Movie Challenge Accomplished

So it turned out a few things contributed to my already hitting the 10 movie challenge I set out for myself. First: I got incredibly sick with a cold I couldn’t shake. I thought I was well last MONDAY and still stayed home a couple days last week.

(I still feel pretty miserable!)

The second thing that helped is quite a few of you sent me your top movies from the past couple of decades and so it became quite easy to find ten worth watching though most were from the past couple of years.

Here’s the list of movies I watched. They weren’t in any particular order, just ones that I’d heard about or was curious about.

  1. Moneyball
  2. Death of Stalin
  3. Arrival
  4. Mad Max: Fury Road
  5. Sorry to Bother You
  6. Annihilation
  7. Game Night
  8. Blockers
  9. Baby Driver
  10. Dunkirk

I signed up for Letterboxd (/andretorrez) and will leave some reviews in there soon.

I liked all the movies I watched. SORRY TO BOTHER YOU lived up to the hype. GAME NIGHT was better than I expected. ARRIVAL was based on a short story I’d read a few years ago. I didn’t realize this until the first few minutes and my brain was trying to resolve how I’d seen the movie without ever having seen the movie. I also regret not seeing MAD MAX: FURY ROAD at the theaters like everyone said to do.

Thanks to everyone who sent me suggestions! I still have a long list of movies to watch.

(I also watched a few kids movies with the kids. Both PADDINGTON movies are great!)
