First trailer for Spring, starring Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker

For almost half of this trailer, Spring holds its cards tight against its chest, that it only needs the slightest tip of its hand to get me interested. This story of a romance between an American backpacker and an Itali...

Review: Boy Meets Girl

Boy Meets Girl is an antique magic mirror. The kind of thing you'd see in a movie. In an old, cobweb-filled antique shop, the camera slowly pans up an old, cracked and unpolished mirror. It's not really much to look at, ...

First full trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

I liked the first Divergent film enough. Although it's basically a thinly veiled message of "Everyone sucks but me because I'm different," everything was just super cheesy and bad looking enough to work. It's better than the...

Trailer for romcom Elsa & Fred starring Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer

You're never too old for a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. That's seriously all this movie is. The same old MPDG song and dance; a grumpy man finds pseudo-salvation in the romance of a quirky, happy-go-lucky possibly mentally unstab...

Watch: two new featurettes for Obvious Child are obviously adorable

Look guys, I'm not a huge rom-com kind of girl. They're usually too saccharine and unreal for me. Obvious Child, however, looks more my speed. Written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, Obvious Child stars the adorable and...

Review: The Fault in Our Stars

I did not enjoy John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. The narration was precocious and cloying, the dialogue simply ridiculous, and any attempts at pathos were laughable; a novel collectively written by the people b...

Review: Frequencies

I'll be honest here. When Frequencies was first pitched to me, I didn't know if it could work. It's being billed as a romance with a slight tinge of science fiction, and to be completely honest, those films usually don't turn...

SXSW Review: The Infinite Man photo
SXSW Review: The Infinite Man
by Matthew Razak

Usually the first movie you watch for a festival is a bit of a let down. You're super excited for the festival to kick off and you've hyped yourself up so much that almost nothing is going to stand up to your expectations of what that first movie is going to deliver. The Infinite Man is my first movie of SXSW and I went in not really expecting one of my faves of the festival so not meeting my already middling expectations would have been pretty bad.

What I came out with was a possible contender for one of the top spots at SXSW. (Hopefully after seeing the rest that the festival has to offer it's a close competition because I'd love for all the movies to be this enjoyable.)

[From March 7th - 16th, Flixist will be providing coverage from South by Southwest 2014 in Austin, TX.  Prepare yourselves for reviews, interviews, features, photos, videos, and all types of shenanigans!]
