JUNE Viewing Recap: INDIAN SUMMERS, Netflix’s Murder Mystery, Unlocked, etc.

I can't believe it's July already... I feel like once July 4th is behind us, we're already more than halfway done with Summer 😦 Well, I actually didn't really do much movie/tv watching around the Fourth weekend as I prefer to make the most of Minnesota Summer outside. I did watch quite a few things …

Hello folks! What's happening in your world? As you can imagine my life is still pretty much consumed by my short film… and will be so for at least the next year. Hearts Want is currently on post production now, specifically in editing… where most of the magic of filmmaking happens. In the meantime, I've …

Guest Review: Beauty and The Beast (2017)

Directed By: Bill Condon Written By: Stephen Chbosky & Evan Spiliotopoulos Runtime: 2 hours 9 minutes I cannot begin to explain how excited I was to get to review this movie. If I hadn’t been in a theater with about twenty-five other reviewers, I might have burst into tears as soon as the title appeared on screen. Beauty …

FlixChatter Review: The Girl on the Train (2016)

When this project was first announced, I was hoping I'd finish the book by the time the film comes out. Well I didn't get to the book, but I was still anticipating this one, largely for the female-driven story. Comparison to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (which I reviewed almost exactly two years ago) is inevitable, given that both …

Musings on the final Hobbit trilogy: The Battle of the Five Armies

Seems like it was ages ago since I saw the first Hobbit film. But in fact it was exactly two years ago that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released. There were – and still are – quibbles about how a 320-page book warrants a three-film adaptation, and I was actually one of those people who …

10 Favorite Things about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Much has been debated about whether or not it's a good idea that The Hobbit gets the same trilogy treatment as The Lord of the Rings trilogy when there is only one book being adapted. Now, I actually didn't mind it and given how much I adore the Middle Earth universe, I welcome the extended …

Weekend Roundup: Cabin in the Woods + Fast & Furious 6

I ended up venturing out of my comfort zone a couple of times this Memorial Weekend. Thankfully neither one is disappointing. On Friday night, we were debating between three movies, as you can see in my tweet below. Deciding between The Imposter, Cabin in the Woods or Kid With the Bike #whattowatchtonight — FlixChatter (@FlixChatter) …

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: The Raven

Relativity just released this eerie-looking new poster for The Raven. Now, I still prefer this teaser poster that was released last July. I just think that one is much more creative and so brilliantly creepy. This new one isn't not bad, I kind of like the subtle raven design on the title, but the wings reminds me a …
