FlixChatter Review: UNCHARTED (2022)

This project has been in development hell for over a decade. I actually have blogged about it in 2010 when Mark Wahlberg was still attached to play Nathan Drake, though whenever I look at the video game rendering of the character, I always thought Nathan Fillion would’ve been perfect. I also listed Richard Armitage as …

FlixChatter Review: The Hitman’s Wife Bodyguard (2021)

It hasn’t been that long ago that The Hitman’s Bodyguard was released in 2017, and I remember it being quite a pleasant surprise despite its inherent silliness. It’s a spoof of the buddy cop action comedy but with two bodyguards forming an unlikely bond of friendship between Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and Darius Kincaid (Samuel …

FlixChatter Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Haywire’

The one thing I found appealing right away is of course the cast: Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Bill Paxton... and the femme fatale, a real mixed-martial arts fighter Gina Carano. Steven Soderbergh confessed to the Hall H panel at Comic-con that he 'discovered' Carano fighting in a cage whilst watching TV …

Flix Poster of the Week: You Will Meet a Tall, Dark, Stranger

Another year, another Woody Allen's ensemble-cast movie. I'm not one to rush to see his movies, in fact, I can count with one hand how many of his films I have seen. But these posters of his upcoming rom-com just spell lovely. I love, love these! The illustrated silhouettes are so simple yet sooo romantic, …
