Transformers 5 probably happening in 2017

With Transformers: Age of Extinction looking to reboot the Transformers series, and with it most likely making lots of money, it's sadly natural that the follow up would already be discussed. According to some leaked toy docu...

Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction photo
Super Bowl TV spot for Transformers: Age of Extinction
by Nick Valdez

Folks, this might be the Transformers movie we've all been waiting for. While this official Super Bowl spot is short, it gives us more information than we can handle. In fact, this looks like a completely different series. Gone are the Labeoufs, random hot girl poses, and military action, and here in its place is the lovable (and more action oriented) Mark Wahlberg, a girl who plays his daughter instead of love interest, oh and DINOBOTS. 

Yes the dinosaur robots rumored and teased for the better half of a year have finally been revealed. AND OPTIMUS PRIME RIDES A TYRANNOSAURUS REX. It all looks so good, I'm willing to forgive the other films and look at this from a positive angle from now on. It just looks fun. Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls out June 27th.

Michael Bay doesn't apologize for the Transformers movies

Remember Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? Neither do I. But apparently Michael Bay does. It all started when Yahoo visited the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Michael Bay reportedly stated that the fourth film...

International trailer for RoboCop answers a big question

While the other two trailers for RoboCop didn't exactly light the world on fire with their generic overtones, this international trailer for the film at least answers a big question I've had with the upcoming reboot. Is Murp...

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 could have been worse

First RoboCop poster looks Dredd-ful

Remember when the first trailer for the RoboCop remake came out and I thought it looked like Dredd? Well the first official poster for the film isn't really helping matters much. It's the "all black" look of the new RoboCop t...

First trailer for RoboCop remake has cops and robots

Ever since the first set photos of the new RoboCop's armor leaked onto the Internet, Flixist has been in a state of somewhat worry. Max thought the armor looked okay, but most of us were a little taken aback by the sleeker look. Then fishy sounding things began happening: the delay to February 2014, the multiple casting switches, the supposed script leak, and of course, the PG-13 rating

Well now that the first trailer is here, how is it? It's...okay. It's not bad, but not great either. As of now, the whole thing screams "average." I hope future trailers can change that since we have a good amount of time before it hits. RoboCop takes no prisoners (technically he could) February 7th next year.

Transformers 4 now Transformers: Age of Extinction photo
Transformers 4 now Transformers: Age of Extinction
by Nick Valdez

Transfomers: Dark of the Moon may not have been the best thing since, uh, Dark Side of the Moon, but it performed well enough to justify a sequel. But what can Trans4mers, now officially titled Transformers: Age of Extinction, do? In the third film every bad robot guy is like totally dead and their home planet got like so black holed, so what could possibly come next? Apparently, there's an answer for that: Dinosaur Robots. 

While the Dinobots (a popular troop of dinosaur robots from the cartoon) aren't confirmed, a synopsis was revealed a while back that stated "an ancient, powerful Transformer menace" will threaten Marky Mark (who's now the lead of the film instead of Shia LeBeouf) and the Funky Bots. And really, what else can Bay pull out of his butt? Included in the gallery is the teaser poster that reveals the title of the film and hints at the "post-apocalyptic wasteland" feel. What do you all think? You ready for some hot robot on dinosaur action? Transformers: Age of Extinction rolls out into theaters June 27th next year.

Review: Pacific Rim photo
Review: Pacific Rim
by Matthew Razak

When talking about Pacific Rim you really have to start with expectations. Expectations for this particular film were all over the place. Those who just saw the trailers simply thought it was yet another giant robot movie with lots of destruction. Those who were aware that Guillermo del Toro was directing the film knew better. Del Toro is original and interesting and we already know he can turn a science fiction film into something special thanks to Hellboy. Pacific Rim for these people had some pretty high expectations.

Those people (myself included) were pretty darn wrong. Those people simply with giant robot expectations were pretty damn right. Damn you, expectations.
