    Scavenger Hunt #87
    Task #5: A watchlist title available on a streaming service

    A Polish contractor (Jeremy Irons) and his fellow countrymen (Eugene Lipinski, Jiri Stanislav, Eugeniusz Haczkiewicz) are sent to London to fix up their boss's residence, but their homeland soon falls to martial law, stranding the men in an unfamiliar world. Somewhat dry but consistently compelling drama leaves one wondering how they would handle such a situation. Almost documentary-like, with a good cast of (mostly) unknowns.

    Task #10: A movie starring Ice-T

    Two Arkansas firemen (Bill Paxton, William Sadler) search for a rumored fortune in gold in an Illinois tenement...the exact location that a crime lord (Ice-T) and his men have committed murder. Tense, snappy thriller gives its strong cast plenty to chew on before setting them against each other.

    A Bear for Punishment

    ★★★★★

    Pa Bear is honored by his family on Father's Day...whether he likes it or not. One giggle-inducing gag after another in this cartoon. The expressions on Junyer's face during the "My Pa" poem alone are enough to make this a classic.

    Task #4: A movie with a blue poster or the word 'blue' in the title

    Following a night of drinking, Norah (Anne Baxter) wakes up to a hangover and the news that the man (Raymond Burr) she was with is dead. Is she the killer? Well-done interweaving of noir and melodrama, with some nice touches.
