FlixChatter Review: Nightmare Alley (2021)

With a name like Nightmare Alley and directed by Guillermo del Toro, those unfamiliar with the source material might assume it's a horror movie. That's what I thought before the trailer rolled around last September, but there is actually no ghost, ghoulish creatures or supernatural elements in this film. That does not mean there is no …

This Just In! Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ Trailer

It's been four years since Guillermo del Toro won a Best Picture Oscar for The Shape of Water, and this is the first feature film he's worked on since. Of course it's not the only film that had to shut down because of the pandemic. Per this Indiewire article, they stopped the shoot when shooting …

FlixChatter Review: A Star Is Born (2018)

Once in a while, a film came along that you couldn’t stop thinking and talking about for days, maybe weeks. I may be one of the last few people in the universe who have never seen any of the three prior adaptation of A Star Is Born. Somehow I managed to avoid reading about the …

FlixChatter Review: American Sniper (2014)

The last time Clint Eastwood tackled a war story he made Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima back to back. The former I thought was a good film but contained too many clichés, while the latter I thought was one of the best war films ever made. I think his latest picture …

FlixChatter Review: American Hustle

Based on the ABSCAM scandal of the late 1970s, con-artists Irving Rosenfeld and Sydney Prosser are forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso. When I first heard David O. Russell was making this film, I was immediately drawn to it mainly because of the cast. It's combining the best of The Fighter …
