FlixChatter Review: Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

There are films you'd readily see just for the cast and this is one such a film. I'm familiar with Agatha Christie's work though I can't claim I've actually finished even one of her books from start to finish.

FlixChatter Review: Cinderella (2015)

Growing up watching Disney fairy tale movies, I have to admit Cinderella wasn't my favorite heroine. Over the years though, as there are more and more adaptations of this quintessential underdog story (more so than any other Disney "princesses" it seems), the more I appreciate the animated classic. Lately the cinematic trend is reinvention, giving a classic tale a …

PIRATE RADIO A period comedy about an illegal radio station in the North Sea in the 1960s. So I guess not all *pirates* are bad.
