Pictured: 2019 Doubling the Canon nominees King Rat and The Long and the Short and the Tall.
Watch as many war movies as you can from March 1, 2019 to March 31, 2019.
- Each feature film (over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- 60 minutes of short films counts as one entry.
- 120 minutes of TV episodes counts as one entry.
- 1 episode of any miniseries counts as one entry.
- Rewatches are allowed and are good for the soul.
- Please include year of release when listing your viewings.
I will be (time permitting) tracking all feature films (not shorts or TV episodes) watched for this Challenge. I do not, however, have the spare time to endlessly research everything. I'm not about to guess what you have seen, so if you post films without years of release or with an obscure alternative title, I will simply leave your viewings out of any weekly stat updates.
I reserve the right to exclude participants who intentionally number their viewings incorrectly. If you play the game, you're expected to play properly.
Final results will be posted between 2:30pm and 3:00pm GMT on April 2 - at which point it will have been April everywhere in the world for more than a whole day. While you are welcome to post updates beyond this point, any such updates will not be included in the final results. Your choice whether you miss the deadline or not; besides, if it's April on your side of the world, shouldn't you be starting on one of next month's challenges, mm?

This thread will be updated at least once a day (more often if I am around and feel like it). Since I am updating manually, I would appreciate it if you list new films seen in a new post. If you would prefer just to endlessly edit your original post, please let me know so that I remember to check your post. Happy
