Time is on your side in the Time Travel Blogathon!

I'm very excited to do this year's blogathon with someone who has pretty much become an expert at it: Ruth from Silver Screenings — and we've got one we think you'll dig for sure!

Time travel movies include more than just the Terminators and Back to the Futures of the world: think of A Christmas Carol or A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court or Brigadoon. We're sure you can find similar movies from throughout all of film history, and we wanna see them in our Time Travel Blogathon. (Here's a list.)

You know what to do: let either Ruth or myself know what movies you want to write about and we'll collect all your entries on the weekend of March 9-11. Your banners are here (so nice to have great looking banners for a change, thank you Ruth!).

Ruth will write about one called Tomorrow I’ll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea, while my film will be Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah!

  2. I've been thinking the possibilities over, and would like to write about Repeat Performance, a dandy from 1947.

  3. 1947. Awesome. I'm hoping we get a few really old ones.

  4. Surely its just a coincidence that I posted last week on The Midnite Drive-in about how I love time travel themes. (Or is it...? woooweeewoo...) I'll pick a double feature of 60's movies from the schlockmeisters at American International Pictures. "Beyond the Time Barrier" from 1960 and "The Time Travelers" from 1964.

  5. Nothing wrong with a little schlock now and then.

  6. Oh, this is the perfect moment to write a review of The Road to Yesterday (1925)! You can count me in!
    Cheers!

  8. I was browsing the stacks at my local used book/video store and found a movie that I never heard of. It's a Sonny Chiba film called G.I. Samurai which has Chiba and a cadre of modern Japanese soldiers transferred back to feudal Japan. I only know that I have liked Chiba's movies in the past, so it has a good start going for it. Don't change my entry, but tentatively T'd like to add a second entry. No promises, but I want to try.

  9. Sonny Chiba in feudal Japan... I'd buy that for a dollar!

    You wanna do a second movie, it's up to you.
