I saw Killer Joe last night, so now I've got fried chicken on the mind. Ask us questions for tonight!   read

  Watch Video I just happened to watch Monty Python's The Meaning of Life over the weekend, and it reinforced two things. Meaning of Life is way better than Holy Grail. Graham Chapman was clearly the best out of all the members...   read

Spike Jonze is back in the realm of making bizarre movies with Her starring Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams. Phoenix plays a writer who buys a "newly developed operating system designed to meet the user's every needs." The...   read

Congratulations to Valerie Minnich! As tends to be the case with Nolan's Batmovies, I've been listening to the soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises a fair amount over the past month and a half. It's pretty awesome pump-m...   read

On this episode of The Flixist Show, back after a week's vacation, we pretty much entirely talk about the SNICK lineup on Nickelodeon from our childhoods. Is there actual movie talk? A bit. I briefly mention seeing Paranorman...   read

  Watch Video You know, I never found Emma Watson terribly attractive, probably because I could never get the image of her as the frizzy-haired little girl in the first Harry Potter movie. Even when she grew up through the series, I ...   read

I saw Paranorman yesterday, and it was awesome. You should go see it. Also, you should ask us questions! We'll answer all your questions from last week as well!   read

  Watch Video Play Dead asks the question that I've often asked when it comes to the zombie apocalypse: what will happen to all our pets? The short film follows a group of dogs as they find themselves separated from their masters and...   read

  Watch Video I had the pleasure of seeing The Thing for the first time on the big screen a couple weeks back (on 35mm, no less), and like most of you, the film left me with one lasting thought: "Gee, I wish that toy companies had pr...   read

  Watch Video Back in the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis days, it was actually surprisingly easy to find good videogames based on moves (look at any of the Super Star Wars games, most of the Disney movie platformers, and tons more)....   read

  Watch Video Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance was a guilty pleasure of mine this year, so this is some awesome stuff for me. This is a reel of deleted scenes from the film, and while a lot of them are on the uninteresting side, chec...   read

Looks like ol' Roundhouses and Hatin' Gays won't be returning to the proposed third Expendables picture (which Nic Cage will appear in). When asked about the possibility of his return, he was cordial and said that his ro...   read

Trailer: Dredd

  Watch Video Still not using the 3D subtitle, dammit. I don't think it's fair to expect GREAT things from Dredd, but damn it, it looks fun, and it's going to be a more satisfying movie than the Sylvester Stallone one (which is totally on...   read

Commercials director Adam Berg will be directing a remake of David Cronenberg's classic Videodrome, a story about a skeezy television producer descending into a world of madness and hallucinations as television dest...   read

Ok, on Twitter I said I was going to write this with a bad Confederate affectation, but screw you, I'm tired. This is the first poster for Spielberg's Lincoln starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln. As we can see from this...   read

GIVE US DEM QUESTIONS, MMHMM. There's laughs, there's terror, there's horrifying fan fiction. You love it.   read

This is one of those rumors that's so bonkers stupid that it'll either be debunked within the hour, or it'll turn out to be true, and we'll be sitting here, wondering where our sane world went. I don't know what It's on the G...   read

  Watch Video And what's that, you ask? Do you really need me to spell it out? In order for The Avengers to not be a complete and utter piece of s**t (which is totally is), it needed more of HARRY DEAN MOTHERF**KING STANTON. Iron Man...   read

  Watch Video Here we've got the second trailer for Wet and Reckless from The FP mastermind Jason Trost. It goes a bit more into the whole treasure hunting plot the reality TV stars find themselves embroiled in after their produ...   read

Trailer: Citadel

  Watch Video Citadel took the Midnighter Audience Award at SXSW this year, but I've never heard of it. I gotta say, it looks promising. Tommy Cowley (Aneurin Barnard) loses his wife after an attack by a group of thugs and devel...   read

Review: Cosmopolis

  Watch Video I've always been a big defender of Robert Pattinson. My argument is that he's a reasonably normal person and a solid actor that got trapped by the Twilight franchise playing a character he himself admits is really pretty...   read

Disney has officially announced the release date for the upcoming Avengers sequel. It's May 1st, 2015. Joss Whedon, as we know, is returning to write and direct the film. No announcements have been made on whic...   read

Surprisingly, despite the title, this is one of our tamer episodes. We actually have a good deal of serious conversation about the future of Daredevil with Marvel Studios, the possibility that the Robocop remake might be...   read

Here's a rumor about an idea that's in "non-business conversation[s]," so treat it as just a sorta kinda maybe thing. As with basically every vaguely cinematic, hugely-popular television show, rumors are floating around that ...   read

I got Sleeping Dogs yesterday, and now all I want to do is watch John Woo's Hong Kong movies. I could watch The Killer and Hard Boiled every day until I die, and I'd still grin like a son of a bitch the whole way through. Ask us your questions, for tomorrow we record.   read

So much for that great header. Focus Features has dropped a proposed sequel to David Cronenberg's 2006 Eastern Promises, which would have reunited David Cronenberg with Vincent Cassel and Viggo Mortensen as their characters f...   read

  Watch Video On any given day, you see a lot of these sorts of mashups on the internet, and a lot of them, for me, live in that grey area between boring and awful. This one, however, from Dondrapersayswhat, features "Baby Got Back," a so...   read

  Watch Video I tend to forget that there are other film adaptations out there aside from David Lean's immortal 1946 version* of Great Expectations. Mike Newell is the latest gentleman to take on Charles Dickens's novel of love and coming...   read

  Watch Video Ok, first thing's first: this is basically just a seventeen-minute ad for LEGO products. That's just a fact. That said, it's a very well-made little short film, featuring some pretty wonderful 3D animation. It's very Pixar-e...   read

 

About Alex Katzone of us since 3:30 AM on 02.17.2011

Alex Katz, not to be confused with the famous painter, basically did nothing in college but watch movies, write about them, and try in vain to learn computer animation. One time, he watched the long tracking shot at the end of Children of Men six times in a row. It was basically the best day of his life. He has also written three screenplays that, God willing, no one will ever be forced to read again.
