    My top 100 of all time has been getting a bit unwieldy and I'm not sure how I feel about the current rankings, so for the next little while I'll be re-watching a lot of films in the top 50 so that I can be sure that the list can be more accurate. I've chosen The Good,…

    Extended Edition
    Something I love about this trilogy that I only realized on this viewing is that each film, despite the same cast and crew, has multiple unique aspects that are absent in the other two. As I review the other two films this week I'll list these aspects. Considered as part of the whole, Fellowship is the most unique of the three, with:

    ★★★½

    Since I want to check off some silent films I figure a good way to do it is watch along with a handful of 100th anniversaries, and The Kid is my starting point.

    Film #4 of December 2017 Scavenger Hunt
    Task #25: A film you think is going to be nominated for an Oscar this year

    Quite possibly my least favourite of the franchise. It betrayed the spirit of certain characters, tried to juggle 5 different plotlines when only 2 of them were kind of interesting, and threw out a dozen different themes without any of them working and few even having proper resolution.
