G'Day one and all and welcome to the best movie challenge you will do this year. The challenge where you get to watch movies from the greatest country in the world Australia (and some other insubstantial surrounding countries, lol) and you get to do it with me as your wonderful host. What a great way to spend your April.
Watch as many movies from Australia, New Zealand and the rest of Oceania as you can in April.

Bonus Challenge - Tell Me What to Watch
Every participant is entitled to give me one Australian movie that does not appear on my above mentioned "Australian Movies Ranked" list (those are movies I have watched since I started rating movies nearly 3 years back). It doesn't matter if I have seen them previous to then as long as they don't appear on that list. I will then endeavour to watch said movies and the winner is the participant who gives me what I deem the best choice.

Bonus Challenge 3 - Country Spread
While all my talk is about Australia it is of course not the only country represented in this challenge. This challenge is to see who can watch at least one movie from the most eligible countries.
