I’m back with another exciting update 😉 (Here’s the September update.) Only one more month until the challenge is over! This month was not a great movie month for me, but that’s because October is the best time to go outside and do stuff… I did check a few off the list, though!!
Dear White People (October 11)
Um… I knew I was getting into a racial charged film when I selected it on hulu, but danggg… I’m glad that I watched it, but it was quite controversial. I know it was supposed to make you think about racial inequality (and it does), but it’s a little confusing to understand each character and their background, especially with all the big words. That sounds so basic, but it’s true. I did like how the story flowed and how all the characters had strengths and weaknesses. I give it 6 out of 10 stars.
The Grand Budapest Hotel (October 12)
Wes Anderson is such a kooky bird. I think you have to be in a certain mood to watch & enjoy his films. I was not in the mood when I went for it. I chose this movie for a “personal victory” and while I stand by that label, it was a weird one. I wasn’t surprised by the movie’s strangeness, I was just disappointed that I didn’t enjoy it more. Oh well. This one gets 4 out of 10 stars.
Point so far: 80/200 (each movie is 10 points)
Additionally, a bonus round was issued on October 15th (I think these are “the most disliked actors” list) and you can’t change your movie choice once it’s made…. So here are my picks:
one: Anne Hathaway | The Intern
two: Ben Stiller | Megamind
three: Miley Cyrus | The Last Song
four: Vin Diesel | Fast & Furious 6
five: Eddie Murphy | Dreamgirls
six: Will Ferrell | The Other Guys
seven: Gwyneth Paltrow | Iron Man
eight: Katie Holmes | The Romantics
nine: Ione Skye | Fever Pitch
ten: Jonah Hill | Moneyball
eleven: Ashton Kutcher | Annie
twelve: Justin Long | Planet 51
thirteen: Maggie Gyllenhaal | Won’t Back Down
fourteen: Nicolas Cage | The Family Man
fifteen: Owen Wilson | Cars 2
sixteen: Pauly Shore | I can’t… I can’t even stomach a movie by this guy.
seventeen: John C. Reilly | Never Been Kissed
eighteen: Sylvester Stallone | Antz
nineteen: Tyler Perry | The Single Moms Club
twenty: Channing Tatum | She’s the Man
twenty-one: Vince Vaughn | The Lost World: Jurassic Park (ha, yeah right… but maybe (yeah right))
twenty-two: Patrick Wilson | Morning Glory
twenty-three: Megan Fox | The Dictator
twenty-four: Gary Busey | Entourage
twenty-five: Renee Zellwegger | Bridget Jones’s Diary
So…. We’ll see how I do with this list, too. Geeeez.
Have you seen any of these films? What good ones did you watch this month?
