Netflix Now: #ThanksObama Edition


Netflix Instant additions for the week!
May 21
Well, the POTUS with the MOSTUS has joined Twitter. There's some kind of gag in here somewhere, but this all seems way too surreal to be funny. In the few hours he's been on Twitter, he's already taken a jab at Bill Clinton, ... read

First trailer for Cooties starring Elijah Wood and zombie fourth graders


Circle, circle, dot, dot...
May 21
I don't think I've ever talked about how much I love Elijah Wood's career. He's willing to take chances on the weirdest, and most far out projects. He doesn't always succeed, but he seems like the type of actor that's game fo... read

Transformers

Transformers sequels have found their writers, including Robert Kirkman


More than writes the eye
May 21
Remember that weird sounding "writers room" Paramount was trying to set up for Transformers sequels and spin-offs Jackson wrote about some time ago? To make the whole thing weirder, we now know who's a part of it. Seemingly f... read

Newest Pan trailer looks gorgeous

I'm not sure what to think about yet another reboot/prequel/whatever the hell this is, but Pan looks amazing. It's directed by Joe Wright, it's got a great cast with Hugh Jackman, Rooney Mara, and Garrett Hedlund, and I don't... read

Newest trailer for Pixels is gamey


Sort of like how deer meat tastes
May 19
I have a hard time figuring out exactly who Pixels is made for. Is it for the man children that Adam Sandler has spent his entire career trying to sell to, or is it for folks who'd recognize videogames in general? In the same... read

First official trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials


Smokin'
May 19
Although I don't remember liking The Maze Runner too much, I did appreciate what it did differently from all of the other Young Adult book films floating around. A testosterone riddled film full of run and gun dumb action. It... read

Box Office Numbers: Pitchy, dawg


"It's a little pitchy, dawg."
May 18
Like most folks last weekend, I was torn between seeing Mad Max and Pitch Perfect 2. With only enough time and money allowing only one of the two, I chose Fury Road because my roommates have done the same. I was originally go... read
Jem Movie Trailer photo
Bit less outrageous than I'd hoped

"I'll be back."

X-Men: Days of Future Past is getting a 'Rogue Cut'


Days of Future Rogue
May 06
One of my biggest issues with X-Men: Days of Future Past was how many characters it tried to squeeze into its movie (which is why I'm always worrying about the sequel, Apocalypse, which is ramping up that number everyday). An... read

People keep asking...
People keep asking if I'm back. Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back. We didn't review John Wick here on Flixist (which was a major oversight on my part because I saw it during my vacation that weekend and totally didn't write on it... read feature

Squad on fleek

Now that Suicide Squad's filming is underway, and we've seen Jared Leto's "damaged" Joker (which led to all sorts of tattooed shenanigans). So now we get a full look at the entire cast in costume! Couldn't tell you who was wh... read

Sony's really putting all of their eggs in one basket. Banking on the few films that work, Sony's slowing turning all of their properties (and future properties) into huge universes. Starting with Spider-Man, continuing on wi... read

First trailer for The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel


Apr 30
To me, Vin Diesel can do no wrong. Regardless of his odder career choices in the past, I've always dug his genuine love for his work. He's a nerdy dude who loves trying out crazier roles and his latest film seems like the cra... read

M. Night Shyamalan has had quite a lopsided career. I tend to dig more of his efforts than not, but after The Last Airbender and After Earth I'm not so sure. Maybe a return to his horror thriller roots might do the trick? Thi... read
