ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - April

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

1. I’m foolishly trying to watch every movie ever nominated for Best Picture (554 movies total), so, watch any movie that is on THIS list.
2. April 15th is World Art Day, a day to celebrate the fine arts, watch any movie about an artist (Big Eyes, Frida, At Eternity’s Gate, etc.).
3. April 19th is National Garlic Day, vampires hate garlic or some shit, watch any movie about a vampire (Interview With a Vampire, Dracula, Nosferatu, etc.).
4. April 23rd is World Laboratory Day, watch any movie that takes place in a lab (basically any movie with some scenes in a lab) or a movie about a scientist (Frankenstein, Re-Animator, Venom, Spiderman, etc.).
5. Watch any movie with a title that is just one word (Babel, Watchmen, Doubt, Zodiac, etc.).
6. Watch any movie where the main actor/actress started out in a soap opera (or your countries version of a soap opera). (Julianne Moore, Tommy Lee Jones, Margot Robbie, Salma Hayek, Morgan Freeman, etc.)
7. Watch any movie that is featured in Box Office Mojo’s highest grossing films of all time.
8. Watch any movie in a language you wish you spoke.
9. Watch any movie whose title has an acronym in it (THIS should be helpful, but there's more options out there).
10. Use THIS random movie roulette and watch whatever movie you get (you can honestly just pick a random ass movie that interests you off this list, I don't care).

ONTD, what do you plan on watching this month? What did you watch during the month of March? This is late, sorry!
