Review: The Angry Birds Movie

With videogame adaptations becoming more common, it was only a matter of time before we would end up in this situation. A videogame popular for its gameplay and mechanics rather than its story would get the big screen treatme...   0

Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

In my long tenure here at Flixist I've carved out a niche for myself. If you see a review for a Seth Rogen film or a sequel to a comedy, chances are it's my words you're reading. So little did I know I'd stick around here lon...   0

First trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno teases more clues
