« on: July 23, 2023, 06:36:13 AM »
Letterboxd Scavanger Hunt

This month Iwill be doing the Letterboxd Scavengerhunt hosted by the user named preisman Below is the propts... 1 prompt per day of the month... that I have to watch though  I can watch as fast as I like. That is if I can watch them all before the month is over. Wish me luck!

Prompts:
1. My first Scavenger Hunt was #41 way back in 2018. It was one of the main reason I joined Letterboxd. And a reason I keep coming back. I only reached 13 out of 30 films for my first try. And I really want to finally complete the challenge.

2. If there is one great thing about the Letterboxd Scavenger Hunt is finding new and interesting movies. Sadly, I can't get around to watching every movie in my lists. I average about 8 movies from a Scavenger Hunt each month. The most interesting films get added to my Watchlist. I also fail to make any serious progress watching those movies. HELP!

3. Raise Hell Praise Dale
Watch 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story or any movie about auto racing

4. By the way, I'm Jon.
Watch a movie from a director named John, Jon, Juan, Jean, or any other iteration I don't know about


5. Big fan of Arrow Films and have started a nice collection over the past couple of years.

6. Also a big fan of Criterion Collection and have a fun little collection.

7. I love cars; old, new, slow, fast. I don't care. Last year I bought my dream car, the Jensen Interceptor. Massive life goal completed. Don't know what it is, I can help.

8. I need more help. I created an ever-evolving list of the most popular films I have not seen by year.

9. I do not give 5 star ratings out often. If I have, I consider them very special to me in some way. Or they are so bonkers I can't help but love them. It's not usually because they are perfect films.
Watch one of my 5 STAR rated movies

10. Ten out of 10, would recommend
Watch a movie you would recommend to anyone, everyone, and ME. I will try to watch it. Or I would at least add it to my watchlist for a later date. If I have seen it, then it must be worth watching it again. Cheers!

11. I am born and raised in Florida. It is home. It is a great place. And at times it can be terrible. But, it does bring me joy and I love seeing Florida in film.
Watch a movie that takes place in Florida


12. Do people still go to the movies?
Watch a movie in theaters

13. Dead Center (well nearly)
Watch a movie with a mostly BLACK poster

14. I joined Letterboxd in 2018 and went nuts. Over 500 movies, films, shorts...
Watch a movie I watched in 2018

15. I joined the Air Force 19 years ago and I'm getting close to retiring. I can't explain how positive the experience has been. I'll leave the service a far better person than when I joined.
Watch a positive military movie. It doesn't need to be pro-military, just something that entertaining, exciting, funny, whatver...

16. Also, Air Force
Watch a movie that takes place on a plane

17. One more, retiring. I'm too old for this shit.
Watch a Lethal Weapon movie


18. Back to Letterboxd. The world map is addictive. I have been trying to fill my map for some time now. I think I am close and hope to finish it this year.
Watch a movie from a country you have not seen a movie from

19. Speaking of countries. I used to live in Australia for a few years. Absolutely loved it.

20. Remember when I had you watch a movie I gave 5 stars. Well....

23. This one is easy

25. I also have a cat and her name is Karate Kat

26. August usually means summer barbeques or vacations or break from school. It was fun enjoying winter in Australia when I lived there.
Watch a winter movie if you are in the northern hemisphere or a summer movie if you are in the southern hemisphere

27. James Bond is the greatest movie series ever. It has oddly influenced a few things in my life like traveling the world.
Watch a movie set in a location you would love to visit

28. I love to run! I love to run for a long time. And I love to run every where I go. I totally understand why Tom Cruise runs in all his movies. I actually love doing ultra marathons. I have a goal to complete my first 100 miler next year.
Watch a movie over 150 minutes

29. Alright, that took a while. Let's do a short film. Let's also cover my favorite YouTuber. Beau Miles runs, goes on adventures, is funny, enjoys the simple things, and makes amazing little films that I can't get enough of.
Watch a Beau Miles film. His stuff is all on YouTube.

30. Nicolas Cage
Watch a movie from Nicolas Cage

31. I love bad movies. I love exploitation films. B-Movies. All those weird, odd, and unusual movies we don't always talk about. This is a go-to list to help me find new "gems" that fill my hunger for shlock and cheese.
Watch a movie from Exploitation films, B-movie cheese, grindhouse trash, and other assorted cult cinema : A to Z

Scavenger Hunt 101
Task #17.

Watch a Lethal Weapon movie I really enjoyed this final chapter in the franchise. It is a very strong conclusion. In this one they added Chris Rock... who I am not a huge fan of but I really liked how they did his part of the story. And they also had Jet Lee who was just plain awesome. Lots of great action and lots of laughs. I highly recommend this entire franchise... Is a must see!

Reynolds plays one-time pro quarterback Paul Crewe, now behind bars for leading the state police on a wild chase in a "borrowed" car. Eddie Albert (Roman Holiday), in a sharp turn away from his "Green Acres" persona, is the sadistic, scheming warden who recruits Crewe to form a team of convicts to go up against the warden's polished, semi-pro team of prison guards in a championship game. Crewe has agreed that his team – dubbed the "Mean Machine" – will provide only passive resistance to the squad of brutal guards. But the gridiron showdown turns into a gritty game of cunning strategy and outright survival as the Mean Machine defies the warden's iron-fisted control and attempts to go the distance in The Longest Yard!

My Thoughts:

Scavenger Hunt 101
Task #11.

Watch a movie that takes place in Florida I enjoyed this one. It was a lot a fun and had a few familar faces in it as well. Had some real characters for players and of course a real asshole of a warden. One thing I never could stand is a man that don't know how to keep his word. Film has plenty of laughs in it. Well worth the time put in to watch it.
