FlixChatter Review – Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)

Like so many 80's and 90's kids, my sister and I grew up loving the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark trilogy.

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 …
