'I have undertaken a challenge to watch a film from as many countries as possible in 180 days (6 months).
I know the challenge ended in October but I thought I would round off the year with this final tally. I watched 21 films from around the world (but really 19 as UK and USA don't count). I did have a few more lined up and some that I did watch after the deadline but to be fair to the challenge the final tally in October was 21.
I am going to set myself another challenge for 2013 so watch this space!
