Latest John Wick 3 trailer has more dogs, more murder

The latest trailer for John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum (because this is a movie that needs such a hoity toity title) has dropped and shows off exactly the sort of absurd action you'd expect from a series that continues to spiral from the f...

Review: Siberia

Generally speaking, films involving diamonds, gangsters, and infidelity that culminate in a gunfight tend to lean towards the exciting. Normally Keanu Reeves in a movie such as this adds grit and deadpan determination, but unfortunately, th...

'John Wick: Chapter Three' just got a release date

In an era of derivative, bland action movies, the John Wick series has been fighting against the tide with excellent fights, and minimal BS. While the second film was less well received than the series first outing, John Wick: Chapter ...

Review: The Bad Batch

Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night was a sparse yet stunning debut that overflowed with languid cool. So much of Girl Walks gets by on its moody/artsy posturing, which had shades of Jim Jarmusch's early work mixed with an ...

Continental centric prequel to John Wick planned for TV

In what could only be described as an answer to my prayers, a prequel of sorts to the 2014 breakout hit John Wick is being planned for TV. The kicker? It's all centered around The Continental hotels where no assassin business of any sort ca...

How To Do It: The Matrix Rebooted

The other night we learned that Warner Bros. is developing a reboot of The Matrix, with an interest in Michael B. Jodan as the lead. Zak Penn has been tapped to write the treatment for the reboot, but nothing else is solid at the moment. Th...

Review: John Wick: Chapter 2

In the John Wick cinematic universe, everyone who matters knows John Wick, by face, name, and reputation. They know the stories, they see the man, and they get a little concerned: “You working again, John?” asked the neighborhoo...

John Wick 2 has a new trailer with sexy Keanu Reeves

Gone are the days when February meant godawful movies of low budget and little critical fanfare, welcome are the days when February heralds the release of just ridiculous 'certain-set-of-skills' action movies and (*Golden Globe nominated*) ...

NYCC: John Wick trailer debuts with Lawrence Fishburne

John Wick was one of the biggest surprises of 2014. What looked like a B movie starring Keanu Reeves turned out to be one of the most confident and competent action films of the last few years. Flixist as a whole has been looking forward to...

John Wick 2 has a new poster with sexy Keanu Reeves

Here at Flixist, we appreciate the fine art of releasing one sheet teaser posters featuring an aging star hinting at everything (read: being incredibly vague) to come. Usually, this specific genre involves said aging actor gripping a gun an...

Red Ban trailer for Keanu brings us Key and Peele and kitten

Parody movies come in all shapes and sizes, but most of us think of something like Scary Movie when we think of them.Those can be funny, but truly great parody comes from creating something original that riffs on tropes, and that is e...

 
 
 
Knock Knock Review photo

Review: Knock Knock

Keanu Reeves is a treasure. Thanks to his genuine love of the craft, I'm always willing to see whatever he decides to be a part of. No matter the project he always gives as much effort as possible, sometimes even elevating the worst soundin...

New Knock Knock trailer kind of ruins it

When the first trailer for the Eli Roth directed Knock Knock landed I was pretty excited. We had just learned we wouldn't be seeing Green Inferno any time soon (it finally lands this year) and this looked like a pretty good send u...

New trailer for Knock Knock full of sex and Keanu Reeves

While we may never get to see director Eli Roth's Green Inferno, we do have something from him that may sate your appetite for his particular brand of gonzo horror. Knock Knock's second trailer is here and it seems right up the Roth alley w...

John Wick 2 is happening, celebrate good times

People keep asking if I'm back. Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back. We didn't review John Wick here on Flixist (which was a major oversight on my part because I saw it during my vacation that weekend and totally didn't write on it), so here's a ...

You need to watch this John Wick Kill Counter

Sometimes words are superfluous, but should "John Wick Kill Counter" not sell you on this video, I'll add a few.  Keanu Reeves is back. Keanu Reeves is a badass. Keanu Reeves shoots about six dozen people in the head, and it is all th...

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...

Newest trailer for John Wick is a loose cannon

Since this newest trailer for John Wick is quick and dirty, I won't talk about this for long. There are two scenes different from the previous trailer (that mostly prove Willem Dafoe is in this for some reason), and Keanu Reeves is a ...

First trailer for John Wick starring Keanu Reeves and a puppy

John Wick has no right looking as interesting as it does. Revenge thrillers are always hit or miss. You take an aging actor, and send him out to kill some dudes. Sometimes it's goofy fun (Man of Fire), sometimes it's goofy for the wrong re...

Review: Man of Tai Chi

Most press screenings are pretty stodgy as far as audience reaction goes, even for comedies. When people laugh, it's often the very polite and quiet kind -- almost private -- a synonym for, "Oh my, how absolutely drôle." When wat...

47 Ronin trailer gives us some sweet Keanu

This newest trailer for 47 Ronin (starring Keanu Reeves, whoa) looks like a big and dumb spectacle, and there's probably nothing wrong with that. I mean, sure 47 Ronin is based off a much better film, and sure it pulls a Last Samurai and g...

UK trailer for 47 Ronin makes it look much more enjoyable

Maybe it was the extended length of the first trailer for 47 Ronin, or maybe it was just my chagrin over the bastardization of the story, but I was not sold at all on it. This UK trailer on the other hand gives me a bit more hope. It ...

Keanu Reeves turns Japanese in 47 Ronin trailer

So you gather a cast of awesome Japanese actors and you put them in a movie based on Japan's greatest story. You even keep the name of the story for your movie title, 47 Ronin. What's missing? A white hero, of course. Enter Keanu Reeves to...

Trailer: Man of Tai Chi

While this international trailer for Keanu Reeves' directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi, isn't exactly the best quality (that might be attributed to its lack of domestic release date), it certainly does bring enough dudes getting punched in t...

Director denied editing rights on Keanu Reeves' 47 Ronin

47 Ronin was already something of an oddity, being a 3D adaptation of an 18th century Japanese folk tale, which just so happened to star Keanu Reeves alongside an otherwise Japanese cast. The news that director Carl Rinsch may have been bar...
