Action

First things first. Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible 5, featuring the incredibly awesome and incredibly real high flying plane stunt, is now officially titled Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Secondly, this trail...
It's impossible to talk about The Gunman without discussing Taken. Everything director Pierre Morel ever does is going to be compared to it. And by starring Sean Penn, The Gunman invites those comparisons. Take...
Dredd may not have performedd well at the box office, but there was still some hope of a possible sequel. Star Karl Urban saidd talks were underway about a new film, and there was even an online petition startedd for a Dredd ...
Dolph Lundgren was that one action star that should've been as big as Stallone, Schwarzenegger, or Van Damme but just never took off for some reason. He starred in as many films as those three, he always gives 100% regardles...
San Andreas looks like the best kind of cheese. A disaster blockbuster that would've been more acceptable twenty years ago as landmarks get destroyed by tidal waves, a too serious tone sets the awkward mood, and all while a ...
I don't think I've ever talked about it here, but Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods was one of the funnest animated films I saw last year. Didn't give it enough credit because it was essentially an hour of a dude punching a giant...
We here at Flixist love the people at Subway Cinema. Not only do they put on the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) and the New York Korean Film Festival, they also hold a great showcase of classic martial arts movies here ...
Terminator: Genisys is slowly turning things around. After being easily mocked for both its ridiculous name and its ridiculous first look images the film landed with a solid trailer. I'm not actually excited for it yet, ...
I'm not a huge anime or manga fan (I'll stick to One Piece thank you very much), but I really dug Rurouni Kenshin and the films adapted from the series. The story of a former assassin who's turned a new leaf and refuses to k...
From Hitchcock's Rope in 1948 to Birdman, Alejandro González Iñárritu's movie up for Best Picture this Sunday, and everywhere in between, filmmakers have been consistently playing with the idea...
One of the weirdest films coming out of Warner Bros and DC's upcoming film slate is definitely the supervillain team up film, Suicide Squad. Normally I'd make some joke about a bland white guy replacing a bland white guy...
THE DREAM IS REAL! Or it will be in a year. 
Can you feel that? That's me getting way too excited by a far too short feature on the beginning of shooting on Spectre in Austria and a single image of Daniel Craig as Bond. Sony released both the video and image today...
For one of the more successful series in gaming it's really odd that Hitman failed in its first iteration as a film. While the movie didn't all out suck, they sure squandered the totally awesome idea of a genetically en...
Furious 7 is definitely my most anticipated film of 2015. Over big science fantasy action, man dancing, and comic book shenanigans, Furious 7 is the biggest sequel of the year. But I'm trying to not let myself get too excite...
Pack it up, every other movie of 2015. You're done. I'm calling it now, there won't be a better scene this year than the final shot of Furious 7's Super Bowl spot. I've still got goosebumps! Furious 7 releases April 3rd.&nbs...
In an effort to dodge the hefty competition brought by the new James Bond film and Disney with their new indie endeavor Star Wars in December, Paramount has brought Mission: Impossible up an astounding five months from t...
As good as the films of 2014 were, you know what was even better? The animals. There were lots of standout roles for animals this year, both real and imaginary. In almost every film I watched, there was some cute dog or cat h...
We've seen more sequels released the last few years than we have in a long time. While 2015 seems to continue that trend, last year showed that we shouldn't automatically write off a film just because it's a sequel. I've seen...
Taken was great. Taken 2 was...not as good. When I heard that Taken 3 was going to exist, I sighed, because I knew, knew, that I'd feel obligated to finish what I started. So, on Saturday morning, I sat with ticket in ha...
I don't know about you all, but I miss the super dramatic Liam Neeson. Sure his latest career trend has been awesome, and in reverse as you'd expect a young man to take on a bunch of action films and gradually join Oscar nom...
It's been a bumpy road for Marvel's Ant-Man. From former director Edgar Wright publicly leaving the project, to multiple writers tackling rewrites, to multiple cast additions late in production, the odds have certainly been ...
