Movie Challenge 2014
To coincide with the book challenge, we have the movie challenge for the film buffs! Share your lists and post recommendations!

If you wish to check out the previous year's challenges, here they are:
Movie Challenge 2012

Movie Challenge 2013

In 2013, I watched over 200 movies, I doubt I will get that much in this year. I'm going for 100, I really want a decent amount to be documentaries or foreign films.

what do you mean how's that possible? when you have constantly (I try to be up to date with new movies as well) over 100 movies that you haven't seen, it's a hard task but do-able I'm kidding... but yeah, I guess I just have enough free time... I always see a movie before going to bed + if I got extra time 1 more during the day. I love seeing movies.

I think it's possible as I don't watch television and aside from being on the fashion spot, I don't really use the internet that much, aside from watching films. A film is only normally around 1.30mins to 2.00 hour's, so I think there is enough time like you said in the evening to watch a film. But because I watch a film nearly everyday, i find it unusual not to watch something as I am so used to watching film's on a regular basis.

exactly... I don't watch tv at all as well, and like you said, if a movie lasts around 1.30 mins I'm totally up for another one, if it's a 3hour long movie then I try to watch the first half one day and the next half the next day.

now some people don't know what to see, I'm always going through various movies lists/suggestions to get ideas so I make my own list of movies I'd wish to see, otherwise I would forget half of them.

I'm game for another year of watching films, it's a bit mind boggling though that this will be my third year of keeping track of what films I watch on tfs! I didn't technically make it to 100 films last year because I didn't count my re-watches but that's alright, some years are better then others, eh?

One goal I have for this year is to watch more films by female directors, I love following the film industry but at the same time when I look at how many female directed films I've seen, it doesn't even come close to the number of films directed by men. To me it's really important that women and men have equal representation in film and this little challenge is my way of becoming more aware of all these wonderful female directors! I've started making a list of films that I want to see and I'm hoping to tackle almost all of them. It would be awesome if half of my list was directed by women but who knows, we shall see!

to kickstart the year:

001 Clear History
002 American Hustle
003 About Time

I also decided to give a movie 15 minutes, if I´m not hooked by that time I don´t bother to continue watching. Lots of good movies to watch to waste time in mediocre ones...
