The 300 Week 20: THIS IS META!

Hey, you guys, welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my silly attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, and hidden gems to experience the wide world of cinema in all i...

Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

When Disney started rolling out their plans a long time ago for damn near every character in the Star Wars universe to have origin movies, the general reaction was one simple question: Why? Why was this necessary at all? It just s...

Review: Deadpool 2

Making a Deadpool movie involves a lot of nuance. Yeah, an absurd statement for the character that yells the word "chimichangas" constantly, but hear me out. Go too far down the spectrum, and you end up with a Deadpool that become...

Review: Atlanta Robbin' Season

Back in 2016, there were two shows on television that had my vested interest; Westworld and Atlanta. Westworld, as I’m sure you know, is about enslaved androids that look behave and feel just as humans do. It’s a science-fiction...

Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Yes, I invoked The Last Jedi, and no that's not because I want to instantly guarantee 11 million comments on the post. It's because, like that film but to a lesser extent, Avengers: Infinity War is not the movie you're expect...

Review: I Feel Pretty

You may or may not be a fan of Amy Schumer. I am. I find a lot of her humor insightful and hilarious. Her stand up special kind of sucked, though, and she's 50/50 on headlining movies so I was hoping to get back into enjoying her comedy wit...

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer is bananas

I wasn't a huge fan of Jurassic World when it first came out, but I can tell you that I liked that fact that it ended with t-rex, a raptor, and a genetically modified dino fighting it out in an obvious homage to early Hollywood m...

Flixist's mind-boggling superior summer movie preview

The summer blockbuster season is nigh, and as always that means Flixist is delighted to bring unto you our summer movie preview. This isn't a comprehensive list of every film coming out, it's just a list of movies we wanted to write about f...

Review: Blumhouse's Truth or Dare

I'm not sure if it was hubris or clarity that led Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse, to plaster the studio name before its new movie Blumhouse's Truth or Dare. There have been a plethora of other horror films within the past five years(!) with t...

Review: Rampage

When you're a child of four, you do everything with your brothers and sisters. You play together, you eat together, you even get haircuts together. And, if one of you is due for a dentist appointment, all of you are. There needs to be an...

Review: A Quiet Place

For the entire night after I saw A Quiet Place I thought every sound was too loud. I put something down and the noise it made stood out to me. Each footstep seemed to fall heavier than it should have. Opening a door was a cre...

I don't know how to feel about Infinity War

Marvel seems to be on a roll with its cinematic universe. Oh sure, it was always a massively popular franchise that raked in billions, but 2018 is a special year for Marvel. Not only did they have the release of Black Panther, which ha...

The 300 Week 13: Nostalgia? More Like Meh-stolgia, Amiright?

Review: Ready Player One

I've used the "insert X here" sub-header joke before, and now I really wish I hadn't because in other instances it was just a joke, but in the case of Ready Player One, Stephen Spielberg's new film based on the insanely popular book of...

Cannes bans Netflix because progress is bad

The resistance against Netflix and award validation has taken a new twist. As reported by THR, the streaming giant has been banned from competing in the Cannes Film Festival and thus banned from winning its coveted award, the Palme d&r...

Review: Isle of Dogs

Do you like Wes Anderson? Then you'll like Isle of Dogs. It's got everything we've come to expect from the director, who has basically created a genre named after himself. The film is full of his signature symmetrical shots; his stunni...

Review: Game Over, Man!

Die Hard doesn’t really need any sequels, but because Bruce Willis is still working, we’ll probably get at least one more anyway, in between Death Wish and Sixth Sense revivals. But, if the creators and ...

Review: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft is one of video games’s biggest icons. Even those not familiar with the wonky original 3D titles or the recently rebooted series know who Croft is, even if they can’t recognize her, or tell you what she’s like. ...

Review: Jessica Jones season 2

Fun fact: I watched all of the first season of Jessica Jones in a day. At the time, I was living in England and was so incredibly bored that I order some British pizza (it's just as disappointing as it sounds), camped out on a couch, and wa...

SXSW: Barry

Veteran comedic actor Bill Hader and writer-producer Alec Berg knew they had to develop a series for HBO, but didn't know what. While bouncing ideas off each other, Bill said, "What if I was a hitman." Alec was skeptical. "No, it'd be me, B...

Review: A Wrinkle In Time

I do not envy anyone that wants to make a high concept sci-fi epic. There are so many different pieces that need to fall into place in order to make something that's truly special and engaging. Most of the time, when you see a massive sci-f...

Review: Death Wish

I don't know how Death Wish's release wasn't delayed. It is quite possibly the most ill-timed release in the history of cinema. A gun-toting vigilante mows down "bad guys" in Chicago with gags about the ease of getting a fire arm, tort...

Review: Annihilation

Annihilation is one of the best recent print to film adaptations. Strangely enough, this is not because it’s entirely faithful to the source material. Far from it. Sure, the bones might be same, as they are between any two human being...

Joss Whedon exits Batgirl film, "didn't have a story"

Warner Bros. and DC seem to enjoy announcing a new superhero movie every other day, and it's no surprise that most of them will never actually make it to the big screen. Enter Joss Whedon's Batgirl project, the latest casualt...
