This is the perfect challenge for me because I'm always watching films. I think I can reach a 100 however for the moment it's just going to be 50. And then once I get to that milestone I'll shoot for the other 50. Also perhaps it will help me finally cut down on my Netflix que... I have a total of about 140 movies on my list at the moment. Also, I must warn people that my movie list is kinda crummy at the moment, my sister has been picking out the films we watch the last few weeks. I'm still trying to get her to broaden her mind though. Also I'm taking a psychology and film class at the moment so I think I'm going to star the one's I watch in class, incase anyone else is interested in that sort of thing.

1. No Strings Attached
2. Rise of The Planet of The Apes
3. Tangled
4. The Artist
5. Eat, Pray, Love*
6. Mulan
7. Half Nelson

Here's a link to the iCheckMovies topic that was created a few months ago, in case anybody wants to share their usernames or chat about the site.

^That's a great site. I was surprised at how few of the "Best/Classic" films I've watched.

I wish I could include the movies I watched late 2011, because I watched SO many in December. However, there are still quite a lot of films I need to see before the Oscars.


01. Letters to Juliet
02. Scary Movie 2

^I never realized how many movies I haven't seen until I went onto ICheckMovies. Now I'm addicted to checking off the one's I have seen and making a list of the ones I want to see. Thanks for sharing the link.

Is it weird that I don't find 100 movies a lot & 365 isn't that much of a challenge??

I can see a 100 in about 2-3 months so if there's anybody wanting to know if there's a movie worth seeing, I'm probably your guy but I'm intrigued & accept your challenge

I'm in! Much easier than the book challenge, at which I failed miserably It's actually one of my New Year's resolutions to watch every movie in this book; it also doesn't hurt that I'll be "helping out" at a small film festival, which will force me to watch, like, eight movies per week :p

So here goes! My recommends are in bold

1. A Scanner Darkly (Richard Linklater, 2006)
2. The Room (Tommy Wiseau, 2003)
3. Invasion of Alien Bikini (Young-doo Oh, 2011)
4. Alucarda, a.k.a Sisters of Satan (Juan López Monteczuma, 1978)
5. 3 Women (Robert Altman, 1977)
6. Code Blue (Urszula Antoniak, 2011)
7. Dernière Séance (Laurent Achard, 2010)
8. L'enfer d'Henri Georges Clouzot, a.k.a Inferno (Serge Bromberg & Ruxanda Medrea, 2009)


I should point out that since the festival I work at is pretty off-kilter and B-movie oriented, nobody should expect to find many films d'auteur in my list so far But if you're in a weird mood and have some time to kill, go ahead and check some of these out...ESPECIALLY THE ROOM. I swear you won't believe your eyes, and I mean this in the most honest of ways

This sounds like a fun thing to try! I think I'm more likely to read the 50 books than to watch 100 movies, but one can always try. I'll try to remember post here from time to time and update my list.

I think my own personal challenge this year is to watch more non-english language movies, maybe around 5 in finnish and around 15 in any other than finnish or english.

my list so far:

1. The King's speech (2010, dir. Tom Hooper, country: UK)
2. Sleepy Hollow (1999, dir. Tim Burton, country: USA & Germany)
