New screenwriters of Splinter Cell movie

Things seem to be rolling along for Tom Hardy's Splinter Cell film, which has a director, but evidently not a strong enough screenplay. Up in the Air writer Sheldon Turner has come on board to rewrite the screenplay...

John Logan talks Bond 24 and the return of S.P.E.C.T.R.E.

Sometimes do you just sit around and wonder why there isn't more news about the next James Bond film, momentarily titled Bond 24? No? Well, I do and so it's with great pleasure I bring myself (and you by proxy) news from scre...

Review: 3 Days to Kill photo
Review: 3 Days to Kill
by Michael Jordan

3 Days to Kill is oddly complicated, and it has the potential to lose people right from the start. To understand this review you will have to keep that in mind, as what the movie appears to be and what the actual movie is are two totally different things.

With that said, you are going to want to see 3 Days to Kill, even if the ride to the end of this roller coaster is extremely bumpy.

Flix for Short: Spy vs. Guy

Spy vs. Guy, written and directed by Seth Worley for software company Red Giant (who's short film, Tempo, we've featured before on Flixist), is basically what its namesake says. It's about a spy who needs who retrieve a devi...

De Niro and LaBeouf to star in Spy's Kid

No, no. Not Spy Kids, though that would be kind of awesome in a really horrible way, Spy's Kid. If the name didn't tip you off the film, which Paramount just announced will star Robert De Niro and Shia LeBeouf, is a spy movie...

John Logan taking on writing duties for Bond 24 and 25

Bet you didn't expect news about a Bond sequel so soon did ya? Hell, Skyfall hasn't even released in the states yet! Of course, that doesn't really mean anything when it comes to the Bond franchise, because it's not like we'r...

Losing My Virginity: The Spy Who Loved Me
by Nick Valdez

[Losing My Virginity articles are reviews written by someone who still hasn't seen an incredibly popular movie after all these years. LMV reviews are interesting in that they can offer the perspective of a person who's untainted by the cloud of commonness that surrounded a famous film of the past, and also show how well it has stood the test of time.]

I have never seen a James Bond movie before now. Well, completely anyway. I've seen bits and pieces of Dr. No,I know of Goldeneye because of that too-cool-for-school Nintendo 64 game, and I know that James Bond has supervillains because of that one episode of The Simpsons. My point is, I've managed to not see any of the fifty (FIFTY!) years worth of Bond films for some reason or another. This brings us to The Spy Who Loved Me.

Since this was my first foray into the Bondverse, I had no idea where to start. Should I have gone recent and just watch the Craig films, or should I start at the beginning with Connery? Matt suggested I started at TSWLM since Moore's absurdity is a nice way of easing into the Bond behemoth. And he was absolutely right.

The Spy Who Loved Me is a delicious burrito. Its meaty insides have a compelling Bond and dangerously cheesy lines and sequences, all while wrapped in a tortilla of pure wacky fun.

Daniel Craig to be in at least two more Bond films

I'm not sure this will surprise anyone, but Daniel Craig's contract obligates him to at least five films for the Bond franchise. If my calculations are correct, that would leave two more after next month's Skyfall. How is thi...

Trailer: Argo

I love how Ben Affleck's evolved as an entertainer. We all cackled and laughed at him back in the day, largely from the whole Jennifer Lopez crap, and a lot of us had written him off. Then with the two-shot of Gone Baby Gone...

Trailer: Safe House

Usually, I'm not really one for big-budget action movies. This however, looks pretty awesome. Safe House stars Denzel Washington as an infamous CIA agent who goes rouge and Ryan Reynolds as an inexperienced, mid-level agency...
