Review: Dragon Quest: Your Story

Picture this; it's a Sunday afternoon. You're in between video games, you have nothing better to do, so you decide to dust off your Netflix account to see what's new. I hardly use Netflix anymore, really only cracking it open for She-Ra, Ca...

Review: Ride Your Wave

I don't know what it is with anime features films and water this year, but the fact that Ride Your Wave is the second anime film from an acclaimed director centered on the importance of water in as many months can't be a coincidence. Water ...

Take a listen to Billie Ellish's No Time To Die theme

The announcement of a new James Bond film means one of two things. One, Matt is going to geek out for the foreseeable future about anything and everything Bond related. Second, it means we're going to get a new Bond theme song, which I loo...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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: 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...
