This will be my third year participating in Jenn of Quirky Pickings Fall Film Challenge!

It starts on September 1st and ends at midnight on November 30th. Rule are no repeats (in any capacity), must be theater releases, and there’s a points penalty for switching films mid-challenge.

|one| starring Anthony Hopkins: Thor
|two| listed on nathan bransford’s best hundred movies challenge: The Big Lebowski
|three| about charity: It’s Kind of a Funny Story
|four| starring Robert Downey, Jr.: Iron Man
|five| about envy: As Good As It Gets
|six| about faith: War Room
|seven| about greed: The Founder
|eight| about hope: Sing
|nine| starring Jeremy Irons: Casanova

|twelve| about lust: The Virgin Suicides
|thirteen| starring Ian McKellen: Mr. Holmes
|fourteen| set in a castle: Gosford Park

|twenty-two| about wrath: X-Men: Apocalypse

I actually feel pretty confident about these films. Some I’ve been meaning to see for a while (Thor, Iron Man, Driving Miss Daisy, Crazy Stupid Love, The Magnificent 7) and some are based on books I”m currently or soon-to-be reading (Coraline, The Virgin Suicides).

Have you seen any of these? What would you pick? (You can still join!)

    The Dude! Big Lebowski is funny, I’m glad it’s on your list. Good luck!

      I feel silly that I’ve never seen it! I think it’s one of my brother in law’s favorites, haha.

    I honestly cant believe I havent seen SING yet. I’m disappointed in myself. 😉


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:37 am

      I’m so glad that half of these are on Netflix- including Sing, I think! Go watch it!!

    A good mix of movies! My favorites listed are Star Trek Beyond (actually rewatched it the other day) and Best in Show. I want to see Mr. Homes (big Sherlock Holmes fan), so I’m anxious to hear what you thought about it. Good luck!


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:38 am

      As a dog lover I’m so shocked that I’ve never put on Best in Show. Also, I LOVE the first two Star Treks so I’m not sure why it’s taken so long for me to watch these! I’m glad you liked those films- hopefully I will, too!


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:39 am

      K and I used to watch movies all. the. time. At home, at the theater, wherever! We rarely do now, but usually he watches a few with me when I do this challenge so I love that it’s something we can do together 🙂


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:40 am

      Yay! I’m so excited to hear that 🙂 I typically love kids’ movies. Hahaha!

    hey lady! i’m SO glad you’re participating again. i love doing this. :]

    i’ve got your photos loaded. could you paste your list to the facebook page for me, please?

    of the films on your list, i liked thor, iron man, as good as it gets, crazy stupid love and star trek beyond. i’ve seen casanova, coraline, driving miss daisy and at first sight, but i didn’t love them. the rest i’ve not seen in their entirety, so i can’t tell you much about them. i do think you’ve made good choices, overall, though, and wish you luck!


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:41 am

      I meant to put that list on FB right away! My bad. It’s there now 😉
      My brother has been on my to see Crazy, Stupid, Love. for years and years. He’ll be so happy when I finally watch it 🙂 Also, I’m determined to make my way through the Marvel superhero films so this will totally help!

    Woah, that’s a lot of films. Well, for me it is since I average about one film a year haha. Although there are a few on here that I would be interesting in seeing in principle, so I might just go and watch the trailers instead!

    Good luck with your challenge!


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:42 am

      Hey stranger! Haha!

      I am TERRIBLE about watching movies, but so many of these are ones I’ve been meaning to see so hopefully I slow down and remember to turn them on throughout the fall 🙂


  6. Nadine August 18, 2017 / 12:09 pm

    Crazy Stupid Love is one of my favorite movies!!! Other than that, As Good as it Gets and Driving Miss Daisy…I dont think I have seen the others.


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:43 am

      My brother LOVES that movie (and Ryan Gosling). I can’t tell you how many times he’s begged me to watch it. He’ll be glad I finally am 🙂


  7. Laura August 18, 2017 / 9:02 pm

    I’ve seen, and love, Driving Miss Daisy!!


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 11:43 am

      I honestly can’t believe I’ve never seen it. I’m excited to finally check it off soon!


  8. akaleistar August 19, 2017 / 2:08 pm

    So many good movies! I’m very tempted to do this challenge 🙂


  9. Carolann August 19, 2017 / 3:16 pm

    This sounds like a great challenge!! There are so many great movies I’ve never seen. I tend to just watch TV shows, but when I am home at night I am going to pull out this list and hopefully cross a few off myself! Thanks for sharing.


    • Louise August 22, 2017 / 2:31 pm

      I’m pretty bad about actually seeing movies I’ve been wanting to see. Hopefully this challenge gives me a little kick when I have free evenings and I’m not in the mood to read 😉


  10. Jessica J-Marie August 20, 2017 / 7:15 pm

    This is such a great idea! I may just have to get in on this action.


  11. kristen August 25, 2017 / 2:44 pm

    oh i hope you like Crazy, Stupid, Love! it’s one i’ve seen multiple times and really enjoyed. i don’t watch a lot of movies and then i will watch like 10 in one weekend, there is no balance lol


    • Louise August 28, 2017 / 8:46 am

      I always say, “Oh I want to see that,” but then I NEVER watch movies. I’m hoping a challenge will force me to slow down and sit down, and watch somethings that I’ve been meaning to get to! (Like Crazy, Stupid, Love. haha!)
