Birth Year Challenge

For this challenge you can only pick films that were released in the year you were born (I'm going with Letterboxd dates to avoid UK/US release date confusion), the total amount of films to watch is the same as your current age.

There is no time limit on the challenge, only to watch all the films before your next Birthday, or you'll have to add another film!

All the films have to be first time watches.

Track the tag #BYC to read everyone's reviews.

PROGRESS: 19/39

All movies I've seen from 1980.
All movies from 1980 still on my watchlist.

I've tried to pick a cross section of films, those that were nominated for awards, those classed as video nasties…
