Announcing the It’s a Young World: Teen Movie Blogathon!

It may be something to do with spring or prom season or impending summer vacation, but the teenagers are getting restless at Pop Culture Reverie and In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood. We have to give them their own blogathon before they run wild in the streets. It will be anarchy, I tell you. Anarchy! To prevent the teenpocalypse, we’re having a teen movie blogathon 16-19 May 2019.

And now for you gals and guys, a few words to the wise:

  1. Chosen movies must be about characters ages 12-19. And so, my fans and friends, think It to Animal House as the bookends.
  2. Since there are so many films to choose from and teens are easily bored, we’re staying groovy and only allowing one duplicate per movie.
  3. The teens will be studying for finals and planning for prom, so a maximum three entries per blog lest their brains explode.
  4. If you don’t have a blog and still want to participate, don’t be a wallflower. Put on your dancing shoes, and let me or Crystal know. We can post the entry on one of our blogs.
  5. It’s a young world, so all entries must be fresh. No old posts allowed.

For all you rebels without a cause, these are the laws. We have to stick to ‘em, or it will be anarchy. See above.

So bring your surfboards, hot rods, poodle skirts, and red windbreakers. We’re going to rock & roll all night and party every day—for four days.

  1. I’d love to do 10 Things I Hate About You.

  2. Hi! This is a lovely idea. May I please write about Heathers and A Date with Judy?

  3. Hello! I would be delighted to write about ‘Stealing Beauty’ (1996). 😊

  4. That same weekend I’m doing a “Cops” blog-a-thon. So, that gave me the idea of doing a “Cops and Robbers” blog-a-thon double header. To that end, I’d like to do the 1983 Sean Penn movie “Bad Boys.”

  5. I would like to do a post about Can’t Hardly Wait. My blog name Overture Books and Film.

  6. Hi. May I please write about Heathers and A Date For Judy? My blog is Palewriter2.

  7. That same weekend I’m doing a “Cops” blog-a-thon. So, that gave me the idea of doing a “Cops and Robbers” blog-a-thon double header. To that end, I’d like to do the 1983 Sean Penn movie “Bad Boys.”

  8. Could I write about Peppermint Soda (1977)? Thank you!

  9. How does a Back to the Future trilogy piece sound? I know Part III only has Marty (Michael j. Fox), but the other two involve several teens. But Part III would need to be covered in the piece, I think. If that idea is unacceptable I could limit it to just the first one.

  10. Can you add me with Peggy Sue Got Married (1988)? from Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews

  11. Hi Robin! This is a great idea for a blogathon! I’d like to participate by reviewing the film Lean on Pete (2017). I’ve never seen this movie and I haven’t heard a lot of people talk about this film. Despite this, I have heard good things about it.

  12. Can I do Eighth Grade for The Stop Button?

  13. I would love to do “Say Anything” because *Gasp* I have never seen it and my wife thinks I’m nuts for missing out.
