Picking a movie is hard to do.


Hallo meine Lieben,

second post for this month....I am on fire.  Feels good to be back in the game. So, I read about this film challenge on my friend Erin's blog and I thought that participating would help to make myself watch more movies this time. I never really find the time. So yeah, now I have to. You can read everything about the challenge here


Pinterest - love this movie by the way. 


And here are my picks...

one. any set in new york city. - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

two. any incorporating hot air balloons in the story. - Up

three. any featuring a child as the main character. - Stand by me

four. any disney film. - Frankenweenie

five. any set in egypt OR have an egyptian character OR star an egyptian actor/actress. -Night at the museum ( I decided to let it count)

six. a close friend or family member's favorite film. - Wild

seven. any with the word great in the title. - The Great Gatsby (I wanted to pick The Great Mouse Detective but it's against the rules because I have already seen it. )

eight. any starring harrison ford. - I would love to pick the new Star Wars movie but the challenge ends November 30. And because I have only seen the first Indiana Jones so far I will watch one of the others. 

nine. any featuring an idiot as the main character.  - Our Idiot Brother

ten. any mentioned in levis strauss' list: denim in the oscars: a look at jeans in cinema. - Brokeback Mountain

eleven. a film about a knight. - A Knight's Tale

twelve. a love story. - Before Midnight

thirteen. a movie about something miraculous. -  Michael

fourteen. any starring an actor/actress with the same first name as yours. - Tammy. I could not find an actress named Katrin so I chose Kathy Bates. That's close. 

fifteen. a film about the olympics. - I love Cool Runnings by the way. But it must be a new to me movie which is why I have to pick Munich

sixteen. a film on time magazine's list: the top ten newspaper movies. - Zodiac (Another newspaper movie I want to watch is True Story but it is not on the list)

seventeen. any with a question in the title. - Dude, where's my car? (Yeah, seriously. Couldn't think of anything else)

eighteen. any with a score of ninety percent or greater on rotten tomatoes. - Paddington

nineteen. a film about a superhero. - Guardians of the Galaxy

twenty. any with subtitles. - The Swedish version of The Girl Who Played With Fire

twenty-one. any incorporating unicorns in the story. - Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay ( I am sure that will be my new all time favorite)

twenty-two. a film about a personal victory. - The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey

twenty-three. a film with black or white in the title. - (No, not Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle) Snow White and The Huntsman (maybe I will watch Harold and Kumar anyway). I cannot come up with a good one here - help! 

twenty-four. any set in a country you would most like to visit. - The Keeper of Lost Causes

twenty-five. a film set in a zoo. - I like animal sanctuaries. Most zoos are not very good places. So I am cheating here and I choose Forks Over Knives because I care about animals. 


Do you have any better ideas? Please share! 

Have a lovely day!

    1. Yeah, it was pretty hard to find a movie for some of categories! Hope I can watch a lot of those movies! And I am sure I will love A Knight's Tale too. Don't know why I have not watched it before!

  3. these are hard. I won't be participating but I will answer a few of these & I'm only listing movies that I have watched & recommended:

    1 - set in nyc - Enchanted

    3 - feature a child - Big Game

    4 - disney film - mulan

    5 - Egypt - stargate

    8 - harrison for - air force one

    12 - love story - love letter - a Japanese film, very beautiful & sad

    13 - miraculous - northfolk

    15 - olympics - the cutting edge

    17 - question in title - how to steal a million with audrey hepburn - I think the question mark is implied, there are many movies with such titles

    19 -superhero - superman - Christopher Reeve version

    20 - with subtitles - 'beauty and the beast' I just saw this beautiful 2014 french version with Vincent Cassel & Lea Seydoux - La Belle Et La Bete - it's definitely worth seeing

    21 -personal victory - wait until dark

    23 -black/white - white house down

    24 -country I would like to visit - funny face

    25 - set in zoo - I couldn't think of any but I think anything with animals will do - ladyhawke, ponyo, splash, etc

    that's it for me, hope you have a lovely day

    1. Lissa, you rock! Thanks for sharing your choices! I love them, I think I need to watch some of them as well! I am sure I cannot watch all the movies on the list but it was fun to come up with them!

      Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Katrin, you picked so many great movies!!!!!!!
    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - have you read the book? This one pulls at my heartstrings.
    Up - so uplifting!
    Frankenweenie - pretty entertaining
    The Great Gatsby - are you watching the one with Leo? I love Baz Luhrman's movies...this one is visually stunning! The costumes, the sets, the music (and these aren't things I necessarily notice in movies)
    Munich - such an interesting story
    Zodiac - really good
    Guardians of the Galaxy is SO good!
    White/Black movie - I struggled with that category too, and I heard the movie we picked is really bad. If you come up with a better one, let me know.

    1. Thank you, Erin! It was so hard to come up with the movies! I don't think I can watch them all but I am sure it will be lots of fun!
      I did read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close a long time ago but never watched the movie! I hope it will be good!
      And I always wanted to watch Up! So excited for this one!
      Yeah, I am planning to watch the one with Leo! I am sure I will like it a lot!
      I have no idea why I never watched Zodiac. I mean, I read so much about serial killers and watch many documentaries but I never never seen the movie!
      I do think I need to change the Black/White movie. It must be so bad. :) We need to find a better one!

  13. I love Boondock Saints! One of my all-time faves. This was a tough list. I tried to come up with answers in my head while I read and there are so many I just blanked on - so good job coming up with one for each topic! I didn't know they're making a film out of The Keeper of Lost Causes - I really should finally read that before it comes out!!

    Replies
    1. Boondock Saints is so good. I can watch it again and again. Except of the scene with the cat. I always skip that! The list really is tough. I had to do some research before I found all the movies. You should totally read The Keeper of Lost Causes. It's so good. And I really need to watch that movie!

  14. Wow, that's such an interesting challenge. I should really look up the rules, though I don't have that much time for movies now.

    Up is one of my favourite animation movies, it's so beautiful! And I haven't seen Paddington yet - maybe I should get the DVD for Christmas time :)

    Also, I just nominated you for the 'Sisterhood of the World' blogger award. Maybe you find some time to answer these travel related questions (I don't have that much time for blogging anymore hahaha)
