A Quiet Place 2 looks to explore the monsters' origins

A Quiet Place is a super great movie that deserved all the praise and success it received last year. We even gave it our coveted Golden Cage for best horror movie! But such success always comes with a sinister caveat--sequels. It's been kno...

Review: The Secret Life of Pets 2

The first The Secret Life of Pets was a big hit, not only because it functioned as a children's movie but because it had lots of fluffy animals that could be turned into toys and then bought by children. You have to keep the momentum g...

Flixist on YouTube - Top 3 Third Films in A Franchise

We can all agree John Wick 3 rocked the box office and all of our minds with Parabellum as the 3rd entry into the franchise. But how rare is it for a third film in a franchise to be so good? I answer that question with the latest edition to...

The inevitable John Wick 4 has been confirmed

If you've seen the end of John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum then you know that it wasn't really the end. In fact, I'd argue the film was much akin to Infinity War in that it set up the greater conflict to come and felt more like ...

Review: Avengers: Endgame

"Avengers assemble" is a stupid line. Actually, it's a stupid line when spoken out loud. In comics it's a great line. You've got the alliteration of the two As lining up in print. It rolls across the eyes when read and you can do some great...

DOOM: ANNIHILATION trailer is getting annihilated on YouTube

I think it's safe to say that so far the upcoming video game adaptation, DOOM: ANNIHILATION has opened its own little portal to hell (har har), since at the time of writing it sits at 300 likes to over 3,000 dislikes on YouTube. This is ex...

Space Jam 2 is confirmed to begin filming this summer

This isn't really that big a deal to anyone, but Space Jam 2 will begin filming this summer according to Lebron James. We knew it was coming soon so filming had to start soon. They've actually got a decent director helming it in T...

Breaking Bad movie will land on Netflix first, is a sequel

If you're like me, and according to Netflix's reported numbers a lot of you are, then you pretty much watched all of Breaking Bad on Netflix. Honestly, it was a great way to watch a show that burns slower than that rash you've had for ...

Review: Happy Death Day 2U

Happy Death Day, for me, was a movie that was crushed under expectations. What I wanted was a bloody slasher film that took Groundhog Day and turned it into an excuse for increasingly ridiculous death sequences. What I got was a P...

Review: The LEGO Movie: The Second Part

There are two (maybe three, but we'll get to that) sorts of people who are definitely going to like The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, kids, and people who like LEGOs. It’s not that it’s bad, cause it’s not. It's good...

Shaft's latest trailer shows old age can't stop a badass

Warner Bros. uploaded a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Shaft sequel and I'm surprised at how good it looks. I've never associated Shaft with being low quality or bad, but I don't remember the last film being that fondly remembered. Now...

Review: Glass

I have one line from Unbreakable in my head after viewing Glass. David Dunn (Bruce Willis) has accepted his status as a superhuman being and calls Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), asking him what he's supposed to do. "It's all right to be ...

Venom 2 confirmed by Sony, new director likely

Venom was a massive hit. Not with critics, and not with my older brother and I when we drunkenly watched it a few weeks ago. But certainly with mainstream audiences, who flocked to theaters to see Venom, providing Sony with a cool $855 mill...

Star Wars Episode IX is set a year after Episode VIII

While Star Wars: The Last Jedi was set immediately after the events of The Force Awakens, it seems that the still untitled Episode IX will have a much bigger gap in time chronologically.   In an interview with Empire, none other t...

Review: Bumblebee

Michael Bay lost it somewhere along the way. Sure, he was always grandiose and absurd, but his action held together and his movies were fun. Look back at any of his classics and they are still exactly that. At one point, he was a good actio...

Review: Mary Poppins Returns

We're in an era of sequels and remakes, and with 2018 being the biggest box office year in the history of cinema we're going to be getting plenty more. If a studio can bring something old and beloved back they're probably going to do it. It...

Candyman franchise reboot with Jordan Peele confirmed

Remeber Candyman? He's back! In Pog form! No, actually, movie form, though some sweet Candyman Pogs would totally round out my collection of super dated things.  As previous rumors stated MGM has partnered with Monk...
