Thanks again to Kim for choosing such a great and diverse Genre for June

 

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 July (chosen by Reut) will be Dark Comedies, so send me your review of your favorite one to darkcom@movierob.net before 25th July in order to take part!   Try to think out of the box!

Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!

This month, I initiated a new feature where Darren of Movie Reviews 101 and I challenge each other every week to watch a movie of our choice that the other has never seen.

In June, I watched the following movies:

  1. Heaven is Real (2013)
  2. Brothers Bloom, The (2008)
  3. Deep Rising (1998)
  4. The Cove (2009)

of these movies, my favorite was The Cove (2009)

Thanks Darren for recommending all of these for me 🙂

In August, I will be co-hosting the Argumentative August Blogathon with Ryan of Ten Stars or Less.  There are still titles available for whomever is interested. Check out the list here!

Hope you all enjoy it!

Finally, for those of you who haven’t yet noticed, I have succumbed to peer pressure and decided to join twitter, I can now be found at @RealMovieRob

Have a great month!

-Rob
