I donít need it. But I wanted to applaud what you are doing. I already have all 6 movies. Should give them a rewatch soon. Perhaps a night that I donít feel like animation.

Ditto! That was nice of you to throw out there, SterlingBen!

Also, shadokitty, the Hobbit movies have a ton of CGI, so they'd count for the animation challenge, especially the CGI mark for the checklist. Especially the Smaug ones.

You can find the list here.
Site is free, you don't even have to sign in to play the quizzes but your stats don't save unless you create a log in.
My kids and I used to do Sporcle quizzes (“Name every song on Taylor Swift’s Red!”) and I was recently wondering if it still existed. Glad it does.

You can count it in October!

It does! I probably play a quiz or two every day. I've recommended it for students trying to learn geography, but I enjoy their entertainment quizzes, both movie and tv, especially.

Thanks for this ... I'm a lot better at these than I am the framed screenshot games (where even when it's a movie I know well, it usually takes me until the last couple of images where they actually show the stars).

My list is done, small and minimal as it is. As I posted before, this just wasn't the month for me to watch lots of movies and tv. Starting in late June, I spent about a month traveling with the first 3 weeks in Europe where I didn't watch a thing. Thankfully I left just before the 100+ degree heat wave which sounds like it was awful (especially since most rooms don't have air conditioning or window screens to keep bugs out).

Re: The 15th Annual Sci-fi/Fantasy Challenge Discussion Thread

Just wanted to wrap up the 2022 Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy thread!

This year we had (including myself) 30 participants, one less than last year. However, in 2022, we had 2,015 total watches compared to 1,787 last year! That means we all averaged 65 watches/person (57.6 last year). Not too shabby!

We had 9 people start the checklist, one less than last year but 5 people completed it compared to only 4 in 2021. This year we also had 2 people come very close to finishing as well. Both last year and this year we had one person black the checklist out! tarfrimmer completed it fully both years!

Also, because of all the Star Trek talk this year, I went through and counted who watched the series and there were 14 of us who watched at least one episode or movie of Trek this year. That was almost half of us!

Congratulations to all the participants to a very good year!
