About
Nick Valdez likes chick flicks, kid flicks, dick flicks, and skin flicks. Also musicals (Glee!). One time, he wrote a 15 page thesis on the training montage's effect on the hero's journey in Rocky. His favorite film is Zoolander or Machete. If he could mix the two and create Zoochete, he would in a heartbeat. One day he wishes to travel across the United States "David Banner" style while dragging around a player piano or that orangutan from Every Which Way But Loose.

First trailer for Ping Pong Summer

By the looks of this first official trailer for Michael Tully's Ping Pong Summer, we're going to get a critical, yet loving look at 80s sports films. Or even 80s films in general. Taking place in 1985, a kid named Rad Miracl...   more

First trailer for Richard Linklater's Boyhood

Boyhood was the one film at SXSW I regret not seeing. Since Matt was covering it, we couldn't double up. Then it ended up being fantastic and oof, I won't make that same mistake twice. With Boyhood, Richard Linklater has don...   more

First trailer for Batman: Assault on Arkham looks boring

Taking place within the same world as the Arkham series of Batman videogames (rather than the New 52 the DC animated films are in now) is Batman: Assault on Arkham. As the straight to home video DC films are hit and miss (fo...   more

Box Office Numbers: Still Livin' in America

For the third week in a row, Captain America: The Winter Soldier claimed the top spot at the box office this weekend with $26 million. Although it's surprising since a whole host of new, mediocre looking films released this p...   more

Flix for Short: Darwyn Cooke's Batman Beyond

Boy did I love Batman Beyond. It was a sequel to the Batman: The Animated Series (technically Justice League Unlimited and Static Shock also), starred my main man from Boy Meets World (and Kim Possible) Will Friedle, bu...   more

Rogue gets to be in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all

With the seemingly endless amount of big name stars and characters in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, it's hard not to believe some of those characters would be left on the cutting room floor. One of those chara...   more

These Maleficent images are just so pretty

I honestly can't express how excited I am for Maleficent. I'm a huge fan of the Disney Princess films (I'm a Princess at heart, you know), and a fan of Angelina Jolie, so Maleficent is like a peanut butter meets chocolate sit...   more

Mrs. Doubtfire sequel in the works, Robin Williams returning

Although it's been in development hell for years after the original Mrs. Doubtfire first made big money in theaters, it seems that Mrs. Doubtfire 2 is finally happening. Most likely fueled by Robin Williams' return to the pub...   more

First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Obvious Child is one of the films I regret missing out on during SXSW. It stars Jenny Slate, in her first starring role (though she's played numerous, fabulous supporting roles), as a comedienne who's life takes an unexpecte...   more

Netflix Now: Anyone else watching American Idol? Edition

I've really been digging this season of American Idol. Despite the ridiculous amount of cuts to Jennifer Lopez during the performances, most of the contestants this year have been great. And the new judging panel isn't too ba...   more

Red Band trailer for Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks

As Flixist's News Editor, I've seen so many trailers they eventually start bleeding into each other. Premises start sounding the same, jokes sound the same, and then things stop being entertaining. And then there's Walk of S...   more

Final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past

First trailer for Intramural, a sports parody featuring SNL cast members

I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies as they all tend to look the same. But every once in a while, something new comes along and manages to rock the sports genre with its uniqueness. Intramural might make it close to tha...   more

A Most Wanted Man looks to be a great film that is going to fly under a lot of folks' radars. It's got everything you want. It's based on a novel, it's a spy thriller, and it stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe, and ...   more

Second How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer spoils dragons

Much like the first full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2, this second trailer continues to spoil a lot of the movie. But rather than spoil the entirety of the film's plot, we only get a bit of it. It's a shame because...   more

X-Men: Days of Future Past gets the worst posters

Fox has always had the worst luck with promoting its X-Men films. From X-Men to X-Men: First Class, they can never seem to put an adequate poster together. With Days of Future Past bringing the largest cast in the franchise, ...   more
