So, you may remember that Justin from Today I Watched A Movie were in a competition for page views and I won! I had my best month ever and made it past 5,000 views for the month so I’m totally stoked. Thanks everyone that has visited and if you’ve visited more than once I may be in love with you. For his defeat, Justin has to watch a turd of a movie of my choosing, so stay tuned to his site for that and/or follow us both on Twitter (@watchesmovies and @todayiwatched) for our hijinx.
The other piece of news I wanted to share is that I’ve officially passed the 200 movie mark, I still have two more reviews to write, but that means I’ve got only 100 movies left for my goal in 2012. I think I can safely hit the 300 mark, so we’ll see how far I can go!
Lastly, a bit of a teaser for a blogathon that Misty from Cinema Scminema and I will be hosting sometime in the next month or so. The theme for the blogathon, you may be wondering? Nostalgia.
So, yesterday, I asked “what movie defines your childhood?” and that was leading people into thinking about things that would make them nostalgic. We all have movies from growing up that we love; The Goonies, Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller, Karate Kid, etc. These movies are movies that many of us grew up watching and likely still have great memories of the movies as kids as well as adults. We want to focus on that nostalgic factor to films, but also films from your childhood that may not have been super popular or that you had a weird attachment to as a kid.
More details of Nostalgiathon will be forthcoming, so stay tuned, but start brainstorming now.
