Blockbuster Month Roundup: Essays, Features, Lists, and Merch

on July 27, 2020, 2:30pm

Blockbuster Month has come to an end.

All throughout July, Consequence of Sound celebrated the blockbuster experience and the true titans of the genre with a variety of features that dug deep into the greatest hits of Hollywood — from popcorn classics to underrated gems.

There were lists, there were op-eds, there were interviews, and there was plenty of merchandise. It was a truly spirited event that saw many of our strongest writers buckle under the whims of nostalgia. Thank you, Mr. Spielberg!

 

Fortunately, like all of our old VHS tapes, you can revisit that magic below — and you should. After all, our favorite blockbusters aren’t going anywhere, especially not as Covid-19 continues to keep new releases at bay.

So, clean out that popcorn bowl, make another batch, and enjoy the show (again).
