Written/Directed By: Tom Ford Cast: Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson Runtime: 1 hr 56 minutes It is hard to adequately describe the opening scenes of the psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals (2016) but you will not forget them quickly.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Review – The good, the bad and the ugly

By the time I sat down to write this, I’ve actually seen BVS twice in a week. Yup, you probably think I’m a masochist and I don’t blame you. But hey, it’s really out of solidarity with my dear hubby that I saw it again a second time, as we weren’t allowed to bring guests …

Weekend Roundup: Leap Year, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond & a whole lot of Toby Stephens

If someone were to ask me, "What did you do this weekend?" Well, the short answer would be "Toby Stephens." Ahah, well ok so it came out wrong, didn't it? I meant, my weekend pretty much consisted of watching/listening/tumblr-ing about him, my long-lifeless tumblr has been set ablaze now by Toby's fiery charisma. I did manage to …

FlixChatter Review: Spike Jonze’s HER

Once in a while, a film you hadn't heard much about suddenly sneaked in and took your breath away. In 2013, that film for me was HER. In its simplistic terms, Spike Jonze's sci-fi drama is about a guy who falls in love with an Operating System. Yes, that alone is downright bizarre, which at …

FlixChatter Review: American Hustle

Based on the ABSCAM scandal of the late 1970s, con-artists Irving Rosenfeld and Sydney Prosser are forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso. When I first heard David O. Russell was making this film, I was immediately drawn to it mainly because of the cast. It's combining the best of The Fighter …

Musings on Man of Steel: What works and what doesn’t in the latest Superman reboot

Oh boy, where do I begin... Some films are tough to review and I find this one to be particularly so because I feel like I've invested myself in this movie even long before I saw it. It's strange I know, and perhaps I shouldn't have been sooo incredibly pumped but if you've read my …
