FlixChatter Review: The Wolverine

That was the first time I ever saw Hugh Jackman and he's certainly the most intriguing character of the mutant ensemble. When the spin-off movie came along, it certainly wasn't off to a good start, though I …

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: R.I.P.D and interview w/ extra Tim Jacobs

Summer is a great time for action comedies!
