    I'm not overly sure how I feel about this movie. It took a little to get going but once the mystery got going it started to pick up. It had its moments of brilliance but in the long run it was far from a home run for me.

    Lost against The Thin Man (1934)


    This movie ticked so many boxes for me that I couldn't help but like it. The only issue I really had was a cultural one which made it hard feel for the struggles of these Brooklynites, it seemed to go just a touch past my understanding of them. Still a good watch all the same.

    Scavenger Hunt #43
    1/31
    Task 1. Choose a movie from my list of my 5* Movies.


    I don't normally choose rewatches in the Scavenger Hunts, always trying to watch new things but since I'm hosting and one of the tasks was to watch one of my favourite movies than I had no choice in the matter.

    Since I had to watch one I thought why not get it out of the way so I could settle in to watching the 30 new-to-me movies.

    I have always been a big Van Damme fan and it is between this movie and Universal Soldier which one I love more.

    My thoughts on this movie changed as it went on, going up and down on whether I liked the movie or I didn't. In the end I knew the movie was cheesy going into it and it lived up to expectations. Therefore I couldn't really take that away from it so it eventually got a score slightly on the plus side from me.
