Blind Spot Series: 2019 Edition!

Blind Spot Series 2019

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.

    I’ve seen five of these films. I hope you enjoy these films. One of which was a Blind Spot I did back in 2014 I think in Pandora’s Box.

    Oh I love the banners! I just replaced the two Blind Spot posts I have scheduled with them.

    I haven’t seen any of your list this year, but I have seen Splendor in the Grass on stage. I hope you love them all!

    You’ve added some really awesome movies to your list this year (especially Shanghai Express, Splendor In the Grass, and Cape Fear). I’m conflicted when it comes to Pandora’s Box. I know it’s a revered classic but I’ve tried to watch it several times before and it just never held my attention. I’d always find myself zoning out after about 30 min, so I’m curious to see what you think of it.

    Wow, this could be my list since I haven’t seen any of these. Hopefully, they’re all good ones. That said, none of these are actually on my list, but yes, I am back for another year!

    I admire you guys doing it so much! I can never find the discipline to watch one classic movie a month

    I definitely plan to participate this year though I haven’t done a list yet. It’s such a great excuse to finally watch these movies! I hope everyone enjoys their picks!
