TÁR Review – equally beguiling and frustrating, but Cate Blanchett’s exquisite performance is flawless

The press screening of Tár is quite a singular experience… the theatre was nearly empty and the movie had the longest opening credits. It's about 5 minutes long and set to soft but rather dissonant music, which I later learn is supposed to be music being conducted by the film’s protagonist, Lydia Tár. The film …

FlixChatter Review: DON’T LOOK UP (2021)

In the climate we live in today, with global warming, political unrest AND pandemic wreaking havoc practically everywhere, do we need an apocalyptic movie about an extinction level event? I actually have been avoiding depressing apocalyptic movies these days, though sometimes I’m curious to see something because of the cast. Well, Adam McKay’s Don’t Look …

FlixChatter Review: Nightmare Alley (2021)

With a name like Nightmare Alley and directed by Guillermo del Toro, those unfamiliar with the source material might assume it's a horror movie.

FlixChatter Review – How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019)

How To Train Your Dragon has officially become one of my favorite movie trilogies ever… and perhaps even rival Toy Story as my fave animated trilogies. When the first movie first came out, it kind of took me by surprise just how much I adore it. In fact, it’s one of those rare times that …

Trailer Spotlight: Ocean’s 8

It's the last week before Christmas and the present comes early! I've been excited for this all-female Oceans flick for some time. Normally I'd say we don't need another reboot/sequel/spinoff what-have-you… but y'know what, this year (well, any year really), an extra dose of girl power is extra awesome. 2017 is the year of Wonder …

FlixChatter Review – THOR: Ragnarok (2017)

It’s been almost two weeks since I saw Thor: Ragnarok and I’m still giddy thinking about it. In fact, I had just seen Justice League two nights ago and honestly I’d rather write about the latest Thor movie, and this is one I’d readily watch again. Let me preface this review with the fact that …
