Blind Spot Series 2018

Here we are, another year, and because I have enjoyed doing this so much, I am going to do another Blind Spot list for 2018 – you know, we all have those movies that we are forever intending to get to and just never do.

    Before Sunrise: Great
    Eastern Promises: Good
    Sixteen Candles: Meh
    Stranger Than Fiction: Haven’t seen
    This Is Spinal Tap: Great, though may take a particular sense of humour
    Miracle: Good
    Anchorman: Fine, wasn’t as big a fan as most seem to be
    Straight Outta Compton: haven’t seen!


  2. Oooh there’s a good few movies here I want to see myself!
    Can’t wait to see your thoughts on The Goonies. I only watched it for the first time a couple of years ago and don’t really understand the hype, but I know it’s a lot of people favourite childhood movie ever!
