FlixChatter Review: Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

It’s been ten years since Mel Gibson's last directed a film; the violent adventure Apocalypto was a mild success for the controversial actor and director. Many thought that film would be a comeback for Gibson, but then his personal life took another controversial hit and he’s been out of the limelight for a few years. …

MSPIFF 2015 Reviews: Belle et Sébastien + The Keeping Room

Belle et Sebastien Despite being sometimes sappy and overly safe, Belle et Sébastien still mostly succeeds, primarily because Sebastian (Felix Bossuet) and Belle (a dog) are captivatingly adorable.

FlixChatter Review: SABOTAGE

Just like his pal Sly Stallone, Arnold Schwarzegger is trying to reclaim his glory days as the box office king of the 80s and 90s by starring in action films again in the 21st century. So far though, both them have had more duds than hits and I'm afraid this trend will continue with Arnold's …

Question of the Week: Are you looking forward to AVATAR sequels?

It just dawned on me that it's been over four years since AVATAR was released. I remember it was quite a big deal back in 2009. I remember getting advanced screenings (this was before I was on the press list, mind you) and I was soooooo excited! I even had a countdown post like I …

TEN Notable Foreign Actors to Watch – Where Are They Now?

I first published this list back in November 2009, and I've been wanting to do an update in a while, thanks to the suggestion from Iba @ ILuvCinema. As I said back then, this kind of list is a matter of opinion/preference, and it's impossible to please everyone. This one in particular is not meant …

FlixChatter Review: Clash of the Titans

Critics be darned once again! Clash of the Titans defied the dismal review (31% Tomatometer) to soar past $60 million to capture the number 1 box office spot (it's already earned over 100 mil worldwide). WOW, it surely is kraken-ka-ching for honchos at Warner Bros, as it'll make up its $125 million production cost quicker …

A couple of updates on two upcoming movies I'll be seeing this Spring. First, we've got the Clash of the Titans' new behind-the-scene featurette.

Weekend Roundup: The Edge of Love, The Young Victoria and Avatar

Two indie flicks and a giant blockbuster, that's the three movies I watched this weekend. It may seem absurd to you but I just finally signed up with Netflix again after 2+ yrs of terminating its membership. Vanessa wondered how I filled my time before that, and the answer is, well, the old-fashioned way. I'm …

Ever since that flick came out, roughly 99% of the search terms listed on my blog dashboard is …
