Thanks to all my loyal followers for helping make this all happen!
BTW, Genre Grandeur for September (chosen by Sherise) will be Films from the 70’s, so send me your review of your favorite one(s) to 70’firstname.lastname@example.org before 25th September in order to take part! Try to think out of the box!
Looking forward to seeing what you all have in mind!
- A few months ago, 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 August, I watched the following movies at Darren’s request for the challenge:
Of these movies, my favorite was West of Memphis (2012)
Thanks Darren for recommending all of these for me 🙂
- This month, I co-hosted the Argumentative August Blogathon with Ryan of Ten Stars or Less. We had a total of 52 reviews! If you missed any of them, check them out here.
- In October, Darren of Movie Reviews 101 and I will be running a Stephen King blogathon where each of us have decided to review 31 of his adaptations. We invite anyone interested to join in on the fun. For more info, click here.
Hope you all enjoy it!
