    ★★★★

    Film #8 of August 2017 Scavenger Hunt
    Task #30: Watch a science fiction DOUBLE FEATURE film from the 1950s.

    "Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong, 

    You'll never catch me alive, said he, 

    And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
    
you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

    Task #5: Watch a film starring a Summer Under the Stars on TCM star: Sidney Poitier.

    A bit of a sappy take on race relations with some great acting.

    Task #26: Watch a film about a teacher

    David Oyelowo and Lupita Nyong'o were fantastic, and the child/teenage actors all did really well. I think the cinematography was the highlight, the way all the Ugandan clothes brightly popped onscreen really added a lot of character to this movie, if any of that makes sense. Some of the more intense parts like the flood scene didn't quite work for me, and I didn't find the chess scenes particularly engaging apart from the last one.

    Film #6 of August 2017 Scavenger Hunt
    Task #27: Watch a film featured on Elvira's Movie Macabre

    Vincent Price is delightful in this movie, and the atmosphere created with the sets and costumes was certainly unnerving. However there are way too many unresolved subplots, unclear character development and too many bizarre scenes to keep me from really enjoying this.
