Announcement: Against the Crowd Blogathon 2015
It's Blogathon time again!!!
Why now? It's simple. I've finally centralized all of my Blogathons, and entries into other blogathons on its own page. Why not have something to add to it?
I've run a number of these in the last couple years with varying degrees of success. The most popular was the Against the Crowd Blogathon. Since this a movie blog, I'll do what Hollywood does: take what's successful and make a sequel. That means I'm running a 2015 version.
For those of you wondering what it is, this is your chance to vent. This is where you tell the world about your love for a movie everyone else hates and your hatred for a movie everyone else loves.
The rules for participation 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.
That's pretty much it.
Oh yeah, let's make sure we let as many people as possible know how crazy you are. Leave a link to your post in the comments section below. In a few weeks, I'll create a post with links to all the entries.
By the way, should a movie you select not have a grade on rottentomatoes.com, use a score of at least 7.5 on imdb.com for ones you hate and less than 4.0 for ones you love.
I'm setting the deadline for two weeks from now: August 21, 2015.
I look forward to your entries!
