Last day of the month already and I must say I'm glad January is over. It's been one of the coldest Winter months yet with up to a week (maybe more) of subzero temps! I hope only one more month left of this brutal frigid weather. As is customary for the beginning of the year …

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: British Crime Drama ‘All Things To All Men’

A new contractor at my office who just started last week made an observation the other day when he stopped by my cube. "Are you a bit of an Anglophile?" I asked him why he thought so, then he pointed out to my Skyfall poster, London desktop pics, and other British-related memorabilia all over my …

Happy Monday all! It's been a quiet weekend for me, I barely went out on Sunday as we've got everything old man Winter has got to offer.

007 Chatter: Bond 50th Anniversary Minimalist Posters

Action/Comedy Weekend – The Living Daylights, The IT Crowd & Dredd

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day! It's cool that it also happens to be Obama's second presidential inauguration day. I posted two MLK-related movie posts [here and here] two years in a row to celebrate our hero of the civil rights movement. I don't know if any of those films are going to be made …

Movie Jail Relay Race – 12th Round

You've probably seen this Relay Race been going around in the past few months. I love this brilliant idea, courtesy of my pals Nostra and Terrence which started back in late November.

FlixChatter Review: The Last Stand

Arnold Schwarzenegger never seems to get tired of saying his iconic Terminator line. But after some petty cameos in two Expendables movies, this time he's really back. It's not some ubiquitous revenge thriller thankfully, but in an action comedy where he unabashedly makes fun of his old, beat-up self to great effect. When I first …
