Gratuitous Violence and Awkward Silence!

I had no idea what to expect when heading in to the theatre to watch the Ryan Gosling movie Drive. I had heard it was a terrible movie from some less than reputable sources (namely a couple friends with wildly different taste...   more



The (hopefully) everlasting zombie genre

I feel the zombie genre, over the past year or so, has sort of burnt itself out and is starting to slow down, which leaves me disappointed. Despite what people say I will always have a soft spot for the undead; from movies li...   more

Is Marvel's Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. slowly getting better?

So I started watching this show trying to keep my expectation low, but the first episode got me a little excited as it built off of the extremis idea from Iron Man 3. Since then I feel it has tried to check off as many clich...   more



Did Ender's Game move too fast?

I haven't read any of the books, but I have a friend who has, and by proxy I was kind of excited to see Ender's Game. Not really knowing what it was all about I went in not knowing what to expect. I was almost immediately bl...   more

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye

Well, today is my last day at Flixist. It's been a good and packed two-year run, but it's time to get back on track with some personal projects that have been on the backburner for too long. This was a tough decision, but ...   more

The Boston Bat

THE GIRL

[img=627x352]http:///ul/user/1/168194-216322-scenejpg-620x.jpgThe story is quite filled with different sort of emotions which we feel throughout the movie. Great work has been done by "ABBIE CORNISH". She was seperated from h...   more

Birdemic Review - A.K.A Why I hate Myself and Everyone Forever and Ever

Where were you the last time you started to question whether there was any point to life? If you're anything like me then there's a good chance you were watching Birdemic at the time, and as the minutes crawled by your thou...   more



Man of Steel - My Thoughts

Now I don't want to make this a whining, negative moan-fest about why the Man of Steel didn’t wear red pants or something. So instead of concentrating on the stuff I didn’t like in the reboot, I’ll focus on areas of the orig...   more



The Deconstruction of Superman

Just got done with Man of Steel after depriving myself of any and all information on it, and no ifs ands or buts about it, it was a good movie. Finally, FINALLY, we get to see Dragonball Z with a budget. I'm partly kidding...   more

Presenting the Past: Ups and Downs of Hollywood Prequels

Movie concepts are just like other ideas. They are not easy to come by and even harder to provide a completely unique story line. Maybe that's why we are seeing an influx of movie prequels in Hollywood. Here's a few of my favorites successes and fails.  Source: TexasElectricityProviders.com   more



Cougar Town - If You Haven't Seen it...SEE IT

In 2001, Bill Lawrence created what would become a hit television series known as Scrubs. Scrubs had the rare mix of hilarity and tear jerking moments.  This series lasted for nine seasons.  And if ABC would have made the nin...   more



The Prometheus debacle - On how to save the sequal

Prompted by my favorite brown man and the rumors of a Prometheus 2 im going to put down some ideas how you could create a better movie. What with the first movie being a trainwreck of a story and the surviving characters b...   more



Few thoughts on Luhrmann's Great Gatsby

Since these are only assorted musings without enough meat (or clean up) to warrant a full feature, I'll put them in a nice little c-blog. I figure this would be a nice way to start a conversation for those who've seen it. I...   more
