FlixChatter Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

When this movie came across my screen as I fired up Netflix, I knew this is the kind of movie I'd enjoy. Billed as a 'celebration of literature, love, and the power of the human spirit,' it's a charming film set in an English island during WWII. It certainly helps that I'm an Anglophile and British …

FlixChatter Review: ALLIED (2016)

So this is a film that has quite a pedigree. Starting w/ the director Robert Zemeckis, who have made some of the best films like Back To The Future, Romancing The Stone, Forrest Gump, Contact, etc. plus the two A-listers, Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. I have to admit my main draw was Zemeckis and Cotillard, as …

How's your weekend everyone? It's another glorious weekend weather-wise… Summer is so fleeting here in MN so we've got to make the most of our time being outside.

Weekend Roundup: Solomon Kane, Dancing on the Edge miniseries + Casting By doc

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend. It was a nice, mellow one for me, just enjoying the last few weeks of the fleeting Minnesota Summer. We had yummy Lebanese food for dinner and took a stroll by Mississippi River just before sunset... it was a warm night with a slight breeze. PERFECT. …

FlixChatter Review: Self/less (2015)

You know when you watch a trailer and you sigh because not only does the trailer practically gives away the entire movie, you also wish that the supporting actor played the lead role. Well, Self/less is such a movie and the actor I wish had played the lead is Matthew Goode. More on that later. …

Everybody’s Chattin + Question of the week: Supporting cast you wish got the leading role

I can hardly believe half of the year's already come and gone! It's been a rather odd month for me, but in terms of movie watching, it's rather uneventful. I sure hope the later part of 2015 have better films in store for us... and looking at Katy's list of highly-anticipated movies for the rest of …

St Patrick’s Day Special: Five memorable scenes set in beautiful Ireland

Are you wearing green today? Today we're all Irish, right? 😉 I celebrated last year's St Paddy's Day by paying tribute to some of the best Irish actors working in Hollywood today. Today I thought I'd set my eyes on some gorgeous Irish sceneries in movies, which is always one of the best things about the …

FlixChatter Review: BELLE (2013)

As a big fan of period dramas, I've been looking forward to this film since last November when I first heard about it. Well, seven months later I finally got to see it and it's certainly worth the wait. The film opens with a Royal Navy Admiral (Matthew Goode) picking up a young mixed-race girl from …

Weekend Roundup: Leap Year, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond & a whole lot of Toby Stephens

If someone were to ask me, "What did you do this weekend?" Well, the short answer would be "Toby Stephens." Ahah, well ok so it came out wrong, didn't it? I meant, my weekend pretty much consisted of watching/listening/tumblr-ing about him, my long-lifeless tumblr has been set ablaze now by Toby's fiery charisma. I did manage to …

FlixChatter Review: Stoker

Though this film was not on my radar until a few months ago, I was quite intrigued when I first saw the trailer. If you haven't seen this yet though, I'd say stay away from the latest trailer. As you've perhaps read my Asian directors post, this is Chan-Wook Park's English language debut. It's not …
