Flixist Community Discusses: X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the seventh X-Men film. Let that sink in for a moment. From the time the X-Men series began we've had world politics change forever, several global warming scares, and three different incarnations of the Hulk. ...

Magneto assassinated JFK...apparently

In X-Men: Days of Future Past, we learn that the mutants from the first five or so movies are being hunted down by giant robots. It's probably because of crimes like the one in this video. In the world of the mutants and this video, The Be...

The Counselor Review photo

Review: The Counselor

Review: 12 Years a Slave

When 12 Years a Slave played at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, there were reports of walkouts during screenings, even among the press. It wasn't because the movie was bad. Far from it. People walked out because 12 Years...

X-Men: Days of Future Past gets two not terrible posters

When the first posters for X-Men: First Class appeared to be nothing more than a noteworthy idea ruined by terrible photoshop decisions, you'd think Fox would keep from trying that "merging old and new" again. Well, they tried again and the...

Assassin's Creed adaptation gets a release date

2015, a year packed to the brim with so much nerdy goodness with Star Wars: Episode VII, UMAS: 2015, Pitch Perfect 2, the Fantastic Four reboot, possible Justice League adaptation, possible Toy Story 4, Avatar 2...basically everything ever....

Michael Fassbender producing/starring in Assassin's Creed

We knew that Ubisoft had basically gone rouge with its big screen plans to make an Assassin's Creed film since they backed out of a deal with Sony to produce and decided to go it on their own. What we didn't know is that they'd be going aft...


Flixist Movie Club: Prometheuscast

That's right, the Flixist Movie Club is back with Prometheuscast! Max, Jenika, Dre, Liz, and I are joined by Destructoid's Jim Sterling as we talk about Ridley Scott's latest science fiction opus. We delve into some of the movie's weird thi...


Review: Prometheus

Do not believe anything Ridley Scott has told you. Prometheus is a prequel to the pre-existing Alien film series. The corporate backers are one half of that template for evil sci-fi corporations, Weyland-Yutani, and a keen eye will cat...


See Shame in NYC or LA, followed by a discussion on sex

Shame was one of Alec's favorite movies of last year and also accounted for several entries in his list of Oscar snubs. To commemorate the film's release on DVD and Blu-ray next week, the film is being screening on April 17th...

Michael Fassbender to star in Irish mythology adaptation

Flixist Awards 2011: Best Actor

How brilliant are actors?! They can look at a tennis ball and see a bus. They can run down the street being pursued by an alien predator, then remember that exact feeling for when they're in a movie. They can have a real life name, a fake p...


Michael Fassbender can recognize his own penis

Some people have told me that I am obsessed with Michael Fassbender's penis, but I don't think that's fair. Just because I talk about it all the time and make jokes and whatever doesn't mean it "preoccupies or fills my mind continually, in...


Steve McQueen to make another movie about the UK in 1981

Steve McQueen, director of Shame (my second favorite film of the year), has announced his next project. Like with his debut film Hunger (which is amazing, I might add), McQueen will be turning to 1981 Great Britain, making a film about the ...
