Following the success of my previous blogathon – 007 December (where we managed to jointly write 77 reviews of all 26 James Bond movies, I decided that I wanted to do another blogathon on a general movie theme that can also once again generate a lot of reviews.
After mulling it over for the past month, I decided to choose movies directed by Rob Reiner.
Rob Reiner is a very talented actor and director and since his birthday is 6 March, I decided to choose the 17 movies that he directed as the theme for my next blogathon.
If you look at his filmography as a director, you will notice that he never really stuck with one genre and he is perhaps one of the most diverse director around.
When Reiner was an actor in the 70’s, his most famous TV role was that of Archie Bunker’s son-in-Law Mike Stivic on the show All in the Family.
Bunker always referred to him as Meathead because of his liberal views, so I decided to name this blogathon after his famous nickname.
For this blogathon, I once again want to encourage multiple reviews of the same movies and I plan to run it the same way as the previous one; I plan to post multiple reviews on the same day of every movie.
There is no limit to the number of reviews anyone can do. (I plan to review all 17)
It’s quite simple to participate. All you have to do is put a comment here as to which movie(s) you want to review or just shoot me an email with the info to email@example.com
Anyone who loves movies is welcome to join in!
I’d like to set a deadline for submitting reviews by 26th Feb in order to have a bit of time to organize and arrange things, but if someone has a personal request for a slight extension, send me an email and we will see what can be done.
Below is the list of Reiner’s 17 theatrical movies as Director, you can see just by browsing how diverse the genres are, so I’m sure there is something for everyone here. That means you Eric, Mutant, Josh and Emma.
