Nostalgiathon Blogathon – Introduction

Nostalgiathon 2012 bannerThis has been a few months in the making but the wrapper is finally ready to be pulled off of…


In what originated as a flippant remark between Misty of Cinema Schminema and me, Nostalgiathon is finally here.

Allow me to explain!

The purpose of Nostalgiathon is to relive things from your childhood through the eyes of an adult. Since Andy Watches Movies and Cinema Schminema are both movie-focused blogs, we will be covering movies, but books, TV shows, whatever else are all fair game if you’d like to participate.

“How do I participate?” you may be wondering…It’s easy!

  • If you want to write a post for Nostalgiathon, just put the words “Nostalgiathon” in the title of the post and write a little bit about your feelings of the source material as a kid and how it holds up now

  2. We have a similar column on our site called “What Were We Thinking?” where we watch movies that we loved as kids to see if they’re as good as we remember. It was actually the initial concept of our whole site. It’s fun to do. Good luck!

  3. Every time one of these things comes along, I wrestle with myself whether or not I want to do it. Sometimes my mind forces me to get on it, but I always end up getting there too late. So I make no promises.

  10. Hi Andy, I love this idea and event. Is it too late for me to contribute? I’m not sure how I missed the details until now. I look forward to hearing from you as I have lots of memories, as we all do.



    PS – do older posts count? The post I did on ON THE TOWN is perfect for this but no big deal if you want only new ones.
