Guest Review: The Great Wall (2017)

Directed By: Yimou Zhang Written By: Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro and Tony Gilroy Runtime: 1 hr 43 minutes I’m so happy they cast Matt Damon as the lead in The Great Wall. Middle-aged white men are dangerously underrepresented in Hollywood nowadays, and giving recognition to a criminally underused actor was such a brave, progressive decision by …

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: Jason Bourne (2016)

As a fan of the Bourne trilogy, I was dismayed when in 2012, Universal went ahead with the sequel (Bourne Legacy) without Matt Damon. That fact perhaps made me more excited to see Damon teamed up again with director Paul Greengrass for a fifth (well, technically fourth) entry. I guess it's inevitable that a franchise as lucrative …

Genre Grandeur – Heist Movies: Ocean’s Eleven & Ocean’s Thirteen

This post is part of MovieRob's Genre Grandeur (or Guesstimation) series. Thanks to my pal Ted S. for his review of one of his favorite films of the genre. I lost count on how many times I’ve watched these two Ocean’s films; I’m going to pretend that Ocean’s 12 never existed; the self-indulgent film was …

Throwback Tuesday: Fave scenes from THE BOURNE IDENTITY (2002)

Hello friends! I thought I'd introduce a new blog series, as I'm so good at keeping up with every single blog series I've put together, right 😉 This series is sort of inspired by Deadpool believe it or not. I just saw it last night and it's got a lot of hilarious 80s throwbacks so I thought …

Music Break: The Martian’s DISCO Classics

One of the things I thoroughly enjoyed about The Martian was the lighthearted tone of the film, despite the obviously dire subject matter of someone being stuck in Mars. And one of the funniest bits in the film involve something totally unexpected... DISCO music! Matt Damon's character Mark Watney initially hated it, but he's not …

FlixChatter Review: The Martian (2015)

It's a testament of a truly good film when two weeks after I saw it I'm still thinking about it fondly and can't wait to see it again. I mentioned in this post that I had been anticipating this film for a couple of reasons, but deep down I still wished it'd be good as …

Fall Movie Spotlight: Ridley Scott’s The Martian

You're probably wondering why I'm suddenly blogging about this film, with just two weeks before its US release (October 2). UK folks actually will get this two days sooner on Sept. 30. In all honesty, up until fairly recently, I had been mostly blasé about this film, given my disappointments with Sir Ridley Scott's movies …

Musings on Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR

I've been a big fan of Christopher Nolan's work, in fact I've seen all of his work and they've pretty much range from great to fantastic. I've been looking forward to Interstellar like most movie fans, but to be honest with you, for whatever reason, a couple of weeks before the film opened and as the hype reaches its …

FlixChatter Double Reviews: The Monuments Men

Happy Friday everyone! Today we've got another double review of a film which release has been delayed for a couple of months. Originally, this was to be released last December during awards/holiday season, but director/star George Clooney actually asked the studio for more time for post-production due to the special effects weren't ready. Sarah and …
