FlixChatter Review: The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021)

Besides Hamlet, I think Macbeth is the most popular Shakespeare adaptations. There have been SO many adapted for the big screen lately that I wasn’t initially interested to see this one. But with Denzel Washington in the title role and Frances McDormand as Lady Macbeth, I couldn’t resist. The early screening was packed even though …

FlixChatter Review: Paddington 2 (2018)

Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen. Though I enjoyed the first movie, it wasn't as if I was clamoring for …

Guest Review: ALONE IN BERLIN (2016)

Directed By: Vincent Perez Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl Runtime: 1 hr 43 minutes War films are stories writ large about aggression between nations.

Ted's Review For the last 10 years or so, Tom Cruise has starred in so many big-budgeted action pictures that I lost count. I …

MSPIFF14 Reviews: Breathe In & The Grand Seduction

Breathe In I have to admit I'm usually not into films about infidelity as it often gets glamorized on film and those getting cheated on often appear as if they deserve what happen to them. Luckily that's not the case here. It's more of a character study on temptation and the fragility of people who …
