Everybody’s Chattin + Question of the week: Supporting cast you wish got the leading role

I can hardly believe half of the year's already come and gone! It's been a rather odd month for me, but in terms of movie watching, it's rather uneventful.

FlixChatter [Guest] Review: HERCULES (2014) & Spotlight on Rufus Sewell as Autolycus

I love going to a movie when I’m really not going there to see the movie. This can only mean one thing – Rufus Sewell is once more on the big screen. He played one of Hercules' band of mercenaries, Autolyclus, and wow, did he ever buff up for this role. He also got to …

Question of the Week: Which films with great ensemble cast that fail to deliver?

Music Break: Philip Glass’ The Illusionist score

As tonight I'll be seeing Now You See Me tonight, a crime thriller about a team of illusionists pulling off bank heists during their performances, I thought this week's music break would have a similar theme of magic. The Illusionist is essentially a love story based on Steven Millhauser's short story, "Eisenheim the Illusionist." The …

Traveling Through Cinema: London

It should not be a surprise that I'm an Anglophile, seeing how many British-related stuff I put on this blog 😀 Well, since my good friend Becky (aka Prairegirl) is visiting London in a few weeks, I thought I'd feature one of my all time favorite cities for my Traveling Through Cinema series.

Upcoming Flix Spotlight: British Crime Drama ‘All Things To All Men’

A new contractor at my office who just started last week made an observation the other day when he stopped by my cube. "Are you a bit of an Anglophile?" I asked him why he thought so, then he pointed out to my Skyfall poster, London desktop pics, and other British-related memorabilia all over my …
