MovieRob Monthly Roundup – April 2017


Hi 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 – 50 (click here to see all of April’s Reviews)
  • Number of new movies viewed for the first time – 27

How I rated the movies this month:

  • Oscar Worthy – 12
  • Globe Worthy – 25
  • BAFTA Worthy – 9
  • Razzie Worthy – 4
  • Longest Movie watched –  The Dark Knight (2008) – 152 Minutes
  • Shortest Movie watched – Death Mills (1945) – 22 Minutes
      • Worst (or dumbest) movie watched this month
    • Kill List (2011)

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 Vern of the Video Vortex. We will be reviewing our favorite Graphic Novels that have been adapted for the screen.

The one caveat is that it has to be based on a book that has been published.

Example The Killing Joke would be acceptable because it’s based on an actual graphic novel.  The Dark Knight would not because it’s based on characters and there was no book before the movie.

Here is what appears to be the official/unofficial list of film adaptations of Graphic Novels

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of May by sending them to Vernsworld@movierob.net

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

-Rob
