Re: The 14th Annual DVDTalk Holiday Challenge (11/17 - 1/1)

My list is complete. I was on vacation in Seattle from Dec 24th-Jan 3 so I really didn't watch anything after Dec 22nd. Got to 62 and my goal was 60, so that's fine. :-)
I enjoyed the challenge....

Looks like Hulu's "Into the Dark series will have both a Christmas and New Year's story that'll count for the challenge. Whoot! The Christmas one is out now.

POOKA!...

Re: The 14th Annual DVDTalk Holiday Challenge (11/17 - 1/1)

Yeah, true. There are some Netflix and Lifetime knock-offs that are good.

I checked and Hallmark Hall of Fame has been on TV since the 50's. But I'm not sure how many Christmas movies were made...

Re: The 14th Annual DVDTalk Holiday Challenge (11/17 - 1/1)

I've been watching tons of Hallmark and I made my own Hallmark movie checklist. Thought I'd share it in case anyone else is interested. Feel free to add on! It looks like a lot, but honestly, most of...

Thanks. I'm always looking for new organizing/list ideas.

Re: Comments, Suggestions & Feedback for the 2019 Horror Challenge

Some of my favorites from this challenge:

Antichrist (2009) - Gorgeous cinematography and is a total head trip. Very sexy too.

Re: The 14th Annual DVDTalk Holiday Challenge (11/17 - 1/1)

Me too. I love to binge on Hallmark holiday movies. And they certainly put out enough of them each year to keep it fresh.

Looking forward to this challenge!

Finished at 133 with DAVE MADE A MAZE. Perfect way to end the challenge--I loved it. I got in 5 films today and ended with DMAM at 10pm. I'm calling it done!

Had a great time. Will write more...
