BLOGATHON… Announcing the Jeff Goldblum Blogathon


So announcing a long awaited, Blogathon tribute to Jeff Goldblum…


With a joint blogathon collaboration with one of Jeff’s greatest fans, the lovely  Emma K Wall.


Jeff Goldblum – Top 30 Highest Rated Movies, Top 10 Charts


In the late 1980s, I first watched Jeff Goldblum on TV in The Big Chill (1983), a comedy drama movie. Goldblum starring with a 1980s dream ensemble cast and plot for those who graduated before the Brat Pack. The Big Chill‘s cast includes Tom Berenger, William Hurt, Kevin Kline, Glenn Close, Meg Tilly and Jobeth Williams.

Goldblum played a journalist who reunites with his old friends from his university days at a friend’s funeral. The friends all hanging out at a friend’s house reminisce, rebond and some find unexpected love.

Not much later, I spotted him at the cinema in a Richard Curtis comedy movie The Tall Guy (1989). Here Goldblum played an unsuccessful American actor who falls for a nurse. This is a boy meets girl film where an unsuccessful actor meets a nurse, unsuccessful actor bonks nurse, unsuccessful actor dates nurse, actor becomes successful in The Elephant Man musical and the rest is probably as you predicted.

Both times Goldblum made an impact on me, with his unconventional quirky looks combined with his unique gangly and geeky way of being. After the recent demise of the Groovy Goldblumers Friday Follow Twitter tag, it now seems only right to reignite that torch and celebrate all things, Jeff Goldblum.

I’m now officially inviting you to the Jeff Goldblum Blogathon which will be held on the 15th, 16th and 17th of August 2019. As ALL JEFF GOLDBLUM BLOGATHON ENTRANTS… Due to popular demand, Emma and I are running this event for one extra day!

With the final day for any late-comers due to time differences, illness or just wanting to be fashionably late. My wonderful co-host, is (and only could be) Emma K Wall, from Emma Wall Explains it all.

You are welcome to review anything about this talented man in his work as an actor, musician and in any of his on-screen performances.

  1. What a good idea for a blogathon! I saw Jurassic Park for the first time last year (yes, you read that right) and I reviewed the film on my blog as well. When I saw the movie, Dr. Ian Malcolm instantly became one of my new favorite characters! May I write a list of reasons why he’s my favorite character from Jurassic Park?

  2. I would like to write on his role in Thor: Ragnarock, and Transylvania 6500 and would love to record a podcast episode on Jeff Goldblum for Cinema Recall podcast. Looking for guests.

  3. Mrs. J-Dub is a major Jeff Goldblum fan, so I probably have to join this blog-a-thon or I may be in a bit of difficulty. So, if you don’t let me do 1983’s “The Right Stuff” I may need to sleep on your couch for a few days.

    Be warned, I’m a frightfully large man who snores like a congested grizzly bear, so keep that in mind 🙂

  4. Hey Gill! Sorry for the late reply! Summer has kept me busy! Is it alright if I do an “essence of Jeff” so to speak. The more I see Jeff Goldblum the more I see him as a ‘meme’ so to speak. This isn’t to be disrespectful, more so….nowadays Jeff isn’t necessarily known for his song anymore.

    I’d like to discuss how and why it got to this point, and how Jeff has made the most of it. (I.e: commercials, talk show appearances, etc.)

    Thanks again!

  5. Won’t be joining this one, but it sounds really interesting.

    Hint, hint… if you’re looking for an interestingly different Goldblum topic, try his stint on Law&Order: Criminal Intent. Love that show and he had some really intense episodes there.
