BLOGATHON… Announcing my Michael Caine Blogathon 2018


Not a lot of people know that it’s Michael Caine’s 85th birthday on the 14th of March…


Celebrating it here on Realweegiemidget Reviews in The Marvellous Michael Caine Blogathon.


20 Great Michael Caine Films, Kevin Kavanagh


Michael Caine has been one of those actors I’ve grown up with since watching Surrender (1987) with my dad and Interstellar (2014) and with my Darlin Husband. And those in between and after.  He’s been the star of 115 films and counting, won 2 Oscars and been starring in movies for over 60 years.

I’ve loved him in his romantic comedies with Sally Field and Michelle Pfeiffer, his disaster movies with Richard Widmark and Richard Chamberlain and his war films with Larry Hagman and Sylvester Stallone. Leading me to announce this Cockney actor’s birthday blogathon. Despite the possibly misleading title of this blogathon, it’s covering all of his career to date including his voice work, cameos and life story.

As you’ll see as 2018 is approaching I’ve blogathons on my mind, and this is the first of possibly five that may happen next year (with 2 definite joint ones so far). Caine is due to turn a spritely 85 next year, so I’m tying in this blogathon with his birthday and running it from the 12th to 14th March 2018. The last day being Michael Caine’s birthday and a recap of all the posts after that.


So here are the rules…

And love you lovely lot of Film, TV and Book bloggers to join me….or anyone else who wants to celebrate all things Michael Caine,

  1. You can review ANY film or TV show starring Michael Caine, including cameos as long as you mention the part of the film with his cameo AND include a video clip or picture of it. Or if you want to review his books, that’s ok with me too.
  2. I will allow three duplicates for each topic be it a movie, book or TV Show, but no more. I might be more lenient where books are to be reviewed as he hasn’t written as much.
  3. Review choices can be added as a comment on this page or you can contact me on my Contact Me page  – either way please add the name and URL of your blog along with your choice of movie/book or TV choice.
  4. Or if you want to write about Caine, tell me what your topic will be. I won’t accept posts that are uncomplimentary or respectful to this man and his life and work.
  5. Add your Twitter or Facebook pages so I can promote your post.
  6. You can also add podcasts on his work but only if you send me the podcast link by my Contact Me page.
  7. A full list of blogs, podcasters and review choices will be posted on a separate page and updated regularly.


A full list of Michael Caine’s movies can be found if you CLICK HERE and his Books and more… HERE

I’m choosing:

  1. LOVE this. Michael Caine is the best. Since you’re accepting three duplicates, could I also do Deathtrap?

    • I loved it as a child ha ha!!! But haven’t seen it in ages. I’m so glad you’re pleased with my choice!! It was either that or The Eagle Has Landed. I stand by my choice! 😘

    • I’d be worried if you picked anything else. The Eagle has Landed is a good choice – reviewed it myself – but this one so needs the EmmakWall treatment after that ace Mars Attacks post of yours.

  2. Hey Gill. Could I please change my entry? Instead of Zulu can I write about my five favourite Michael Caine performances? Maddy

Love your thoughts... but only if they are spoiler free!
