Hey everyone, let's talk about Frank Miller!

So...Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is definitely a thing that exists. Whether or not it's good doesn't matter anymore since it bombed pretty hard this past weekend. As always with Flixist Community Discusses, I want to get som...

Hey everyone, let's talk about Guardians of the Galaxy!
by Nick Valdez

A few weeks back, I started this segment where I gathered the community's opinions on big movies. It's been gone for awhile due to a lack of interesting films, but now's a good time to bring it back as any. So what did you all think of Guardians of the Galaxy? I liked it, but didn't love it enough to put it in our "Great" category. 

I'm interested as to what you all think, so I'll gather all of your responses (labeled with who wrote them, of course), and pepper in some responses from the Flixist staff, into one post as "Flixist Community Discusses."

Leave a comment below, hit me up on Twitter (@Valdezology), or even send me an email at nick@flixist.com (if you have anything particularly spoilery). The community post will go live Friday, August 8th at 12PM CST, so I'll be taking responses until then!

Where does Guardians of the Galaxy stand, Flixist community? Would you let this movie guard your galaxy? Get your opinions in folks!

Hey everyone, let's talk about X-Men: Days of Future Past!

UPDATE: Last day for those opinions!  Since the last two editions have been met with success, let's try another Flixist Community Discusses for X-Men: Days of Future Past! This time the criticism I've seen has most defin...

Hey everyone, let's talk about Godzilla!
by Nick Valdez

After the success of our last Flixist Community Discusses (featuring The Amazing Spider-Man 2), let's have another go around with Godzilla. Once again, through talk on Twitter, film critics, and friends, I've been getting a lot of mixed feedback with Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. I've yet to see the film myself (but that should have changed by the time you read this), but I'm now a bit warier than I was before. 

But, I need your opinions on the matter folks. If you've seen the movie, I want a reason why you may have liked or disliked the film. I'll gather all of your responses (labeled with who wrote them, of course), and pepper in some responses from the Flixist staff, into one post as "Flixist Community Discusses."

If you're ready, leave a comment below, hit me up on Twitter (@Valdezology), or even send me an email at nick@flixist.com. The community post will go live Friday, May 23rd at 12PM CST, so I'll be taking responses until then!

Where does Godzilla stand, Flixist community? King of the Monsters or the King of the Losers?

Hey everyone, let's talk about The Amazing Spider-Man 2!
by Nick Valdez

From all of the talk I've seen here in the comments, on Twitter, and other film critics, everyone seems to be divided with The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Much like the response to the first film, we have both extreme negative and positive reactions to the sequel. Some out right hate the thing, and some really enjoyed it. I want to get to the bottom of this, so I'm going to need the help of the Flixist community. 

If you've seen the movie, I want a reason why you may have liked or disliked the film. I'll gather all of your responses (labeled with who wrote them, of course), and pepper in some responses from the Flixist staff, into one post as "Flixist Community Discusses." If we all talk, and we see the varied opinions of all of you folks, I'm sure we'll get to the root of Spider-Man 2's problem. I think this can be fun! 

So, if you're ready, leave a comment below, hit me up on Twitter (@Valdezology), or even send me an email at nick@flixist.com. The community post will go live Thursday, May 8th at 12PM CST, so I'll be taking responses until then! Hope you'll join the conversation!

Ask Flixistentialism questions...one last time...

If you're a fan of Flixistentialism, you've probably seen this coming for a while now. We tried our best to make it work, and we had a real fun go at it (I know I did!), but our time's sadly come up. But we're not leaving you...

Ask Flixistentialism some questions before Black Friday

Whoa, another Flixistentialism is happening already? We're really spoiling you guys here. I think we want to record tonight because next week the gang'll be too busy stuffing ourselves with bird carcasses like the zoo defilin...

Flixistentialism is back, back again, so ask questions!

Sorry for the Flixistentialism hiatus, you guys. We tried to make stuff happen, but our schedules failed to mix up. Last week it almost worked too, but my car was nearly stolen so that kind of threw a rock into our plans! &nb...

Flixistentialism is back so give us them questions

Is a two week break considered long enough to be a hiatus? Whatever it was, the three of us took a brief relaxation period because none of us could get our schedules situated. But now Flixistenialism is back and recording ton...

Flixistentialism is still rated R, so ask us questions

So the new Robocop is rated PG-13 (which means it's not cool enough for an  R anymore), but luckily for you, Flixistentialism is still rated R. What would a PG-13 Flixistentialism even be? Like two seconds of Liz? Whatev...

Flixistentialism is the new black, so ask us questions

I've jumped into Jenji Kohan's Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, about two days ago and I haven't stopped watching it since. I'm on episode seven right now and I'm probably going to talk about it much to the chagr...

Flixistentialism needs those questions, mang

I just listened to Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail album last night so it's all I've been thinking about. I'll probably talk about it some since there were some strong feelings. But besides that, got any questions for us? Do as you normally do. Drop you question in the comments below or tweet at us: @dredose (Dre), @LizRugg (Liz), or @Valdezology (ME).

We need Flixistentialism questions on repeat y'all

I just recently saw Spring Breakers so I'm itching to talk about it. If you have any questions about the movie, I definitely want them. Either way, Flixistentialism is back from its brief break and look at our sh*t. We got sh...

Ask Flixistentialism questions or I'll eat this shoe

Flixistentialism is back and recording tonight after its week hiatus (blame Liz and her magic milkshakes), so you should ask us questions! If not, I'll be forced to eat this shoe. I don't want to eat the shoe, but I will sinc...

Ask Flixistentialism some questions because we love you

Ask us questions so we could answer them

Ask us questions or there won't be a Fast & Furious 6

You're probably thinking to yourself "Does Dre really have the power to cancel Fast and Furious 6? I mean, billions of dollars were spent on the production and promotion on this film". The real question you should be asking yourself is "DO I REALLY WANT TO TAKE THAT RISK IN CASE HE CAN!?" Do yourself a favor, ask us questions.

Ask us questions, Tiny Dancer

On New Years night, towards the close of the night, me and a couple friends were at a bar all whiskey-ed out and exhausted. But then, Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" came on and we found enough energy to belt the f*ck out of that ...
