New images for Terminator: Genisys still don't explain title spelling

Been dying for a nice long look at Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his role as the T100? Good, here's your chance. Empire has released a host of new images for the film and there's a nice one of Schwarzenegger looking down right handsome in his old age. Think he's wearing a girdle? Not much else new here, but at least they're better than the first look we had.  [via Collider]

Review: The Divergent Series: Insurgent

I never saw the original Divergent. I'm not a preteen girl or Flixist News Editor Nick Valdez, which means I have to ration my YA intake. I can only handle so many dystopian fantasies about chosen-ones that spend all the...

Newest Ex Machina trailer looks fantastic

I'm the kind of jerk that always has to make some sort of "Mr. Roboto" reference every time I see a film with an advanced robot or artificial intelligence, but Ex Machina is the first film in quite a while to make me second ...

Flixist Discusses: Neill Blomkamp

This past weekend saw the release of Chappie, third feature film from Neil Blomkamp, and it's safe to say reactions have been mixed. Per wrote a great review if you're on the fence about checking it out, but for those of...

Rumor: Tron 3 to star production in the Fall

When TRON: Legacy was released it was announced that it was the launch of a new franchise, and usually when a film is highly successful and is part of a franchise the rest of the movies come out pretty quick (disregardin...

Newest Tomorrowland Trailer is only a day away

Brad Bird's upcoming Tomorrowland is Disney's second attempt at turning one of their park attractions into a big film, but unlike the Pirates of the Caribbean series (which is starting work on the fifth one), Tomorrowland lo...

Review: Chappie

I really do adore Neill Blomkamp, and his first film, District 9, in particular. Although it doesn’t have as many fans as it did back in 2009, I still hold it up as one of the most spectacular debuts in recent years. Hi...

First trailer for Self/less is pretty much the entire movie

Self/less has the kind of awesome sci-fi premise that sounds unique, but also sounds like it's been done before. If you're interested in Self/less, it stars Ben Kingsley as a wealthy, but ill rich man who uses his fortune to...

Jessie Usher to star in Independence Day 2

First things first: yes, there is still an Independence Day 2. That's a movie that is actually going to exist, not just one that will be talked about in rumours and hypotheticals. I know. I'm scared too. Will Smith's not goin...

Harrison Ford returning for Blade Runner 2, director in talks

After Harrison Ford told Ridley Scott the Blade Runner 2 script was the best thing he's ever read, it appears he's finally signed on for the sequel. And now that the ball's rolling, Alcon Entertainment has a director in talks...

Flix For Short: The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep And Never Had To

Hey, I really like this. Essentially a proof of concept short from writer DC Pierson and director Dan Eckman (based on Pierson's novel), it's the story of teenage best friends who get into all sorts of trouble when one ...

Terminator: Genisys to release in IMAX 3D

Terminator: Genisys is slowly turning things around. After being easily mocked for both its ridiculous name and its ridiculous first look images the film landed with a solid trailer. I'm not actually excited for it yet, ...

Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film

When you write your list of perfect directors for the Alien franchise, where does Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie) fall in? Hope it's close to the top because after what seems like mon...

Chris Nolan and Rian Johnson discuss Interstellar

I wasn't a massive fan of Interstellar, with its insistence on hard sci-fi not meshing ultimately undermining the eventual shift to thematically resonant fantasy, but as a sci-fi film with ambition, I still care about it deep...

Review: Jupiter Ascending

I am a Wachowski defender. I have enjoyed if not down right liked every film they've made. Yes, even the second two Matrix films. If you insult Speed Racer I'll flip some tables. That movie was a kinetic and frantic mast...

Super Bowl TV spot for Terminator: Genisys

This Super Bowl spot for Terminator: Genisys may take a bit of footage from the first (hilariously convoluted) trailer, but there's a bit at the end that I'm most excited for. Also, it's really hard looking at this newest po...

The Star Trek films have a lot of lens flares

According to these videos from editor Dylan Browne, there are quite a few lens flares in the first two Star Trek films. Around 1500 of them apparently. In other Star Trek news, Simon Pegg is co-writing the third film with Doug Jung (Dark Blue) with Justin Lin still signed on to direct. Only good can come of this, right?  Or at the very least, more lens flares!  [via /Film]

2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it just wouldn't be fair to ignore the movies in the 11 through 15 slots. 

So let's get the ball rolling...

Star Wars standalone testing some awesome female leads

I'm not very interested in the main Star Wars series, but what has gotten my attention are the standalone spin-off films releasing in between the trilogy. With cooler directors, and possibly cooler stories, it's only natural ...

It was the best of films, it was the blurst of films. Hey everyone I'm Nick Valdez, News Editor here for Flixist and you've probably seen my name on a good chunk of the stuff written here. If not, then I'll tell you a bit about myself. I like movies, songs about butts, and pink frosted donuts. I'm going to get a tattoo of a mix of all three of those things someday. 

Oh but you're here for this list. I've reviewed 51 films this year, and that's way more than I've ever done for the site before. That also means I've been way more involved in 2014 films than in past years so this list has been particularly tough. So, I guess let's get to it then.
