Hey there, dear readers!
Here we are at last, the end of our cinematic journey through the 1980s. My lovely co-host, Kim, and I didn’t know what kind of participation to expect when we were organizing this blogathon. The number of bloggers who joined in was astounding and blew away our expectations. In case you missed any of the entries, here they all are in one convenient location:
Tranquil Dreams – The Breakfast Club (Kickoff)
Drew’s Movie Reviews – Top Gun (Kickoff)
Tranquil Dreams – 80s Dance Movies Triple Feature (Wrap-Up)
Drew’s Movie Reviews – Airplane! (Wrap-Up)
Look at that list! So many awesome bloggers joined in. And such a wide range of films chosen, too. We were expecting some of the big action stars, like Schwarzenegger, Stallone or Bruce Willis, maybe some Back to the Future or Indiana Jones or Blade Runner. But all of you reached to far corners of the 80s for your selections and it couldn’t be more exciting. However, one thing is for certain: John Hughes was a big part of the 80s. Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off all got some love, with Pretty in Pink being reviewed twice. Now before I go on, here are a few words from Kim:
Wow! Four weeks went by like a blink of an eye. Ultimate 80s blogathon was a mega success. Its definitely a great way to start my first blogathon. There is no doubt that the best part of this blogathon was all the incredible participants that joined up and contributed their choices and pieces. The turnout took our breath away. The choices were truly surprising to us, especially when a lot of the popular choices didn’t seem to make the cut. Everyone had very unique choices and now, I have a ton of 80s movie I know I need to catch up with. This could get all sappy and emotional on my end (although I’m probably getting all sentimental and missing it) so I’m going to cut straight to the chase and say THANK YOU! A HUGE THANK YOU to all the participants, everyone who dropped by liked and/or shared their thoughts and of course, my fantastic co-host! 😉
Aww, Kim, you’re gonna make blush. 😛 To echo Kim: Thank you! Thank you to all the participants, thank you to all the commenters and likers, and thank you anyone who read the entries. One of my favorite things about being a blogger is interacting with other bloggers. As I said before, the amount of bloggers who sent in reviews was almost overwhelming, so I had such a blast working with everyone. And I can’t say enough about my co-host. She is laid back and so much fun to work with. Thank you Kim for joining me on this odyssey. 🙂
One last time, thank you to all the participants and readers! You’ve made all the time spent putting this together well worth it.
