Musings on Robert Pattinson casting + Matt Reeves’ noir vision for The Batman

It seems it hasn't been that long ago that I was blogging about casting for a Batman movie when Ben Affleck was cast. If some of you read it, I was actually lamenting about Affleck's casting then, but later on I came around and actually enjoyed his performance. Now, Christian Bale remains my favorite Batman …

FlixChatter Review: TRIPLE FRONTIER (2019)

As of last October, Netflix began offering press screenings for its original movies. Yet for some reason, this is the first time I'm seeing a Netflix Original Movie on the big screen.

FlixChatter Review: The Accountant (2016)

It's kind of an interesting choice for Ben Affleck to do this movie in the same year as Batman V Superman. Some people call this one as an unconventional superhero movie about an autistic accountant, and it wouldn't be wrong as there's certainly traces of Bruce Wayne in the film protagonist, Christian Wolff. Heck even his …

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 …

FlixChatter Review: GONE GIRL (2014)

Few films this year got as much feverish anticipation as this one. To be honest, I got a bit worried this film wasn't going to live up to the hype, but I'm glad to report that I wasn't disappointed. I'm also glad that since I haven't read the book, I managed to avoid any spoilers about the …
