Can you believe that another year is almost over? As this is an entertainment blog, let’s celebrate year’s end in a (b)logical way by indulging in…


Rules for the Blogathon

  1. I would like your entry to be about any movie with a time span of at least one year, which can involve: (a) a movie in which the characters age over the course of a year or more; (b) time-travel movies; or (c) anthology movies with segments involving different eras or periods of time.
  2. If you can come up with a variant not listed above that still involves a time span of a year or more, let me know and I’ll accept it if it fits. Please do not ask for a movie whose time span is less than a year. For example, movies such as Glengarry Glen Ross and Pulp Fiction definitely “play” with time, but in a far shorter time span than one year.
  3. Sorry, no duplicate posts. There are enough time-span movies that you should be able to choose one of your own. Please review the entry list below (which will be updated regularly) to ensure that your choice isn’t already taken.

How Do I Join the Blogathon?

In the “Comments” section at the bottom of this blog, please leave your name, the URL of your blog, and the movie you are choosing to blog about. At the end of this blog entry are banners for the ‘thon. Grab a banner, display it on your blog, and link it back to this blog.

The blogathon will take place from Friday, Jan. 4 through Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019. When the opening date of the blogathon arrives, leave a comment here with a link to your post, and I will display it in the list of entries (which I will continually update up to the beginning of the ‘thon, so keep checking back!).

I will not be assigning particular dates to any blog posts. As long as you get your entry in by the end of the day on Jan. 6, I will be satisfied. (That said, the earlier the better!)

Again, be sure to leave a comment below and grab a banner, and have fun with your blog entry! Here’s the line-up so far:
