Ranking the BOURNE villains – from worst to best

Every hero requires a villain and the Jason Bourne franchise has plenty of villains to root against. I do want to see him go up against other groups of villains though, as opposed to just CIA bigwigs and their hired assassins. Maybe for the next sequel, Bourne could take down some other group of baddies. In …

Today's Gerry Butler's birthday. For the past three years I've been making all kinds of tribute posts to my former crush.

FlixChatter Review: Coriolanus (2011)

Coriolanus is one of the renown playwright's lesser-known works that Ralph Fiennes has played on stage back in 2000. It's sort of a passion project for him so naturally he knows this character inside and out. For his directorial debut, the British thespian translates the story as a modern wartime film set in a 'place …

FlixChatter Review: Michael Mann’s Manhunter (1986)

FlixChatter Review: The Rise of the Planet of the Apes

As I said in my weekend roundup post, this film was such a pleasant surprise as I really wasn't that interested in seeing it. In fact, when the trailer came out a few months ago, I quickly dismissed it, saying that it looked ridiculous and so darn obvious that the apes will go y'know, ape-sh*t …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: RED

I normally post this on a Friday, but you know what, I can't wait for y'all to see it (if you haven't already). Whaddayaknow, another flick about spies? Seems like this is an endless recurring theme, but it's not like Hollywood to pump out a working formula until there's nothing left. But with a cast …
