I’m not very good at these challenges… (Remember my reading one? Refresh yourself HERE. Yeah… I’m still getting through the first book. So embarrassing…) Anyway, practice makes perfect and this challenge is hopefully do-able. There are prizes and such, but I want to participate for fun so I’m not concerned about that! Plus, I have from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30 so I’ll at least cross off one or two movies… ha!
You can find the official rules HERE. Essentially I have to pick 25 movies that had/have theatrical releases and watch them. I can’t watch any that I’ve seen before. My goal is pick a few that I know K will watch with me!

. . .
A few afterthoughts: No, I have never seen Tangled. That’s a little weird for me, especially since I love Disney movies and K has actually seen it. I lucked out sharing a name with Audrey Hepburn! Can you tell I don’t like movies with violence? I think half my picks are kid movies… I don’t know if The Grand Budapest Hotel has personal victories, but Wes Anderson tends to give his characters little victories at the end so I’m going with it 😉 I pray most of these are on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime… ha!
