So, last week I posted a Ten Perfect Cinematic Moments list and it was met with unexpected excitement from my fellow bloggers who seemed to really love the idea and even suggested it would make a great blogathon, so that got me thinking...LET'S DO THIS!
The rules are super simple, so simple they may as well not be rules, just suggestions.
1) Pick a number between 1 and 100 (any more than 100 is just gaudy)
2) Choose that many cinematic moments that are either your all time favorites or ones that could, on any given day, be your all time favorites
3) Post them on your blog (or Tumblr or whatever) with the above header (or one you create for yourself)
4) Send me the link by either posting it here in the comments or getting ahold of me on Twitter ( @fististhoughts )
So, I just want to clarify what I consider a cinematic moment before we continue. To quote my previous post:
We all have them in the back of our minds; those moments that make us think "man, this is what the movies are all about". We relive those moments in our mind's eye, remembering them and dissecting them and adoring them. They come in all shapes and sizes, from all types of films, and yet they all share one very important aspect; they define why we love the movies. It could be the way that the moment is cut; the way it's edited together. It could be the way the moment uses it's actors to evoke a powerful emotion from us. It could be the way that music floods the scene and draws us even closer to the moment in question. It could be a grand climax, a breathtaking introduction or a simple interchange. It could be any and all things, because for every film lover, the list is different.
So have at it! I can't wait to see what you come up with. I'll be posting a summary post with links to all participants on APRIL 6th. I debated giving everyone more than two weeks to participate, but I've found that if you're going to participate in a blogathon that intrigues you, you usually do it within the first week of hearing about it, or else you forget. So, you get two weeks my friends! But, like my rules that aren't really rules, I'm flexible, so if you're going to be late, don't fret, I want any and everyone to play along and I will link you all!
