FlixChatter Review: THE BATMAN (2022)

Even in a saturated comic-book movie market, I find it impossible NOT to be excited for The Batman.

FlixChatter Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

Let me preface this review by saying that I haven't seen any of the classic Apes movies in the 60s. I did see the 2001 reboot but I can barely remember any of it. But the 2011 version won me over that I'm intrigued to see what's going to happen next. The story takes place about a …
