Well, I’m still need to watch two movies on my 2017 Blindspot list, but here are my next pickings. They are as eclectic and all over the place as last year’s list, which I actually enjoyed so much because it had a bit of everything.
Ghostbusters – Time to see exactly how great this is and to get why all the men got so huffy about the all-female cast of the 2017 version, which I also haven’t seen yet.
The Matrix – I am assured I only need to watch the one
Erin Brockovich– I am a huge Julia Roberts fan and I really need to finally see the film she won her Oscar for.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s – For the joy of seeing Audrey Hepburn in her most iconic role
Shutter Island – need I say more? A psychological thriller with Leonardo DiCaprio
Blade Runner – I was really interested to see the 2017 version (hello, Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford), but felt it would not be the best idea to start at the second film.
Revolutionary Road – It is another film with DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, so I am definitely okay with that. #JackAndRose
Jaws – chomp chomp chomp
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – I’ve been threatened with my life if I don’t rectify this apparently appalling crime.
Silence of The Lambs – I’m probably going to tuck my feet safely under blankets with the lights on for this, but I’m game.
Die Hard – I really do enjoy action films and this film seems like one consistently considered a favorite among them
The Curious Life of Benjamin Button – This film was the most frequently almost-replaced-on-here-film, but I am still ready to watch and enjoy and watch a young Brad Pitt.
There are a few I’d almost chosen, listed below, which I would still like to get to. Although since I’m not done with 2017’s list yet, just focusing on finishing the chosen ones seem like a pretty sound decision.
- Ant Man – literally the only Marvel movie I haven’t seen yet in later years
- Good Fellas – because, Pacino.
- The Sixth Sense – this was a close call but the internet has long since spoiled every single scene in this so I’ll just watch it when I can
- The Hateful Eight, because Tarantino. Did not make the list because I’ve heard while it is Tarantino, it isn’t the Tarantino
- American Pie – A bit of lightheartedness to these proceedings, if you will
If you are taking part this year, let me know!
