MovieRob Monthly Roundup – January 2017

movierobsHi All!

In continuing with this feature, here is a quick roundup on my reviews of this past month – this is a way you can possibly catch up on reviews or announcements that you perhaps missed.

So here it is: 

  • Number of Movies reviewed – 89 (click here to see all of January’s Reviews)
  • Number of new movies viewed for the first time – 62

How I rated the movies this month:

  • Oscar Worthy – 39
  • Globe Worthy – 26
  • BAFTA Worthy -19
  • Razzie Worthy – 5
      • Worst (or dumbest) movie watched this month
    • The Emigrants (1971)

In addition to Genre Grandeur, I run a feature 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!

BTW, next month’s Genre has been chosen by Sean of  We will be reviewing our favorite Nautical Films.

Loosely defined as anything taking place in, on or under the sea or heavily involving the sea.

Representative examples might include stuff like Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Mutiny on the Bounty, The Hunt For Red October, The Enemy Below, Damn the Defiant!, Cast Away, that sort of thing.

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of Feb by sending them to

Try to think out of the box! Great choice Sean!

December 1st was exactly 89 days before the 89th Annual Oscars on the 26th Feb.  I therefore decided to start two new series to coincide with the countdown to what will hopefully be a historic night.

I am now 62 days into both of my new series and loving doing them.
