Lake Nowhere Review photo

Review: Lake Nowhere

I saw Lake Nowhere last Halloween. I first heard about the film about a month prior, at the press screening for The Last Witch Hunter. A friend of mine brought as his +1 someone who worked on the film, who for the purposes of anonymity I wi...

Review: I Am Chris Farley

When I went into I Am Chris Farley, I couldn't have honestly said that I was a fan of his work. Not because I didn't like it, but because I didn't know it particularly well. I'd seen some stuff over the years, but I missed his tenure o...

First teaser for Jingle All the Way 2

You know how Larry the Cable Guy rolls his eyes at the end of the teaser? That's pretty much how I'm feeling right now. Thank Jebus it's only thirty seconds long...and direct to DVD. At least it's easier to avoid that way. Produced by WWE ...

New Releases, week of 2/22/14: Nice Day for a Wedding

Earlier this year I had finally caught up on Game of Thrones. Never seen the show before now, but after some boredom and prodding from others, I finally gave the show a shot. I was instantly hooked and blasted through three seasons in under...

New Releases, week of 2/8/14: Movie Buyers Club Edition

As the best of 2013 continue to release on home video, we've got another particularly interesting week. First off is Dallas Buyers Club (a film filled with such great performances, it made my Top 15 of 2013 list), then About Time (which als...

New Releases, week of 1/18/13: Really Good Week Edition

Looks like last year's award winnings movies and indie releases are finally hitting home video. And each of them is worth a watch. First off there's You're Next, a horror film that came out of nowhere to become one of last year's best films...

New Releases, week of 1/11/14: Run Away Already Edition

This week's home video releases are full of smaller films that may or many not be that great. There's the one that stars Justin Timerlake and Ben Affleck, Runner Runner, there's one with a big ass spider, Big Ass Spider! (yes that exclamati...

New Releases, week of 12/21/13: The Lone D Edition

This week's home video releases involve a bunch of movies we regrettably did not get to review here on Flixist. First off there's a movie only Liz saw apparently since it tanked so bad, The Lone Ranger. Secondly, there're two movies I'm mos...

New Releases, week of 12/14/13: #FAMILY Edition

It's a big week for home video releases. First of all there's the elephant in the room. Fast & Furious 6 hits home video after the tragic death of Paul Walker. The silver lining in all of this is when you buy it (and you will buy i...

Part of sales of Fast & Furious 6 going to charity

Since the death of Paul Walker things have been very up in the air with Fast & Furious 7, but Universal is stepping up and creating some good out of it. A percentage of the sales from Fast & Furious 6's Blu-ray/DVD release will...

New Releases, week of 12/7/13: Sequelitis Edition

This week's home video releases involve two big sequels: one revered, one reviled. The Wolverine (and subsequently a re-release of the entire X-Men series so far) hits DVD and Blu-ray while the less said about The Smurfs 2, the better. It'l...

New Releases, week of 11/30/13: T-RED-ing Lightly Edition

This week's biggest home video release isn't a movie, it's a TV show. Breaking Bad finished its final run of episodes a few months back and now it's finally available on home video. I haven't seen the final episode yet, so I can't really ju...

New Releases, week of 11/23/13: F**king Planes Edition

I've been salty toward Disney's Planes since it was first announced. Its very existence angered the hell out of me. A Pixar dropped spin-off of an ailing franchise originally meant for home video but was released to theaters anyway? And the...

New Releases, week of 11/16/13: Turbo Man Edition

This week's home video releases just remind me that I need to see Jingle All the Way again, and the upcoming holiday season is just making that worse (check back with Flixist in December for a big holiday thing). First off there's Man of St...

New Releases, week of 11/9/13: Grown Hobbits Edition

New Releases, week of 11/2/13: Gettin' RIPPED Edition

This week's new home video releases include a few we didn't get to review here on Flixist, but they're still notable nonetheless. First off there's Monsters University, Pixar's first (and hopefully only) prequel. The film was charming enoug...

New Releases, week of 10/26/13: Only Barbie Forgives

There are lots of big home video releases this week. On the new side we have Before Midnight (the third part of the Before trilogy), Only God Forgives (a film that Hubes (RIP) didn't like but seems to resonate with others), The Conjuring (t...

New Releases, week of 10/19/13: Jaeger Bomb Edition

Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim hits stores today, meaning the movie may turn a decent profit yet on top of the Chinese box office returns. By far, this is the biggest new release this week, with The Heat starring Sandra Bullock and Meliss...

Superman 75th short screened at NYCC

At the Superman 75th Anniversary panel most of the discussion was on the legend of Superman and the comic book itself, but we got to check out two things from the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of Man of Steel, which lands on November 12.&nbs...

New Releases, week of 5/12/13: Pocket Monster Edition

Pokemon X and Y are releasing this week, so that's all I've been thinking about for awhile. I remember movies are a thing, but now that Pokemon is going to be like a portable version of Pokemon Stadium, I'm all bout this. Pokemon X and Team...

New Releases, week of 10/5/13: Mermaid Tattoo Edition

You ever feel like the stars align just for you? That's what I'm feeling with the home video releases this week since almost everything pertains to my interests. First of all, The Little Mermaid (otherwise known as the best Disney film of a...

New Releases, week of 9/28/13: Iron Mensch Edition

The biggest home video release this week is most definitely Iron Man 3. I didn't like the film as much as most folks did, but it has its charms I guess. Whatever. If Iron Man 3 isn't your bag, then luckily there's a good amount of other stu...

New Releases, week of 9/21/13: World War Hee Hee Edition

The big new release of the week is the in-name-only adaptation of World War Z. Once maligned and expected to tank, the movie wound up being profitable and there's talk of a sequel. Other big new things this week include Sofia Coppola's The ...

New Releases, week of 9/14/13: Star Trek Into Extras BS

The big new release this week is Star Trek Into Darkness, though you may feel a little ripped off if you buy it. And no, I'm not referring to the derivative storytelling or the fan-fiction vibe of the script. You see, the bonus features for...

New Releases, week of 9/7/13: Sabrina's Cat Edition

When the Sabrina the Teenage Witch show aired as part of ABC's TGIF lineup, I thought it was the neatest show (but Boy Meets World had it beat, hands down) since the animatronic cat on the program was named Salem and was voiced by the same ...

New Releases, week of 8/31/13: The Replacements Edition

I know there was some crazy stuff that happened in the music industry over the weekend that everyone's been talking about on the internet, so I figured we should address the matter here on Flixist. I'm speaking, of course, about the reunion...

Review: The Happy Life

I've been playing music for years off and on, but I've never been particularly great at it. Mostly I play the drums, but even before my multiple wrist surgeries I was no Neil Peart. Now I'm just kind of useless. I look at my drum set, pick ...

New Releases, week of 8/24/13: Starzinger Edition

When I was a kid, I used to watch the same three or four episodes of Spaceketeers (aka Starzinger) on a VHS tape over and over again. I never knew how the series ended or where the story was going to go, but I just kept watching those episo...

New Releases, week of 8/17/13: Olympus Edition
