FlixChatter Review – Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Avengers: Infinity War. It’s not just a movie… it’s an event.

FlixChatter Review – Ready Player One (2018)

Directed By: Steven Spielberg Written By: Zak Penn & Ernest Cline Runtime: 2hrs 20min Before seeing Ready Player One, I had to remind myself to judge it as a stand-alone movie rather than a book adaptation.
