Review: Sausage Party

Do I want to start eating dirt? Perhaps, as an individual who already entertains questions on whether or not I’m morally comfortable (in spite of a true appreciation for) eating meat, I should have more deeply considered whether or no...

Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

In my long tenure here at Flixist I've carved out a niche for myself. If you see a review for a Seth Rogen film or a sequel to a comedy, chances are it's my words you're reading. So little did I know I'd stick around here long enough for th...

 
 
 
 
Night Before Review photo

Review: The Night Before

When Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produce a film, you pretty much know what you're going to get. As the duo have made their way through the romantic comedy, high school buddy film, stoner comedy, old Hollywood existential, superhero story, ...

Watch the first trailer for AMC's Preacher adaptation

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher is one of the best comic books of the 90s. Hard-hitting, hard-drinking, and just plain hardcore, Preacher is an over-the-top, ultra-violent riff on westerns in which a preacher named Jesse Custer...

Review: Steve Jobs

I was texting a friend about Steve Jobs over the weekend, the new biopic written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle. Sorkin thankfully avoided the birth-to-death biopic that we've all seen and grown tired of by now. Instead Jobs' l...

First poster for AMC's Preacher revealed

Back when I collected comics in high school Preacher was the totally bad ass cool kid who did whatever the hell he wanted. It's interesting it's taken so long to adapt to any screen, but AMC is finally bringing it to life. One does won...

Neighbors renews its lease

Neighbors had, to me, one of the most memorable, laugh-out-loud trailers in recent memory. Unfortunately, and perhaps personally, the film didn't deliver quite as many laughs. The general public seems to disagree, however, and it was c...

Universal's Steve Jobs film gets official title and cast

This Steve Jobs biopic has been through the ringer. After years of director changes, big stars (Christian Bale) joining and leaving the film, and Sony dropping the project after budget concerns, Steve Jobs (the film's now official name) fin...

Nick's Top 15 Movies of 2014

It was the best of films, it was the blurst of films. Hey everyone I'm Nick Valdez, News Editor here for Flixist and you've probably seen my name on a good chunk of the stuff written here. If not, then I'll tell you a bit about myself. I li...

Nick's Top 10 Movie Music Moments of 2014

Music plays an integral role in film. Easily ignored, easily forgotten, a film's soundtrack is the little celebrated framework of cinema. But when sound and sight marry into a great scene, you get some of the best moments. Like in 2013, 201...

The Interview grossed $31 million on VOD despite piracy

When Sony released The Interview on most video demand services but its own, it was promptly pirated nearly 100 million times. At first it seemed like this news would only deter studios from simultaneous theatrical and VOD releases for big n...

 
 
 
The Interview Review photo

Review: The Interview

After a crazy couple of weeks of Sony hacks, full on terrorist attack threats, cancellations, and a last minute reneging, I sort of forgot that at the center of all this mess was a comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. Under normal c...

 
 
 
Why The Interview? photo

Why did it have to be The Interview?

The Interview is the most important film of 2014.  Does that sentence depress anyone else? It really should, because it's undoubtedly true. The film that will have the greatest impact on the world at large is not Boyhood or Selma&...

Final Trailer for Rogen and Goldberg's The Interview

I've been worried how Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were possibly going to follow up This is the End, hands down one of the best films of 2013, after their recently produced effort Neighbors showed quite a few cracks in their comedy. Then a...

First Red Band trailer for The Interview has some jokes

After watching this latest Red Band trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's latest film, The Interview, I think I'm okay with its push from October to December. There are some good jokes here as the trailer reveals more of the plot, but...

Watch this 20 minute MTV special for The Interview

Just as how MTV once had a cool promotion for This is the End last year, this year they're working with Sony to promote Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview. I'm pretty excited for it, North Korea seems less excited, but now that w...

Sony is digitally altering The Interview

You know who hates democracy and freedom? Sony. They've kowtowed to pressure from North Korea about some crazy issues it has with the comedy, which is about two interviewers who get to sit down with Kim Jong Un. What's the change? They'll b...

Review: Neighbors

I had completely written off Neighbors. Coming off of Seth Rogen's last starring role in This is the End, the first trailer for Neighbors underwhelmed me. I've gotten used to Rogen acting, writing, and directing his own films so I was a lit...

New 'Neighbors' red band trailers are hilariously raunchy

It is an interesting transformation to see Seth Rogen go from playing schluby, sweet, stoney screw-ups to a new father who is worried about neighborhood parties waking his baby. But Rogen plays a good dorky dad, and these two new t...

Rogen and Gordon-Levitt coming back together for Xmas

The heavily under appreciated 50/50 was probably one of Seth Rogen's best performances and really landed Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an entirely awesome human being in every way for me. It's exciting to hear that they'll be getting back to...

Rogen and Franco recreated Kanye West's "Bound 2"

Seth Rogen's R-rated animated film is now being made

Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Evan Goldberg have evidently been bandying about the idea of an R-rated animated film for some time now, and now that they have all the monies from things like This is the End they can make it. So they're go...

This is the End getting re-released in theaters soon

This is the End was the best film of the Summer hands down (Fast & Furious 6 notwithstanding). It brought the biggest surprises, biggest laughs, and most memorable moments (that finale had to be the greatest thing I've seen in years). S...

Flix for Short: The Real World: This is the End Edition

This is the End is one of the funniest films of the year so far if you're a fan of Seth Rogen and his gang. Even if you're not, you're still going to find yourselves laughing. A good gauge of how funny This is the End is going to be to you...

Review: This is the End

I've been harsh toward This is the End from the very beginning. First batch of trailers painted the film as a "Hey look at [enter famous name here] acting wacky!" sort of comedy, but as the trailers rolled on and hinted at the bigger pictur...

New This is the End posters take yo panties off

I'm still holding firm in my belief that This is The End, the post-apocalyptic Rapture comedy starring famous funny guys like Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as themselves, is going to go either one of two ways. It's either going to be really f...

Trailer: This is the End (Red Band)

This new Red Band trailer for This is the End has enough new content and hints of plot (it seems to be a biblical apocalypse) to help you figure out what kind of movie it's going to be. It's filled to the brim with comedians like Seth Roge...

This is the End is somewhat more nigh

This is the End might be one of the more anticipated comedies of the year. We'll all be anticipating two days less now as the film has been bumped up to a June 12 release instead of a June 14 release. Those two days should give the fil...

Trailer: This is the End (Red Band)

Well, for a movie I didn't even know existed, this trailer for This is the End tickled my funny bone just enough to make me want more. Based on the short film Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse, This is the End tells the story ...

The stereotype of the Jewish mother is probably one of the few stereotypes you can still throw out there without a single person shouting foul. This is because, unlike other stereotypes where exceptions can be found easily left and right, t...
