100 Must See Cult Movies

For Christmas I received this incredible Scratch poster which has 100 Must See Cult Movies on it, super exciting to see how many I have already seen and then scratching off the silver to reveal the unique image related to that film.

I have only seen 34 out of the 100

So you have guessed it this is going to be combined as my blindspot challenge as well as a new feature for 2020 (and probably beyond). Catching up with these films regarded as cult classics!

Top 10 – Films I Caught Up With In 2013

Back for the second year looking at the top 10 films I am now pleased to add to my watched list. It may surprise you that some of the films on this list I only watched for the first time EVER in 2013! Some are those that I may have just caught up with from recent years thanks to Netflix having some hidden gems of films which may not have been out long at the cinema.

They aren’t actually listed in any particular order in terms of quality of the film, just picked a top 10 out of how ever many new films I watched over the year. Some may have been missed if I didn’t review them on the blog. But that is part of the reason for blogging reviews to keep track of the films I have watched. You will find a few words to go with each film and also a link to the full review from after I watched the film!

Breaking Emotions Blogathon – HATE & LOVE

Unwatched DVDs

For quite a few years now I have had problems buying DVDs of films which I have never seen before. These films may have one of my favorite actors in, won a lot of awards (mainly Oscar’s), I had heard a lot about the film or I missed it at the cinema. This is made more difficult when HMV, Asda and play.com all start selling DVDs for £2 or £3.

This morning I decided to have a look and see how many of my DVDs that I have not ever watched . . . just the ones that I have never seen the film either. I have 30 of these DVDs and my plan is to watch them over the next few months. I probably have tried to watch a couple of them before but other than that they are films that I have never got round to seeing.

I have decided that I am not going to buy any more DVDs of the films I have not yet seen until I start watching some of these which are just sitting around. That may encourage me to watch these a little faster.

Here is the 30 long list of films I plan on watching over the next few months . . . or maybe longer I am not going to put a timescale on it but they are now top of my to see list. Why not? I have them ready to watch whenever I want.
