Netflix Now: Sorry I Was In A Coma Edition

Earlier this week, a man in the UK was outed for faking several disabilities and coma episodes for two years in order to avoid going to court. I'd like to take this time to say that guy is me and I apologize for my actions. I hope that at l...

Sean's Hottest Babes of 2013

I love women. We all know this about me. I've been, for better or for worse, the resident 'Babe Expert' since the time before Flixist took its first steps onto dry land. I love women of all shapes, sizes, colors, creeds, heights, and athlet...

Isabelle's Top 5 Movie Romances of 2013

Romantic comedies are all well and good, but who doesn't love a movie that tears their heart out through their chest? Heartache is an integral part of romance, and 2013 provided movie-goers with a plethora of strange, sad, and bea...

Box Office Numbers: She's Just a Girl But She's On Fire

Last week I predicted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would do well because duh, but I had no idea it would practically blow up all theaters everywhere. Raking in over 160 million dollars it practically destroyed all competition. Even Thor:...

Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I'm a pretty big fan of The Hunger Games series of books. I tore through them in a day and while Catching Fire isn't my favorite in the series, it does have the most intriguing setups in the trilogy. The production for Catching Fire has not...

Woody Harrelson is just a treasure

Did you know that Liam Hemsorth (Gale in The Hunger Games) and Chris Hemsworth (Thor in Thor: The Dark World) were brothers? Then you already know more information than a terribly dazed and confused Woody Harrelson. In an interview with CB...

New Hunger Games: Catching Fire TV spot and clip released

If you didn't quite enjoy the first Hunger Games flick (like me, and unlike everyone else at Flixist, apparently), and was hoping the fast-approaching sequel would be more palatable, boy, do these clips not help. Apple has 40 un-...

See Catching Fire early and free

Lionsgate considering a Hunger Games theme park

The Hunger Games series is an odd duck. It's incredibly popular while managing to be one of the darker teen stories on the market. At base level it's a series in which children murder each other for the enjoyment of rich onlookers as they s...

New Catching Fire images show off, well, everyone

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been hard on the marketing blitz all year so this deluge of new images that just landed isn't really breaking any new ground, but it is the first time we can easily look at every single character so ...

International trailer for Catching Fire doesn't spoil

You have to give it to the marketing department behind the Hunger Game's movies. They know how to put together some trailers that don't spoil the movie. I'm sure it helps that the first two books are front loaded with quality dramatic stuf...

Trailer Round-up: Komic Khan

Second Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer is hungry

When the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered during the MTV Movie Awards, I was pleased with what I had seen. A notable bump in narrative quality, camerawork, and just all around coolness. Does the second trailer do ...

Trailer: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I took a bullet for all of you. Tonight (or last night depending on when you see this) I watched through the MTV Movie Awards (and its multiple Ted nominations for some reason) just so I could grab this teaser for all of you. Should I have...

UPDATE: Even more Catching Fire character portraits

UPDATE 2: We now have Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (one of the Thor brothers) and Finnick (Sam Claflin) portraits in the gallery! And they all look appropriately attractive. This is probably it. If not, expect another update as this gets c...

Jena Malone cast as Johanna Mason in Catching Fire

Ok, here's a promise from me. Last year, a lot of news outlets were pretty slavishly reporting on EVERY SINGLE PIECE of Hunger Games casting news, and the vast majority of it was pretty pointless. It doesn't matter who's playing the ma...
