Ultimate Decades Blogathon 2021 Conclusion

Hello, friends!

I hope you enjoyed the new format of the blogathon. While Kim and I had fun looking at everyone’s picks for their favorite films from a spotlight decade, we wanted to shake things up a big after covering 50 years of film. Switching to a format that spans decades opens up for many more possibilities. Our participants did not disappoint! We had films reviewed that were released just one decade ago all the way up to 10 decades ago! Here is the full list of participants and entries for the sixth annual Ultimate Decades Blogathon:

Drew’s Movie Reviews – Bridesmaids (2011)

Tranquil Dreams – Spirited Away (2001)

 Plain, Simple Tom Reviews – The Kid (1921)

MovieRob – The Maltese Falcon (1931)

Movies and TeaThe Devil’s Backbone (2001)

18 Cinema LaneThe Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971)

Often Off Topic – Through the Decades (1971 – 2011)

Starry Traveler’s RoadShrek (2001)

Tranquil Dreams – Fight Back to School (1991)

Drew’s Movie Reviews – The Cannonball Run (1981)

Apparently 2001 is popular amongst our participants! I encourage you to read any of the posts you missed. They were truly some great entries this year. Before we officially conclude, here’s a few words from my co-host:

In a blink of an eye, the sixth annual Ultimate Decades Blogathon has come to end! This year was pretty special for us as we took the step to change up the format from the previous one which opened up a variety of choices through the decades which also triggers some interesting entries surprisingly spanning back to the 1920s and 1930s, decades that are rather unfamiliar for myself. With that said, a huge thank you to all of the participants and their wonderful reviews as well as anyone who dropped by to read, commented and liked the posts as well as a big thank you for my awesome co-host Drew. Its always a ton of fun to do the blogathon and hopefully next year, we will see you all again for another blogathon hosted by myself and Drew. Finally, in these crazy times, take care and stay safe!

With those words, the Ultimate Decades Blogathon 2021 has officially concluded! Thanks again to all of the participants and your enthusiasm. This blogathon is always a blast to put together and see what you all come up with. Another thank you to Kim, you are such a wonderful co-host and I thank you for working with me every year to put this together. And finally, a thank you to all you readers. There wouldn’t be a blogathon without people to enjoy the content. Hopefully you found a new blog or two to follow.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay positive. Stay weird.

Until next time, cheers!

Announcing the Ultimate Decades Blogathon 2021

Hello, friends!

I hope you are well. It’s the start of a new year, which means the Ultimate Decades Blogathon is just around the corner! Not even a pandemic can stop the blogathon hosted by Kim, aka Tranquil Dreams, and me annually. If you’ve been following previous Ultimate Decades Blogathons, you’ll know that they’ve covered the 70s, 80s, 90, 00s, and 10s. This year, Kim and I have decided to change the format slightly for our sixth outing hosting the blogathon. Rather than focusing on a specific decade like previous years, this year’s Ultimate Decades Blogathon will instead focus on films released in years that end in “1.” For example, 2011, 2001, 1991, etc.

If this format sounds familiar, it’s because the Decades Blogathon that was hosted by Tom and Three Rows Back for several years followed this same theme. With Tom’s blessing, Kim and I have adopted the theme for our blogathon. After five great years with the previous theme, we were looking for ways to add a fresh twist to our annual blogathon.

Kim and I would love to see you participate in this blogathon. If you are interested in participating here are the details:

  • Choose and review a movie (or movies) that was released in a year that ends in “1”
  • Tell us in a comment or via email your selection(s) for the blogathon
  • Email your entry to Kim, kim.tranquildreams@gmail.com, and/or me, drewt510@gmail.com to submit it for the blogathon
  • Submit your entry before Monday, February 15th. However, if you need more time, please let us know so we can plan accordingly.
  • The entries will be posted on our sites. If you wish to post your entry on your site as well, please tell us and we can coordinate that together.
  • The blogathon will begin on Monday, February 22nd

You can add the banner that is at the top of this page to your site to show your participation. And the more the merrier! Feel free to invite others to join the blogathon as well. Use the tag #UltimateDecadesBlogathon on Twitter to help us promote the blogathon. We can’t wait to see everyone’s submissions. 🙂

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay positive. Stay weird.

Until next time, cheers!

Guess what time it is. It’s Christmas in July time!

I’m sure many of you know by now how this works but for those of you who don’t here are the details: send me a Christmas-themed article for your entry. That’s really it.

Ultimate 2010s Blogathon Conclusion

Hello, friends!

Welcome to the end of the fifth annual Ultimate Decades Blogathon! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the decade we just said goodbye to than looking back at all the great and varied films that were released during it. It has been a blast hosting this blogathon with Kim from Tranquil Dreams and reading everyone’s reviews of their ultimate 2010 film. If you missed any of the entries, here they are:

Tranquil Dreams – Wandering Earth (流浪地球)

Drew’s Movie Reviews – Eighth Grade

John ReiberTrain to Busan

Definitely go back and check out any of the entries that you might have missed. There has been a fantastic variety of films reviewed so kudos to our participants for reviewing films that might not have been mainstream. Kim and I enjoyed reading and sharing these entries. Speaking of Kim, here are some final words from her about the blogathon:

In a flash, this year’s blogathon has come to an end. We went through a good part of the decade that we just left behind having selections from most of the years (except for 2011 and 2014). 2010s gave us a lot of great movies and we’ve had a very diverse and international selection which highlights the changes in the past decade opening up the different varieties of movies that are more widely available around the world. Plus, there are also a lot of unique choices as well as some more mainstream picks. Its been a great blogathon celebrating the 2010s. I’d like to give a huge thanks to every one of our guests as well as anyone who dropped by to check out the reviews, liked, commented and shared our posts. Its greatly appreciated and hopefully, we will see all of you next year again for no doubt another blogathon hosted by myself and Drew.

And that’s it! The Ultimate 2010s Blogathon is official wrapped up. Once again, thank you to all of our participants for sending in reviews for the blogathon. And another thank you to my co-host Kim. Always a pleasure working with you to make these annual blogathons happen. And a final thank you to anyone who read, liked, or commented on any of these articles. Your support and participation is greatly appreciated. And hopefully you might have found a new blog or two to follow.

Until next time, cheers!

The fan favorite Christmas in July blogathon returns!

Allie’s actual reaction right now

Many of the participants are always telling me how much they enjoy this blogathon so it’s back by popular demand. The rules are simple: send me a Christmas-themed article for your entry. That’s really it. It can be a movie review, television special review, a list of some kind, or just about anything, as long as it relates to Christmas or the holiday season. Please have your entries sent to me by Sunday, July 14th. If you feel like you need more time, please let me know and we can work something out.

As my seasoned readers know, there is one more element to be included with your entry. At the end of the blogathon, Drew’s Movie Reviews will hold a holiday party, and it is up to the participants to provide the guest list. When you send me your entry, either as part of the email or as part of your entry, include a celebrity you would like to invite to the party, particularly someone you would like to meet under the mistletoe. For example, I would invite Gal Gadot and maybe you would invite Michael B. Jordan.

To let me know you are participating, leave a comment or send me an email at drewt510@gmail.com. Then send your entry to that email address by July 14th.  I can’t wait to see your entries!
