FlixChatter: DEEP WATER (2022)

It’s been twenty years since British director Adrian Lyne directed a film, which was Unfaithful in 2002. The last film of his I saw was Indecent Proposal (1993), and I grew up watching his films – Flashdance, 9-1/2 Weeks and Fatal Attraction. Lyne is back with a new erotic psychological thriller Deep Water, which was …

FlixChatter Review: THE TENDER BAR (2021)

This is the third film by George Clooney I’ve seen so far, and also his second collaboration with Ben Affleck after they both produced the Oscar-winning ARGO.

Oh where do I begin with this one… frankly, I'm still a bit discombobulated by what I just watched last night. When I saw the trailer over a week ago, The Last Thing He Wanted looks like an intriguing political thriller, and the fact that acclaimed writer/director Dee Rees is at the helm made me …

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. The tile seems rather generic, but the term Triple Frontier actually refers to a tri-border area along the junction of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, …
