    The Night of a Thousand Cats

    Scavenger Hunt #33, Task #2: Watch a Latin-American horror film.

    I would never have watched "The Night of a Thousand Cats" if it weren't for Letterboxd, and now I have. So, um, thank you, Letterboxd? I guess.

    Anyway, this is one of the stupidest fucking movies in existence. (This dude owns 1,000 cats, and has just shown you his collection of female heads in jars. I don't fucking care if he claims they're "wax." Maybe run instead of kissing him,…

    The Shop Around the Corner

    ★★★★½

    Scavenger Hunt #33, Task #5: Watch a Jimmy Stewart movie that's not "It's a Wonderful Life" or any of his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock.

    "The Shop Around the Corner" is best known as a screwball romance, but should be more accurately considered a workplace comedy that is basically what a season of "The Office" would have looked like had it been produced during the 1930's.

    It might be unfair to judge "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" in 2017, with "The Force Awakens" and "Wonder Woman" fairly fresh in the mind, and with Charlize Theron going full Neeson and in the process becoming the greatest action star in the world. (Sincerest apologies to the Rock. An apathetic shrug of the shoulders to Vin Diesel.)

    However, them's the breaks, and while this movie doesn't fall completely…

  • Crank

    Crank

    ★★★

    Scavenger Hunt #31, Task #19: A film featuring a Linkin Park song or a cameo by Chester Bennington.

    "Crank" is what would happen if you took a Limp Bizkit music video, tried to insert a plot, and extended the running time to 90 minutes. Limp Bizkit makes me laugh, and so did "Crank."

    Unlike other movies that aim to be ironically stupid and end up just being stupid, "Crank" has some actual wit to it. However, "Crank" is also unrepentant trash. Did I enjoy this movie? I don't even know. My head hurts.
