The Fall Film Challenge is back, my friends!
I skipped it last year because reasons, but I decided I’m back and ready to go for 2017 because, why not?
Maybe I have a little bit of an unfair advantage here because I already have to watch a lot of movies anyway. But, in some ways, that actually makes this MORE of a challenge because I have to find movies that fit into the categories.
So…here’s my list. A few of these are going to elicit reactions of, “You’ve never seen THAT??” No, no I haven’t. Wanna make something of it? In fact, a few of them are on my 2017 First Time Viewing List, so…you know, two birds and all that.
And if you decide to join in (which you totally should because it’s fun and also there are prizes), you can just head right over to the group on Facebook. But only if you’re legit. If a bunch of spammy types go bug Jenn, the awesome founder of this party, I’m going to be super mad on her behalf.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Fall Film Challenge begins at 12:01 AM on September 1 and ends at 11:59 PM on November 30. This list is phase 1. She introduces a bonus round somewhere around the halfway point for extra fun. Yes, it’s a lot of movies. But, movies are life, amiright?
