Thanks to all my loyal followers for helping make this all happen!

BTW,  Genre Grandeur for September (chosen by Tom) will be Space movies, so send me your review to before 25th Sep in order to take part! (Try to think out of the box, it doesn’t have to be the normal generic concept of a space movie)

I also plan on revealing later today my plans for my upcoming 1000th review, so watch this space for something that I want your participation for.  I’m very excited about the idea and hopefully you will also all like it.

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!
