FlixChatter Review: LUCK (2022)

Luck has the distinction of being Apple TV's first animated feature, which is part of an exclusive deal with Skydance Animation. The movie aims for Pixar quality, especially since it's got former Disney/Pixar's chief creative officer John Lasseter as a producer.

FlixChatter Review: The Sparks Brothers (2021)

Director: Edgar Wright Cast: Ron Mael, Russell Mael, Jane Wiedlin, Beck, Flea, Tony Visconti, Todd Rundgren, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost   As a kid growing up in 1983, I’d watch Sparks’ Cool Places air a few times on MTV – back when it actually was “Music Television” instead of the reality TV monstrosity it’s become …

FlixChatter Review – Mission Impossible: Fallout (2018)

The Mission: Impossible film franchise is one of the few that somehow got better and better after its third sequel struggle to make a dent at the box office.

FlixChatter Review: Mission Impossible Rogue Nation

I've been a fan of this long-standing franchise even from the first one by Brian De Palma. Looking back, it certainly was a more cerebral, somber affair as it took itself way too seriously. It might've been the fourth movie when the film took a decidedly lighter tone, but amped up the action to be even …
