Max My Movies: March Movie Challenge!

Hi guys! Do I love setting myself challenges? The answer is YES! I've just finished my February Sample Challenge which I'll blog the results of soon, and now I'm on to a new challenge of a different kind. I've been watching a lot of Netflix shows lately, so much so that I'm neglecting my first love, movies. But that's all about to change as I force myself to watch 31 movies in 31 days. Yes, that's right, it's time for my March Movie Challenge!

The rules:
~ I must not have seen the movie before
~ I can watch them in any order
~ I can swap movies out of the challenge and put others in their place
~ they can be from any source, eg DVD, Bluray, TV, Netflix, the cinema.
~ I can skip a day here and there, but must try to watch 31 movies by March 31

OK, so here are the 31 films I've selected for the challenge, along with a few alternatives in case I feel like watching those instead...

1    Nightcrawler (Jake Gyllenhaal Rene Russo)
2    Spotlight (Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton)
3    Suicide Squad (Will Smith, Margot Robbie)
4    Zero Dark Thirty (Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton)
5    The Ides Of March (Ryan Gosling, George Clooney)
6    David Brent: Life On The Road (Ricky Gervais, Ben Bailey Smith)
7    The Rover (Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson)
8    Bridget Jones's Baby (Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth)
9    Scoop (Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson)
10  Beautiful Creatures (Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert)
11  Snowpiercer (Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton)
12  Rough Night (Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon)
13  Miss You Already (Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette)  
14  J.Edgar (Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer)
15  Dallas Buyers Club (Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner)
16  Revolutionary Road (Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet)
17  Blue Jasmine (Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins)
18  Personal Shopper (Kristen Stewart, Nora Waldst√§tten)
19  The Revenant (Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy)
20  Good Time (Robert Pattinson, Jennifer Jason Leigh)
21  Kill Bill: Volume 1 (Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu)
22  Kill Bill: Volume 2 (Uma Thurman, Daryl Hannah)
23  Zoolander 2 (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson)
24  What We Do In The Shadows (Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi)
25  The Intern (Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway)
26  Gravity (Sandra Bullock, George Clooney)
27  Trancendence (Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall)
28  Money Monster (George Clooney, Julia Roberts)
29  Eat Pray Love (Julia Roberts, James Franco)
30  Public Enemies (Johnny Depp, Christian Bale)
31  Mud (Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon)

Alternative Titles
1  John Wick (Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist)
2  John Wick : Chapter 2 (Keanu Reeves, Common)
3  Walk The Line (Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon)
4  I'm Not There (Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett)  
5  The Babadook (Essie Davis, Noah Wiseman)

After organising this challenge I've realised a few Netflix-related minor problems; new episodes of Dynasty and Riverdale are being released in March, as well as the much anticipated (by me!) release of Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet and the third and final season of Love on Netflix, all of which I probably won't have time to watch given this epic challenge. Aargh!

Do you set yourself ridiculous challenges like this? What's your favourite film?

  2. Good luck with your challenge! I would not be able to do it because TV shows that I like to watch or Netflix would interfere.Either that or I'd run out of time and fall asleep! ;-) #TeamLovinLife

    1. That's what I realized too after putting together this challenge. So many things I want to watch on Netflix during March! #sendhelp

  3. Good luck, Di. It's quite the challenge, but I'm sure you'll be able to do it and hopefully enjoy the movies xx

  5. Oh my gosh this is dedication! There's quite a few on this list I haven't seen yet, I might set myself a 3 month challenge to watch them.

  6. 31 movies in a month is so many! I’ll be interested to hear which were your favourites to get recommendations of what to watch as there is no way in the world I’d get to watch this many!


  7. Oh wow that's a lot of movies! Good luck! Some of them look like really good ones to watch too :) I tend to watch tv shows on netflix as they are shorter and it's easier to fit it into the day :) Once the boys are older I might be able to watch more of the movie selection, haha!

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :) The latest post on my blog is another #30wears one, showing 30 ways to wear a maxi skirt if you want to check it out.

  10. Wow that is quite a challenge! Good luck with that!

  11. Girl you love your challenges! Definitely one I could get behind!

    1. Haha yep I do Ebony! To my own detriment sometimes lol. x

  12. Wow that is quite the challenge! I'm not someone who can set challenges like that - I failed at doing a Project Polish, so I know I'm not cut out for it! Out of your list, I've only seen 2 of the movies you've chosen (Bridget Jones' Baby + Dallas Buyers Club). I don't tend to watch a lot of films, so stuff can easily pass me by.

    1. Sometimes I think I'm too ambitious with these challenges, Shell! I'm looking forward to seeing the 2 movies you've seen. I'm a little bit behind already!

  13. Ooo this sounds like such a fun challenge! I've seen a lot of these films as well so you're in for a good month :)
