Five Movies. Five Words – Vol. 5

Well, it's been more than a year since I did the last edition of Five Movies in Five Words. Seems that the only blog series I managed to keep up with is Five for the Fifth 🙂 I really should do this more often, maybe a few times a year, as it's a fun challenge to …

FlixChatter Review: Moonlight (2016)

It's been nearly a month since I saw Moonlight, yet I still constantly think about it. I had heard the buzz coming from Sundance and TIFF prior to its regional premiere at TCFF, and the premise of a coming-of-age story spanning three time periods intrigues me. The film is written and directed by Barry Jenkins, …

Guest Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (2016)

It’s going to be hard for me not to turn this into a fifty-page essay, because I am an enormous Harry Potter fan. I have been since I was ten years old. I’ve re-read all the books more times than I can remember, I wrote so much embarrassingly bad fan-fiction as a preteen, and I’ve …

A Thanksgiving Post: 24 cinematic things I’m thankful for in 2016

To all my friends celebrating Thanksgiving today… I hope that you’re all enjoying yourselves, whether it's time spent together with family/friends or just chillin' with your loved ones (like my hubby and I). It's nice to be able to sleep in today and going to dinner/movies later today. To those in other parts of the …

FlixChatter Review: Doctor Strange (2016)

I have to admit I wasn't really anticipating this movie at all. I wasn't familiar with this character at all and honestly, I have grown a bit tired of seeing Benedict Cumberbatch, though I did like him before he was super famous from playing Sherlock. Now it's no fault of his but I tend to …

Week In Review: Hunt For the Wilderpeople + Loving + The Little Prince

How's your weekend everyone? It's been a while since I did a roundup post, but I figure it's a good way for me to ease my way into blogging again. It's been a particularly gratifying week as I saw two of my highly-anticipated films, Loving and Hunt For the Wilderpeople. As Winter has officially arrived, …

Guest Review: Bleed For This (2016)

I was a little nervous to write this review. My first two posts for FlixChatter (Ouija and The Eyes Of My Mother) were for horror movies-a genre I enjoy and feel comfortable writing about- so being assigned a movie outside of my wheelhouse was a little daunting, especially considering this one is a boxing movie. …

Scene spotlight: INCEPTION – ‘You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger darling’

Hi everyone! My blogging break has been longer than expected, but for some reason I haven't got the energy to write reviews. I actually tried to write my review of Doctor Strange and Jack Reacher yesterday but never finished it. I guess my heart just wasn't in it lately… I've been focusing on other things …

FlixChatter Review: Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

It’s been ten years since Mel Gibson's last directed a film; the violent adventure Apocalypto was a mild success for the controversial actor and director. Many thought that film would be a comeback for Gibson, but then his personal life took another controversial hit and he’s been out of the limelight for a few years. …
