FlixChatter Review: The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022)

Sometimes a brilliant idea looks good on paper but doesn’t translate well to the screen. The script of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent was on the Black List and writer/director Tom Gormican somehow managed to convince Nicolas Cage to play a fictionalized version of himself. The result is a wildly entertaining & hilarious action-comedy …

FlixChatter Review: THE BATMAN (2022)

Even in a saturated comic-book movie market, I find it impossible NOT to be excited for The Batman. I love what Matt Reeves did with the Planet of the Apes trilogy, somehow he could make an oft-told subject matter feels fresh and new again. It’s already well-known even for casual Batman fans that Gotham City …

FlixChatter Review: THE TENDER BAR (2021)

This is the third film by George Clooney I’ve seen so far, and also his second collaboration with Ben Affleck after they both produced the Oscar-winning ARGO. Both are actors who have become terrific directors in their own right… they have also played Batman on screen, surely an amusing anecdote for superhero fans. Growing up …

FlixChatter Review: DON’T LOOK UP (2021)

In the climate we live in today, with global warming, political unrest AND pandemic wreaking havoc practically everywhere, do we need an apocalyptic movie about an extinction level event? I actually have been avoiding depressing apocalyptic movies these days, though sometimes I’m curious to see something because of the cast. Well, Adam McKay’s Don’t Look …
