In addition to Genre Grandeur, I added a new feature this month called Genre Guesstimation where I review other movies in the monthly GG in order to see whether I think they deserve to e part of my favorites in the given genre!


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

BTW,  Genre Grandeur for November (chosen by Kieron of What About the Twinkie?) will be 80’s Action movies, so send me your review to before 25th Nov in order to take part!

Last month, I announced my upcoming “007 December Blogathon” that I’m gonna be running in December. Take a look at the list and start choosing a movie or movies that you’d like to review, then let me know as soon as you can so I can plan accordingly. I’d like the reviews by the 27th of November.

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!
