2018 Golden Globe Awards: Commentary on winners, #TimesUp movement, highlights of the night

Can't believe award season is officially in full swing! Honestly I didn't even realize Golden Globes was this weekend until I heard something in the car as I was driving around. Fortunately I did have time to actually sit down and watch (and live tweeted) the event, though I tuned in late as I usually …

FlixChatter Review: The Fate of the Furious (2017)

The first Fast and Furious film came out 18 years ago and no one would have predicted that it would became one of the most successful franchises in Hollywood. Heck, when I saw the third sequel The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, the worst in the series, I thought for sure we won’t be …

Guest Review: Collateral Beauty (2016)

Directed By: David Frankel Written By: Allan Loeb Runtime: 94 minutes After reviewing a couple unimpressive comedies last week (Office Christmas Party and Why Him?), I was ready for seeing something a little weightier, so I was excited to get the opportunity to see Collateral Beauty. I was a little nervous it would be overly-sentimental, …

Double Reviews: Trumbo (2015) & Hail, Caesar! (2016)

I generally love movies about making movies. Yes it's like Hollywood taking a giant selfie and we all know there are no shortage of narcissists in the business. Nevertheless I enjoy watching movies about the tales of how a picture got made, especially set in the Golden Age of Hollywood where the behind-the-scenes drama is likely …

Rental Pick: Woman in Gold (2015)

Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family. Let me start by saying that Dame Helen Mirren is one of my favorite actresses I'd watch in practically anything. She's easily one of the best things of any film, including this one. As …

10 Actresses I would watch in just about anything

As part of a continuation to the Top 10 Actors I'd See in Anything post, I figure I'd do the same list for the fairer sex. If anything, my love for actresses seem to be more constant than for actors, not sure why but aside from some new discoveries, I've been a fan of most …
