Written & Directed by M. Night Shyamalan Starring: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson I collected comic books as a kid during the late 70s through the 80s.

FlixChatter Review: The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

Did you that if you type 'Tarzan' on IMDb, there'd be about 200 titles popped up since 1918 all the way to 2016. So yeah, you could say that Edgar Rice Burroughs' titular character has been adapted to death in various formats. But hey, Hollywood loves to recycle stuff over and over, and this one promises to …

FlixChatter Review: The Hateful Eight (2015)

Continuing his obsession with the spaghetti western genre, Quentin Tarantino has made another self-indulgent film that may divide some of his hardcore fan-base. Personally I thought it’s an entertaining picture but not one of QT’s best films. Set in a post-civil war Wyoming winter storm, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) is deserted on the …

FlixChatter Review: Robocop (2014)

The original version of RoboCop holds a special place in my heart, not only it's one of the best films of the 80s, it actually converted me to become a hard core shoot'em up action fanatic. Being that I was born in the Far East, I grew up watching martial arts films, lots and lots …
