FlixChatter Review: The Gray Man (2022)

Another week, another big, expensive but soulless Netflix blockbuster. It’s no wonder they’re losing subscribers by the thousands with this kind of quantity over quality mentality. It doesn’t help that the streaming subscription is getting more and more expensive, it’ll cost us $15.49 per month in August. Undoubtedly Netflix is seeking a lucrative action franchise to …

FlixChatter Review: Knives Out (2019)

With a provocative title like Knives Out, the film had better be a sharp murder mystery. Fortunately, writer/director Rian Johnson and his stellar ensemble cast delivered! The film embraces the tropes of the whodunnit genre – the wealthy dysfunctional family, the historic mansion, and an eccentric detective investigating the case... but it cleverly turned it …
