Sword & Sandal Blogathon – Day 2

Slower day today, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have some kick-ass entries!

portraitsbyjenni writes about how Samson and Delilah (1949) exceeded her expectations for a Biblical epic.


MovieMovieBlogBlog writes about how Troy (2004) didn’t quite meet his expectations, though it should please action (and Brad Pitt) fans.


Movierob  finds Cleopatra (1963) more enjoyable than its flop status would indicate.


Thoughts All Sorts  assures us that if it’s swords and sandals we want, 300 (2006) provides plenty of both.

P.S.: I seem to be having some kind of technical issue with WordPress. Every time I try to comment on blog posts, they don’t post. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon. My apologies!

  1. Hi Debbie – I signed up for this without paying close attention to the date. I’m co-hosting the 1932 blogathon this weekend and still haven’t done my post for that. I can recite Brooks’ History of the World by Heart and will try my best to get that to you, but with this ending tomorrow it looks unlikely. I apologize. I really wanted to contribute that.

    1. NO problem! Post it whenever it’s convenient. If you can’t, that’s O.K., too. I’ve double-booked blogathons, too, I know how it is. 🙂

  2. I would have posted for Saturday, but I entered the Ray Harryhausen Blogathon over at Wolffian Classic. He started his on the 10th and I took the opportunity to use the conjunctive date and use the same blog entry for both posts. Happyto see Saturday wasn’t a loss without me… 🙂
