The 100 Movie Challenge (2012)
To coincide with the 50 Book Challenge for 2012 i thought it'd be a great idea to do a movie challenge, i do have some ideas on movies I'm interested in watching that i haven't watched just yet but first i would like to hear everyone else's suggestions on other interesting titles they'd like to watch or have watched and think they'd make a great suggestion for us.

I'm definitely in! I watch like 100 movies every year xD
I want to watch some of the movies that are nominated for the Oscars like The Descendants, Hugo, Midnight In Paris etc.
I recently watched The Help. I really liked it!
I also watched the new version of Wuthering Heights last week. It wasn't worthy of the book in my opinion.

^ I think movies nominated is a good start. I haven't seen many. I did see Hugo and it was very good, I love it. The music and art direction was amazing.

Count me in! Now I know this is a challenge that I can end up completing. I know I watch more then 50 films a year. Also, I was wondering if a mini-series count? Sometimes they are categorized as films and sometimes as tv shows.

365 day movie challenge... now that IS hardcore! my god!

Yeah, we could count a series as one, say it was like Saw that has 6 or 7 in its series, that wouldn't be THAT ridiculous to do.

Just a couple so far :

The Pianist

Drive (Released on DVD 30th of January)

To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar - (It's really old from the 90's and a comedy)

My Week With Marilyn

Batman : Dark Knight Rises (Released in Cinemas 20th of July 2012)

Saturday Night Fever - (This is one of my favorite films, ever, and i think its one of those films everyone has to see in their life time)

Last year I've seen 287 new-to-me films, this year 53 so far.

Maybe we can specify to categories/lists like in icheckmovies?
*promised myself I'd pay more attention to Asian cinema (with my current count only 8 were Asians, obviously failing miserably I should be ashamed of myself)... Maybe it'll movitate me more

I'm totally in! I'm such a movieholic! I've watched about 20 films this year. I'd like to pay more attention to awarded and nominated movies this year, especially those which have got GGs and Oscars or were nominated to those. I came up with the idea after watching Silence of the Lambs and Winter's Bone few weeks ago.

^Yeah, i think that might be a good idea.

I think if we all nominate afew movies within the next week or so whilst others join in on the challenge, might be a good idea and then we take a vote on the first movie.

I think everyone should freely pick their movies, because most likely everyone here has a different taste and the amount of movies you want to count should stay within the person's judment. Like the book challenge, we could give reviews and recommend movies

I've seen 17 movies so far and I would like them to count.
