Update: My Picks for the October 31-Day Movie Challenge

I originally wrote about this challenge in early September [find it here] and since then, I’ve had lots of time to think about which prompts I’d like to follow and which films match those prompts. A few of you who read my original post have asked me to share my film choices, so that’s precisely what I’ll be doing here today!

I know I’ll never be able to complete the entire 31-day challenge, so I’ve decided to go with the prompts that most appeal to me and focus solely on those. Here are the ones I’ve chosen, followed by the films that match those prompts:

The Movie You’ve Rewatched the MostThe Wizard of Oz (1939)

A Movie That Makes You CryCall Me By Your Name (2017)

A Movie That Makes You LaughAbbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

A Movie from the ’90sThe Craft (1996)

A Movie with A Person’s Name In the TitleThe Diary of Anne Frank (1959)

Your Favourite Rom-ComFour Weddings & A Funeral (1994)

Your Favourite Horror FlickDracula (1931)

A Film Based On A BookNosferatu (1922)

A Movie that Stars Your Favourite Actor/ActressThe Reader (2008)

Your Favourite Holiday MovieIt’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

A Movie with the Best SoundtrackReality Bites (1994) & Sing Street (2016)

So, if I’m doing my math correctly, that makes 12 movies I’ll be watching during the month of October. I’m totally comfortable with that number and I think I’ve kinda hit the sweet spot with twelve. Any more than that would have felt … like a burden? Like too much pressure? Twelve movies is a number I can work with.

Will you be doing the October 31-Day Movie Challenge this year? I’d love to hear which films you’ll be watching – leave me a comment!

    1. The Craft was one of my favourite movies when I was in high school – ah the memories! Yeah, it’s a pretty popular challenge online. I know a few people who are doing it, although there’s no way I could do the whole thing.
