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

Box Office Buzz – Star Wars: The Force Awakens

18 Cinema LaneThe Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

Police Entertainment Network – Denis Villeneuve: Defining a Decade using Shades of Grey

Starry Traveler’s RoadFrozen and Frozen 2

MovieRobDunkirk

Flick HunterHoly Motors

The Hypersonic55’s Realm of Reviews and Other StuffIp Man 4: The Finale

Drew’s Movie Reviews – Inception

Tranquil Dreams – Your Name

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!

Announcing the Christmas in July Blogathon 2019

Hello friends!

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.

If you want to see last year’s guest list or need some inspiration of what to do for your entry, check out last year’s summary. 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!

Until next time, cheers!

As always, you all brought a great variety to the blogathon that only this community could. Your adoration for cinema has shown through in every one of your entries and we loved reading and sharing every one of them. I don’t want to take all of the spotlight, so before I finish things up, here are a few words from my enchanting co-host:

Before we know it, the almost a full four weeks of Ultimate 2000s Blogathon has come to a close. The best part of the blogathon is seeing everyone’s choices. We almost had one film for every year of the decade this year, except for 2006 (surprising because there are some great movies that came out that year also). What is also really nice is seeing how we got entries in different formats from an editorial to a few different podcast shows as well as the traditional review (in all their different styles to the blog) and there were also a lot of foreign film choices and some first time participants joining us as well. It’s such great fun to put this blogathon together. On an ending note, I’d like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who participated this year as well as everyone who stopped by, read, commented and shared all of these posts. We are immensely grateful and appreciate all the support!

That’s the wrap! The Ultimate 2000s Blogathon has officially come to a close! Thank you once again to our participants for taking the time to share your passion with us and the rest of the community. Another thank you to Kim, my wonderful co-host. You make these blogathons so much fun to put together. And a final thank you to those who liked, commented, or just took the time to read these amazing entries. I hope of all of you reading have found new blogs to follow and new films to watch.

Until next time, cheers!

For those of you who have been around for a while, you know the drill. If you are new here, to participate, just send me a Christmas-themed article as your entry. It can be a movie review, television special review, a list of some kind, or what have you, as long as it is something that relates to Christmas or the holiday season.  Please have your entries sent to me by Sunday, July 15th. If you feel like you need more time, please let me know. We can work something out.

To spice up the blogathon, I’m throwing a party full of everyone’s favorite celebrities. So as part of your blogathon submission, either in the email or part of your entry, include someone you would like to invite to the party, particularly someone you would like to meet under the mistletoe. For example, I would invite Emilia Clarke and maybe some of you would invite Chris Pratt.
