  1. I’ve read a lot of great reviews this week. And still have plenty more to comb through. I’m also glad I got to participate. Thanks for hosting such a great event.

  2. This was an amazing blogathon, Todd.

    One thing that surprised me about 1984 was the number of films that were about or payed homage to classic films. It seems like every classic movie blogger who participated chose this type of movie – and there were several released in this year to choose from. That was a wonderful, unexpected surprise.
