    Death By Film Scavenger Hunt

    Sir Hiss was my fave. As penance, my bf will be bankrolling a Sir Hiss-starring vehicle to make up for his LIES (that there was already a Sir Hiss follow-on to this).

    ETA: My boyfriend was very sweet and got me a Sir Hiss Funko Pop for Valentine's Day in 2021. I love it, of course, but he's still a little scamp. <3

    Having Montgomery Clift and Cary Grant as two of the leads would've been very interesting. Boo at the stigma with "it."

I also appreciated the binary and reincarnation jokes.

    The songs that I noted…

    Film Club #19 | picked by Lenon Mello

    I'm not really a fan of high school anime and I had read the novella The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is based on several years ago and rated it a 2/5, so I didn't have high expectations for this one. However, from what I remember, the story in the anime is far more fleshed out than in the novella. I also really liked the cast for the English dub and Makoto…
