Argumentative August Blogathon


This July 27th will mark the second anniversary of my blog. Most of you would be surprised to know I have never hosted a blogathon before. I’ve had a lot of ideas for themes I’d love to explore, but I just don’t think I have the kind of following to host epic ones like so many of my other friends do.

MovieRob approached me and asked if I’d be interested in co-hosting something in August. We went back in forth for a couple of days looking for the right theme, something that hasn’t been done yet but would be awesome that so many people would be interested. I was looking up some court room movie when I came across a list by GamesRadar, the Top 50 Court Room Dramas. I went to Rob and he loved the idea. We took their list and added two movies of our own to make it 52 movies in total.

We would love for as many of you as possible to contribute, so please let us know which movie/movies you’d like to review.

We plan to post two reviews a day all through the month of August (one on each of our sites)

To join, all you have to do is post here, on Rob’s site or send either of us an email.

We only want one review per film, so it’s gonna be first come, first served.
