Top 10 Recap: Movie reviews’ popularity endured as new features rose up the ranks. The review for the mystery drama 'The Girl on the Train' soared to the top of the list, making its second consecutive appearance in the Most-Read’s Top 5.

It did so with much greater reader interest than it initially received, closely following its theatrical release. Despite a slow start, 'The Girl on the Train' is already one of the Most-Read reviews of the year on Eclectic Pop.

The reviews for 'White Bird in a Blizzard', 'Disorder', and 'Demolition', all repeated, along with the Top 10 Most-Read list for August/September 2016. 

New in November was the first ‘Let’s Talk About…’ feature since the beginning of the year, January 2016 to be exact. The ‘Entertainment Inquiry’ also returned with its first new entry in 2 months. Entertainment Inquiry #8 focused exclusively on The CW’s ‘Reign’, answering questions from fans of the show on Twitter about Season 4. 

Fun Stat Facts:

-The latest ‘Let’s Talk About…’ is the only article on the list to exclusively discuss sports (ice dancing).

-50% of the Top 10 is comprised of movie reviews

#9: Movie Review | It Follows (2014) – NEW in November









Content Notes for December:
-The special 'Game of Thrones' edition of the Entertainment Inquiry that was originally planned for November will hopefully materialize in December.

-The Best of 2016 lists will arrive in either late December, or early January. Based on the results of a reader poll on Twitter, the 'Best of' list will continue in its usual fashion.

-Having just recently watched BBC’s sensational 2004 miniseries 'North & South' for the first time, expect a feature on it soon. The mini is currently streaming on Netflix and it is worth the watch. It is one of the best miniseries, I have ever seen.

As always, thanks to everyone who has been reading and sharing Eclectic Pop’s content on social media. It means the world!

Happy Holidays!

Movie Review | It Follows (2014)

When a young woman (Maika Monroe) contracts a communicably transmitted apparition, her, her sister and their friends join forces to outrun the deadly specter.

Opening on a scene depicting what will happen if they fail, writer/director David Robert Mitchell, sets the stage for a high stakes game of keep-away. Set in an unknown time period that is clearly not the past, Jay is just a regular young adult before all hell breaks loose.

Movie Review | The Conjuring 2 (2016)

Director James Wan returns behind the camera, while actors Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprise their roles in front, for this sequel to the 2013 smash.

As a lot of sequels do, “The Conjuring 2” leaves America for Europe on its second go-around. So our story picks up in 1977 north London, where a single mom (Frances O’Connor) and her four children are besieged by a poltergeist.

Movie Review | Testament of Youth (2015)

In "My Back Pages", Bob Dylan eloquently reflects on the humbling experience of looking back on his younger years through a lived in life's perspective. The lesson of youth's unstoppable confidence learning the immeasurable wisdom of age's caution is an invaluable insight “Testament of Youth” readily shares in common.

Director James Kent’s adaptation of Vera Brittain’s landmark memoir of the same name rivetingly portrays the events she chronicled; the ones that would come to shake and shape her life.
