Question of the Week: Are you looking forward to AVATAR sequels?

It just dawned on me that it's been over four years since AVATAR was released. I remember it was quite a big deal back in 2009. I remember getting advanced screenings (this was before I was on the press list, mind you) and I was soooooo excited! I even had a countdown post like I …

Random Question: Which movie did you watch most often in the theater?

Sometimes an idea of a post just presents itself when you least expect it. I was just chattin' with one of the web programmers at work via email about a project, and somehow our conversation turned to movies. He candidly shared to me that he had seen James Cameron's ALIENS 12 times! Yep, you read …

Which Oscar’s Best Picture winner(s) are great for repeat viewings?

Three more days until Oscar time! I was going to publish my Oscar chatter post on my winner picks vs. predictions on the major categories, but allow me to digress. I had an email conversation earlier today with a colleague/friend of mine and she confessed how The Hurt Locker is not something she'd enjoy watching …

Five Favorite Movies of 2009 … and My Top 25 picks of the Decade

I realize I might be rather late in posting this kind of list, but I figure since it's technically still the first month of the year, I think I can get away with it. No? Oh well, I don't live by your rules! 🙂 I can't judge whether 2009 is a good or bad year …

Weekend Roundup: The Edge of Love, The Young Victoria and Avatar

Two indie flicks and a giant blockbuster, that's the three movies I watched this weekend. It may seem absurd to you but I just finally signed up with Netflix again after 2+ yrs of terminating its membership. Vanessa wondered how I filled my time before that, and the answer is, well, the old-fashioned way. I'm …

Casting & Misc. News: FlixChatter’s Highlights

Happy Friday, folks! Let me start off with some updates to a couple of news items I've mentioned in the past, so let's get on 'em, shall we? Back in November, I talked about Danny Boyle's mountaineering-gone-wrong tale 127 Hours about an American adventurer who had to amputate his own arm stuck under a boulder …

Random Thoughts: The AVATAR effect

I was at the movies Saturday nite and boy was it busy. When the windchill went as low as double digits below zero, there's really not much one can do outside. We were there a good forty-five minutes early, but thinking Up in the Air is a few weeks' old, we decided to wait until …

FlixChatter’s AVATAR review

To say Avatar is like nothing you've seen before is a quite an understatement. Back in June, I list Avatar as one of five must-see flix of the rest of 2009 and ever since then, the hype promised it to be something of an epic thrill ride. Well, I can confidently say that fifteen years …

Counting down to James Cameron’s AVATAR

Less than a week to go until I get to see one of my most anticipated movies this year. Ever since Avatar Day back in August, I've been following all the buzz surrounding the James Cameron's most ambitious project to date. Not all of it has been positive of course, lots of people have actually …

THIS JUST IN: AVATAR Full Theatrical Trailer

FINALLY! I've been waiting for this ever since a bunch of sites/blogs announced that the 3.5-minute trailer will be released in theaters. I wish they'd just circulate it online at the same time, alas the bootlegged version hit the web a few days ago but I refused to see it. I'd rather see the full …
