Initially I undertook the 50 Film Challenge over a decade ago as an effort to broaden my horizons. For the early years I struggled to meet the target, until I rediscovered my love of Old Hollywood and the movies of the Golden Age of Cinema. And now I can easily surpass that fifty film goal. My personal best is over 200! Although I’m going yo set myself a more leisurely goal for 2022 and opting to view 100 movies over the next twelve months.
