CCU16: February 2016 New Releases & The #CriterionBlogathon

Twitter Badge

The first Criterion Blogathon is over but this celebration of films especially from the Criterion Collection will go on. As long as Criterion continues to release these gems, there will always be a reason for fans to celebrate. I want to personally thank our hosts Aaron ( Criterion Close Up ), Kristina (Speakeasy) and Ruth (Silverscreenings) for all their efforts in making this event a big success including their excellent posts (including Mark’s also of the Criterion Close Up) on this month’s Criterion releases.

This is the best episode thus far  of the Criterion Close Up due to amount of material covered. Thanks to all the host who read all the posts and all the participants ( including our COOL HOSTS) who poured out their passion in writing for this event. It was all worth it. Gained some new friends, strengthened friendships.

Until next time, We Are Groot. You’re Welcome! Thanks for the mention!
