Fall Movie Challege

If you've been around here any length of time you know that I a) love fall; b) love challenges; and c) love movies. After seeing Stephanie's post, I was all set to join in!


The challenge starts September 1st and ends November 30th. There are 25 categories you must complete. Previously watched movies AND made for TV movies do not count; you can't double-dip; and the movie needs to have a page at IMDB.

Sounds easy enough. Here's what I chose to watch:

1| any set in New York City. Almost Famous - I find it odd I've never seen this.

2| any incorporating hot air balloons in the story. Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium - Never seen it, why not?

3| any featuring a child as the main character. Kids - Another movie I've never seen. Although, because I know what this is about, I think I've been actively avoiding it.

4| any Disney film. Inside Out - I've been dying to see this movie.
5| any set in Egypt OR that has an Egyptian character OR that stars an Egyptian actor/actress.  Exodus: Gods and Kings

6| a close friend or family member's favorite film. Pride & Prejudice - I couldn't tolerate the book but I'm sure I can manage the movie. All for you Kristen!

7| any with the word great in the title. The Great Outdoors

8| any starring Harrison Ford. Cowboys & Aliens - I remember seeing the trailer for this and wanting to see it.

9| any featuring an idiot as the main character. The Pink Panther (the original)

10| any mentioned in Levis Srauss' list: denim in the Oscars: a look at jeans in cinema. Thelma & Louise - It's sad I've never seen this. I'm a big fan of these types of movies.

11| a film about a knight. Season of the Witch - Because anything with Nic Cage is a bad comedy, no matter what it's about.

12| a love story. Casanova

13| a movie about something miraculous.  127 Hours

14| any starring an actor/actress with the same first name as yours. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Michael Cera)  Gnomeo & Juliet or Kingsman: The Secret Service (Michael Caine)

15| a film about the Olympics. Miracle - K owns this. I've avoided it because I'm one of those rare people who doesn't give a rat's tail about the Olympics.

16| a film on time magazine's list: the top ten newspaper movies. His Girl Friday - my favorite time period for movies. Black & whites are the mac N cheese of the movie world.

17| any with a question in the title. Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf? - I've borrowed this from the library at least twice and I always just look at it sitting on the table. Time to finally watch it.

18| any with a score of ninety percent or greater on rotten tomatoes. Skyfall - I'm not a fan of Daniel Craig {bring back Pierce!} but I do love the 007 movies.

19| a film about a superhero. X-Men: Days of Future Past

20| any with subtitles. Let the Right One In - I already know I'm not going to like this.

21| any incorporating unicorns in the story. My Little Pony: Twinkle Wish Adventure - Yeah, I'm copping out on this one.

22| a film about a personal victory. Southpaw - I don't this needs an explanation.

23| a film with black or white in the title. Black or White 

24| any set in a country you would most like to visit. Tristan + Isolde (Ireland)

25| a film set in a zoo. Zookeeper - It's been somewhere on my never-ending "To See" list. Plus, Kevin James is hysterical.

So that's my list. Are you joining in? Any suggestions for something better?
