FlixChatter Review: AQUAMAN (2018)

I’m not the biggest comic book reader, in my younger years I’ve only read Batman and The Punisher comics. So, I’ve only learned about Aquaman from the show Entourage. During that show’s second season, its star ended up playing Aquaman and fans of the comic were hoping an actual film based on the character would …

FlixChatter Review: The Railway Man (2013)

This may sound harsh, but I’m growing tired of WWII films that have a singular focus on the Nazis and Jews. There have been so many wonderful films successfully depicting the horror and tragedy that befell the Jews, but at the same time, there are so many untold stories from different perspectives that are worth …

DVD Review: Nine

"Style is the new content," Kate Hudson's character Stephanie, an American fashion journalist working for Vogue told Guido Contini. Well, that's about sums up the sensibility of this movie, which is nothing short of style over substance. Based on Frederico Fellini's 8-1/2 (reviewed by guest blogger Rockerdad), it centers on the renowned Italian director Guido …

Man, I've been giving so much free publicity for the Weinsteins but I can't help myself. I thought the second trailer of the NINE musical flick couldn't get any more awesome. Well I was wrong. In this third trailer, we finally hear the man speak. Daniel Day-Lewis is sporting a believable Italian accent as Guido …
