As you’ll know from reading my Blindspot post, this year I’ve separated these very similar film-watching goals into two separate projects.
So what differentiates my WDYMYHS selection? Well, to mark my 10th blogiversary (did I do that “did I mention this already” joke already?)* I’ve attempted to identify the films from the last ten years that I really should have seen. Rather than my usual loopy array of repurposed lists, however, I just popped on Letterboxd and dug out the “most popular” film I’d not seen from each of the last ten years. I was interested to discover I already own half of them on Blu-ray, have another downloaded and another recorded, and can find the rest on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Now TV — one on each, in fact. I mean, I couldn’t’ve planned that more neatly.
Anyway, these ten films — in chronological order — are:
Into the Wild
Silver Linings Playbook
So that’s 22 films I must watch among this year’s 100. Okay.
Oh, but, one more thing…
