FlixChatter Review: Motherless Brooklyn (2019)

Edward Norton is one of the best actors working today, but I feel like it's been a while since I saw him as a proper leading man. This time he also takes the helm in his passion project, based on Jonathan Lethem’s 1999 novel of the same name. Norton plays Lionel Essrog, a lonesome private …

FlixChatter Review: GLASS (2018)

Written & Directed by M. Night Shyamalan Starring: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson I collected comic books as a kid during the late 70s through the 80s. As an introverted 8 year old, comics (from DC to Marvel, to Batman, X-Men, and eventually to graphic novels) provided a sense of wonder and mystery. Even …

FlixChatter Review: Death Wish (2018)

I hate using the word “guilty pleasure” when talking about films that I enjoy but I think the old Charles Bronson's Death Wish films are definitely my guilty pleasures. Of course, with Hollywood pretty much refusing to make any films that resemble any kind of originality, a remake of the 1974 film was inevitable. The remake …

The Flix List: Five Movies Suffering From Identity Crisis

Many filmmakers tried to mix several genres in one film, sometime it works nicely, i.e. Captain America: The Winter Soldier which is a superhero movie mixed with Cold War-era espionage intrigue. But most of the time, it turns out to be a disaster. Just look at Cowboys & Aliens, mixing Sci-fi with Westerns sounds like …

Question of the Week: 80s/90s aging movie stars still in action – Love ’em or Hate ’em?

Tonight I'm going to a screening of 3 Days to Kill. Yes the trailer looks ridiculous and the director is McG so the likelihood of this being good is pretty slim. But y'know what, I'm still going to see it for the nostalgia factor as I quite like Kevin Costner as an action hero, whom …

FlixChatter Review: G.I. Joe Retaliation

Well I believe I know why Paramount decided to delay the release of this film from last June to March of this year. Their excuse was that they wanted to add 3D effects to the film but rumors were all over the internet that they also wanted to beef up Channing Tatum's role. Those excuses …

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Special: Premium Rush & Looper Reviews

It's been quite a year for 31-year-old young thespian Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He's got four movies opening this year alone, including one mega-blogbuster The Dark Knight Rises. It's a testament to his versatility that he's played a supporting role in two (TDKR and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, out later this November), and a starring role in two …
