Challenge Accepted – Movie Edition
So over the years that my partner and I have been together there has been one common theme… hundreds of book, music and movie recommendations! Still now as we go into our 8th year together, we still frequently find out that the other hasn’t read this amazing book series, or that fantastic movie!
Last Christmas I received a set of cards in my stocking titled “Movies You Must See: 500 Top Movies Of All Time”, and it gave me a fantastic idea! The boyfriend and I should work our way backwards and watch them all! I know, I know… sounds a little ambitious right, However we are totally up for the challenge.
So the rules are that we can only skip a movie if both of us have seen it! This makes it quite amusing as its going to give us a great mix of genres! We went through the list and worked out that we have both seen just over half! That leaves us around 200 movies to get through… I know, we are crazy! But I’m looking forward to it.
We are total homebodies and our ideal night is definitely movies and popcorn. And with the winter weather really kicking in, it’s a perfect time to start!
The first 10 titles on the list:
499. The Aviator
498. Pulp Fiction
497. Dirty Dancing
495. The Bourne Identity
494. Public Enemies
493. Just Go With It
489. Vertical Limit
486. Clear and Present Danger
482. The Help
Now this is definitely going to take us a long time, and many many packets of microwave popcorn! We both have a myriad of other hobbies, so it won’t be all movies all the time. We also have an amazing 2 year old that takes up most of our time!
But no matter how long it takes, we are up for the challenge! It is going to be a lot of fun, and I plan on keeping you all updated as we go.
Are any of our first 10 movies favourites of yours?
