The Movie Challenge (2017) #1: Movie Madness

The Movie Challenge 2017

Welcome to the 8th annual movie challenge thread! For those who are first time participants, the point of this thread is to set goals for ourselves to see how many movies we can watch in 1 year. As always, what counts as a movie is completely up to you! They can be re-watches, rentals, movies that you see on the big screen, direct-to-video movies, Lifetime movies, short films, etc. It's your list, so you make the rules! If you just want a place to record your movie watching without making a goal, that's fine too! So come on in and join the fun!

Note: I took the initiative and started up this thread. Hope I am not treading on anyone's toes. Feel free to take full control back whenever you want.

1. Whiteout (2009) 3/5
Nifty little thriller that's good to watch when it's cold outside.
2. Bedazzled (2000) 3/5
Really fun movie with a nice message.
3. My Blueberry Nights (2007) 3/5
Indie drama about the pain of love.
4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) 2/5
Just too silly. Matt Smith is a delight though.
5. My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) 4/5
Can't believe this film is 20 years old. Really love it.
6. The Duff (2015) 4/5
I wasn't expecting much from this but I loved it! Great script.
7. Russell Brand from Addiction to Recovery (2012) 3/5
Interesting documentary about addiction and how much more could be done to help addicts.
8. Dior and I (2014) 4/5
I adore fashion documentaries because the craftsmanship behind the clothes is phenomenal. People dismiss fashion, the arts, anything creative so swiftly, and I really think it is the closest to being truly alive that a person can be.
9. Arrival (2016) 4/5
Fantastic.
10. And the Oscar Goes To... (2014) 3/5
I don't know how insightful it was but I enjoyed it.
11. La La Land (2016) 4/5
I thought it was a bit derivative but it went in an interesting direction.
12. Fury (2014) 2/5
Not a bad film, just really not my thing.
13. Basic Instinct (1992) 3/5
So trashy but enjoyable.
14. Pentatonix: On My Way Home (2015) 3/5
Really just skimmed the surface but these guys are so talented.
15. The Interview (2014) 3/5
Not exactly a mature comedy, but some parts are really funny.
16. Manchester by the Sea (2016) 3/5
It was a sad film.
17. The Purge: Anarchy (2014) 3/5
Really effective thriller, particularly because the premise behind it is so strong.
