Guardians of the Galaxy has caused quite a stir in the Flixist Community. It's blown up on Twitter, Facebook, and I've even heard some of my non-fan friends discussing it for some reason. It's got the kind of pull I haven't s...

Trailer for The Book of Life continues to look bueno

The Book of Life, produced by Guillermo Del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (who once created one of my favorite cartoons ever, El Tigre), looks absolutely stunning. I've completely fallen for this Die de Muertos film s...

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy
by Nick Valdez

I should admit this outright. Whether it's the nature of my job, or the seemingly endless deluge of Marvel Studios news that we write on everyday, I've succumbed to Marvel fatigue. That's why I was instantly drawn to Guardians of the Galaxy. From the first trailer on it promised something entirely unique within the Marvel formula, and although it too is a stepping stone within Marvel Studios' grander scheme, it stood out for good reasons. 

With a quirky director whose only done smaller projects, a star studded cast painted green and voicing things like animated raccoons and trees, its 70s rock inspired soundtrack, and its complete foray into comic book oddities, Guardians of the Galaxy could've easily been Marvel's biggest failure.

Good thing it's not.

See Guardians of the Galaxy early and free

Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my most anticipated Marvel movie in ever. It looks like it's finally shaking up the stale franchises for good. And if not, at least it's got a great cast at the center. So for some lucky fo...

Second trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
by Nick Valdez

I'm still trying to figure out the hype for Guardians of the Galaxy. While I'm looking forward to it (the cast is phenomenal), it seems so much attention is being paid to this. To be blunt, when we usually post a second trailer for a film, it doesn't get the big banner. But anyhoo, it's Marvel's weirdest and most original property yet (the first non-numbered film in a while) so yay! Also looking damn cool probably helps. 

Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Benecio Del Toro, Glenn Close and many more interesting folks. Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st. Here's a synopsis and poster:

Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana in Avatar forever

There is more Avatar coming. A lot more. It may be taking a while, but that's because these are really big complicated movies and James Cameron's ego has to be appeased. No matter how long it takes it appears that tall, blue ...

First official image of Guardians of the Galaxy is great

Guardians of the Galaxy is quickly shaping up to be my most anticipated film of the year. While I may have begun feeling fatigue from comic book movies as 2013 provided lots of brilliant, non-comic book films, I think I'm rea...

Review: Out of the Furnace
by Michael Jordan

When I sat down to watch Out of the Furnace, I had nothing but high hopes for the film. The trailers looked amazing and suspenseful and the premise seemed engaging. Plus, how could I possibly get burned on a film that stars some of my favorite actors?

Before I knew it I was already covered in gasoline, and writer-director Scott Cooper was lighting a match.
