    1. Yep, and I’m actually typing up the review of it right now! It probably won’t be posted for a while, though, so you still have plenty of time to watch before we compare notes haha.


      1. After I finish playing catch-up this week with baseball films, I’ll watch The Crawling Eye, then I’ll wait to post my review when I see yours go up! And then we’ll remember this as the first of what will become a global ‘Crawling Eye-O-Thon’ with other movie review blogs!


        1. I’d love to see what other bloggers think of it! Right now it’s on the schedule for June 5 which is waaaaay in advance, but I’ll be moving things around. (Kind of nuts that I’ve drafted enough reviews to get me through april, may and half of June!) I’ll let you know when the date is finalized so we can coordinate them, haha.


            1. I just watch way too many movies, haha. Helps that I have some automatic posts scheduled, too, like these monthly wrap-ups and the “What to Watch” posts. I was still posting reviews from films I watched in 2012 well into the beginning of February, though!


              1. Well, we kinda do the same thing here…sit on reviews for a bit until one or two of the other DK reviewers can watch the film and write it up. Single reviews go up when I know no one else will watch the film, or at least won’t have access to it for a long time. In the end, it’s usually up to me to add that second or third review anyway.
