Christmas Weekend Recap: Scrooged + binging on Westworld

Happy last Tuesday of the year folks! Hope you had a lovely Christmas break. Mine is relatively mellow on Christmas day, though we did go up North to Duluth Friday and spent the night there to see the Bentleyville Tour of Lights (I've shared the pics here). We came back in time for Christmas Eve …

FlixChatter Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

It's been ages since I saw the first Ghostbusters movie, which was released three decades ago in 1984. I decided to re-watch the original this weekend, but I barely remembered much of it by the time I saw this reboot. I pretty much chose to stay away from all the controversy over its all-female casting, chugging …

Weekend Viewing Roundup: Ghostbusters (1984) & Superman Returns (2006) rewatch + The Adventurer: Curse Of The Midas Box (2013)

Well this weekend's viewing turns out to be pretty eclectic. Given that I saw the screening of the new Ghostbuster movie (review up later this week), I was inspired to re-watch the original. I honestly can't remember when I saw that one, probably when I was a teen years ago, so my memory of it is hazy. …

FlixChatter Review: Disney’s The Jungle Book (2016)

It's been ages since I saw the cartoon version of The Jungle Book. I have to admit I wasn't too keen on this remake idea when it was first announced, despite the amazing voice cast. But I love when films I wasn't even anticipating end up being such a pleasant surprise, and The Jungle Book did …

FlixChatter Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

I came to appreciate Wes Anderson's films through his third feature film The Royal Tennenbaum a few years after its release in 2001. I enjoyed it but I didn't immediately become a fan right away, his movies are definitely an acquired taste. Since then I have only seen three more from his work, The Darjeeling …

Rental Pick: The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

The Darjeeling Limited (2007) A year after their father's funeral, three brothers travel across India by train in an attempt to bond with each other. To say it's a quirky movie is an understatement, you've come to expect that from Wes Anderson, but I think this one felt extra kooky as it has a bit …

Happy Friday everyone! Today we've got another double review of a film which release has been delayed for a couple of months.

Sarah and …

Spotlight on Bill Murray & my Top Five Favorite Roles

It was Bill Murray's birthday this past Saturday, he turned 63. I know it's a bit late but I can't resist making a tribute to the comedian whose practically a legend. I've always been a big fan of the Illinois native, he's perhaps my favorite SNL-grad (he's one of the original members) who's made it …
