The 'Netflix is a Joke' campaign is incredible marketing

Last night was the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, a ceremony where our beloved television industry pats itself on the back and tells itself how good they did. It's a night full of accolades for those who excelled in the entertainme...

War for the Planet of the Apes is getting a big Oscar push

When the first Planet of the Apes prequels (they're prequels to the Heston originals, not remakes) landed there was a lot of buzz about Andy Serkis getting a Best Actor nomination for his motion capture role as Caesar. That didn't...

Here are your 2017 Golden Globes winners

The Golden Globes were a weird sight last night. Technical flubs (which made Fallon awkwardly flail on stage until he mercifully shuffled away), Hidden Figures and Fences wrongly labeled as "Hidden Fences" (which reveals a whole host of oth...

The Golden Globes have their winners

The Hollywood Foreign Press is a strange group that really shouldn't have the second biggest award show around, but through marketing and a willingness to get famous people drunk they do. And so we once again bring you the winners for the G...

The Golden Globe Awards have their nominees

All year I've been wondering if the stuck-up world of award givers would actually recognize Mad Max: Fury Road as one of the best movies of the year or ignore it because "action." As the early critics awards have shown it is not being ...

Washington Area Film Critics name Spotlight best picture

Here are your 2015 Razzie winners and losers

With the 2015 Academy Awards come and gone, it's time to focus on the negative stuff...or at least the stuff that's popular to hate rather than actual bad movies. We've got expected "winners" like Michael Bay and lots of hate for Saving Chr...

Matt's Top 15 Movies of 2014

As a person who gets to attend press screenings for almost every major and minor release out there I get to see way too many movies. You're thinking that sounds awesome, but it can be a horrible burden. Do you know how many bad movies come ...

Your 2015 Golden Globe Winners

Here's a 2015 Razzie nominations shortlist

As awards shows increasingly become more irrelevant, the Razzies are fading away even more so. As negativity is spread so much through social media, most people don't feel like listening to that stuff anymore. Take this shortlist of nominat...

15 documentaries advance for Academy Awards

Documentary film is awesome, but most people don't rush out to watch it or even have the ability to do that if they wanted. You usually get sucked into a documentary by accident and then you remember how great they can be. So here are the 1...

Neil Patrick Harris to host the 87th Annual Academy Awards

Here are your 2014 Razzie winners and losers

The Academy Awards have come and gone, and while they were full of pleasant moments (the super selfie, the pizza, Lupita Nyong'o and Matthew McConaughey's speeches), the Razzies also happened but were full of not so pleasant things. Namely ...

Flixist Awards 2012: Best Documentary

The much maligned documentary gets an unfair shake. You say documentary to someone and they think talking heads and boredom. However, as this year's nominees show, that's pretty much one of the most inaccurate statements ever. Documentaries...
