I was browsing through one of my other blogs today (the one of which I’m most proud), and came across the “30 Day Movie Challenge.” It might be cheating to redo a post into a new blog; however, I know the list will be different, so I thought it would be fun to put it together. But you know what? While I do a lot of physical travelling, most of my adventures are in imaginary worlds — whether books, movies, or my own imagination.
I don’t know how the current weather is where you are, but the area where I live has been fluctuating like nobody’s business. It’s supposed to be winter, but there have been a few days of chilly weather and a lot of early summer temperatures >:-[. So, whether it’s cold and you cuddle up with hot cocoa and a blanket, or it’s hot and you lie on the floor in a tank top and shorts, any weather can be perfect movie night weather.
I came across this 30 Day Movie Challenge from TheaterThoughts.com, posted a couple years ago. Basically, every day for thirty days you watch a different type of movie based on your tastes. Get ready for movie night x 30!
While it would be just fine to fill out the list as you go through the month, I’m doing it all at once for the sake of the blog.
The hardest part will be to prevent duplicates… Some movies are the best in several categories :/.
30 Day Movie Challenge
Day 01 – The best movie you saw during the last year: Interstellar
Day 02 – The most underrated movie: John Carter
Day 03 – A movie that makes you really happy: The Impostors (I’m not even sure why, haha)

Day 05 – Favourite love story in a movie: Made of Honor
Day 06 – Favourite made-for-TV movie: Stargate: Continuum
Day 07 – The most surprising plot twist or ending: Angel’s Dance (I was so surprised, in fact, that I felt like “what was the point of watching all that happened in the movie?” 😦 )
Day 08 – A movie that you’ve seen countless times: All of my favourites ;), but for the sake of the challenge, Spider-Man 2

Day 15 – A character to whom you can relate the most: Andy Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada (fashion-wise)

Day 17 – A movie that disappointed you the most: Thor: The Dark World (I mean, seriously, the bad guy — played by one of my favourite actors — was barely in it, and had terrible makeup! And the ultimate bad guy had maybe two minutes of screen time! What was the point?! I guess I should have expected that from a sequel… OK, I’m calm…)
Day 18 – A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (I would LOVE to relive the rest of the book series in movies…)
Day 19 – Favourite movie based on a book/comic/etc.: The Three Musketeers (1993) (despite the fact that it bears little resemblance to the book at all)
Day 20 – Favourite movie from a favorite actor/actress: Jeremy Renner in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol

Day 30 – Your favourite movie of all time: 2012 (JUST “2012″… Not 2012: Ice Age or 2012: Doomsday.)
