New Releases, week of 4/20/13: Djangowned Edition

Howdy, folks, and welcome to this week's new releases, a sort of pre-Tribeca reprieve for me. This week boasts two genre deconstructions. The biggie is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx (who, as Nick points out, was ...

Flixist Awards 2012: The Pterodactyl

Of our year-end awards, I think that the Pterodactyl is probably my favorite. Looking back on a year's most badass characters is a good way to remind yourself of just good (or bad) a year was. Last year, Ryan Gosling's Driver took it handil...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Original Soundtrack

Soundtracks are the nervous system of a film. You don't see them, but if it stopped working for a few seconds, the film dies. A soundtrack or orchestration is just as important as the actors and actresses on screen. And some of the best sou...

Deep Analysis: Django photo

Deep Analysis: Django Unchained

Django Unchained is a peculiar film. It tip toes along a fine line between vigorous exploitation and gentle subtly. At times, it feels like it is fighting itself to decide what kind of film it wants to be. Does it want to be a homage to the...
