I don't know if we really need another Charlie's Angels reboot but we're getting one. It looks... generic? I mean, there's nothing really standing out about this. You've got the angels posing and stuff but it doesn't have the tongue-in...

Review: Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep is a strange thing. Part a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's seminal film The Shining and part an adaptation of Stephen King's seminal book The Shining it sits in an awkward spot. See, the film and the book have drasti...

How well do you know movie history?

I like to think I know a lot about movie history having studied it and been writing about it for nearly 15 years. Yet when I play Storyline I realize just how little I know about the numbers behind film.  Storyline is a web-based game ...

Midway gets its first action-oriented trailer

There was a time in the early 2000s that the war movie turned into an action movie. Films like Valkyrie and Pearl Harbor delivered epic heroism. It wasn't good or bad, it was just what was working at the time. That time passed, th...

See The Goldfinch early and free

I'm not sure how good The Goldfinch will be but I can say that the movie is going to look fantastic. It's got Roger Deakins as a cinematographer and whatever that man shoots comes out real pretty. He's probably the best cinematographer work...

Michael Bay will direct Black 5 as Sony is set to produce

I am a not-so-proud Michael Bay fan. Or, to be more precise, I am a fan of Michael Bay when he isn't direction Transformers movies he clearly doesn't care about. The man use to be able to direct action, he's actually got a pretty good ...

 
 


About Matthew Razakone of us since 2:16 AM on 02.17.2011

Matthew Razak is the Editor-in-Chief here at Flixist, meaning he gets to take credit for all this awesome even though its really the rest of the amazing staff that gets it done. He started as a community member back in the early days of Destructoid and bugged his way into writing for the site while being the Managing Editor over at That VideoGame Blog. He was also writing as a film critic for a local newspaper in the DC area and for Examiner.com. Finally after seven years of thinking silently to himself why the Modern Method network doesn't have a movie site he told Niero that we should start one. At the same time Fronz had been telling him to start a movie site too. The two of them teamed up with Niero's go ahead and now we have Flixist.

Matthew is totally open to any movie of any genre, but his wheelhouse is horror, action and James Bond. Doesn't sound too respectable but he's also got a fancy film degree from Vassar College and he's a member of the Washington Area Film Critics Society so that makes him semi-official in some capacity. He just really like movies and hopes that's enough to let you trust his opinion on them slightly.

He get asked these questions a lot when he tells people he writes for a movie blog, so:

Favorite movie: Evil Dead 2

Favorite franchise: Bond

OK, Favorite Bond movie: From Russia With Love

Movie You Should See Right Now: Midnight in Paris

Movies You Should See You Haven't: 16 Blocks, Lucky Number Slevin, Superman Returns (but watch it as an homage to the first two films and not as a movie, it's genius that way), Singing in the Rain (I know you haven't seen it), Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

If you want to know the movies you have to see to get Flixist head here.
