We were so excited to be joining in with the Blind Spot Series in 2015! We watched 7 of our chosen movies from January to July, and then August hit us, I disappeared for a few weeks and Jenna and I barely saw each other between then and Christmas! So very sadly we fell so far behind we decided to call it quits for the year. I don't even know what happened, we missed one and then it was December!
But we’re back again in 2016 more excited than ever, and we’ve transferred the remaining 2015 movies to our list for this year. We are determined to do the whole 12 months this year and watch all 12 films, 2015 didn't start off so great with me missing the first two movies! We’ve got an even split of choices now, and some we’ll watch together, others apart but we’ll still review them together like we do with most of our posts.
Just like last year, it’s fairly embarrassing to admit that we haven’t seen some of these movies before, especially as he rapidly approach the 2 year anniversary of running this blog, but hey, better late than never, right?! At least when the blogging community turns against us for being frauds, we'll still have each other. Yet another bonus of co-blogging :-)
If you're new to the series, it's ran by Ryan McNeil at The Matinee, and this year marks 5 years of Blind Spots! Check out his 2016 page here to find out how to take part.
Here’s our list, in no particular order:
On the Waterfront (1954)
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
Life is Beautiful (1997)
Terminator 2 (1991)
Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)
Mary and Max (2009)
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
We’ll link up our reviews to this post as we go along, and I think after very recently watching Creed, we’ll kick January off with Rocky! Maybe we should start with Rocky Balboa and work backwards seen as we've started at the end!
