Also, two more quick pieces of news:

First, I have a new blog!  It's Nate's Mini Reviews, a site where I write very, VERY short reviews of all of my cinematic conquests.  Consider it a movie journal.


Second, I now have a twitter page!  It's NateHood257.  Feel free to join for blogathon updates and general snarkiness.

If you have any more questions, drop me a comment and let me know!

  1. Going to be a great Blog-a-thon. The great looking banner hath been posted at The Most Beautiful Fraud in the World.

  2. I see by the intriguing list that no one has chosen "The Thing from Another World". May I?

    (e-mail: misspaddylee@yahoo.ca)

  3. Nathanael,
    Great Banner! Getting ready to put it up on my site and let me know when you are assigning days as I want the first day if available.

  4. I concur about the banner; it's perfect! Where's that image from? (Also, say hello to Rachael for me!)

  5. Sorry, Caftan Woman, we of Team Bartilucci grabbed THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD long ago (it's one of our faves), along with MOTHRA (one of Vinnie's faves :-)), for a creature double-feature. There's still plenty of fun films to get ahold of, though. Looking forward to seeing yours and everyone else's picks!

  6. Hey, Blogathon Master Nathanael, will we have to choose particular dates to post within the July 27th to August 3rd window of opportunity? If so, when will we know when those dates are? Please keep us posted.

  7. Dorian, I didn't see it up there. Looking forward to your take.

  8. Caftan Woman

    It's all your's! Thanks for joining!

  9. Page, Stacia, Jake

    Thank you all!

  10. Caftan Woman

    Sorry! I guess that I spoke too soon...

    I hope that you will not abandon the blogathon.

  11. Dorian

    I want to wait a little longer for more people to sign up before we start assigning dates.

  12. I'm back. I've given it some thought. I've looked over the list a couple of times. I don't see it, so...can I have "This Island Earth"? Fingers crossed (so hard to type).

  13. Just curious, what movie is the banner picture from?!
    Also I added it to my blog!

  14. Caftan Woman

    Doesn't look like it! It's yours!

  15. Chris

    I'm shocked! That's "Robot Monster" one of the most famous Z-grade movies ever made! It was a classic episode of MST3K!

  16. I haven't seen that MST3K episode yet.

  17. Chris

    Oh man...you need to! It's like...the perfect bad movie.

  18. Grand Old Movies would like to sign up for the blogathon! We'd like to write on 1959's "The Alligator People" - about gators and humans being spliced together. We sent you an email on it - let us know! thanks.

  19. Thank you for wanting to join!

    I just sent you an email confirmation.

  20. I'd love to join! This is something I've never done before, and it sounds exciting! Do give me your advice, which should I pick, The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Quatermass Xperiment, or Revenge of the Creature?

    I'll send you a confirmation email soon!

  21. It's all your choice! Looking forward to your participation!

  22. What fun! Sign me up for The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad.

  23. Sure thing! I need you to send me your email address so I can add it to the mailing list.

  24. Caftan Woman, I'm looking forward to your THIS ISLAND EARTH blog post, as does my partner in crime, Vinnie! :-)

  25. Am I allowed to join in? My blog is not STRICTLY a Film Blog but I post about vintage films quite frequently. My film choice would be SON OF FRANKENSTEIN. I don't see it selected on the list. Unfortunately Becky got CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON which is my favorite. And Dorian got THE THING and Caftan Woman got THIS ISLAND EARTH. I didn't spot this blogathon info until today. WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

  26. I don't know! But of course you can join! Just send your movie pick, site link, and email address to nahood@ursinus.edu and I'll add you right away!

  27. Just realized that SON OF FRANKENSTEIN is a 1939 movie. So I'll pick something else. Let me see what's what.

  28. Okay, got one. I didn't see it on the list.


    How's that?

  29. It's all yours! Looking forward to your entry!

  30. How many participants now? Will we reach the 50 mark!?! I can't wait for this Blog-A-Thon I think I'm gonna get me a DVD Boxset of monster films at my lunch!!!

  31. We now have 39 participants! Wooooooo!

    I'm still trying to get people to join. Maybe we'll overshoot our goal!

  32. I just fixed it! Thanks for the notification!
