Scavenger Hunt 53
Task 22: Watch a Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar winner

When my therapist tells me I need to stop overthinking things it's really hard to do when you can just be forgotten by everyone because you ate 2 grapes. 

The movie started out by moving a lot faster than I expected. I knew about the Pale Man scene but I expected that to come towards the middle of the third act but that scene was over like 45 minutes into the movie. I enjoyed how it just kinda of said that it was going to be more than just a fairy tale, and I was excited to see what was happening next. When thjs happens, I like to call it "good cinema". 

The creatures also looked really cool and the Pale Man looked terrifying. I don't know why I thought this was aimed at a slightly younger audience but after seeing the walls in the Pale Man's little hut he has going on there I liked how it went for a much more adult tone. Don't ask me why I thought it was for a younger audience it isn't relevant, plus that was a few years ago. 

I think the scariest part of this movie besides the monsters is the overuse of the "vosotros" tense. My teachers keep saying that no one uses this tense but this movie slapped my teachers across the face and said "vosotros sois incorrectos" and I applaud them for that. 

If for some reason you haven't seen it I don't know what you're doing this is a classic. It's also really good.
