Month Long Film Challenge: The Reviews

Last year in June, I watched a new movie every day of the entire month. This year I’d like to reprise that same challenge for the month of July. It was pretty good last year, I only managed to miss a few days worth of movies.

Seems simple enough, amended some rules to change up the movie list.

For reference, here was last year’s list.

**One Amendment**
I realized the phrase “South American” didn’t include Mexican features so a better way of putting that is “Latin American” features. I changed my rules list to better describe the movies I meant I wanted to watch.

WATCH RULES

  • 50/50 Comedies and Dramas; slot sub-genres as best as possible to comedy/drama guidelines
  • Can slot in 2 documentaries
  • At least 2 Latin American films
  • At least 5 any foreign language films
  • At least 7 films by a female director or by a female writer
  • A minimum of 15 shorts can slot in for 1 movie, music videos don’t count
  • No rewatching movies!

Soderbergh List 2017

Steven Soderbergh catalogued all his pop culture experiences as “Seen, Read 2015” on his blog for the entire year. It was simple and quaint review, an exercise in memory and taste exploration. I figured since it wasn’t too far into the year to give it a try. I want to know the things I experienced for a whole year.

A link to my 2015 list and my 2016 list.

I had to adjust the legend to suit my needs.

All caps, bold: MOVIE
All caps: TV SERIES OR ANIME (NUMBER DENOTES EPISODES WATCHED)
All italics: Book or Comic*
Quotation marks: “Live Performance, Event, Convention”

*For books and comics, the day it appears is the day I finished said book or comic.

As a rule, if I watch more than half or 2/3 of a movie or tv show to the end I count it as watched. I only count books/comics/manga if I read it to the end on that day. I mark cons on the day of. Any day not counted in the list is a day I didn’t do any activity related to the above mentioned.

Proceeds the year that was 2017:

What is the Soderbergh List

Steven Soderbergh catalogued all his pop culture experiences as “Seen, Read 2014” on his blog for the entire year. It was simple and quaint review, an exercise in memory and taste exploration. When I found this list, it was just before the beginning of 2015. I figured I could start a list asap and find out what things I experienced for a whole year.

A YEAR’S WORTH OF CATALOGUING YOURSELF
