FlixChatter Review: OFFICIAL SECRETS (2019)

I’m glad I got to see this film on National Whistleblower Day last July. It was a very early screening to coincide with that day, which I think is appropriate as many whistleblowers are unsung heroes in my opinion, and they risked a lot to do what they do. As did Katharine Gun, a British …

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.

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 …

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 …
