Behaving Badly Review photo

Review: Behaving Badly

If you've followed my reviews here on Flixist, you'll realize that I'm particularly drawn to smaller VOD projects in between the big releases for any bevy of reasons. Whether it's because it features pretty ladies, pretty gentleman, or pret...

 
 
Hunger Games Teaser photo

Comic-Con trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

I'm loving the advertising campaign for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 so far. Continuing on with the minimalist teasers is the Comic-Con trailer which contains the first actual footage from the film. Not much is said, but a lot is ...

 
 
 
The Giver photo

Character posters for The Giver feature my boo, Taylor Swift

Although Taylor Swift said we'd never ever ever get back together, I'm still clinging on to hope because she's just the best person. As an example of this, she's in the upcoming film based on The Giver. Although the first trailer loses the ...

First images of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

I've been a little hesitant toward the next film in the Hunger Games series ever since it was announced Mockingjay would be split into two parts. Mockingjay is my favorite in the trilogy (the first half anyway, go figure), and the more...

 
 
Divergent Review photo

Review: Divergent

Back before the final Twilight film hit theaters, I wrote up an article in which I discussed whether or not certain Young Adult book films would be the "next big thing." My initial outlook for Divergent looked good, but that was way before ...

First trailer for 'The Maze Runner' is intense

The first trailer for the film adaptation of James Dashner's The Maze Runner has succeeded in making me curious about an upcoming film/ book trilogy that I didn't know existed until a few hours ago. This intense trailer exposes b...

First Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I poster is on fire

It feels like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out just yesterday. With the final book in the series, Mockingjay, being split into two parts, expect one final push for The Hunger Games. Although The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part ...

Nick's Flixmas: I'll Be Home For Christmas

Because it was on Netflix and I needed a film to fill the gap between now and the Twelve Days of Nick's Flixmas (which will officially start on the 14th since I'm considering Christmas Day as a part of this rather than end it on the 24th li...

 
 
Catching Fire Review photo

Review: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I'm a pretty big fan of The Hunger Games series of books. I tore through them in a day and while Catching Fire isn't my favorite in the series, it does have the most intriguing setups in the trilogy. The production for Catching Fire has not...

 
 
I Still Belieb trailer photo

First trailer for Justin Bieber documentary, Believe

In a spiritual sequel to Justin Bieber's Never Say Never documentary, Believe, oh wait Justin Bieber's Believe sorry, this documentary catalogs the sad and terrible life of the fallen teen idol. Wait, little girls still like Justin Bieber?...

 
 
Divergent Trailer photo

Second trailer for Divergent diverges from the norm

Awhile back I wrote an article claiming that Divergent was going to be "the next big teen thing." Ever since the Twilight Saga ended, there's been a notable void in the box office landscape for a romantic thriller for teens. You can argue ...

 
 
Vampire Academy Trailer photo

Second Vampire Academy trailer is pretty much the same

Vampire Academy (dropping the Blood Sisters subtitle) is pretty much a movie made for me. It's got cute girls that are really cute vampires, it's adapted from the book by the same writer who wrote Heathers (which is one of the best teen fi...

Final Trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire already looks much better than its predecessor. It's got a nice mix of orange and blues, less shaky cam, Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays a bad guy, and Jennifer Lawrence is so hot right now. Now we have the fi...

Flix for Short: Noah

Noah debuted as part of the Toronto International Film Festival this year and garnered plenty of buzz as a creative short. It's easy to see why as it's go a great gimmick that the entire film's plot plays out over the many social netw...

First trailer for Divergent, the next big teen thing

In case you missed MTV's Video Music awards on Sunday, know you didn't miss much. Justin Timberlake did a thing with four old guys, Kevin Hart flailed his arms and legs around, and Lady Gaga went to the beach or something. What happened be...

 
 
How I Live Now photo

First trailer for How I Live Now, starring Soairse Ronan

How I Live Now is an upcoming adaptation of a book of the same name. The story's about Daisy (Soairse Ronan, who's so hot in the teen book world right now) who's sent to England to live with her relatives. She falls in love and goes throug...

See The Mortal Instruments early and free

Evidently this one is kind of a big deal. I have no background on it since I haven't read a young adult novel since Hunger Games and I'm not really planning to jump into it. Suffice to say mythical angel teenagers fight it out to save ...

Vampires are still cool in Vampire Academy Trailer

At this rate there won't be anymore young adult novels to adapt to the big screen. Vampire Academy:Blood Sisters does seem a bit special in that totally nondescript way since it looks like a cross between Harry Potter and Twilight and...

Second Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer is hungry

When the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiered during the MTV Movie Awards, I was pleased with what I had seen. A notable bump in narrative quality, camerawork, and just all around coolness. Does the second trailer do ...

 
 
R-Rated Children photo

Should kids be allowed into R-rated movies?

Sorry we're a day late, folks, but festival season has officially kicked off and that makes scheduling everything else much more difficult. Next week we should be back on track. To make up for our lateness, we've got a fuller cast than usu...

 
 
Percy Jackson 2 Trailer photo

Trailer: Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

Here's the second trailer for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, which saw fit to change its title to coincide with the changing of its release date (releasing August 7th rather than the 16th), and it's pretty much the same as the first....

 
 
Catching Fire Teaser photo

Trailer: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I took a bullet for all of you. Tonight (or last night depending on when you see this) I watched through the MTV Movie Awards (and its multiple Ted nominations for some reason) just so I could grab this teaser for all of you. Should I have...

Trailer: Carrie

Now we finally have our first, full look at Carrie following that teaser from a few months back (before Carrie was bumped back to October 18th) and it definitely delivers. Although it shares more than a fair share visual content with Brian...

Trailer: Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters

How exactly does the Percy Jackson series replace Uma Thurman as Medusa? With Stanley Tucci as Dionysus and Nathan Fillion as Hermes of course! Sure there are other folks here too, as the cast reunites for the second film, but I'm sure mos...

Trailer: Something in the Air

Something in the Air is the newest tale from director Olivier Assayas. Assayas is well-known for his 2010 TV mini-series Carlos, which told the tale of revolutionary/terrorist Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, also known as Carlos the J...

Maggie Q and Zoe Kravitz join the cast of Divergent

Now that Twilight is fading into the obscure and Hunger Games is a beast all of its own, it's time for a new series of films to fill that tweensie void. And that series is Divergent. I talked about this awhile back explaining that Divergent...

 
 
The We and the I Review photo

Review: The We and the I

It's funny to write this, but there are times that I think I understand young people less and less as I get older. Not that I'm ancient, but now that I'm settling into my thirties, I'm beginning to realize just how drastically different the...

Fresh batch of Battle School logos from Ender's Game

Although Ender's Game has a lot going for it (like a craggly Harrison Ford and a score from the man who scored the underrated Glory), I still think it's going to debut to little fanfare. It's story is wonderfully dark (but somehow feat...

 
 
New Twilight? photo

Which Young Adult series will take Twilight's crown?

What exactly made The Twilight Saga so special? So special that is spawned off five multi million dollar films, fifty shades of pretenders, and left a gash on the industry now that it's gone. Executives have figured out that Twilight phenom...

Vampire Academy to be adapted with Mean Girls director

The next book series fighting for the attention of the tweensies is Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. Reliance Entertainment and IM Global have purchased the rights to adapt the first in the six (SIX) book series, Vampire Academy: Blood...

 
 
The Way, Way Back Review photo

Sundance Review: The Way, Way Back

The losers of high school dramas are cooler than me. Anthony Michael Hall and Jesse Eisenberg would be my high school's presidents, not wallflowers. It happens so often: the seemingly hopeless male protagonist, that we are supposed to belie...

 
 
Very Good Girls Review photo

Sundance Review: Very Good Girls

Dakota Fanning is now old enough to play the role of the older sister and it freaks me out. Witnessing a child actor, one much younger than me, mature into a young adult is a monumental event in life. It feels like a sign post, displaying t...

Trailer: 21 and Over

I love that 21 and Over is now being billed as a "Skylar Astin" movie instead of "The Hangover with teens and that one kid from Turbo" now that Pitch Perfect has gone on to be a moderate success. Still this new trailer shows that the ...

Here's the first four minutes of Warm Bodies

I've been excited for Warm Bodies ever since I saw the first trailer (and then it played again right before Twilight 5: Die Harder the Day After Tomorrow As Long As It's Before Yesterday) and it seemed like a nice way to reinvigorate the c...

Trailer: Warm Bodies

The first Warm Bodies trailer showed off its interesting premise of "R," a zombie capable of thought, coming back to life thanks to falling in love. Even if that premise sounds horribly cheesy in a Twilight kind of way, thankfully Warm Bod...
