The Usual Fine Print:
50 movies is the goal, but based on your own time and situation you can shoot for more or less, so we have different levels from Coal to Platinum:

50 Movies - Gold
40 Movies - Silver
30 Movies - Bronze
20 Movies - Copper
10 Movies - Coal
<10 Movies - Why are you on this site?
If you're going to re-post your entire list every time, please hide it under spoiler tags.
If you're going to post pictures for the films (poster art or Blu-ray covers, for example) please try not to use GIANT pictures, and if there are tons of them, again - please hide under spoilers.

Default Scavenger Hunt/Dollar Tree Selections

A feature length film shorter than 80 minutes:

Last Christmas (2016) (1 hour 17 minutes)

A bit of a downer. A British film from the BBC.

Everything's Gone Green (2006)

I thought this would be just a simple stoner/slacker comedy/drama, but it wasn't. Disappointing.

Stealing Christmas (2003) 1/2

I don't usually go for the made for TV holiday films, but this was decent.

Recommendations
My apologies, these are not exactly little known movies. I did not notice that criteria but we are almost half way through the month so I should leave them.

1. Transformers Last Knight - I didn't expect this movie to be as good as it was. I had written off Transformers after the 2nd one but picked this one up in 4k on a crazy Amazon deal. If you have a decent sound system this one will give the subwoofer a work out, the audio/visuals are outstanding. Sure the plot isn't all that great but it is what it is.
2. Darkest Hour - Golden Globe Winner, fantastic movie!
3. First Man - I had not heard much about this movie but was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It's a family friendly movie that may help to get your children interested in some very cool history. I had no idea about the life of Neil Armstrong, I really didn't know much about him besides the obvious. This will tick off #17 in the alternate catagory.
4. Pet Semetary - I really enjoyed the remake! If you have a Dolby Atmos setup, the jump scares from this movie are going to get you haha. The dripping water in the basement creeped my son right out!
5. Joker - I wasn't expecting this movie to be as good as it was! It's controversial, but well worth a watch and the physical release is coming up.
