Apologies for the radio silence for the last week or so, but I’ve just been taking the time to enjoy the Christmas break, as well as deal with a lot of illnesses (and a broken TV!) in the family. I’ve spent some time planning for 2019 and part of that includes taking part in the Blind Spot challenge, created originally by Ryan at The Matinee and now hosted by Sofia at Returning Videotapes.
I’ve tried a couple of years to take part but always fell behind around Spring. I think it’s because I picked movies that although deemed classic, amazing, must-see, etc – they weren’t movies that really interested me, so it was really hard to find the drive to give up an evening for them.
This year I’ve been more realistic about what I think I would actually like to watch, and so without further ado, here are my choices for 2019:
JANUARY – Oldboy (2003)
FEBRUARY – Rear Window (1954)
MARCH – Saving Private Ryan (1998)
APRIL – Heat (1995)
MAY – The Matrix (1999)
JUNE – Gladiator (2000)
JULY – American Beauty (1999)
AUGUST – Chicago (2002)
SEPTEMBER – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
OCTOBER – The Shining (1980)
NOVEMBER – Million Dollar Baby (2004)
DECEMBER – Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
Wish me luck! I’ll update this post with links as and when my reviews are up, and I’ll probably pin the post to the menu of my blog for easy viewing.
