The Decade Decathlon: 2012

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. 2012 is unique when looking at the trajectory of t...


Lionsgate CEO says more Twilight, Hunger Games coming soon

Jon Feltheimer, formerly known as the CEO of Lionsgate, now known as the man who made teenage dreams come true, told Wall Street investors that there is no way his studio won't make more Twilight movies about angsty teenage vampires and the...


Review: Fifty Shades Darker

  Yeah, none of us here at Flixist actually saw it (so far, and Nick, I'm looking at you) ... Fifty Shades DarkerDirector: James FoleyRelease Date: February 10, 2017Rating: R  So, I'm going to pretend I did! Wait. This is too dif...

More Twilight films in the works...sort of

With all of the Young Adult properties out there now trying to fill the void Twilight left behind, you figure we'd never hear about the series again. Well, someone out there really wants to explore those films again. Luckily, not in the way...

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 could have been worse

Back when I reviewed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, I admired the saga's balance of tones (I gave the film a 75, and still stand by it to this day) but I absolutely hated the film's cheap CG effects. For the first half of the fil...


Here's your list of Razzie winners and losers

While we were stuck in Oscar mania, another set of awards took place a few nights beforehand. The 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards handed out "awards" to "winners" in ten categories ranging from Worst Actor to Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel (...


Twilight fan novel, Beautiful Bastard getting adapted

You know how I wrote that feature the other day taking guesses on what the next Twilight would be? Turns out I had misjudged the central audience of those movies. It wasn't for teeny boppers as I had first thought, it's for the amalgam of "...

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...


Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

There's no real way to predict what you're getting when watching one of the Twilight films. You either get a surprisingly corny and fun film (the first Twilight) or you'll get something severely disappointing like Breaking Dawn Part 1....


MGM continuing Twilight without Pattinson or Stewart

Everyone loves R-Patz and K-Stew, correct? Him with his stupid hair and shiny face, her with her grumbly countenance and sloppy posture. Truly, 'tis a love story for the ages, except for when she cheated on him with a forty-year old directo...


E.T. and the Twilight Saga will get one day re-releases

To celebrate E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (one of the most redundant names ever)'s 30th anniversary Blu-ray release, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies, and Universal Pictures are showing the digital remastered version in select theat...


Trailer: Breaking Dawn Part 2

I am so glad that I decided to use quotations when I described the last "final" trailer. This new "final" final trailer has a lot of the same footage as the previous one (it even shares the same thumbnail!), but it comes with about 40 or s...


Trailer: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Last night during MTV's VMA's (which I totes wasn't watching, I swear!), the "final" trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part II, or Twilight 5 for short, was released. Naturally, I freaked out...I mean, the little girls freaked ...


Two new images of Twilight 5, the shortest one currently

This summer I went on an endeavor to read through all four of the Twilight books for some reason and it has warped my perception of things. While the first Twilight was kind of good, the others left me hanging. The fifth and final film...


You will believe a werewolf wants to bang a child

In case you've forgotten, the final entry in the Twilight series features a werewolf(Tay-Lautes) that falls in love with a child(Mackenzie Foy) with the absolutely normal name of Renesemee. Photographic evidence is above and in the gal...


Trailer: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Yep, that's certainly a trailer for the last Twilight movie. I feel like this must inspire the same feelings in Twilight fans that the Dark Knight Rises trailer from yesterday inspired in me. They're going to see this, and f...


Take a look at Renesmee, the vampire kid from Twilight

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 was possibly one of the stupidest stories I've seen on screen, and this is coming from a guy who could actually tolerate the previous two films (not the first one, though). I can't even imagine how dumb the bo...


Three Twilight character posters revealed

Yesterday Summit announced what they called a "Coven Scavenger Hunt." By looking for clues on various Twilight fansites, fans could uncover three new Twilight character posters. Of course, being Twilight fans, all the clues were figured out...


Trailer: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

I have braved the 49 second teaser trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 (or rather, TWSBDP2) to present to you these very super-official important bullet points about the film that is going to change the rest of our liv...


Trailer: The Host

It looks like Stephanie Meyer was tired of writing Twilight and wanted to try something new. By "try something new," I mean "combine V and Animorphs and hope nobody notices." The Host takes place in what I guess is a not-so-distant future ...


Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment in talks for merger

This could potentially be a very big deal. Lionsgate Entertainment and Summit Entertainment are currently in early negotiations for a possible merger. There are few details, as these are, again, early negotiations, but this h...


Review: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

It's a challenge to get angry over something you don't really care about. When your greatest emotion toward a thing is general apathy, then getting angry about it isn't worth your time. So it is a testament to how insanely stupid The Twilig...


The Flixist Show #3: Those Krokodil Blues

We have a surprisingly on point show today, where we discuss the new Twilight movie, the Akira remake, the new phenomenon of splitting up movies into two, and krokodil. Here's a good idea, guys. Don't look up krokodil. It's probably respons...


The Muppets are way into Twilight

If you don't follow Twilight or write for a movie website, you might not know that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1 is coming out this Friday. Well, the Muppets are certainly aware, and they dressed up to celebrate. I'd love to see ...


Gus Van Sant is totes Team Jacob, casts Lautner in film

Though Taylor Lautner: Action Star didn't work out quite well, looks like the kid is trying to add "indie darling" to a growing list of achievements that include "bang someone who has the same name as you" and "excelling in clothe...


First three Twilight movies coming to theaters again

NCM Fathom and Summit Entertainment are planning to celebrate the release of Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part I by having the first three (yes, there have already been three...) Twilight movies play in theaters across the U.S. in the weeks le...


Trailer: Breaking Dawn Part 1

And here's a brand new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. I still have no idea what's going on in this franchise, but know that there will be kinky vampire-on-human sex, a frilly wedding, and some werewolves trying to e...


New Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 poster

The full image of the official poster for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 has just been released by Summit. It pictures steely glares, a tight dress and Robert Pattinson's porcelain-doll-like skin. Seriously, I know he's supposed to be a vam...


Vampires are the new Vampires

It's nice to dream, but Fairies are the new Vampires? Not a chance. If anyone's thinking Spies are the new Vampires instead, that guy's just as delusional. No, if anything is set to replace the massive influx of vampire fiction dominating...


Twilight fans go crazy over Breaking Dawn at Comic Con

Proving that their fandom knows no bounds, Twilight fans started lining up three days in advance for the Breaking Dawn panel at San Diego Comic Con. Not for the movie itself, no. Just to see the panel meant to promote the upcoming film. Th...


Trailer: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

That title's quite the mouthful, isn't it? The newest installment of the Twilight series is hitting theaters November 18th, and I'm certainly excited! I haven't read the series myself, but if synopses are correct, this is the one where a f...


Watch the first (really) brief clips from Breaking Dawn

Did you hear that? That was the sound of my fiancee squealing with joy as she watched this ever-so-brief advertisement that features some even more ever-so-brief clips of Breaking Dawn, the impending conclusion to the Twilight series of fi...


MTV Movie Awards nominees announced

Awards season is long over and all the best films have walked away with their prestigious awards. But what about all the not-best films that people teenage girls liked? When do they get the credit they don't deserve? Who is willing to sink ...

The 31st annual Razzie nominations have been released, and much like The Social Network and Black Swan dominating the opposite end of the spectrum, films like The Twilight Saga: Eclipseand Avatar The Last Airbenderhave been listed numerous...
