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...

Review: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

I've been trying to hard not to demean the merit of computer animation, so hopefully this won't come across as a backhanded compliment—with the How to Train Your Dragon series, I truly felt like I was watching films, rather ...

Taron "Eggsy"erton won't appear in third Kingsman film

I've only briefly touched upon my utter adoration for Taron Egerton (and Ansel Elgort) when I reviewed Billionaire Boy's Club, but please dear reader do not mistake: I have the biggest man crush on this beautiful Welshman. He knocked his pe...

Review: Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed is the final chapter in a franchise that has been solemnly focused on one thing. No, not the bondage or the S&M, though those do play a crucial role in dressing up (or stripping down) the focal-point of this series. R...

Review: Pitch Perfect 3

I don’t know what I was expecting. The Pitch Perfect series has never been remarkable, but also never distasteful enough to shout about it on the internet for an extended period of time. It exists for the sole purpose of entertaining ...

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes

Combing through nostalgic culture has become the norm, and unfortunately, so have the middling resulting projects. Audiences have, sadly, come to expect reboots to suffer as studios struggle to re-capture what made something popular in the ...

Review: Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me was a revelation when it first hit theaters. A villain choosing fatherhood over his proclivity for evil deeds was a novel idea, and it was much more than the minion flavored marketing would have you believe. Then those minions...

 
 
 
 
Logan Review photo

Review: Logan

(This is a republishing of the original review, which posted two weeks ago.) Logan is a response to a litany of unprecedented events. Comic book films are more popular than ever, the X-Men series is still a viable franchise s...

 
 
 
Logan SB spot photo

Logan gets a damn good Super Bowl spot

Logan has basically been a master class as to how to generate hype from trailers. Although we've seen most of the same footage -- this Super Bowl spot does include a few seconds of new stuff -- I'm pretty sure each time we see it it's been ...

 
 
Logan Trailer photo

Newest Logan trailer is bloody good

We were all stricken by the first Logan trailer for its gritty setting, somber tone, and older Logan, and it looks like the second trailer delivers that even more so. The third, and final, Wolverine film follows Logan as he struggles to kee...

Tetris is getting a big budget, Chinese trilogy

This year we have four videogame adaptations hitting theaters and there's no sign of stopping anytime soon. The only problem with this is none of these films look particularly gripping with Warcraft, Assassin's Creed, and The Angry Bir...

 
 
 
Apocalypse trailer photo

First trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is blue

X-Men: Days of Future Past was one of the best surprises of last year. First Class was a bit rough, but Days took that foundation and built some good stuff on top of it. But while it managed a fine balance, it was a bit overstuffed thanks t...

 
 
Review: Human Centipede 3 photo

Review: The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

I did not care for the first Human Centipede. It was a generic torture porn with a couple gimmicks in the centipede itself and the claim of being 100% medically accurate. As a jaded horror fan, I spent most of it yawning (cringing only duri...

Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3

If you're one of many people, like myself and the rest of the Flixist staff, then you're anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, Furious 7. That's all thanks to the work of Justin Lin, and while he may n...

 
 
Mockingjay Part 1 Review photo

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

The Hunger Games has come a long way. From humble meh-ish beginnings, to a sequel that, well, caught fire in theaters, the films have gotten increasingly better the more comfortable everyone gets with the material. Going into the latest, Mo...

Final trailer for The Expendables 3

Due to some unfortunate events, a digital copy of The Expendables 3 was leaked onto the Internet and was pirated more than 2 million times. Now Lionsgate is trying to sue the individuals responsible claiming that the piracy will hurt their...

 
 
V/H/S/3 photo

First trailer for V/H/S: Viral is pretty freaky

The third film in the V/H/S series, V/H/S: Viral, has a first trailer that still looks like this series is gonna spook the bejeebus out of me. I'm not a fan of found footage (or horror in general), but I do love anthologies where each segm...

Transporter series getting rebooted with a new trilogy

With all of the reboots and sequels going around these days, it was only a matter of time that we rebooted a series whose last installment hit less than six years ago. But since that's at least twenty years in Internet time, we're getting m...

Locke and Key movie execs wary of three-year-old TV pilot

How did I miss that they'd announced a Locke & Key trilogy? What is quite possibly my favorite self-contained comic series (a scant one issue away from it's conclusion, due out NEXT WEEK), by one of my absolute favorite authors (Jo...

Expendables 3 adds Cage, Chan, Snipes and Jovovich

Okay, I'm going to type this calmly. You know how awesome The Expendables was when Sylvester Stallone, Ahnuld Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis had that one scene together? You know how awesome The Expendables 2 wasn't because it decided to ...

UPDATE: Joe Hill's Locke and Key gets a film trilogy

UPDATE: Roberto Orci has confirmed, via Twitter (using a single word no less), that Locke and Key is really getting a film trilogy! Original story below.  Several people in the comic world have told me that I'm missing out on awesomene...

Trailer: Don Hertzfeldt Volume 2: 2006-2011

This past March, I accomplished two personal goals: Meet/interview Don Hertzfeldt and watch the final trilogy in his short film series, affectionately titled "The Billogy." I definitely set the bar exceedingly high when it comes to my pers...

What was once a quick a quick and enjoyable read for children and adults alike has now officially been turned into an epic, three-part, fantasy saga. Yes, Peter Jackson has worked out whatever needed to be worked out and will return to shoo...

Fox signs Matthew Vaughn for X-Men: First Class sequel

The news 20th Century Fox wanted us to see was that production president Emma Watts will be keeping her job through at least 2015. This was important because she has made a point of getting talented directors attached to Fox's films and kee...

I Pegg The World's End to be Wright around the corner

Really bad joke title not withstanding, it's still great news to hear that Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's The World's End is still being developed slowly but surely. The so-called "Three Flavours Trilogy" aka "The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy...
