FlixChatter Review: CAPTAIN MARVEL (2019)

I think it goes without saying that Captain Marvel is an important milestone. It's not the first movie featuring a female superhero, but it's the first out of the gate out of the behemoth Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Honestly, I try to tune out the buzz around this movie, something that's getting increasingly difficult in …

FlixChatter Review – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)

Review by: Laura Schaubschlager I just saw Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and once again, I have to separate my feelings as a die-hard 20-year-long Harry Potter fan from my thoughts as a movie critic. While I have a lot of gripes about how lazy J.K. Rowling's later additions and retcons to the Wizarding …

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 …

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina

Thanks to my friend Julian who told me about the trailer via Twitter, I had forgotten that I was going to do a spotlight post on this film when I first picked up the novel. I still have not finished the Leo Tolstoy masterpiece, still stuck at about the halfway mark. I wasn't sure if …

FlixChatter’s Sherlock Holmes Review

Let's just say one thing for sure, this isn't your grandfather's Sherlock Holmes. This version breathes the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, but purists beware that Guy Ritchie definitely takes some, ok a lot of liberties with his interpretation of the legendary detective. Reportedly, Madonna's ex is a Holmes aficionado who's clearly been …

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus – Heath Ledger’s last film

In the trailer that was released last week, we get a glimpse of the last work of an actor who died way too young and with so much potential for greatness. It's a fantastical morality tale that tells the story of a leader of a traveling troupe, Dr Parnassus, who has an extraordinary gift of …
