The Decade Decathlon: 2017

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. With 2016 relegated to the year that no one rememb...


Sequel for overrated Baby Driver is possibly happening soon

I love Baby Driver as long as I don't watch past the first 20 minutes or so. Edgar Wright constructed a masterful short film involving Ansel Elgort's character, Baby, and his music-based driving skills. Then he extended it into a featu...


Flixist on Youtube- Top 5 Buddy Cop Movies of All-Time

In honor of Stuber, I counted down my five favorite Buddy-Cop movies of all-time. Mel Gibson definitely not make the list and neither did Jackie Chan and Chris Rock! But Michael Bay's directorial brilliance somehow did! Check out the list b...


Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho adds some new faces

Edgar Wright might be my favorite director working today. His sense of humor and layered shots in his movies are so well constructed that rewatches are a necessity. He has cast Thomasin McKenzie from Leave No Trace and Matt Smith ...

Watch the opening car chase from Edgar Wright's Baby Driver

Baby Driver was pretty good. Our own Matthew Razak liked Edgar Wright's latest film, though acknowledged in his review that the film's technical wizardry doesn't quite overcome the flawed story and sometimes inconsistent characters. I'm mor...


Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is a director with a specific vision, and it's led him to make some of the most genre-bending films in the past decade, and some of the funniest. It's also led him to leave Ant-Man. How do you bounce back from someone not letti...

Baby Driver casting photo

Lily James cast in Edgar Wrights Baby Driver

Edgar Wright promptly moved on from Ant-Man -- even though the rest of us are still sad about it -- and dove into some more awesome original content with his next film Baby Driver, which will be led by Ansel Elgort as driver with a hea...

There's no Strange Viggo, but we may see the Ant-Man test

While Dr. Strange may still show up in Thor: The Dark World, we won't see him battling anyone in the buff in a bathhouse. Marvel exec Victoria Alonso completely shut down the rumor that Viggo Mortensen was attached to cameo as Dr. Strange i...

Ant-Man may shoot as early as the end of this year

Regardless of what you think of Ant-Man as a character (one-time wife beater) or as a collection of super-powers (ant control/getting super small IS kinda lame), there might be something wrong with you if you're not excited for an Edgar Wri...
