The Flix List: 10+ year-old films that deserve a second look

Have you ever seen a film and question why it’s not as well known or gets the respect it deserves? I consider myself a film geek and have seen several films throughout the years, while some I saw deserves all the accolades it received and many deserves to be forgotten. But I thought these films …

FlixChatter Review: ALLIED (2016)

So this is a film that has quite a pedigree. Starting w/ the director Robert Zemeckis, who have made some of the best films like Back To The Future, Romancing The Stone, Forrest Gump, Contact, etc. plus the two A-listers, Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. I have to admit my main draw was Zemeckis and Cotillard, as …

Genre Grandeur – Heist Movies: Ocean’s Eleven & Ocean’s Thirteen

This post is part of MovieRob's Genre Grandeur (or Guesstimation) series. Thanks to my pal Ted S. for his review of one of his favorite films of the genre.

FlixChatter Review: FURY (2014)

Hollywood loves making films about WWII and to their credit they produced some great ones. In my opinion, Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line were the last great films about this war. And even though I loved Inglorious Basterds, I don’t count it as true WWII film, if you saw it then you …

Counting Down to Gone Girl – Ranking David Fincher’s Films

As part of countdown to Gone Girl that's out on October 3, and part Birthday tribute to David Fincher (he turned 52 in Sept. 28), I asked my pal Ted S. who's a longtime admirer of the director to rank nine of his films since Alien 3 in 1992.  David Fincher is one of the few elite A-list …

The Flix List: Five Movies Suffering From Identity Crisis

Many filmmakers tried to mix several genres in one film, sometime it works nicely, i.e. Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is a superhero movie mixed with Cold War-era espionage intrigue. But most of the time, it turns out to be a disaster. Just look at Cowboys & Aliens, mixing Sci-fi with Westerns sounds like …
