Coming Soon Update

Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve written a few posts about movies coming soon for a certain month. They would mostly consist of listing different films releasing in a certain month that I was planning to review and the weekends in which I would do it. I would do this in advance so there was always a chance for things to change so from now on instead of posting these monthly, I will do this weekly on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Seeing that I’ve already posted something for September and October, there will be some repetition. I also know I posted 2 reviews (Everest and War Room) which were technically on the 22nd but this time I will ignore that. If I miss a movie on the Friday, then I will try to get to it on the following Tuesday.
