Blogathon – Update

cropped-taxi-driver3

I just thought I’d do one final shout out and advertise our new site & blogathon. We are still looking for volunteers to write about a Robert De Niro film. The only stipulation is that it has to be one of his films you’ve never seen before.

We are looking to kick off the project early in October, and have already received a few submissions. I’m here now to let those that are interested know what we need from you. Basically, we just need you to email your review to: tysoncarter@hotmail.co.uk

It can be as long or short as you like, and include any images you fancy, just write in your own unique style. All we ask is that you review the film and write a little about how the main man De Niro is in his role. Then just include a rating out of 10. The rest of it can be however you like.

The following people have signed up and reserved these films (I know a couple of you weren’t 100% you could enter, that’s cool, just let me know and I can put your film back in the pot) so if you haven’t yet signed up, and the film you’re interested in isn’t listed below, then please shout out in the comments and reserve yours.

    • Still looking for people, you would just need to find a film not listed and reserved above! Any not listed, that you’ve never seen, if you want to join we’d love to have you onboard! Just reply here with your choice of film 🙂

  4. I’m just not a big enough fan for this. I have to send it to Garry. He might be interested. He’s definitely more of a fan than I am.

    • Don’t do that yet Nick. The time will come for that, man. There will be future projects and i’d rather not throw all our eggs in one basket just yet.

      Would love to get a review from you, though.

  8. Looking forward to the blogathon! I saw Everybody’s Fine this weekend for my entry. I love De Niro’s performance here, such a contrast to his role in The Family. You already know how I feel about that one 😀

    • Nice!! Can’t wait to read your thoughts on it. I still havent seen that one so good to hear De Niro was solid 🙂

      • Wow, a De Niro film YOU haven’t seen yet? Well, I pick the right one then 😀

        @ Mark – yes indeed it’s perhaps one of my fave De Niro roles, I wish he’d do more dramatic roles like that one. It’s not as commercial perhaps but he’s sooo good in it.

        • There are a few, I think Mark is winning the poll on who has seen most, but still plenty for us both to get through. One day 🙂

    • I thought DeNiro was fantastic in Everybody’s Fine, Ruth. It was good to see him embrace an older character.

  10. Yo Tyson, would it be OK for me to switch from The Good Shepherd to Analyze This? I know it’s late but I still haven’t gotten my hands on a copy of my original pick (meanwhile, the other one’s literally a feet away from me) and I really want to participate… 😛
