Would you believe that this month is the first anniversary of this blog? Well, technically June would be the anniversary since that was when I started writing my first review…actually July would be the anniversary since that was when my review of Secret of Kells was published but you know what? The idea of this blog was born in May so I’m counting these following months as my anniversary celebration! (Hey, if Disneyland can have its milestone party last an entire year, why can’t I keep mine going for three months?)

Shortly after this post, I’ll be making a special announcement, so stay tuned for it.

And now, your May review:
