Since my return to movie blogging last year, I kept seeing Blind Spot challenges popping up every once in a while and I was always curious to see what is about, mostly because it always featured old movies I haven’t seen myself.
After a bit of research (and some Twitter questions) I found out what is it about and I signed up for the 2019 edition, because I love the idea of watching classic movies and number 1 titles that I haven’t gotten around to seeing.
To quote Sofia, who manages the challenge: “The Blind Spot Series is a movie challenge created by Ryan McNeil at The Matinee. The goal is to watch one movie a month, over the course of one year. These should be films that you believe are essential viewings for every movie fan: they can be classics, cult films, modern masterpieces.” More info about it here
That being said, here is my list for the Blind Spot Challenge 2019: in no particular order, inspired by my fellow bloggers and all movies I haven’t watched before.
- Cat on a hot tin roof (1958)
- 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
- The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
- Network (1976)
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
- Seven Samurai (1954)
- Apocalypse Now (1979)
- Sunset Boulevard (1950)
- The Lives of Others (2006)
- Trainspotting (1996)

I’m excited! Are you participating this year? What is on your list?
