FlixChatter Review: Thirteen Lives (2022)

I still remember when I first heard the news back in 2018 that captivated the world. It was during the Summer time when 12 soccer players, aged 11-16, and their assistant soccer coach decided to enter the Tham Luang cave after their football practice. I'd think it was a nice way to cool off after …

Trailer Spotlight: The Banshees of Inisherin with Brendan Gleeson + Colin Farrell

As Summer is winding down, I'm definitely looking forward to Fall movies! Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell reunite in Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin since In Bruges (2008). I love In Bruges which inspired my trip with my hubby in 2014. It's been four years since McDonagh won an Oscar for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, …

FlixChatter Review: Bullet Train (2022)

Bullet Train is billed as an action comedy where a down-on-his-luck hitman boards a train filled with fellow assassins whose missions are somehow interconnected. It looks like something out of a violent graphic novel, but it’s actually based on Kotoro Isaka’s Japanese best-selling novel with Japanese characters. When Hollywood bought the rights, of course the …

FlixChatter Review: Vengeance (2022)

At first I almost brushed this off because of that clichéd title, but I was curious when I learned that it's The Office-alum B.J. Novak’s directorial debut. He also wrote the screenplay and plays the lead role, quite the triple threat. Vengeance is part fish-out-of-water dark comedy and part detective story, which in and of …

FlixChatter Review: Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris (2022)

When I first saw the trailer for this movie a few months prior to its release, I was immediately swept up by the premise and its leading lady. It’s about time the venerable Lesley Manville gets the lead role, and Mrs Harris is tailor-made for her.  I had no idea this movie is based on …

FlixChatter Review: The Gray Man (2022)

Another week, another big, expensive but soulless Netflix blockbuster. It’s no wonder they’re losing subscribers by the thousands with this kind of quantity over quality mentality. It doesn’t help that the streaming subscription is getting more and more expensive, it’ll cost us $15.49 per month in August. Undoubtedly Netflix is seeking a lucrative action franchise to …
