Review: Dragon Ball Super: Broly

I don't think I'm being hyperbolic when I say that Dragon Ball Z is one of the most important anime to ever exist. For many, Dragon Ball Z was how we became diehard anime fans in the first place. I remember watching Toonami as a kid and bei...

It hasn't been that long since Netflix raised the price of their streaming service but the insanely successful carrier, hot off winning multiple awards and praise for Roma, is about to do it again. The service announced today that prices fo...

Sony Screen Gems to make a Just Dance movie

I don't think it needed mentioning, but video game film adaptations are usually never good. The hurdle that video game movies always run into is that they try to adapt several dozen hours of gameplay and narrative into a two-hour time frame...

Review: On the Basis of Sex

Biopics have come a long way in the last 20 years. What used to be extreme dramatizations of a person’s life have given way to more thoughtful looks at the humanity behind powerful figures. At our very core we are all humans and while...

Review: If Beale Street Could Talk

It's an incredibly sad reality to accept that racism is still prevalent in 2019. While we've come a long way from the 20th century and things like the "3/5ths Compromise" or "Jim Crow Laws," this nation still treats minorities with prejudic...

Jesse's top five favorite movies of 2018

2018 was one hell of a year for me. By the time this list gets posted, it'll be officially one year since I was asked to join the Flixist team! In that year I've been to film festivals, NYCC, seen some putrid, horrifying, no-good, vile, and...

Review: A Dog's Way Home

Greetings, humans. I am Lacey. I am the pupper of Jesse. I am here to tell you all of the new doggo movie, A Dog's Way Home. Why is Jesse not telling you of this new movie? Because my human is sleepy. He came back from the movie theater lat...

Flixist's worst reviewed movies of 2018

2018 may have had some truly phenomenal movies, but never forget that every year has its share of garbage. 2018 may not have had the smelliest garbage, but trash is trash no matter how you slice it. Thankfully audiences seemed to wise up th...

SXSW attendees will have the first shot at seeing Us

In 2017, Jordan Peele hit a moonshot with his directorial debut with horror psycho-thriller Get Out. Up to then, Peele was viewed as a comedy guru with his time on Key & Peele and Keanu before dropping a surprising horror movie tha...

The story of Skate Jam, the failed follow-up to Space Jam

I'm always fascinated by the story of movies that could have been. Projects that get announced and fade into obscurity are a real passion of mine and there are plenty of movies that I want to know about the history of. Like, why did a proje...

Review: Bird Box

One of the scariest, most anticipatory parts of a thriller (or horror) movie is what the evil itself looks like. Signs left the imagination running wild until M. Night Shyamalan made the extraterrestrial visitors visible late in the film. J...

Review: Mary Queen of Scots

As unpleasant as it may be for some people, think back to when you were in high school. Specifically, remember when you were in your high school history class. Remember those days when your history teacher told you that the class was going ...

Review: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The story of Spider-Man has been told a number of times through different mediums, but animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may be the first Spidey movie to admit it. Not only does this movie own that fact, but it makes this the ...

Review: Anna and the Apocalypse

I don't think I will ever be able to explain how Anna and the Apocalypse exists. Someone had to have woken up one day and decided "Gee, you know what the world needs? A musical about the zombie apocalypse set during Christmas!" Just by...

Here are five better names for the solo Harley Quinn movie

Warner Bros. has just announced the full title for the upcoming Cathy Yan directed Birds of Prey film. Instead of keeping things simple, we now have a gigantic run-on sentence to contend with. When shopping for the Blu-ray in the future, ma...

I forgot that Alita: Battle Angel still exists

It's weird that I keep on forgetting about Alita: Battle Angel. At the beginning of the year, I couldn't wait to get the chance to see this movie for a whole host of reasons. Not only has it been a passion project for James Cameron an...

Review: Overlord

For the longest time, I didn't think that Overlord would release. Not because it was in production hell or anything like that, but because it was a part of J. J. Abrams Cloverfield universe and those movies can be announ...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

In defense of jump scares in movies

There's nothing worse than a horror movie that isn't scary. When the entire purpose of your movie is to scare people and you fail to do that, then it's hard to deny that the movie completely failed at its job. There can be a lot of reason w...

The Birds is the dumbest horror movie concept ever

Picture this: [INT. 1962, Universal lot, Burbank, CA. Board meeting. Overworked studio execs fumbling paper, looking nervous.] EXEC 1: We’re all dry. We’ve got a big gap next spring, no way of filling it, what the heck are we go...

Review: First Man

Another year, another epic sci-fi movie that rolls into theatres to rake up award nominations. Since 2013, there's been a trend to release at least one big sci-fi movie that either focuses on scientifically accurate space adventures or a hi...

Review: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

I won’t beat around the bush here; this movie blows. I was gonna do this whole intro I normally do where I tell you about how scary the Goosebumps books were when I was a kid, and blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, and this new thing...

God Country takes a leap from the pages to the screen

In a world teeming with superhero sensory overload, sometimes a respite is needed. Sometimes the hero isn’t really a hero and only fights for good because there’s no other choice. A reluctant hero, perhaps. Welcome to God Coun...
