    What the fire-emblazoned-Cadillac-fuck did I just watch?

    ★★★★

    The grandaddy of FX-driven blockbusters, with Fay Wray, cinema's original scream queen. The middle (and longest) section taking place on the island went on a little long for my tastes. But that's only a minor criticism as the film is massively entertaining otherwise.

    ★★

    Fairly basic Western set-up with stilted acting. There were some technical things to admire, though, and the film is bookended with a decent chase and fistfight.

  • Marked Woman

    Marked Woman

    ★★★½

    A really compelling story that makes for interesting viewing in this (post-)#MeToo era. Bette Davis does really well, although the hysterics were a little too much sometimes. Humphrey Bogart also does well, but he wasn't in it as much as I was expecting.

    Worst. Batman movie. Ever. (Although FWIW, it was better than Fant4stic.)

    This is how you do a film about children (but not necessarily for them) without being exploitative. The way you see this unfold as if through the eyes of a child is incredible, and the performances were just as good. I also see this being added to French class curricula in the future.
