Maybe we SHOULD try to #MakeSolo2Happen

You know what's a beautiful, wholesome thing? Fandom. I think of my frequenting New York Comic Con every October, and for as much as I love rummaging through longboxes of comics and waiting in line to play video games, I see people just ple...

The multiverse will ruin the MCU

Within my social circles, I'm known for my enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Heck, I even sat through all of Inhumans, if you want an idea of how much a completionist I am. But to the surprise of many, I'v...

Review: Aladdin

Apprehension, noun: anxiety or fear that something bad or unpleasant will happen. Disney’s original Aladdin is iconic. Robin Williams, in voice only, gave arguably his most memorable (and best) performance ever. Gilbert Gottfried&rsqu...

Taika Waititi's Akira adaptation gets a release date

We've been around this gritty, high-tech-low-life, cyberpunk block before. News trickles out about the live-action adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's landmark manga and 1988 animation Akira, and then things go silent, and it's back to square o...

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: Brightburn

There's an interesting concept behind Brightburn. We take the Superman myth and instead of him being instilled with good morals by two wonderful Kansans he turns out evil instead. There's so much to unpack in that concept. Debates about nat...

Everything about the new Star Trek: Picard trailer is good

CBS may have lost a ton of fans with the lackluster second season of Star Trek: Discovery but that doesn't mean they're going to stop making Star Trek shows, and they know one way to get fans slobbering is to bring back Captain Jean L...

I've never seen There Will Be Blood and I'm not proud of it

(Editor's Note: After discovering the movies that the staff hasn't watched they've all been fired. We will rebuild with people who actually enjoy watching movies.) We've all got that movie right? The one that we keep saying we're going to w...

Sure, let's make Danny DeVito Wolverine

Another day passes, so here's another petition to make Danny DeVito some beloved pop culture character. Whether it's Detective Pikachu or Dr. Eggman, the internet really wants the grimy gremlin from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia to embo...

Crawl is going to be rated R, thank god

I'm very excited for Alexandre Aja's Crawl. It's been a while since we had an alligator horror movie to be excited about, and Aja's The Hills Have Eyes reboot is one of the very best remakes ever committed to film. The only question that re...

Terminator: Dark Fate goes hunting in first trailer

Well, if you're going to reignite excitement over a franchise that I'd struggle to still call a franchise at this point this trailer is the way to do it. Taking the cliche tactic of playing a slow, dramatic cover of a song over an action m...

New trailer for The Nightingale seeks bleak vengeance

Coming off of a hot horror film (or anything so overtly genre, really) can be an incredibly interesting time for a filmmaker. Do they continue to solidify their understanding of a genre's mechanics, maybe the way Jordan Peele jumped f...

The cast is set for Christopher Nolan's Tenet

Though details are still sparse, I think for many even the smallest morsel of information on a new Christopher Nolan film is something we can all at least dream of getting excited about. Today brings news of new additions to the cast of the...

Game of Thrones' biggest death was the death of logic

With HBO's Game of Thrones being perhaps the biggest pop culture television phenomenon of the past decade, all of the close examination and scrutiny that came with it in its final year made sense. The eighth and final season has gone, and o...

Review: Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight

When I covered Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn back in March, I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed afterwards. The movie itself is still pretty good, but I remembered the series being so much better than what Journey's Da...

Review: Avengement

Avengement is an objectively dumb title. Yes, it's a correct description of what occurs in the film (dude gets mad vengeance), but it's not a word anyone really uses, and it's bound to make this flick dissolve at least somewhat into the bac...

Michael Pena joins the neverending Tom and Jerry feud

See Godzilla: King of the Monsters early and free

I would not have guessed that as the MCU comes to a close the cinematic universe I am most excited to dive into would be the Godzilla/King Kong one, but here we are. After years of trying to make Godzilla work as a Western blockbuster they'...

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 ...

Good trailer, bad movie: the films we were duped into seeing

Have you ever watched a trailer that got you excited about a movie? I hope so, seeing as that is their main purpose. It's supposed to get you excited and bring you into the theater, right? It's such a rewarding feeling when the goodwill tha...
