When I saw The Fall Film Challenge mentioned on Life as Louise, I was intrigued. The challenge, hosted by Quirky Pickings, is to watch 25 films that you’ve never seen before and that fit into one of the 25 categories. And, you have to watch them between September 1st and November 30th. While I didn’t complete the challenge this time around (I blame you Hallmark movie channel), I did see quite a few movies I’ve been wanting to watch but kept putting off.

Based on the play by David Auburn, this movie is thought provoking and well acted.
This movie has a lot to say while being completely entertaining. I thought the concept was really interesting, especially considering reality TV had not taken over our culture yet.
about charity: an organization, an individual, a cause, an act… interpret this as you will. Woman in Gold
Based on a true story is often code for “this movie is going to be slow”, and that was exactly the case here. I enjoyed the flashback scenes the most. The period costumes were beautiful, and the most interesting parts of the story were about escaping to America.
This movie is hilarious. I could have done without the gross bit at the beginning and the almost non-stop f-bombs, but I laughed so much while I watched this.
about envy: a character, a plot device… use your imagination. Amadeus
Tom Hulce’s laugh is everything. I can see why the film won so many awards. The casting is spot on, and the sets and costumes are beautiful.
A fun Marvel movie that made me laugh a lot.
Kenneth Branagh’s mustache is ridiculous, but the film stays mostly true to the original story, and the costumes are fantastic.
The hair and makeup in this film is incredible, making the actors (who play several different roles) almost unrecognizable. The story is fascinating, too, as various characters and timelines are woven together to create something unique.
I’m not really into the X-men series, but it was great to watch while cleaning out my inbox.
A fun, magical tale with the added bonus of Christian Bale voicing Howl in the English version.
This is definitely a movie that makes you think. The acting, of course, is beautiful, and the story of women risking everything in order to get the vote is powerful.
This is not a fast paced movie. It took forever for anything to happen, and then, it just sort of fizzled. I still love Alan Rickman though.
A beautiful, heartbreaking film, this movie was well acted, but I liked the book better. The movie is slow moving, but everything from the costumes to the scenery and cinematography is like a postcard.
For a film about a passionate poet, this movie is strangely flat. Not even the costumes were good enough to redeem this film.
Such a beautiful movie. Now I want to read the book.
I wasn’t sure I was going to like this movie, but it was fun. It made no attempt to be gritty and real. Lol.
I read the book a few years ago and like it. But, the movie is unrelenting teen angst, and I’m just not in the mood for that.
Shoes! Designer handbags! Teenage entitlement mixed with celebrity obsession come together in this movie based on a true story. I think a lot of Sofia Coppola’s movies have an almost documentary style feel, and this film is no different.
What a weird movie. It’s not what you think it’s going to be about, and in the end, it’s pretty much just about two people on a spaceship.
What’s a movie you want to watch but haven’t seen yet?
