The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

You know those movies you've been always "going to watch" but you've never gotten around to seeing it? Now's the time to get the push you've needed to start watching them. It doesn't have to be film classics, it can just be stuff that you've bought recently and haven't seen yet, like the latest Asylum film or Justin Bieber concert on home video (I can only assume such a horror exists).

Here's how it works:
Person A posts a list of 10 movies
Person B picks a movie from the A's list for A to watch. In the same post, Person B does their list of 10 movies.

You can't pick something for someone to watch without posting your own list and you always have to choose a movie for the most recent list.

Even if someone drops out, the challenge can go on and on. So if A never gets around to watching it, as long as someone else comes in, B gets a movie selected for them to watch. If A takes a year to watch their movie, they can still jump back in.

What do you do after watching your movie?
You do a new post where you pick a film from the most recent list, for them to watch. Your list of 10 movies will have the 9 from before and 1 new film to replace the one you've watched. It'd also be nice to include your thoughts about what you watched.

Can I change my list to better match an Official DVDTalk Movie Challenge?
Sure, as long as you follow a couple simple rules.

1. The change is due to matching one of the running challenges.

2. You take care of any existing watch pick a person has done for you. So if someone has chosen a movie for you, you can't just ignore it. You watch it and then update your list when you come back.

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

I included imdb links since these aren't too well known.

1. Deadly Harvest http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074380/reference - I bought this and the next film in a disaster movie set 10 years ago.

2. Hurricane http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071638/reference

3. Red to Kill http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111037/reference - Same story as above, except it's only been around 8 years.

4. Night of the Bloody Apes http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063090/reference - These next two have the same story. Getting close to a decade on my shelf.

5. Feast of Flesh http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062132/reference

6. The Ugly Ones http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060853/ - I picked 6-10 to coincide with my western challenge for the Make Your Own Challenge and I've also had these for years.

7. A Bullet for a Stranger http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067142/

8. My Name Is Trinity http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067355/

9. Tampopo http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092048/

10. The Misfits http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055184/

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

I'll play.

I'll choose Tampopo for you. IMO, it's Juzo Itami's best film and it is hilarious. It will also make you want to go to a Japanese noodle shop ASAP.

Here's my list of movies that I've always meant to get to.

1. In the Mood For Love
2. Mulholland Drive
3. Spirited Away
4. Jules and Jim
5. Memories of Murder
6. Wild Tales
7. Force Majeure
8. Trance
9. A Prophet
10. Samsara

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

Good pick with Tampopo! That would've been my choice as well.

For you, I'll stay in the same country and pick Spirited Away. It's often what people think of when they think Miyazaki, and though I've started it numerous times and finished it, I don't know if I've ever sat through the whole thing myself.

My list, in no particular order but favoring musicals for this month's MYO challenge :

Hello Dolly (1969)
Babes in Arms (1939)
Neptune's Daughter (1949)
A Night at the Opera (1935)
Cover Girl (1944)
Funny Girl (1968)
Sabrina (1954)
Ladyhawke (1985)
3 Godfathers (1948)
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

It's not bad once you get the hang of it. You can also check out the flow of the thread at the icheckmovie forums http://s15.zetaboards.com/iCheckMovies/topic/7009394/1/

Assuming you're the next person to post a list, you'd pick a movie from davidh777's list for them to watch. Then you wait until someone else posts a list and they pick something from your list.

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

Bob, you should watch 42nd Street. Barry Lyndon is a great movie, but you have to be in the right mood to watch a slow subtle satire.

Here are some of my unwatched DVDs:

City Lights (Chaplin)
Inspector General (Danny Thomas)
Hunchback of Notre Dame (Lon Chaney Sr.)
Mr Robinson Crusoe (Douglas Fairbanks)
Chungking Expresss
Unbearable Lightness of Being
Two English Girls (Truffaut)
Anything in the Harold Lloyd collection (except for The Freshman or Safety Last)

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

^Well, Peepers... you picked exactly what I had in mind for Nick had you not beat me to it!

Your next film is: My Name Is Trinity

I remember seeing ads for that one when it came out. I've never seen the film but it sounds interesting, plus it fits with your MYO theme.

42nd Street was good but not as good as I was expecting. Other than Dick Powell I thought most of the singing was amateurish and uninspired. I'd certainly not put it amongst the top of the Busby Berkeley films. One of the 3 production final numbers, "(I'm) Young and Healthy", was simply laughable. Maybe it was considered great stuff in 1933 but it suffered from incredibly poor lyrics which repeated too often. While I like the song, "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" suffered from a poor tenor (I *hate* "extreme" vibrato in a voice plus his voice didn't fit well with the song), and "42nd Street", another of my favorite songs from that era, had too many scenes which would have been impossible to present on a stage as small as depicted. OK... so it's a musical and you are supposed to forgive such goings on but there are some things I can't let slide. In spite of those issues I still enjoyed the film.

I added another unseen by me Busby Berkeley musical to replace the one viewed.

1. Moulin Rouge (1952)
2. Barry Lyndon (1975)
3. Torn Curtain (1966)
4. All the King's Men (1949)
5. Skyfall (2012)
6. OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006)
7. Avanti! (1972)
8. Ninotchka (1939)
9. Prizzi's Honor (1985)
10. Gold Diggers of 1937 (1936)

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

Bob's watching All the King's Men.

Trinity was really good. I light comedy for a spaghetti western and you might like it too. It also had the start of Billy Goes West in a somewhat similar role/situation.

1. Deadly Harvest http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074380/reference - I bought this and the next film in a disaster movie set 10 years ago.

2. Hurricane http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071638/reference

We watched 42nd Street as well. I was disappointed that I recommended it to you because it is the least extravagant Busby Berkley movie. After this one, he was given the budget for gigantic fantasy numbers which couldn't fit on any stage in the world. Those are why he's remembered today.

I watched the movie, but I thought it dragged. Twenty minutes into the movie, all they've done is introduce characters! I liked Lon Chaney, and I liked the huge sets and crowd scenes, but otherwise I wasn't impressed.

FOOTLIGHT PARADE (1933), my favorite of the Busby Berkeley musicals, not least because it stars a singing-dancing James Cagney, has musical numbers that are supposed to be staged on small stages at movie theaters--in between showings of the movie! So what do they do? "By a Waterfall," with a huge pool and a real waterfall and a whole Esther Williams-type water ballet! Can you imagine a poor kid in the audience waiting for the Tom Mix western to come on while they set that one up?

I was hoping I'd get to him first.

You're also a couple movies short on your list for 10. I know what I'd want to pick for you based off those 8 though.

I was going to pick Platoon at first but based off the name, The Man with the Golden Arm is more appealing, so let's go with that one instead.

Night of the Bloody Apes only had one ape, and even then it was just a partial gorilla face on a guy. It did have some over the top kills and ended up to be more enjoyable that I thought it'd be. It was a Mexican horror film, so naturally there had to be a couple wrestling matches thrown in.

1. Deadly Harvest http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074380/reference - I bought this and the next film in a disaster movie set 10 years ago.

2. Hurricane http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071638/reference

3. Red to Kill http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111037/reference - Same story as above, except it's only been around 8 years.

4. Big Hero 6

5. Feast of Flesh http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062132/reference

6. The Ugly Ones http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060853/ - I picked 6-10 to coincide with my western challenge for the Make Your Own Challenge and I've also had these for years.

7. A Bullet for a Stranger http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067142/

8. Ambush Valley http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0027289/

9. Alias the Bad Man http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0021597/reference

10. The Misfits http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055184/

You get to watch Ran.
You're right! Ran was an utter delight to watch. We had tornadoes, hail, and loose tigers in my part of the country, so all of my evening plans were canceled and I was able to snuggle on the couch with the cats and indulge in some Kurosawa goodness.

I'm not sure why I don't just sit down and have a Kurosawa marathon. Every time I watch one of his films, I find myself completely blown away. This film was no exception, and the fall of the Ichimonji clan captivated me. Everything about this film is brilliant! It's beautiful, well-acted, and very suspenseful. I laughed; I cried; it moved me.

I've waited for someone to jump in here since I picked your last viewing, but alas, you get stuck with me as guest programmer yet again! This time, I pick The Misfits to help you along with your challenge!

I've replaced the rightly lauded Ran with the largely forgotten Woody Allen film Celebrity. It's been on my shelf for a long time and never made it to my DVD player.
  1. Aguirre, the Wrath of God
  2. Grave of the Fireflies
  3. Celebrity
  4. Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
  5. I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang
  6. Only Angels Have Wings
  7. The Tree of Life
  8. A Fish Called Wanda
  9. The Vanishing (1988)
  10. Blue Velvet
