In celebration of Mel Brooks’ 90th birthday on June 28th, The Cinematic Frontier will host a 3-day Mel Brooks Blogathon.
Mel Brooks is one of the greatest comedic filmmakers of all time, having made many classic comedies, most of which spoofed a particular film or genre. From The Producers to Young Frankenstein to Spaceballs, Brooks has left an incredible legacy in the worlds of comedy and cinema. June 28th marks Brooks’ 90th birthday, and what better way to honor him than with an entire blogathon dedicated to his films.
Here are the guidelines for this blogathon:
For the purposes of this blogathon, let’s keep the focus mainly on reviews of feature films directed by Brooks for the big screen (an exception will be made for anyone who wants to submit a post on the To Be Or Not To Be remake he produced and starred in). These must also be brand new posts (no recycling of old posts).
If you would like to suggest a film-related topic, however, involving Mel Brooks (for example: a comparison of two of his films and how they’re similar, a commentary on the genres he spoofed, etc.), you may submit it in the comments section on Cinematic Frontier.
Since Brooks only directed 11 films, two duplicates per title will be allowed.
To submit your choice, please include your name, the name of your blog, your blog URL, and your choice in the comments section on this page.
The blogathon will take place from Tuesday June 28th through Thursday June 30th. You can post your entry on your blog on any of those days (or slightly ahead of time if you wish). Just inform Cinematic Frontier by posting a link below in the comments section and a blogathon update will be posted for each day.
Got something to plug that the rest of the LAMB can participate in? OK, don’t get all crazy about it. Just click here and give me the details (what, when, where, and a link, for starters) – I’ll handle the rest.
