The Great Hammer-Amicus Blogathon Wrap-Up

We’ve come to the end of the Great Hammer-Amicus Blogathon, hosted by Gill Jacob from Realweegiemidget Reviews and me, but it’s not really an end, but a beginning. Why, you might ask? We’ve enjoyed hosting this blogathon so much, that we plan on making it an annual event. With that in mind, we hope to see you all next year… and bring your blogging friends!

I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to the bunch of extremely talented folks that chose to be a part of this blogathon. I’m impressed and humbled by your depth of knowledge and passion for these films and the filmmakers behind them. Last, but certainly not least, a huge thanks to my co-host with the most, Gill, for coaxing me out of blogathon-hosting semi-retirement, and for suggesting that we include Amicus in the festivities.

But wait, there’s more! This blogathon ain’t over yet, because we have some last-minute entries, below.

In addition to today’s links, be sure to visit the recaps from the three-day run of the blogathon:
