Two quick Christmas specials to finish my Holiday category and finish the month. I hadn't seen these in a few years and enjoyed them for the nostalgia factor as I saw each of these for the first time as a child.

I've never picked movies based on them being Thanksgiving-themed before. She's gotta have it has a short but painful Thanksgiving dinner scene.
Thanksgiving
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (short) USA, 1973 *
She's Gotta Have It USA, 1986 *
William S. Burroughs - Thanksgiving Prayer (short) USA, 1990 *


My favourites from this batch of 2022-movies are Fall, Hustle, Cha Cha Real Smooth, The Wonder, Oppy and Wakanda Forever. Hustle is a collection of sports movie clichees, but it worked. I would have enjoyed it even more if I followed the NBA, though, it seems cameos was one of its attractions.

Default November Recap - "30 Years of Film"

Finished just shy of Silver with 39 movies. I didn't quite do a full 30 years of film. I came up 3 or 4 movies short. I was attempting to do roughly 1973-2003. I got most of it though. 18 first viewings. Unfortunately I didn't get to anyone's recommendations as I was mainly focused on completely the main challenge.

Best First Viewings: The Wicker Man, Dawn of the Dead

Best Rewatches: At Close Range, Superman: The Movie, Just One of the Guys, Aladdin

Worst Movie: North Shore

Default November 2022 Recap

I was really focusing on finishing up my unwatched blu-rays (only have the rest of my Olympic set to go for now), so I didnt fill out the 30 year challenge quite like I wanted to, especially since I morphed mine into a 50 year challenge. But I still got plenty of movies in this month at least, including finally finishing up my Godzilla and Bergman sets.

Im glad December is largely a Create-Your-Own-Category month because I have a lot of FYC screeners to catch up on.

Achieved: Platinum


Best First-Time Watches: Tr, Decision to Leave

Best Rewatches: The Shining, Jumanji, V for Vendetta, Pans Labyrinth, Miracle on 34th Street

A great month buoyed by a heavy Noirvember bunch of films and an illness keeping me housebond for a few days. Didn't finish the 30 Years challenge but I got to a lot of good new stuff and I did almost complete the Recommendations category with some great movies in there. I'm very excited for a month full of Christmas movies and 2022 catch up.

FINAL STATS
Total: 65 -- PLATINUM
49 first time viewings
Best First Time Viewings: La Dolce Vita, Ran, In Cold Blood, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, TR, Aftersun, Thief
Best Rewatches: A Christmas Story, Singin' in the Rain, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Miracle on 34th Street (1947), Laura, The Sex Lives of College Girls
Worst Watches: The Automat, Quicksand
