    Task 8:
    An animated foreign film.
    My 100th film of the year! I knew it needed to be special and since there's no way of going wrong choosing a Miyazaki film, I decided it was time for 'My Neighbor Totoro'. And it didn't let me down. As light-hearted as a movie can be, it truly feels like a warm hug and I can't find better words to describe it. I couldn't help but smile all the time while watching this. There's something so pure and genuine about kids and Miyazaki captures it perfectly in this movie.

    Task 6: A film with a primarily orange poster.

And though this wasn't enough for me to love him, I now, at least, can see more of the genius everyone talks about. I wasn't going to give it a good rating, but it really turned my head upside down between the middle and the end of the movie. Even though I don't like the ending very much, it's still a spectacular movie.

    A non-musical film that features a dance number
    It's not easy for me to find comedy movies that I like, but this is a perfect example of a film that fully works for me. It made me really laugh out loud a lot of times. It even made me cry. Yes, I am super emotional, but it's really impossible for me not to relate to Frances when she says goodbye to her parents after…

    Task 22: A film from willowybeing's Michael Mann's Favourite Films/Influences list.
    After watching two Kubrick films (The Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey) and not exactly loving any of them, I thought to myself "am I doing something wrong?". After watching this movie, I think the answer is probably yes, I must've been doing something wrong. Apart from not understanding the end (maybe it's a must in Kubrick's films), there's not a single thing I didn't…
