FlixChatter Review – MIDSOMMAR (2019)

Written & Directed by: Ari Aster When I heard Ari Aster had a new horror movie coming out, I was excited, especially since he described it as a companion piece to last year's Hereditary.

FlixChatter Review – DARK PHOENIX (2019)

Written & Directed by: Simon Kinberg Let me preface this review by saying I'm not an X-Men fan. That's not to say I dislike the franchise; I just never got into it. I saw the first three movies when I was in middle and high school and liked them well enough, but I never read …

FlixChatter Review – ROCKETMAN (2019)

Directed by:Dexter Fletcher Written by: Lee Hall I'm always hesitant to review biopics; it just feels weird to critique a story about someone who actually exists, and it's tricky to talk about the writing, because who am I to say if something seems rushed or melodramatic if it actually happened that way? Fortunately, this movie …

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 – The Nun (2018)

While I'm a fan of horror in general, I prefer the supernatural/paranormal sub-genre, and The Conjuring film series is easily one of my favorites out of the more recent paranormal horror movies. I always try to go into screenings with an open mind, but I couldn't help having high expectations with The Nun. The Nun …
