Twelve Classics for 2016

Recently, Kristina of Speakeasy and Andy of Journeys in Darkness and Light both posted their lists of twelve classic films that they plan to watch in 2016 for The Blindspot Series.  I did make a list of ten classics that I wanted to watch in 2015 last year and I only managed to watch four.  So naturally I thought making a list of twelve was a great idea and I decided I would join the challenge.  Hopefully I can stick to the one a month plan and complete this list!  When making my picks I tried to find films that are so classic that I was a little ashamed that I hadn’t seen them yet.


Here is my list!

  • Night of the Hunter (1955)
  • The Red Shoes (1948)
  • All About Eve (1950)
  • Seven Samurai (1954)
  • 12 Angry Men (1957)
  • Sunrise (1927)
  • Mr. Hulot’s Holiday (1953)
  • Rashomon (1950)
  • The Public Enemy (1931)
  • Psycho (1960)
  • Gilda (1946)
  • The Lady Eve (1941)

Hopefully you won’t judge me too harshly for not having seen these truly classic classics yet!  I’m excited to get into more movies and try to increase my classic film knowledge in 2016.

Here are some other films that I would like to watch this year…
