Liam Hemsworth is Timeless

Just in case you guys got confused, that's LIAM Hemsworth, not Chris Hemsworth of Thor fame (and hot bod fame). They're brothers, though, so it's easy to get confused. At any rate, Hemsworth #2 is starring in Timeless, another in an expandi...

Review: Underworld Awakening

It’s tough living in a post-Matrix climate. If you’re in the entertainment business, anyway. There is simply no other contemporary film that has been as influential to the action genre as The Matrix; the highly stylized action...

Arnold in new Avatar-styled Terminator movie?

Alright, so take this bit of news with a HUGE grain of salt, but apparently the enthusiasm of Terminator fans can't be stifled. After seeing what became of Terminator Salvation, fans were enraged and wanted a film that was faithful to the e...

Quentin Tarantino likes crappy movies

Art is a truly amazing thing. I'm not just saying that because I'm an artist either. I think it's amazing because all art starts with inspiration. The things artists create are made possible by the books they read and the movies they watch....

Angry Video Game Nerd Q&A Panel

I'm probably the biggest Angry Video Game Nerd fan on Flixist, so believe me when I say that it's been a long wait for the Angry Video Game Nerd movie. After more than a hundred Nerd videos and prophesying an impending AVGN movie, there's ...

Tim Burton weighs in on Beetlejuice sequel

You may have heard that there's a Beetlejuice sequel in the works. We'll just call this story a sequel to that other story about a Beetlejuice sequel (I just really love sequels). A bit of a refresher, KatzSmith Productions (comprised of Se...

Avatar 2 delayed another two years, Originality rejoices

James Cameron's much anticipated Avatar 2 was slated to arrive in 2014. Now that vague date is but a memory, and taking its place another vague release date of 2016. The source comes directly from Jon Landau, producer of the first Avatar fi...

Thor 2 hammer passed unto mighty new director

Thor 2 has been talked about for a while now and has since been met with a fair bit of controversy. Having stepped down from the directing throne of Thor 2, Kenneth Branagh passed down Thor's mighty hammer unto Patty Jenkins, but woe unto h...

Kevin Smith to Hit Somebody with one movie, not two

Kevin Smith is screenwriting a hockey film called Hit Somebody. Apparently he had once planned to film the movie in two parts, presumably because the story is just that epic. Now Smith has been tweetering, twitterpated, on his Twitter (or w...

First Look: Jemaine Clement in Men in Black 3

Man, I never get tired of making fun of this movie. It's like the gift that just keeps on giving. Anyway, here's an interesting still of Jemaine Clement who actually signed on to be in this movie. He's some kind of Easy Rider fan, and thoug...

Trailer: The Viral Factor

Dante Lam seems to be a master of Hong Kong action films. He's done films such as The Beast Stalker and Stool Pigeon and proved that he's very capable of handling the precision of the action genre. The Viral Factor is his latest effort and...

New Safe House poster is anything but safe

Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star in Universal Pictures' Safe House, a movie about neither a house, nor a safe, so I'd say it's a bit of a misnomer. That being said, I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt as long as the stor...

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Black Sands becomes Black Sunday

Arnold is looking to revive his acting career in any way he can, it seems, as he's taking on the most random roles ever. I mean, if Arnold is desperate for roles, you know the economy's in trouble. Last we heard he was starring in the film ...

Bill Murray shreds Ghostbusters 3 script

Oh, Bill Murray... What are we going to do with you? Yes, Bill Murray has finally read the Ghostbusters 3 script... and hated it. The former ghostbuster hated the script so much, in fact, that he actually sent it back to Dan Aykroyd and Har...

Review: Young Adult

In reviewing a movie like Young Adult, you have to understand something first to really put things in perspective. Not everyone’s going to like this film. This isn’t the “feel good” movie of the year. There are many ...

Prometheus teaser poster has a face monolith

So, the Alien prequel (or not, I dunno still), Prometheus, being directed by Ridley Scott, is shaping up to be a film about things. There's a face monolith, so there's that, I guess. I think it's one of those movies that you really just nee...

Universal picks up Luc Besson's next sci-fi thriller

So, it's awesome that Luc Besson is making a return to sci-fi. After years of waiting for something in the vein of The Fifth Element or The Professional, Besson is coming out with not one, but two sci-fi films. His latest, Lockout, we repor...

Trailer: The Three Stooges

The Farrelly brothers have been in somewhat of a comedic slump these past few years. Their most recent effort, Hall Pass, wasn't horrible, but it failed to live up to that classic Farrelly brothers charm and humor. The Three Stooges has be...

Kathleen Kennedy puts her thing down on Jurassic Park 4

Kathleen Kennedy may not be synonymous with Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark or The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but she should be; she produced all of them and more. Recently, she's produced The Adventures of Tin Tin and War Hors...

Teaser poster for Cabin in the Woods teases brilliantly

Perhaps one of the most done-to-death subgenres of Horror, the "cabin in the woods" archetypal film usually employs a "killer on the loose" or "a crazy ghost bent on wreaking havoc on the living." At first, Cabin in the Woods seemed no diff...

Charlize Theron curses in Young Adult red band TV spot

Jason Reitman's new film, Young Adult, stars Charlize Theron in one of her most outrageous roles yet. I've enjoyed all of Jason Reitman's films thus far (Juno, Thank You For Smoking, Up In The Air), so I'm sure this film will be no differe...

Men in Black 3 poster teases with Men in Black 3?

So, there's this little indie flick called Men in Black 3 coming out next year. You may have heard of it. It's supposed to be a sequel to Men in Black II, but to be honest, I only recall seeing the first Men in Black. I wonder... Do they ma...

Before Sunrise to the Future Part III being planned

Before Sunrise and its 9-years-later sequel, Before Sunset, were possibly two of the most simplistic and yet intellectual films ever made. The direction by Richard Linklater is so free-form and casual, as if you're witnessing less of a plot...

Trailer: Woody Allen: A Documentary

First Look: Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand

Back to the Future Part II to get heckled and mocked

Dumb and Dumber sequel planned by Farrelly brothers

Contrary to popular belief, Dumb and Dumberer, the prequel to Dumb and Dumber, wasn't a horrible movie. It wasn't nearly as good as its forefather, but it made me laugh. However, that movie was made without the involvement of the Farrelly b...

About Jamie R Stoneone of us since 9:13 AM on 06.28.2011

My personal career goal is to finish up my graphic novel that I've been toiling away on for a few years now with my best friend and partner, Brenda Gonzalez. Beyond that, I would love to get involved in film-making as well as video game design, but that’s a long-term goal. I must first build myself up from the sheer sweat from my brow.

I’m a firm believer that our personalities determine what we end up doing. As such, I am a Freelance Artist. I have been called a talented individual before, but I see it as more my drive to be talented. I am motivated to making the best possible thing to whatever is in my mind's eye. If I can match that even slightly, I will feel that I have succeeded.
