Announcing Flashback/Backslide’s Sequelthon: Guest Reviews Wanted!

khaaaaanJust over a month ago the internet suffered a great loss. After four years of operation, closed up shop for good on October, 30th. Back in 2012, Grantland published Sequeltology: a tournament to determine the greatest movie sequel of all time. As part of the series (which has been my favorite internet thing ever) the Grantland writers selected 32 films (after a great deal of heated debate) to fight for the title.

As our next Blogathon here at Flashback/Backslide, Lauren and I wanted to pay tribute to Grantland and review the original 32 movies selected by their committee as well as eight sequels released since the tournament finished.LOTR together

We’d love to have everyone’s help tackling these reviews. The full list is below along with tentative dates for each post. We hope you can join! Thanks everyone!

    • Thanks for the catch! I just updated the dates. Luckily it was just the year not the day and month. Also I added you to both LOTR sequels. Thanks for joining in! I’m really interested in hearing your thoughts (…I didn’t love them. Which is blasphemous I know). My (failed) email was an attempt to respond to a comment you left on this site a little while back. If you remember what that was about do you want to shoot me an email ( or send me your address?
