Washington DC screening
Jul 28
// Matthew Razak
I'll be honest with you. I know very little about Samba. It's my fault for not paying attention. As such here is the plot description. Samba reunites The Intouchables’ acclaimed directing duo, Olivier Nakache and Eric ...

Washington DC screening
Jul 21

Tom Cruise strapped to the side of a plane. There are so many reasons to want to see this happen ranging from not liking Tom Cruise to the fact that he did the damn stunt himself. Now you can before anyone else because we've ...

DC, Norfolk and Baltimore screenings
Jul 17
// Matthew Razak
I'm not quite sure I'm all that excited for Pixels. Aside from the nostalgia going there really isn't much driving me to the film. It looks like it could have been done far better by far funnier people, but maybe I'm totally ...

See Vacation early and free


Washington DC screening
Jul 16
// Matthew Razak
When we heard about the Vacation sequel we were very, very, very skeptical, but the trailer actually looks pretty funny. I'm not saying it's gong to be a classic, but you could laugh... and you could laugh for free. We've got...

See The Overnight early and free


Washington DC screening
Jun 19
// Matthew Razak
The Overnight looks weird in that wonderfully hilarious way. Coming out of Sundance it got some great buzz for pushing boundaries while still being hilarious. Also, it has Taylor Schilling in a non-annoying way. That mak...

See Entourage early and free


Washington DC screening
May 28
// Matthew Razak
You're going to have to insert your own clever references to the original show for this post because, believe it or not, I did not watch it. As someone who had no HBO I never committed the time to watching Entourage exce...

See Poltergeist early and free


Washington DC and Baltimore screenings
May 15
// Matthew Razak
When it comes to remakes I'm not sold on Poltergeist at all. The original still stands on its own and updating it makes little sense. They're doing it, though, so we should probably watch it. It could be scary and now yo...

See Little Boy early and free


Washington DC screening
Apr 17
// Matthew Razak
We haven't talked much about Little Boy, mostly cause it looks pretty darn cheesy, but if the story of a child doing everything he can to end WWII so his father will come home sounds like the kind of heartwarming you nee...

See Kingsman: The Secret Service early and free


Washington DC screening
Feb 05
// Flixist Staff
Kingsman: The Secret Service is kind of an odd duck. It's not quite clear where it's coming from, but it does have Matthew Vaugn as a director and Colin Firth in an action role. I mean, I think we all kind of want to see...

Washington DC screening
Jan 02
// Matthew Razak
Inherent Vice is a good movie. It's a good movie you're probably going to want to see twice just so you can get everything out of it. It's a bit complicated. Why not make one of those times absolutely free? Then see it a...

Washington DC screening
Dec 15
// Matthew Razak
Early buzz on The Gambler has some Oscar hopes tied to it, but the film didn't get the push and so the nominations didn't really come. That doesn't mean that the film will be bad, though. In fact it looks pretty damn ste...
