Two Night Stand Review photo

Review: Two Night Stand

Is there nothing in this world more tiresome than movies about supposedly wise beyond their years, quirky, white, directionless youth philosophizing about the nature of sex/life/interpersonal relationships? I sure as hell can’t thin...

The Alamo Drafthouse is coming to Los Angeles next year!

Between my home city of Buffalo, NY and my adopted city of Los Angeles, I have been enviously side-eying those lucky, Alamo Drafthouse-having cities for what feels like years. A theater that cracks down hard on talking/texting, serves you d...

Deliver Us Review photo

Review: Deliver Us From Evil

In all my years seeing movies, I don’t think I’ve seen a collective shrug quite like the one my theater experienced upon leaving Deliver Us From Evil. A passive gesture of that magnitude could only have been triggered by a ...

Review: The Fault in Our Stars

I did not enjoy John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. The narration was precocious and cloying, the dialogue simply ridiculous, and any attempts at pathos were laughable; a novel collectively written by the people behind those wre...

Poultrygeist: The Movie Buffalo, NY Deserves

I was born and raised just outside of Buffalo, New York. It took me 19 years before I managed to escape this rotting hellhole. Even then I have to go back every so often. Living in this area is nothing short of miserable, and it seems the...

Don't watch this Fault in Our Stars trailer

Flixist's trailer post guidelines require the trailer at the top, with no header. I spent more time than I should have (like 3 minutes) on that crappy Photoshop job, and I want you to see it. Trailer is below. (holy shit that boy's eyes loo...

Somebody's making a Friday the 13th TV series

Look, it does not matter who's producing the pilot (nobody you've heard of) or which network will pick this up. I could regale you with tales of what this show will be about or when it'll take place. But you don't really care. And you shoul...

'Allegiant' will be two movies; coming 2016 and 2017

Here's an Extended Look at the new Godzilla

About Mike Cosimanoone of us since 11:28 AM on 11.11.2013

Mike Cosimano lives in East Aurora, New York, but goes to school all the way on the other side of the country. What a great idea. Hot Fuzz is his favorite movie ever made, but he claims The Iron Giant is the objectively best film of all time. He's also a couple Latin phrases away from memorizing President Bartlet's speech from Two Cathedrals. When he's not Flixist-ing, you can find him riding the video game rails at videogamechoochoo.com
