TDC Blogathon: Mt. Rushmore of Movies

Okay, I feel like a bit of a used car salesman here, but in honor of President's Day, we here at Two Dollar Cinema are proud to be hosting our first annual blogathon, the Mt. Rushmore of Movies.

To participate, simply choose the top 4 of anything cinematic and explain why it should be carved into the side of a mountain forever. Remember, these are real people carved into imaginary rock - so choose wisely!

Who are the top 4 directors of all-time? What about the top 4 movie villains (see also: annoying kids)? You could even go nuts and create the Mt. Rushmore of wasted talent. Or a tribute to 4 actors gone too soon. It could even be decade specific if you like.

Whatever category you come up with will be accepted, so by all means have fun with it (even if you do a Mt. Rushmore of shittiest blogs and put Two Dollar Cinema as all 4 choices). I'd like to have all the posts done by the last day of the month if possible (Friday, the 28th), but if you're late, no worries. I'll still update the main post and link back to your site. Feel free to share the announcement logo on your blog, if you don't mind the massive shot to your credibility, that is. Hopefully your Mt. Rushmore is one people want to take the kids to, versus one we all hope is destroyed in an alien invasion.

To participate, simply include a link in the comments section below and I'll add it to my post on the 28th. Or even claim your category now in the comments, and post the link later (so we don't end up with duplicates). You can also e-mail me at twodollarcinema@gmail.com if you want to keep it a secret, um, or something.

Thanks for participating...
Now, let's see what you clever kids can come up with.

  2. I'm down. I'm ready to try to be funny again (and obviously fail). I have an idea that I'm pretty sure no one else will think of *curls tiny mustache*

    1. This is perfect.

      Unless of course, you're going with the Mt. Rushmore of tiny mustaches.

      Because that's what I was going to do.

    1. Well..it's not too original, but yeah...I'm pretty cool.

      On that note, looking forward to what you come up with. Especially because you sent that me that email saying yours would 'smoke all those other bitches'.

      I'm pretty sure that happened.

    Thanks for hosting! If the post sucks too bad, just say that I was 3,3 hours late with the post. I got stuck with drinking whiskey until midnight and then got distracted by pictures of the people on my Mt Rushmore. Cheers!
