Movie challenge...


Every Autumn/fall Jenn does a film challenge and this year I am going to join. As if I need any more excuses to watch endless amount of Tv. It is sounds like such a fun challenge and I beg you all to join in. Not as if you need any persuading when I tell you that you can win prizes. 

It starts September 1st and runs through until November 30th so you have nearly 3 months to watch 25 movies. Although it'll probably take me less than a month, I could watch movies all day everyday. You still have time to pick your movies too because lets be honest that'll be the hardest part. You can read more about the challenge and join here. 

I was thinking to myself this will be easy, 25 movies to pick no problem. Then I realised that they have to be released in the theatre and you can't of seen them before. It isn't called a challenge for no reason.

So without further adieu here are the categories. 

1| Any set in New York City- Breakfast at Tiffany's. I am so ashamed of myself that I have never watched this, such an iconic film. I cannot wait to watch this one.
2|Any incorporating hot air balloons in the story- Had to Google this one because the film I was going to choose (Up) I have already watched! So instead I am going with Casanova

3| Any featuring a child as the main character- Stand by Me.

4| Any Disney film- This is one of the hardest ones for me, I love Disney films and I am pretty sure I have watched the majority of them. I am going to go with Maleficent, I watched the trailer but never got around to watching the movie. 

5|Any set in egypt OR that has an egyptian character OR that stars an egyptian actor/actress- The Mummy. Not looking forward to this one.

6| A close friend or family member's favorite film- The Shawshank Redemption. My dads favourite film of all time and again another one that I should of seen but haven't.

7| Any with the word great in the title- The Great Gatsby. I love Leonardo DiCaprio and really enjoyed the book. 

8| Any starring Harrison Ford- The Age Of Adaline. Booked tickets to see this but was too ill to go, didn't even know Harrison Ford was in this until I looked. 

9| Any featuring an idiot as the main character- Borat.

10| Any mentioned in levis strauss' list: denim in the oscars: a look at jeans in cinema. One flew Over the Cuckoos Nest!

11| A film about a knight- Brave Heart.

12| A love story- The Notebook. I know I know, my mum loves this film but I haven't watched it.

13| A movie about something miraculous- Like Jenn Cinderella. The new one has had tons of great reviews so can't wait to see how close it is to the original. 

14| Any starring an actor/actress with the same first name as yours- My name is the most uncommon name regarding actresses so the movie will probably be the best out of a bad bunch. Scream

15| A film about the Olympics- Cool Runnings

16| A film on Time magazine's list- Citizen Kane.

17| Any with a question in the title- Did you hear about the Morgans?

18| Any with a score of ninety percent or greater on Rotten Tomatoes- Silver Linings Playbook.

19| A film about a superhero- The Avengers.

20| Any with subtitles- R.E.C My friend recommended this to me and after looking what it is about I think I could get into it.

21| Any incorporating unicorns in the story- Stardust. Copied Stephanie because I couldn't find any others I was that interested in. 

22| A film about a personal victory- The Duff. 

23| A film with black or white in the title- The Women in Black 2. Seen the first one and enjoyed it, seen it in the theatre and loved it even more but I haven't seen the second one.

24| Any set in a country you would most like to visit-  Jaws 2. The first one scared me when I watched it as a child so never watched the second one! 

25| A film set in a zoo- Zookeeper. I love Kevin James he is so funny so I hope this film follows suit.

Please don't judge me for all the iconic and great films I haven't watched yet, I much prefer Tv shows than movies. Binge watching is my style. 

If you are attempting this challenge what are your movies? Link yours below I would love to see what yours are!

  1. I'm the same way with binge watching over movies - maybe I should join the challenge, too! I might do it in winter though because there is nothing else to do but sit on the couch :)

    1. I know I am so behind on movies as you can tell by my list. I see a good one advertised and never end up watching it. I much prefer cuddling on the couch with netflix and ice cream!
      Winter is the perfect excuse to hibernate and watch movies.

  2. This sounds awesome! Winning something to watch movies? Something I already do?? haha These are all super good movies, too!! I want to see citizen Kane, I hear it is so good!

    1. Watching Tv is something I could definitely have a career in! I haven't ever heard of it but I know a few people who enjoyed it so can't wait to see what it is all about.

  3. Great list! I really struggled with the category where I had to find someone with my name as an actress in it, too!!

    1. My name is so uncommon so I really struggled finding a film I wanted to watch with my actual name in!

  4. You have fantastic choices! There are movies I've seen that are great, and there are movies I want to see. I LOVED The Great Gatsby with Leo. The settings, costumes, music, and more are all superb!

    1. I took this challenge very serious and carefully selected my choices ha! Who wants to watch something that doesn't interest them?
      I loved the book so much, studied it in school and read it for pleasure so I hope it is as enjoyable as the book! I love Leo so I am sure it will.

  5. Great choices! I really liked The Great Gatsby and Shawshank Redemption.

    1. The Shawshank Redemption is my dads favourite film, he is always begging me to watch it so I thought I would give it a go! Everyone I have spoken to have loved it so I hope I will too!
      And The Great Gatsby book I love, I have read it a few times so I hope the film does it justice.

  6. Zookeeper, Avengers and The Great Gatsby are on my list as well! Great picks!

    1. I am so excited to watch The Great Gatsby it just turned up today on DVD so I am giving it a go tonight!
      I can't wait to hear what you thought of them!

  7. i've seen your post but forgot to say thank you for posting, so THANK YOU for posting. so glad you're taking part. :]

  8. Oh man, you will LOVE The Mummy! Why are you dreading it?? It's one of my all time favorites!!!! Breakfast at Tiffany's is so good, too! I HATE The Shawshank Redemption, though... Haha!

    1. I just don't think I will like it, don't think it is my type of film but I will give anything a go!
      I can't wait to see Breakfast at Tiffany's looks like such an iconic film.
      Oh no did you really dislike it? Why was that? My dad loves it, I hope it is something I enjoy!

  9. I haven't seen several of these that I feel like I "should" have seen like Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Shawshank Redemption, and Braveheart (though that one made it onto my list for this challenge).

    I loved Silver Linings Playbook! [REC] is decent, but not my favorite foreign horror movie.

  10. Excellent picks. I've seen a lot of these. The Notebook... Oh man. Have a box of tissues at the ready. And maybe freeze some tea bags because if you cry like I do, even after seeing it 253738 times, you're going to look like you got stung right in the eye.

  11. So many great movies! Scream, Silver Linings, Stand By Me, Shawshank, even Cool Runnings. Haha! I can't wait to see what you think!
