Announcing the Time Travel Blogathon

Time travel? Great Scott! Image: Giphy

Whee! We are thrilled to co-host The Time Travel Blogathon with our pal Rich of Wide Screen World.

As Rich says, “Time travel movies include more than just the Terminators and Back to the Futures of the world: think of A Christmas Carol or A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court or Brigadoon.”

Film history is brimming with time travel adventures, and we can’t wait to celebrate them the weekend of March 9-11, 2018.

Just let us know your movie choice(s) and we’ll collect all entries the weekend of March 9-11. Whether a film is 100 years old, or has just been released in theatres or on Netflix, we want to know what excites you about these films.

Stuck for ideas? You can find a list of time travel movies HERE.

Grab a banner, and we’ll see you in March!

  1. If it hasn’t been taken yet, I’d like to write about the Austin Powers series, please. I grew up on those movies and I think it’d be a lot of fun to do a post on them.

  2. Hi, while watching Arrival recently I noticed that it has a similar theme to Peggy Sue Got Married, even though the films are very different. I’d like to write about how the two films are alike/unalike. Thanks!

    1. Great idea! I’ve not heard of this film before, and it sounds like one I’ll love. Besides, what’s not to like about Marissa Tomei? So happy you’re joining us! I’ll add to you the roster when I get home this evening.

  3. Although I am over committing to blogathons these days I simply can’t resist this one. Terrific topic and hosted by two favorites. 😉 I almost went with THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES, but decided on BACK TO THE FUTURE, which I’ve been meaning to rewatch for some time. If I can manage the series I will do that.

    Many thanks,

    1. Awesome!! I was hoping someone would take “Back to the Future”, and I’m so glad it’s you, Aurora. Hooray! (Now, if you get busy, that is A-OK. We understand.)
      P.S. Rich came up with the Time Travel idea.

      1. Nuts! I didn’t see it up there on the list. If it’s okay, I’d still like to do it though. As part of a multi-film review based on the theme of lonely guys finding true love in the past, maybe it will bring something to complement rather than compete with the other review. That or I can just shelve it until next year’s 😉

  4. Reblogged this on SindrElf and commented:
    Here is the full list of links to the various great blogs in The Time Travel Blogathon that I took part in with my last blog-post “Source Code – A Retrospective”.
    Ignore the “announcing” part, this post has been edited later on.

    There are a lot of good posts there, so…get clicking! 😉

  5. Hi Ruth. I’m extremely sorry that I’m late yet again. I was unexpectedly called out of town on the weekend and I didn’t have internet access on my computer, only on my phone. I did however manage to write out half of my time travel post for the blogathon before I left, but because of the internet connection I couldn’t complete it there. I am however finishing off my article now, and I will send it to you as soon as its ready.
