FlixChatter Review: LUCK (2022)

Luck has the distinction of being Apple TV's first animated feature, which is part of an exclusive deal with Skydance Animation.

Once in a while, a movie came along that made you willing to step out of your comfort zone. I've never actually seen any of the movies, not even the 1987 version with Arnold Schwarzenegger and former MN governator Jesse Ventura!

FlixChatter Review: Bullet Train (2022)

It looks like something out of a violent graphic novel, but it’s actually based on Kotoro Isaka’s Japanese best-selling novel with Japanese characters. When Hollywood bought the rights, of course the …
