Man, but I hate saying goodbye

If you listen to The Flixist Show, this is old news, but if you're part of the great unwashed masses that HAVEN'T been saved by our racism and our insanity, then I'm afraid I've got sad news. As of today, I am officially leaving Flixist f...

Review: Wreck-It Ralph

Almost immediately, there's a weird dissonance in Wreck-it Ralph, Disney's love-letter to the 80s/90s age of arcades. From frame one, where the film begins at the arcade that is home to all the characters and games we're about to meet, hitt...

The Flixist Show 43: The end of a smutty, smutty era

END?! That's right! This episode of The Flixist Show is the final episode for a little bit of time. We're experiencing a bit of a reboot, after we take a brief hiatus, and we decide to close this chapter of The Flixist Show with a jam-packe...

Tonight, on a very special episode of The Flixist Show...

Someone will probably get molested. Not Spider-Man, though. He's already been...handled. Tonight is actually a very special show, and we're going to have a good chunk of the staff dropping by at random points throughout. Why is it so s...

Trailer: Hitchcock

Here we have the very first trailer for the Alfred Hitchcock biopic Hitchcock starring Anthony Hopkins as the big fella himself, with Helen Mirren as Hitchcock's wife and Scarlett Johannson as Janet Leigh. The film mostly follows Hitc...

Trailer: A Good Day to Die Hard

Finally, a trailer for the Die Hard sequel no one really asked for from the director of the Max Payne movie no one wanted! Kidding aside, there's no story to find in the first trailer, just a lot of punches and shooting and KABOO...

Flixist Movie Club: Loopercast

It's the return of the Flixist Movie Club, this time dissecting Rian Johnson's Looper! Surprisingly, this is a very coherent, not-disturbing show, so if you're looking for someone to get raped, it's sadly not going to happen. Sadface. Join ...

Ask us your questions for Loopercast!

Tonight the Flixist Movie Club returns to talk about Rian Johnson's Looper, which basically means we're going to go one week without an insane story from Matty Shoestring. Ask us your non-spoiler-y questions in the comments below! If you ha...

The Flixist Show 42: A cottage on Ryan Gosling's balls

Man, you guys love asking us about balls. This week, we talk some about our awesome Sinister screening, come really close to intellectual discussion, and then Jenika describes her dream home on Ryan Gosling's ballsack.  Find ...

Trailer: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Here's the newest trailer for this December's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, because the story of The Hobbit is so huge and epic and expansive that it needs three whole movies just to do it justice. This would be a good time to me...

The Flixist Show 41: U can't hate a colour

We've got a particularly short show tonight, but that doesn't mean we don't talk about butts a whole hell of a lot. Between anus discussion, we gab about the new Justice League movie and superhero continuity, a little on The Master, and, of...

Trailer: Citadel

I can't remember ever seeing an Irish horror film before, and I have to say, I'm really digging what I've seen of Citadel so far. This trailer goes a little bit further into the film's plot than the last one, though it's really much o...

James Gunn confirmed for Guardians of the Galaxy

Super director James Gunn confirmed today that he would be rewriting and directing Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel and Disney, having only just been "in talks." Moreso than anything, this quote from Gunn confirms for me that he...

Despite all logic, Boondock Saints 3 may be happening

The Boondock Saints is a deeply stupid yet occasionally entertaining Tarantino rip-off("There was a FIREFIIIIIIIIGHT!"). Its sequel is pretty much the most godawful thing imaginable. According to star Norman Reedus, Troy Duffy and the ...

LA Friends: See Sinister with us and Geekscape!

[Update: We got upgraded to a larger house! There are less than forty tickets left, and the screening is in one week!] Hey, fellow Los Angeles denizens! Remember that time we went to see The FP together with Jonathan London from Geeksc...

Trailer: Lincoln

You hear that sound? Yep, I'm pretty sure that was Daniel Day-Lewis's Oscar win for his performance as Abraham Lincoln reaching back through time to say "YEAH BOYEEE." Indeed, it's the first trailer ever for Steven Spielberg's long in-deve...

This is the first color film footage ever recovered

This is absolutely astonishing. The National Media Museum in Bradford, England has discovered the world's very first color film, dating back to 1902. The film is made from a process developed by Edward Raymond Turner in 1899. It's likely t...

Trailer: Texas Chainsaw 3D

Wow, I totally didn't realize there was another Texas Chainsaw Massacre coming out, this time in 3D. THAT'S certainly not going to be used for cheap effect with the chainsaw plunging towards the screen at all! Really, though, there's ...

There's no Strange Viggo, but we may see the Ant-Man test

While Dr. Strange may still show up in Thor: The Dark World, we won't see him battling anyone in the buff in a bathhouse. Marvel exec Victoria Alonso completely shut down the rumor that Viggo Mortensen was attached to cameo as Dr. Strange i...

Should you see Finding Nemo in 3D?

Finding Nemo is the latest in a string of 3D re-releases from Disney and the third 3D re-release specifically from Pixar (the first two being Toy Story and its sequel). With Finding Nemo, Disney chose to not only convert the film ...

The Flixist Show 40: Check out that Hamm!

We talk a lot about dicks this episode. Jon Hamm's dick, little person dick, all kinds of dicks. I think this is one of our most unfocused shows yet. We also try to talk about TIFF and Christina Hendicks in fetishwear, but we're derailed on...

Major league dudemeat on display for Fast and Furious 6

Trailer: A Liar's Autobiography

I just happened to watch Monty Python's The Meaning of Life over the weekend, and it reinforced two things. Meaning of Life is way better than Holy Grail. Graham Chapman was clearly the best out of all the members of Monty Pytho...

Win the Dark Knight Rises soundtrack on vinyl!

The Flixist Show 38: SNICKcast

On this episode of The Flixist Show, back after a week's vacation, we pretty much entirely talk about the SNICK lineup on Nickelodeon from our childhoods. Is there actual movie talk? A bit. I briefly mention seeing Paranorman, but that's re...

Hey, it's a clip from The Perks of Being a Wallflower!

You know, I never found Emma Watson terribly attractive, probably because I could never get the image of her as the frizzy-haired little girl in the first Harry Potter movie. Even when she grew up through the series, I didn't really s...

About Alex Katzone of us since 3:30 AM on 02.17.2011

Alex Katz, not to be confused with the famous painter, basically did nothing in college but watch movies, write about them, and try in vain to learn computer animation. One time, he watched the long tracking shot at the end of Children of Men six times in a row. It was basically the best day of his life. He has also written three screenplays that, God willing, no one will ever be forced to read again.
