126. Carry on Spying (1964) UK 148 checks [double] Beat you by 11 hours, sol :P
I don't consider myself in competition with you. ;) There's no way that I will have enough free time to finish the series by the end of the month, though I'll be curious to find out your best and worst of the series when you complete it. :sweat:

Still as funny as ever upon revision, this Hammer horror movie spoof from the Carry On team benefits from great period sets and costumes as well as dialogue that is droll and witty. The film's best asset though is the casting of the ever reliable Harry H. Corbett in the lead role, playing a sarcastic, henpecked Englishman as only he can do. Kenneth Williams has rarely been funnier too, with some really wacky facial tics and mannerisms here.

Image

A meandering yet fascinating time capsule of 1960s America. Gary Lockwood is not easy to warm to, yet his malaise is very easy to identify with - so anxious about the uncertainty of whether or not he will be drafted that he cannot keep his mind on (or commit to) one thing. As for the titular shop, it comes into the narrative as Lockwood tries to romance a lady who works there; but does he really want her or is he further trying to distract himself?

126. Carry on Spying (1964) UK 148 checks [double] Beat you by 11 hours, sol :P
I don't consider myself in competition with you. ;) There's no way that I will have enough free time to finish the series by the end of the month, though I'll be curious to find out your best and worst of the series when you complete it. :sweat:
I had seen several before the challenge.

Carry on Screaming in Horror, the three first in the 50s challenge etc etc

I have 8 left now, with 4 days to go so that's easy math. But at 22/30 it's might be Carry On Cabby. I have to crunch the numbers

126. Carry on Spying (1964) UK 148 checks [double] Beat you by 11 hours, sol :P
I don't consider myself in competition with you. ;) There's no way that I will have enough free time to finish the series by the end of the month, though I'll be curious to find out your best and worst of the series when you complete it. :sweat:
I had seen several before the challenge.

Carry on Screaming in Horror, the three first in the 50s challenge etc etc

I have 8 left now, with 4 days to go so that's easy math. But at 22/30 it's might be Carry On Cabby. I have to crunch the numbers
Cabby is probably my second favourite so far (after Cleo). I might make a thread on the subject at the end of the month if I get the time.

To call the story here muddled would be an understatement with Chuck's attempts to infiltrate a secret ninja organisation and a possible terrorism conspiracy often pushed aside for Chuck to constantly remember the past. We do not see these events though; rather we oddly hear them trough some of the most ridiculous voiceover work ever committed to film as his narrated thoughts sporadically echo aloud at increasingly random points here.

* How cool would have that check number been had the film been called The Rectangle instead? :huh:

max, can you add a column for first checks in the bonus challenge table, or is that to much work this late in the game?

Dolly Parton is very lively in the lead role here and there are some great moments as she gives unconventional advice to her listeners when on air. The romance here is strictly by the numbers and quite predictable though. The film is also littered with montage sequences that chiefly seem to be there to showcase Parton's songs. Her tunes are catchy though and for the most part, this is a reasonably enjoyable affair. Spalding Gray has a fun bit part too.

128. Piccadilly (1929) 348 checks
After Toll of the Sea, I decided to check out another Anna May Wong film. She's as nuanced and radiant here if not more so as in that prior film. The story for this one also gives her a meatier role. So rather than relegated her to looking sad and forlorn for much of the picture, she by turns dazzles and is embroiled in a juicy murder plot. For sure recommended.

Image
129a. Habit (1982) 2 checks
The early short from Fessenden that eventually evolved into his full-length feature I wrote about already. This one is certainly more amateurish and more disjointed as well. But you can see the seeds of an interesting idea here.

Image
129b. Unedited Footage of a Bear (2014) 66 checks
Adult Swim has made several of these incredibly bizarre, borderline genius horror shorts (see also Too Many Cooks). It's not quite coherent enough for its own good but still offers something pretty fresh and fascinating.

Image
129c. Half Past Midnight (1988) 4 checks
The first half of this one is pretty dull with little going on but table setting. The last ten minutes really ramp up the extreme gore though despite the zero budget aesthetics.

Image
130-135. Amor de Perdição: Memórias de uma Família (1978) 110 checks
This 6-part miniseries I'm gonna be honest was a pretty hard sell for me. It had a very Shakespearean doomed romance vibe to it (in fact the english title is Doomed Love) with betrayals, families at odds, star-crossed lovers, etc. but with a more sweeping wider scope than the typical Shakespearean play and with somehow even bleaker storylines. Parts of it were pretty interesting but the soapy depressing nature of it was a big turn off for me.

Image
136. Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2019) 38 checks
If the name wasn't a clue, this new stand-up special from Chappelle seems to take as a theme to push people's buttons with some of his most trollbait subject matter I've ever seen from him (Bourdain's suicide, Michael Jackson and R. Kelly scandals, etc.). If you aren't easily offended, there's some really funny stuff here. Ever since his return from "sabbatical", Chappelle has been firing on all cylinders with his stand-up.

Image
137. Under the Skin (1997) 202 checks
Two sisters cope with the death of their mother in very different ways. Rose is married and pregnant, craving stability and getting upset when things aren't exactly as she wants them. Iris takes the opposite approach of devolving into a cycle of meaningless sex and debauchery on her way to self-destruction. It's primarily a character piece following Iris more than Rose and can be quite depressing at times to watch how low Iris will sink and whether she'll attempt to dig herself out.

Image
138. Gospodin oformitel a.k.a. Mister Designer (1987) 77 checks
Hm... So this is on the 500<400, huh? Very abstract for much of it's runtime with very little actual dialogue. At times it does offer some interesting fusions of music and visuals but ultimately just doesn't come together for me.

A movie about a sheep mutant in a desert American town. It's a restrained movie, though, the sheep doesn't start wreaking havoc until the last act.
7. L'enfant secret [The Secret Son] (Philippe Garrel, 1979) - 2/10 - 170 checks
Pretentious French garbage. There are some interesting cuts in some scenes, but most of it is long shots of people doing nothing.

Another shitty shark movie, but this one stars Dolph Lundgren. The plotting on this is less awful than some, but the shark is stupid.

44-51. The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann (2019, 60 Checks)
An 8-part miniseries that feels about 2 episodes too long. It goes into a number of theories, but delves into too much detail on some aspects, and not enough on others. The one thing they didn't really mention is how nice it is to have money and rich friends.

52. Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones (2019, 40 Checks)
I'm with flavo5000 on this special. It's deliberately provocative and offensive. If you can get past that, it's hilarious. I like that sort of humor, so it works for me. But a large part of what makes it work is where the comedian is coming from - the jokes don't work if you think the comedy is coming from a place of fear and hate, which I do not get from Chappelle. Fun fact: there's a bonus "Epilogue" that will autoplay on Netflix if you let the credits play all the way through.

Not his best material but still fun. His delivery is top notch as always.

My third Rollin movie this month. It suffers from the same things, stiff acting, continuity errors and excessive eroticism, but damn, there are some beautiful shots in here.

This is easily one of the best entries in the series with excellent period sets and costumes - as well as lots of fun from Sid James sabotaging a duel and donning several disguises. Charles Hawtrey has also rarely been funnier, sprouting some hilarious one liners during his beheading scene (see above). The film loses its way a bit towards the end as routine swashbuckling takes up more focus than witty lines and gags, but this is a pretty great ride.

12. Jubal (1956) 351 checks
Pretty good Western with an enjoyable cast. Early appearance by Charlie Bronson, and an always enjoyable Rod Steiger as the heavy.

13. Stars in My Crown (1950) 351 checks
This is a feel-good community-minded historical drama. It reminded me a lot of The Sun Shines Bright (and Judge Priest) in its late 19th century small-town setting and partial focus on post-bellum reconciliation. But I don't think it has the complexity or honesty of those John Ford movies. Like many 1940s/1950s movies that tried to address racial violence, it hedges its story (the violence here is explicitly economically motivated rather than racially motivated), and the violent mob is known as the "Nightriders" rather than the Klan because, gosh, the studios just hated pissing off the Klan. It also feels a lot like a Capra movie in its focus on people overcoming social problems through moral suasion and paeans to community ethos.

So yeah - I have this as what would be the 17th-ranked challenge in terms of total points (we're at 1252 as I type this) out of 211 official challenges completed. We'll overtake 16th place later today (1279 - 2018 Documentary).

There have actually only been 24 challenges over 1000 total points, and the 15 you linked in that table are in a different class (to me, at least). Like we have a nice distribution of total points from 22 (the 2016 Samurai challenge was not popular) to 1279. Then we have 15 outliers that are just at another level. My gut is that we'll get to the ~1500 level with this challenge, but not much beyond.
