    Things I Like, Things I Don't Like

    ★★★★★

    Due to some technical issues, and removed titles, I probably passed this milestone a hundred musings ago – but at the time of this writing, Juenet’s Foutaisesis is my 2000th review on Letterboxd. Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me on here, and apologies if I’ve started to lose steam over the past few months.

    ★★½

    Time to kick Hooptober into gear with this killer elephant movie, which uses a title reminiscent of JAWS as it related to the protruding front teeth of no doubt blood thirsty pachyderms. Psych. All the promises of creature feature horror soon melt away, as Tusks is actually a melodramatic thriller about poaching. Once the initial disappointment of the bait and switch fades, a different disappointment sets in...
