Lol flavo, and they are « just » concomitant watches from your <400 spree I guess ?
There should be a special challenge league for the watch harder.

Oh yeah, when I saw his reply I was like "gee, I'm glad that people aren't playing strategically this round and keeping their actual number of viewings on the lowdown". :pinch: That said, it doesn't really affect me this month since there is no way that I will be competitive enough to come close to the Top 5 in any of this months' Challenges. :ermm: And yeah, I'm assuming it's more a case of flavo suddenly realising that all those films were eligible rather than strategically listing them all in one bunch. :P

This British romantic drama feels incredible long and drawn out as a close to two-hour affair. Ralph Fiennes is well cast as ever as a wealthy and bored aristocrat and Liv Tyler is okay as his love interest, but there is not enough going on between them to warrant such a lengthy production. The film has its strong patches though; a duel filmed in the mist near a gloomy harbour is particularly exquisite (see above). The sets and costumes are elegant too.

An amiable battle of the sexes comedy from the Carry On team. With a female empowerment angle, this is one of the better entries in the comedy franchise, and quite possibly the very best. Plot points aside, the film benefits from spinning the tightest narrative of the first seven movies with only two protagonists and jokes that enhance the plot (i.e. not the skits typical of the series). Hattie Jacques and Sid James play well off each other too.

Nah, no strategy to that. I actually thought I had posted last Friday but apparently never hit submit, so I ended up pulling a Roger and just blasting out a ton all at once. While < 400 has been my main challenge, I have been actively looking for romance movies within that too. The UK challenge is the more incidental one for me actually.
That is why I like better when double/triples are not so easy but the majority probably thinks otherwise.

I actually advocated for challenges that didn't overlap when the schedule was being put together. I don't even post in the triple challenge thread anymore just cuz it's so much overhead. The problem with a challenge like < 400 is that it's super hard to find anything that wouldnt have a lot of doubles and triples unless the other challenge is all time box office or something.

I agree that it's best to try to avoid overlapping challenges - and we tried as much as possible to do that when setting up the schedule the last year. We matched up Silents with the 21st Century, the Western genre with Iran and so on. Unfortunately with some challenges it is impossible to avoid significant overlap, and I think Romance is just as problematic as <400 Checks in this regard. Most of the romantic films that I have seen so far this month are only incidentally romantic, but are listed as Romance on IMDb. In fact, the genre is so widespread and inclusive that it is the genre that I have seen the fourth most films from according to IMDb! There were issues last month too with Mystery/Thriller and Low IMDb Rating leading to tons of doubles, and again Thriller is very a common genre. I don't think that we can totally avoid significant overlap with these big genres (Comedy will be another one if it is rerun next year), but yeah, I would be keen to discuss ways to reduce overlap when we set up the schedule in November.

I understand the opposing opinions, but I like doubles and triples.

No doubt we'll have some healthy discussion about the issue in November. I know you're not alone.

A philanthropic thief has to contend with a vicious gang who he has twice thwarted in this jovial British comedy. With a couple of implausible twists and turns, Crackerjack begins stronger than it ends, but it is still an entertaining ride from start to finish with the ever-reliable Tom Walls in very good form, having fun toying with the police and unsettling his nervous accomplice. There is also a fun subplot with Walls publishing a novel about his exploits.

This eighth Carry On venture benefits from exquisite sets and costumes as it spins an 18th century shipbound tale. The project is once again shot in rich colour too. Such technical qualities aside though, this is a lesser entry. With very few Carry On regulars and an overload of jokes from Juliet Mills cross-dressing, this is not as vibrant or as funny as series par. Mills and Bernard Cribbins are also barely more than serviceable as romantic protagonists.

26. Weathering with You (2019)

This follow-up feature from Your Name director Makoto Shinkai has some spectacular images (heavy rainfall; rapidly clearing skies; transparent skin; fireworks) and while the love story is nowhere near as touching as in Your Name, there is an intriguing enough fantasy mythology at hand to keep things interesting from start to finish. The film relies a little too heavily on fades to black, sentimental songs and very blatant product placement though.

27. Carry on Cleo (1964)

Image

This Carry On entry places a comedy spin on history and benefits from being filmed on the abandoned sets of the Burton/Taylor movie in rich colour. What really makes the film work though is the humour, which is far more wordplay-based (rather than pratfall-based) than usual for the series. The film also has a lot of fun playing around with Shakespeare's classic dialogue, especially Caesar's attempts to say "countrymen" constantly thwarted.

28. Lucky Star (1929)

Image

Playing a character three quarters her actual age, Janet Gaynor is convincingly youthful yet mature when it comes to love here, while Charles Farrell is charming and does some amazing things with his wheelchair. Farrell has a memorable fight on top of a telegraph pole early on too. The 'who should she chose?' story here is incredibly simple though and hardly Sophie's Choice. The somewhat insensitive ending also leads an odd taste in the mouth.

Well, this was two different films for me - there was the water sequence directed by Busby Berkeley, which was absolutely STUNNING and beautiful to look at; easily some of his best work, and Gold Diggers of 1933 is safely in my all-time top 10. Then there was the rest of the movie... boring at times, often annoying, and more than casually racist/sexist. Also, I've decided I don't like James Cagney. I have this as a 6/10, which is only that high because of the water sequence.

Ben Whishaw does okay within the confines of his role here and the supporting cast are decent, but the basic plot is quite simple and feels stretched even at less than 90 minutes. Everything revolves around the questions of when he will tell his closeted dead lover's mother that he was gay, and while he hires a translator to help them communicate, this is mostly shoehorned into a subplot in which he tries to help the widowed woman find love again.
