Flix for Short: Werewolf in a Girls' Sorority

About a month ago, I posted the trailer to Werewolf in a Girls' Sorority, which stars Flixist community member Alex Barbatsis, as well as many YouTube personalities including Freddie Wong and the Gregory Brothers. Well, the film is finishe...

Gary Oldman joins Robocop

Guys, guys, guys. Guess what. Gary Oldman is in the Robocop remake. I know! Man, this movie is going to be incredible, I can just feel it. But the question remains: who will he play? The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Oldman wil...

Trailer: The Great Gatsby

Ugh. I can't even begin to express my disgust for this trailer. I was already a little hesitant when Baz Luhrmann was announced to direct an adaptation of one of my favorite books ever. But then we're given...this? When was the last time a...

Flix for Short: March

I really don't know what to say about this scene from March, starring Destructoid editor Jonathan Holmes. He's a serial killer singing about how he wanted to get caught? How does he know the detective? Will there be pedophillia? These are ...

Schwarzenegger's best lines make up a pretty good rap

I just finished watching Predator for the first time in years. And while the Predators themselves are complete babies, Arnold's performance is nothing short of obnoxious macho greatness. So it seems fitting that I'd find this shortly ...

Prometheus viral continues with Quiet Eye

And the Prometheus viral campaign just keeps on rollin'. Today, we're graced by the lovely Noomi Rapace sending a message to the Yutani Corporation pitching her intergalactic mission. But it wouldn't be a viral without a bunch of audi...

John Carter gets a decent boost thanks to...drive-ins?

Well color me pink, folks haven't forgotten about the drive-in movie theatre! In an interesting turn of events, Disney is now seeing a decently little box office increase for its surprisingly decent John Carter, thanks to drive-in pair...

Trailer: The Amazing Spider-Man

As a DC kid from birth, I have no right to be as excited for The Amazing Spider-Man as I am right now. As far as I'm concerned, Peter Parker's character has been captured perfectly. I mean, there's that whole lame parents backstory. A...

Interview: Bobcat Goldthwait, God Bless America

I first saw World's Greatest Dad a month or two after I got home from film school. Having only seen the trailer, I was hoping for something dark and hilarious. Not only did I get that, but I had a new favorite filmmaker.  Bobcat G...

Flixclusive Interview: Joel Murray, God Bless America

Joel Murray is one of those great character actors that's been in a lot of things, but you just can't quite put your finger on his name. But just like his brother Bill, Joel has made a great career out of being "that guy". But with God Bles...

Flixclusive Interview: Tara Lynne Barr, God Bless America

While Geoff wasn't as enthralled with Bobcat Goldthwait's latest movie, God Bless America, I unabashedly love it. And part of the reason the movie works so well is the talent of newcomer Tara Lynn Barr. This week, I had the chance to s...

The World's End starts production in September

Well it took 'em long enough! Yesterday, Deadline debuted the news that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's third installment in the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy, The World's End, will start production this September. That's only like... four mont...

Flixclusive: Joel Murray talks Monsters University

See Merida in action at a Disney park

Pixar's Brave is gearing up for its Disney Park debut in a huge way. The Scottish princess herself, Merida, will soon be roaming the mean streets of Epcot, and wherever they end up putting her in Disneyland. While she hasn't joined th...

In Memoriam: Adam Yauch (MCA)

Christmas 2001. My brother hands me a wrapped gift that looks like a jewel case and says "You probably downloaded all of this anyway..." I open it up, and in it is Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys. Obviously, I didn't know this goin...

Trailer: Klown

I first saw the trailer for Klown a couple of months ago while at the Cinefamily in Los Angeles. The Danish comedy looked outrageously funny, and incredibly awkward; my kind of comedy. I made a quick mental note to make sure and see i...

Universal sues Asylum for Battleship nonsense

In a move that is simply shocking, Universal has sued direct-to-video studio Asylum for fear of copyright infringement on their upcoming board game to movie adaptation of Battleship. You see, when two studios release two similar projects, i...

Trailer: The Dark Knight Rises

This has been an amazing week for trailers, and it's only Monday evening. First, we get an international Prometheus trailer which knocked my socks off. Then, we're treated to the latest, and final, Dark Knight Rises trailer....

Trailer: Prometheus

This again? Look Ridley, we get it. Prometheus looks amazing, but you don't have to flaunt it in front of everyone. While you get to finish the movie, us mortals have to suffer until June 8. That's like, a month and some change away. ...

Trailer: Hick

Let it be known that Chloe Grace Moretz has one hell of a career on her hands, if handled properly. I honestly haven't seen a role she's played that hasn't been good. And it looks like Hick is going to continue that trend. The mo...

The Hobbit in 48 fps looks like crap; I told you so

Now, this is where I'd usually gloat and jump up and down saying "HAHAHAHA! I TOLD YOU SO!" But I'm beyond that (and already did that this morning). During CinemaCon, Warner Bros. showcased some "beautiful" 48 fps footage of The Hobbit, whe...

Jack White to score The Lone Ranger

Fresh off from the release of his (awesome) solo album, Jack White has been announced to write the score to Gore Verbenski's adaptation of The Lone Ranger. Alex put it in the staff email "I think Max just spouted love juice in his pants." A...

IFC buys Shining documentary Room 237

I'm no stranger to a bunch of crazy kooky weird theories on The Shining (My second favorite Kubrick movie), and I'm constantly seeking out new ones. So when I heard that at Sundance this year, there was a documentary that was just abou...

Shia LaBeouf song better than any Shia LaBeouf movie

I don't know what can be said about this wonderful tribute to screen legend Shia LaBeouf that hasn't been said in other posts around the web. What I can say is that songwriter Rob Cantor is a freaking genius. Though, this isn't the only act...

Trailer: Madea's Witness Protection

Oh look, Tyler Perry is doing another Madea movie. Great! Well, in the "People still watch this crap?" sense. Seriously, how is it that this guy can make a movie every year like some sort of sh*tty Woody Allen? Also, I thought we were done...

Film vs. Digital: Why everyone loses

If you follow me outside of Flixist, you no doubt saw an article I linked to yesterday from LA Weekly. The article detailed the decline of widespread industry use of 35mm film and forcing digital into the lives of flimmakers everywhere. At ...

Trailer: Looper

It's here. After years of teases, Rian Johnson's next film has a trailer. Looper looks like a hell of a movie, even if it's not exactly all I was expecting. Not that I'm less excited for the movie (It's a new movie from my favorite mo...

Trailer: LOL

So this is what it's come to, huh Hollywood? You torment me with your endless parades of "Oh, James Cameron this!", and "Maybe we'll make a new Robocop movie" for years. But now you bring out the big guns. Touche, old nemesis. LOL is ...

Trailer: I Know That Voice

Animation is wonderful, we can all agree on that. But one thing most folks hardly know anything about is voice acting. Voice actors really are the unsung heroes of animation. Sure, animators do a lot of the heavy lifting because they..y'kn...

Steve Carell to star in Alexander and the very long title

Look, I have no idea what Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is about, other than it's a children's book and that a kid probably has a bad day. I really only took this story to make that glorious header of our manag...

Trailer: Bel Ami

Like Alex said a couple days ago, I have no idea what Bel Ami is actually about. I'm just going to pretend that it's Robert Pattinson doing his best Don Draper impression in 1800s France and leave it at that. However, this does have Uma Th...

So uh, yeah. This is a teaser to a movie about foosball. And not like a really cool documentary about die-hard foosball players. No no. This is an animated movie about a kid with talking foosball figurines who goes up against a legendary s...

Review: Bully

Bullying is a very real threat facing kids today. Heck, we've all been there. And if you say you haven't been bullied, then you're either a liar, were home schooled, or a used car salesman. But now, it seems that kids are even more vile and...

In India, The Avengers gets an awesome Hindi opening song

Usually when American movies are released overseas, the only additions made to them are subtitles or a dub in the native language. Not so much with The Avengers. In addition to getting the movie a full week ahead of us (those jerks), the I...

About Maxwell Roahrigone of us since 3:34 AM on 02.17.2011

Max was born at the tender young age of zero in town noted for its horses and baseball bats. He enjoys giraffes, Robocop, oft forgotten movies of the 90's, vaudeville, British comedies, and bicycling. He realizes that this is slowly turning into an eHarmony listing, so just read his words, alright?
