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.

The 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 – 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 – 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!

  2. […] Let’s Go to the Movies has a great blogathon celebrating the films we loved when we were kids. I’m a 90’s kid, so my list is heavily influenced by that time and the Disney renaissance. Films were very important to me when I was a kid. I am an only child, so when I was very young I spent A LOT of time alone. Movies, and the characters within them, were essential to my childhood. When I think back on that time, I realize that movies were integral to developing my imagination and instilling in me resilience. The three films that influenced me the most are: […]
