FlixChatter Review: Million Dollar Arm (2014)

We all know Disney is capable of creating compelling stories, and Million Dollar Arm is no exception. While some may prematurely write this off as just another sports flick, they’d be missing the opportunity to see a fun, light-hearted film. Million Dollar Arm is based on a true story about two young Indian teenagers who …

Question of the Week: What’s Your Favorite Movie Set In Paris?

Happy midweek, everyone! Pardon me for being extra chirpy today as it's only two days away before my hubby & I are off to Europe. As I've mentioned here, we're going to Amsterdam - Bruges - Paris to be exact, but we're spending the most time in Paris. We're renting an apartment in the 15th arrondissement area …

May 2014 Blind Spot Film: The Apartment (1960)

The Apartment was supposed to be my April Blindspot movie, but I mistakenly thought I had Some Like It Hot on my list instead. Surely it wasn't at all a waste that I got to watch another Billy Wilder movie, but I have to admit I was not as enamored with that one as most do. The Apartment …

As a big fan of period dramas, I've been looking forward to this film since last November when I first heard about it. Well, seven months later I finally got to see it and it's certainly worth the wait. The film opens with a Royal Navy Admiral (Matthew Goode) picking up a young mixed-race girl from …

Top Ten Films of the 90s – by Ted Saydalavong

The 90s was the dawn of heavily usage of CGI in films, bloated budgets and digital sound in movie theaters. Batman Returns was the first film to include Dolby Digital in its soundtrack and Jurassic Park was the first film to have used DTS soundtrack. I saw those two films in theater and that’s when …

FlixChatter Review: LOCKE

When I heard the premise of Locke, I was immediately intrigued by the idea of a one-man show in a confined environment. I knew it'd take the right actor, a substantially charismatic one, to pull off this role. Obviously the script and direction is just as crucial, and fortunately, those three elements work efficiently for …
