20 Movies


So, like quite a few people, over the past few weeks I’ve been playing along with the #20MovieChallenge on twitter. It has been a lot of fun watching people post scenes from their particular film archives and trying to identify the films in question.

All in all, the hardest bit of the exercise has probably been to try and narrow down the range of possibilities to just 20 films. I’m pretty certain I could produce another half a dozen 20s (at least) if I tried and every day someone posts yet another that makes me think: “Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about that one”.

So, anyway, if anyone is interested, here are the 20 that I shared; clicking on the thumbnail will open a larger version of the image:

One of the biggest surprises for me was actually how old many of these films were (6 of them being old than me).

Well done if you identified them all.
