FlixChatter Review: The Shape of Water (2017)

Once in a blue moon I fell in love for a film just from the trailer. It happened with The Shape of Water sometime last Fall, but it took a few months before I finally saw it. Forbidden love stories are my thing, but this isn't just a typical star-crossed lovers. Guillermo del Toro created a romance …

FlixChatter Review: The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

The moment I saw the trailer for this months ago I was immediately sold. Anyone who's ever owned a pet would likely be drawn to this as well, and given the popularity of cat (and dog) videos on social media, this is no doubt a winning concept for an animated movie. The movie started off …

Music Break: Seven Favorite Themes By Alexandre Desplat

For some reason, I had just become familiar with Alexandre Desplat's work fairly recently. I think it was his score for The Queen (2006) that garnered my attention, and since then I've been a big fan.
