic British countryside with the gruesomeness of the deaths have this a really creepy feeling.

    ★★★½

    April 2016 Scavenger Hunt
    Film #2
    Task #22: A film with a budget over $150 million (adjusting for inflation)

    Although opinions on Batman v Superman have been polarizing and everyone has gotten a different amount of entertainment from it, almost everyone seems to agree what this film's good and bad points are.

    Just like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman has a great start, which sets up the world and the characters, but then ends with a big dumb cgi…
