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.

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 …
