Jonah Hill on his transition from playing comedies to dramas: “I mean, I love all different kinds of films. I’ve gotten to express myself a lot comedically, and I like doing that. But opportunities like this are the greatest thing in the entire world, and it’s just about playing the character truthfully. There are ridiculous situations in this film that would be the same in a broad comedy.”
It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.

The 365 Films Challenge
Short and Sweet Overview: Watch 365 films in the year 2014.
What Is This Challenge?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to spend the next year delving into the world of film by watching one film that you have never seen before per day.
How Do I Participate?
The extent of how you participate is totally up to you. It is recommended that you post some form of a review, whether it be as simple as a star rating or as extensive as a critical film analysis. Screencaps, graphics and gifs are optional.
When Do We Start?
Like most 365 challenges, the best day to start is January 1st so that you end on December 31st, but you may start whenever you would like.
What If I Can’t Watch A Film Each Day?
No one is monitoring how you reach 365 films, so if you fall behind or watch ahead a few movies, that is your choice.
Here are some other film challenges I recommend if 365 seems a little scary: 100 films in a year, 100 days of film (themed), 250 films meme (themed)
How Am I Going To Find 365 Films To Watch?
