Review: Ford v Ferrari

Cars have a certain pull. They are loud. They go fast. They are dangerous. They are everything that makes being alive fun rolled into one. They are are also a good mode of transportation. The roar of the engine and the speed at which they c...


Ford v Ferrari is a race for the ages

For six years straight, vehicles designed and made by Enzo Ferrari dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A grueling race around an eight-and-a-half mile track with speeds reaching over 200 miles-per-hour, the race was initially created to tes...


Review: Suburbicon

It's frustrating to watch someone or something you know that has the potential to be stellar falter under the stress of itself. You see it a lot in American television where they milk as much out of a series until it is nothing but a wit...

Great Wall photo

Great Wall director speaks up about White Washing

Last week the first trailer for The Great Wall dropped, and as it was a movie about China with its lead being not Chinese cries of white washing went up. And it is, of course, white washing. It would make a lot more sense to have a ful...

Jason Bourne Review photo

Review: Jason Bourne

My memory of the first three Bourne films is a bit like Jason Bourne’s memories of, well, everything: It’s fuzzy, jumpy, and full of Matt Damon hitting things. I remember liking the movies, though being disoriented by the fights...


Golden Globes to prevent dramas from competing as comedies

The Golden Globes were an unfunny joke this year, anchored by its comparatively unfunny Best Comedy, The Martian. The film's win, paired with lead actor Matt Damon's Best Comedy Actor win, was met with almost unanimous ire. However, the Hol...

Jason Bourne photo

Jason Bourne assumes we know him in first trailer

The Bourne franchise was supposed to be going its own merry way without Matt Damon, but after The Bourne Legacy failed to be a mega hit the actor was lured back to the character to help the universe out again. The first tease for Jason...

Martian Review photo

Review: The Martian

If you haven't read The Martian you should because it's better than whatever you're reading now (most likely). It's one of the most enthralling pieces of science fiction to come along in ages and it's an incredibly quick and easy read....


New trailer for The Martian is pretty spoilery

Are you excited to check out Ridley Scott's The Martian? If so, it might not be a terrible idea to pass on the newest trailer for the adaptation of Andy Weir's hit novel, due out in October. In short, the new trailer isn't playing coy at al...

The Martian photo

The Martian goes viral with new interviews

Anyone who has read The Martian knows that it's pretty damn amazing how quickly you get attached to the characters despite the brevity of the book. The crew themselves is probably the most important to nail, and judging from this new v...

The Martian Trailer photo

First trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian

Although Ridley Scott has had a few misses lately, his adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian might shape up to be quite a film. It's got a great cast with Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena...

Not Marvin photo

Plenty of first looks at Ridley Scott's The Martian

The novel The Martian is still in my must read pile, but it's supposed to be a fantastic and science-based tale of space survival, which is basically Ridley Scott's wheelhouse, so the adaptation is basically made for the man. We alread...

Interstellar Review photo

Review: Interstellar

In SCREENWRITING 101, Film Crit Hulk devotes an entire chapter to plot holes. A subsection of that chapter specifically discusses the works of Christopher Nolan, using The Dark Knight as the primary example. Christopher Nolan has a reputati...

Damon in Bourne photo

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning for Bourne

Remember when Jeremy Renner took over the Jason Bourne franchise and was going to basically do a whole new set of trilogies? Yea. Not so fast. Deadline is confirming a rumor that went around last year that Matt Damon and director Paul Green...

Monuments Men Review photo

Review: The Monuments Men

When monuments men was delayed from award season to a early February release it didn't cause too much concern. The line that the film wasn't quite ready seemed plausible, since there's no way a film with this cast, taking place in WWII and ...

Monuments Men SB Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for The Monuments Men

Releasing later this week (since it was delayed from its intended release last December) is George Clooney's The Monuments Men, and I couldn't be more excited about it. It's filled to the brim with an amazing cast, hearkens back to old ens...


See Monuments Men early and free

I think we've all been waiting very patiently for The Monuments Men to come out ever since it was delayed back in December. The cast is awesome, the story is true and it's a WWII movie to boot. There's a reason everyone is dying t...

Interstellar Teaser photo

First teaser for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Christopher's Nolan's follow up to the Dark Knight Trilogy, Interstellar, has been kept tightly under wraps. All we know about the film so far is that is stars Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, and basically every good ...

Monuments Men delay photo

The Monuments Men delayed to 2014

The extremely charming The Monuments Men, directed by George Clooney, is unfortunately going to be pushed from its December 18th release date to sometime in 2014 (missing out on Oscar season). According to The LA Times, George Clooney state...

The Monuments Men Trailer photo

Second Monuments Men trailer continues to be charming

The Monuments Men, one of Flixist's most anticipated films of the holiday season, looks special. It's directed by a charming man (George Clooney), with a charming premise (a group museum directors sneak into Nazi Germany in order to save p...

Elysium Book photo

Book: Elysium: The Art of the Film

It's taken me a long time to get to Elysium: The Art of the Film, published by Titan Books and in stores now. There's a lot to admire in the design elements of the movie and how rich and lived-in the world of Elysium is. A few personal matt...

Interstellar photo

Matt Damon joins Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Wow. What. A. Lineup. Joining the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, (possibly) John Lithgow, and  Jessica Chastain is Matt Damon (fresh off the heels of his big budget science film that tanked). Matt Damon joi...


Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass could return to Bourne

It never really made sense to me why The Bourne Legacy didn't have a bit more Matt Damon crossover to be a true passing of the torch for the series. Evidently, that was in the plans originally, but never came about so we got a sort of ...

Elysium photo

New Elysium images show Matt Damon getting tattoos

If the trailer or last batch of images weren't enough to satisfy your Elysium cravings (in that context it sounds like a vitamin octogenarians need to take for strong bones, "Did you take your Elysium today?"), here's a new batch of eight i...

Trailer: Elysium photo

Trailer: Elysium

Although I have been slowly making fun of Neil Blomkamp's Elysium through each post for its generic, product endorsed look, I have instantly fallen in love with this trailer. Everything from the class warfare (it's the people on Earth vers...

Elysium poster photo

Neil Blomkamp's Elysium gets new poster and images

Last time a few images of Neil Blomkamp's (who last directed the marvelous District 9) Elysium were featured on the site, I joked that the future meant folks automatically had to have things embedded in their faces and were owned by Kawasak...


Check out new set photos from The Monuments Men

Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox are teaming to bring George Clooney’s The Monuments Men to the big screen. The film is based on the book The Monument Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History wr...

Promised Land photo

Review: Promised Land

One of the downsides to having an awards season is that studios now make movies to be award contenders and buzz stars generating around the film before it even is seen by anybody. This leads to movies that never really deserved to have awar...


New Elysium image has bald Matt Damon, product placement

Elysium is the follow up effort of Neil Blomkamp (the awesome District 9), which has had a few delays. It's been in production since 2010, and has been delayed several times to its new release date of August next year...and that's probably ...


Matt Damon is unlikely to return to Bourne franchise

While continuing on with the Bourne films after Jason Bourne's story had ended turned out to a bad idea after all, Matt Damon still entertained the thought of possibly returning to the franchise if everything aligned correctly before t...


International Trailer: We Bought a Zoo

Where has this Cameron Crowe been? We haven't had a truly great movie about the man since Almost Famous, and that was a damn masterpiece, pretty much. Since then? Vanilla Sky, which I unabashedly love, despite it being a fairly crappy movi...


Trailer: We Bought a Zoo

It's been a while since Cameron Crowe made a film. God, it really was 2005's Elizabethtown. That's an eternity! We Bought a Zoo stars Matt Damon and Scarlett "God, I'm Embarrassed Today" Johansson, and the plot is basically ...


Review: Contagion

I had a really awful experience one time. A few of my buddies got together and I joined them at the movies. We saw Traffic. I guess there was an upside because we earned a new catchphrase. Years to come, whenever we passed under the neon...


New Contagion poster has more Gwyneth Paltrow death face

I know that it's cool to pick on Gwyneth Paltrow, what with the Oscar snafu, naming children after fruits, and her inexcusable persistence of having a singing career just because she's married to a guy from Coldplay, but I can't help but fi...


Cameron Crowe's 'Zoo' being scored by Sigur Ros frontman

Director Cameron Crowe's been pretty quiet lately and I've been impatient for his next, mostly because Vanilla Sky was unfairly abused by film critics and I worried he might be hesitant. When I think back to Vanilla Sky, and why I appreciat...


Contagion poster plays on fears of germs and geography

I don't know about you, but I've been super-excited for Steven Soderbergh's Contagion ever since the trailer dropped. It' got a stellar cast, beautiful cinematography, and Gwyneth Paltrow dies within the first few minutes. It's looking to b...


Jon Stewart producing film on jailed former guest Bahari

Back in 2009, the Newsweek journalist Maziar Bahari was arrested during the Iranian election protests. He was imprisoned for 118 days, with all but eleven of those days spent in solitary confinement. His experience was obviously terrifying ...


Matt Damon considering Father Daughter directorial debut

Matt Damon, seen looking suitably director-y in the header image ("More intensity!"), is considering making his debut behind the camera with the extensively named Father Daughter Time: A Tale Of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses, in which he ...


Review: The Adjustment Bureau

Let's get one important point out of the way first: no matter what the posters and trailers may claim, The Adjustment Bureau bears little to no resemblance to either Bourne or Inception, apart from in the presence of Bourne scribe George No...
