The legendary actor Jack Nicholson turns 80 years old today and over at Realweegiemidget Reviews a Blogathon was put together to help everyone celebrate this together. When I first saw it, I just knew straight way which film I was going to write about and that is As Good As It Gets. One of my all time favourite films and an Oscar Winning performance from Jack!
You’re invited to get deep, personal or have some fun with the lessons films have taught you, for the THINGS I LEARNED FROM THE MOVIES BLOGATHON.
Your hosts are Ruth of Silver Screenings and Kristina of Speakeasy, and this blogathon happens October 14-17, 2016.
You can do anything: a list, essay, video, or podcast, to discuss the valuable or ridiculous life lesson(s) you learned from a film, whether it was about love, war, greed, kindness, activism, bravery, sacrifice, or prejudice. Tell which movie taught you a universal truth, a new concept, the way a system works, how to craft the perfect comeback, deal with a bully, kill a vampire, behave on a date, solve a murder or mix a cocktail with style. Did a film guide your career choice, help you overcome an obstacle, better understand a friend, era, art form or culture, or change your life?
I took part in this Blogathon back in 2014 for some reason or another which I am totally unsure of I didn’t take part in 2015. I must apologise for that as I totally love this Blogathon as it shows that everyone is different and don’t love and hate the same things, one of the best things about watching lots and lots of films!
The rules are simple…
1. Pick one movie that “everyone” loves (the more iconic, the better). That movie must have a score of at least 75% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you hate it.
2. Pick one movie that “everyone” hates (the more notorious, the better). That movie must have a score of less than 35% on rottentomatoes.com. Tell us why you love it.
3. Include the tomato meter scores of both movies.
4. Use one of the banners in this post, or feel free to create your own.
5. Comment on this post, or on KG’s Movie Rants with the two movies you intend on writing on.
6. Publish your post on any day from Monday August 22 through Friday August 26, 2016.
As movie bloggers, we all need to find the time and energy to juggle both tasks of watching a movie and then writing our review of it online.
It’s a very timely theme and this Blogathon will be all about Time-saving movies, 90 minutes or less.
You can pick any movie (or movies) that your heart desires as long as it’s official run time is less than 90 minutes.
Day Two: France as Subject, Films from any country, may take place in France or have French characters or French actors, French source material, or France is significant.
This Blogathon is being hosted by MovieMovieBlogBlog!
The rules are simple:
Please leave me a message in the “Comments” section below that includes the name and URL of your blog, and the name of the cartoon you choose to write about.
Below are banners to advertise the blogathon.

I very luckily came across this Blogathon as it started this weekend and just really felt the need to write a post about one of my all time favourite cartoons. The first one that came into my head (I have probably mentioned it a lot of the blog) was Aladdin. It was the first film I went to see at the cinema as a small child and I still enjoy it to this day. I think it has a little bit of everything and is a lot better than some of the more recently released animated films.
When putting together my 7 Childhood Films for the Childhood Films Blogathon I am hosting I realised that I had not actually put any animated films in! Now that is such a silly thing to do really considering animation is a big part of what you will watch as a child. So I decided to submit another post and have 7 animated films from my childhood in this blog post!
I was never massively into the Disney Princess thing so that will just clarify why not many of them are included in this list. I was going to cheat and include Space Jam with it being part animated but resisted that temptation!
This is post is part of the Childhood Films Blogathon that I am hosting on Let’s Go To The Movies. Read the announcement post – here.
I have decided to keep it in with my 7 Things feature on the blog and have picked 7 of my favourite childhood films and probably some of my all time top watched films!
Just missed out of my list . . . Sister Act
The day has eventually arrived! It seems like forever ago now that I came up with the idea of this blogathon celebrating and sharing our favourite childhood films. Going to be interesting to read who still likes some of them to this day as well! I will keep updating this post with entries, so feel free to post a link to your entry in the comment section 😉
Announcement Post – incase you somehow missed it!
Don’t worry if you have not managed to get your post up this weekend, I will continue to add them if you come up with something you would like to contribute to it all. Hope you can meet some new fellow blogger and find new blogs to read!
