FlixChatter Review: DUMBO (2019)

It seems that every year now we'll be treated to a live action of Disney's animated movies. Now, I actually quite like Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, Jungle Book, and I'm curiously anticipating Aladdin. As for Dumbo, I actually don't remember much of the original. I only watched a scene of Dumbo and his mother …

FlixChatter Review: Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017)

Review by: Vitali Gueron Denzel Washington is at the top of his game in the new movie Roman J. Israel, Esq. from writer/director Dan Gilroy. Having seen and been impressed by Gilroy’s 2014 debut film Nightcrawler (with Jake Gyllenhaal), I was curious what the director had in store for us. This film starts out slow, with Roman (Washington)’s firm …

In his debut feature, Goldsman's wearing multiple hat as producer, writer AND director. The film takes place at the turn of the century New York City, where the protagonist, Peter Lake, has …

Here we go again. The question of 'is this remake necessary?' is ubiquitous once again. For some, Paul Verhoeven's Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is regarded a classic. So naturally, people are crying foul when director Len Wiseman announced he's doing a remake 22 years after the original's release in 1990. So today, Ted and …
