MAY 2016 Viewing Recap + Movie of the Month

Time for another monthly recap, folks. Well, May is actually not a really great movie-watching month for me after a very busy April. I was pretty busy with my script and also my trip to Montréal/Québec City took up a lot of my time. But hey, I did manage to see Captain America: Civil War twice, and plenty of …

Hello everyone! I'm back from my Québec trip… well actually I've been back since Friday night but I'm just too tired to blog. I actually didn't even visit my blog or anyone else's during my week-long vacation, though I did fit in some time to work on my script here and there. Monday is Memorial …

FlixChatter Review: Love & Friendship (2016)

You already know I LOVE period dramas and I adore Jane Austen. This was one of the Sundance films I couldn't wait to see and it absolutely didn't disappoint! Love & Friendship is an adaptation of Austen’s short epistolary novel Lady Susan that was published posthumously in 1871. Writer/director Whit Stillman changed its name but the focus is still on Lady Susan, played …

FlixChatter Review: The Lobster (2016)

When I first heard of the premise of this film, I was already sold. Then I saw the trailer and I knew it'd be a bizarre film, but nothing could prepare me for how bizarre it turned out to be. The film is set in a dystopian near future where it's unlawful to be single according to …

FlixChatter Review: Sing Street (2016)

Ahhhh... the 80s. Duran Duran, A-Ha, Spandau Ballet, The Cure, etc. I grew up with the bands featured in this movie, which adds the enjoyable quotient tenfold for me. I discovered John Carney a bit late as I saw Begin Again first a couple of years ago, then rented Once after that. I absolutely loved …

Happy Wednesday everybody! I'm still high from seeing the first look of my dahling Sam Riley in Ben Wheatley's new movie (more of that below). It's been ages since I see anything new with him on social media… ah the peril of loving an underrated actor. But y'know what they say, you can't choose who …

FlixChatter Review: The Invitation (2016)

Director Karyn Kusama got the attention of Hollywood executives when she made her first film, Girlfight, it also launched the career of Michelle Rodriguez. But like many of other young filmmakers, Kusama made the mistake of accepting a big studio film for her sophomore project and the result was disastrous. Her second film Aeon Flux …
