FlixChatter Review: THE LIFE AHEAD (2020)

Tales of unlikely friendships often make for great drama. Renowned Italian actress Sophia Loren made a come back to cinema nearly a decade since her last acting role, which marks the third time she collaborates with her own son, Edoardo Ponti.

FlixChatter Review: THE NEST (2020)

I saw The Nest on a screener thanks to IFC Films and the premise intrigued me immediately. Jude Law and Carrie Coon Life play husband and wife whose already-fragile marriage take a twisted turn after moving into an English country manor.

FlixChatter Review: CAPTAIN MARVEL (2019)

FlixChatter Review: SPY (2015)

I have a confession to make. I haven't seen Bridesmaids nor any of Melissa McCarthy's R-rated comedies The Heat, Identity Thief, and Tammy. I'm not exactly fond of raunchy comedies with all the foul language and gross situations that I don't find the least bit funny. But somehow when I saw the trailer for SPY, I was laughing …

FlixChatter Review: Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects

This supposedly Steven Soderbergh's last feature film wasn't even on my radar, in fact I just saw the trailer the day of the screening a couple of weeks ago. I'm glad I didn't know anything about this movie and I think the less you read or watch about it the better. In fact, when I …
