The John Williams Blogathon Has Arrived


It’s here, people. Time to celebrate everything John Williams and the movies that he scored. I’m excited about this…how about you? I hope everyone enjoys themselves.

All right, you all know the drill. I’ll be updating this post over the next four days, so please feel free to send me your reviews and I’ll add them as soon as I can.

One thing: Don’t forget to add #HappyBirthdayJohnWilliams or #JohnWilliams to your posts if you promote them, and maybe our guest of honor (or someone who knows him) will see them. It could happen, right?
