ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - August

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. August would normally be the month people go back to school. Watch any movie that deals with school, takes place in school, about someone in school, just something with school.
2. Watch any movie that takes place in a single day (some examples).
3. August 1st is Spider-Man Day, watch any movie that features any actor/actress that has appeared in any Spider-Man movie.
4. Watch any movie off the Sight & Sound Top 250 list.
5. Watch any movie off the Letterboxd list of best houses (if you've seen all of the top 20, then pick a random users list and watch something they nominated).
6. Watch any movie that was directed by a woman AND has a female lead.
7. TCM announced their Summer Under the Stars actors/actresses, pick anyone off the list and watch a movie they're in (doesn't have to be any of the movies TCM is showing).
8. Ennio Morricone recently died, watch any movie he composed the score for.
9. August 9th is Book Lovers Day, watch any movie based off a book.
10. Watch any movie that is a feature film directorial debut (some examples).

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