FlixChatter Review: Netflix’s VELVET BUZZSAW (2019)

Netflix has truly become a force to be reckoned with in terms of original content, the fact that they apparently planned on making 90 original movies this year alone… with budgets up to $200mil! In the Winter time, streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon are a staple for me, as weather can wreck havoc on …

Guest Review: LIFE (2017)

Directed By: Daniel Espinosa Written By: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick Runtime: 1 hr 43 minutes I wish I could at least pretend to be as cool as the other writers who sit around me at these press screenings. I wish I could go to a genuinely scary movie like Life and calmly take notes, looking up at …

Guest Review: NOCTURNAL ANIMALS (2016)

Written/Directed By: Tom Ford Cast: Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson Runtime: 1 hr 56 minutes It is hard to adequately describe the opening scenes of the psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals (2016) but you will not forget them quickly. Picture, if you will, images of completely naked and generously sized women writhing rhythmically to a heavy beat …

Everybody’s Chattin + Casting News w/ Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain & Jake Gyllenhaal

Happy Thursday, everyone! The nice thing about going to a work conference on Monday & Tuesday is the week feels shorter than it is, so tomorrow is Friday already, yay!

FlixChatter Review: Nightcrawler (2014)

Seems that I might be the last person who hasn't seen Nightcrawler and I'm even gutted I didn't see this on the big screen. There is something so mesmerizing and disturbing about this film which is in keeping with the theme of the gawker mentality that the small-screen media capitalize on. Set in the nocturnal underbelly of …

FlixChatter Review: PRISONERS

When I first saw the trailer of Prisoners, I thought it looked like a made for TV movie that you'd see on TNT or some cable network. So I didn't really have much interest in seeing it on the big screen, well after reading several high praised reviews online, I changed my mind. The movie …

Weekend Roundup: Never Let Me Go review

Welcome to May, everybody. For having endured a pretty cold and snowy Winter, I'm certainly glad Spring has arrived and Summer is upon us! I was fortunate enough to watch not one but two excellent sci-fi movies this weekend, a genre I like especially if it's the thought-provoking kind. And both Never Let Me Go …
