    It Happened One Night


    Film #29 of 31 for Scavenger Hunt #31.

    Task #15: A film where two characters from opposite backgrounds fall in love.

    The opposite backgrounds are those of characters from a rich background (female lead) and the working class background (male lead). This is a gorgeous and stylish film with compelling performances and shot with mixes of medium, wide shots and tracking movement.

    Live and Let Die


    Film #28 of 31 for Scavenger Hunt #31.

    Task #26: A film featuring a scene at the United Nations, or a film starring an actor who has given a speech there.

    I liked it, the dame is beautiful, the theme song is catchy and the action was fun and entertaining.

    Film #27 of 31 for Scavenger Hunt #31.

    Task #6: A film based on a video game.

    Oh boy... oh boy... wowwee!

    I...Is that a bloodstache?

    What an unintentional comedy. Those special effects were woeful, holy crap! that line delivery and acting, so bad and dry I chuckled when the main character was having a showdown with the villain and her horrible acting negated the seriousness of her lines about rape. I can't believe Michelle Rodriguez, Sir Ben Kingsley and Michael Madsen are in this. That ending made me spit out my water for how jarring and awful the editing in that scene was.

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople


    Film #26 of 31 for Scavenger Hunt #31.

    Task #16: A film that was shot in New Zealand.

    What a charming and funny movie. Hilarious in the way that the relationship between the uncle and the boy is misunderstood by the other characters in the movie. However, it is a nice bonding movie and the jokes felt natural instead of forced.
