G'Day one and all and welcome to the first ever challenge hosted by me here on this humble forum. As shown by the machismo portrayed above it is time to get your adrenaline pumping as we enter the world of action movies and all those cheesy one-liners (which I hope to see a lot of in your posts). As this is my first challenge I didn't mess with a winning formula and have ripped the below rules from the last action challenge held just two years ago. If you feel anything needs changing than I am open for discussion, if not than the rules will stand as are and we will proceed accordingly. I kept the three official lists from the previous challenge but removed the unofficial as some were out of date so hit me up with any more lists were action movies can be found and I will add them to the below lists. Lastly I added a special section entitled Wayne's World (yes my real name's Wayne, deal with it) giving two other lists that if anyone is interested they could take from outside of ICM but are both parts of my online movie life, a chance for extra discussion and a way for you all to get to know me better. So everyone there is only one thing left to say, Lights, Camera, ACTION!!!
Goal: Watch as many action movies as possible.
- A feature film (Anything over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- A total of 60 minutes of short films count as one entry.
- For Mini-Series or tv shows (40 minute episodes or longer) each episode counts as an entry.
- For Mini-Series or tv shows with shorter episodes (25 minutes or so), the 60 minutes rule applies.
- Rewatches are welcome.
- For the purposes of this challenge, any film on one of the approved lists below counts as an Action film, as does any film tagged with the "Action" genre on IMDb/iCM
