FlixChatter Review – Jurassic World: Dominion (2022)

About halfway through the movie, a character utters the line ‘Jurassic World? Ugh, not a fan.’ Now, that character is referring to the theme park Jurassic World, which was as ill-advised an idea as there ever was, but it made me think of Jurassic World the movie. I remember rolling my eyes when I first …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: The Switch

I first heard about this flick when I blogged about Jason Bateman last September when it was still called The Baster. Yeah, no doubt they went with a 'safer' title though it sounds so generic now (there are eight other movies with that exact title on IMDb!). .... The plot: An unmarried 40-year-old woman (Kassie) …
