  • Genre Grandeur Reviews (Dystopian Movies) – 18  Thanks again to James for choosing such a great and diverse Genre for April

 

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 May (chosen by S.G.) will be fantasy/sci-fi animated movies (non-Disney or Pixar), so send me your review of your favorite one to animated@movierob.net before 25th May in order to take part!   Try to think out of the box!

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!

I have also inaugurated a new feature this month called Temporal Top Ten and I will be presenting you all with my favorite movies from randomly chosen years.  To read more about this series, check it out here.  In April, I featured 15 top ten lists and I will continue to feature two new lists every week one on Friday and one on Saturday respectively

Hope you all enjoy it!

Have a great month!

-Rob
