Blogathon Announcement – ‘Decades’

Decades Blogathon Banner

Tom from the second-to-none Digital Shortbread and I are jointly hosting a brand spanking new blogathon… but it can only be great if you join us!

We’re already halfway through the 2010s and we thought it would be a good time to run a blogathon focusing on movies that were released in the fifth year of the decade.

We’re calling it – originally enough – the ‘Decades’ blogathon.

Is there a film you’ve always wanted to review that was released in 1995, 1945, 1975 or the fifth year of any other decade? If so, then we’d love you to get involved. Hell, go back to 1905 if you like (I’ve already got dibs on 1985’s Back To The Future, though, sorry)!



These blogathons are only as good as the entries they receive, so we’re looking forward to receiving some fantastic contributions.

Night Of The Hunter

Night Of The Hunter

So what’ll it be? Michael Mann’s Heat from 1995? Steven Spielberg’s 1975 classic Jaws? The unforgettable Night Of The Hunter from 1955? The choices are huge!

We’re hoping to run the blogathon from Monday, 18 May. We’re keeping the number of entries limited to about 15 or so to stop it getting too unwieldy, so please make sure to get in touch ASAP to avoid disappointment by either dropping me an email at or emailing Tom at letting us know which film you’d like to cover (just so we don’t get duplicate posts) or for more info.

We’re both really excited to receiving your posts for what we’re hoping will be a diverse and absorbing blogathon. Thanks for reading and we hope to hear from you soon! Most importantly, though, GET INVOLVED!

    Oh, what fun! I really love 1995. Do I have to choose only one? Can I pick a couple of my favorites from 1995? Or do you only want one?

      Hi Cindy. Only one I’m afraid so it leaves room for others. Get back to us ASAP though as we’ve already had a few takers.

      • Tom · April 30, 2015

        Good call Mark, I was actually not sure how you wanted to do that. But yes, I guess one apiece makes sense to maximize number of participants! Can’t wait for your entry, Cindy! 🙂

      • Cindy Bruchman · April 30, 2015

        Can I have 1975, Barry Lyndon?

      • Three Rows Back · April 30, 2015

        Of course Cindy. Do you mind dropping myself and Tom an email to that effect so we can keep a record of numbers please?

      Sounds good man. Look forward.

      • le0pard13 · April 30, 2015

        If it’s not taken, Mark/Tom, could you put me down for the Hal Ashby-Robert Towne work, SHAMPOO (1975)?

      • Three Rows Back · April 30, 2015

        No worries mate. Do you mind sending us both an email saying as much, just so we can keep on top of who is involved? Thanks very much 🙂

      • le0pard13 · April 30, 2015

        I’ve gone and done that. Thanks.

      • Three Rows Back · May 1, 2015

        Got it. Gladys have you aboard buddy.

      • Tom · April 30, 2015

  7. Tom · April 30, 2015

    Before anyone else claims it, and I can’t believe they haven’t — I choose Nolan’s Batman Begins (2005)!!! 😀 😀

  8. fernandorafael · May 1, 2015

    Awesome! Like I said to Tom, definitely count me in. Should write any of you guys soon to let you know which film I’ll be reviewing! Cheers!

    Hey gents. I’d have participated but I’ve got a busy week or two. Sorry about that, but I will be reading, naturally!
