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 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 …

FlixChatter Review: The A-Team

I originally wanted to post this as my weekend roundup, but haven't got around to finishing it. Anyway, last weekend was a busy one but I managed to watch two movies that couldn't be more different from each other: the action-packed The A-Team and Rob Marshall's musical NINE (review forthcoming). Well in a way they …

Conspicuous Trailer of the: The A-Team

Ok, I post this one for nostalgia sake really, as it's definitely not cinema's greatest moment.
