FlixChatter Review – THOR: Ragnarok (2017)

It’s been almost two weeks since I saw Thor: Ragnarok and I’m still giddy thinking about it. In fact, I had just seen Justice League two nights ago and honestly I’d rather write about the latest Thor movie, and this is one I’d readily watch again. Let me preface this review with the fact that …

Ranking the BOURNE villains – from worst to best

Every hero requires a villain and the Jason Bourne franchise has plenty of villains to root against. I do want to see him go up against other groups of villains though, as opposed to just CIA bigwigs and their hired assassins. Maybe for the next sequel, Bourne could take down some other group of baddies. In …

FlixChatter Review: Pete’s Dragon (2016)

I always try to keep a neutral expectation going into a film, and it's a lot easier when I didn't know much about that particular movie. I had no idea that Pete's Dragon was a remake of the 1977 movie until days before I saw it, and I didn't see the original (which is apparently …

FlixChatter Double Reviews: Star Trek Beyond (2016)

Ted's Review I don’t consider myself a Trekkie, I’ve seen all of the Star Trek films but never got into any of the TV shows. I enjoyed the first two films by JJ Abrams, even the much-maligned Into Darkness. When Abrams decided to jump ship and take over the other space adventure franchise, Justin Lin …

Weekend Viewing Roundup and The Book Thief review

How's your weekend everyone? Hope it was a good one. I skipped the cinema this weekend and opted to rewatch Man of Steel as I finally got my Blu-ray last week. I still like it but unfortunately the replayability value of the BD is probably not going to be very high, well for one, the …

Somehow JJ Abrams & co. made me interested in the Star Trek universe

Well, one of my most anticipated movies of the first half of the year has come and gone. I finally saw Star Trek Into Darkness Wednesday night and you know what, despite the huge hype machine working overtime for this film, this film somehow lives up to it. So yeah, I really enjoyed it.  Instead …

Action/Comedy Weekend – The Living Daylights, The IT Crowd & Dredd

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day! It's cool that it also happens to be Obama's second presidential inauguration day. I posted two MLK-related movie posts [here and here] two years in a row to celebrate our hero of the civil rights movement. I don't know if any of those films are going to be made …
