The Fifteenth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge - May 1-31, 2024 **List Thread**

The Fifteenth Annual May Make-Your-Own Challenge
May 1-31, 2024

This thread is for lists only.
For discussion, go to the May 2024 Make-Your-Own Challenge Discussion Thread.

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.


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?

MOVIES & TV SERIES BASED ON CLASSIC WORKS OF LITERATURE

MAY 1
1. The Scarlet Letter
(1995) At least they had the decency to state "Loosely based on the novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne" in the opening credits.

MAY 2
2. Far from the Madding Crowd
(2015) Romance drama based on the novel by Thomas Hardy.

MAY 3 - The novel Shogun is just shy of 50 years old, but it's considered one of the best historical novels ever written so I include it here as a "classic".
3. Shogun (2024) Episodes: Anjin / Servant of Two Masters

MAY 4
4. Shogun
(2024) Episodes: Tomorrow is Tomorrow / The Eightfold Fence

MAY 5
5. Shogun
(2024) Episodes: Broken to the Fist / Ladies of the Willow World

MAY 6
6. Shogun
(2024) Episodes: A Stick of Time / The Abyss of Life

MAY 7
