27. Estranged (Levins, 2015) 38 checks
A dark low-budget drama. It starts off badly, but it gets better towards the end when it gets unexpectedly dark and nasty, but there's nothing to make it stand out and compensate for how grey and dull everything looks.
4/10

Image

28. Warlock: The Armageddon (Hickox, 1993) 181 checks
Not as good as the first Warlock. Julian Sands and his magical murders warlocks magical murders are highly entertaining, rather reminiscent of Wishmaster and filled with bloody effects and early CGI. The other half of the film, which deals with a couple of teens learning magic and training to fight the warlock is very bad.
4/10

Image

29. The Killer Inside Me (Kennedy, 1976) 27 checks
I read the book and watched both film versions. The 2010 version was very faithful to the book but failed to get into the protagonist's head and seemed superficial. This one is a much more less faithful adaptation and also much more boring and badly made. It looks like it was made for TV, and it wastes the entire first half of the film with unnecessary scenes before the actual story starts.
3/10

12. The Damned (Joseph Losey, 1962) - 4/10 - 379 checks
Starts out as a weird, yet interesting romance between an older American and the sister of a British bike gang leader. Then it swerves into Sci-Fi territory, with some kids being raised on a military base. Nice cinematography, but it got dull in the second half.

13. Uninvited (Greydon Clark, 1988) - 8/10 - 147 checks
Really fun B-movie about a monster living inside of a cat that gets on board a yacht. The performances are surprisingly good, there are some nice gory practical effects (even though the monster is clearly a static puppet, it just adds to the charm) and the soundtrack was pretty groovy as well. I recommend it if you like campy horror films.

Very disappointed; more or less 2018's Shoplifters family barging in on a wealthy family everyday life. It is solid direction, sometimes funny but incredibly shallow and unoriginal.

Final Stats and Challenge Update

Users
Through the end of August, we've had 41 (+1) participants in the <400 Challenge (hell yeah!)! albajos two-stepped and three-stepped into another victory, finishing with 175. flavo5000 put up a number that would win most months (160), but finished in second place. jeroeno (117), jdidaco (108), and 72allinncallme (93) round out the top five. 32 people finished in double-digits, 25 of whom were over 20. The average participant had 35.95 points, and would rank 13th.

Leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Side Challenge: Ultra Obscurity
Through the end of August, we have some clear models of obscurity chasing. Cinepolis finished with the lowest average checks (3.24 checks/film), but ranks 7th after the score adjustments. jdidaco claimed victory in the bonus challenge with a simple average of 28.23 and an adjusted average of 43.47. Shout out to RogerTheMovieManiac88 who led the way with 30 first-to-checks.

Side challenge leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Short Talk About Shorts
I track challenge data in a weird way, but it works for me. Each film/episode watched gets a row in my spreadsheet; so I track the title, year, and who watched it (and ICM checks, like for this challenge). But shorts weird things up - each short gets a row, but doesn't count for a full point. So one metric I find interesting is the number of rows vs. the number of points. The Mystery/etc. challenge last month had 1537 points and 1558 rows; a different of only 21 (1.37% more rows than points). This challenge, which is a lot more friendly to shorts, has 1474 points and 1672 rows; a difference of 198 (13.4% more rows than points).

I'll report this out each week - any questions/additional stats requests, let me know.

Years
Films watched have ranged from 1906 to 2019, covering 106 unique years in film. 2019 is the most-watched year with 137 watches, followed by 2018 with 96 watches and 2017 with 75 watches. No other year is above 50. Our most recent year with zero watches is 1923. Here's a list of watch count by decade:

Most unexpected. :mellow: I thought I was out of the running for recycling the same spoiler tag as last year. :unsure: But yeah, I can't resist my movie-related puns where possible. Thanks again for hosting and all those detailed stats!

Do this one again? viewtopic.php?p=593062#p593062

And there the count of viewings is missing? Now it's a bulk of 2+ movies. But I'm guessing Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones and The Grass Is Greener won.


I focused for the most part on the 60s and 70s. And I see those decades were the most popular after 2010s, but did any of those single years beat any year in the 2010s?

Edited the stats post to include watch counts - I forgot to copy that column.

On the 60s and 70s vs. 2010s, 2014-16 were ranks 4-6 in watch count, while 1969 and 1970 were ranks 7-8. 2012 was a low-watch year; 13 years in the 60s/70s beat or tied that. So:

2013: 33
2012: 18
2011: 27
2010: 23

And the highest years in the range of 1960-1979:

1969: 38
1970: 33
1964: 32
1967: 30
