The Summer Movie Challenge: A Conclusion

At the start of the summer this year, I challenged myself to complete these 52 goals by watching films that fit in them. Whilst I kind of abandoned my list (which you can check out here), I have looked back and seen how many of the challenges I actually managed to complete. I tried my best not to repeat films, but I simply had to for a few of the questions. Here is a reminder of the questions below, and then continue reading to see what films I watched that corresponds with each one.
