Thanks for the quick answers! I've been keeping an eye on both communities but thought I'd start off over
here.

Yes!

1. Post books and films you have not yet registered, if you have any backlog

2. Write about a film you have seen or a book you have read. You can chose whether to do so in English or in
your target language, and you decide how short or long you want to make it.

About my Croatian films, cross-posted from the other forum:

Budva na pjenu od mora is a Montenegrin series that most members learning BCMS have heard about XD All three seasons are legally available on this youtube account. It starts out as somewhat cheesy love story but gets more complex soon :) (Radioclare has already watched all seasons, while JohannaNYC has also joined the club :D)

More recently, I tried out the Montevideo project to test my comprehension of something new and got sidetracked completely. It tells the story of the Yugoslavian (really Serbian) national team preparing and travelling for the first World Cup in Uruguay. There are two films, one taking place in Belgrade and one in Montevideo, and there are longer versions of each film as a series, as well as a third series that serves as a bridge and follows the team's long journey, in a time when you couldn't just hop on the plane. I'm currently watching this series, and I don't think I'll go back to Budva until I'm done. I'm enjoying the pre-WW2 atmosphere and the hot guys :D (hotter than in Budva, for my taste) I'm less keen on the unavoidable femmes fatales, but at least they're pretty and they don't speak about football, taking me out of my comfort zone.
The first film is legally available on Youtube, with optional English subs.

I am so horribly far behind. I started tracking my progress on my own at the end of
June, and worked pretty hard to catch up for two months - and then stalled. To finish
two challenges I'll need to read 97 pages of French & 92 pages of Italian each week, and
watch 60 minutes of French movies (not a problem) and & two hours of Italian movies.

I'm not sure it's possible, so I'll make a hard focus on reading and not worry about the
listening part. It sucks, but it wouldn't be a "super" challenge if it were easy, right?

Awww I know... I'm currently just aiming for at least one star per language, for the audio part. Will also get one reading star in Italian, and hopefully something else too. I'm reading much less this time around, largely because LR no longer counts and I've anyway been reading more stuff that's not available as audiobooks.

However I've read more Danish, Romanian, Spanish than ever and I've allowed myself to read in English and Finnish.

I still have not listed any films since May last year, and no books ( on the other hand I have not really read
any books since May anyhow), so don't you two talk about being far behind :-)
