Announcing the It's A Wonderful Life Blog-A-Thon, December 16
There are some films that everyone is supposed to love. They are the ones that appear on those lists, announcing to the world that if you don't like this film, there must be something wrong with me. I guess there's something wrong with me. I've never particularly liked It's a Wonderful Life. In fact, I don't understand how so many people like it. I don't mean this to be mean spirited, but I just don't get it. I would like to, though. I want to see what everyone else sees, even if I choose to continue disliking it. And so, in this effort of greater understanding, I propose a Blog-A-Thon.
This will be a simple affair. One day, one film. Write anything you want, as long as it has to deal with James Stewart's final collaboration with Frank Capra. If you feel the same way as I do, please contribute. If you think I'm dead wrong, explain. The key here is discussion. Too often we let films sit on lists without a proper defense. This is your chance to defend a film you think is great, or it could be your chance to take an overrated film down a peg or two. Whatever you want to say, I will take it. I can assure you that I will have my attack planned out. I think I will go for the left flank first...
If you wish to participate, you can leave a comment here, or you can send me an email. I will leave reminders as the day gets closer, so feel free to let me know whenever you want. Even if you don't participate, please tell everyone you know about this. This is my first Blog-A-Thon, and I hope it will be a success, but that all depends on you.
