My friends over at Cinema Parrot Disco and Keith and the Movies have introduced me to the Blindspot series. This is where as bloggers we fess up to 12 movies we haven’t seen that are considered classics. Then we watch one of those movies each month for the year. I have decided to participate this year and these are my 12 choices. Let me know what you think of all of these films.
January- Blade Runner
I’m actually going to see it on the big screen in a rerelease. Ridley Scott’s dystopian futuristic film is a classic I can’t wait to see!
Another anime to cross off my list. This futuristic anime is about a Motoko Kusanagi tracking down a hacker known as the Puppet Master. It should be interesting to watch with the live action version coming in March
Yes, I haven’t seen the 3rd in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. The truth is I’m not that big a fan of Batman movies and didn’t love Dark Knight as much as most people. In honor of Batman v Superman will give the trilogy another go and finally watch the 3rd offering.
One of few Barbara Streisand films I haven’t seen and April seems like a good fit for this film.
I want to have some laughs during the series so let’s enjoy Steve Martin being The Jerk!
Another Studio Ghibli to cross off the Must See list. This is one of Hayao Miyazaki’s first films and I look forward to seeing it.
Directed by Pedro Almodovar Talk to Her is the stirring story of 2 men who become friends when their significant others are in comas. It’s a foreign film I’ve had on Must See List for some time
Another Studio Ghibli to cross off the list. This one looks very fun and different. I mean a pilot pig. How can you go wrong with that!
The debut film by Francois Truffaut is a must see for any cinemaphile, so I look forward to watching it. It’s about a boy in France who is unhappy and causing all kinds of trouble.
Let’s give a ‘good’ M Night Shyamalan movie a shot. I’ve heard Unbreakable is a terrific superhero/thriller movie and I will have an open mind. I do like Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense and think Signs is well made.
To get ready for Rian Johnson’s helming of Star Wars Episode 8 I will watch his time travel film Looper. I love time travel movies and Joseph Gordon-Leavitt is one of my favorite actors. Bruce Willis I am more hit and miss on but he can be very good.
Just in time for Christmas let’s join Denis Leary, Judy Davis, and Kevin Spacey in The Ref. Evidently Leary is a thief who ends up ‘refereeing’ in Spacey and Davis’ marriage.
