    Film #11 of Scavenger hunt 34
    Task #1: A film from AngelMonkey's most loved films list

    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:…

    Film #5 of Scavenger Hunt 34

    I was literally in the only year level at high school that didn't end up studying the film and play, so it took me way too long to see 12 Angry Men. I can honestly say I can't think of anything I disliked about it. It got me so invested in the story and it felt surprisingly accessible to a modern audience.
