Genre Grandeur

Kim @ Tranquil Dreams reblogged this and commented:

Check out my review on Young and Dangerous for MovieRob's Genre Grandeur in the month of June. This time, our genre is comic book or superhero movies. Since everyone already had their share of superheros review, I figured I'd go a little different and share one that may not be the best in quality but its great to me because this series has been such a success. Maybe I'll do as I did for Infernal Affairs and have a little marathon once I gather all the movies ;). Remember to check out the other reviews from other bloggers for this genre and next month's genre will be on alien. If you have any review you'd like to share, remember to send it to Rob. I know I'll think something up :) Thanks to Rob for putting this together. As usual, I had a lot of fun revisiting this one.
