  1. Aw man, I didn’t read the deadline and thought I had a few more days. 😦 Oh well. Great work setting this up, Conman! Since I wasn’t able to get in on it, here are my picks:

    Joy: Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
    Sadness: Toy Story 3
    Fear: Insidious
    Anger: Rage
    Disgust: Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

  2. I’m so glad I found the time to do this Connor, (almost didn’t).

    Such a wonderful idea and It’s so telling when there are so many different opinions as to which movie instills in each of us different emotions.

    Why am I not surprised at all that MMWE was ur joy! 🙂

    cant wait to see what u have planned in the coming weeks…

  3. Hey Conman, just got wind of this amazing idea of a blogathon through Drew of Drew Reviews Movies. I understand the deadline for submissions has passed, but I was just wondering if you wouldn’t mind if I put up a post about it on my site and linked back to this page? The concept is just too cool for me to not do something. Let me know!



    • Hey, be my guest. I’m flattered that so many people want to participate in the blogathon. I always try to put a little kindness in the world, so I say, ‘Go for it!’.

      • Excellent! Thanks, it should be posted tomorrow afternoon. Maybe even late tonight if I can think quick. 🙂 Thanks for having me.
