  • Genre Grandeur Reviews (British Thriller Movies) – 9  Thanks again to Emma for choosing such a great and diverse Genre for January


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


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

BTW,  Genre Grandeur for February (chosen by Justine) will be Coming of Age movies, so send me your review of your favorite Coming of Age movie to before 22th Feb in order to take part!   Try to think out of the box!

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!

Also, I’d like to remind everyone about my upcoming Meathead March blogathon devoted to all Rob Reiner directed movies (there are 17 of them).

There is still time to sign up and get me your reviews
