When you order an Uber on any random day, you hope to be able to get from point A to point B in the fastest possible way, and the Uber driver hopes to get a high rating on the trip from the passenger. Well, Stu (Kumail Nanjiani), the Uber driver in the movie Stuber, actually …

I feel like once July 4th is behind us, we're already more than halfway done with Summer 😦 Well, I actually didn't really do much movie/tv watching around the Fourth weekend as I prefer to make the most of Minnesota Summer outside. I did watch quite a few things …

FlixChatter Review: YESTERDAY (2019)

I love The Beatles. In fact, my record collection (to quote Twin Cities label legend Peter Jesperson) begins with The Beatles and then goes from A-Z. During a company outing I struck up the subject by asking my coworkers: “You guys like The Beatles?” Their answer: “Who doesn’t like The Beatles?” And indeed, with Danny …

FlixChatter Review – MIDSOMMAR (2019)

Written & Directed by: Ari Aster When I heard Ari Aster had a new horror movie coming out, I was excited, especially since he described it as a companion piece to last year's Hereditary.

FlixChatter Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Can't believe it's been seven years ago that I reviewed the Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-man, which I barely even remember now so clearly it wasn't all that amazing. I think I was mostly sentimental as I was at Comic-Con Hall H when Garfield first revealed that he was playing the role (those with eagle …

FlixChatter Review: TOY STORY 4 (2019)

When Pixar Animation Studios released the animated feature Toy Story on November 22, 1995, it probably could not have imagined in its wildest dreams that the animation studio would be acquired by Walt Disney Studios, and would be releasing its fourth Toy Story movie, Toy Story 4, after the first three films received universal acclaim …

FlixChatter Review: LATE NIGHT (2019)

I watched Dame Emma Thompson on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she described this movie as a science-fiction given that her character is a late-night talk show host. Ba da bing! She definitely has a point there, a jab at the establishment she delivered rather stealthily the only way she could. Thompson's character, …
