Hello everyone! If you didn’t know, I myself am new to the classic film blogging world. Wanting to be more involved and have some fun, I’ve decided to host my very first ever Blogathon! Want details?- Continue reading below!
If you’ve ever wanted to discuss the significance of a certain film quote that has found its way in pop culture, here’s your chance to do so! The theme of the Blogathon is called “Classic Quotes” and it will run from March 4-6 2016. (I went for March because Christmas season is busy and I know Oscar season will have passed by then. Also, I know there are some other Blogathons coming up in February I don’t want you guys to feel rushed!!)
The rules are you must pick a quote that has made its way into pop culture and since its release has went on to become relevant to everyday life. You can choose any quote on the AFI top 100 list, but of course it’s not limited to it, as there were many quotes that didn’t make the cut. Try to stay away from films made from the 2000s.
So what do you include in the post? Here’s a list to get you started: 1- The speaker (actor and the character they portray) 2-The film it is from 3-Who the quote is directed to 4- anything significant surrounding the quote (i.e. maybe it almost got edited out, or maybe it was improvised by an actor or director) 5- the legacy it gives (why do we love this quote in the modern day when it was said by someone years and years ago?!) Don’t be afraid to throw in your own 2 cents! 😉
Please submit your blog name and quotes in the comments section, DM me or tweet me on Twitter ( @flapperdame16 ), or contact me on tumblr (under the message me tab) and requests will be made on a first come first serve basis. (Note- if you do the tumblr option and you leave a message as an “anonymous”please leave an email address so I can confirm your participation) No repeats as there are many, many great quotes to talk about! I will make a list for everyone to see once requests start coming in. Below is the list of taken quotes and participants.
