FlixChatter Guest Review: AMBULANCE (2022)

Hollywood loves remaking films from other countries. In the 2000s and early 2010’s, there were several remakes from the Far East and some of them were very successful.

FlixChatter Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

Can't believe it's been seven years ago that I reviewed the Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-man, which I barely even remember now so clearly it wasn't all that amazing.

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.

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! I got to see Jason Bourne press screening last Tuesday. I enjoyed it quite a bit though I think it falls short of the excellent trilogy. I'll review …

Movies coming to Netflix in June – here are the ones I recommend & look forward to

Hi folks, I've been meaning to post this for sometime as every weekend my hubby and I always spend way too long browsing Netflix on what to watch. Yes I know, that's what the queue [or My List] is for but for some reason we still browse the new releases and decide which one appeals …
