Finishing this challenge and must say it was my favorite of the year and I even shifted from focusing on my own challenge (documentaries) to this one.

Asia 7
Africa 0
Europe 23
North America 3
Oceania 2
South America 3

A big country in Europe is missing. I was going to watch Klaus (2019) from Spain but never got around to it.
I saved Latin, what did you ever do ?

The final day of 2019 has been crazy-busy for me, and now I have to get ready for New Years' Eve, so this is it for me. Unfortunately I don't have the spare time to write capsule comments for my last three entries here. I can say though that I sadly did not get too much out of any of them; all decent films, but none as impressive as the trio that I saw yesterday for this Challenge.

Thanks for hosting, blocho. It's been a blast. Awesome bonus challenge as usual, even though keeping up with jero is something that few if any of us are capable of doing. Congrats on your decisive win jero, well done on maintaining second blueboybob, and my deepest apologies to you hurlu if I end up kicking you down to 4th place with this final update.

I like "Any country on the IMDB list" and I would love "Even countries no longer around". Just to extend the list of possibilities!

No. Some participants might still post updates here though if they didn't get around to posting a final update before New Year's Eve.

Wow, December turned out to be a terrible movie month for me. Too much stuff going on in real life to dedicate any time at all to watching....

2. Canoa - A Shameful Memory (Cazals, 1975). Mexico. Pretty darn good! Gut wrenching indictment of the church (and indirectly, the Mexican state).

1. Frozen (Buck & Lee, 2019). United States
2. Canoa - A Shameful Memory (Cazals, 1975). Mexico

Thanks for a beautifully-handled challenge, blocho. It proved exhilarating and intoxicating and was a lovely way to close out 2019. Happy New Year and here's to the travels and explorations that await in 2020!

Final Challenge Summary and Results

The Travel the World Challenge, much like the Mercury Program, is over. Thanks to all who participated. It was a joy to travel the world this past month and to be a host as you did the same.

Headline Stats
Thirty-eight participants combined for 910 points. That works out to a mean score of 23.9 points and a median of 20 points. Jeroeno dominated the challenge from start to finish, ending with a total of 107 points. Congrats to jeroeno for winning this challenge as well as completing the insane 36-in-36 mega-challenge in 2019. Blueboybob finished second with 50 points, while sol and hurluberlu tied for third with 44 points. See the OP for the complete table of results.

Bonus Challenge: Travel the Continents
Few people traveled the continents as well as jeroeno, who won the titles for Europe (37 points), Asia (29), North America (11), and South America (10). Jeroeno shared the African title with sol (14 points), who also won Oceania outright with 7 points.

Years
[Not counting shorts for this section of the stats page]
Participants watched movies ranging from 1916 to 2019. The most popular years were 2019 (66 points), 2014 (40 points), and 2016 (37 points). The median year of release was 2001. Here's the breakdown by decade:
