Recently, I watched the 250th movie in the Film Watch challenge. That makes me halfway through what seemed like an impossible task when I first wrote it down – to watch 500 films – but is now looking achievable. Well, perhaps not so much at the moment, as the last couple of months have seen any sofa-bound watching delayed by Olympics and the like, but still… 250 films and counting. Incredible. Here’s a recap of the last fifty.
201. Captain America: The First Avenger 4/5
This was the final Avengers film we had to watch before the big movie itself. Turns out there’s ages to wait. Also, did we know they’re calling it the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Catchy.
Star Trek and Crazy, Stupid, Love were two of the best films and watched back-to-back makes them even better. Particularly coming off the back of the first Mission Impossible movie in the franchise, which was a surprising disappointment.
An eclectic selection of films, from the highs of a James Bond satire to the lows of an unlikeable character spurning love at every opportunity despite it being right outside her door. Literally.
The accents. Oh dear god, the accents!
A really good run of movies here, with the Scott brothers providing some entertainment, as well as a bit of Matt Damon and Hugh Jackman. What more can a girl ask, really?
Moneyball, along with The Descendants which comes later, were two surprises for me – films I thought I wasn’t really going to like, but ended up adoring.
There’s just something about Clueless that gets under your skin, because it’s hard to relate to any of the characters but they are all fabulous!
I’m so glad I liked this one. It’s not up there with the Christmas Carol, but it was still heaps of fun.
So good! I want to see it again.
As this is the official halfway point of the Life List challenge, I’ve got just a little bit more evaluation coming soon, but for now, bring on more (and hopefully better!) films!
