The Eighth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2017 **List Thread**

The Eighth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge
May 1-31, 2017

This thread is for lists only.
For discussion, go to the May 2017 Make-Your-Own Challenge Discussion Thread.

May is just over a week and a half away, so it's time, once again, to take a look at your dusty, unopened box sets, your unwatched stacks of Blu-rays, DVDs, HD-DVDs, LDs, VHS or Beta tapes, your DVR, your Netflix queue, etc., etc., and decide what you think you should spend 31 days watching. Now's your chance to finally watch all the stuff that didn't fit, or that you just didn't get around to, during the other Challenges.

Since you choose your own Challenge theme, you make the rules.

There are however a few guidelines which everyone should follow.

Challenge Guidelines:

The Challenge runs from May 1 through May 31.

Sure, you can do your May MYOC in September if you want, but the list thread will only be stickied during May, so if you want anyone else to see what you're up to, please try to do it near those dates.

Please state your challenge theme and your challenge goal and rules (if any) at the top of your list(s) in the list thread so others can tell what you're doing.

Please don't duplicate an existing "Official" DVD Talk Challenge.

This guideline is mainly here so we don't subtract from participation in any of the other Challenges, and to encourage participants to focus on genres not already covered by a Challenge, but since everyone's "need to watch" list is different, and you're able to watch stuff that qualifies for one or more of the other Challenges during every other Challenge, you're free to narrow the focus of one of the broader "Official" Challenges.

For example; Say you only collect horror, then you could make your Challenge to watch just horror films, or just horror TV shows, or just zombie films, etc. Or if you have lots of unwatched Sci-Fi, then your MYOC could be just watch Sci-Fi movies, or watch Star Trek shows, or watch TOS, etc.

Here's Trevor's handy-dandy list of Challenges from his "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium thread:

DVDTalk Challenge Schedule

Month-long Challenge
Partial Month Challenge
JanuaryTVHoliday ends on the 1st; varying Academy Award
Februarynonevarying Academy Award
MarchAction/Adventure/Crimevarying Academy Award
JuneHistorical Appreciationnone
NovemberComedyHoliday starts week of Thanksgiving

Since we already have Monthly "Unwatched Media Pile" Threads, please do not use that as a theme.

During past MYOCs, people weren't happy with this being used as a theme, and I tend to agree that it is a little lazy. So how about giving a little thought to the theme and coming up with something a little more creative, please?

"I took a fish head,
out to see a movie...
I didn't have to pay
to get it in"

Remembering Bill Paxton (1955 - 2017)
Thank for 40 years of great entertainment!
From Fish Heads (1977) to The Circle (2017)

Re: The Eighth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2017 **List Thread**

Eighth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge
Mr. Cellophane's "Forget the United States' Problems" Foreign Film Challenge

*= first time viewing
blue= personal BluRay
black= personal DVD
green= streaming
orange= theatrical presentation
purple= borrowed or rented BD/DVD

May 1st
1. Kiki's Delivery Service (Majo no takkyŻbin) (Hayao Miyazaki, 1989 / Japan)
--- Instead of contemplating how a genocidal slaveholder could have averted the Civil War, I watched a cute Studio Ghibli film about a young witch coming-of-age and learning her trade.
2. Sunrise/Sunset (Rassvet/Zakat. Dalai Lama 14) (Vitaliy Manskiy, 2008 / Russia)*
--- Instead of pondering how praying for the oil industry and cutting corporate taxes will help Oklahoma's alarming budget deficit, I watched a Russian documentary that follows the daily routine of the Dalai Lama.

May 2nd
3. Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot) (Jacques Tati, 1953 / France)
--- Sure, I could have continue to contemplate the ramifications of giving a jingoistic paranoid an even bigger military budget, but I decided to bury my head in one of my favorite comedies, Jacques Tati's lackadaisical meditation on everyday delights and nuisances.

May 3rd
4. The Masseur (Masahista) (Brillante Mendoza, 2005 / Philippines)*
--- FBI Director Comey spoke to a Congressional committee, but instead of reading the transcript to see what insights I could glean, I watched a coming-of-age film about a young man who gets sucked into the world of sex work.

May 4th
5. Cezanne et moi (Daniele Thompson, 2016 / France)*
--- Yes, an Ayn Rand-loving frat boy and a bunch of rich people are closer to destroying healthcare, but instead of thinking about that, I watched an examination of the tumultuous friendship between Cezanne and Emile Zola.
6. By the Time It Gets Dark (Dao khanong) (Anocha Suwichakornpong, 2016 / Thailand)*
--- Instead of delving further into understanding the hellscape that is North Carolina's legislative coup, I was confused by an Thai experimental film about history and the nature of fiction.

May 6th
7. Seeds of Yesterday (Shawn Ku, 2015 / Canada)*
--- While I was tempted to read Ivanka's new book to see if it offered insight into her very normal family, I decided to watch an adaptation of a V.C. Andrews' novel all about an incestuous family threatened by a potent mixture of religion and insanity.

May 7th
8. Les Vampires: Episode 2 - "The Ring That Kills" (1915 / France / DVD)*
9. Les Vampires: Episode 3 - "The Red Codebook" (1915 / France / DVD)*

May 9th
10. Osama (Siddiq Barmak, 2003 / Afghanistan)*
--- I cannot bring myself to say anything jokey about watching this one. It's a terrifying exploration of life under the repressive Taliban, especially how terribly women are treated.

May 10th
11. Les Vampires: Episode 4 - "The Spectre" (1916 / France / DVD)*

May 11th
12. Doctor Who: 1.1, "Rose" (2005 / United Kingdom / AmazonPrime)
13. Doctor Who: 1.2, "The End of the World" (2005 / United Kingdom / AmazonPrime)

May 12th
14. Doctor Who: 1.3, "The Unquiet Dead" (2005 / United Kingdom / AmazonPrime)
15. Summer Interlude (Sommarlek) (Ingmar Bergman, 1951 / Sweden)*
--- Russians, you say? Possible obstruction of justice? Sean Spicer in the bushes? I dismissed all that and enjoyed this devastating drama about a ballerina who relives the past when she receives a former lover's diary.

May 14th
16. Les Vampires: Episode 5 - "Dead Man's Escape" (1916 / France / DVD)*
17. Les Vampires: Episode 6 - "Hypnotic Eyes" (1916 / France / DVD)*

May 15th
18. Les Vampires: Episode 7 - "Satanas" (1916 / France / DVD)*

May 17th
18. Les Vampires: Episode 8 - "The Thunder Master" (1916 / France / DVD)*

May 25th

"The forgotten movies will be forgotten no longer"

To watch "the forgotten movies" from the 1980's. Films that haven't gotten any attention in the past 20+ years. Movies that were well-known in the 80's, but probably haven't been seen by anyone born after 1990.


48 Hrs. (1982) [B+]
A hard-nosed cop and a wisecracking convict team up to catch a cop killer. Eddie Murphy's film debut. It started the "buddy cop" genre and was a big inspiration for other 80's movies like Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon.
Starring: Nick Nolte, Eddie Murphy, Annette O'Toole

Above the Law (1988) [C]
A former Special Ops vet, now a Chicago cop, investigates a drug ring that's being covered up by the CIA. Back in the 80's, everyone was blown away by Seagal's unique violent fighting style.
Starring: Steven Seagal, Pam Grier, Sharon Stone, Henry Silva

Bloodsport (1988) [C-]
A US soldier travels to Hong Kong to compete in a violent underground martial arts tournament. WTF is up with all the cat meowing during the fight scenes?
Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme and the guy that played Ogre in Revenge of the Nerds

Invasion U.S.A. (1985) [D+]
Chuck Norris is a one man wrecking crew against a Soviet terrorist and his army of Communist guerrillas who are attacking southern Florida.
Starring: Chuck Norris, Richard Lynch, Billy Drago

Running Scared (1986) [B+]
A funny buddy-cop movie. After almost being killed on the job, two Chicago detectives decide to retire to Key West. But first, they have to put away a dangerous drug dealer.
Starring: Billy Crystal, Gregory Hines

Shanghai Surprise (1986) [D]
In 1930's China, a sleazy con man tries to help a beautiful missionary find pain-killing opium, which gets them in trouble with gangsters and smugglers. The action is boring, the jokes fall flat, and the acting is awful.
Starring: Madonna, Sean Penn

Tango & Cash (1989) [C]
Two narcotics cops are framed for murder, escape from prison, and get revenge on the drug lord that set them up. This was the last film to be released in the 1980's.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell, Jack Palance, Teri Hatcher

Tank (1984) [C]
James Garner wreaks havoc on a small town run by a corrupt sheriff using his vintage Sherman tank.
Starring: James Garner, Shirley Jones, C. Thomas Howell, James Cromwell

Victory (1981) [B+]
During WWII, Allied POWs train for an exhibition soccer game against German soldiers, where they plan to escape with help from the French resistance.
Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine, Max von Sydow. Pele


9 to 5 (1980) [B]
Three overworked and underappreciated secretaries get revenge on their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss.
Starring: Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman

Baby Boom (1987) [B]
An overworked NY businesswoman inherits a young infant who turns her life upside down. When everything falls apart, they move to a home in the country where she turns her homemade babyfood into a booming business.
Starring: Diane Keaton, Harold Ramis, Sam Shepard, Pat Hingle, James Spader, Victoria Jackson

Bustin' Loose (1981) [C]
An foul-mouthed ex-con is forced by his parole officer to drive a busload of troubled orphans across the country. In 1987, it was turned into a short-lived TV show with Jimmy Walker.
Starring: Richard Pryor, Cicely Tyson

From the Hip (1987) [B+]
A young lawyer gains noteriety for his outrageous courtroom antics. But gets in over his head when he's assigned an unwinnable murder case. This film script gave David E Kelley his big break in Hollywood.
Starring: Judd Nelson, Elizabeth Perkins, John Hurt, Ray Walston, Darren McGavin, David Alan Grier

Six Pack (1982) [B]
A race car driver becomes a reluctant guardian to six wisecracking orphans on the run from a corrupt redneck sheriff. Using their skills to quickly strip cars, the kids become his pit crew.
Starring: Kenny Rogers, Diane Lane, Erin Gray, Anthony Michael Hall, Barry Corbin

Stakeout (1987) [B-]
While on a stakeout to catch an escaped convict, two buddy-cops play pranks on their co-workers and one falls in love with the woman they're watching.
Starring: Richard Dreyfuss, Emilio Estevez, Madeleine Stowe, Aidan Quinn, Forest Whitaker

Stroker Ace (1983) [B-]
A popular, womanizing NASCAR driver tries seduce a voluptuous Sunday school teacher and get out of his ridiculous contract with a fried chicken mogul. A funny movie, despite being nominated for multiple Razzie awards.

Switching Channels (1988) [B]
An overworked cable news reporter gets engaged to a handsome millionaire and plans to retire. Her boss/ex-husband does everything he can to get her to stay. A hilarious modern-day remake of The Front Page and His Girl Friday.
Starring: Kathleen Turner, Burt Reynolds, Christopher Reeve, Ned Beatty

Three Fugitives (1989) [C+]
Just out of prison, a former bank robber gets tangled up with a desperate father and his mute daughter on the run from the cops following a bungled heist.
Starring: Nick Notle, Martin Short, James Earl Jones, Alan Ruck, Bruce McGill


Lean On Me (1989) [B+]
Based on a true story, a strict principal cleans up New Jersey's worst public high school by kicking out all the drug dealers and delinquents.
Starring: Morgan Freeman, Beverly Todd, Robert Guillaume

The Manhattan Project (1986) [C+]
A young genius steals plutonium from the local nuclear weapon laboratory, and builds a dirty bomb for his high school science fair. I enjoyed this movie when I was a teen, but now it seems completely ridiculous.
Starring: Christopher Collet, John Lithgow, Cynthia Nixon, Jill Eikenberry, John Mahoney, Robert Sean Leonard

A long-lost father visits his grown daughter, announces that he's dying and offers her a suitcase full of cash to improve her life.

Starring: Don Ameche, Joe Mantegna, Robert Prosky, Ricky Jay, William H. Macy


Deadtime Stories (1986) [D+]
A anthology of three fairy tales given a horror twist. Stories include Peter & the Witches, Red Riding Hood & a Werwolf, and homicidal Goldi Lox & the criminal Baer family. Not too scary with some stupid slapstick comedy. But has some cool 80's practical effects.
Starring: Scott Valentine, Melissa Leo


Legal Eagles (1986) [B]
When the beautiful daughter of a famous artist is charged with stealing a painting, the charismatic prosecutor and sympathetic defense attorney team up to find the truth. A light rom/com mystery with a great cast.
Starring: Robert Redford, Debra Winger, Daryl Hannah, Brian Dennehy, Terence Stamp, Christine Baranski

Miss Marple: A Caribbean Mystery (1989) [B-]
While on vacation in Barbados, Miss Marple suspects that a military man's natural death was actually murder, and the killer may be planning more.
Starring: Joan Hickson, Donald Pleasence, Sophie Ward


Chances Are (1989) [C+]
A newlywed husband is in a deadly accident and gets reincarnated as a baby. 20 years later, the young man meets his former wife and their daughter. And memories of his previous life resurface. A mildly humorous rom/com saved by a charming cast.
Starring: Cybill Shepherd, Robert Downey Jr, Ryan O'Neal, Mary Stuart Masterson, Christopher McDonald

Starring: Barret Oliver, Mary Beth Hurt, Michael McKean, Kathryn Walker, Colleen Camp

Heavy Metal (1981) [C]

Starring: James Spader, Kim Richards, Robert Downey Jr

Audio Commentary Challenge

1TL=First Time Listen

(1TL)1. Creepshow (1982) Commentary by George Romero, Tom Savini & Michael Felsher
-This might have been the liveliest I've ever heard Romero be in a commentary. I never knew about the special ash tray seen in the movie (And boy, do the commentators let you know about it)
(1TL)2. Crash (1996) Commentary by David Cronenberg
-Cronenberg does a fine job of mixing the technicalities, source material and controversy all into one good package. My favorite bit of trivia was hearing how the film crew got a police escort for filming the on-road sex scene.
(1TL)3. Dog Day Afternoon (1975) Commentary by Sydney Lumet
-The first of a trio of Lumet commentaries I plan on listening to. For claiming he hasn't seen the movie since he made it, his memory remained super sharp. It was interesting to hear about the difference between California Extras between New York Extras. Along with all the moments that were mostly improvised by Pacino.
(1TL)4. Each Dawn I Die (1939) Commentary by Haden Guest
-Aside from some segments where both re-writes And demands from the Breen office (aka the censorship board) there wasn't a lot of behind-the-scenes stories to share. Just mostly deep analyzation.
(1TL)5. Jennifer's Body (2009) Commentary by Karyn Kusama and Diablo Cody
-I don't know why, but I was expecting Diablo to do most of the talking here (Turned out to be the other way around) I haven't seen the movie in a real long time, but this track made me appreciate the film a wee bit more.
(1TL)6. She Devils on Wheels (1968) Commentary by Herschell Gordon Lewis, Mike Vraney and "Jim"
-Muffled audio in the early going, but that's soon corrected. It's too bad we didn't get to hear more info about "The Man-Eaters". That's my main complaint about this commentary. Other than that, I chuckled loudly about Herschell's recollection of trying to finally find the solution to get his infamous blood off of clothing.
(1TL)7. Frailty (2001) Commentary by Brent Hanley
-This may be the first Writer's commentary I've heard where the Writer appears to have been on set every single day. It's a loose and relaxed track with Hanley sharing tons of info on earlier versions on the stories. It's too bad he hasn't written more things because more commentaries with him would be fun.
(1TL)8. Gunga-Din (1939) Commentary by Rudy Behlmer
-Not much to say other than Behlmer gives hefty information on the careers (And often private lives) of much of the cast and crew. I'm at least glad he brought up the comparisons between this and TEMPLE OF DOOM.
(1TL)9. Risky Business (1983) Commentary by Tom Cruise, Paul Brickman and Jon Avent
-It's a video commentary as well. Starts out as quite a fun conversation between the trio, but the track seems to get too serious when the themes of the film become the main focus.
(1TL)10. Tusk (2014) Commentary by Kevin Smith
-(Watched in honor of Michael Parks' passing) A bulk of Smith's commentary is spent on the idea of how this movie got made. At least there's some good moments he shares where the actors (Long & Parks) indicated how they wanted to play specific scenes...And Kevin's potty-mouth is ever apparent whenever he introduces his family members onscreen.
(1TL)11. Vertigo (1958) Commentary by Herbert Coleman, Robert A. Harris and James C. Katz
-(There were lots of others who popped up occasionally with other stories, but I'm only focusing on the trio's comments) Since Harris & Katz worked on the film's restoration, you would think the track would only would mostly cover that, but Coleman (Who was heavily-involved with the making of the film) gives a nice balance to the commentary.
(1TL)12. Iron Man 3 (2013) Commentary by Shane Black & Drew Pearce
-I thought Black would be the humorous one. But once again, it's the writer who seems the most witty. Too bad we didn't get to hear more of why Shane Black loves to set his films at Christmas.
(1TL)13. Black Legion (1937) Commentary by Patricia King Hanson and Anthony Slide
-Most of the commentary is spent on discussing the actors (Very little on the filmmakers) and the commentators don't shy away from poking fun at the movie here and there.
(1TL)14. CBGB (2013) Commentary by Randall Miller, Jody Savin and Brad Rosenberger
-It's not much of a team-commentary (Miller does the most talking) but this still managed to be my favorite commentary thus far in this challenge. Though one can get tired of hearing of which scenes were filmed in New York and which scenes were filmed in Georgia, I loved how nearly every single scene in the movie had it's own bit of trivia. Never noticed that (The character of) Annie Golden appeared in this movie, btw.
(1TL)15. Apocalypse Now (1979) Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola-For being one of the most troubled film productions ever, I was surprised how minimal of it is said from Coppola. From his comments, you get the sense that deciding the film's ending was the biggest problem during filming...That is, until Brando arrived on set....
(1TL)16. Relax....It's Just Sex (1997) Commentary by Steve Wolf, Jennifer Tilly and Lori Petty-Some funny remarks scattered throughout, but this track might leave you very drained--Thanks to Tilly's motormouth.
(1TL)17. Pieces (1982) Commentary by Jack Taylor and Collum Wadell-Very little scene-specific comments here. But if you're a big Euro-cult fan, you might get a little joy when Taylor recalls working with Jess Franco, Amando de Ossorio, Leon Klomivsky and Paul Naschy.
(1TL)18. 'G' Men (1935) Commentary by Richard Jewell-Since the FBI is in the news, why not do this one? I've listened to two other commentaries by Jewell and he still sounds like a nervous teenager, but at least he appeared more enthusiastic here. It was interesting to hear the differences between the REAL events that inspired scenes for this movie and their "Hollywood" results.
(1TL)19. Lifeforce (1985) Commentary by Tobe Hooper and Tim Sullivan-Sullivan fanboys hard over this movie and never once does it get annoying. Very fun and lively conversation between the two. Contains the best "Final thoughts" I've yet to hear in my commentary-thon.
(1TL)20. Sinister (2012) Commentary by Scott Derrickson-I didn't get to fully listen to this track (Million other things going on) what I did notice was that Derrickson hardly ever took a breath and that he unexpectedly gave mention to the 70's horror flick, Devil Times Five. I really should try to give this another listen.
(1TL)21. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid (1969) Commentary by George Roy Hill, Hal David, Robert Crawford and Conrad Hill-I could've swore I only heard three guys in this, but oh well. Mostly dull track that focuses a lot on the photography. I wanted to hear more about the actual characters.
(1TL)22. The Rules of Attraction (2002) Commentary by Carrot Top-Wow I've heard a lot about this commentary over the years and it did not disappoint one bit. I lost track of how many spit takes I did. Undoubtedly, one of the most funniest things I've ever listened to.
(1TL)23. The Running Man (1987) Commentary by Paul Michael Glaser and Jeff McKay-And from the best commentary I've heard in this challenge, to the worst (Or more like most disappointing) To begin with, I never knew that "Starsky" directed this movie. And as it turns out, the commentary lets the viewer know about ALL the other films that he's directed and ALL the other projects he's acted in. Though it was nice to hear about the lengthy career he's had, this was the wrong place to talk about it.
(1TL)24. La La Land (2016) Commentary by Damien Chazelle and Justin Hurwitz-Since it sounds like Hurwitz (The music composer) was in every step of the way during the filming with Director Chazelle, this ended up being a smooth commentary. My favorite moment was when Hurwitz described making a faux background song that sounded like it was made by The Cure.
(1TL)25. Repo Man (1984) Commentary by Alex Cox and a crap load of other people-Though I was only able to identify about 3 of the 6 voices heard in this commentary, it still ended up being a fun track. It was amusing to hear about the mishaps that occur near the end of the movie.
(1TL)26. Phantasm (1979) Commentary by Director Don Coscarelli and actors A. Michael Baldwin, Angus Scrimm and Bill Thornbury-Coscarelli does a good job with the scene specifics. The only problem was that the audio tends to be low...All except for Angus Scrimm--Who's booming voice reflects The Tall Man well.
(1TL)27. After Hours (1985) Commentary by Martin Scorsese, Griffin Dunne, Amy Robinson, Thelma Schoonmaker, and Michael Ballhaus-Since it's a selected-scene commentary, this makes the movie much more shorter. To my surprise, I was most pleased by Ballhaus's comments. Rather than just talking about "How I did this scene", he goes on to talk about the transitions of working with Fassbinder and Scorsese. I didn't mind hearing that at all.
(1TL)28. Ladies and Gentleman, The Fabulous Stains (1981) Commentary by Diane Lane and Laura Dern-It's a fun track with the gals basically treating this film as home movies.
(1TL)29. 31 (2016) Commentary by Rob Zombie-Say what you will about Zombie's films, but he always does a fine commentary.
(1TL)30. Heat (1995) Commentary by Michael Mann-Mann gives very little info as as the technical side of things go, but instead, it was refreshing to hear him go into the backstories of the characters and their psychology.
(1TL)31. Before The Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) Commentary by Sydney Lumet, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke-Though it tends to be a tough listen since Lumet and Hoffman are gone, this is worth listening to if you want to know about an actor's craft.
(1TL)32. One Crazy Summer (1987) Commentary by Savage Steve Holland, Bobcat Goldthwait and Curtis Armstrong-As a longtime fan of the movie, it was cool to hear about all the deleted scenes. It's no surprise that Bobcat's comments provide most of the laughs, but things really got funny to hear during the boat race.
(1TL)33. The Legend (of Fong Sai Yuk) (1993) Commentary by Bey Logan-As usual, it's your usual martial arts Logan commentary with background information of the actors and filmmakers delivered with rapid fire speed. Yet another impressive track from the master.
(1TL)34. Summer of Sam (1999) Commentary by Spike Lee and John Leguizamo-There's a youtube video out there that has nothing but F-bombs said in the movie. Someone now needs to do one that features nothing but Lee's obnoxious cackling from this track.
