FlixChatter Review: Netflix’s PERSUASION (2022)

Since this movie is clearly made for Gen Z and the supposedly woke audience, let me just say that most involved in this production did NOT understand the assignment. As I said in my trailer post, I was open-minded about this Netflix adaptation, but within 10 minutes I realize they’ve stripped everything I love about …

FlixChatter Review: Mr. Malcolm’s List (2022)

Some critics might say that there’s been a resurgence of period dramas of late, but as a fan of the genre, I really think there’s always a healthy appetite for it. I mean, Julian Fellowes certainly has been able to bottle it with the continued success of Downton Abbey, there’s of course Bridgerton that has …

FlixChatter Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

Jane Austen's brilliant work has endured over two centuries so far and it's as relevant as ever. I'm not a purist Austen fan, as I actually enjoy alternative/re-imagining of her work, i.e. Lost in Austen, Bride & Prejudice, Bridget Jones Diary, Austenland, etc. But none are as outlandish as what Seth Grahame-Smith's done in his book. I hadn't read it, …

Musings on Clueless – random observations on the iconic 90s movie 20 years later

So apparently Clueless just hit its 20th anniversary this month, as suddenly there are a plethora of references on from the movie all over social media. In fact, my hubby was perplexed by some of them as he hadn't seen it before. So we thought, why not watch the movie Friday night since it's on Netflix streaming. To …
