FlixChatter Review: Nightmare Alley (2021)

With a name like Nightmare Alley and directed by Guillermo del Toro, those unfamiliar with the source material might assume it's a horror movie. That's what I thought before the trailer rolled around last September, but there is actually no ghost, ghoulish creatures or supernatural elements in this film. That does not mean there is no …

FlixChatter Review: Spike Jonze’s HER

FlixChatter Review: Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects

This supposedly Steven Soderbergh's last feature film wasn't even on my radar, in fact I just saw the trailer the day of the screening a couple of weeks ago. I'm glad I didn't know anything about this movie and I think the less you read or watch about it the better. In fact, when I …
