The Goldblumathon is Here!

Who repelled an alien invasion, armed only with a Macintosh Powerbook?

Who was predestined to play Ichabod Crane?

Who fought off Red Lectroids from Planet 10?

Who made being a geeky scientist tampering with the laws of nature look cool?

Who personally supervised the construction of Stonehenge?

Okay, maybe Jeff Goldblum can’t claim bragging rights to the last one, but he’s performed many other amazing cinematic feats during his four-decade career.  After weeks of planning, catastrophizing and self-flagellating, the Goldblumathon has arrived to celebrate Hollywood’s most underappreciated and consistently entertaining actors.  A tip of my virtual hat goes out to everyone who contributed to this blogathon.  I look forward to reading all of your posts over the next few days.  Extra special thanks to the fine folks of Two Guys, One Quip and Classic Movie Hub for the last-minute plugs.  Your kindness knows no bounds. 

In the list below, you’ll find a nice representation of Goldblum’s resume, from tentpole flicks such as Jurassic Park, to cult favorites like The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai – Across the Eighth Dimension, and lesser known films, such as Tenspeed and Brownshoe.  I’ll be updating the links frequently, so please check back often.
