BLINDSPOT 2018, OCTOBER: BOOGIE NIGHTS

Blindspot

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 after his passing. But the movie also features Phillip Seymour Hoffman, which simply adds salt to the wounds. Because its Hoffman’s early passing, leaving his…

Blindspot 2018, June: Brick

Blindspot

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. Turns out, adding Brick was like getting hit by a brick.…

So it seems that it was just the right time for me, to finally watch The Shining.…

BlindSpot 2018 Announcment

Mettel Ray

Can’t say this is my first time announcing my participation in the Blind Spot series created by Ryan over at The Matinee. Back in 2014 I found this and thought, here is something I should do, and I stuck with it for two months. Yes, I was that successful! But I did have a guest appearance in Ryan’s podcast which was one of the first cool things I did back then! Well, I’m giving it another go and hopefully, 2018 is…

Blind Spot #1 (BOT)

Extra Movie

  Blind Spot series also goes hand in hand with my Back on Track feature. Ryan over at The Matinee is hosting a great feature that pushes bloggers like me to watch movies we have heard a lot about but haven’t seen yet. The idea is to select 12 movies (mine are listed in the sidebar), watch a movie for the first time each month for a full year and post about it every month. But I have chosen to…
