Hey blindspotters, we’re officially back with a new edition of the Blind Spot Series! If this is your first time participating, or have never heard of this challenge, head on over to the official page to get all the info. In short, this a challenge where movie lovers like you and me decide to watch one great movie a month, for a year. These are classic, cult, or just widely considered to be GOOD movies that we’ve been missing out on, and wish to finally tackle. If this sounds like fun to you, feel free to join us!
This year my picks range from 1929 (Pandora’s Box), to 1977 (That Obscure Object of Desire). While last year I had some let downs with my picks, I’m fairly confident I’ll like all the films I chose this year. Theres’s a couple of great pre-codes, some Bette Davis, a mean Burt Lancaster, some Kirk Douglas (he really wowed me in Paths of Glory), even a bit of Rock Hudson because I really haven’t seen enough from him.
There’s a Natalie Wood + Elia Kazan pairing, the classic My Fair Lady (no, I haven’t seen it yet! 🙈), plus what I expect will be the perfect duo (Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum?!), and two modern classics from the 70s, directed by Coppola and Buñuel. The only thing really missing is a Cary Grant movie, but then I guess I’ve already seen all his good ones, oops.
