FlixChatter Review: Ex Machina

There have been a plethora of films about man and machine or man vs machine in Hollywood. From cult classics like Blade Runner, Terminator to most recent ones like Robot & Frank, Chappie, etc., clearly not all are created equal. I'd say that this Alex Garland's original story has some striking similarities to the 2013 …

Wordless Wednesday: 7 Favorite Scenes of Man & Machine

Hello everyone! It's a bit late and I already skipped a month without Wordless Wednesday, ahah well I guess I'm consistent at being inconsistent in keeping up with my own blog series, ahah. In any case, as I did in my previous Wordless Wednesday on Emma Thompson, I choose a random Wednesday of the month …

FlixChatter Review: Spike Jonze’s HER

Once in a while, a film you hadn't heard much about suddenly sneaked in and took your breath away. In 2013, that film for me was HER. In its simplistic terms, Spike Jonze's sci-fi drama is about a guy who falls in love with an Operating System. Yes, that alone is downright bizarre, which at …

One of my favorite films of the last decade was the low-budget sci-fi movie District 9. In my review, I said that it’s such a distinctly moving, poignant and provocative film that makes you ponder long after the end credits roll.

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 …

Musings on Blade Runner: What does it mean to be human?

As promised in my Friday post, I finally saw the cult-favorite Blade Runner last Friday. I see what all the fuss is about now, and to those who vouched for its important place amongst the best sci-fi movies ever made, glad to say it didn't disappoint. It's impressive given this was made 20 years ago …

Flixchatter Review: District 9

It's nearly eleven hours since I saw the movie and its effect lingers with me still. I haven't been this blown away by something I saw at the movies since The Dark Knight last year. Just like that blockbuster, I can say this with confidence, BELIEVE THE HYPE. But unlike the caped crusader tale, District …
