ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge – March

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. Watch any movie that has the same title as a song (ex. Stand By Me, Can't Buy Me Love, Blue Velvet, Alfie, Walk The Line, etc.)
2. Watch any movie featured on the podcast How Did This Get Made (idea from nicolekidman)
3. Watch any film that takes place in the future.
4. My mom has literally never gotten a movie title right. And according to this list a lot of others haven't as well, watch any movie from the list.
5. Watch any movie that has a rotten score (59% or below) on Rotten Tomatoes.
6. They Shoot Pictures Don’t They released their latest edition of The 21st Century’s Most Acclaimed Films, watch any movie on that list.
7. Final Destination is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month (March 17th, 2000 was its original release date), watch any movie that features an actor/actress from the Final Destination series (movies 1-5).
8. Movie adaptations of books are common, sometimes the authors hate the movie though. Watch any movie adaption where the author hated it (there's more options, but here's some examples)
9. Watch any movie that is considered a box office bomb.
10. Watch any movie that was referenced/watched in the TV show Gilmore Girls.

ONTD, what do you plan on watching this month? What did you watch during the month of February?
