Blind Spot 2014


Little late to the party but nevertheless, ready to embark on this cinematic journey. Originally I started my own thing, by watching 10 new films each month…That didn’t work out too well due to an immense amount of college work. Well to begin, I wanted to partake in the Blind Spot after I fully understood what it was, and by reading some great reviews from Courtney Small over at Cinemaaxis.

Essentially the Blind Spot is to view a film that you have not seen every month for a whole year, and afterwards write a review or your thoughts on the film. The whole idea is to ensure that you will watch the films listed. I created a list of films that I’ve been meaning to watch or far too hesitant to commit to watching. Lastly since I missed the first two months, I’m only going to watch films for the remaining months which would result in 10 films total. My aim is to post a review on the last week of each month.
