November Genre Grandeur over at Movie Rob

Those of you who follow the very prolific Movie Rob will know that he picks a genre every month an invites everyone to join in with reviews that typify that genre. This month I was given the great and most auspicious honour of choosing that genre… and I have gone with “alternative romances”.  I am not the world’s biggest fan of a typical Hollywood romance but I do enjoy films that explore the concept of romantic love from a more unusual angle. If you’re not sure what that might mean, here’s a post I did a while ago about some of my favourites.

I would love it if anyone decided to join in. You can send your submissions to Rob by the 25th of November at  Try to think out of the box!

I will be reviewing:

Closer (2004)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

(500) Days of Summer (2009)

Warm Bodies (2013)
