The 2015 Blind Spot Series

Inspired by both The Matinee and Film Flare I will making own BLIND SPOT series list for 2015.

A few days late is better than never. There more than a few classics missing from my 'watched' list I'm sorry to say but being part of the Blind Spot is going to be excited.

Unfortunately, most of the classics that I haven't seen (in this list) are mostly American, 2 British, 1 Italian, 1 Japanese, half in colour, half in black and white, spanning decades from 1931 to 1998.

It's one film per month, with a post about the film, watch this space film fans, for more on the classics.

1. Chinatown
2. Double Indemnity 
3. All About Eve
4. Casablanca
5. North by Northwest
6. City Lights
7. Cinema Paradiso
8. Touch of Evil
9. Yojimbo
10. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
11. Kind Hearts and Coronets
12. The Player


  1. My-oh-my are you in for a good year! Some of my all-time favorites are in amongst your selections for 2015. Good luck with it, the hard part is always the writing...but at the very least, you'll be trying new things in this new year

  2. To be fair I've only seen four of these. You're in for some good stuff, love Casablanca :) X

  3. I'm missing most of those, too. My favourites are All About Eve and North by Northwest (I'm kind of obsessed with Cary Grant and Hitch...). I hope you like them!

  4. Which ones are your favourite? It's quite bad, most of the classics I haven't seen are gangster films, but I tried to make a varied list. I agree, when writing, sometimes a film is just beyond words, sounds cliche but its true!

  5. I'm still surprised I haven't seen Casablanca yet despite studying films all these years. But its on the list so it will be watched! x

  6. I also have a bit of Hitchcock obsession. I must watch Rear Window every month at some point. I got a box set of Hitchcock films for Christmas a few years back now and I went through it film by film. I was savoring them as I thought 15 just wasn't enough. The only one I didn't concentrate on was Topaz. Can't wait to finally watch North by Northwest.
