FlixChatter Review: DUMBO (2019)

It seems that every year now we'll be treated to a live action of Disney's animated movies. Now, I actually quite like Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, Jungle Book, and I'm curiously anticipating Aladdin. As for Dumbo, I actually don't remember much of the original. I only watched a scene of Dumbo and his mother …

FlixChatter Review: HOTEL MUMBAI (2019)

When I first saw the trailer for HOTEL MUMBAI, I was definitely intrigued despite not remembering much of the actual events that happened in 2008. I don't usually go for dramatizations of true events, especially when it comes to disaster/calamity. Yet there's something about this one that appealed to me. It opens with the attackers …

FlixChatter Review: Shazam! (2019)

There's such a huge anticipation over this movie, and the early reviews have been giddily-positive. I have to say I was caught in a bit of Shazam! fever as well after seeing the second trailer, which promises a boisterous good time. This movie is an origin story of the DC superhero that's originally named Captain …

Happy Monday everyone! It's been a pretty hectic week last week with freelance gigs, script updates, etc. There's a hint of Spring (finally!) after such a long and pretty miserable Winter, in fact, we pretty much hibernated most weekends the past couple of months. Well, that gave us a chance to catch up on a …

Directed By: Todd Strauss-Schulson Written By: Dana Fox, Erin Cardillo, Katie Silberman Runtime: 1 hour 29 minutes Isn’t It Romantic is a masterpiece.

FlixChatter Review: CAPTAIN MARVEL (2019)

I think it goes without saying that Captain Marvel is an important milestone. It's not the first movie featuring a female superhero, but it's the first out of the gate out of the behemoth Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Honestly, I try to tune out the buzz around this movie, something that's getting increasingly difficult in …

FlixChatter Review: TRIPLE FRONTIER (2019)

As of last October, Netflix began offering press screenings for its original movies. Yet for some reason, this is the first time I'm seeing a Netflix Original Movie on the big screen. The tile seems rather generic, but the term Triple Frontier actually refers to a tri-border area along the junction of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, …
