What better way to end the year 2018 than with my last Blindspot entry?! I think it’s the most fitting end, as it also reflects my year quite well. There were a few bad things, some ugly things, but it was mostly good! Plus, your girl here finished her first Blindspot year with flying colours. […]
Blindspot 2018, November: The Graduate
When I sat down to watch The Graduate, I only knew its famous last scene where the characters drive off in a bus, looking sad and defeated. There wasn’t even a moment where I thought this is the movie with the famous “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me!” quote!! Like, this is where the […]
BLINDSPOT 2018, OCTOBER: BOOGIE NIGHTS
RIP Burt Reynolds It’s a bitter coincidence that my 2018 Blindspot October pick happens to include one of Burt Reynolds’ famous roles. Reynolds, who died a little over a month ago, was a film legend in his own right. My first Boogie Nights experience was definitely affected by seeing this man on screen so soon […]
BLINDSPOT 2018, SEPTEMBER: CASABLANCA
This year, I had two movies that I thought to be bigger challenges for me than others. For September, I watched one of those movies, and turns out, my 2018 Blindspot, has only one truly challenging movie. And it ain’t Casablanca.
BLINDSPOT 2018, AUGUST: TAXI DRIVER
It’s too early to say, since I have four movies to go, but I think Taxi Driver is my favourite Blindspot pick of this year. Better than 2001: A Space Odyssey, better than the Before trilogy, and yes, a little better than The Shining. With Taxi Driver I felt more at ease, and more pleased […]
BLINDSPOT 2018, JULY: A CLOCKWORK ORANGE
The third and final Stanley Kubrick film in my Blindspot list this year is his 1971 feature film A Clockwork Orange. Based on a novel by the same name, written by Anthony Burgess, this movie explores a futuristic world. In its center is a sadistic gang, lead by Alex, going around tormenting people.
Blindspot 2018, June: Brick
The reason I added this 2005 film to my Blindspot list was simple. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and have seen most of his films. With that in mind, I set myself a goal to watch his lesser known film Brick. The fact that it’s also the directorial debut for Rian Johnson, was simply a coincidence. […]
Blindspot 2018, May: Goodfellas
Every time I sit down to write about my Blindspot pick, I get this writer’s block thing. It’s like, I’m scared to speak my mind about these well loved movies without sounding like an idiot. Because most of these movies in my Blindspot list are very much adored by bloggers and regular movie lovers. This […]
Blindspot 2018, April: The Shining
That’s right, I had not seen The Shining before last week and I’m okay with that. Because only in recent years have I started to appreciate horror, and its genre for something other than jump scares and blood splatters. So it seems that it was just the right time for me, to finally watch The […]
Blindspot 2018, March: Blue Is the Warmest Colour
For my March Blindspot series pick I chose something recent to shake things up. Blue Is the Warmest Colour is a French movie from 2013, which won big at the Cannes’ film festival and made waves in the blogging community.
