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

Underwater is a movie that takes place underwater

I swear that the name of the movie Underwater, a film which takes place under the water, is not a gag. It's just that the creators literally could not think of anything more clever than just stating the location of the movie. This is the eq...

Review: Good Boys

Good Boys has, since its initial trailer landed, been touted as Superbad with younger kids. A film that uses comedy to address an awkward transition in life. Here it's the movement from childhood to teenager instead of teenager to...

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.
