These past couple of years I have watched many fellow film bloggers participate in the Blind Spot Series, a web event promoted by The Matinee that encourages movie viewers to tackle some classics they're still missing. With just a few (but hugely) legendary films left on my ancient List of Shame, I figured 2015 would be a good year to cross twelve classics off of it and get that much closer to the finish line.
And what better way to do it than actually taking part in one of the most useful and clever events of the film blogosphere? The challenge spreads throughout the year, one movie per month, one post per movie. Each Blind Spot will be announced in the first week of each month, and reviewed in the last. To take part simply pick twelve classics you haven't seen, link back to Ryan's blog, and start watching!
