Rambo (2008)
[#5 in 100 Films in a Year 2019]

this week on 100 Films

It was all about finished 2018 and belatedly starting 2019 this week at 100 Films in a Year.

Firstly, I finished off last year by listing my best & worst films I saw in 2018...

Then, 2019's goal got underway with two lists of 12 films I must watch this year...

What Do You Mean You Haven’t Seen…? 2019
A new year, a new challenge… or, rather, an old challenge with new components. Yes, for a seventh year I’m setting myself the goal of watching 12 specific films I really should have seen but haven’t... WDYMYHS is selected by analysing lists of great and/or popular movies to try to determine a consensus view of what I’m a fool to have missed.

Blindspot 2019
12 films I should’ve seen but haven’t that I must watch this year — and, because I’m doing both WDYMYHS and Blindspot, that’s 24 films I must watch... Blindspot choices are simply personally selected from my DVD/Blu-ray collection. Nonetheless, I do try to add a bit of variety to the mix, with different countries, genres, and eras represented.

Finally, there was even 1 new review...

Zatoichi's Cane Sword (1967)
Anyone who watches and enjoys the Zatoichi series is bound to end up with their own particular favourites, for whatever reason. Cane Sword particularly clicked for the writers at The Digital Bits; for me, it's been other films... Either way, Cane Sword is another very good entry in a series which is, fortunately, full of them.

Regular business resumes next Sunday.
