Review: Penguin Highway

Youth being wiser than their age might be a well-worn trope of cinema, but it's effective for one simple reason: we all wish we had our current knowledge when we were young. The ability to make deductive choices, carefully weigh the outcome...

Zootopia Teaser photo

First teaser trailer for Disney's Zootopia

While I still miss Disney's 2D animated style since Winnie the Pooh was great but not a film to end the legacy on, Disney's been hitting it out of the park with their CG efforts. They've found quite a groove with Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and...

 
 
The Good Dinosaur Trailer photo

First teaser trailer for Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur has had a troubling development for the last few years. Hit with delays, losing a director, and a major reworking, the film we have now no longer resembles the original idea. It's hard to tell how much of the old ideas are...

 
 
X-Men: Apocalypse photo

First look at Jubilee and Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse

Every time I think X-Men: Apocalypse is packed with too many characters (or cameos at this rate), I look at their outfits and oh my jeebus do I change my mind instantly. I couldn't be happier that Apocalypse takes place in the 80s beca...

 
 
Max Trailer photo

First trailer for military dog film Max

I'm a sucker for a good dog movie. That goes double for sad dog movies, or movies about dogs that go on journeys. So this trailer for Max lumps all of that together, and I'm positive I'll be a blubbering mess after watching the full featur...

2014's Best Dog in Film

As good as the films of 2014 were, you know what was even better? The animals. There were lots of standout roles for animals this year, both real and imaginary. In almost every film I watched, there was some cute dog or cat hanging around j...

Trailer for White God features the dogpocalypse

Remember those awesome Homeward Bound movies? White God is nothing like that. Imagine the worst possible outcome for that film (and throw in Lady and the Tramp for good measure) and you've got what looks and sounds like a great film.  ...

Dancing Groot toy actually coming, but not what you wanted

People left Guardians of the Galaxy with two thoughts. The first being that the movie was awesome. The second being that they wanted a dancing Groot like those dancing Santas they have. Thankfully Marvel likes to sell things and have t...

Check out these squishy posters for Big Hero 6

If the totes adorbs first teaser for Disney/Marvel's upcoming Big Hero 6 didn't hammer home how cute it's going to be, these posters will definitely do the trick. I may be more of a sucker for cutesy things than most of you in the community...

First teaser for Paddington Bear makes me want marmalade

As a young child the strange puppet/stop-motion/animated/paper cutout Paddington Bear show was totally my jam. The books were good too, but that show, with its wonderful narration and unique look enticed me. So it's with great pleasur...

Every time Kermit the frog dances with a gold hat and cane, my heart grows three sizes. After watching the music video for the first song from Muppets Most Wanted entitled "Sequel Song," my heart nearly burst out of my chest alien-sty...

A look at the 2014 Oscar Nominated Animated Short Films

One easily overlooked part of the flurry of The Academy Awards is the shorts sections. Perhaps they seem less interesting or less consequential due to their bite-size nature, but to me, short films are often all the more accessible and feas...

Dumb and Dumber To photo

First official image of Dumb and Dumber To is to cute

Dumb and Dumber To is a sequel caught in an odd flux. It's probably not going to bring in a new audience, and chances are, fans of the old film will have forgotten why they enjoyed it in the first place. Dumb and Dumber was, well, dumb. But...

 
 
NF: Santa Buddies photo

Nick's Flixmas: Santa Buddies

The fact that a movie like Santa Buddies can exist still boggles my mind. What was originally just Air Bud, a movie a a cool friggin' dog that could shoot some cool friggin hoops for days, turned into Air Bud: Golden Retriever, Air Bud: Wor...

First poster for Muppets Most Wanted is too adorable

Muppets Most Wanted (formerly The Muppets...Again!) is one of the few sequels I'm happy they're making. The first Muppets was a hilarious trip down memory lane, and Muppets Most Wanted looks to continue that judging by that first teaser.&nb...

First poster for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel is Wes Anderson's next movie, and judging by this poster, I already want to see it. Budapest Hotel, like Anderson's 2012 movie Moonrise Kingdom, will have a killer lineup of acting talent; from Anderson veterans lik...

Trailer: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

In Ain't Them Bodies Saints, Roony Mara and Casey Affleck star as a star-crossed couple on the lam, and it looks pretty intense. Also, as Dre brings up regularly on Flixist's podcast, Flixistentialism, Casey Affleck is dreamy. And also a g...
