I had such a great time hosting the Sword & Sandal Blogathon earlier this year, I’ve been eager to host another event.
This time, I’m inviting bloggers to contemplate friendships in films.
Bromances, womances, frienemies, comrades in arms, childhood chums, sidekicks, unlikely people thrown together by circumstances, devoted siblings—any way you want to interpret “friendship” is fine with me!
The relationship(s) you choose to write about can either be the main focus of a film or one element of a film.
You may write about any film from any era, silent to present day, and from any country. Short films—both live action and animated—are welcome, too!
Only two (rather loose) rules:
- No duplicates. However, different people can pick different films in a series, i.e. Abbott and Costello films or the Our Gang shorts. Also, if one person has chosen to write about a relationship in a film and another wants to write about a different relationship in the same film, that’s fine. For instance, Han Solo and Chewbacca/Han and Luke.
- Film only. No television, please. Exception to this rule is if the characters also appear in feature films. So if you’re dying to write about Captain Kirk and Spock from Star Trek or Carrie and her buds from Sex and the City, that’s O.K. as long as you focus on one or more of their feature film appearances.
The blogathon will run Friday, November 18 – Sunday, November 20. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).
