Default December 2022 50 Movie Challenge

December Theme: Make-Your-Own-Challenge (40 movies)
For December, just chill and organize your movies into categories of your choosing (be creative). The goal is 8 categories of 5 movies each but you can divide up your 40 movies however you want.

December Recommendations Category (optional): Movies that take place during winter or lesser known films (5 Movies)
As an example, the lesser known films can be straight to video or films that have found a second life on streaming services. In your initial tracking post, everyone list 5-10 winter or lesser known films that you think others may not have seen and may enjoy. Then for the ones you watch for this category, mention who recommended the film in your post.

December Featured Category (optional): Christmas/Holiday (5 movies)
Watch 5 holiday movies (Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus/New Year).
___________________________________

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:
    60 Movies - 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.

I've said it before: if you've seen one Marx Brothers film, you've seen them all. Groucho has a lot of bad (but funny) jokes, Chico plays the piano and sings, and Harpo plays the harp...oh, and there is a story going on somewhere in the background

Both Sides of the Blade (first-time watch)

Can’t say I’ve been all that impressed with this year’s crop of screeners so far. Or maybe I just saw most of the good ones at festivals already. There’s usually a hidden gem or two in here though, so I’ll keep working through them. That’s how I found The Novice last year, so it’s usually worth it.
