Review: Cult of Chucky

Review: Jeepers Creepers 3

If you've read any of my posts for Flixist, you know that I approach most sequels not with trepidation, but with outright skepticism. This is because rather than being an earnest or needed continuation to a great story, they're cash grabs. ...

Jumanji: Welcometo the Jungle has 2nd trailer

The debut of a second official trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, let optimism shine it's goofy face on my otherwise dour, cynical visage. Was that a slight homage to the Robin Williams Jumanji of old? Did they just acknowledge its...

Bad Moms Christmas red band trailer has hos 'n' balls

Bad Moms Christmas made my must-see list for the Flixist annual fall movie preview (see the rest of our picks here) and several days later it conveniently dropped a red band trailer. Sorry internet, but there are no Mila Kunis nude sce...

Bruckheimer says that Pirates 6 is still possible

You thought it was over, didn't you? With Johnny Depp becoming the scummiest of scums, and his star on the wane, and a "disappointing" box office of only $792 million for the latest entry, it seemed pretty clear that the Pirates of the ...

Super Troopers 2 gets baked, and trailer!

Super Troopers the original was left in a basket on our doorsteps all the way back in 2002. Probably around the same time some of you were delivered to your parents by giant, lice-ridden birds. In other words, it's been a while. But&nb...

Bad Boys 3 probably really actually not going to happen

Three years ago almost to the day Martin Lawrence announced that Bad Boys 3 was a thing, and that it was actually going to happen for real. Well, it turns out that it wasn't so "for real," and that, as with all other attempts to get th...

Thor: Ragnarok San Diego Comic-Con trailer is *$#%@!^ awesome

Thor: Ranarok had a tough encore. It's first trailer was the stuff of movie nerd wet dreams and it bowed during the Super Bowl. It's hard to make a better entrance than that. Now disregard everything I just said, as its second trailer just ...

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature has a trailer

With a title like The Nut Job 2 being tossed about, my expectations were unusually high. So, it's not a Mel Gibson biopic. Big deal. And no, it's not a cleverly veiled marketing ploy for Charlie Sheen's 9/11 movie--whatever the hell th...

Bad Moms Christmas has a trailer involving moms at Christmas

Bad Moms was probably one of the biggest surprises of my movie watching career. From what looked like a low-budget cash in on raunchy, female-led comedies came a smart, and funny story that played with movie gender tropes in clever way...
