Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim hits stores today, meaning the movie may turn a decent profit yet on top of the Chinese box office returns. By far, this is the biggest new release this week, with The Heat starring Sandra Bul...
The big new release of the week is the in-name-only adaptation of World War Z. Once maligned and expected to tank, the movie wound up being profitable and there's talk of a sequel. Other big new things this week include Sofia...
Hubert's off for the week, so it's my pleasure to tell you that my personal favorite movie of all time, Darren Aranofsky's Requiem for a Dream, has officially hit Netflix. Actually, there's a number of awesome movies this we...
I know there was some crazy stuff that happened in the music industry over the weekend that everyone's been talking about on the internet, so I figured we should address the matter here on Flixist. I'm speaking, of course, ab...


When I was a kid, I used to watch the same three or four episodes of Spaceketeers (aka Starzinger) on a VHS tape over and over again. I never knew how the series ended or where the story was going to go, but I just kept watch...
The big new release this week is Antoine Fuqua's White House Down, starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman. Oh, sorry, I meant Olympus Has Fallen, starring Channing Tatum as Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx as Aaron Eckhart, and R...
The Criterion Collection put out The Devil's Backbone on DVD and Blu-ray this week, one of Guillermo Del Toro's bona fide masterpieces. This is the second Del Toro movie in the Criterion Collection, the other being his f...
Guys! The first New York Alamo Drafthouse is opening this weekend! Sure, it's up in Yonkers and a bajillion miles from my apartment, but I'm going to do my darndest to get up there. It's staff training weekend, so there'll be...
This week's set of new releases is making you very sleepy. You feel a sudden urge to give me all of your money, or at least enough for me to buy a breakfast sandwich tomorrow, because breakfast sandwiches are delicious and I ...
As many of you already know, Barnes & Noble is doing their 50% off sale for the Criterion Collection. We offered some staff recommendations for available Criterion Collection titles earlier in the week. This is a time whe...
The Criterion Collection is amazing, but it could always be more amazing. The ever-expanding list of films (so much of which is worth buying) has some pretty big gaps. So that's why I'm here: to help coax the company into cho...
It's that time again: the sun is up and both game and movie lovers go back into their caves to enjoy their respective hobbies. For gamers, Valve's Summer Sale is in full swing; for cinephiles, it's Barnes & Nobles' 50% Cr...
Another week means more new releases, fellas. I have no clever intro this week because I am just that tired. There are three biggies this week on the new release side: Evil Dead, 42, and Bullet to the Head. On the re-release ...
Of all things that are coming out on Blu-ray today, there's the bats**t crazy cult film Street Trash. There are melting bodies, exploding homeless people, scenes of extreme violence, lots of gore, and something to offend ever...
I've been sick for the last three weeks, and it's gone from being unpleasant to just downright annoying. After looking up my symptoms online, I'm led to believe that I'm suffering from The Scriverner's Lung, The Hipster Drops...
We don't usually highlight the TV releases on DVD and Blu-ray, but since this week is light on the movie side, we're making an exception. The biggie this week is Doctor Who: Series Seven - Part Two, which includes "The Name o...
It's a week of many new releases and re-releases on DVD and Blu-ray. Leading the way is Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the big screen The Last Stand, along with the horror anthology The ABCs of Death, the Jason Statham fli...
First off, sorry this edition of New Releases is a day later than usual. Running behind with lots of things this week. Netflix Now will also be a day late. I owe you an ice cream.* The new releases this week include Jack Reac...
Howdy, folks, and welcome to this week's new releases, a sort of pre-Tribeca reprieve for me. This week boasts two genre deconstructions. The biggie is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx (who, as Nick p...
It's another slow week on the DVD/Blu-ray release front. The most high-profile title is the disappointing Hyde Park on Hudson, which features Bill Murray as FDR. (More accurately, Bill Murray doing an impersonation of Cary Gr...
A Los Angeles based artist who goes by the name Midnight Marauder has been quietly pumping out some incredible, unofficial movie posters over the last few years. Midnight Marauder (let's call him/her MM) seems to be inspired ...
Today is the day that Steven Spielberg's Lincoln rolls onto DVD and Blu-ray. I think Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt are my favorite U.S. Presidents. Both were supreme badasses in different ways. Lincoln steered the count...
