    Ferris Bueller's Day Off


    Scavenger Hunt #36 | Film #2
    Task #29: Watch a movie that is referenced in the book Ready Play One

    I guess Mr. Bueller should have gone to Specsavers.

    I think it's about time for me to realise that 80s teen movies aren't really my thing, but unlike the others I've seen, this actually gave me a few laughs. That's much thanks to the cast, though. Matthew Broderick makes Ferris Bueller a charming asshole, and Cameron, well, he is one…

    Task #24: Shuffle your watchlist and watch the 8th thing that comes up

    How the director of Pride and Prejudice and Atonement could make something as dull as this is beyond me. What happened to your greatness, Joe? Where did it go?

    This film is literally out of the world and I can't believe we have been blessed with such an incredible and stunning film. The musical scene and the ending were just.... I don't know, I'm speechless.

    I probably shouldn't be surprised that this was great, but before I started watching this I was afraid my expectations were too high and that I would end up disappointed. It was so chillingly creepy and intense. Anthony Hopkins delivered what might be the most frightening performance of all time and Jodie Foster is perfect in the role as Clarice Starling. Looking at all the reviews, I feel like everything that there is to say have already been said. It was truly an incredible film.
