FlixChatter Review: Hell or High Water (2016)

When I first saw the trailer of Hell or High Water a couple of months ago, I thought for sure it’s going to be one of those late summer action films that would be shown at theaters one weekend and disappeared the next. Well as it turns out, it is one of the best reviewed …

Top 10 Favorite Movies of the FIRST HALF of 2016

This list is long overdue. I should've posted it sometime in July, but oh well, better late than never. This list only consist of films released between January - June 30, 2016.

Ranking the BOURNE villains – from worst to best

Every hero requires a villain and the Jason Bourne franchise has plenty of villains to root against. I do want to see him go up against other groups of villains though, as opposed to just CIA bigwigs and their hired assassins. Maybe for the next sequel, Bourne could take down some other group of baddies. In …

FlixChatter Review: Anthropoid (2016)

I love historical-based films that really made you want to read more about the actual events. Anthropoid, based on the true story of Operation Anthropoid to assassinate SS General Reinhard Heydrich, is one such film. WWII history buffs would surely know about the 'Butcher of Prague' monster that was Heydrich. He's known as the main architect …

FlixChatter Review: Pete’s Dragon (2016)

I always try to keep a neutral expectation going into a film, and it's a lot easier when I didn't know much about that particular movie. I had no idea that Pete's Dragon was a remake of the 1977 movie until days before I saw it, and I didn't see the original (which is apparently …

Indie Spotlight: I Am Not A Serial Killer (2016) & interview w/ casting director Kirsten Gregerson

I first heard about this project last year when my friend and fellow Twin Cities Film Fest staff member Kirsten Gregerson mentioned it to me. She had worked as a casting director for the independent thriller, director by Irish filmmaker Billy O'Brien, with Christopher Lloyd and Max Records (from Where the Wild Things Are) in the …
