GrandGeekGatheringSmallShortLogoWelcome to the first site-wide challenge for GGG! A CHALLENGE is an event create by us that involves both you, the audience, but also ourselves in a grueling, multi-tasking exercise. These will be tough, sometimes physically, sometimes mentally, but always difficult!

Eric, Evan, Tim, and Tyler have accepted to be the players and the challenge requires them to watch a whole film, 45 minutes+, every day for 365 days. What happens if they miss one? Oh don’t you worry. We have some entertaining consequences for you guys to enjoy!

365 Day Movie Challenge

365 Day Movie Challenge

More James Bond movies! Okay, maybe these aren’t as awesome as I remember them being. In fact, it often seems like they’re parodying themselves, that part of the charm is the fact that no one cares. I don’t know, I’m thinking that I’ll...

Eric’s Week 22

Whooooooo, James Bond! Yeah. Oh wait. What were these movies about? Holy crap that’s a LOT of sexism. Wait. Why did James just leave cover to check on that girl? He’s still being shot at! Oh wait, they stopped once they killed the girl. Yeah, that makes...
Eric’s Week 21

Eric’s Week 21

No time for intros, let’s talk movies. 141 The Neon Demon I remember seeing the ads for this on Amazon when it first came out. I recalled being interested so I gave it a watch. Visually, this movie is intense. Bright colors and sharp contrasts do well to mimic...
Eric’s Week 20

Eric’s Week 20

Good lord I haven’t slept in days. I mean, I usually run off of somewhere around 5.5 hours a night, but daaaaaaamn I’m sleepy this week. It’s been a hectic time prepping for Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con (formerly Comikaze), and then we also have a...
Tim’s Week Twenty

Tim’s Week Twenty

This was a fun week. Started to stretch myself to keep up with new movies, and found some hidden gems. I highly recommend each and every movie that I saw this week, and I can’t honestly say that about many other weeks.   DAY 134: THE ENDURANCE:...
Eric’s Week Nineteen!

Eric’s Week Nineteen!

133 movies watched. It’s going to get really difficult soon because I’m beginning to exhaust a lot of my options on Netflix and HBO. It’s taking longer and longer to find and select a movie to watch. I probably need to commit several hours to...
Tim’s Week Nineteen

Tim’s Week Nineteen

So the middle of this week focused on sequels that are considered to be inferior to the originals, but since I had never seen any of them, I decided to give them a try. For the most part, yes they suck but I tried to find some redeeming value. While I did some more...
Tyler’s Week 19: Japanese Films!

Tyler’s Week 19: Japanese Films!

Yes. I love Japanese films. Unfortunately, none of these are Akira Kurosowa films because I will be doing a week for his amazing films. These are all live-action and I thoroughly enjoyed this week! Let’s do this!!!

Tim’s Week Eighteen

Tim’s Week Eighteen

A new week with seven movies I have never seen before. I’m going to put forth some honesty: Congratulations to Eric for watching over 100 new movies during the challenge, that’s awesome. I’m around ninety, I think. Don’t really feel like...
Tyler’s Week 18: Spoof Movies

Tyler’s Week 18: Spoof Movies

I love spoof movies and I am happy for this week. Unfortunately, most of these movies I have seen prior, but I know they are great, so I have that going for me.

Emily’s Week 18 Old Vs New Part 3

Week #18   1. Pride and Prejudice 1995 Watched for days 1-3 Mr. Darcy. Most girls say he is a dreamboat. Me, I personally prefer Mr. Knightly from the movie Emma (I’ll watch that another day.) But Colin Firth is a very handsome man and his classic acting...
Eric’s Week 18

Eric’s Week 18

126 movies so far. I got curious and decided to make a tally of how many new movies I’ve watched so far as a part of this challenge. Since we began this challenge, I’ve seen 102 films for the first time. Not all of them have been awesome, many of them...

Emily’s Week 17 Old Vs New Part 2

Week #17   1. Grease 1978 I have never watched this movie all the way through. I’m glad I have now because this is CLASSIC. Fun songs, great characters, a nice story. Love this movie. And Jon Travolta, oh wow. He is amazing! 2. Grease LIVE 2016 Alright you...
Tim’s Week Seventeen

Tim’s Week Seventeen

Only 246 movies to go. Crap. That sounds awful. This week was all about whatever was readily accessible. That being said, there are several movies on here by a few of my favorite filmmakers that haven’t made the challenge yet, including the Coen Brothers and...
Eric’s Week 17

Eric’s Week 17

Another week, 7 more movies. I really need to start putting some forethought into my movie selections, it’s hard being this all over the place. I saw this movie years ago, but admit that I’d forgotten most of it. I wanted to watch it again because Jon...
Tim’s Week Sixteen

Tim’s Week Sixteen

The past couple weeks have been stressful. Has nothing to do with this challenge. Sure, there are some nights I’d rather be watching Luke Cage or the new HBO show Westworld, but I can’t really fault the challenge. I’m the idiot who agreed to do it....

Emily’s Week 16 Old Vs New Part 1

  Week #16   1. Red Dawn 1984 This is one of my favorite 80’s action movies. Patrick Swayze, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, many of my favorite actors delivering some amazing acting. 2. Red Dawn 2012   Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, and...
Eric’s Week…what week is this?

Eric’s Week…what week is this?

Seriously, I have no idea how many movies this makes or even what week we’re on. I really do like this challenge, but dammit it’s costing me sleep. Maybe I’ll arrange a parlay with Tim about missing a day together… Anyway…here’s...
Emily’s Movies for Week 15

Emily’s Movies for Week 15

This week I thought I’d dive into a hobby of mine. Food. But not just any food, the creative, expensive, tiny, weird food. Let me take you on a journey with my favorite things to learn about food. One thing I will talk about over and over is the Michelin Guide....
Tim’s Week Fifteen

Tim’s Week Fifteen

DAY NINETY-NINE: THE COLOR OF MONEY (1986) The sequel to last week’s stand out, The Hustler (1961). In this, Fast Eddie Felson hasn’t touched a poolstick in years, but he’s still hustling as a liquor salesman. That’s when he meets Tom...
