Blind Spot Series 2014

I recently stumbled upon Ryan McNeil's site, where he was running a feature called Blind Spot. It's basically listing down 12 films you must see that year, one for each month. I thought it was a great and challenging idea, considering that I barely write much reviews. Also, despite being a fan of motion pictures, I haven't seen a lot of movies. This is a great way to expand my movie horizon, and to finally watch some classics I've been meaning to see. Here is my list, and I hope I get to accomplish this by next year! I'll be updating this as I post my reviews, so feel free to check back once in a while!

  1. Thanks again for dropping by my humble soapbox - hope you'll make a habit of it!
    As for the titles you've selected, I've seen them all, and let me assure you that you're in for a very good year.

    Happy New Year - and best of luck scratching off all twelve!

  2. Awesome list! I've seen them all, and you are in for a treat! I can't wait to see everyone's reviews this year. My favorite from that list is E.T. and my least favorite is Rear Window, but I'm in the minority when it comes to that film (I just found it dull).

  3. Oh, some wonderful picks here - Pulp Fiction is in my top 5, I'm sure you will love the film.

  4. This is quite a list of amazing films! I've seen all but Carrie, which should probably be on a blind spots list for me. It's cool to see His Girl Friday in there among the giants. That's such a funny screwball comedy!

  5. Very cool! I've only seen 6 from your list. Oh you're in for a treat w/ Roman Holiday, that's one of my all time fave classic films. My friend just gave me Rear Window and Vertigo to watch, so I'm looking forward to that. Great mix of contemporary and classic films!

  7. I love Roman Holiday, you should see it. Maybe in February? Memento is excellent as well. Carrie was legendary. Great list!

    1. I'm still contemplating on seeing Roman Holiday or Casablanca this month - still haven't made up my mind! I'm hoping I do like Memento, and I'm excited to see Carrie as well.

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
