I spend a lot of time at either the cinema or theatre. You will then find reviews from these films and shows!

Announcement: Childhood Films Blogathon

I have decided to attempt to host my second Blogathon here on Let’s Go To The Movies. The first one went well, but was not a massive success. So I am hoping that this one will more than make up for it!

With the release of Jurassic World and all the talk heading back to Jurassic Park which is very much one of my childhood films the idea for this Blogathon came about. So I thought why not make it into a Blogathon and learn more about your fellow bloggers and if they still actually like any of their childhood films.

TheΒ Rules

Ok so instead of saying a film can only be wrote about once, I have decided to leave that open. You can indeed write about just one film if you want. But let’s make it more interesting and pick a few films. At least 3 and at the most 25, you can do it in list format and rank them. Or just simply write your blog post around them, try to explain why they were your favourites and if you still enjoy them to this day – as I am sure some of this would have changed!


Look to have your entry submitted over the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July 2015 –Β this gives you a month to get involved!


I have only put together a few so far (from some of my childhood films). I thought that this is where you can ask for some to be made of your childhood films. Just comment below or email –Β to request your banner. Don’t forget to let fellow bloggers know about the blogathon and if you do post about it please link back to this page!

So what are you waiting for?

Let me know if you are interested in taking part and get writing!

  13. I’m in. I’ll get my thinking cap on about how I want to approach the topic, but it will definitely involve Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

      June 16, 2015 at 11:27 am

  16. Oh, here’s a good idea. The only trouble is that I’ve already written about quite a few films from my childhood, so I’ll have to find something I haven’t talked about yet.

    June 16, 2015 at 4:14 pm

    • Caz

      You could always link to those posts where you’ve already written about them if that’s easier? πŸ™‚

      June 16, 2015 at 8:47 pm
