So you’re finished with another hot summer day. You’re cool and refreshed, you have your snacks at hand, and you’ve turned on Turner Classic Movies to watch that favorite film of yours that you haven’t had the chance to see in decades. And then, as the minutes roll on…
Your nostalgia melts like a Sno-Cone in the summer sun, as the memories of that movie you treasured for ages suddenly devolve into, “What did I ever see in this thing?”
It’s happened to all of us. Some movies only get better with age, while others remain frozen in time, their once-vibrant charms faded like a reel of nitrate film left in an outhouse in the 1930’s.
Only by writing about this wrenching event can you regain power over your movie-watching experience. Hence…THE “MOVIES THAT HAVEN’T AGED WELL” BLOGATHON!!
We don’t want you to postpone this personal growth experience — there’s no time like the present! Right this wrong by writing about the movie that’s done you wrong. Then follow these steps:
* Post the writing at your blog.
* Go to the “Comments” section below, and post the name and URL of both your blog and the movie you’ve written about.
* Grab the banner shown at the top and bottom of this blog entry, and link it back to this URL. (Be sure to link it back to the URL that references this blogathon, not just our blog’s general URL!)
* As soon as we see your listing in the “Comments” section, we’ll link back to your blog for all the world to read your movie memoir!
Again, this blogathon is running right now, through Aug. 31, 2015. You don’t have to wait for some far-off date in the future — share your cathartic movie experience with our blog’s readers ASAP. If global warming is going to keep us trapped in our homes for the entire summer, let us at least make it count for our fellow film buffs!
