Mark & I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped us with our first Robert De Niro themed blogathon. We appreciate all the views, likes and comments from you all, and a special thank you must go to the talented writers who found the time to submit a review for our project.
We now have a special page with links for all the great reviews, so please give it a look and hunt out some thoughts you may have missed. Or go correct the fools who scored Raging Bull so low……
Once again, thank you all for making this project so much fun. I must apologise to Mark for making this blogathon last so long, or for making you do the majority of the work. As most of you know my time has been taken over by a beautiful new life into my world, and my blogging took a back seat. And to those reviewers whose work I took forever to post, thanks for being so patient. I hope it doesn’t put you off working with us again for our next blogathon (if Mark agrees to working with me again that is). This gif below is for you all 🙂

I’m a fan of director Robert Rodriguez so I had a sneaking suspicion that I would enjoy this. At the very least I knew I would love the soundtrack; you can add musician to Rodriguez’s laundry list of skills as he never fails to deliver pleasure to my ears with delicious mixes of mariachi and cool, cool guitar (his Grindhouse Blues track from Planet Terror being probably my favourite). Throw in some gratuitous violence and I’m more than game to sit back and let this one envelope me for a couple of hours.
Review by Mark Walker of Marked Movies
As a co-host for this Blogathon, I like to begin by stating – for the record – that there will be no bias from either myself or Tyson regarding the movies of DeNiro. We may be massive fans of the actor, himself, but there’s no denying that some of his films just don’t cut it. As I have seen a great number of DeNiro’s movies, I was, unfortunately, left with ones I’d rather avoid but in keeping with the rules of the Blogathon I still had to choose. I did, however, hope against hope that I might have misjudged and that I’d still be treated to something unexpectedly good. Alas, my preconceived opinions proved to be correct. This is, quite possibly, the very worst cinematic experience of my life.
