The 1st Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime Challenge - March 1st - 31st, 2012

1st Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Challenge




Dates: Dusk on February 28th to dawn on April 1st (What you watch from midnight on March 30th to dawn on April 1st could also count for the annual April B-Movie/Exploitation Challenge, so plan your choices accordingly if desired.) (What you watch from dusk on February 28th to dawn on March 1st can also count in the Quadrennial Leap Day Time Travel Challenge, so plan your choices accordingly if desired.)

Rules: Sorta like all the other Challenges but as lenient as you can imagine. Everything counts as one; film, TV episode, short. Unofficial goal of hitting 100, but don't ignore real life to hit it. Everyone who shows up in either thread is an equal "winner". Anything listed on IMDB with a genre of action, adventure, crime, or mystery (or anything that even vaguely could be argued as should be listed as such) counts.


Checklist is officified, see post #83.

Prizes: We have at least three prizes here, thanks to our consistently generous Challenge sponsor, Hamilton Books. Two prizes go to the most creative lists, as chosen by votes; and one prize goes to a random participant.


This is the discussion thread. Discuss.

Pretty much all of the past discussion about an Action/Adventure Challenge from the Challenge Compendium thread is spoilered below for OCD posterity.

Anyway, I just wanted to echo the thoughts of those who have suggested comedy and crime challenges. The latter in particular would cover a lot of stuff that doesn't really seem to be covered by most of the current challenges. Just wanted to throw that out there. Cheers!

I think we're getting close to Challenge overload, but would like to somehow see the missing genres covered. Maybe crime could be lumped with action/adventure. Also think maybe Comedy would be a good complement for the partial month November Holiday Challenge. I'm not going to push either though.

I think Action films lend themselves very well to marathon viewing. Am personally looking forward to doing a all-the-Bond-films marathon and a Noir boxset perhaps.

I'll have the 100 count goal, but shorts and TV shows are worth the same as a 4 hour epic film.

Lots of potential for checklist items I think.

While I doubt we'll ever have two Challenges covering the same entire month, no Challenge has "control" of a month, let alone two or three months.

The Holiday Challenge, my favorite, covers parts of three months, but we already have other Challenges to share it's November and January incursions.

The Academy Awards Challenge, my favorite, is always going to have random dates, even covering part of January once iirc.

While I'd love to have separations between every Challenge, there are going to be at least 12 of them, and with Academy spanning two months, we're going to have to share.

I see that this coming year it ends in February again, so we'll do Action/Adventure in March. February will be "open" for a potential different genre.

I planned to start the Action/Adventure/(Crime?/Noir?/Mystery?) thread next week, but feel free to chime in your thoughts on it here, especially on the title.

Action/Adventure would leave out a lot of police/crime/noir/mystery films that don't traffic in action. For instance, most of Bogart's films would fit into a Crime/noir challenge, but not an action/adventure challenge. A crime/noir challenge on the other hand would allow for a good quotient of DIE HARD/LETHAL WEAPON-type action films, because of the police angle, and many Seagal/Van Damme films, while keeping out RAMBO/EXPENDABLES-type films and supernatural blockbusters like LORD OF THE RINGS et al.

Whaddaya think?
Originally Posted by davidh777

I like the angle of Action/Adventure/Crime. Noir would have a lot of overlap with crime, and mystery seems a little too wide.

And thanks for mentioning the Pink Panther films. I've been meaning to break out my big pink boxset for years, thought I'd do it for the Comedy Challenge but was too busy, so thanks for reminding me that they'd fit next month too.

So about the Action/Adventure/Crime Challenge, time for me to throw together a sad thread opening.

Any checklist ideas?

Some great ideas on the checklist people! I'm leaning towards making it a fairly small checklist as Challenges go. While I want it to be a bit difficult to complete, and make people broaden their horizons; my overall feeling is that this Challenge should be somewhat light and fluffy.

I'd rather have it be a Crime Challenge since I'm working my way through a noir list when I'm not doing challenges but I get the feeling more people would rather have Action/Adventure.

Speaking of which, how is the thread coming?

Also, how about documentaries about crime figures, e.g. Depression-era bandits (Dillinger), old west outlaws (Jesse James) and lawmen (Wyatt Earp), gangsta' rappers, etc.?

But it will be quite sad looking. Something like this perhaps:

1st Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime Challenge

Wow. Great recap. You went a lot further back with that previous discussion than I would've.

Since I have more Bond commentaries left to listen to than I can possibly get to in a month, I'll ask - Will commentaries count? Either way, I'll still have plenty to listen to for the 3rd Annual May Make Your Own Challenge (coming soon).

Yes, commentaries will count. In fact, in keeping with my 'easy theme', feel free to count any special feature. Disc has the film, two commentaries, trailer, teaser, 2 minute fluff making-of featurette, and a cartoon? Watch them all and your count is 7.

Of course, you're welcome to count only films, or to use the numbering formula of any other Challenge.

Don't worry if your month of 100 hours of epic length adventure films nets you a count of 40, but someone else watches 50 hours of Popeye cartoons and has a count of 250. It's not about the numbers.

Nice to see the challenge starts at dusk. It means I can actually start on the 29th, as I have to go to bed early on the 29th due to a Dentist appt on the first.

I've been jonesing to watch the Dirty Harry films for years. Haven't seen them since their original releases in the theaters and maybe on VHS iirc. All my DVDs are boxed in storage, so this is the year of the Blu-ray for me. Have 600 or so of them, a large percentage of them qualifying for next month I'm sure.

Being a little drained from watching oscar caliber movies, I am ready to start watching a little action/adventure already, so I am breaking into my MASK collection tonight and watching disc 1.

If any entertainment format was built for action/adventure, it was the cliffhanger, so I'm guessing that serials from the '30s and '40s are eligible, e.g. Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, The Green Hornet, Batman, Superman, Captain Marvel, etc., right?

Also live-action giant robot/superhero shows from Japan, e.g. Ultraman, Kamen Rider, Super Robot Red Baron, and the various Power Rangers franchises, right?

Good deal. Thinking I'm gonna do this one, but may only make it 10 new titles for me. Will be cool to check out some popular action/adventure/crime flicks I've never seen. Heck, maybe I'll wrap up the LOTR trilogy.

I know when I looked on IMDB, Ultraman and Super Robot Red Baron were listed as eligible. Also certain animes are also eligible.

I could be wrong, but I think this may be the Challenge with the most eligible titles. Looking through my BD shelves I swear that 90% of them fit.

I know when I was looking through my DVD collection and checking on IMDB and allmovie, I have over 105 titles between movies, and tv series that qualify for this challenge.

I can't resist this. Looks like it's time to revisit my 42nd Street Forever discs; I think I might have one or two I haven't watched yet, too. If I'm judging correctly, I'll be able to count the discs and every trailer that fits the genre specs. Heh.

I'm sure that's the case for my BD collection, since both my tastes and the format skew that direction. TV probably has more entries when you break it down by episode, though (of course, a lot of my TV qualifies for this too so maybe not!).

Multiply that by 10 or 20 and that would come closer to my total. The problem is not finding stuff to watch for these challenges, but prioritizing what to watch.

(And that's just what's visible on my shelves. I have hundreds more eligible titles packed up and put in closets.)

Agreed. I was browsing my unwatched Netflix queue last night and there were tons of title that fit into this. Really difficult for me to narrow it down.
