Genre Grandeur: Romeo + Juliet (1996)

The theme of the Genre Grandeur for the month of June over at the wonderful Movierob was high school/teen romance movies.

Genre Grandeur: Solaris (1972)

I chose to watch Solaris (1972), a Tarkovsky classic. Check out the rest of the films for September’s Genre […]

There have been lots of amazing reviews […]
