FlixChatter Review – DARK PHOENIX (2019)

Written & Directed by: Simon Kinberg Let me preface this review by saying I'm not an X-Men fan. That's not to say I dislike the franchise; I just never got into it. I saw the first three movies when I was in middle and high school and liked them well enough, but I never read …

R. R. …

Musings on Robert Pattinson casting + Matt Reeves’ noir vision for The Batman

It seems it hasn't been that long ago that I was blogging about casting for a Batman movie when Ben Affleck was cast. If some of you read it, I was actually lamenting about Affleck's casting then, but later on I came around and actually enjoyed his performance. Now, Christian Bale remains my favorite Batman …

After a tragedy occurs, what happens next? When a child loses their whole family to darkness and death, where do they go from there?

FlixChatter Review – Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

It took over ten years for Mad Max to return to the big screen, originally set to hit theaters back in summer of 2004 and Mel Gibson was set to reprise his iconic role. Unfortunately, the filmmakers ran into some troubles securing locations and budget and the film was put on hold. 11 years later, …

Weekend Viewing Roundup & Warm Bodies Review

It's a pretty uneventful weekend for me movie-wise, but I got to meet up my old college buddy I haven't seen in years! So it was a lovely weekend in that regard though she's as far away from being a cinephile as it gets. The last movie she saw at the theater was Nacho Libre, …

FlixChatter Review: Jack the Giant Slayer

I've actually never seen any Jack and the Beanstalk movie before, but of course I'm familiar with this bedtime story. I was curious enough about this one given that it's directed by Bryan Singer. It starts unpredictably enough, with Jack's father reading him a bedtime story and of course Jack always believed it's not just …
