September Blind Spot: Double Indemnity (1944)

This is the second Billy Wilder film on my Blindspot [first one was The Apartment] and the fourth film of his I've seen, which happens to be the fourth film he directed. It's also the first Barbara Stanwyck movie I saw as well as my first viewing of Fred MacMurray in the lead role. Ok …

FlixChatter Review: The Equalizer (2014)

With the comic book based films dominating the box office, the trend in Hollywood of turning old TV shows into films has died down the last decade or so. I remember back in the 90s, there were new movies based on TV shows coming out every year, Mission: Impossible, The Fugitive, The Brady Bunch Movie …

Music Break: Favorite Music Scores from BATMAN Screen Adaptations

Happy Wednesday everyone! Inspired by the GOTHAM pilot on Monday night, I thought I'd do a Batman-themed Music Break today. Before I do that, here's my two cents on the show: #GothamPremiere's not perfect but I'd still be up for more #GothamOnFox. We'll see how long it'll keep me tuning in tho. — FlixChatter (@FlixChatter) September 23, …

Question of the week: Which casting news are you excited about from the past few weeks?

Hello everyone! I'm planning of launching a Casting News Roundup series in the coming weeks, something I'd update a couple times a month. I even made the banner already 😉 Casting can make or break a film and to me, casting is a big part of whether I want to see a certain film or not. Of course …

FlixChatter Review – The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them

It seems that a straight love-themed drama is hard to come in Hollywood. Instead we see romance as part of another genre, i.e. romantic comedy, romantic thriller, romantic sci-fi and so on. It’s even more rare to see a love story in a three-film format, not a trilogy mind-you, but the same story told from …

A Well Executed Blast From The Past: The Prime Gig (2000)

I've allowed myself a few evenings of vegging out and catching up on the notable offerings from IFC (Independent Film Channel). In lieu of multiple series winding down to their …

Interview with Black Sails’ actor Sean Cameron Michael (aka Richard Guthrie)

As most of you know, I'm a big fan of Starz's latest flagship show Black Sails, which has been renewed for a second (possibly third?) season before its initial season was done, yay! I was fortunate enough to chat via email with one of the cast members, Sean Cameron Michael, a South African-based actor who played Richard Guthrie in the series. I …

A lovely weekend in the Big Apple + Thoughts on 2014 Les Miz on Broadway

Hi everyone! I'm back. Well, s-l-0-w-l-y. I was blissfully *disconnected* for about 5 days, other than checking news on my iPhone occasionally, I didn't write or visit any blogs at all. It felt pretty good actually, I guess I was feeling a bit burned out so that was a much-needed break. Well, I didn't see …
