FlixChatter Review: EQUALIZER 2 (2018)

With such a long and successful career, it’s hard to believe that Denzel Washington has never starred in a sequel until now. The first Equalizer film was a modest success at the box office, but I didn’t think it warrants a sequel. But then again, this is an era in Hollywood when every movie can …

Interestingly enough, the marketing for the movie has been putting the White House itself as the main STAR of the film. I mean there are some …

Guest Post: Six directors’ career who got derailed by box office bombs

Film directors know that it’s hard to make movies in Hollywood; it’s even harder to actually make a successful one. So when some of them hit the jackpot and make a box office hit, studio executives and fans are expecting nothing less from them in their next film. In the last few years, some filmmakers …
