Thanks again to  S.G. for choosing such a great and diverse Genre for May


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 June (chosen by Kim) will be teen/high school romance movies, so send me your review of your favorite one to before 25th June 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 last month called Temporal Top Ten and I have been presenting you all with my favorite movies from randomly chosen years.  To read more about this series, check it out here.  In May, I featured another 10 top ten lists and I will continue to feature two new lists every week one on Friday and one on Saturday respectively.

I also want to thank once again all 30 of my friends who contributed to my Movies From the Hat 2 Series.  I really enjoyed exploring these movies that you all recommended.

Hope you all enjoy it!

Have a great month!
