50(or 100) Movies in 2008 Challenge
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:05:11 PM »

Take part in a challenge to watch 50 movies this year!

The original challenge is for 100 movies, but I think 50 is more doable... However, if you want to go for 100, nobody's stopping ye! :muffin:
I know that Masa at least watches tons of movies! That pimp!

Only one rule: If you watch a movie more than once a year you can list it again if you haven't already listed it in the current month...
(The challenge is from LiveJournal, dunno who came up with it)

How to take part? Well, it would be cool if you posted in this thread and kept a note of every movie you've seen each month. January, February, and so on. It's the cleanest if you make one post and then edit it as you "progress".

But you can post any comments related to the challenge, the movies you've seen etc. in this thread as well, to keep it from falling to page 2. ;) 

Me, I don't watch a lot of movies, but I'd like to watch more... So that's why I'll try to succeed in this challenge!

Man, I made the challenge way too easy...

And it's all because people on IRC were saying "I don't watch that many movies!!" Damnit...

If you watch a LOT of movies, then set the bar higher for yourself, too! :P What's the point in trying to reach 100 if you usually watch 300... :lol: It's no challenge then! lol

Anyway I hope everyone will have fun with this.. ^_^

I don't watch that many movies, I'd say around 50 a year, maybe...

January - Watched 11
 - Good Luck Chuck - worth watching only for the T&A.
 - Persepolis - Excellent, funny, twisted.. Not your usually animation.
 - There Will Be Blood - Voted as being the 23rd best movie ever made... I think not.
 - Charlie Wilson's War - Made by Americans, for Americans.
 - ただ、君を愛してる / Tada Kimi Wo Aitaeeru - Excellent tearjerker.
 - Smokin' Aces - (seen before) - Extremely underrated.
 - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street - Fuckin' Brilliant!!
 - The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - Incredibly Boring.
 - Juno - Average.
 - Aliens vs Predator - Requiem - Crap.
 - Alvin and the Chipmunks - great for kids (and fans of Earl Hickey).

Best for the month: Persepolis & Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Worst for the month: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem.

February - Watched 6
 - Rambo - Some people just don't know when to call it quits.
 - Michael Clayton - Pretty good, but doesn't deserve to win any awards... (not even nomination worthy)
 - In the Valley of Elah - The most powerful movie I've seen in years!! Loved it!!
 - Eastern Promises - The Academy Awards are rigged if Viggo Mortensen doesn't win!!

I'd say that TV movies do count! A movie is a movie is a movie...

What are these 2hr drama specials?? Got an example?? If it's a TV series special, then I wouldn't count it...

EDIT: I think as long as it's listed as a movie, it counts...
