Decades Blogathon Banner

Spots have been filling up fast for a new blogathon being hosted by myself and Tom from Digital Shortbread… but there’s still time to get involved before they all go!

The response to our call for contributors to the ‘Decades’ blogathon has been fanastic and it’s already promising to be a great event. We have a couple of spots left so be quick!

The blogathon focuses on movies that were released in the fifth year of the decade – whether that be 1985, 1935, 1945 or any other decade.

So far, the following discerning writers have confirmed that they will be joining Tom and I in this endeavour:

The Cinematic FrontierPee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985)
Ramblings of a CinephileLa Haine (1995)
Drew’s Movie ReviewsTommy Boy (1995)

On top of these guys, Tom will be reviewing Batman Begins (2005), while I’ll be having a stab at Back To The Future (1985).

We’re looking to run the blogathon from Monday, 18 May. If you’d like to get involved then please drop me an email at threerowsback@gmail.com or email Tom at tomlittle2011@gmail.com letting us know which film you’d like to cover or for more info.

  1. It’s a great idea, and I’d love to take part, but I’m not sure where to start looking for choices that haven’t been taken or which I haven’t already written about.

    Hi Tom/Mark, can I do one from 1995? If you don’t take anymore entries, that’s fine, great blogathon idea nonetheless 😀

      Actually sorry, that date won’t work for me as I’ll be on vacation for a week next week and taking some blog break. But I’ll be checking out people’s reviews. Great stuff guys!
