FlixChatter Review: VENOM (2018)

Review by: Vitali Gueron The next Marvel Comics superhero action movie released by Sony Pictures in 2018 is Venom. The movie is the first film in Sony's Marvel Universe, which is auxiliary to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Think The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man: Homecoming, etc.) This means that the studio intended to start …

FlixChatter Review – ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story (2016)

I don't call myself a Star Wars groupie and honestly I was rather lukewarm about The Force Awakens. At the same time I didn't hate the prequels trilogy (episode 1-3) though I have to admit there were tons of problems. But the more I hear about Rogue One and that amazing international cast, the more I look …

FlixChatter Review: Jason Bourne (2016)

As a fan of the Bourne trilogy, I was dismayed when in 2012, Universal went ahead with the sequel (Bourne Legacy) without Matt Damon. That fact perhaps made me more excited to see Damon teamed up again with director Paul Greengrass for a fifth (well, technically fourth) entry. I guess it's inevitable that a franchise as lucrative …

FlixChatter Review: Nightcrawler (2014)

Seems that I might be the last person who hasn't seen Nightcrawler and I'm even gutted I didn't see this on the big screen. There is something so mesmerizing and disturbing about this film which is in keeping with the theme of the gawker mentality that the small-screen media capitalize on. Set in the nocturnal underbelly of …

Five new-to-me actors I’d love to see more of – based on 2013 viewings

Since I started last year, I'm going to make this post an annual thing (well, for as long as I have this blog that is). I mentioned in the first post that one of the joys of watching movies is discovering new talents. Again, I may not necessarily love the film they appear in, but …

Indie Weekend Roundup: The Reluctant Fundamentalist review

It's the last weekend of MSPfest and it's been great watching a bunch of indie films. Saw The Hunt last night and this is my initial reaction: Well-crafted & well-acted Danish thriller The Hunt is taut and extremely unsettling. It's one of those films that REALLY got under my skin. — FlixChatter (@FlixChatter) April 29, …
