Mad Max Is Better photo
#6: Literally everything else
I've seen Mad Max: Fury Road twice in the past week. Crucially, I paid New York City movie ticket prices to see Mad Max twice in the past week. Next week, I will all-but-definitely pay to see it a third time. I don'... read feature

10 Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies I'd Love to See That Will Probably Never Happen


Disclaimer: Forbush Man does not make this list
May 04
If you told me that, after Iron Man came out, Rocket Racoon would steal the hearts of people all around the world in a Guardians of the Galaxy film, I would call you a gosh darn liar. If you told me that we would see Howard t... read
Top 10 Movie Robots photo
Domo arigato, Mister Roboto.
[This feature originally ran with the release of Pacific Rim two years ago, but with the new robot movie Chappie now hitting theaters, I figured it'd be a fun revisit!]  In honor of Pacific Rim releasing July 12, I,... read feature

Top 10 New Toons photo
These ain't your grandad's cartoons
Did you hear the recent news? They’re going to make an Adventure Time movie, and honestly, that’s pretty darn rad. I love a good cartoon to movie adaption—and not just a live action adaption or remake, we ho... read feature

Kickstarter, Our Savior photo
Well... maybe.
We all know that Kickstarter is pretty cool. (Heck, one of our writers used it to fund his last short film.) And film projects tend to be pretty safe bets; while video game Kickstarters routinely fail in a spectacular fashion... read feature

4 lame Spider-villains photo
Never say never, but we'll probably never see Big Wheel on the Big Screen
Sony and Marvel deciding to share Spider-Man is beyond awesome. It's something I've always dreamed of, ever since Marvel Studios started making movies. Now, one can presume that most if not all of Spidey's supporting cast and... read feature

5 Bad Reasons photo
Wherever there's a hang up, you'll find the Spider-Man
Yesterday I wrote up a list of five reasons why Spider-Man joining the MCU was a good idea, and while I stand by my points, I couldn't shake the feeling in the back of my head. Cold and cynical as I am, it felt weird just acc... read feature

5 Good Reasons photo
To him, life is a great big bang up
I don't know about you all, but I'm still shocked at the news that Sony and Marvel are finally getting along and Spider-Man will officially join the Marvel movies. The finer details of the deal are still shrouded in mystery w... read feature

2015 Excitement photo
Get hype
Did you know that the beginning of February is the perfect time to look ahead at the new year? Why is that, you ask. Because now we've gotten rid of all the crap and Oscar leftovers that January is full of and we can actually... read feature

I see too many movies. Here the best so you don't have to.
As a person who gets to attend press screenings for almost every major and minor release out there I get to see way too many movies. You're thinking that sounds awesome, but it can be a horrible burden. Do you know how many b... read feature

Nick's Top 10 Music photo
Music to my eyes
Music plays an integral role in film. Easily ignored, easily forgotten, a film's soundtrack is the little celebrated framework of cinema. But when sound and sight marry into a great scene, you get some of the best moments. Li... read feature

Nick's Top 5 Sequels photo
Sequelitis schmequelitis
We've seen more sequels released the last few years than we have in a long time. While 2015 seems to continue that trend, last year showed that we shouldn't automatically write off a film just because it's a sequel. I've seen... read feature

Nick's Top 5 Animated photo
No girls allowed I guess
2014 was a pretty good year for animated films. But unlike the year before, which featured a huge Disney film with headlining women and lots of family friendly features, 2014 was a complete boy's club. While there were a few ... read feature

Best Trailers of 2014 photo
The trailers of 2014 got me lookin' so crazy right now
Around this time last year, I wrote a list of the Best and Worst Trailers of 2013. While there won't be a "worst" list this year, that just means the trailers of 2014 have been all around much better than before. As studios f... read feature

Merry Flixmas!
In December of 2013, I wrote about a Christmas movie a day for twenty five days. It was both the best and worst project I had ever attempted. I tested the limit of how many words I could actually come up with for each one. I ... read feature

FlixList: Cartoons! photo
Grab that bowl of cereal
Cartoons are great. Growing up, I loved to get up early weekend mornings (Fox Kids on Saturday, WB Kids on Sunday) and rush home from school during the week to catch all the best cartoons. Before the advent of DVR, piracy, an... read feature

On Crime Day, the holiest of holidays

Star Wars Wish List photo
It's time for a different kind of EU

LOUD NOISES! photo
Get ready for a ton of typing in caps

Best Korean Netflix Films photo
Korean movies are still pretty freaking great
Nearly every time I tell people that I'm a fan of Korean films, I point them to the Korean subgenre on Netflix. It's easy, and even though many people won't ever check them out, I'm happy that the option is there. I understan... read feature

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the theater.
2013 had its fair share of hot ladies in the movies, but let us not, let us never, forget to celebrate the hot dudes the movies of 2013 blessed us with as well. From motorcycle misfits to vigilante justice cowboys to sentimen... read feature

Every women is beautiful. It's just my job to assign numerical values to that beauty.

10 Best Musical Moments photo

I'm a sucker for a good soundtrack. Your film could be the worst thing since sliced bread and I'd still love it if the songs were nice. But the best movies take their song choices (or original works) and use them in spectacul... read feature

2013 Best Netflix photo
They may not be the best of 2013, but you can watch them now

#6: The Finale of You're Next
Maybe I’m just young, but a good movie fight is the quickest way to my heart. A well-choreographed or inventive action scene appeals to a certain part of my brain in ways I don’t quite understand yet. For an action junkie, 2013 was disappointing and delightful in equal measure. There were few standouts, but the ones that stood out? Man, did they stand out. read feature
