Sometimes these kinds of things don't translate well through the Internet. Sorry I mistook your tone for something it wasn't. Anyway, you can expect that wherever I post, I'll likely be bitching about my stupid guts or gushing over those infrequent days when they're cooperative.

I think next year, I'm going to try to track down the handful of movies that also qualify for the TV on DVD* Challenge for whatever overlap period there is. I really wanted to complete the checklist this year, and I simply didn't. Once I (eventually) finish the Oscar winner spreadsheet, that should help guide my selections with a little more concentration. I'm sure I'll forget it by next year's challenge, but I'd like to start off with a handful of those movies that each won a ton of awards so I can knock out the checklist early and then indulge whatever challenge-eligible mood I happen to be in the rest of the month.

I had made an amazon.uk order in mid Jan. with a bunch of stuff, one being the 1939 (?) Wuthering Heights, it was super late (at least according to estimates, I've never ordered from there before) and of course arrived on Feb. 28th... guess I have my first goal for next years challenge lol

You did a great job of hosting this MinLShaw! I was happy with my results as I finished the checklist without any duplicates and logged in over 90 hours of a lot of first time viewing. Now it's on to the Drive-In Challenge!

Here's the bad news: The Monkees hosted this one, and you've probably just earned a spot on his permanent naughty list.

Here's the good news: At least it wasn't caligulathegod, who is hosting the upcoming Drive-In Challenge.
