Memory, Assassins and...Felony?

It's the end of the year, and here I am with a stack of DVDs and another challenge complete! I've really been racing the clock to get some extra ones squeezed in at the end of this year, though this particular challenge wasn't too difficult to get finished. Christmas is definitely the time of year for kicking back with a movie or two, and there have been a lot on TV lately as well!

So here are films 91-100, completing my goal!

91. The Bourne Identity (2002)
Genre: Action/Thriller/Mystery
In a Word: Amnesia
In a Sentence: Rescued from the sea and suffering from amnesia, a man finds himself pursued by assassins as he seeks to uncover his past, and his identity.
Recommended: If you like your thrillers on the mysterious side.

92. The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
Genre: Action/Thriller/Mystery
In a Word: Evade
In a Sentence: Framed for an attack against a CIA operation and chased by assassins once more, Jason Bourne puts his skills to the test as he seeks out those responsible--and uncovers some lost memories in the process
Recommended: If you enjoyed the first one!

93. Carry on Camping (1969)
Genre: Comedy
In a Word: Tents
In a Sentence: Sid and Bernie take their girlfriends camping, with somewhat amorous intentions, but keep getting snubbed--then a coach-party of misbehaved schoolgirls appear...
Recommended: For anyone who enjoys the cheesy brand of comedy delivered by the Carry On folks.

94. The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
Genre: Action/Thriller/Mystery
In a Word: Return
In a Sentence: Set immediately after The Bourne Supremacy, Jason Bourne is on the run from assassins yet again, as he comes closer to uncovering his past than ever before.
Recommended: If you enjoyed the previous two films? (I probably enjoyed this one the best)

95. Paycheck (2003)
Genre: Action/Mystery/Sci-Fi
In a Word: Memory
In a Sentence: After working several top-secret projects that all end in his memory being wiped, whiz-kid Michael Jennings joins a three-year project that ought to net him millions--but when his time is up and the memory wipe is done, he discovers he's waived his right to be paid, and only has an envelope of random objects to his name.
Recommended: For those that like guessing what is going to happen (but being kept on tenterhooks anyway).

96. Transcendence
Genre: Drama/Sci-Fi
In a Word: Uploaded
In a Sentence: A genius scientist's consciousness is uploaded into AI software, but once the software is online and connected to the internet, his wife begins to question whether it really is him.
Recommended: If you like films that are a little creepy and malevolent, and ask some important questions, with a lot of answers not being revealed until the very last minute.

97. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie
Genre: Comedy
In a Word: Splash
In a Sentence: After knocking the now-missing Kate Moss into the river Thames, Edina Monsoon becomes the most hated person on the planet, and runs away to Cannes with her best friend Patsy in the hope of gaining access to money.

98. The Boss (2016)
Genre: Comedy
In a Word: Brownies
In a Sentence: After a fortune 500 boss does a stint in prison for insider trading, she emerges to find herself bereft of friend and fortune, but then comes up with a plan to rebrand herself at the helm of a homemade brownie empire.

99. Identity Thief (2013)
Genre: Comedy/Crime
In a Word: Felony
In a Sentence: When quiet businessman Sandy Patterson discovers he's been the victim of identity theft, he travels from Denver to Florida to track down the woman responsible and bring her to justice, but gets a lot more than he bargained for.
Recommended: If you like being surprised by the way a plot turns (and enjoy laughing at ridiculous scenes!)

100. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Genre: Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi
In a Word: Compromised
In a Sentence: After a S.H.I.E.L.D. mission, Captain America finds himself on the wrong side of the organisation, and alongside Black Widow has to figure out what's going on, save the world, and defeat the assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
Recommended: If you enjoyed the previous Captain America and Avengers movies, and felt there was scope for a lot more storyline to be had after Captain America: The First Avenger.

Well, that's another goal completed from The List:
061. Watch 100 films
It's taken me quite some time to get this one finished--I started in 2014!
