BLOGATHON… Announcing the Kurt Russell Blogathon


Another month, another leading man, another blogathon…


Join me for another joint blogathon just before that other joint blogathon with Return to the 80s.


Top 10 Kurt Russell Performances,

The subject of this blogathon which I am running with Paul from Return to the 80s is… the one and only, the lovely Kurt Russell. He has been starring in movies, TV Movies and TV since the age of 11, which was a shocking 56 years ago!!! Bloggers are free to review from any of these mediums… This can include his animated roles, such as The Fox and the Hound (1981) to his romantic comedy roles such as Overboard (1987).

Or you can write about his work with directors such as John Carpenter and Quentin Tarantino. These can be from his film debut as a child star in an uncredited role in Elvis Presleys It Happened at the World’s Fair (1963) to his more recent parts in the Fast and Furious franchise in Furious 7 (2015) and The Fate of the Furious (2017) or in the Marvel film series in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017).

Or you can tell about any of his TV roles from Dennis the Menace (1962) to Hawaii Five-O (1977). All we ask is you write a respectful post on him and his work. A list of his movies and TV appearances can be found HERE and HERE

We’re celebrating his 56 years on the big and wee screen here in a 3 day blogathon from the 21st to 23rd of May this year… and we are inviting the usual suspects to join us be you film or TV podcasters or bloggers.

You can write about Russell’s role as an actor and choose a film from any decade of his film career so far, or write about the man himself. Just suggest your post if you are not sure and we’ll approve it if it’s suitable. Do come and join in the fun… as usual, I have my who’s doing what page linked to HERE.

  1. I need to get the bad taste out of my mouth from having to swallow Return from Witch Mountain and The Watcher in the Woods, the two Disney clunkers I did this week for another blogathon. As I recall I particularly liked the Dexter Riley films from the 70’s. If it’s not being too greedy I’ll take all three; “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes”, “Now You See Him Now You Don’t” and “The Strongest Man in the World”.
