Netflix makes first purchase at SXSW

As Netflix has made production/distribution deals with names like Adam Sandler, the Duplass Brothers and, just two weeks ago, Cary Fukunaga, it comes as no surprise to see them toss their wallet around at SXSW. As they've acquired the world...

First poster for Paper Towns

The first poster for Paper Towns has been released, courtesy of 20th Century Fox. While the poster alone is horrendously dull, I think the movie deserves your attention.  Like last years The Faults in Our Stars, Paper Towns is an adapt...

Review: Chappie

I really do adore Neill Blomkamp, and his first film, District 9, in particular. Although it doesn’t have as many fans as it did back in 2009, I still hold it up as one of the most spectacular debuts in recent years. His sophomore pro...

First trailer for Mr. Holmes

Benedict Cumberbatch can take his tea and biscuit to go, because there's a new Sherlock Holmes in town. Ian McKellen is as charming as ever in the first trailer for Mr. Holmes.  I'm usually not one for these types of movies, but this ...

Kristen Stewart joins Kelly Reichardt's new project

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson should no longer be referred to as "Twilight stars", as they've both stolen the show in multiple movies since then (see Clouds of Sils Maria and The Rover). Now Stewart has been cast in Kelly Reichardt's...

Neill Blomkamp will ignore Alien 3 and Resurrection

When it was announced that Neill Blomkamp is set to direct a new movie in the Alien franchise, a few people in the Flixist staff lost their minds (me included). I even posted a feature called "6 things we want from Neill Blomkamp's Alien pr...

Rob Schrab to direct the Lego Movie sequel

As awesome as everything was in The Lego Movie, it is possible the sequel will be even more... awesome (*bursts into singing "Everything is awesome").  I was initially not sold on the idea to make a second Lego Movie, but this may have...

You need to watch this John Wick Kill Counter

Sometimes words are superfluous, but should "John Wick Kill Counter" not sell you on this video, I'll add a few.  Keanu Reeves is back. Keanu Reeves is a badass. Keanu Reeves shoots about six dozen people in the head, and it is all th...

About Per Morten Mjolkeraaenone of us since 10:35 AM on 02.10.2015

Born and based in Norway, I'm the only person on the Flixist staff with an ordinary surname.

I've written about movies, music and video games for the past four years, and still can't decide why I like to do it. I love pop-culture and counter-culture equally, in the same way I find intellectual European New-Wave movies and American blockbusters equally fun and rewarding. I'm often told I'm paradox incarnated into a small, socially awkward norwegian dude.
