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 Most – The Wizard of Oz (1939)
A Movie That Makes You Cry – Call Me By Your Name (2017)
A Movie That Makes You Laugh – Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
A Movie from the ’90s – The Craft (1996)
A Movie with A Person’s Name In the Title – The Diary of Anne Frank (1959)
Your Favourite Rom-Com – Four Weddings & A Funeral (1994)
Your Favourite Horror Flick – Dracula (1931)
A Film Based On A Book – Nosferatu (1922)
A Movie that Stars Your Favourite Actor/Actress – The Reader (2008)
Your Favourite Holiday Movie – It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
A Movie with the Best Soundtrack – Reality 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.
