FlixChatter Review: EQUALIZER 2 (2018)

With such a long and successful career, it’s hard to believe that Denzel Washington has never starred in a sequel until now. The first Equalizer film was a modest success at the box office, but I didn’t think it warrants a sequel. But then again, this is an era in Hollywood when every movie can …

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 …

Quick thoughts on Oscars 2017… and that crazy Best Picture mixup!

Well this is the first year where the Oscars almost escaped me… It's funny, there's a line that my lead character said in my Hearts Want script, 'I don't give a f*** about the Oscars…' Well, it seems his um, lack of enthusiasm seems to have rubbed off on me a bit. Suffice to say, …

Guest Review: FENCES (2017)

Directed By: Denzel Washington Cast: Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson, Jovan Adepo Runtime: 2 hrs 19 minutes The cinema year gone by was extraordinary for the richness of offerings centred on the African-American experience.

FlixChatter Review: The Magnificent Seven (2016)

I gotta admit, I'm not much of a Western fan. Though interestingly enough, I've liked three western remakes in the past decade: 3:10 To Yuma, True Grit and then this one. Confession: I have NOT seen any of the original films. Now, people who have seen the original films would likely have a different opinion about the remake. …

In with the New BLOGATHON: 4 remakes we think are better than the original films

Happy Weekend everyone! Today I'm participating in Wendell's In With the New Blogathon, and here's the gist of it from Dell himself: In movies, we tend to look upon the new version of things with disdain or, at best, cautious optimism. By new version, I am of course talking about remakes and re-imaginings. Let's be …

FlixChatter Review: The Equalizer (2014)

With the comic book based films dominating the box office, the trend in Hollywood of turning old TV shows into films has died down the last decade or so. I remember back in the 90s, there were new movies based on TV shows coming out every year, Mission: Impossible, The Fugitive, The Brady Bunch Movie …
