FlixChatter Review: The Martian (2015)

It's a testament of a truly good film when two weeks after I saw it I'm still thinking about it fondly and can't wait to see it again. I mentioned in this post that I had been anticipating this film for a couple of reasons, but deep down I still wished it'd be good as …

Fall Movie Spotlight: Ridley Scott’s The Martian

Musings on Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR

I've been a big fan of Christopher Nolan's work, in fact I've seen all of his work and they've pretty much range from great to fantastic. I've been looking forward to Interstellar like most movie fans, but to be honest with you, for whatever reason, a couple of weeks before the film opened and as the hype reaches its …

10 Actresses I would watch in just about anything

As part of a continuation to the Top 10 Actors I'd See in Anything post, I figure I'd do the same list for the fairer sex. If anything, my love for actresses seem to be more constant than for actors, not sure why but aside from some new discoveries, I've been a fan of most …
