New Releases, week of 12/21/13: The Lone D Edition

This week's home video releases involve a bunch of movies we regrettably did not get to review here on Flixist. First off there's a movie only Liz saw apparently since it tanked so bad, The Lone Ranger. Secondly, there're two movies I'm mos...

Review: Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass 2 is flying really below the radar right now, especially for a film that's most likely going to succeed on word of mouth instead of brand name. After all the original Kick-Ass was awesome, but wasn't a resounding success ...

Official synopsis for Kick-Ass 2 shared with the world
