Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. As the Decade Decathlon slowly makes its way ...

Review: Weathering With You

Makoto Shinkai is a director that you may have heard from his last feature film, Your Name. Your Name released back in 2016 and took the world by storm for its stunning animation, wonderful premise, and an ending that hits you like a sack o...

Stop talking about Oscar snubs

Earlier today, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced the nominees for the 92nd Academy Awards. With a huge swath of movies nominated for a variety of awards, it's bound to be a time of celebration and praise for the film...

Review: Like A Boss

Ah, January, the dumping ground of movies. January, the month where movies that would have failed at any other time of the year have a shot at doing moderately well because there's virtually no competition. For the past few years we've gott...

Jesse's Top 5 Movies of 2019

Another year has come and gone for the film industries and now that we're in the middle of the deadest month of the year in terms of new releases, might as well look back at all of the movies that came out last year. I'll hold off my though...

Here are the 2020 Golden Globe winners

It's award season time, so you know what that means! It's time to watch Ricky Gervais host the Golden Globes! The Golden Globes are usually a fairly important indicator for which movies will start to emerge as front runners during this year...

Studio Ghibli announces a new feature film

It seems like an odd question to ask, but do you remember Studio Ghibli? For a majority of anime and animation fans, that might seem like a ridiculous question. How could anyone possibly forget the studio that made such cinematic classics l...

Flixist's worst reviewed movies of 2019

Another year, another heaping serving of trash to unload from our collective thoughts. While 2019 didn't have a ton of offensively bad movies, what 2019 did produce were a large amount of movies that clearly should have been killed before g...

Flixist's best reviewed movies of 2019

Hello boys and girls! 2019 is slowly drawing to a close and as sad as it may be to see it go for some, it's probably my favorite time of the year. Why? Because I get to look back at the past year of films that we reviewed and determine whic...

Review: Cats

Let's just cut to the chase so I don't have to waste everyone's time on this. Cats is an atrocious movie that we always knew was going to be bad, but I didn't think it would be this bad. I saw this for free and I still felt ripped off. We h...

The Decade Decathlon: 2017

Hey, what were our personal favorite movies of the decade?

As we inch closer and closer to the end of the year, not only will we be ringing out the year, but we'll be closer out an entire decade. It's been an insane ten years in the film world, and with so many good movies to discuss, it's going to...

Wonder Woman vs Black Widow: Which trailer reigns supreme?

The last week of film was, admittingly, a pretty low-key one. There weren't a slew of major releases into theaters with most talk, if any, was set on discussing movies that could wind up winning major awards. While there wasn't much discuss...

See Richard Jewell early and free

We're starting to get into the tick of awards season and with only a few major releases left to go, you don't want to miss out on what may be the big awards season darling of the year. It's still too early to say what's a frontrunner this y...

Don't worry, Baby Yoda will have a backstory

In case you've been living under a rock for the past month, the internet has been all abuzz about Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. Rescued at the end of the first episode, the little bugger has been lighting up social media and taken the wor...

The strangest and most insane Scooby-Doo moments

So there I was, sitting in a theater of families and wide-eyed Disney fangirls waiting for Frozen II to begin. While sitting through the plethora of trailers, one trailer stood out to the audience for the oddest reason. The trailer for...

Deep Analysis: Frozen

I shouldn't have to explain what Frozen is.  The concept of cultural osmosis fascinates me. Essentially, the idea is that even if you haven't experienced an aspect of culture, in this case pop culture, you're still aware of its existen...

Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

As we get older, it's beginning to dawn on me that there's an entire generation that has grown up without knowing who Fred Rogers is or what Mister Roger's Neighborhood was. It stands to reason that as we as a society produce more and ...

Soooooooo Julia Roberts was supposed to play Harriet Tubman

It's not every day you hear the dumbest thing in existence. No, that isn't a hyperbole. This is news that explains itself. It's so dumb, so laughable, so ludicrous that all I can do is present the facts to you as you're bewildered at how mo...

Review: Lady and the Tramp

It's finally happened. Disney+ has launched and the streaming wars have begun in earnest. Oh sure, companies have been competing against each other for the better part of a year about which of their streaming services would be better, but i...

Review: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Season 4)

Here's the thing; I could spend a few paragraphs waxing poetic about how She-Ra has continued to get better and better the longer it runs or talk about how the series has exploded in popularity in the short year it's been on the air, but th...

Review: Midway

War movies have always been in a weird spot for me. Usually the material is based on a significant event or an interesting individual, but those movies typically play in one of two ways. They either embellish facts in order to create a more...

Review: Primal

Nicolas Cage is the gift that keeps on giving. After throwing himself into debt with some larger than life purchases, including buying a freaking castle, the man has been accepting any role tossed at him left and right in order to make all ...

Dracula looks like Steven Moffat found his groove again

I miss Sherlock. Sherlock was one of those rare shows that I discovered by chance one night in college and just had to watch the entire series in as little time as possible. I binged as much as I could in the lead-up to Series 4 and have b...

Colin Farrell and Andy Serkis in talks to join The Batman

As a friendly reminder, it's been over seven years since we last had a Batman solo movie. Yes, the character has appeared in some DCEU movies, most of which audiences would like to forget existed, but this has been the longest gap between l...

The Witch's intro is the textbook example of terrifying

Happy Halloween everyone! Look outside, can't you see it? Children stopping door to door grabbing candy. The night coming just a wee bit earlier than normal. And horror movies are screening all across the world. While some love to celebrate...

The Silent Hill movie is criminally underrated

20 years after its release, Silent Hill is one of the most most beloved horror franchises in all of video games. From an excellent initial trilogy of games to sequels that vary wildly in terms of quality, Silent Hill is the definition of a ...

Maleficent dethrones Joker at the top of the box office

After two weeks atop the domestic box office, it looks like Joker has finally been beaten. It was only a matter of time before the divisive feature was usurped as the number #1 movie in America, but understandably, it lost to a new Dis...

Review: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

I have very mixed emotions towards 2014's Maleficent. On one hand, it was a modern reimagining of Sleeping Beauty that seemed to focus on the best aspects of that original movie by casting a fantastic actress in the title role while simulta...

It’s a quiet night in the Park household. The Parks have gone away for their son’s birthday, leaving only their housekeeper, Chung-sook (Jang Hye-jin), to tend to the house and their pets while they are away. On the surface, it&...
