FlixChatter Review – DARK PHOENIX (2019)

Written & Directed by: Simon Kinberg Let me preface this review by saying I'm not an X-Men fan. That's not to say I dislike the franchise; I just never got into it. I saw the first three movies when I was in middle and high school and liked them well enough, but I never read …
