Weekend Viewing Roundup: Starter for Ten & A Scanner Darkly

There's nothing interesting at the cinema this weekend, but it's always nice to catch up on older movies I've been meaning to see. This past Friday was our first Girls Movie Nite since its summer hiatus and my girlfriends and I had initially settled on Water for Elephants. The trailer looks pretty good and the …

Flix Poster of the Week: DUE DATE

HAPPY FRIDAY all! I realize I haven't had a poster post for a while, and when I came across this horizontal quad style poster, I knew I had to blog about it. I thought these are hilarious and eye-cathy. Can't say the same about the trailer though, which is somewhat devoid of laughter IMO. The plot: …

Iron Man 2 Review & Highlights from the Movie

Two years ago, when the trailer of Iron Man first came out, I thought it was just ridiculous and juvenile that I had no interest in seeing it. Not sure why I ended up seeing it but let's just say I absolutely loved it. It was such a fun and enjoyable flick from start to …

Conspicuous Trailer of the Week: Iron Man 2

Ok, now with the Oscars behind us, bring on the Summer blockbusters! It's no coincidence that the brand new Iron Man 2 trailer's released right after the Sunday telecast on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE. I was kind of meh about the first trailer that's more Mickey Rourke's Whiplash-centered, but this new one looks awesome! I especially …

FlixChatter’s Sherlock Holmes Review

Let's just say one thing for sure, this isn't your grandfather's Sherlock Holmes. This version breathes the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, but purists beware that Guy Ritchie definitely takes some, ok a lot of liberties with his interpretation of the legendary detective. Reportedly, Madonna's ex is a Holmes aficionado who's clearly been …

Flixchatter Review: The Soloist

I almost didn't watch this one as the Blockbuster nearby didn't have a copy. We've been circling around the New Releases section twice and on to the older flicks aisles, and still couldn't agree on something none of us had seen or wanted to watch. So my hubby and a couple of buddies of mine …

Guy Ritchie and his British Bromances

If you haven't seen the 40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, or Pinneaple Express, then the term 'Bromance' probably just flew past you. Short for 'Brother' and 'Romance,' it essentially means close friendship between straight men or heterosexual 'man-crush.' Well, before Judd Apatow made it popular with the flix I mentioned above, frequently with his 'dream …

Flixchatter’s Must-See Flix for the rest of ’09

The Must-See list in the order of release date: Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Who could resist that pathetic squirrel still on the hunt for his beloved acorn? I couldn't stop laughing from the moment that thing came on the screen. There's possible romance for this little guy as well – hilarious mayhem can't …
